can't open irctc account.

Hi, i am not able to access my irctc account from last month. i enter my correct user name & password.
but i dont know what the problem is. i receive one mail from irctc---
Dear Customer,

You had requested for refund of e-ticket with PNR No.4417830563 , which was booked using user-id "kedardare ". It is informed that the refund claim has been repudiated by Railways stating that the passenger has already travelled and has still claimed refund.

In view of the wrong claim of refund, the above user ID has been temporarily deactivated.

For further assistance, you may contact [email protected]


I reply the mail..but still not get any response from there..
please let me suggest for the problem.

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Kedar Dare.

Respected Sir/Mam,
I claimed for my refund through IRCTC website but they didn't refunded me back.
Main thing is that they blocked my account now I am not able to access my account.
For tomorrow & for next month also I already booked 5 tickets.If I am not able to manage my travel.Three of 5 tickets are wait listed including tomorrows tickets.I am not able to cancel that tickets.
There isn't any help desk for IRCTC.We have to communicate through the mails.

So will you please take my complaint & do the needful.

Regards.

repeated booking failures

I have been trying for booking a ticket for the journey date 30/03/11 since from 2 days 14 march and 15 march. Also the tickets are available for the booking date.
Everytime, the money is collected and there wont be any response. i have to wait for long time (nearly 30min) to get the response. and after that it just showed session expired.

This happend for not single time. It happened for 3 times, every time money got debited from my bank acc, Although i should wait for refund again.

The site performance is degraded. These transactions are done not even at peak time (morning 8am).

Tatkal Ticket Cheating

Hi.,
Not Sure if anyone is facing this issue., When you try to book a ticket (anyplace,any train), it shows Crazy waiting lists even 4 weeks before the travel date. I am sure why.,A train which goes daily having capacity more than 700 seats..
Okay but still Tatkal is option., so when i try to book Tatkal tickets., I think it open 8AM 2 days in advance of journey date., so when we check at 8 AM, www.irctc.co.in website is down says Service Unavailable., so i keep trying finally in 5 mints i connect and shocked to see all 200 odd Tatkal Seats sold within 5 mints, HOW CAN THAT BE POSSIBLE..., and this is not first time or second time,this happened to me many many many times., as i keep travel between Chennai and Bangalore, or Bangalore and hyderabad.,
I think Indian Railways is running some kind of Scam which public is not aware of.,
How can 200 Seats get over in 5 mints cannot understand, once is okay, it happens everyday.,
Please Check this & take Action on Indian Railways, Its supposed to be Govt Sector and Public Transport.., Hope this is Cleared ASAP.,
Regards,
Unhappy Citizen with Indian Railways Scams on Tickets.,

Unable to perform online booking for Tatkal

I have been trying to book Tatkal online since about a week. My internet speed is 3 MBPS. However when I access the site before 8 am (around 7:59 am) the site is very fast. But at around 8 am when I try the site goes out of order and gives me a "Service Unavailable" error. I personally feel that the consumers are purposefully manipulated so that the travel agents get the advantage. Otherwise how is that the site works perfectly well at 7:79 am but goes out of order at 8am? I will appreciate if you can kindly take actions so that the consumers can obtain justice

Tatkal Booking

I have been trying to book tickets from Bangalore to Chennai through IRCTC site on 23.12.10 and 24.12.10. Though the site says that booking is available from 8.00 am, it is impossible to gain entry before 8.45am. By that time, all the tickets available through Tatkal are already booked and only wait listed seats are available. I have faced similar situations before also. One would like to know as to how these seats are booked except with the connivance of railway officials especially in a computerised environment. The railway minister it seems is oblivious to reality and has no time for such trivials. I hope she gets elected to the WB assemble asap and vacates the seat in favour of some efficient minister. Is is possible to get an answer through this site?

not avaiable during 08.00 to 08.30

Attn to GREAT INDIA RAILWAYS
The IRCTC web site designed for online ticket booking is the worst unreliable site . Many miracles will happen like
A) amount will be deducted and you will not get ticket.
B) When u want to book tatakl ticket in the required time between 08:00 to 08:30 the site will tell service unavailble.
C) Some special train list it will not show in the list

Many online websites are almost 100 % avaialble and meeting the requirements of custumers. But IR treats consumers as beggers. I am eagerly waiting for the days of private trains entry in future the days to cut off the wings of IR like BSNL.

What else we can do apart for praying the god. !!!

Site of No Use; Never gets connected

This Site is of no use; then what's the use of providing the site-services to the Public.
Let them remove it.
Till last year it was OK;
Now the Site has become more of an AGENT-site rather than public.

whenever you log-in it never goes inside. (always displays msg "This page cannot be displayed")Then what's the use to common public. Remove it totally.

Let them make it totally an "AGENT-site", no public should be given access.

of late the site has gone down from better to WORST.

Will the authorities pls. look into & decide whether to make it public or Agent.

Thanks,
Padmanaban

connecting to PHISHING SITE while booking ticket from IRCTC. High priority

Hi,

I tried booking ticket through irctc official website.

When I select "SBI Debit card" as mode of payment, this is re-directing to the site "https://securepg.fssnet.co.in/pgway/gateway/payment/payment.jsp?PaymentID=################"

This site is asking for PIN number along with all other information.

Please treat this as high priority issue and save SBI customers from this trap.

TDR Money not refunded

hi,

i have booked a tkt(PNR no4309749139) to travel from Krishnarajapuram to Tenali(TEL) on 24th sep 2009 and i did no travel, so i filed a tdr on 29th sep 2009(transaction id:0135439016) and i have been pursuing this for almost a year and the money is not yet refunded. i have registered complaints on the forum as well as with irctc with no use.

I am having a feeling that the system of complaints(both consumer forum as well as irctc) is not working,i am not concerned of the money i am supposed to get, what i am concerned is irctc is providing this feature of tdr but i dont get the meaning of putting such a feature and the complaints not getting solved.

i feel the railways has to find a better way of noting which of the passengers have traveled and who have not traveled so that any corruption at the TC level can be avoided.
