Railways to get 'next generation' e-ticketing system
New Delhi, Feb 26 : Indian Railways will introduce by the end of this year a "next generation" e-ticketing system that will improve the speed of online ticket booking, Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal said Tuesday.
The new system will have the capacity to book 7,200 tickets a minute as against the current capacity of 2,000, Bansal said while presenting the railway budget in the Lok Sabha.
Bansal pointed out that congestion at the IRCTC web site caused a lot of problem for passengers.
"The next generation ticketing system will significantly improve the situation," he added.
