Indian Railways Clocks Rs 3.7Billion in e-transaction, partners with ClearTrip for Hotel Booking

Indian railways has launched online hotel booking service powered by Cleartrip (they are the exclusive provider of hotel content, availability and pricing to the Indian Railways)

This is quite a big win for ClearTrip as Indian Railways is one of the most successful e-commerce site in India and the partnership itself will give Cleartrip a huge user base.

In the month of November 2008, IndianRailways website successfully booked Rs 3.7Billion ($74.2mn) worth of e-transaction and even if a small % of that does hotel booking, you know the number Cleartrip is targeting!
