Solution for misuse in ticket booking - Inputs Needed
Multiple restrictions (no. of tickets per user id, per ip address etc) have been put to address this misuse but the problem still continues. Also, some software are being used to manipulate ip addresses by the agents to book multiple tickets.
We would like to seek your inputs on how this can be addressed. Preventing misuse will mean more tickets becoming available for the end consumer directly.
We look forward to your inputs! more
One solution could be - limitation through Unique ID Proof.
Like TTD seva website,
* Passenger registers with IRCTC one UserID with Unique ID Proof & Name combination
* System should ensure no duplicate registration with same ID proof.
* Put system restrictions on # of bookings per UserID within time period.
* Same ID Proof should be verified during journey.
With this model, you can contain to some extent.
Finally, if your TTEs are inefficient even GOD can't help. They hardly ask for ID proof so what's the use of all these measures?? more
