Amazon India to make Customers Life More Easy and Convenient with the Move.

While speaking on the recent development, the Director of Amazon Pay, Vikas Bansal, stated that the team is excited to partner with IRCTC and take a step forward towards making lives more comfortable and convenient for its customers. Previously, Amazon launched flight and bus ticket bookings on its platform. With the latest move, the team is enabling travel across any more as per our customers’ preferences.
