Good news for Indian Railways passengers is coming out. Now travelers will get more tickets available for Tatkal Ticket Booking. So now they will not need to get disappointed due to the unavailability of seats in trains. It will happen because the railway has removed much illegal software that many train ticket booking agents were using to block the train tickets. Earlier they block the train tickets from Tatkal quota and sell to passengers at very high costs.
According to Mr. Arun Kumar, Director General, Railway Protection Force (RPF) after blocking these software passengers will have more Tatkal Tickets available for booking. According to Indian Railways much illegal software like MAC, ANMS were used by illegal agents for this ticket blocking. Train ticket booking agents were using this software for bypassing normal ticket booking steps like CAPTCHA and OTP and make the process faster for them as compared to normal people who were trying to book Tatkal Ticket.
According to Indian Railway, now illegal software are not active and hopes they will not act in the future also. As well as normal booking time of legal train ticket booking agents is also reduced from 2:55 minutes to 1:48 minutes.
Indian Railways has arrested many agents who were using illegal software for Tatkal Ticket booking and earning lots of money by selling tickets at a very high cost.
After this step from Indian Railway now people will enjoy more Tatkal tickets when they book train Tatkal Tickets.
