To check Indian Rail timetables, use the official Indian Rail website or the Trains section of the Clear Trip website. Alternatively, Make My Trip offers a list of Indian Rail trains categorized in alphabetical order.
Passengers who know the names or numbers of their trains can enter them into the official Indian Rail website and view the timetables automatically. Those who do not know the code for their chosen destinations can find this information by visiting the Train Codes section of the site. There's also a dedicated page for international travelers, as well as advice on berth and train type availability. The Indian Rail website shows direct trains only, but it does offer information on fares and whether the cost includes meals.
Those who find the Indian Rail website difficult to navigate may wish to use Clear Trip. The train search function available through Clear Trip allows people to search for available routes between their points of departure and destinations, and they can book tickets. Additionally, they can find routes that aren't direct. People who want to view full timetables can use Make My Trip, which allows them to view train availability according to seasons and stops the trains make along the way.
