IRCTC’s plan to monetise rail passenger data under review

The IRCTC has set the August 29 deadline for submission of bids for the consultancy service. Officials said there is no question of the agency monetising the data pertaining to individual customers. “We have only floated a tender for engaging a consultant, who will study and suggest the road map for data monetisation keeping in mind the existing laws so that individual privacy is not breached,” said one of them.
