"Dear Customer,
Congratulations! Thank you for using IRCTC's online rail reservation facility. Your e-ticket has been booked and the details are indicated below.
Please take a printout of the Electronic Reservation Slip (ERS)/a screenshot of ERS i.e. Virtual Reservation Message(VRM) OF YOUR TICKET FROM YOUR Booked Tickets History page .You have to carry this printout/VRM along with any one from the listed identity cards (Voter Identity Card / Passport / PAN Card / Driving License / Photo ID card issued by Central / State Govt / Student Identity Card with photograph issued by
recognized School or College for their students / Nationalised Bank Passbook with photograph / Credit Cards issued by Banks with laminated photograph) during train journey in original. Both these will be examined by ticket checking staff on stations/trains for verification purpose."
is it ok to show the screenshot of ERS instead of the printout as mentioned in the above excerpt from irctc email but the irctc call center reps are insisting on taking a printout and they dont know about the screenshot version when asking for clarity on this they connect me to senior ex. but no one picks up the call
I have bymistake entered the wrong mobile number so cant use that option.
can someone help me on this issue??

Hey you don't need to worry, just take the pdf file of the tcket. It is more than sufficient.
If ypu don't have phone which supports pdf file, then you definitely need to take a printout.

A report in Reuters said that the visit this week of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is likely to result in an announcement about a bullet train.
Japan will offer $8.11 billion loan towards the completion of a bullet train project. The project will cost Rs 98,000 crore and the train will run between Mumbai and Ahmedabad. Construction is expected to start in 2017 and end six years later.
If the report is accurate, it doesn’t sound good for Indian railways.
infrastructure in India is creaky on account of inadequate resources. Railway minister Suresh Prabhu made a good start to his tenure by vowing to channel investment into areas which would have a greater impact on the economy. Consequently, resources will not be diverted to creating new passenger lines which aim to please a specific constituency.
This made sense as the need of the hour was focused investment in railway infrastructure.
A decade ago railway’s finances began to improve on the heels of an economic upswing. However, the confluence of a higher outgo on account of enhanced salaries and pensions following the recommendations of the sixth pay commission and an economic slowdown led to a deterioration in the organization’s financial position.
Salaries and pension in tandem result in the single largest expenditure item for the organization. The extent of railway earnings they will pre-empt is set to rise as the seventh pay commission has recommended an enhancement in salaries.
Given the precarious nature of railway finances and the urgency with which it has to enhance its infrastructure, the last thing needed is a showpiece project such as a bullet train. A bullet train will not increase the speed with which India’s freight trains move- their movement must be one of the slowest in the world. India’s manufacturers are not going to more competitive if freight continues to move at a snail’s pace.
There is nothing intrinsically wrong with a bullet train. But given the priorities outlined in Prabhu’s railway budget, there is no case to borrow money to build a showpiece project at this moment in time.
Abandon this idea, Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

    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. .

    -@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.
