As promised in Railway Budget 2016-17, Indian Railways proudly announce the launch of e-booking service for journalist to reserve tickets on the concessional passes available to them.
Till now the facility for journalist to book the ticket on concessional passes was available only on the PRS counters. With this launch the facility has been extended to book ticket over internet using the Indian Railway’s E-ticketing System www.irctc.co.in.
