IRCTC allows Aadhaar-verified users book up to 12 tickets
New Delhi: Indian Railways on Friday raised the number of tickets booked on the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) portal from six to 12 for Aadhaar-verified users.
The move will encourage passengers to link their Aadhaar numbers to their online booking accounts on IRCTC.
IRCTC said if passengers want to book more than more than six tickets a month then the Aadhaar number of the user and one of the passengers should be updated in the IRCTC portal.
Steps to update Aadhaar number on the IRCTC portal:
- Click on Aadhaar KYC below 'my profile ' category.
- Update Aadhaar number.
- Enter one-time password (OTP) sent on the mobile number linked with Aadhaar.
In the IRCTC portal, six passengers can be reserved on a single ticket under general quota while Tatkal bookings allow four passengers per ticket.
