Speed Up IRCTC Ticket Booking - Tips & Tricks

Booking Train tickets from the IRCTC website specially tatkal tickets is a quite an accomplishment in itself. You can either depend on your luck for being fast enough to open the page and adding all the details or be smart and let the computer do the same for you. 

Every time we book a train ticket, one thing that is common is entering username and password to open up Plan My Travel page. Earlier we could use inbuilt browser features to save the username and password, and let it fill in the details itself but nowadays IRCTC has disabled auto complete feature in the website. So my solution here is a Script that runs every time you open the IRCTC page, adds in your username and password and submits it to take you directly to Plan My Travel page. No complex procedures, nothing.


  • Install this Script named irctc.user.js into your browser. 
  • Chrome users can do it by simply dragging and dropping it to the window and Firefox users can do it by installing a add-on called greasemonkey and then installing the script in greasemonkey by dragging and dropping the script file in the browser, much like in Chrome.
  • Replace the text "Your_username_here" with your IRCTC username and "Your_password_here" with your  IRCTC  password without removing the quotes obviously.
And you are done. The technique is quite simple as you would come to know by opening the script.  Restart the browser and check it for yourself.

I will be working on more tricks to speed up the  booking process and will be posting them as soon as I discover something.
