Railway's online travel portal- www.irctc.co.in is now loaded with beta version of its new user interface having more user friendly features for better user experience.

The biggest feature of the new portal is ‘waitlist prediction’ which helps people get the probability of a Waitlisted or RAC ticket getting confirmed.

E-ticketing today constitutes about two third of total reserved tickets on Indian Railways.

Now, people can enquire or search trains and check availability of seats without login in a bid to save their time. Users can now change font size throughout the website for comfortable viewing experience.

The new look and feel will have enhanced class-wise, train-wise, destination-wise, departure/arrival time wise and quota-wise filters for facilitating customer while planning their journeys.
