Reviews From google play store

Very useful app. But Customer service/support option should be provide such as chat support/email service to drop concerns regarding tickets not booked and money deducted from account. I know refund is automatically initiated as per instructions given on IRCTC site, however I happened to be in such situation and it took about 2 days to update the status on app and at that moment I had no other way to track if the refund will be initiated or what but to wait for the app to update status.

Dear IRCTC, If you'll give an option like 'Self' instead of add passenger. It'll save time during TATKAL Booking. And make sure that option will directly took me to my saved payment option, after clicking on Book. In 2 to 3 clicks, ticket should be booked. Where 'Self' option will fetch all the data from IRCTC profile like Name, DOB, PAN, UID details.

I feel very happy to post this feedback. Before I used many apps to check train tickets availability and fare. But this app is really awesome compare to others. Tickets confirmation also good. I suggest each and everyone should use this app. I appreciate the team who designed this app. Add some more features also.

The app is crashing exactly at the time of making payment while I'm booking tatkal ticket. 432 berths available at 10.00am in Garibrath 12739. And payment for first attempt failed in 30 seconds and i had to log in again. Second attempt, at 10.00.45 am, only 122 berths available. When i made payment, it went to TQwl waitlist of 118. Touts who gets ready with robust broadband and they r habitually doing tickets, they cn read captcha in split secs, but we have retype as we r occassional users.

It gives good option to book from home. However booking tatkal tickets is never possible - they give better bandwidth to agents over individual users. Most irritating feature is cancellation - whereas over the counter tickets are cancelled at minimum fixed rates online cancellation is much costly. Again booking ticket from windows is cheaper than here. We use our own data, save railways from printing and paying salary of ticket clerks, still they impose transactions charges.Very pathetic.

Team, Why do we need OTP before making payment when app is asking for OTP just after login? I did not receive OTP after trying 10 times. Imagine same scenario while booking ticket in tatkal. Do you think user will get ticket in such scenario? Why not use captcha instead? Safety is important but what's point if people not able to book ticket because of it. Make sure app switches to captcha when email and sms services failing. BTW my internet was fully functional and mobile was in range.

This app is simple and Hessel free. There is no chance of failure of transaction like other app. Once payment is done you get the tickets. Tatkal tickets can not be booked on Booking agency and in Railway station you have to wait on long queue, then also there is no guarantee that you will get ticket. But in this app you can easily book Tatkal ticket. I am giving 4 star because of Ads. NO Ads Please. This is a Govt App. And also improve UI.

I have been booking for all my train journeys only through this app... It's extremely trustworthy... I get all the details I need about a particular train... I have been using it continusly in recent time.. atleast booked my tickets 10 times in a row now in past 2 months... Since I'm traveling frequently from Mumbai to Coimbatore to Kerala more often....

This app is getting worse day by day the main problem is during ticket booking the amount will be deducted from the bank account but the ticket will not be confirmed almost it happened 10 times to me ,especially when i am booking at tatkaal it happened 5 times so that i could not book a ticket and my travelling become so hectic during that time plz resolve this issue ,too much persons are complaining about this issue but u r not showing any interest plz do respind to ur users

I updated it last day and when today when i was trying to book a ticket said update it ...update is ok ..but daily updates are annyoing...and worse part is that in other apps u can use them without updating ..but irctc wants update to open it ..if u r in a low network area then forget to book ticket ..bcoz u hv to update it before booking ...

Very nicely developed this app, easy operatability. But still there is no end to do betterment like how to do reduce the time and hanging problem. On single page all things is done and only payment passwords filling. I didn't even UPI payment options, please add this very important payment mode. Thanks

There is no provision to reset the user id and passwords. Also mobile number is not getting updated. Many emails and reminders sent to IRCTC but it is completely a failure. User id is blocked without any information qnd without any reason. Very poor service in this. They must develop their systems.

Worst app ever👎 many times my transation failed and my money cuts but never refunded. IRCTC doesn't even work on filed TDR. And in case of tatkal it's impossible to get ticket from this app as it's too slow even if you are living in urban areas. So many times updates of IRCTC comes on play store but what's the use of updating if it doesn't work properly? Please do refund.

Though I have given 5 star rating to this app just because there are no other app where I can book my train tickets and I am writing this review inspite of knowing that no one from IRCTC side is going to see this review. Why this app does not work whenever new update is released. This is not fair to immediately abandon older version just after releasing new update.

Irctc app is the connect people to the best travel sources in the at time , i gave the 4 /5 rating on the play store because I am really satisfied to the it's app, by using the app we confirmed the 🚆 tickets very easily in the minimum time losss without go any where, any people have some knowledge the internet and this usages which are easily working with its , so i suggest the my dear friend use the app and be the your life easy

All are good except one process. If session out then app must redirect it to log in screen which is not doing so. You have to close app and open the app. Its very irritating. Please solve this issue. And if you log out then same thing occurs one ad open and then closing the ad also close the app.

Very slow. During the pick hours of tatkal reservations it doesnt open soon. Not that easy to get confirm tatkal reservations, because payment processing is very slow and error comes almost 7 times out of 10 number of transactions. for regular reservations it is good app.

App gets slow while booking tickets. Sometimes it's logouts automatically at the time of booking tickets...Yes I accept that it is a huge railway network but I hope you will get rid of this problem soon..

update should be atleast after two months or three months not very frequent.. it is very difficult to upgrade and use whenever it is urgently required to use. There shouble be an option to upgrade later option.

It's a very good app for train ticket booking...but need to improve features for taykal ticket booking. Also , should show refund status of long period. But in this small package it's a very good app.

There is no option to select name of travelers from the list which is already updated/AADHAR verified. Every time needs to go through website of IRCTC after 5 bookings of tickets. Better to provide facility in App also.

It is a good aap. It makes a task very easy to accomplish by showing the availability of seats in the train, by showing the route of the train and with many more features.

I want payment by UPI but its get logout of system every time when i go for approval of amount in back account ..even i have not press back button... Almost 5 time i have try.. but its worng process done in new update... Shame on u want to increase digital transction..

It's irritating when one need to check something on the app and the app doesn't allow you to proceed even if there are some basic cosmetic changes in the app. This dictatorship is imposed on user on every app update.

It will be very good if we have a option to book the connecting trains, where there is no direct trains between selected source and destination stations.

Not for Tatkal booking. Govt. Apps should have minimum performance. Waste of time and lot of money if we rely on this app for Tatkal Booking. I doubt if the development team has ever tried booking a Tatkal ticket using this app...

Very very bad...with the new update this is an App for Ad display...With every key stroke u get an Ad popping up from any where.....Purpose of this App is more of income generation for IRCTC than convenience for common customer...

Nice app but when the time comes to pay the booking amount for Tatkal Booking, it always fails and I have to pay the amount again! It sucks only at the time of Tatkal Booking but for normal booking it is fine!

VERY GOOD APP. I PURCHASE MY TICKET THROUGH THIS APP. But at present berths are not alloted according my for example I opted at least one lower berth out of 4 berths as we are 69,65,61,61 aged berths are alloted 2 middle & 2 upperberths. Bhubaneswar bnc exp.though 80% berths were vacant.It was very horrible.

While booking time, app will suddenly logout. Not able to check the SBI credits and we cannot utilize the points while booking through app. Not developing for iphones, very worst.

Not recommended application, slow service every time refresh at time of booking and transaction failed many cases many passengers, I suggest our service to handle privately(handover).

Nice app for online ticket ...but the charges that Irctc had implemneted is not godd ..becouse of this many people had stop using irctc..if irctc want to charge then they should charge less amount ..not RS15or RS30. Becouse of this charge online ticket are becomig so coatly

Good app.and work is easy.Very easy to booking.I have been using this app for 3 years. Never had any problems. Tickets are easily booked from home.

Failed transaction is very common. Amount gets debited but no reservation Plz upgrade so that if reservation is not done No amount should be debited. Moreover,refund takes a long time

This app is full of advertisements. I never seen any government app like this. As we dont have any other option we are using this app for booking train tickets.

Just debiting money from bank account and then displays service not available. Crazy app..This seems obsoleted now....Refund after 20 days.. prefer to look for some other apps.

Worst negative point of this app.. You can't even open if their is any upgrade.. Suppose anyone not have internet facility at any time then? There should a option of skip/remind me later... Thank you

Very easy to operate. Superb interface and app response is good. But theme of the all should be light colored.

Nice but sometimes am unable to book the tickets due to it shows as "only two tickets allowed from one IP" when i didn't even book single ticket.

Very nice ...easy to one thing required when book a tatkal ticket it gets slightly slow and the running status of our train want to be upgrade to these app..

So many updates !!! And it wont run without updating. So annoying when you are in a hurry.

When I book my tickets (UTS),it's ask about mock location, I have changed my all settings but it's still pending, I'm unable to book my tickets

Great experience with bookings and payment. I must commend developers for it. Keep it going.

Very good app for travel booking of trains. Add some share options for sending easy to send others. It is help full .

A very slow and frustrating app. They need to improve their digital infrastructure.

Excellent app you easily booked your rail ticket but rare chances tickets not booked and amount deducted it's a very bad experience but amount refund 2-3 working days.

Its a very good app and easy way to book railway tickets and reserve the seats in advance.

This app is not working It give no result on search since one month I reinstalled but problems remain as usual Other reservation apps are working well Please solve the problem as it is official app

No any other worse app like irctc. amount debited from my account and showing transaction fail.customer care replying they r not receiving any amount from my account transaction.then where is my money. Govt work no any questions.plz resolve the isue as soon as possible.

Superb app.. easy and fast service app by IRCTC.. however IRCTC wallet related options are missing.. and connecting trains should also be displayed while planning journey..

Excellent interface. Very helpful. Much much better than previous versions.

Keeps asking for Captca every 5 minutes. Ridiculous idea of security. And Captca images are difficult for seniors.

This app is broken. I can login on IRCTC website using my credentials, the credentials were working on the app as well but not anymore. It just gives an error when I try to login. Probably the issue is with the Android version compatibility of the app. I booked few tickets through the app, but now I can not access the ticket details or cancel any ticket through the app. Hopefully, the developers will fix the issue soon.

Really great. Quick login to book tickets. Fast payment methods are highly appreciated.

Nice app to book train ticket. But the payment options are a little confusing.

You cannot book a ticket on the app as when going for payment, app logs out and ticket booking fails. Kindly do something

Good app. But Reservations should be made only if you get berth as the minimum choice............ this option should be include.

Error message recieved while searching for the trains detail as service not available after the updating the app on 12;16 am 19 oct 2019....what to do

This is one of the good application related Indian railway but booking tatkaal tickets is very difficulties in this app. Tatkal seat Availability not correctly showing also.

App works faster than LT. Not tested at peak hours. Overall, very satisfied

I am not able to plan my journey after selecting source & destination station names I.e. it just goes back to dashboard view of the app.

The app is updated almost everyday. And it didn't open unless you update. Fix this.

The most annoying thing about this app is that without update it does not go ahead. ALL OFFICALS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS PLEASE NOTE, A user may need to book a ticket in emergency. Not everybody may be having enough space at all times. There may be an emergency to book ticket at an odd place. Allow the basic function of booking and canceling of ticket even in the old version

Transection error is the most common problem with this "APP" 270 seats available but with transection that ends with Wating20

App is good but too much advertisements are there which interrupts while booking tickets. Kindly remove the ads atleast.

In the updated version unable to search for trains. Very frequent message no service available.

This app is getting worse nowadays. The main problem is the transaction errors. They show an error in the first payment attempt and when we make the payment in the second attempt thy would debit the money from the account for both attempts..its really inconvenient. Especially when u are dealing with a large number of tickets and a large amount. The refund takes about 7 days, which is even more inconvenient.

Very good but refunding amount of cancelled tickets is very much problematic and is not being received.

Best application to book train tickets.. However login to the site during tatkal booking timings took more time than usual..

Nice app for booking tickets.. Bt it's ticket returning amount is high 120rs per cancellation ticket .. it's to high otherwise everything is Good in this app

This web site is too slow...some times there is login problem..captcha not loaded... transaction cancellation problem etc.

One of the best and easiest app, that makes travel planning and booking easy....

Nice service but needs some improvement as it gets stucked at sharp 11:00am when tatkal quota opens.. right that time many times I loose to book tatkal ticket.

The app is really good.. But the problem is advertisement in between the transaction it really sucks.. Please do something about it..😬

Very nice and easy to use. Day by Day app is improving, appreciated 😀

At the time of booking TATKAL , website response is slow , whereas booking agents on the same website have a good response ,why it is ? Is there any privalge to booking agents on same website.Pl take care of ordinary tax payer citizen.

Hi there! I just booked a ticket, and it asked me to take a pledge to eradicate corruption, which is a great idea I think. But when I opted Yes, it couldn't load the URL. I am using Android 9.0 pie and you need to enable Cleartext permission in your Manifest.xml file to make it work on devices running Android 8.0 and above. Thanks!!

The app is getting worse day by day. When i was trying to book a ticket , the money is debited from the bank but the transaction is getting failed. It happened more than five times in my account . I already complained it to the customer care. After that also i am getting the same issue. So rectify this issue ASAP or else suggest me a solution of not repeating th same issue again

Easy to access,reservation for connecting trains to be introduced.

Suitable for everyone, Very good, but need strong network.

So good. But one thing concession ticket amount is not available.... Do right please...

Always helpful....very useful for those who can't go for the booking at station.

Multiple times it happens that during card payment money is deducted but ticket is not booked. It doesn't even through error. Just returns back to payment screen where you can give another try. There is no guarantee that ticket will be booked successfully from there. For me, even 2nd time same happened. It particularly happens while making payment using card. For 3rd time I made payment using UPI which was successful. Though money is refunded in 4-5 days, it should be fixed urgently.

Absolutely top class. For the last six months during my spiritual tours, it has helped me a lot. Getting tickets made so easy. It enabled me to plan for five/six different destinations as per my convenience just sitting at one place/even while travelling for onward journeys. Ordering food on line is another amazing experience. Great enjoyed on each n every trip.

I can't book the tickets, it's showing add passenger, even if I added it from My account> manage master list, it's showing added in the list but while booking, when clicked on add passenger, it's showing no record found. Just take a look at this and improve, I don't want to feel embarrassed for my country and it's services. I respect my country and you too.

Its very disturbing having advertisements from this app which are not even related to this.And more irritating as any random notifications keeps on coming from this.

Very Nice. Help me a lot in Booking..only some issue occur from server at the time of cappache entry

I have register long back.I tried several times. I am getting that " Invalid user name/ ID. So Itried to register again with same user ID and password word. While filling the mobile number a lable is appearing that "the number is already registered. " In such case registration should be accepted. I tried several times but invain. Why?. My registration should be accepted with revised used ID. So that I marked one star rating. There is no less than that one star.

App crashes while doing payment via PhonePe, I'm facing this issue from a month now. The money is deducted from the bank account and PhonePe also shows successful transaction but this IRCTC app says that the transaction is pending from bank. The app logs me out much often eventhough I haven't signed in anywhere other than this app. Fix it ASAP

Initially the app was good but i dont know what happened suddenly it doesnt accepts payment via sbi online banking.

Easy, Secure, Informative, Transparent, Digital tickets, Access to essential services, Planned journey, Pleasurable Experience! Insured journey, Predictable trvel!

Excellent App....Payment could be made instantaneously? Takes some time?

I am using this app since 2016. I updated my app 2 days before. After login using my pin, it is asking to verify my mobile number & mail id. I have verified my mail id using the OTP received to mail. But I am not receiving OTP to my registered mobile number, instead it is showing error(unable to process request, pls try after some time) Receiving this same error for 2days. kindly resolve this.

Just because for the latest update. I am giving it one star. Whenever I tried to login it is asking to me put Caption also just because it is asking again for Captain. I am extremely disappointed by this update. Caption is mainly for checking if you are not a robot. How many timing you are asking me to verify that I am not a robot. Also previously it was smaller size caption and now the bigger size is like headache and not user friendly.

Last update has made it worse! The problem with the app is that after just few minutes of inactivity, it asks to login again and the captcha option is literally irritating. During the login if you choose the option to login with OTP, it doesn't allow that. You have to kill the process and launch the app again to get access, which is absolutely irritating. Hope the development team takes note and resolve this

The app doesn't feel professional and the UX is worse than before. The captcha system for login is real pain. App often freezes on requests not handled. There are no buttons to close the loading bar, so I have to close the app and again go through the login monstrosity and get flooded with ads. I am just going to remember these ads and make sure that I never use their products in the rest of my life.

The functionality of the app is excellent and navigation is so easy. I feel the logic of seat allotment followed by the software is not upto the mark. I regularly book for janasadabdi (2s, sitting) train. When I book for four seats, giving option for one window seat, the seats alloted by the software would never be near or continuous. The window seat would be one or two rows away from the other seats. I feel this can be easily corrected by applying proper logic in the software.

This app is very volatile. During rush hour or tatkal hour, it only shows sight is not reachable.

Some time this app is asking password with code and some time the codes not appearing so confusions are lot before link to the application whatever we want

Today, when I tried to login, there was a notification mentioning that the app will not support, if I don't upgrade it. Hence I did the same, after which it asks for user id & pw, for which normally forget due to logging through PIN,. So it took some to recover ot through mail. After which one have to set new pw & new PIN, after this long successful process to my surprise the My bookings is showing no history. Hence I suggest , think twice before upgrading the app, if you have yet to travel tkt
