Login to ICICI Bank For Railway Ticket Booking and Status Check

Most people login to www.irctc.co.in page for railway ticket booking. But now you don't have to be dependent on IRCTC for booking your railway tickets as you can now do booking and cancellation of railway tickets on ICICI bank's website.

ICICI bank - book IRCTC tickets

This is a great service as we all know that sometimes booking train tickets online can be problematic. This is because during the peak festival season, the number of people looking to book railway tickets increases manifold resulting in non availability of railway booking site aka irctc.co.in. By the time one is able to do irctc login successfully, the seat availability in a train becomes nil. As a result many people are deprived of booking tickets successfully.

Apart from ticket booking, ICICI bank will also offer a service to check railway ticket status. One can check PNR status on railway enquiry site - indianrail.gov.in, but this is a nice alternate offered by ICICI, the largest private sector bank in India. Both IRCTC and ICICI bank have teamed up to make it possible.

ICICI bank will also offer the same services on its mobile and digital banking app.

For booking railway tickets on ICICI, users will have to follow these simple steps:

  1. Go and login to bank's site http://www.icicibank.com/irctc to access the online railway reservation page.
  2. Enter details like source and destination station, date of journey, class of travel.
  3. After providing details you will need to enter your IRCTC user ID and registered email ID. If you don't yet have an account on IRCTC you can create a new account by following steps on irctc registration. You'll get OTP (One Time Password) on your mobile if you provide correct details.
  4. You should now be on seat booking page. Select train, berth choice, and journey date here. Enter the passenger details thereafter.
  5. Last step is making payment. If you are a customer of ICICI bank you can use your account. If you are customer of some other banks you can select your bank and use internet banking, credit/ debit card service for making online payment.
  6. Check your phone to see that railway booking confirmation is received along with details like PNR number, coach, seat number.
After booking tickets if you decide to cancel them you can also do the same on the same website. It's all too easy.

Why even hackers don't hack IRCTC ?

The irctc.co.in site - the official railway ticket booking site of India belonging to Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has never been hacked, and there is very less chance of anyone attempting to do so. This might sound strange to you.

In a country like India where due to abundance of talented IT and programming talent, the claim that no one will even attempt to hack IRCTC doesn't seem right.

Especially when there are great benefits of doing so.



Of course new programmers do get excited and try and hack a website. After all what it requires is some good and intelligent programming. Although there are no known hacks, some well known hackers might be considering making an autobot that will just require to fill in captcha at the time of ticket booking. Basically on one single click the bot will automatically try to book Tatkal ticket at 10 am and will prompt you only for captcha. Captcha can also be bypassed though. No one has yet created such a hack. However …
