Hello,

can I pick up an online-booked train ticket at the reservation office in Delhi, if a have no address for delivery?
If this is not possible, does anyone have experiences with a city-bank address in Dehli as a delivery address. I'm a city-bank customer and perhaps it may be possible.

hi heiko

there was a recent thread on this topic but it seems that the general consensus is that you can't pick them up - this is also what the website says in bold red letters just before you pay for your tickets. I presume that this is also why they have introduced a E ticket system.

I have arranged for all my tickets to be delivered to my hotel in delhi so that they are waiting for me when i arrive. Perhaps you could pre-arrange one nights accommodation for this purpose? i am staying at hotel 55 in CP but i am sure that most hotels would happily accept delivery for you.

There were two recent posts by neeltje on the 'Booking Train Tickets from Abroad' thread to the effect that it was possible to pick up booked tickets at the Chelmsford Road office. The original post from May 30 contains correspondence with an IR officer indicating that the office was 24 hours and gave the proceedure. Neeltje's second post on August 7 reports success picking up the ticket. Here are the posts, but it would probably be worthwhile checking personally first if you wish to go this way.

Let us know how you make out as many of us would also be interested.

Few years back it was possible to pick up tickets at Delhi, now that facility DOES NOT exist.

So the best option is to get the tickets delivered to your hotel.

good luck.

Login to your account on the site you booked from. In the booked History, you will have all tickets booked. Select the one and print.

you don't have to have the e-ticket to travel.
Just show appropriate ID on the train and pay the 50 rupee fine/surcharge.

You can take a print-out of the e-ticket you booked online.
Why take the trouble(or risk)of waiting the ticket to be delivered at your doorstep when you can get it printed instantly!!
Better still, use a travel agent(will charge you somewhere around INR 100 or INR 300(for TATKAL booking)
and all the trouble is his ...

So, let me see if I understand correctly. If I book a Rail ticket on line, I have an E Ticket.
I can show up on train, show ID and they can look it up?

Because I guess what if I cant print the ticket from my computer, not taking printer.

Also, wondering what are other options? Do i go to a window to pick up the actual ticket for the reservation I made and to get on the train?

Thanks!

With the convergence of mobile phone-internet on your portable device it should be possible to do the following:

From a PC, book the train ticket (do you need an Indian mobile # to do this?) and save it as a PDF.

E-mail the PDF to yourself.
Retrieve the PDF on your mobile phone/gadget and save it - show it to the TTE in the train.

Will the above work? IRCTC is advertising "paperless" ticket as the way to go.

Cheers

However, Stardust - check there is availability for your preffered journey, before stressing yourself about the whole credit card linking thing. Given that you are travelling to india in a few days, i doubt that you can get the tickets you need on the net. However, once inside india, you can book foreign tourist quota tickets(not available on the internet) from certain main train stations.

Once you have an Indian mobile number and it is part of your profile on IRCTC, you will also get an SMS on the Mobile Number. That too is enough along with an ID.
