This is literally a new equation formed by the online passenger ticketing system IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation) and Spice Digital. Both of the service providers have now joined hands to provide better e-ticketing system to the Indian travelers.
Spice Safar, which is the product of this partnership, is an online portal for travel agents to provide better service to the customers. Yes! Spice Safar is only meant for travels agents and has official partnership with IRCTC.
The agents can log into Spice Safar and book tickets as they used to do in the IRCTC portal. As the officials of Spice Digital, the system is quite real time and will show the available trains, fares, booking charges similar to IRCTC.
For every ticket booking, the agents will also get their commission, which will be mentioned in the ticket itself. Sumi Dhody, National Product Head – M-commerce of Spice Digital while talking to Medianama said that the system is targeted to not-so internet savvy travelers. He also added that there will be no mobile version of the site as mobile bookings are cumbersome, but they’re planning to add hotels and taxis into the portal very soon.
Now if want to be registered as an agent, then you can visit the Spice Safar and sign up. Before that I’d also request you to go through the points mentioned about the Agent enrollment process and perquisites, in the site. You can also read the IRCTC policy, term and conditions there. For beginners, the site also features a demo link. Click the demo link and know about the ticket booking procedure.
