NextBigWhat is reporting that IRCTC seem to have improved its site’s performance making it usable during peak ticketing hours. They seem to have added servers and/or optimized the site’s software performance in order to give a smoother ticketing experience to users during peak hours.
The site seems to have gone lightweight in UI design thereby reducing the load times of the web pages. Given that the site is a transactional site which needs to be secure & efficient enough to handle millions of hits during peak hours, any optimization & hardware upgrade needs to be thoroughly tested before deployment. IRCTC made an announcement about this improvement last year.
This change should help a lot of users to book tickets (relatively) faster during peak hours.
