IRCTC Next Generation Login is Amazingly fast for Tatkal bookings

IRCTC has launched IRCTC next-generation login and new next-generation e-ticketing system. IRCTC from the past few months was trying hard to improve its website and finally has done it. We might have noticed the difference in the journey planner, some time we had a new one and sometimes old one. The new journey planner was part of the new IRCTC next-generation website.

In the older version of the website accessing IRCTC login page was difficult during Tatkal ticketing hours especially during 10 AM in the morning. During this time the traffic load on the website is huge which slows down the website.
