People book tickets before travelling in trains through Computerized Passenger Reservation System Centers operated by Indian Railways. In this age of technology, most people make online reservations of tickets by visiting www.irctc.co.in website sitting at home to save time.

Through Passenger Reservation System, passengers can buy general or unreserved tickets from computerized unreserved ticketing system centres. Apart from this, train tickets can also be booked from the automatic ticket vending machines installed at the stations. In such a situation, when the computerized passenger reservation system operated by the Indian Railways is kept closed for improvement or other work, then people face problems. Therefore, the railways do this work at such a time when people will face fewer problems.
