Children’s summer vacations continue, as people plan to go to different places. Now if you want to go for a walk, you have to book a train ticket. Let us tell you that IRCTC has also introduced some new rules for booking train tickets. IRCTC has recently made some changes to the current way of booking train tickets online. To book train tickets online, users will now have to verify their mobile phone number and email ID. Earlier, this step was not mandatory for booking tickets, but now this rule has become mandatory since a few days ago. Users who have not used the IRCTC website to book tickets in the past few years will have to go through a few steps.
Users will get a popup screen after logging in to verify their email id or mobile numbers. Users are required to verify the email ID / mobile number displayed on the screen and enter the OTP received on the email ID or mobile number to complete the verification process.
