Railways yet again came with an innovative way to encourage passengers to link their Aadhar numbers with IRCTC account. Railways has increased the monthly cap to 12 from 6 on tickets booking on IRCTC online portal if their Aadhar number is linked to their onlince IRCTC account. However, passengers can still book upto 6 tickets without linking their Aadhar number.
Here is how you can update your Aadhar number on IRCTC portal. Go to ‘My profile’ category, select ” Aadhaar KYC” and update your Aadhaar number here. A one-time password (OTP) should be entered for verification which will be sent to the mobile number linked to Aadhaar number entered.
If passenger books more than 6, the Aadhaar number of one of the passengers should also be updated in the IRCTC account. This will also be validated via OTP. Users can store the names of verified passengers accompanying them on the ‘master list’.
This move is expected to eliminate malpractices in ticket bookings as touts and travel agents cannot create fake user IDs anymore.
