Dear folks,

A very basic question, sorry if this has already been posted (have searched but couldn't find anything similar).

I live abroad, have a non-Indian passport & OCI card. Can my friend book a rail ticket for me using her IRCTC profile?

Thank you in advance.

EDIT: Meant to say, have searched but couldn't find anything similar in the recent past after the international booking process has been updated, therefore am asking!!

Yes, your friend can book a ticket for you. However you would need to give him your passport number / OCI card no as the identity proof and you need to carry that with you while traveling.
