Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), the online ticketing operations of the Indian Railways, is soon going to make the process of its online signing up tougher.
As per leading media house, ticketing agents make thousands of fake User IDs for booking e-tickets on IRCTC website. Railways officials opine that these agents use fake name and register themselves on IRCTS. By using several apps on Google, these agents also book Tatkal tickets and sell it at costlier price.
Sources said that in order to make the signing up tougher, the IRCTC may propose an additional identity proof like driving license, voter card etc to verify the user other than just asking for a user ID, password and mobile number.
