Features of IRCTC Lite version

I’m sure you must have been pestered by the extremely slow and in-efficient servers of IRCTC website. In fact, you can find a myriad of references to it’s poor performance in many Bollywood movies and jokes. However, in a constant effort to improve it’s usability, Indian Railways have recently introduced a new version of the site called IRCTC lite. 

As it’s name suggests, it is just a ‘lite’ version of the website. Fortunately, it is basically a stripped version of the actual website without any advertisements, heavy images, UI elements, banners, e.t.c. It has been launched one month earlier and reportedly increased the overall performance of IRCTC servers.


How does IRCTC Lite version work?

If you are wondering how to switch to the lite version, don’t worry. Your default version will be switched to the lite version during the tatkal registration period automatically. That is, from 9:30 to 12:00, you will be served the lite version and normal standard website during any other part of the day.

  • No obstructive advertisements, a major culprit for slowing down the website.
  • Unnecessary links and addons services are limited from the lite version.
  • Almost every image is eliminated from this version.
  • Fancy CSS styles, UI elements and buttons are removed for a faster browsing experience.
Previously, the number of total tatkal bookings per day was only in the range of 83,000, while now, it is increased to a figure of 92,000. It is definitely a boon for passengers looking for last-minute reservations.


In my personal experience, i found it to be effective and significantly faster compared to the standard version. However, the sluggish server response problem wasn’t completed solved with this version.

    Nice article. Quite useful information but I’m worried about it. Will it be efficient in case of Tatkal booking? I do not think it would work. IRCTC should upgrade their servers to tackle such huge traffic.
