  2. Hi there,
    I tried to pay for the services at IRCTC.
    The powered by ATOM did not accept my AMEX 15 digit card number (Always used this card to pay at IRCTC for my transactions and my AMEX card has only 15 digits).

    Can some one urgently look into this and correct the site, so that I can pay for IRCTC transactions?

    Thanks and regards,
    Guna Vanthavasi, Sydney, Australia.
