How can I change my name on an online-booked IRCTC railway ticket?


first of all any online train booked ticket is not transferable.This has been made to prevent possible misuse of facility by the agents and brokers.

However, if reasonable case should arise, following provisions has been made:

(both for online/counter and offline/counter ticket)

Chief Reservation Supervisor of important stations are authorized by Railway Administration to permit the change of name of a passenger having a seat or berth reserved in his name in the following circumstances namely :

(a) Where the passenger is a Government Servant, proceeding on duty and appropriate authority, makes a request in writing 24 hours before the scheduled departure of trains
