  1. I got debit card payment option then after I select other bank options(because my bank is BANK OF BARODA), but other bank options is not coming. so please solved my problem.

  2. The new IRCTC system is flawed big time. I cannot cancel the ticket which was booked prior to the IRCTC migration to the nextgen ("so called") system as it expects me to enter "transaction id" along with PNR and other details just to look up my booked history. So, if you have not noted down the transaction id, you cannot cancel the ticket. The worst part is that the transaction id is not mentioned in the IRCTC email as well.

    Way to go IRCTC!!!, you just cannot seem to get things right. Your systems provider (Dev guys) do not seem to get basic business functionality right. Its a big shame!!! Due to your screwed up system, i am going to lose money as i cannot cancel the ticket now.

    • You can Cross Check or Cancel the Old tickets from booking history available in My Transaction –> Old Transaction History

  3. Im not able to proceed with Make Payment. My bank is not listed under Debit Card / Netbanking. I didn find any payment gateway option. Im not able book ticket. Please solve this, how can I proceed with make payment?

  4. New IRCTC site is seriously pathetic. It showed me booked tickets for 5 mins and then when I tried to take printout, it didnot happen. Now if I try to cancel the ticket, I cannot search the option for cancel the ticket or view my booked transactions. Everytime I opened the site, it simply take me to search train but no where i can see the booked transaction and no place to cancel the ticket. I am going to loose the amount of booking because of this site.
    Previous site was slow but atleast was clear and user friendly.

  5. This New system has screwed the booking process, Old Site is very user friendly and has streamlined flow, it seems that railway is helping the bookies for ticketing process not for common person.Payment gateways are all messed up it takes lot of time and in mean time the ticket agents stole all the available seats.If IRCTC have some ear for our comments then please, rectify these flaws.

  6. Kindly simplify reservation and more particularly CANCELLATION which is to be done in a time bound way otherwise customers stand to loose their hard earned money.
    I am trying to cancel one of my booked ticket but not able reachelp me. right site. Please h

  7. Sir,
    The new IRCTC Website is really much more complicated instead of previous website. It was much simpler in previous website. Important issues which I personally faced by using the new IRCTC Website are: i) It is not easy to login into new website. Many a times, I have to click 3-4 times at least to login in (even after deleting cookies/ history etc. in browser’s settings), ii) Trains appear not in order of 00 to 24.00hrs, rather they appear randomly. for e.g. a train departing from a particular station at 22.00hrs appears first while the one departing at 09.45hrs. appears at the end somewhere; iii) In case of cancellation of transaction…it comes ‘transaction failed’ simply and I need to follow up my bank statements whether the money is refunded or not, iv) Outlook of webpage is too much complicated, instead of smooth and soothing one – so much of information on the same page, while the actually required information for booking/cancellation is much lesser, v) The right side popup window is also complicated; instead simple links at the top or bottom of webpage or even on right/ left could have been better.

    Logging In is really prblematic, as far as I experienced while using this new version of IRCTC Website.

  8. the new web site of irctc is a very big problem to us.The old one was good.many a problems occur during log in the website.irctc should relace it in old website.
