In India, railways are the most preferred mode for travelling from one place to another. Other public transport like buses have less connectivity and air travel is very expensive. On the other hand, trains are very affordable option. Furthermore, Indian railways have extensive connectivity to far flung areas as compared to air carriers which connect major cities only. Due to huge demand, many express trains service India. Shatabdi is among the fastest trains and usually has short to medium routes. For long distances, Rajdhani and Duronto are great express trains to travel on. Rajdhani is the premium long distance train which connects mostly all the state capitals.

Duronto express is similar to Rajdhani and has shorter journey duration because it has no stops. Duronto express travels from source station to destination station without a stop. Duronto express connects major cities in India. Presently there are a total of 29 Duronto express trains and their number is set to be increased. Garib Rath (chariot of poor) is newly introduced train which has similar facilities like Rajdhani but has cheaper fare as it is made for people who can’t afford higher fares. You can book railways tickets directly from railway station counters, through travel agent or online. Booking online has been very popular as it is very convenient for passengers. You can register on railways website and look for the trains running to your destination. You can choose among the list of trains and select any among them if they are available. You have two options to get tickets- iticket and e-ticket. I-ticket is almost same as ticket obtained from railway counter. You need to reserve i-ticket a few days before actual travel since tickets will be sent to your shipping address. You can book these tickets even if they are not confirmed i.e. in reservation against cancellation or waiting list status since their status can change before chart is prepared. For cancelling these tickets, you need to visit any railways centralized reservation counter or online.

You can cancel i-tickets even after departure. The amount will be refunded electronically to your account. The other alternative is e-tickets which can be reserved even at last moment just before the final chart is prepared. You can only reserve available or RAC tickets. You cannot book ticket if it is in waiting list. Also, cancellation of e-tickets can only be done online and must be done before final chart of reserved train is prepared. The amount to be refunded will be electronically transferred to your relevant account from which booking was made.
