Sachin Mandloi CEO of TripBorn.com Share's his views on company's Railway Ticketing Platform
Most of travel agents know TripBorn.com as a popular destination to look for travel tickets for their customers and also for TripBorn's unparallel super fast IT platform and lowest ticket prices.
Indian Railways is one of the world's largest railway networks comprising 115,000 km (approximately 71,000 miles) and is an Indian state-owned enterprise, owned and operated by Ministry of Railways (Government of India). It has a total track over a route of 67,312 km (approximately 41,826 miles) and more than 8,112 stations connecting all the parts of India through its tracks. It runs 12,617 trains to carry millions of passengers to their destinations daily.
However, obtaining a reserved train ticket to board these trains is not easy as most of these trains usually become full with no room very soon as soon as the ticketing opens for these trains. There are very few options available to book Indian railways train tickets on Internet, one of them is IRCTC website, getting a reserved ticket has always been difficult.
"Indian Railway trains carry over 25 million passengers daily, equivalent to moving the entire population of Australia. Train journey has always been the most preferred method of travel for millions of people since decades and this trend still very much exists, mainly because of how convenient and cheap the trains are. With our well designed, brilliantly architected IT Platform we have significantly reduced the time it takes a user to look and book a reserved train ticket. With our extensive and exclusive travel agent network which is spread across PAN India we intend to serve millions of people who wish to travel by train. In my opinion this not only helps travel agents but also serves as a medium for travel agent to strengthen their relationship with their customers" says Mr. Sachin Mandloi, CEO and owner of TripBorn.com.

"Railway e-tickets or railway tickets bought from Internet has come a long way since its inception in 2002 in India. I remember on the first day in 2002 only 29 tickets were booked online, having said that if you look at the numbers on 1st April 2015 there were more than 1.3 million e-tickets booked. In total the number was 9.7 crores during fiscal year 2010-11 which rose to 18.3 crores in 2014-15, an increase of close to 90% in last 5 years. If you look at the stats provided by Government of India it is evident that percentage of internet ticketing passengers overtook the percentage of counter ticketing passengers for the first time in 2014-15. This trend is not going to stop, with increased use of internet by people across the country among all ages, races and communities, the numbers of tickets booked only is only going to go high high and high whether it's train tickets, bus tickets, flight tickets, everything is going to be completely replaced by e-tickets. We have heavily invested in our technology and research to make user experience on our travel platform as seamless, friendly and fast as possible. Today I can proudly say that a rail ticket can be booked in less than 35 seconds only at tripborn.com"
