How to get discount on Irctc train Booking

As i told earlier Irctc does not provide and discount offer for ticket booking as they already have that much sales. They even charge extra for tickets by Tatkal method. But you can indirectly get discount on Irctc through your Paytm Wallet.

Paytm is a mobile recharge website in India and now they have their own digital wallet approved by RBI. Paytm keeps on offering different offers and cashbacks on mobile recharge and shopping on paytm and other website. Like recently i purchased a laptop from Paytm and got Rs4000 cashback. Now i can use this cashback to book ticket on Irctc. With this cashback i can even book my train ticket for free.

Like this Paytm gives many other offers also. There is always some offer on Paytm for wallet and mobile recharge. You can check for latest Paytm Offers here.

Like few days earlier paytm was offering 5% cashback on adding money to your Paytm Wallet. Now if you add Rs 1000 to your Paytm , you will get Rs 50 extra. So you can use such offers to add money to your Paytm Wallet. And then use your Paytm Cash to book ticket. So indirectly you are getting discount on train booking while other are paying extra.

Be smart and use this trick and share it with others. As one penny save is one penny earned. I have written an article for Paytm Wallet offers. You will get great deals there.
