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. All this can now be taken care of by completely eliminating online payment.

The IRCTC cash on delivery payment options allows users to buy ticket online, but pay for them later on when the ticket is delivered to their house door. This also is beneficial for many users who don't yet have an online banking facility or credit card facility. People who are hesitant in making online payments also would get confidence with this move since now they can be sure that their money is safe.

The ticket booking process with Cod is bit different, You will need to take the following steps -
  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.
There are other things too that you should keep in mind. The cash on delivery irctc payment option is available only for tickets that are booked at least 5 days in advance and usage of it will also incur extra cost. As of now any user opting to pay on delivery will have to pay Rs. 60 extra for AC class train tickets, and Rs. 40 more for sleeper coach tickets.
