IRCTCONLINERESEVATION is offering online services. such as- Indian Railways PNR Status Enquiry, Railway PNR Enquiry, Inquiry of PNR Status.

There is a very common technical reason behind this fact that IRCTC doesn’t allow us to book tickets according to our preference, and the problem behind this is PHYSICS.Booking a seat/seats in a train, is far more different than booking a seat in a theatre crutain. Theater is a Hall, where as trains is a moving object, so according to safety concern is very high in trains. IRCTC ticket booking Software or Applications designed in such a way that it will book tickets in a manner that will distribute the load evenly in a train.
NOW ,Let’s taken an example to make things more clearly : Imagine there are various Classes in a train and the numbered S1, S2 S3… S10, and Every coach there are 1-72 seats. So when someone first books a ticket, software will assign a seat in the middle coach like S5, The middle seat numbered between 20-30, and prefer lower berths. (Railways first fills the lower berths than upper one so as to achieve low center of gravity.)


The software booked seats in such a way that all the coaches have uniform passenger distributions and seats are filled starting from the middle seats like (36) to seats near about the gates i.e :- 1-2 or 71-72 in order from lower to upper breths. Railways (IRCTC) just want to ensure a proper balance that each coach should have for equal load distributions. That ‘s why and when we book a ticket in last and always allotted an upper berth and a seat numbered around 2-3 or 70, Except you are not taking a seat of someone who has cancelled their seat.
If the railways books the tickets randomly, Than A train is a moving to the objects which moves around at the speed of around 100-150Km/Hr on the track. So there are a lots of forces and mechanics acting on the train.
Now Just imagine If the coaches S1, S2, S3 are completely full and S5, S6 are full empty and others are partially full, so when the train taken turns, some coaches are keeping maximum centrifugal force and kept some minimum, and this creates a high chance of the derailment of train. This is a very technical aspect, when brakes are applied there will be different braking forces acting at the time and each of the coaches because of the huge differences in weight of coaches, so that the stability of train becomes an issue again.
Conclusion: There are many forces acting on moving objects/body. Dynamics of a moving body is completely different from a stationary one. So it’s always hard to understand a moving objects. And yes there are technical solutions behind this problems. Like we have developed Double-Decker trains which is an achievement in itself, because it achieves a very high center of gravity force, and for many countries in the world Double-Decker train isn’t possible.
Here, railway ticket booking software is decades oldest version, and at that time railway didn’t have much technology compared to the contemporary time.

In short, it can be stated that it is this transport medium that helps people to visit every part of India and to understand it much better. Besides this, it is also the cheapest mode of transportation not only in the country, but also acknowledged abroad. Even though inflation has raised double digits, the concerned authorities and the governments have tried to ensure that the prices of the fares do not raise more than the basic requirement, so that the poorest of the poor in the country can also apply it.

Besides it, there are several forms of discounts offered to the citizens in some form of the other, which further brings down the rates and helps them to avail the transport to reach their destination. It is really a wonder that is not otherwise seen even in the developed countries.

Steps for stopping the corruption in Tatkal Ticket Booking System

In the present scenario, most of the people want travel by train for their destination places from source places. But, due to heavy rush in the train it is not easy task for the passenger. So, there is scarcity of reservation ticket for travelling but railway ministry given facility for urgent ticket booking which having name is “TATKAL TICKET BOOKING SYSETM”. This booking service is available in both mode online and offline. But there is so many fraud activity is done during TATKAL TICKET BOOKING in online manner sometime in Offline mode also. Due to these activity, normal customer or passenger become victim of it.

Now question arise here why such activity is happened? Its answer is very easy, behind this activity several reason is there like:- limited seats available for “Tatkaal Quota” and number of ticket demand is so high, some broker gets ticket from ticket counter as well as  online by bad manner to earn money by selling the ticket to the customer. That’s why ticket availability becomes shortage very soon and several customers miss their reservation ticket. For removing such problems our government need to take some concrete steps for stopping such kinds of scams from “Tatkal ticket booking System”.

According to my opinion, what steps should be taken to eradicate such problem from Tatkal ticket booking system so that maximum people could avail this facility and that steps are shown below:

  • IRCTC website must be fully secured so that it could not be operated by some others plugins, tools, software. Sometime IRCTC website is hacked by someone and ticket become shortage to others customers.
  • Number of Tatkal ticket seats should be increased like double or triple so that more numbers of people can avail this services.
  • Number of compartment should be increased so that Tatkal seats could increase for the people.
  • In the festival season, there must be allocated some extra number of trains with tatkal reservation seats facility so that, in the case of emergency needy people can book the ticket in this special train also.
  • There should be established monitoring team to monitor the tatkal booking system at reservation counter. Because, we know that so many agents, broker perform their bad activity to book the ticket by bribery to railway staff and they ultimately sell that ticket to customer on high amount.
  • there should be proper verification of Id Proof during the Tatkal Ticket Booking so ticket could not booked by Fraud Id proof because, Broker always use Fraud ID card during Ticket Booking.

So, these are the basic some steps as well idea that can minimize the corruption In the Tatkal reservation Ticket Booking System. As we know that, population of our country is very high so completely removing of fraudism is very tedious task so, it can be minimized only
