    Different Kinds of tickets in Indian Railways


    Today I am posting some important information regarding tickets of Indian Railways.

    Confirmed (CNF): In this case the passenger gets a full berth for the journey. In case of first AC (1A), the passenger may not get berth details even for confirmed ticket when ticket is issued. This is because the berth allotment for this class is done manually by the TTE on chart preparation.
