irctc-login.jpgIRCTC Login Complaint

I have an IRCTC account which is locked second time after login.
When the login was failed then Ii tried to reset the password through forget password link mention on IRCTC, it asks User id, question and Answer. I provided all the details and it throws an error "Answer is Incorrect". This happend second time and both the times i tried to login to the IRCTC through the actual password.
I sent an email at and got an automated email as Ticket Confirmation for the request.

I waited for a week and there was no response from IRCTC customer care. I called the IRCTC people on 24 Hrs. Customer Support at 011-23340000 and it took about 12 calls to make them understand about the issue. When ever i called up the IRCTC customer support the person attnding the call will redirect me to higher department of IRCTC after listening to my detail and again i need to explain whole story, inshort that was waste of time and money.
IRCTC should hire service and satisfaction oriented support executives so that it a common man has no pain of wasting time and money.

Another issue with IRCTC is its very difficult to book a TATKAL ticket from Source of Boarding to destination even after login to IRCTC website.
According to the new rules of IRCTC a person can book Tatkal ticket from the Actual Boarding station to the destination.
For example i tried to book the ticket on 6614 Coimbtore Exp (Coimbtore to Rajkot) from salem to pune. Train starts on thursday at 23:45 from Coimbtore and reaches Salem on 2nd day i.e friday. according to the Tatkal booking via IRCTC one should book a ticket 2 days prior to the date of journey it means for this train ticket should be booked on tuesday. It was not allowing me to book a ticket from Salem to Pune because it reaches Salem on 2nd day and tatkal ticket can be booked only 2 day in advance.

When called IRCTC customer care an executive explained me that there are different different quota for each station and train reaches salem on 2nd day, so i must book a ticket on wednesday and not on tuesday. When i tried to make him understand about the rule of tatkal quota but he was not ready to listen.

Why IRCTC Site Never Loads

    Dear Sir

    I would like to submit my complaint against IRCTC login where i booked a ticket for two passanger from Patna to Khandwa in tatkal Quota but boarding point at Jabalpur . The PNR No. of the same is 6232925451.The train was a special holiday which was moving from Patna to Lokmanya tilak terminus.

    The same train was moving late by more than 3 Hours from Jabalpur station so i booked another ticket in Tapti Ganga Express via IRCTC website after login. As per IRCTC rule if the train is moving late by more than 3 hours than we are entitled to cancel or file the TDR to cancel E-Ticket So i filed TDR after login. The TDR reference No. is ekt200910500750750.

    I got a letter from the railway that the TDR is not admissable due to the train was on right time as well passanger travelled on the ticket also.

    But as i have already informed in my latter i travelled in another train.So may be Ticket Checker would have been alloted these seats to another passanger.

    Request you to please look in the same matter.

You can login to IRCTC website and go to "Booked Tickets" link and select the ticket to be cancelled and can initiate the cancellation by selecting the passengers to be cancelled. Cancellation would be confirmed online and the refund would be credited back to the account used for booking as for normal Internet tickets.

    This train is too crowded due to schedule once in a week. On the day of booking start, it gets booking more than 200 waiting list in 2nd class sleeper ( proof on IRCTC website after login ).More people from UP & Bihar use to jurney by this train, those are staying Vapi, Valsad, Surat region. They dont have other option. Few days back, major incident has happened at Vapi satation due wrong announcement of plateform no, few person were killed due to crossing the rail track, as declared in paper only 2 persons. All sleeper boggies become general due to be too much crowed of people.I want to get attention of Railway Ministry to enquire this complaint and increase the train in this rout.
