Get IRCTC SMS again if IRCTC ticket booking SMS failed

IRCTC ticket booking SMS is still undelivered to your mobile! So you want to make IRCTC SMS resent by IRCTC. All right! Know it how to get IRCTC ticket confirmation SMS again if somehow SMS sent by IRCTC is not received to mobile.

What is IRCTC Ticket Booking Confirmation SMS

After booking online rail ticket from IRCTC website, an IRCTC user gets ticket confirmation SMS from IRCTC. The SMS so sent to mobile number of IRCTC user contains important passenger information such as PNR, train number, date of journey, class type info, source & destination station codes, passenger name, coach number, seat number, fare amount, surcharge amount, etc. Due to IRCTC’s “go green” initiative, these days, IRCTC Ticket SMS may be used as e-ticket while traveling in train. So rail passengers also dont want to take a printout of IRCTC e-ticket instead they want to receive IRCTC ticket confirmation SMS in their mobile phone so that they can show that SMS whenever ticket checking staff in train asks them for the ticket.

Why Resending of IRCTC SMS is Needed

Since IRCTC SMS may also be treated as a replacement of PrintOut of e-Ticket. So people who booked IRCTC e-Ticket require confirmation message to retain in their mobiles. For various reasons resending of IRCTC SMS is needed, few of them are:-
  • Due to mobile network problem, at times, IRCTC SMS is not delivered to the users mobile after the ticket booking process is completed.
  • Since rail traveler can travel in train without e-ticket print out so resending of IRCTC SMS is necessary if the previous sent ticket confirmation SMS by IRCTC is lost any way.
  • Ticket confirmation SMS sent by IRCTC may be, sometimes, undelivered for some technical reasons also.
  • It is also possible that IRCTC users receive the ticket confirmation message after completion of e-ticket booking process by IRCTC but SMS got deleted accidentally or otherwise.
  • Some users want to get IRCTC SMS resent for checking if SMS resending facility is working correctly.
Besides above, there may be some other reasons also for getting IRCTC SMS again.

How to Get IRCTC SMS Again

IRCTC online user, who wants to get IRCTC SMS again for any e-ticket booked, have to follow these easy steps:
  • Log in to your IRCTC online account.
  • Click on plus (+) of “My Transaction” link from the left tab. For this, you will be prompted to enter your IRCTC password once again.
  • Now, click on “Booked History” link.
  • You will see that the recently booked tickets details are displayed in the right tab.

  • Finally click on “Get SMS” button (situated in the most right).
  • You are done now; you will soon get the IRCTC confirmation SMS again to your mobile number.

very nice but there is one problem. You have stated that Finally click on “Get SMS” button (situated in the most left) but actually it is in the most RIGHT. If a person doesn't see the photo below your procedure, he may take some time. Anyway it is a very good effort. Thanx.

Oh yes! You are Right. Actually, the IRCTC Resend SMS button is located at the most Right. I corrected by re-editing my post.

It is very helpful, thanks a lot.
By the way, when I tried to get the SMS then I got a message 'Get SMS facility is available only 3 days before the date of boarding for this ticket'
Hence it means this facility is available only 3 days prior to date of journey.

hiteshgoldeneye said...

But you need to point out that this facility is available only 3 days in advance of data of journey. So no end moment help from this facility

pankaj-tips said...

@ hiteshgoldeneye
the above condition to receive irctc ticket confirmation sms again has been implemented recently by IRCTC. Earlier there was no such rule.

Anonymous said...

even today this facility is of no use because if your ticket gets confirmed then GET SMS option will not be there as shown above.
WHAT TO DO NOW???
