Hi All
Have tried booking a train (No. 2716 from Agra to Aurangabad) for 21 Jan '08, and have been rejected three times. My credit card has been charged each time tho! :-(
Indian Railways have sent me emails saying my money will be refunded, but I'm just wondering why I can't book this particular train. I've managed to book all the others with no dramas.
I've emailed them to ask, but never get any response! Wondering if some of you train experts (Steven Ber?!) might be able to give me a heads up?
Any hints/clues/suggestions gratefully appreciated.
Cheers
Jaz

Try this thread, covers a lot of it. Similar questions have been recently discussed at the end of it, so you might want to scroll over there (to the end, I mean): http://www.indiamike.com/india/india...s-guide-t4305/ . I'm sure it's all been covered many times before on that thread btw (that's no accusation), so just read around there, it's handy.

Good luck with it.

IRTC doesn't seem to answer their emails, to anyone. Stop payment should happen through you on your end: contact your cradit card people.

You're trying to book during peak times. Not to worry. Take a bus if the train is too much of a pain!

It happened to me as well..I was not able to book the ticket and my card was charged three times..!!

However you have to be persistent, try using a different card (Visa/MC/AMEX) OR try changing the gateway...if possible you can pay them by direct debit as well...

I did the same and got my tickets done..
