India train tickets

Good news for anyone wishing to book train tickets independently within India. IRCTC website is now accepting international mobile numbers for registration purposes. INR100 cost to register, process went without a hitch (surprisingly) received OTP immediately.

Hope that helps all.

International credit cards can be used also. However be aware you can't get discounts like senior discount as a foreigner. Despite that train tickets are dirt cheap in foreign currency so not a big deal.

Yeah, it's a good news but they need to run their website without down time and user friendly design. IRCTC site lacks user friendly design.
