These documents will be required for rail ticket booking:
Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has made some changes in the rules for booking train tickets. Under the new order, booking of tickets is now possible only when the passenger concerned has his PAN, Aadhaar or passport information. According to the IRCTC management, the rules have been changed with the aim of excluding touts from ticket booking.
New ticket booking system:
Work is going on fast on IRCTC’s new system, in which you will have to link your Aadhaar-PAN. When you log in to book train tickets through IRCTC website or app, you will have to enter Aadhaar, PAN or Passport number.
The purpose of introducing a new system:
According to Arun Kumar, Director General, Railway Protection Force (RPF), the Railways is working on a plan to link identity documents with IRCTC. He said that earlier the action against fraud was based on human intelligence, but the effect was not enough. That’s why we have decided to link it with PAN, Aadhaar or other identity documents while logging in for the ticket.
