How to get IRCTC SMS ticket again

Suppose the message received by IRCTC confirming your journey is deleted by mistake or you didn’t receive it because of network congestion, you can again get the message just by logging into your IRCTC account.

Click on ‘Print E-Ticket’ from your personalized login or from ‘My transactions’, you will be prompted to enter your password. You will be redirected to the list of booked tickets.


Click on ‘Get SMS’, you will get the SMS again on the number given while booking the e-ticket. You will get the following message displaying your mobile number and PNR number.



Also, there is an option to enter the mobile number while booking for tickets, if you are booking for tickets on someone’s behalf give their mobile number so that they can receive SMS directly. SMS tickets are only valid if the sender is IRCTC forwarded messages are not considered as valid SMS tickets and will be considered as travelling without ticket.

  3. yes you can. Just login to your IRCTC account and click on ticket you want. But it is not available for the tickets after the journey date or passed date...

  6. I had booked tatkal ticket for my parents and in hurry i forgot to edit the default phone no while booking. I thought by making use of get SMS facility, I can change the mobile no and sms will be sent to my father mobile instead of me.But its not happening. There is no edit option there.

    ReplyDelete
  7. It cant be changed, the number which is present at the time of booking is the last, you cant edit further.
    Better you take print out and send or Fax the ticket if your parents are not there with you...

  9. Hi Shashikant,
    it is not possible to change mobile number once the ticket is being booked. No other option than taking print out of ticket or email of ticket.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hi shashikanth... just save that friend name as irctc (or what ever as it appeared on the original message)in your phone contact, and tell him to forward that message to your mob.. It will show up "irctc"

    1. What if the tc checks the underlying mobile number?
      If you do not carry print of ticket, you are (were) fine Rs50/.
      Now for forwarded sms, you are deemed without ticket.

    2. In that worst case I agree with Arundas. I don't think TC will ever verify your current mobile number. I think valid Id proof of passenger is sufficient along with message in any mobile with the name LM-IRCTCi. :-)

      At the end this is just a text message which conains PNR number and other details.

  12. there seems to be some issue with SMS facility of IRCTC ...didnt get the SMS as well ....also they seem to have put a limit of 5 SMS per ticket and the 'GET SMS' facility can be used only 3 days from day of boarding ...

  13. i have entered wrong number while booking, how can i again get on different no.

  14. is there a need to take signatue on the printout of the ticket from the railway office before boarding?

    ReplyDelete
  15. No, not required on any kind of tickets except given by TC as other form of tickets are computer printed

    ReplyDelete
  16. No signatures/attestations, u have to carry some identity proof in original and if booked in tatkal online carry the same documents whose details u have put in while booking, alongwith photocopy of printout of online ticket.

  17. Get SMS facility is available only 3 days before the date of boarding for this ticket. This message implies that you can get your SMS on 29th, 28th and 27th if your journey commence on 29th i.e., 3 days prior to the journey date. So, if you try to get SMS on 26th for your journey on 29th, you'll get the above error message.

  18. I have not receive sms even at the time of booking can i get it now

  19. Is it not moronic on the part of IRCTC to insist on original sms only when the same can be easily shown as from IRCTC though from someone else?
    Can TC then check if the underlying number is indeed IRCTC's?
    If you do not carry the ticket print, you pay Rs50 but if you do not have SMS or show forwarded SMS, you are deemed to be without ticket.
    Appears to be a case of epitome of moronic rules?

  22. Just put the sim in the phone in which you want to carry the ticket. Send the SMS again. This way you can get the ticket on any phone.

    ReplyDelete
  23. JUST SMS TO 139 : PNR TO 139 WITH THE MOBILE NUMBER YOU HAVE.
    YOU CAN EVEN SEND SMS AFTER TRAIN HAS DEPARTED.

    1. Ask the counter person to add your mobile number while booking ticket, it will be helpful for cancellation as online cancellation is provided for reservation counter tickets also.

    1. Without logging in its not possible to get the ticket. If you can remember coach and seat number then you can travel by showing ID card. At max they can charge fine of Rs. 50 for that.
