You need to be in Delhi for this, but you can collect the tickets from the "collection centre" or have it sent onto someone you know.

Unhappy Sadly, no...

The scheme is quite new and you have to be in Delhi.

But I can imagine its coming to Bombay fairly soon - although not soon enough for your trip.

Cool Internet Booking


Hi All!
Have a quick question. Want to book a train ticket over the internet, leaving from Mumbai CST.
Has anyone done this, is it legit and can you get the ticket delivered to the Mumbai station and pick it up there? I am just a bit worried if I get the ticket sent to the station by typing in the Mubai CST train station on the dleivery page of the India Railways, that like most things in India, I can't totally trust that it will be there when I go to pick it up.......
Cheers to anyone who can help.

Hi Reidy

Welcome to Indiamike.com

At the moment you still cannot get tickets delivered to the train stations (other than New Delhi).

Try this link for more information.

One of the most amazing things about India is that, despite what may seem like chaos and overwhelming bureaucracy, things do turn up, god alone knows how, no sooner have you convinced yourself that the officials are stark raving mad, you find everything has worked just as it should.

An enjoyable, educational hour, can be spent changing money at a Bank of India branch (is that the right name?), it will be a small example of how India never allows one man to do the work that 10 men could do.

I'm trying to look at trains from Delhi-Bikaner and back for next year, and the site keeps telling me the trains are cancelled! Any ideas?

ZIP = Zoning Improvement Plan; implemented in 1963 by the U.S. postal service to increase automation of mail sorting. When was the PIN code system implemented in India?

If your mastercard have the normal xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx number and the xx/xx exp date you really should be able to get by.
I don't seem to remember that IR asked for the 3 digit code on the back of the card, but on some web pages you will need to apply that as well.
