The long and irritating experiences of booking train ticket through IRCTC website seems to be a thing of past now as the Railways has launched the next generation e-ticketing system, enhancing the booking capacity to 7200 tickets per minute and making the whole process much faster and easier.
“It was a rail budget commitment which was fulfilled today,” Railway Minister Sadanand Gowda said after launching the next generation e-ticketing system.
The new system developed by Centre for Railway information Systems (CRIS) with an estimated cost of Rs 180 crore would allow booking of 7200 tickets per minute against 2000 tickets in the old system.
With the launch of the system, now 1,20,000 concurrent users can book e-tickets simultaneously against the earlier capacity of 40,000 concurrent users at a time.
Expressing his happiness on the successful implementation of the faster e-ticketing system which was part of the rail Budget proposal, Gowda said “budget was presented two months and five days ago in Parliament, and now we are launching it.”

He hoped with this pace all budget proposals would be implemented before the next budget though only six months left for the next year budget.
Besides e-ticketing, Gowda launched a series of IT-enabled initiatives for rail users including train enquiry mobile application and Go-India smart card.
Online system like e-Demand and e-Diversion for freight service was also launched by Gowda booking wagons and making payment without going to counters.
“Railways is part and parcel of development. It is in the mind of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. PM said all operational part of railways should be covered through online system,” the Railway minister said.
