It seems like you're required to have an Indian identity card or something. Is it possible, if you don't have one, or must you use another site?

  • @JohnathanReez - and others - you realise 3 of the 4 answers on that question simply link to the site I said isn't usable?

  • Anybody can register but you need an Indian mobile number to receive the verification code. Foreign credit cards are now accepted as pointed in this answer. To register using your mobile number please see this link.

  • @RedBaron there is a way to do it without a local number, as I went there in June. I'' try and add an answer when I get more time.

Yes you can. When registering, IRCTC will ask your nationality and you can provide the nationality accordingly. But Indian Railway have a rule that when travelling on reserved tickets, you must hold the original copy of any ID proof along with you.
