    Hi all, my name is Sharni, and I will be going to India with my boyfriend in mid-May. We plan to visit a number of destinations in India, traveling by either car or train.

    We have doubts about the proper way or a genuine site from where we can book our railway ticket online.

    It would be very helpful if someone could let us know how to book railway ticket online.
