Good news for those who are reluctant to use their credit or debit cards as well as those who don’t have net-banking facility. They can now book a rail ticket online and get it delivered at home where the payment can be made.
“One has to just book the ticket online and payments will be made at the time of delivery of tickets,” said an IRCTC official involved with the project.
To begin with, this “cash on delivery” system of rail ticketing has been launched on pilot basis and the service will be initially available in more than 200 cities.
Customers can book a ticket 5 days prior to commencement of journey. While Rs. 40 will be charged for the delivery of each Sleeper Class ticket, Rs. 60 will be charged for an AC class ticket.
