    Check in booked tickets history. The ticket will be there since there is a payment confirmation.

    No. It will not be there. Tickets will be booked only if you land on the page where they have displayed seat nos.

    I have faced this situation many times. every time money got refunded.

    You can definitely check in the booked history. If it is not there sent a mail to IRCT with your log in ID and give them the details, the money will be refunded within 4-5 days.

    This is very common occurrence with IRCTC and they do this thousands of time everyday.

    VIP, i travel a lot and unfortunately face this problem multiple times. Till IRCTC does not upgrade it's systems, in line with the traffic we will continue to have this problem.

    An all too common problem...IRCTC website sucks big time & it's only made for the convenience of agents who book tickets in bulk.
    I remember from last year where I tried for 1 whole week to book a tatkal ticket (to Kolkata) thru the website & each time was unsuccessful.. site crash.. the above error.. sometimes it would error out while booking the seats ... :frusty:
    Finally my Dad got frustrated & left early one morning for the rly. reservation counter, stood in line for a few hrs & finally got a ticket :hurray:
    I haven't bothered to check ever since.

    The last time I heard, google had over 1,00,000 distributed servers and databases. Try IRCTC now.

    Most of the IT related projects are handed over to companies whose name does not even figure in the top 20K IT companies. And it's not that GoI does not pay them. I'm sure they are paid well, but if a closer scrutiny is done, I guess all those companies would be found to have political connections, say for e.g. a high school student (son of a politico) coding some HTML, JSP with his limited knowledge without accounting memory leak, null pointers etc. Basically work being done by unprofessionals. Even if some of those companies do exist, it would suffice to say that they exist due to mercy and corruption while following the tender process.

    If IRCTC would have been floated as a global tender, companies such as IBM, Accenture, Deloitte and many more would have been in the fray, and as such would have designed a site worth a billion plus Indians.
