Jaipur Jn (JP) to New Delhi Railway Station (NDLS) or Delhi Jn (DLI).

Delhi Jn is station for Old Delhi

The Cleartrip 'All Stations' option looks at all the stations in the city that you have entered. Not very relevant for Jaipur but useful for cities like Delhi or Kolkata which have several stations. All Jaipur - Delhi trains leave from Jaipur Junction JP but they arrive at different stations in Delhi - New Delhi NDLS, Old Delhi DLI or Sarai Rohilla DEE. You will only see the full choice of trains if you enter Delhi (All Stations)

For example entering Delhi (All Stations) to Kolkata (All stations) will give you more results than entering New Delhi NDLS to Howrah HWH as it will pick up trains from Old Delhi DLI and trains to Sealdah

You will wait a long time to get an invitation from Indian railways.

You need to give us more information.

When do you want to travel? Tomorrow? next week? next year? Morning? Afternoon?

What class do you want to travel in?

Seriously, do you want a reply to contain useful information?

If so, we need details.

There's probably 100 trains a day pass through Jaipur station, most of them fully booked.

What train?

From Jaipur to where?

What class? (are you looking only at air con classes, or are you happy to use the more crowded Sleeper Class)

What date?

Are you thinking of walking into the railway station, buying a ticket, then getting on the train? if so, you've a good chance of ending up in 2nd. class unreserved, and this is mostly very crowded and uncomfortable.

Unlike flight tickets, buying train tickets at the last minute isn't more expensive, as long as there's still seats/berths available, there is another kind of 'last minute' ticket, it's called a 'Tatkal' ticket, this is more expensive, but this needs to be booked a day before the train, and if you're not very near the front of the queue when the tickets go on sale, you won't get a confirmed ticket, and everyone wants those tickets, so they're difficult to get.

2nd unreserved is a bit of a gamble, sometimes you may be lucky enough to get a seat, very rare though, and sometimes it's so crowded that it's extremely uncomfortable, but most of the time it's just very busy with standing room only and no room to move your feet.

Be aware, some trains don't have unreserved carriages, these include : -

Rajdhani Express
Shatabdi Express

The following trains I'm not sure, hopefully others can help.

Double Decker express (not sure of the name)
Garib Rath Express

The list of trains that don't have unreserved coaches in general includes:
Shatabdi Expresses
Rajdhani Expresses
Duronto Expresses
Jan Shatabdi Expresses
Yuva Expresses
Garib Rath Expresses
AC Double Decker Expresses
AC Expresses

..there is one regular Express train that doesn't have any unreserved coaches, the New Delhi - Bhubaneshwar Weekly Express (#22805/06). There might be a few other trains that don't have any unreserved coaches, like some of the Kalka-Shimla trains.

(For an unreserved Jaipur - Delhi journey, the OP would then have to avoid the AC DD in the morning, the Shatabdi in the evening, apart from the Garib Rath)

Dashit,

If you want to travel without bookings, then you should forget the train and take buses instead.
