IRCTC Service Charges for Ticket Booking - AC1 AC2 AC3 Sleeper

As said by Railway Minister "In coming april 2015 Indian Railway would levying service tax on service charge for for E ticket booking facility provided on IRCTC portal. Passenger will have to pay this nservice tax if they use E ticket service.

The ministry's letter says the "matter has been examined and the said proposal of IRCTC to transfer the liability incurred on account of imposition of service tax on the service charges levied by IRCTC to the customers has been agreed to".

The letter had been released by the railways minister in Feb 2015 but IRCTC sources levies a service charge of

Rs. 1 per e-ticket in case of sleeper class and second sleeper class.

Rs. 2 for In case of all other classes like 1AC, 2AC, 3AC, CC, FC

As said by pradeep kundu, Indian railway is going to increase very little amount as service tax because IRCTC was bearing this amount since IRCTC Portal had been started.

Although Railway has taken IRCTC Service charges from passenger properly but now on wards Service tax also will be paid by the passenger only.

"It's going to be a very nominal hike - Rs. 1 for SL and Rs. 2 for AC classes," said Pradeep Kundu, PRO, IRCTC. "Till now, the IRCTC was bearing the cost of service tax but now it was decided to charge the same from passengers," he added.

IRCTC sales around 13 Lakh tickets every day through the portal. Sale amount as recorded by Railway is approx 6 lakh today, If IRCTC adds only Rs. 1 and Rs. 2 as service tax then IRCTC additional revenue will be approximately 13Lakh to 20 Lakh per day depends on the number of AC/Sleeper tickets booked that day.
