Ads on IRCTC Booking site

Recently I was trying to book a ticket on irctc and the site kept hanging. After sometime error message would pop up as per the attached image. This continued for quite a while, even though i tried in different browsers and also from my phone.

Looks like the site is tightly coupled with the ads site, displaying ads at each site. I am not sure why irctc needs so much dependency on ads for ticket booking.

Even the authentication and final booking is now linked to Ad, where we have to enter "ETMONEY" or "WagonR" from the images in the captcha field. I feel this is unnecessary, forcing users to specific products, whether we like it or not.

As such we already are bombarded with commercials everywhere - TV, Radio, News papers, Social media and even emails. So far irctc has been an exception.

I request the site owners to look into this and remove the ads from the reservation site. All we want to is book a ticket for train travel. We really do not care about any other information when that itself is sometimes difficult.

Agreed it is right of Railways to earn through advertisements on it's website but it should not cause inconvenience and confusion. Railways should take care to place advertisements without hindering the ticket booking procedure. Even on booking windows (on irctc site) ads appear and hide the space for data entry. Every time some new ads appear and at most unexpected place. This should be taken care of. more
