What Happened: In a tweet, the IRCTC informed users that the ticketing service on its website and app is currently unavailable due to technical reasons. The corporation’s technical team is working on resolving the issue. In the meantime, the IRCTC suggested that users can book tickets through other B2C platforms like Amazon and MakeMyTrip.
Why It Matters: The temporary disruption of the IRCTC’s ticketing service could potentially affect a large number of users who rely on the platform for booking railway tickets.
