Indian Railways services can be booked online! Visit www.irctc.co.in and book online, paying with your international credit card. Save the hassles of queuing at the foreigners booking office and paying in foreign currency.

Features include waitlisting and cancellations / refunds (for a very small penalty). This means you can book and hold seats up to 3 months in advance, then cancel them if your plans change.

Bookings are only available against the general and ladies quota, not the tourist quota. This means that if seats are not available online, there may be seats available specially for tourists bookable through the foreigners' booking office.

The official website has lot of pop-ups and advertisement which make the user uncomfortable. This site does not show the passenger and express train which do not have a reservation coach. Here a user must know the train name or number and also station code without this information he cannot search the trains. they have given the link for searching the station code but if the user does not know the correct spelling of the station name he cannot get the station code. one more think is for each entry you will have to go to get it from separate page. if you does not know the date of running of the train then also you are not able to search the trains.

Whereas if you visit http://www.indiantrains.org/ it will help you to find the trains and stations if the user does not know the station code then also he can see all the trains and it is only website which have a drop menu box for the important station from where you can choose the station name and also it has a date calendar from you can choose the date and it show the running day of the train so that you can know which day of the week this train is running. the other most important feature I have seen in this website that it show the train which does not have the reservation coach for the benefit of the user and they are showing the passenger train also which is also not available in any website. This site will enable the users to search train route and compare fares of most of the trains in India.

Cons: Unofficial

Pros: all the features which user need, open fast, user friendly, good look and interactive, update data regularly, new features
