Enjoy ticket booking with IRCTC e Wallet

To ease your pain booking train tickets online, IRCTC has launched e-Wallet scheme for all customers. Through this service, customers can now deposit money under IRCTC account and use that for booking train tickets, avoiding the long hesitating procedure to pay through bank’s payment gateway.

IRCTC e-Wallet scheme works just like any other e-Wallet service, where customers need to deposit money to their IRCTC account and use it up at the time of train ticket booking. Currently customers booking train tickets has to go through the hassle of making payment by going to their respective Credit/Debit Card or Net-banking payment gateway and then wait to get back to IRCTC website after the payment approval. The waiting to get back to IRCTC website after payment causes the trouble of session timeout or others eventually failing to book a ticket.

While the new e-Wallet scheme allows to bypass all this hassle, you just need to fill up your account with money and then when booking tickets pay using it. No going through the payment gateway and no wait for return, success rate for booking train ticket will be surely high.

  • NOTE: Users can deposit amount in multiple of Rs 100 only. The amount should be less than the maximum limit of Rs 5000 and all deposited money to e-Wallet is non-refundable.

e-Wallet Scheme is one of the best initiative by IRCTC, but if it serves the purpose is still doubt. As IRCTC won’t allow ticket booking through e-Wallet during 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM which is the peak hours of ticket booking, especially the Tatkal ticket booking. So restricting the use of e-Wallet during the hours when customers need service the most defeats the overall purpose of e-Wallet. Hope IRCTC will rethink on its restriction on e-Wallet during the peak hours.
