Can't Access IRCTC Reservation System - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Akhand Pratap Singh · 3 days 6 hours 55 mins ago

irctc is totally like bullshit it again proved that the technology can't change the life of indian people without making a line at ticket counter because no one is interested to make it better as they don't have problem regarding the irctc tecketing... because they are VIP people..

Venkat Thunga · 4 days 2 hours 27 mins ago

Horrible experience with IRCTC ! This is the worst Website i have ever been in my life !

Amit Jain · 4 days 21 hours 38 mins ago

I have tried booking tickets on IRCTC 7-8 times since morning.. everytime my account got debited but the ticket was not yet confirmed. Frustrated with IRCTC's such a long downtime. They should atleast publish on the website that the system is down right now.. so that we don't waste time in long ticket booking process.

Seshagirirao Mellachervu · 4 days 23 hours 55 mins ago

This failure is a recurring nature for IRCTC. Let IRCTC entrust ticket booking to private people.

Seshagirirao Mellachervu · 17 April 2014 - 07:38

Always slow when IRCTC site will be improved i am watching from the last 5-6 years very bad. tatkal one day before is also irritating. this is only useful for agents not for public. for each head the agent is collecting INR 500/-. indian railways is very worst. facebook and google are very very fast. is anybody working properly in IRCTC?

Sayeed Mohd · 4 February 2014 - 21:44

i book the ticket and amount is debited from bank account after this message shows"please wait while your transaction is being processed don't press refresh or back" more 25 mints it shows the same.. my ticket is booked or notyet.. how shoould i know..

C.p. Krishna Kumar · 25 December 2013 - 21:10 is DOWN for everyone. Someday someone should sit down and calculate the number of man hours that IRCTC has cost the Indian economy. It is going to be one humongous figure.

Bibhuti Bhushan Barman · 25 December 2013 - 21:03
