Indian Railways changes ticket reservation rules

New Delhi: The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has  changed ticket reservation rules. Passengers whose Aadhar card are linked with IRCTC  can now reserve 24 tickets a month. Those who have not linked their Ids can book 12 tickets in a month. Earlier, passengers whose IDs were not linked had the option to book only 6 tickets in a month.

‘To facilitate passengers, the limit of booking tickets has been increased to 24 tickets in a month if a user ID is Aadhaar linked and that one of the passengers in the ticket to be booked is verifiable through Aadhaar,’ said Railways.
