Indian Railways is coming up with news ideas from time to time to make travel more safer and easier. There are many steps taken to provide better facilities to the commuters.
IR has came up with a new Passenger Insurance Scheme launched by IRCTC on 01/09/2016 while booking your e-tickets for rail travel.
In case you have not opted for passenger Insurance Scheme while booking your e-ticket, you can use it next time when you book your next e-ticket.
To opt for passenger Insurance Scheme, while filling your passenger journey details, you are asked to opt for Passenger Insurance. If your response is yes, then passenger Insurance is provided to all passengers being booked on the ticket @ Rs.0.92 per passenger. You will receive an SMS and mail for Passenger Insurance directly from the Insurance providing companies.
This Scheme is available only if the seats are available and only on e-tickets booked via IRCTC online.
The above scheme may not be available for wait-listed bookings.
