  2. Great share!! Thanks for the steps!!

  3. Thank you for very helpful information. I live in Sweden and wish to visit India this year and would enjoy to make use of the railwaysystem, but I have heard that one can only make the registration at IRCTC using a mobile number from India (+91) only.
    I wonder if that is true or just a false rumour?

    Hope for an answer soon.

    Best regards

  4. Hello Mr.Ivan Duffy,

    You are welcome to visit our beautiful country. Its true that to register yourself and to create a new account on IRCTC, you need to have an Indian Mobile Number i.e.with country code +91 only. However, you can contact anyone in India who can book tickets for you using your information. You can also book offline when you are in India. But ticket booking for any train starts 4 months in Advance. So, you need to have your bookings beforehand. You can also book your ticket in Tatkal Quota i.e. 1 day before the journey, for which you need to pay the additional amount. You can always Contact me on Faceboook if you have any further issues.

    Warm Regards,
    Anirudh Singh
