Detailed explanation of making irctc account using phone is explained here (with actual screenshots and examples), but just to give you idea as to how easy it is, we have mentioned it in short below.

Here is how to do it:
  • Download the IRCTC rail connect app from here. This  is latest version and replaces older railsaarthi and other railway apps and adds on new features like swipe, shuffle among trains to select them for booking your tickets online.
  • After installing the app on your device you will be asked to provide a username. This username could be anything, it's your choice.
  • After providing a username and other details to IRCTC, like email address, gender, age etc a confirmation message will be sent to your email address.
  • OTP (One Time Password) will also be sent to verify your phone number.
  • After verifying both your phone and email, a new email will be sent by IRCTC mentioning your user id and password. You must change this automatically generated password to be safe.
  • If you have habit of forgetting password,  you can also assign a short pin, just like we do for ATM transactions, in order to login to irctc.
That's it! Within short time not only you are able to create a new user id on IRCTC, but also has activated it.

Important Notes

  • Please note that you are allowed to make one and only one user id on IRCTC. Attempting to make more than one account is restricted and can lead to suspension of your account. Having said that here is a solution to it. Follow this process to reactivate your irctc account.
  • You can use same user id to login on IRCTC next generation online ticketing system from both app and website
  • What if you happen to forget your newly created id on IRCTC? This is quite a common problem. Because we don't book railway tickets often, except for holidays, we tend to forget the IRCTC ID. And since new one is not allowed, we are left scratching our head. Don't worry! We have a solution. This is how you retrieve IRCTC userid.
  • Again if you forget your password, you can reset your password too. 

After Making New IRCTC ID

Now that you have your login details, ID and password, it's time to make use of it.  Here is what you can use your new id for:

  1. Online booking of train tickets
  2. Booking of flight tickets
  3. Ordering meal or food from IRCTC while traveling on your seat/berth in train
  4. For availing porter services to pick up your luggage (only available to  users of new tejas express train)
  5. Cancel tickets to get refunds
  6. See booked ticket history
  7. Change your boarding point
  8. Link your aadhar card with irctc to book more than 12 tickets using same user id.
