CHENNAI: mRUPEE, a subsidiary of Tata Teleservices, on Monday announced that it has tied up with IRCTC to provide an additional payment gateway.

The association will allow users one-tap payments for rail ticket bookings via mRUPEE wallet for a significant number of travellers. Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) handles the catering, tourism and online ticketing operations of the railways. As the biggest e-commerce portal in India, IRCTC holds a record of over 13 lakh tickets booked in a day in April 2015. The portal sees approximately 4.5 to 5 lakhs bookings per day on an average.

"Our partnership with IRCTC adds to the tremendous reach of mRUPEE’s market. We’re excited that these kinds of meaningful partnerships are helping to not only give our customers the ease of quick and convenient booking, but also give a thrust to the government’s mandate of enhancing wider adoption of digital money in India,” said Pradeep K Sampath, Chief Operating Officer, mRUPEE.
