Buoyed with the success of internet ticketing and tourism verticals, IRCTC has recently tied up with the General Sales Agents (GSAs) of Bangladesh.
The GSA scheme for registration of travel agents from outside India will facilitate booking of e-tickets of Indian Railways through IRCTC's website to the customers of the concerned countries.
Apart from the internet ticket, the GSA agents will also have the facility to book the attractive tour packages of IRCTC.
initiative envisages facilitating inbound foreign tourists and maintaining good relationships with foreign countries particularly the bordering and South Asian countries.
The General Sales Agents scheme was initially launched by IRCTC way back in 2006 with the approval of Ministry of Railways. IRCTC has registered GSAs in the neighbouring countries to promote regional tourism of India.
Currently, IRCTC has 11 working GSAs in Nepal, London, Kuwait and UAE. Registration of 3 GSAs of Srilanka is also in pipeline.
"The GSA scheme will greatly enrich inbound tourists' experiences visiting India and will help to get acquainted with the cultural heritage of India. This will also facilitate the strong bonding with the neighbouring countries" said Dr. Arun Kumar Manocha, CMD, IRCTC.
