train tickets. Once you know the price of the ticket or tickets needed, you will be able to plan your
journey quite freely and accordingly. Apart from knowing the fare of the ticket, one should also be

If you do not possess a clear view about all these, then you will find this piece pretty helpful as it

using which one can easily look for what he/she really needs. Indian Railway or IRCTC have tried
their best to provide all citizens of India with convenient ways of booking and checking tickets.
Now, let us take a glimpse of the possible options available.
Checking Train Fare
The best way to check train fare is to get registered into the official website of the Indian Railway
and get answers for all the enquiries. The process is easy enough and will just require your user
name and password.
Once you are registered, you will be provided with an option ‘Plan My Travel’ where you will have
to insert the names of the places you wish to travel to and from. After that you will have to specify
your expected dates of travel and the types of the tickets you wish to purchase. You will either get
an e-ticket or i-ticket. The available quotas are- Tatkal, General and Ladies.
Groups generally book the ‘General’ ticket
The amount of the fare of a train depends on the chosen train, age of the person and in which class
that person wants to travel. There are seven types of classes: FC (First Class), 2S (Second Class
Sitting), SL (Sleeper Class), CC (Air Conditioned Chair Car), 3A (Air Conditioned 3-tier Sleeper), 2A
(Air Conditioned 2-tier Sleeper) and 1A (Air Conditioned 1-tier Sleeper). Depending on these
accommodations, prices are set which you can easily know by either calling or by checking online.

you need to know whether they are confirmed or are in WL or RAC. irctc pnr status or indian
