The Indian Railways IRCTC website opens up for train reservations at 8 AM, or 10 AM if you are making a reservation under the tatkal scheme, and the tickets are often booked within minutes. The Magic Autofill tool can improve your chances of getting a train ticket.
On the next page, fill the passenger details and click I'm Feeling Lucky. You'll see a new Magic Autofill button (bookmarklet) that you can drag to the bookmarks toolbar of your browser. Now switch to the Indian Railways website (irctc.com) and click the same Magic button in your bookmarks to fill the reservation form in one click. Speed matters.
If you have never used the Magic Autofill tool before for booking tickets on the IRCTC website, this video demo will help you get started.
