Under the new provisions a maximum of 6 tickets can be booked online by an individual user in a month on IRCTC website
This new provision will come into effect w.e.f. 15th February, 2015
The move aims to deter touts and to facilitate genuine users
In order to facilitate genuine users and prevent touting activities, various checks have already been put in place for the booking of e-ticket/i-ticket on IRCTC website including the following existing provision: -
1. Individuals are allowed only 2 tickets per user-ID in a day (for ARP booking) from 08:00 hours to 10.00 hours.
