MobiKwik, IRCTC tie up for e-cash payments for tatkal bookings
MobiKwik, India’s largest independent payments company, trusted by over 35 million users, has announced its partnership with Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), a subsidiary of the Indian Railways that handles the catering, tourism and online ticketing operations to power e-cash payments for tatkal bookings with a much higher success rate than other modes of online payment.
Instantaneous payments with MobiKwik will help tatkal online in managing the load of over a thousand ticket bookings per minute. The service will also help users in ensuring that their bookings do not get rejected due to payment delays.
Speaking on the announcement, Upasana Taku, Co-founder at MobiKwik said, “MobiKwik collaborated with Indian Railways to digitize payments on the IRCTC app and IRCTC FoodOnTrack app this year, and now we are powering payments for tatkal online, that will help users book tickets almost instantly.
We are proud to support the largest rail network in Asia in their endeavor to digitize payments and provide the best payments experience to their users.” Tatkal is a special high demand service that was launched for the benefit of passengers.
