Acceptance of International Debit and Credit Cards for payment for e-ticketing through IRCTC website


Ø      At present, only American Express International Credit Cards are accepted at IRCTC portal through American Express (AMEX) Payment Gateway.  Other International Cards are not accepted for payments as on date.

Ø      IRCTC will now permit other International Credit/Debit Cards issued outside India also for booking of e-tickets through IRCTC website.  These International Credit/Debit Cards will be used for payment through the payment gateway provided by M/s.Atom Technologies.


Ø      4% of transaction value (inclusive taxes as applicable) shall be levied for each transaction through the International Credit/Debit Cards. 
Ø      This payment option is available only when ticket is booked at least 2 days in advance of journey date.
Ø      This payment option is not available for booking of “Tatkal” or “Premium Tatkal” quota tickets.
Ø      This payment option is not available for booking of tickets in “Premium trains”.


Ø      Select the “International Cards powered by Atom” payment option present under ‘Payment Gateway/Credit Card’ category at payment page.
Ø      Input all the mandatory details for payment at the Gateway page, such as Card Number, Name, Expiry, CVV, Bank Name, mobile number, e-mail and address.
Ø      After submission of all the details, ticket will be booked in case of successful payment response received from the Bank/Payment Gateway.


Ø      Acceptance of all International Credit/Debit Cards will fulfil the longstanding demand of foreign tourists as they will be able to book e-tickets directly and will no longer depend on other Agencies for this purpose.
