first_imgThe Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) announced that it has upgraded its website by introducing two high capacity servers that have doubled peak time efficiency.According to the IRCTC, its portal installed two Linux-enabled servers raising the booking capacity to over 14,000 tickets per minute from the existing 7,200. The capacity augmentation has been done as an ‘immediate step’ to cater to the summer time demand for Tatkal tickets and a forenoon flurry in their online reservations, according to IRCTC Chairman and Managing Director, A K Manocha. “The measure is vital, considering that 54% train tickets in the country are booked through IRCTC website,” Manocha stated.On an average, the daily sale of train tickets through the portal, which is the world’s second busiest with three crore registered users, is around 5.5 to 6 lakh.“Even that was later found insufficient, given the summer time rush for Tatkal tickets – especially in premium trains plying between the most sought after destinations,” pointed out Manocha.The Tatkal reservations on all Indian Railways trains total roughly around 400,000 tickets. Of these, 50,000 tickets are slotted ‘critical’, given their high demand owing to various reasons during a given season.last_img read more
