Following the e-retail cash on delivery system to capture all sects of customers, IRCTC has now introduced Pay-on-Delivery option for buying railway e-tickets. Pay on Delivery’ payment option would allow the user to pay at the time of delivery through any payment mode including cash. IRCTC through its website and mobile app has now introduced Pay-on-Delivery as one of the payment options for its customers.
Delivering tickets at the consumer’s doorstep by offering the pay-on-delivery option will facilitate those consumers who book through travel agents to move to online medium. It will also encourage people who book at railway reservation counters to move to online medium as there are cost and effort associated to reach out the reservation counters.

The customer will have to do a one time registration for availing PoD as a payment option. Customer will have to tender either Adhaar or Pancard to avail this payment option. Payment on Delivery Charges shall be Rs.90 for transaction up to Rs.5,000 and Rs.120 for transactions valuing more than Rs.5,000.
