Railways minimizes limits of maximum online bookings

New Delhi: In order to deter touts in online ticket booking, Indian Railways has minimized the limits for maximum tickets per month from 10 to 6.

According to the new guidelines, passengers can book only 6 tickets per month from one user ID.

The decision was taken as it was suspected that 10% users who booked 10 tickets every month — the current limit — might be involved in touting.

Booking is not allowed through e-wallet and cash cards from 8am to 12noon and there is only one booking in one user login session except for return/onward journey between 8am to 12noon.
