Have you forgotten IRCTC User ID for Online Booking?

Sometimes it happens that a user forgets the username or user ID used in IRCTC for login. We will show here how to get your IRCTC ID. Many people don't know how to recover their ID if they don't remember it. But solution exists.

Just read till end carefully.


Note that we are not talking here about forgotten password, but we are talking about ID. Resetting forgotten password is easy as already explained in how to reset forgot irctc password.

But can we do the same when we forget the ID?

what is my IRCTC ID
solution to I Don't remember my IRCTC ID for login. What is my IRCTC ID?


The problem looks simple at first look, but believe us that solution is not as easy as it might seem. Many people try to send email to care@irctc.co.in but they get message that your issue is forwarded and nothing happens. Many time the date at which we intend to take journey pass by and we are left hapless as we cannot book train tickets online without IRCTC user ID.

One solution that comes to mind is to create a new email and than register on IRCTC with that email. But problem again arises because as we enter our mobile number while creating new account, IRCTC responds by saying that "mobile already registered".  Hence we cannot continue with registration process.

So what to do? Do we need new mobile number? But that will not be a viable solution. It sounds illogical and silly to apply for a new mobile number just to create account on IRCTC.

But there is a simple trick.

Enter a mobile number of your relative (mummy, papa, brother, sister, it doesn't matter) and make sure that it is not registered with www.irctc.co.in. Than complete the registration process using new email. After that login to your new account and change the mobile number to your own old number.

That's it! Now you have a new user ID and your old mobile number using which you can easily do railway ticket booking.

Hope you like the solution. Share it and enjoy your journey.
