The new rules come into effect with the train tickets being booked only after verifying the mobile number and email id. For getting train tickets online the concerned authority has formulated certain stringent rules and regulations in order to avoid chaos and genuine authentication of passengers.
For online railway ticket booking, there should be proper verification of email address and mobile number. Previously there were no such verification methods, however, those who have registered on the site for consecutive tickets do not have such verification. Initially, you will receive an OTP to the mobile number and e-mail provided for online ticket booking. It is now mandatory to undergo such a verification process before purchasing a ticket from the IRCTC portal.
