In all these check ups a minimum of 35 seconds time will be required to book a ticket successfully as per IRCTC Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) A.K. Manocha. According to him, this will ensure prevention of faster booking of tickets through illegal software. Earlier the actual minimum time for booking a ticket was 10 seconds and it was vulnerable to various cyber attacks which causes inconvenience to general public.
Users will be required to enter correct CAPTCHA (a series of alphanumeric characters to distinguish between human and computers) three times now, one more than before.
