Train Ticket e-Booking: Should You Link Aadhaar Number With IRCTC Account?

Aadhaar number can be linked to your IRCTC account.


IRCTC, the e-ticketing arm of Indian Railways, has clarified on linking Aadhaar with your IRCTC account for booking train e-tickets. Some reports had said train e-tickets won't be issued without Aadhaar linking.  IRCTC has said that "no Aadhaar verification is required for booking up to 6 tickets in a month". IRCTC also said that verification through Aadhaar is an additional facility in case user wants to book more than 6 tickets in a month. "Users can avail the facility of booking upto 12 tickets in a month by linking Aadhaar," IRCTC said.

mAadhaar


Railways had earlier allowed mobile Aadhaar, or Aadhaar card in digital form using mobile app mAadhaar, as one of the ID proof for train travel. mAadhaar can now also be used as an identity proof to enter airports. For showing Aadhaar through the mAadhaar app, the person has to enter his or her password on the app. This can be done only on the mobile number registered with Aadhaar.
