hello friends,
i wanted to make a group railway ticket reservation for my family group. Is there a way to do that, thru the online website irctc.co.in? There are 8-9 members in the group. i tried the website, but could find option for 5 passengers only. For additional ones, u need to do a new reservation.

is there any way out for this matter? pls suggest at the earliest.

thanks, anirban.

Trundle over to a railway station (or booking agent)? Sorry, that's all I can think of.

Create one more user ID and book. But both the groups may not get reservations together.

Why another id. A single ID is enough and the OP need to do 2 reservations.

To OP:-

You may approach the Reservation counter and normally in computerized reservations centre, there will be a separate counter for Group / Bulk Bookings.Bulk Booking /Group Reservations is perfectly doable in Reservation counters.

yes...that's perfectly doable in reservation counters. but i guess it's not for online booking. And making 2 separate reservations will lead to different seat/compartment allocation, which is undesirable.

anyways...thanks for the suggestions.

You should have a reason for Group booking, like a Wedding or a Group tour or something similar. You should apply in writing (if a wedding along with a Marriage invite as proof) along with details of all passengers in advance of booking opening, i.e more than 60 days in advance. On Opening day, book along with others at special Group booking counter.

No extra charges apply as far as I know.

Thanks for reply. I also visited railway supervisor office. They told me that they allow group booking of tickets only after 11am. So thats a big concern as normal booking starts at 8 am.

If the group is big enough and the Zonal Railway has coaches to spare and the coach is likely to be occupied in the return as well, they will add a coach as well.
