The IRCTC initiative, which is called ‘Pay on Delivery’, now allows people to book their train tickets online and then get them delivered at home where they can pay via any payment mode including cash.

Giving more details IRCTC in a press release said that the“Security element” attached to revealing their debit/credit card details on Websites/Apps has often acted as a hindrance to Indian Consumers and thus they have decided to start this facility which gives them the option to get the ticket delivered at home and pay at their doorstep.

The delivery system will also facilitate those consumers who book through travel agents as they don’t have a debit/ credit card or access to net banking facility.



With this, they can simply book their tickets online themselves and pay for it later.

 

Further, the facility will also encourage people who book at railway reservation counters to move to online medium as its quicker and more accessible.

According to IRCTC, the step has been taken as they realized that many people hesitate to share their credit/debit card details online while booking e-tickets.
