I want to book the 4 bedded room with attach bathroom at IRCTC Guesthouse for 26 January. Do I have to pay the tariff in advance?

This booking can be done through IRCTC website. You will have to pay online. You may talk to them on provided numbers or write an e-mail to them to keep one room blocked for you.

Else you will have to check the availability on arrival. There are chances of getting accommodation there.

Hi Mdruk,

There were talks about possible inauguration of Katra Railway station on 26th Jan based on talks with local people during my Vaishnodevi visit, though nothing has been officially communicated yet.

As this guest house is relatively far off from the bus stand (0.5 Kms) people avoid booking there. Secondly, there is absolutely nothing around the railway complex (in 200 meters vicinity).

Considering you are four members and you are looking for rooms with attached bathroom, you will have to opt for some 3 beded or 4 beded A/c room which will cost you Rs 1099 or Rs 2200 respectively per night.

My suggestion would be to avoid booking any rooms there. Instead you can look for some decent room near bus stand area which can be available at much cheaper rates (comparatively).

Anyways, if nothing suits you, you can anytime visit the IRCTC guest house personally and get the rooms there on the spot.
