The IRCTC is an amazing organization. To share a few statistics of IRCTC…

  • 20% of the monthly Internet traffic in India hits the IRCTC site (Comscore)
  • 30 million users per month log into the IRCTC web site
  • 500,000 tickets are booked daily on their site
  • 1 million ticket enquires are made each day on their site

What’s interesting is that IRCTC doesn’t have an iOS/Android app which makes it a first on Windows Phone. Considering the heavy traffic that IRCTC handles I guess the phone and Windows 8 app is up for a huge challenge.

We need more such apps on Windows Phone and Windows 8. These platforms are lacking classic apps which should be filled in pretty quickly to tackle the huge competition that we’re up against.

Appreciate your comments...
