What is IRCTC? IRCTC simply stands for the Indian railway catering and tourism corporation. This platform or corporation has made it very easy for users and travelers across the nation to book their railway tickets via their mobile or desktop devices on their website or mobile apps.
Traveling can be fun but at the same time can be hectic and tiring. I do travel a lot and I find it very intriguing, therefore when people say that they find traveling hard and not fun, I find it difficult to believe. Well looking at it from a different perspective, one can agree that traveling cannot be that much fun, considering.
When traveling and the basic needs like comfortability and other factors are not in place, then traveling will not be so much fun as it promised to be. Imagine standing all through your trip, or stopping and highlighting your train in other to get something to eat? Now you see where I am getting at?
