Here we have explained the mode of payment for e-tickets via IRCTC e-wallet.
1. The user/customer needs to choose the ‘pay-on-delivery’ option while booking the ticket on IRCTC portal. As per the IRCTC, a user can have a maximum of six banks in his or her preference list.
2. The digital ticket delivery happens instantly via email/SMS. The collection happens within 24 hours of the booking. Customers can also pay online through a payment link that will be sent to them at time of booking.
3. AC Tatkal tickets booking will start from 10 am and non-AC ticket booking to begin at 11 am. You have to book the ticket a day before the travelling date.
4. If a train is more than three hours late, the passenger can claim complete refund of fare and Tatkal charges. A passenger can also claim a full refund if the train’s route is diverted and the passenger doesn’t want to travel on that route.
5. A passenger can claim refund on Tatkal tickets if the train’s route is diverted and the boarding station/destination or both are not on the diverted route.
