IRCTC Upgading its site

Dear readers, ther is some good news in the offing. IRCTC in its endeavour to provide hassle free service its online customers is upgading its site. Now the website will be able to book 8 lacs ticket per day.
According to a recent article published in TOI:

Both the IRCTC and the Centre for Railway Information System (CRIS) are working jointly to double the web site's capacity from the current four lakh bookings a day to eight lakh a day.

In recent past, a number of steps have been taken, including installation of high capacity database servers, and increasing the internet bandwidth from 344Mbps to 450Mbps. IRCTC has also deactivated thousands of the multiple user IDs and individual user IDs of agents, who would jam the systems, causing servers to hang during peak hours.

An IRTC official said, "The problem of failed transactions is also because of the system issues of banks with whom we have tied up. Ideally, a transaction should get completed in two minutes but on some payment gateways, the time taken is more than this, resulting in failed transactions."

The corporation, on its part, said it is working on a payment system that will reduce transaction failures. It is also trying to lessen the burden on their website by roping in other travel portals for faster bookings.
