Now apart from paying through netbanking, credit and debit cards and other wallets users have the option to pay through their mobikwik wallet while booking tatkal tickets.


Mobikwik claims that the new service will allow users to pay with the wallet within 2 seconds whereas other modes of payment take 5 to 10 times more time . It will ensure that the customers bookings do not get rejected just because of payment delays. This facility is available on www.services.irctc.co.in and users can book their tickets between 8am and 12pm daily.

We are proud to support the largest rail network in Asia in their endeavour to digitize payments and provide the best payments experience to their users."
