You can book through www.irctc.co.in....
You can also book through reservation counters set up in bigger railway stations in India, if you are already here. One advantage you will get from reservation counters through foreign tourist quota. Incase tickets are not available normally, you can use this quota.

1) Try setting up an account with IRCTC. But wouldn't work if you do not have a Indian Mobile Number.
2) Try booking at the PRS Counter.
3) Try to contact a registered IRCTC Agent or any other businessman involved in this business.
4) Try to avail Foreign Tourist Quota (If available for the particular train/class of travel/journey leg) once you arrive at India
by visiting specific counters at selected stations by showing your passport in original.
5) Try to register via Cleartrip. There is a slight tweak discussed at Indiamike by which you can bypass the need of an Indian Mobile Number for registering at Cleartrip and IRCTC.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
