The IRCTC has now authorized the popular e-ticketing website and app, RailYatri, to continue its ticket booking services months after the Delhi High Court called the services “unauthorized.”
RailYatri provides train-related information such as PNR status, live train status, station-to-station train, seat availability, and predictability of confirmation. It also offers online bus tickets, meal-on-train services and has recently expanded its IntrCity SmartBus fleet to 12 northern and southern cities.
Dismissing Stelling Technologies ‘ written petitions, which owns and manages the mobile application, the court said through its Railyatri platform on a “deeper consideration of the methodology developed by M / s Stelling. It is certainly unauthorized to connect customers to RSPs (Retail Service Providers) and to book tickets by collecting money in their wallet and earning income. ‘
The move was verified by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), which said integration was accomplished last week. Such integrations are vital to guarantee that passengers who book tickets on such portals are not compelled to pay any additional fees.
