By: DoYouKnow.IN$ | Views: 1858 | Date: 29-May-2013

IRCTC website is set to undergo a major overhaul that would cost about Rs. 100 crore.

Indian Railways' IRCTC website gets a massive number of hits every day. However, IRCTC is flooded with complaints with regards to slow loading/crashing of the site and failure to complete ticket booking procedures. It is often criticised for its incapability of handling huge web traffic.

IRCTC Upgradation

However, IRCTC is now looking to address these complaints, as it reveals plans to boost the site to book 7,200 e-tickets per minute. In a presentation on upgrading the IRCTC website, IRCTC Managing Director R K Tandon said the upgrade would cost about Rs. 100 crore. CRIS, the technical arm of railways, will also be participating in the upgrading of the IRCTC website.

The official says the upgrading site is a continuous process and that an average booking per day has been increased from 3.67 lakh in 2012 to 4.15 lakh now.

Currently, the site is capable of handling 1.2 lakh concurrent connections on web servers and can book about 2000 tickets per minute.

It's notable 37 percent of 31 crore reserve tickets being booked in a year are booked online and 8 percent through ticketing agents. Ex-Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal had announced in his Rail Budget 2013-14 plans to increase IRCTC capacity to 7200 tickets per minute as well as improving the site's efficiency.
