Indian Railways is widely renowned all over the world. It is one of the biggest employers in terms of employees in the world. It also has one of the largest railway networks. Due to its extensive coverage, millions of people travel railways on a daily basis. The trains are fast and train fare is very economical. There are many trains in India including local trains as well as long distance trains connecting major cities. Rajdhani (capital) is the luxurious train which connects almost all the state capitals and is among the fastest trains in the country. Duronto is the relatively new introduced train service which runs nonstop from source station to destination station. Garibrath is specifically launched for economically weaker sections of society. Garibrath fare is less than Rajdhani, Shatabdi and similar services are offered by them. That is why Garibrath has also been termed as “chariot of the poor”.

Indian railways services have been made online. You can get all the related information about railways including reservation, train schedule, availability, and fares online. For buying tickets, you need to register online. Once registered, you can check the available trains to your destination. You can get discount if you belong to certain categories (defense, parliament etc). There is special discount for senior citizens as well. You have to choose iticket or eticket. Iticket is similar to booking through railways counter as the ticket will be delivered to your shipping address. As such, you need to book itickets at least 3-4 days in advance. You can get reservation against cancellation and waiting list status tickets through itickets as well. For etickets, you can book even at last moment before the final chart is prepared. You can only get confirmed status tickets with eticket. For eticket, you need to carry print out of ERS (electronic reservation slip). Or if you get SMS from railways, it can also serve as ticket proof. You can also carry tickets screenshot in electronic format (virtual reservation message) like as in ipad, palmtop or laptop. In case of cancellation, there will be electronic refund only in both cases. Also, you need to carry proper original ID papers with you which will be required by ticket checking staff or TTE (train ticket examiner). The list of ID documents that are accepted are PAN card, election voters card, passport, driving license, nationalized bank passbook with photograph, unique identification card etc.
