MobiKwik, a popular mobile wallet has recently collaborated with Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) to allow e-payments for Tatkal bookings.
“MobiKwik collaborated with Indian Railways to digitise payments on the IRCTC app and IRCTC FoodOnTrack app this year, and now we are powering payments for tatkal online that will help users book tickets almost instantly,” -Upasana Taku, co-founder, MobiKwik
The merger will prove to be a successful one as the problem of payments during booking can be managed and simplified via the mobile wallet caused because of the extreme load of bookings that take place every minute throughout the country. This also ensures that people’s tickets do not get rejected due to payment issues. 15% of the daily bookings happen via Tatkal which is why this merger can prove to be very essential and successful.
Also, the average time required to book a ticket via MobiKwik will be approximately two seconds provided that the user’s MobiKwik account is charged with the required amount. You can also avail the huge discounts which MobiKwik is providing in form of cash backs every time you book a Tatkal railway ticket via MobiKwik.
