IRCTC selling data of Indians is not acceptable
Will be monetised by the govt. & that too, in the absence of a data protection legislation! IRCTC has uploaded a tender to appoint a consultant for digital data monetisation and it is attached.

Per the tender, customer data to be studied includes, inter alia, 'Name, Age, Mobile No., Gender, address, E-Mail ID, No. of Passenger, Class of Journey, Payment Mode, Login/Password,' in addition to behavioural data such as payment & booking mode, frequency of journey, etc
