STEP 2: Read the IRCTC Individual Registration General Information Carefully

It is a very small step but very important to complete the account registration process successfully. If you avoid this then you may not be able to register an account or even may get your registered account deactivated after some time.

picture of irctc individual registration form general message


We have categorized the general information displayed at the beginning of the individual registration form as step number two. In this step, you have to read and understand the following two very important information messages given on the form.
  1. GARBAGE/JUNK VALUES IN PROFILE MAY LEAD TO DEACTIVATION
  2. Please use a valid E-Mail ID and mobile number in registration.

GARBAGE/JUNK VALUES IN PROFILE MAY LEAD TO DEACTIVATION

It is very important to fill the correct information in the account registration form and maintain it in your profile account always, otherwise, IRCTC will deactivate your account when it detects junk and garbage values in your account profile.

IRCTC does it many times to clear the garbage account profile from its system, to prevent unauthorized access to the online ticket booking system so that others can enjoy the service fully and securely.

So, if you are new and just want to test the account registration form, even then don't enter junk values in the various options in the form. Many people do it to check the working of the form and later forgets to update the details.

Hence, please avoid it.

Please use a valid E-Mail ID and mobile number in registration.

It is also very important to enter valid email id and mobile number in the registration form. Because the account activation link is sent to the email id you will provide and an OTP to verify the mobile number will be sent to the mobile number you will provide. If you provide false information or enter the incorrect email id or mobile number then you will not be able to complete the registration as you will not get the activation link or the OTP.

So, please enter your email id and mobile number carefully.

STEP 3: Select IRCTC Login ID/Username and Password

Now in this step, you have to select an IRCTC Login ID/Username and Password. Login id and username are the same things. Both these are mandatory to enter in the form. The username and password you select are very important, let's discuss why these are so important, one by one.


irctc login id and password

Username

It a red star marked option, therefore it is mandatory to enter this detail. Whenever you will access your account after registration, you have to provide username/login id. So select it carefully so that you can remember it always. Once you forget it, then it will be a bit difficult for you to get it back. And also you will not be able to reuse the email id and mobile number linked to your username.

You can enter a username between 3 to 35 characters. And only the letter and numbers are allowed.

If you enter an existing username registered by you or any other user then the system will alert you that the username is already registered and you have to select something else.

And if your username is unique then the system will show a correct check-in green color like the picture shown below.

picture of irctc username option

Password

Now next step is to select a password. It is also a red star marked option, therefore it is also mandatory and you have to enter it. Although you can reset it later, still it is very important to remember the password you entered the first time during account registration so that you can access your account first time.

picture of irctc password option


The password you enter must be a minimum of 8 characters in length and a maximum of 15 characters in length. And the password must contain at least one small and one capital alphabet and one numeric digit.

Following are some good examples of correct passwords:
  • Raju2018
  • Rajeshkumar2018
And following are some example of incorrect passwords:
  • Raj18 - it is less than 8 characters in length.
  • Rajeshkumar@2018 - it is more than 15 characters in length and contains a special character.
  • rajeshkumarhindustani - it doesn't have a capital alphabet, a numeric digit and more than 15 characters in length.

Verify Password

It is also a red star marked option, therefore it is also mandatory and you have to enter it. It is just to check and verify that you know and remember the password that you have entered in the "Password" option. The value you have entered in the "Verify Password" option should match with the value entered in the "Password" option.
picture of confirm password option

STEP 4: Select Security Question To Reset IRCTC Password

Now the next step is to select a security question. It is also a red star marked option and it means it also compulsory. Now you must be thinking that why it is required? It is very important to select a security question and remember it because the same security question is asked to you when you try to reset your password.

If you forgot your security question you selected at the time of account registration then you will not be able to answer it correctly and simultaneously will not be able to reset and change your password.

picture of irctc security question and answer

Security Question

You can choose any one of the following security questions:
  • What is your pet name?
  • What was the name of your first school?
  • Who was your childhood hero?
  • What is your favorite past-time?
  • What is your all-time favorite sports team?
  • What is your father's middle name?
  • What make was your first car or bike?
  • Where did you first meet your spouse?

Whatever security question you select please remember it or write it down somewhere in your main diary.

Answer

Now as obvious if the security question option is mandatory then its answer should be. And hence answer option is also a red star marked option and is compulsory to enter.

Whatever question you select in the security question option, answer it in this option and also remember it as it very important and you will not be able to change it later.

STEP 5: Select Preferred Language For IRCTC Website

It is a small step in the registration process and can help you a lot in your user experience of the website. In this step, you will be asked to select a preferred language. The language you select will be set as your primary language in your profile and in the same language, the content of the IRCTC website will be shown to you.

STEP 6: Enter Basic Personal Details

picture of irctc registration form personal details section


Part one of the personal details section has the following options:
  • Name
  • Middle Name
  • Last Name
  • Gender
  • Date of Birth
  • Occupation
  • Marital Status
Let's understand these options one by one.

Name

It is a red star marked option, therefore, it is compulsory to enter in the registration form. Instead of a complete name, you should only enter your first name in this option.
For example, Rajesh is named if your complete name is Rajesh Kumar Sharma.

Middle Name

It is an optional option. If you have something in your middle name then you can enter it in this field.
For example, Kumar is a middle name if your complete name is Rajesh Kumar Sharma.

Last Name

It is also an optional option. You can enter your last name or sir name in this option.
For example, Sharma is the last name if your complete name is Rajesh Kumar Sharma.

There is also an important message shown on the form which is like this:
"Info! Please provide your exact name as per Aadhaar to avail Aadhaar based benefits on IRCTC eTicketing website."

Gender

It is a red star marked option, therefore, it is compulsory to select it. You don't have to type anything in this option but there three selections out of which you have to select anyone. These selections are:
  • Male
  • Female
  • Transgender
You can select the gender you belong.

Date of Birth

It is also a red star marked option, therefore, it is mandatory to fill it. You will not be allowed to type your date of birth but instead, you will be provided with a calendar after clicking on the option. In the calendar, you can select a date that is your correct date of birth.

Occupation

STEP 7: Enter Other Personal Details

The earlier step was quite simple, now we will learn about the second part of the personal details section which needs your more attention. In this section you find the following options:
  • Country
  • Email
  • ISD-Mobile
  • Nationality
picture of country, email, mobile and nationality options of personal details section

Let's understand this one by one.

Country

It is a red star marked option, therefore, it is a compulsory option. By default "India" is selected, you can select any other country you belong to.

Email

It is also a red star marked option and is a compulsory and very important option. Please enter your correct email address in this option because you will receive an account activation link through email on the same email id which you provide in this option. So type your email very carefully because if you enter incorrect email here then you will not get any second chance to correct it.

ISD-Mobile

It is also a red star marked option and therefore compulsory and very important too. This option has two text boxes. The first text box is to enter the ISD code of your country and it should match with the country you have to select the country option. This option is provided for account registration for international users.

Info! International/NRI users with ISD code other than 91 have to pay Registration fees after successful registration i.e. on the first login. Please note that the registration fee for International/NRI users is Rs. 100 + GST.

If you have selected "India" then ISD code 91 will come automatically and you will not be allowed to edit it. But if you select any other country then you can enter it manually by typing. In the second text box, you have to enter your mobile number.

Enter the ISD code and mobile number correctly because IRCTC will send an OTP on this mobile number to verify the mobile number. All future communication from IRCTC is done on this mobile number only. If you enter an incorrect mobile number then you will not be able to complete the registration process.

Nationality

It is also a red star marked option and therefore compulsory. You can specify your nationality in this option. You have to select a country of which you are a citizen of. This option is different from the country option because you have to enter the mobile number of the country you have selected in the country option.

STEP 8: Enter Residential Address Details

In this step, you have to fill your correct residential address in the registration form. This step was very crucial when i-tickets were allowed to book on the IRCTC website. But from this financial year (2018-2019) i-ticket booking is discontinued. I-tickets booked from the system were sent by courier to the address provided in this form by the user and therefore it was important.
