The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) applies to entities that accept credit card payments. If a company or service provider intends to accept card payment, and store, process and transmit cardholder data, then it needs to host data securely with a PCI compliant hosting provider.

Following complete integration with IRCTC, people who want to book railway ticket can use iPay to make payments using several options. IRCTC iPay provides all payment options like

Credit Card, Debit Card, International Card, Auto Debit, UPI, Wallets etc, said an IRCTC tweet.

PCI DSS certification would also ensure that the data is safe and communication between different servers take place in a secured manner.

The back-end support will be provided by Delhi and Bengaluru based MMAD communications, which is the IRCTC's technology partner, said reports.

IRCTC's payment gateway may give sriff competition to payment firms such as Razorpay, Mobikwik and Paytm, who currently power IRCTC's railway ticket booking transactions through their gateways.

According to IRCTC's 2016-2017 annual report, the ticketing platform on an average sold 573,000 e-tickets daily.
