IRCTC Website could do some improvements

IRCTC ( is one of the busiest websites in India. It is ticket booking portal of one of the most popular and worlds largest Railways, The Indian Railways.

Besides all the popularity and red ribbons it has some glitches. I am sharing a few that I found.

To increase loading speed & delivery performance:
  1. IRCTC should consider having a light weight alternative page during peak hours like between 8:00 AM to 8:30 AM
  2. IRCTC should consider having CDN or Cloud to provide more optimized delivery

To increase user experience:
  1. In the login screen, after loading the page and before setting focus to the username field, the username field has to be checked for any content has been typed. If some content typed no focus should be set or focus should be set to password field. This will avoid accidently revealing passwords.
