One of India’s most heavily visited sites, http://www.irctc.co.in/ has gone in for a makeover.

The new site seems much more simpler, user friendly, and easier to navigate, though I haven’t tried out all options yet. It is presently labeled ‘Beta’, and keeping in tune with our Independence Day, will go live on 15-Aug-10. :)

Here is how it looks:

You can either click ‘Beta’ on the current site or directly access the new site by visiting https://www.irctc.co.in/cgi-bin/beta.dll/irctc/services/home.do

Will it make tatkal bookings any quicker? Maybe not, but you atleast have a better interface to look at now. Happy Bookings! :D
