check about the supporting file type by you mobile.
convert the ticket in to one of that format
and save it to ur mobile.
for example my mobile supports pdf files hence I convert it to pdf format.

I travelled from Hyderabad to trinelveli recently. While booking the ticket I went to the station and could directly buy Hyderabad tirunelveli tkt with onward reservation from chennai to Tirunelveli. Howevr, while I tried to book the ticket through internet I could not buy direct ticket. The option is that I have to book Hyd-Chennai ticket seperately and Chennai-Tirnelveli ticket seperately. However this option is costing some more rupees than the first option Why so. Please clarify.

IRCTC doesnt have the flexibility to buy the onward journey tickets and give you the benefits of the telescopic fare.
Its a COMMERCIAL service and hence such options are not introduced.
Where as, in the PRS, you can book the onward journey and the get the benefits of telescopic fare.

I dont think there is no point adding everything to the FAQ when the same is being referred from other sources.
We should guide guests and members to use the FAQ extensively, instead we still post the same content again.

I think it is Misleading . The First Digit is given for the below detail .
0xxxx - All Special Trains
1xxxx- All Reserved M/E Trains ( IR is Changing super fast Trains in 2 series)
2xxxx- Superfast Trains
Kolkata Local Trains
4xxxx- Chennai Local, Hyderabad MMTS. (47xxx series is alloted to Hyb MMTS)
5xxxx- All Passenger Trains ( in 5 Series the second digit 2 is given for MG/NG Trains and 3 Digit is given for Division (for example If a train number is 52xxx it will indicate that it is MG/NG Train)
6xxxx- All EMU Trains
7xxxx- All DEMU Trains
8xxxx- Left BLANK to implemented in future.
9xxxx- All Mumbai Local Suburban Trains (95 to 99 Alloted to Central Railway local trains)
95xxx Central Railways Main line Fast train Up & Down
96xxx Central Railways Main Line slow up train
97xxx Central Railway Main Line slow Down Train
98xxx Central Railway Harbour line up and down train
99xxx Central Railway Thane- Panvel line up and down train
998xx Central Railway Pune -Lonavala Up and down train
When IR change their train number from 4 to 5 digit they made some error which they are rectifying for some trains .
The second and third digit will be for used for zone and division and ( Except in 9 Series of Mumbai local Trains where the Third digit will be used for slow and Fast train)
The fourth and Fifth digit ( last 2 digit) will be used for that division/zone (which will be 2 and 3 Digit) Train number .
Still IR is working with the 5 digit number to be corrected in future for more detail information.

    -@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.
