STEP 8: Enter Residential Address Details

In this step, you have to fill your correct residential address in the registration form. This step was very crucial when i-tickets were allowed to book on IRCTC website. But from this financial year (2018-2019) i-ticket booking is discontinued. I-tickets booked from the system were sent by courier to the address provided in this form by the user and therefore it was important.

You can even update the address details in your account profile later even after completing the account registration process. In the residential address details you will find the following options:
  • Flat/Door/Block No.
