You can request a 2-berth coupe when booking your ticket (if booking over the counter in India), but you wont know if you’ve been given one until you arrive for your train, you can increase your chances by requesting in writing, take your request to the reservation supervisor at the train’s originating station.

Damn, I hate it when people simply reply with a question, is it purely an Indian thing?

If you book early, and book all 3 on the same ticket, then there's a good chance all 3 will be put together in a 4 berth cabin, though this isn't guarenteed.

There's no way to improve your chances that I know of, though you can probibly put a request in writing and ask the reservation supervisor (at the train's origin station) whome to address the request to.

One thing you need to be sure of, how many 1A berths are allocated to the sector you're traveling in (on the train you're using), you can find this out by doing an availability check 90 days ahead.

What train, from where to where, what date? (easier to just give the PNR number)

Was there availability before you bought the tickets? how many available?

In First Class air con (1A) you don't find out your seat/berth numbers till the reservation chart is prepared, your ticket will just inform you that you have confirmed berths.

What Steven_ber is trying to tell you is that till the charts are prepared you will not know, so you find your carriage and beside the door will be a chart with your names & berths .Apart from that he asked you more questions to try and help you out which you did not answer.

The berths/seats in AC1 class are sold in the same way as others, you may buy online or at the station, if 4 are still available...
The difference is that the berths/seats are not allocated until just before train departs.
I believe this is in case any "VIP" ministers, etc, require to have those tickets at the last moment.

So, book your tickets, but it is not possible to be certain of a two berth only "coupe", you may be lucky, or may obtain two berths within 4 berth cabin...

Indians like to pull rank!

We booked 1st ac from Kanyakumari to Mas.

I was, being an older citizen top berth. Other trio who was a prof at some obscure uni , Ma' Pa' Nd spoilt son took other berths whilst son sprawled on lower berth.

Himself was delegated to the next door suite, he had 3 adults and 3 kids with him.

My first solo experience was from Varanasi to Delhi, and an old biddy of superior caste to me, summoned me to lock the door , help her up from her berth.

Now we travel 3a/c and are happy with that
