Following is the summary of rules related with with advance period of Train Ticket Reservation.

  • You can reserve your ticket 120 days in advance, excluding the date of journey at the train originating station. At intermediate stations where the train arrives the following day, reservation can be done 121 days in advance. In the case of some intercity day express trains, the advance reservation period is less. Special Trains are planned by Railways where ARP  (Advance Reservation Period) varies from 10 to 60 days. Such Trains may have a higher fare than normal Trains.
  • The reservation status will be clearly indicated in your ticket. If your ticket is confirmed, your coach and berth numbers will be mentioned on your ticket in all classes other than First Class and AC First Class. For these, the word “Confirmed”, will be printed alongside the class of travel. If your ticket is in RAC (Reservation Against Cancellation)/ Waitlisted status, the same will be mentioned on the ticket.
