Tatkal ticketing system for big budget movies is being planned and an announcement in this regard will be made soon, said Information and Publicity Minister Kadambur C Raju on Tuesday.
Three days after arresting a Tirupur native who reportedly swindled Rs 20 lakh through 'unauthorised' android applications, the IRCTC has strengthened its server to prevent any such threats in future.
The scammer had reportedly developed two Android apps to amass money by fraudulent means. The fake apps enabled customers to obtain confirmed Tatkal e-tickets owing to their speed.
The RPF special team, constituted to conduct raids, unearthed Tatkal tickets worth Rs 9.99 lakh.
Ajay Garg was posted as an assistant programmer in the CBI headquarters before his arrest in December last year for allegedly coding and selling the illegal railway ticket booking software.
The CBI has written to the US and Russia, through the Interpol, seeking information about servers on which its arrested software programmer had hosted his illegal software.
The agency has so far identified 10 travel agents who were part of the network but their questioning is exposing more agents who subscribed to their illegal services.
Ajay Garg, 35, was held from Delhi on Tuesday night when the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) got information about its employee indulging in the racket.
