Yes.But only at selected and very few locations.
Very limited facility available with extra charges.
ATMs are available at all important stations.Better draw money from ATM and pay in cash at PRS counter.

some counters in some cities only accept Credit Card - not an ATM Card.
These are very few and are available only in some zones (S Rly- Chennai) etc. pl check in enquiry counter or look for cc counter before going for cc payment.
instead you can book thru irctc.

when i go from chandigarh to chennai sleeper class. I take paschim express from chandigarh to delhi and from delhi tamilnadu express, the same day. It is considered as a single journey, I guess, because the fare charges from chandigarh to delhi is discounted.
I want to know if i go from chandigarh to delhi on morning shatabadhi AC sitting and then in afternoon catch New Delhi-Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express/12424 AC 3-tier for Dimapur in Nagaland, will the fair charges from chandigarh to delhi on shatabadhi be discounted.

Can u plz tell me while going from chandigarh to chennai. If I do it from home e-ticket buying two tickets
1. chandigarh to new delhi on paschim express (sleeper)
2. New delhi to chennai on Tamilnadu express (sleeper)
chandigarh to new delhi costs me Rs. 120 + 20 (e-ticket + netbanking charges)
if i book from railway station counter chandigarh to chennai, the ticket from chandigarh to delhi (paschim express) costs me around Rs. 25. I get it from deducting the fare of NDLS-CHENNAI to total fare.
What benefit is this.

Don't you feel benefit of Rs. 95/- is adequate ?
Its like you are travelling Delhi-Chandigarh for free.
