I have booked a ticket for my father and received the the ticket sms on my mobile. Can I forward the sms to my fathers mobile, so that he can use it during travel as a valid ticket? If not then is there any other way of sending the sms to his mobile (through irctc website)

As per my understanding, Advanced Reservation Period is 60 days. I have to travel on 05-Nov-2013 from Secunderbad to Jhansi. As of today IRCTC website is not allowing booking 05-Nov-2013 in AP Express, which is expected. However website is showing that there are no seats in Gorakhpur Exp (already WL14/15) and it is allowing to book tickets for Rajdhani. I want to know if ARP is different for different trains / routes or it is same across all trains / routes.

It is the same, GKP Exp/Rajdhani must be starting previous day from SBC so the ARP for all stations start as soon as it starts for train's originating station...

I am trying to book ticket for 11-Feb-2013 and today is the opening day for the 120 day window. I am surprised to see that there are only 3 seats available in AC 3 tier (LJN - SC). I am looking for lower seats for senior citizens and I am not getting the lower seats. I am wondering if there is a different quota defined nowadays for online booking. Can someone help me understand how this entire thing is working? It is hard to believe that so many people are doing booking in advance on day 1 of the window.

We have a ticket, which is booked against a warrant (ticket is for a defense person). The generated ticket has mistake in the Age and Gender of the traveling person. However the warrant # mention in the ticket is correct, which clearly shows correct details of the defense person i.e. age and gender. What corrective measures can be taken to travel without any issues? If we go for ticket cancellation then there are no seats available now, so there is no scope of getting a confirmed seat again. Please help.

Modification not possible even if the fault is of PRS only thing they can do is cancellation without cancellation charge but as you said berths are not available then either you can book a WL ticket if CNF chance exists or try to bring matter infront of Senior commercial staff and see if any favor can be granted(not on paper though).

the question is : whose fault is this?
if fault of PRS, then they will find a way out
if your mistake, then no way other than cancellation

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. .
