The Ministry of Railways has restricted the number of tickets that can be booked through its e-ticketing platform per user login session. Under the new rules, only one booking can be done with one log-in after which the booking session will expire during the peak hours.
"There will be a restriction of only one booking in one user log-in session in e-ticketing and forced logging out of the user before another booking for all users including IRCTC agents," said a Railway Ministry statement.
The restriction will be applicable while booking of e-ticket between 0800 hours and 1200 hours.
The restriction has been imposed to prevent touts from cornering tickets through single user logging facility.
However, this restriction will not be applicable while booking onward journey/return journey e-tickets.
