Full form of IRCTC is Indian Railway Catering And Tourism Corporation. 



IRCTC is a subsidiary company run by Indian Railway and comes under Ministry Of Railways. It is also a Miniratna company runs under Government Of India.
The main purpose of IRCTC is to provide the facility to railway consumer on catering, tourism, and booking of an online ticket through IRCTC official website.
IRCTC was founded on 27 September 1999 to help people who struggle the whole day to get their reserved ticket. IRCTC simplifies this and changes the face of Indian Railways. The consumer can book their ticket online at www.irctc.co.in. It is the 2nd largest booking website with 15 to 16 lac ticket daily.
You can also book flight and tourism services in India. It also provides the facility for a consumer to book their meal on their reserved seats. 

Tatkal Ticket Booking

Apart from normal ticket booking, IRCTC also provides the Tatkal Scheme. This service allows booking ticket for the immediate plan by paying nominal tatkal charges. You can book a maximum of 4 passengers on one PNR (Personal Name Record). The biggest drawback of IRCTC is to stop bulk ticket booking during tatkal timing. Sometimes, server crashes due to heavy traffic on the server. IRCTC is continuously upgrading but they are unable to stop these black hat techniques.

Tatkal Timing:

For AC- 10:00 Hours onward
For Non-AC – 11:00 Hours onward
