In such a case, as soon as that page appears, click on the "Find Trains" option instantaneously

For payment portion, please add the following extensions to Chrome or Torch:
Now close the browser and reopen the browser
Go to IRCTC
Perform Auto Fill procedure till Passenger Details

Now Click on Payment option
Suppose you choose HDFC
Enter the card details, CVV, Date, Name
Now press Right Click - AutoFill - Add Rule for this field
You can also perform the same step for the next step (i
e
the Secure Code)
Now the next time you would reach the payment page and choose a similar payment option (Like HDFC), you would find the card details already being present there
Probably the best Auto-Fill Application for IRCTC
click here
Covers everything from Login to Passenger Details (Except for the Payment Part)

Kindly go through whatever I have written above.
The first link click here will be of no use for the new generation website.
However, the Auto Fill Link from the Chrome Web Store and Enable Right Click from Chrome Web Store should do the job.
First fill up ID/Password at the Login Page - Create Auto Fill Rules and name it Say Log In. Then Enter the Plan My Travel Portion - Create Auto Fill Rules and name it Say Plan My Travel - Choose Train/Class - Fill Up Passenger Details + Mobile Number (If you want to change it) (Leave out Captcha) - Create Auto Fill Rules and name it Say Passenger Details - Select Payment Mode (Net Banking/Card).
...
Read more...
If Net Banking Enter ID/Password (Do not Press Enter) - Create Auto Fill Rules and name it Say Bank Login.
If Card Fill UP Card Number/Name/Date/CVC - Create Auto Fill Rules and name it Say Card Details - Press Next - Enter Secure Password - Create Auto Fill Rules and name it Say Secure Password.
Now start the entire process all over again to verify that the Auto Fill Details has indeed been stored.
Right Click on the IRCTC Page - Auto Fill - Show Toolbar. Now simply select the concerned Auto Fill Name and keep pressing Next/Enter. (Captcha needs to be entered separately).
The only difference between this one and the earlier one (First Link in the initial post) is that in the earlier case, the Next Button was pressed by default. In this case, the user needs to do it. Nevertheless, this one still saves a lot of time if you are quick with your hands.

I can't see any bug which might arise.
You simply need to create different Auto-fill rules for each of the sections.
1) Log IN (IRCTC ID/Password)
2) Plan my Travel
3) Passenger Details
4)i) Net Banking ID/Password
OR
4)ii) Debit/Credit Card Details
If 4)ii) then 5) Secure Code Password.

Pune Divison Division accorded full priority barring just the one unscheduled halt at Kamshet to witness the 11026 PUNE-BSL Crossing and a regular one at Chinchwad

TRIP REPORT
.
With a much needed break, the week long vacation at Indore came to an end. Indore and MP had been very hospitable, I hope to return back soon to explore other areas. We had been there basically for a wedding and some sightseeing to go with it. We went to Indore on our own but decided to return back to Pune with the marriage party. The bulk booking had been made in SL Class, a few seats in S2 and a few in S3.
.
Accordingly, we arrived at PF-5 of INDB (The first PF from Siyaganj side) at around 13.45. As usual, keeping the bags in my parents’ custody,
...
Read more...
I set out to explore the station. Just as we entered, Malwa SF Express was entering with BRC WAG-5P. On PF-3 was INDB-NZM Intercity with detached TKD WAP-7 while INDB-KOTA Express was slated to depart from PF-4, but the rake was nowhere to be seen. The cute little MG Side of Indore was pretty vacant. The somewhat deserted platform sprang to action with passengers arriving to board 19312. The clock was ticking, 14.00 ... 14.15... 15 minutes from departure and still no signs of rake!! At 14.20, it was shunted in reverse direction from DWX end. 23249 BRC WAG-5P in WAM-4 shell/livery was the loco in charge. A pleasant surprise for me was that I got an emergency window seat, that too on the right side!! The coach condition was very good, keeping up with its ISO Certification. A dream come true for a railfan!! Checklist complete and at 14.40, the train set out.
.
The train was just crawling for a long time, saw the famous ISO Certified Indori trains on the way. A Duronto rake was resting peacefully while Shanti Express was getting a good wash. The train picked up speed only after passing LKBR, to arrive at DWX at 15.20. A brief halt of a couple of minutes and we were underway again, this time, WAGGIE was aggressive and hit MPS straightaway, to arrive at Mahakaal Nagari Ujjain at 16.00. A good amount of passengers were waiting to board the train from here. A BRC WAP-5, ASN WAG-5 Barbie Doll with BTPN and a lone WAG-9 gave us company for 10 minutes here. At 16.10, offering our obeisance to Shri Mahakaleshwar, we set off again. On the way to Nagda, crossed with RTM-BPL Passenger with BRC WAP-4 and some 2-3 freight trains, all hauled by Blue WAG-7 in WAP-4 shell. The run from UJN-NAD was pretty uneventful, and the train sneaked onto PF-3 at NAD, at 17.05. Ours was the lone train here and we departed on 17.08.
.
At exactly 18.00, we made our way into RTM on PF-4. We were welcomed by 12471 Swaraj Express with red hot GZB WAP-4. Dahod-Ratlam MEMU was expected to arrive shortly. Again, being a major station, many passengers boarded and a few got down as well. A few RTM Alcos were roaming at their home and giving them company were WAG-7s and BGKT WDP-4s. At 18.10, we got the starter and set out, for perhaps the most exciting leg of our journey, enjoying the setting sun and the lovely curve. The reason for excitement? Two premier trains - 12264 NZM-PUNE Duronto and 12904 GT Mail would be trailing us and following us closely all the way upto BRC and beyond. As a result, our humble Mail/Exp category train was converted into an aggressive SF by the controllers. Enjoying the lovely sunset and terrain, WAGGIE hit MPS in no time, to arrive at Thandla Rd for an unscheduled halt of 5 mins and finally into PF-2 of Meghnagar at 19.25. 19023 Firozpur Janta Exp was expected to arrive on PF-1 soon. We departed at 19.30 and entered Gujarat to make our first stop at Dahod at 19.55. Crossed the legendary Paschim at Dahod outer and arrived at Godhra at 21.05.
.
During my journey, I was in close touch with two of our regular IRI Members Amol and Anshul, for they had just concluded a journey from UJN-KYN a week prior to my departure. They both asked me to fasten my seat belt, for the train will give its “run of a lifetime” from Godhra-Vadodara-Surat, with 3 Superfasts trailing our train!! My eyes lit of with excitement and I geared up to witness the extravaganza. No sooner did the train leave Godhra, it started running like mad, aggressively crushing past whatever came in the way, at flat MPS!! The MPS Show was extremely soothing to the mind of the railfan in me, the track sounds, wind gushing, aggressive honking and what not!! I was informed this was just a trailer, as the real fun lies in the BRC-ST stretch, as 12264, 12904 and 12928 BRC-BCT SF (the third addition) follows our train and both 12264 and 12928 overtake us around ST. On the way to BRC, crossed the WR King 12951 BCT-NDLS Raj in full fury!!
.
The MPS Blast continued all the way till BRC outer, where we were made to wait. On the adjacent line was BRC WAP-4E 22344, with the rake of 12928 BRC-BCT SF taking it to PF-1. 12928 got the first clearance and after it had passed, we were given the go ahead. On PF-7 was Shanti Express awaiting starter. We were put on PF-3 at 22.30. I got down for a bit of breather and to stretch my legs and within no time, 12264 NZM-PUNE Duronto arrived on PF-2 with a big font P7, which explained how it was following us and why our WAGGIE was so aggressive. 12909 BDTS-DEE GR was on PF-4, just minutes away from its departure.
.
So the stage for race was all set. 12928 on PF-1, 12264 on PF-2 and 19312 on PF-3. As expected,. 19312 got the starter and we bid the “Sanskari Nagri”, The Cultural Capital of GJ - BRC goodbye and gave a flying handshake to the Deputy King 12953 AK Rajdhani at outer. I was awake to witness the high speed feast that would be following soon. I did get a bit of my share when the train hit MPS again and just flew past angrily but only upto Lakodara Dethan. We were made to halt here for 1 hour, I could only wonder what was the matter. I was much relieved when we got the starter, but the happiness was short lived, as were were looped in Palej. Destiny had something else in mind and what was thought to be a simple unscheduled halt turned to be a long wait. We waited and waited and waited, with 12264 arriving right after us to give us Company here as well. Half hour gone, One hour gone, two hours gone!! We could only wonder something was amiss ahead of us!! Now the speculations reached the peak, some calling broken OHE and some calling track fracture. The official confirmation came from the TTE and running staff that a goods train was derailed near Bharuch and trains from BRC-BSR were all stuck up, while there was absolutely smooth flow of traffic from BSR-BRC and beyond. But yes, there was blessing in disguise. With no signs of train moving atleast for the next couple of hrs, I perched myself on the bench and enjoyed the high speed show of trains bound to BRC. All Night Riders and Premier heavyweights were literally destroying Palej with the ruler of territory - BRC WAP-4 and BRC WAP-5 monsters, with occasional GZB ones. The lone KYN WCAM-2P, the ruler of CR passed with PUNE-ADI Duronto. The eerie silence of the station was being shattered during the blast while the continuous running of EOG of 12264 on adjacent PF provided background music to the thunder.
.
At last the bell rang, and P7 moved out first as expected. Within minutes, we got the starter and we were underway as well, late by 5 hrs. The WAG showed its mood and hit MPS, to arrive onto PF-2 at ST, at 05.30. A brief halt of 5 minutes and we departed. Despite we being late, the controllers gave us good priority and kept us trailing 12264. The train was running like a SF. Gujarat countryside was lush green with occasional drizzle and early morning work rush could be seen at larger stations like Navsari, Bilimora, Vapi & Valsad. Crossed a few Passenger trains hauled by Grandpa BL WCAM-1 in Rainbow livery and the speedster BCT-ADI Shatabdi with BRC WAP-5.
.
We had minimised the delay only upto a certain extent and arrived at PF-7 of BSR at 08.45. 12928 which was trailing us closely, overtook us here and 22904 BHUJ-BDTS AC Express followed suit as well.
.
From high speed WR to the sober CR, the difference in speed could be felt. A quick halt at BIRD and we were made to wait at KYN Outer. Her Majesty the Queen of CR 12124 Deccan Queen skipped KYN in all her glory. We had a parallel run with NER King 12534 Pushpak and 11029 Koyna followed suit, while legendary 12110 Panchavati followed DQ towards CSTM. We were put on PF-6 of KYN at 10.10, CR controllers rightly giving preference to on-time trains rather than our late one. We were given starter at 10.15. Slow and steady, the train arrived at PF-1 of KJT at 11.15. Usually, the attachment of bankers takes a mere 3-5 minutes, but we departed only after 20 minutes, for the reasons best known to the controllers. 17032 HYB-CSTM crossed us here, spotted an Alco after a long long time. WR is all about Electrics.
.
We left KJT at 11.35, with KYN WAG-7 Tigerface Triplets doing banking duties. The ascent was smooth. Bor Ghats were lush green, fresh and very soothing to the eyes. The atmosphere refreshed the tired and bored passengers. We arrived at LNL at 12.10 and left at 12.15, for the final leg of our journey. Pune Division accorded full priority barring just the one unscheduled halt at Kamshet to witness the 11026 PUNE-BSL Crossing and a regular one at Chinchwad. Again after a cheerful welcome by NZM-PUNE Duronto and P7 in Trip Shed, we finally made it to PF-1 at PUNE at 13.25, late by 5 hrs 15 min concluding a tiring yet an exciting trip.
