IRCTC to make Aadhaar compulsory for booking tickets?

aadhaar-cardNew Delhi: The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation is likely to make Aadhaar cards mandatory for booking train tickets from December, 2016. Passengers who dont have Aadhaar Card wont be able to book train tickets, Trak.in reported.

This major collaboration between Aadhaar and train tickets would be made compulsory for both reserved and unreserved categories; besides holding true for online as well as counter tickets.

This is the biggest push for Aadhaar-based ecosystem to be ever implemented in India.

Already more than 96 per cent Indians have an Aadhaar Card and the remaining few would be now forced to apply for one.
