Thousands and thousands of people travel from train every day. IRCTC (Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation Limited) is the website for online enquiries and reservation of railway tickets. You can check everything including train schedules, ticket availability, and reservation status and buy tickets online. You can make reservation in any of the trains (Rajdhani, Shatabdi, Duronto, Garib Rath etc) to your destination.

For enquiring about particular train, you need to know about the name of the train or number. Visit the irctc website and go in the enquiries section. Click on train enquiry and you will be directed to a new page. You need to insert train name or train number. The portal will search accordingly and show you the results. You can then check for different days and also see stoppages in the route. You will be shown date, train name, station name, scheduled arrival time, delay in arrival, actual expected arrival, scheduled departure time, delay in departure, actual expected departure.
