Hi everybody

There is so much information on this website, but I cannot find the following:
-Can I print out my e-ticket?
-If not: Where can I collect my e-ticket?

Thanks and cheers

Of course you can - there is an option "print e-ticket" in the menu to the left of irctc.co.in, so you can print any of e-tickets you bought.
Past the point of no return...

You must print out your e-ticket: it is what you take on the train with you. It is your ticket.

Just like most airlines these days!

So this printed ticket is the only thing I need to catch the train?
I was confused, cause Ive read that one can just print the reservation or something. Probably it was an old thread.
Thanks a lot

Im annoying, sorry.
Can I print the ticket only right after the booking or is it saved anywhere and I can print it whenever I want?

Yes.

(both)

It's ok... we've all been beginners at this stuff, and it is confusing at first --- but read the irctc site details carefuly, and check out the stuff on booking on this site, and you'll soon be at home with it all.

This is already there in many threads across this site, but still...

IRCTC offers two types of tickets, e-tickets and i-tickets.

i-tickets are like regular tickets, which IRCTC prints by themselves and courier it to you to your INDIAN address.

e-tickets are tickets for which you have to take a print yourself in your home/office computer, where you have a printer. To book in IRCTC, you need to have an IRCTC user ID and password. You can use the same ID to log on to the site later and go to Booked tickets history to take a print/re-print. There is, obviously, no additional charge for this print thingy.

In case you are forgetful enough (I am, so I care ) - please scrible down the PNR number somewhere. PNR is an unique ID for passenger(s) on Indian Railways. If you misplace the e-ticket, you can then show that PNR number to the Ticket Examiner and travel by paying a fine (for not carrying the ticket) of INR 50.00 per ticket.

As an ID proof, your (swiss?) passport is fine, and not always it is asked for by the Ticket Examiner (though they should).

You can print out the e-ticket directly from the Indian Railway website. Or, when you hit print ERS, you can save to PDF and print later from your PC/Mac.

The i-ticket (booked on the internet, but delivered as a physical item) was the only way of doing it in the earlier days of on-line booking. It is a pity they didn't just go straight to the e-ticket, but it is easy to wise after the event, and there must have been a considerable cultural attachment to the railway ticket --- which is still in evidence, given the number of people who find it hard to believe that one doesn't need one.

I have my attachment too. There was something romantic about those booklets of flimsy sheets covered in barely readable esoteric codes, that were air tickets, that is somehow lacking in self-print bording passes, and the same is true of e-tickets.

Of course, one still can get a card ticket for Indian railways by booking at a station here!

If you buy your ticket at irctc.co.in - you can login this site and there is an option "Print e-ticket" on the left. Or if you know your train's details - you can board the train and pay the fee (not too expencive, as I remember) to ticket collector.

I've booked a ticket online. I remember to have selected the "i-ticket" option instead of the eticket. But now, as the booking process is complete I see the "Print E-ticket" option at the left menu. Upon reaching there I see a printable option without the berth no. My address of delivery is being displayed here. Now, what do I do? Will the courier service deliver it? Or do I need to take a print-out of this page (without the seat no.)?

The i-ticket is a Physical train ticket that is delivered to your address in 2-3 days time. If confirmed it will have all details like coach and berth no..

Which city are you in? And why did you choose i-tkt? Irrespective keep the PNR no handy.
