Using one user ID we can now book as many as only SIX online train tickets a month. Railway department made this decision as it was suspected that 10% users who booked 10 tickets every month might be involved in touting.

Earlier there was a limit for this same scenario of 10 tickets per month, which is now being limited to 6 tickets per month.

"The move (to limit number of online tickets) is aimed at deterring touts and facilitating genuine passengers," a railway official said.

People who travel frequently by train believes that the restriction may cause discomfort for them. Many have opinion that these touts and brokers would still find a way out by creating multiple user IDs.

Regular train travelers view on new booking limit

"If I go home every weekend from the city where I work and come back, I would need a minimum of eight tickets in a month. What do I do?" asked a regular passenger.

Among other measures already in force are debarring of all types of ticketing agents from booking tickets during the first 30 minutes of opening of booking, ie from 8am to 8.30am for general bookings, and from 10am to 10.30am and 11am to 11.30am for Tatkal booking in AC and non-AC classes, respectively.

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.

Earlier there were announcements of features which where welcomed by people around the country such as Tracking of Trains on Google maps.
