The booking of the tickets completely depends on the availability of the seats in a train. Thus, it is one of the essential things, which needs to be considered before starting a journey. Although a single Indian train accommodates thousands of people, still sometimes you may feel need to increase the number of trains. Well, this mainly happens when you find out that the seats in your desired trains are full and you can't go by that train. This further means that your trip to the desired location will be delayed.
To overcome this problem, you must always check for the availability of the seats in the trains by which you want to travel. You can check the seat availability online. This would help you save your time and money. Moreover, you don't need to run to the stations or catch an agent to help you find out the availability of seats in a train. So, you can know the availability and the status of your seat just by sitting right in front of your desktop.
To check the seat availability of a desired train simply go to the availability tab. Once reached there, you need to fill all information like train number, journey date, station codes, class and the quota in the given boxes and finally hit the 'Go' button. Within few second, you will get to know the number of available seats on that train. Apart from this, you can also check for the availability of the seats on the IRCTC website.
