Corporation Bank, India’s premier Public Sector Bank has good news for its customers. The Bank has e-enabled railway reservation booking bringing in a new world of convenience.
The Bank has entered into a tie up with the Indian Railway Catering & Tourism Corporation
(IRCTC) for online booking of railway tickets. CorpNet (Internet Banking facility) customers of the Bank holding a Corp Convenience Card (International ATM cum Debit Card), can now book their tickets online, over the Internet, by direct debit to their Corp Bank account. The customer needs to Register
himself with the IRCTC to transact. The customers shall login to IRCTC website, get confirmation about availability of tickets for the desired sector and select Corporation Bank to make the payment of ticket fare to IRCTC. IRCTC will send the reservation ticket through courier to the customers within three days from the date of booking.
Every registered user at the IRCTC gets an e-mail confirmation of successful registration. Every successful transaction is also followed by a confirmation e-mail. In addition, for every waitlisted/RAC ticket, the customer gets periodic e-mail alerts about his/her PNR status. The number of alerts depends on the time interval between the date of booking & the date of journey. There is thus, a regular system of communication with the customers through e-mail and snail mail & direct mail along with the tickets through courier. Service Charges
: A Service Charge of Rs 12/- (inclusive of service tax) will be charged for every successful transaction.
This is yet another facility that will go a long way in increasing customer convenience, in the same mould as other tech savvy offerings from Corp Bank, like Corp Any Time Premium
(facility to pay LIC premium through the Bank’s ATMs), Corp Bill Pay
(online payment of utility bills) etc.
