We have tried pinging IRCTC Reservation System website using our server and the website returned the above results. If irctc.co.in is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

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.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

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

Amit Jain · 1 day 5 hours 29 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 · 1 day 7 hours 40 mins ago

I CHCKED THE STATUS MINUTE TO MINUTE FROM 5PM TO 5.30PM TODAY. I WONDERED THAT IRCTC CONSISTANTLY NOT WORKING.

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

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

C.p. Krishna Kumar · 25 December 2013 - 21:10

Irctc.co.in 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

Sandeep Mellacheruvu · 16 November 2013 - 20:30

Infact irctc announced server will be shut down from 3pm to 10pm on 17/11/2013. But it went off even at 10am--sandeep Hyderabad

15 miniutes passed for tatkal booking today. There is no announcement irctc or railways about the server down on 17th november 2013.

We can expect suspension of irctc services for tatkal very shortly. This may be the trial session of shutting down server today since the booking is on way through railway counters today.

Salim Ahmed · 16 November 2013 - 13:22

Just called IRCTC. the site is down for maintenance and will be up and running after 5 AM
