My dad had faced this problem, and the experience was plain horrible. He ended up creating a new account using a different email id and phone number. There was no way to recover the old id

I had cancelled 2 tickets on April 4 , but I have not received the refund amounts till today , so it's been over 3 weeks . Payments were made using UPI .

I can see the status as "refunded" from the irctc website. Anyone faced similar problems with delayed refunds ? I've sent a mail to irctc and waiting for their response, but most likely they'll say that they've refunded the amount and ask me to get in touch with my bank.

I have booked 2 tickets for tomorrow evening Pune to Mumbai
1) TQWL 6 - Intercity Express
2) Confirmed - NCJ Mumbai Express

I prefer the intercity but is there is any chance at all of that getting confirmed? If it's highly unlikely, I will cancel it right away. If it gets confirmed, I will cancel the confirmed ticket.

For something like the NCJ Mumbai Train, though it reaches Pune only in the evening, the train itself starts from NagerCoil much much before - may be the previous day - so what is the latest I can cancel that (I have also booked that in Tatkaal)?

There is high chance tatkal quota waitlist to get confirmed. A friend booked similar one last week and it got confirmed.

This train has already started at 5 AM today. Confirmed tatkal tickets do not get any refund on cancellation. So the best bet would be to travel on confirmed ticket and cancel the waitlisted one.

Thank you - cancelled the Intercity one. When I booked through Tatkal today it showed a few tickets available, but by the time, I got through all the steps, I got a TQWL 6 ticket. I wouldn't have booked it at all, I had known it would be WL.

Is there no way from the irctc site or the app to view older transactions? I'm looking for May 2019 transactions and it's showing only from June!

IRCTC website has been updated to provide more features now: We can see the reservation charts for all trains public on the IRCTC website.

Name:  irctc.JPG
Views: 429
Size:  44.6 KB


The link "Charts/Vacancy" allows a user to see available berth/seats in a chart format once the reservations are finalized (on date of journey). I am yet to explore these new features, but was able to even see the reservation charts with info like start / end station for a particular seat.

The chart/vacancy feature has been around for the last few months.. But little practical use I can see other than saving yourself the trouble of "where are you going to your neighbour... assuming that the person has not swapped seats! I would seriously doubt whether this facility will muster in Europe or US. For example why should the whole coach know from where to where I am travelling? Interestingly the same information including my name, age and gender has always been available in the reservation chart posted outside the coach anyway.

If you have some idle time, interesting time pass though!

The very reason for making the reservation chart available for public was to stop the TTE mismanaging the vacant seats.
This chart is very handy when you are travelling on RAC ticket. I once had travel on RAC a few months back from Bangalore to Kanyakumari and with this chart I was able to find out the seat next to me which were to be vacant from Salem onwards. And the TTE confirmed the same and allotted me that berth after Salem.
Additionally, the TTE is also supposed to upload all seats were the travelers did not show up within an hour after leaving the station.

So Indian Railways is basically saying "Sorry we cannot guarantee that our staff (TTEs) will not mismanage the situation.... here is the information in public domain so that you passengers can to try to stop that".

But again this feature is nothing new. The charts used to be pasted outside the door anyway with your name and age included as well.


I remember being interogated by a fellow passenger nearly 20 years back about my identity and destination the moment I boarded the train. No internet... he had just simply read it off the chart pasted outside!

The captcha thing on IRCTC really bugs me. They're basically advts for the revenue of the site and are a thorn in the side. Sometimes they're so illegible that a new captcha comes up and if an error or missed filling of the form occurs it takes a while to detect for it's at almost one corner of the page on a desktop. By the time I'm done my mood is GRRRR.
