IRCTC launches cash on delivery system to book train tickets on pilot basis
Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has launched cash on delivery (CoD) system for rail ticketing.
With this initiative, passengers can now book a rail ticket online and get it delivered at home where the payment can be made.
IRCTC has launched this CoD scheme on pilot basis. Initially, this service will be available in more than 200 cities.
Passengers can book a rail ticket 5 days prior to commencement of journey. But CoD scheme will charge additional Rs 40 for the delivery of each Sleeper Class ticket, Rs 60 for an AC class ticket.
In this case, passengers can book tickets on IRCTC mobile application or on web-portal BookMyTrain.com. IRCTC has authorized Anduril Technologies through their web-portal (BookMyTrain.com) to provide CoD services.
