As you all know that irctc online ticket booking required 3 precise steps. But the third step which also involves payment of railway tickets, although easy, is also the cause of problems like not being able to book tickets due to session getting expired, which happens due to time getting elapsed in banking transaction getting complete, and money debited ticket not booked on irctc.

  1. Go to '' instead of ''.
  2. Book your tickets as you would do in case of IRCTC eticketing passenger reservation system.
  3. At the end choose 'cash on delivery' for payment options.
