A grab from the irctc login page official website old interface.

When the IRCTC login page opens it gives you an option to login. If you are a new visitor you should create your account first. Instruction to create a new account can be found on the official irctc website itself. Please make sure that all the details that you put in are correct. If you make a fake account irctc can disapprove your account at a later stage without any warning and can file a case against you for false impersonation.
The best thing about the irctc website is that it accepts all major Indian banks debit/credit cards and the payment is also possible via internet banking. I am using the website for the past 10 years and so far I have got no problems except few errors and payment failures. In case your payment is done i.e. amount from bank account is debited but ticket not booked then you need not worry. The system automatically reverses the payment and you get your money back within a week. So if your money is deducted and you didn't get your money back to your account you don't need to worry. Just for few days or about two weeks and even after you have not got your irctc login money back do try to contact irctc customer care.

Update: A great news for the irctc login registration users is that it is working on a brand new more user-friendly website which has been launched through the last week of April 2014. This new site is more robust, fast and gives less errors than the previous one. But as you can see irctc people are more concerned in revenue generation than hassle free user experience that's why the login username and password is in the middle of the page and you to look for it very carefully. For your covenience I have put here a screen shot of the login page.

IRCTC is now improving and has shed some ads to let you login fast by opening their homepage fast but most people think that this will not help in making the website fast as well because number of users are increasing exponentially. As per the railway budget 2013 it was able to handle 120,000 users at any given time.

Book Flight Tickets with IRCTC

Folks it is good news that now flight tickets can also be booked at irctc website. website provides a very detailed and easy to search interface to book domestic, international and LTC flight tickets. The advantage of using IRCTC service is that tickets are comparatively cheaper than the market rate and most of the fares are refundable. The option to select direct flights and refundable fares gives an extra advantage to the passenger.

Guest User or IRCTC User

It is better to login before proceeding to book a flight ticket at the website There are two options. Existing irctc users can directly login in the left panel or in case of new users they can login as guest user. This is important because any transaction needs to be saved and communicated to you hence your email and phone number is required.

Why use irctc air?

Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (भारतीय रेल खानपान एवं पर्यटन निगम), is a subsidiary of the Indian Railways that handles the catering, tourism and online ticketing operations of the railways. 
  • Being a government enterprise gives irctc more leverage and credibility. 
  • There is more transparency in pricing and transactions.
  • Refunds and cancellations are easier than other online portals.
  • The users who are already registered for rail ticket bookings need not create another account or go to any other website.
  • The website also offers ticketing services to those government employees who want to avail Leave Travel Concession(LTC). Since the concession is governed by certain rules and restrictions, it is better to use irctc than a private agency because in most of the cases private agencies are not allowed to book LTC tickets.
  • Cab & Porter Service: The site also provides facility to book a taxi or porter online. Following stations provide this facility:
