:: IRCTC Login :: How to Login IRCTC website www.irctc.co.in

IRCTC login is simple process. A log in page is provided at IRCTC website to log in to your IRCTC account. To log in IRCTC website you should have created an IRCTC account, because only registered users are allowed to access the website. If you don't have an account create new IRCTC account.

Update: IRCTC next generation e-ticketing system has launched, check how to log in through NEXTGen IRCTC Login form.

The IRCTC website is accessible all the time and therefore you can log in to your account at any time. But you are allowed to book tickets after 8 AM only and also it is difficult to log in an IRCTC account during the Tatkal reservation hours. Therefore avoid IRCTC login during Tatkal booking time.

Of course, you need to book Tatkal Ticket but make sure that you have a high speed internet connection. It will help you to book Tatkal ticket quickly and easily without any problem. Also it is more faster and easy to book tickets on IRCTC mobile website and apps. Check more Tatkal ticket booking tips.

There is no specific IRCTC login time to access the services of Indian Railway Catering and Tourist Corporation. You can log in any time and book ticket. But time between 9 AM to 12 Noon is peak time to access the website, during this period of time many users try to log in from all over India to book Tatkal tickets. Therefore server is quite busy and you may face problem to log in. Usually you will get 'session expired' error message.

Also it is very important to maintain correct and updated information in your IRCTC account.

If you are facing any problem to create IRCTC account and to access IRCTC Login page. I also have an account with Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation website. And always book tickets online, it is quick and easy to book tickets on the website. But it is bit difficult to log in the website during Tatkal booking timings. We can always contact the customer care if there is any problem with IRCTC login.
