Indian railways , which is operating 65000 rail track routes serving 7500 railway stations, maintains a ticket reservation system through its computer network. Railway tickets are sold online by Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Limited, shortly referred as IRCTC, a BPO of Indian Railways.

This will be an independent activity of furnishing details of your User ID and password, both for entering the bank account and for authorizing the transactions. Some banks, like ICICI require you to furnish authorization codes available only with their ATM cards supplied to you and you should be ready with that information as you start booking rail tickets online.
