IRCTC starts cash-on-delivery service on train tickets

The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has offered the delivery of rail tickets, allowing passengers to make payments through any payment mode, including cash. IRCTC, through its website and mobile app, has now introduced pay-on-delivery (PoD) as one of the payment options for its customers, said a senior IRCTC official. Delivering tickets at the consumer’s doorstep by offering the PoD option will help consumers who book through travel agents to move to the online mode. PoD charges will be Rs 90 plus sales tax for transactions up to Rs 5,000 and Rs 120 plus tax for transactions over Rs 5,000.
