There are now many websites that offer online rail booking. Earlier, there was just one website – IRCTC- which was the sole website for booking Indian Railways tickets. But with the growth of technology and increasing number people using the IRCTC website, IRCTC deemed it fit to allow other private players to offer rail booking. Makemytrip.com is one of the few good websites with user friendly interface that offer the convenience of easy online rail booking. MakeMyTrip.com recently received approval from Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Limited (IRCTC) to sell railway inventory online, as well as do room bookings for railway budget hotels.
