Amazon on Wednesday partnered with Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) to provide their customers with the facility to book reserved train tickets on Amazon. It will be convenient for Android and iOS users to book their tickets using the Amazon App as the IRCTC app is sometimes subject to heavy traffic that causes the site to go down.

Prime users will be at the benefit of getting a 12 per cent discount on the train tickets with a maximum cashback of Rs 120. The cashback offer is only valid for a limited period. For the introductory period, Amazon has also waived off service and payment gateway transaction charges. Amazon already gave the option to book flights and bus tickets.
