Now You Can Book 24 Tickets in a Month by Linking Aadhaar
Currently, people are permitted to book a maximum of 24 reservations in a single month, as long as they authenticate their ID with their Aadhaar number, and at least one other passenger is also verified with their Aadhaar.
No Aadhaar Verification is necessary for orders of up to 12 tickets in a month, the same as before. To take advantage of the ability to book more than 12 tickets and up to 24 tickets in a month, a IRCTC Registered User must first verify their identity using the Aadhaar KYC option in My Profile.
An OTP will be sent to the user’s mobile number connected to their Aadhaar number in order to verify the Aadhaar. If the OTP is successfully submitted, the user will be recognized as Aadhaar verified.
For any tickets being booked more than 12 times in a month, at least one passenger must be verified through their Aadhaar number.
It is necessary for users to confirm the potential passengers via their Aadhaar number and save the approved passengers in their passenger master list before commencing the ticket booking procedure for more than 12 tickets in a month.
It is also possible for the user to add the Aadhaar verified passenger from their master list at the time of booking for up to 24 tickets in a month.
