IRCTC Launches Cash on Delivery (CoD) For Train Booking

Railway Reservation Through Cash on Delivery

IRCTC has recently launched an ambitious plan of rail ticketing, known as Cash on Delivery (CoD). Under this system, customers will make payment for the booked train tickets at the time of delivery of ticket through courier, making the payment more convenient. Through this innovative method, IRCTC plans to serve those customers who are not willing to use their credit / debit cards for making online payments or those who don't have net banking facility. This will certainly encourage the general masses to make online railway ticket booking. This in turn will reduce burden on reservation counters of Indian Railways and may solve the problem of long queues.

IRCTC has authorised Anduril Technologies to provide CoD services through their website and the related mobile app which is available for Android, iOS, Windows and Black Berry mobiles.

This scheme has initially been launched on pilot basis in about 200 cities, to be extended gradually. Tickets can be booked at least 5 days before the commencement of journey. Customers will be required to pay Rs. 40 for the delivery of Sleeper Class ticket and Rs. 60 for an AC class ticket.
