Hi All,
Can someone explain how many tickets (rough proportion) are available for sale through irctc?? Does railways put on sale all the 100% seats in a train through irctc, or is there any cap on it??
e.g. considering a situation, where the availability in a particular train is showing as "Regret" on irctc, is there any possibility( theoretically) that one might get a ticket if he visits any PRS ???

No, same number of seats are available through IRCTC as well as PRS counter for any train in India.. Everywhere, at PRS or online the status for a train is the same.

I had booked a tatkal ticket for my father for LKO Shatabdi for tomorrow using
While booking i wrongly entered "gender" as Female. I realised this when the final ticket was booked and confirmed.
IS there any way my father can undergo this journey?? He has all other documentary proof as mentioned in the booking, viz. PAN number etc.
respond as not much time is left for the journey.
Thanks all in advance.

Contact the Station Master and inform him and get your Ticket Endorsed with him, that your father is eligible to Travel with this ticket and he will modify it in the PRINTout,
go with Printout and All Original Documents as entered in Ticket Booking

I think it will not be a big issue PRACTICALLY. show the mobile sms with mentioned ID details.

ThanX for the replies..
Actually when i called the irctc helpline, the lady over the phone told me that this virtually amounts to forging and one would be practically dependent on the TTE's whim. If he allows then ok, otherwise one would be treated as ticktless and has to pay the penalty.
Guess this made me a bit jittery!! :)

officially they can not say more than this. every call they respond, get recorded. so this is their standard stereo reply.

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

    -@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.
