Once you have successfully booked your train tickets through the IRCTC website, it is important to know how to download and access them. In this article, we will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to easily download your IRCTC tickets.

Logging into your IRCTC Account

To begin the process of downloading your IRCTC ticket, the first step is to log into your account. Open a web browser and visit the official IRCTC website. Enter your username and password in the provided fields and click on the “Login” button.

Accessing Your Booked Tickets

Once you are logged into your account, you will be directed to the “My Account” page. Look for the “My Transactions” section and click on “Booked Ticket History.” This will take you to a page where you can view all of your booked tickets.

Choosing Your Desired Ticket

On the “Booked Ticket History” page, you will see a list of all the tickets you have booked in chronological order. Locate the ticket that you want to download and click on it. This will open up a detailed view of your ticket.

In this detailed view, you will find information such as your journey details, passenger names, train number, seat numbers, and other relevant details. Take a moment to review this information before proceeding with downloading.

Downloading Your IRCTC Ticket

Once you have reviewed all of the details on your ticket, scroll down until you find an option that says “Print ERS/VRM.” ERS stands for Electronic Reservation Slip while VRM stands for Virtual Reservation Message. These are the two formats in which you can download your IRCTC ticket.

Click on either “Print ERS” or “Print VRM” based on your preference. This will open a new window where your ticket will be displayed in PDF format. From here, you can choose to either save the PDF file directly to your device or print it out for physical access.
