Indian Railways has a huge network and hundreds of trains are running simultaneously across different routes at any given moment. Train delays are a normal thing. Therefore, if you are traveling to distant places and your next train gets delayed or you have a few hours gap between your trains then you can always book a retiring room.
These retiring rooms are owned and managed by the Indian Railways through IRCTC. Such rooms are necessary and quite useful to the passengers who have to wait for long hours before their train arrives at the station. There are 3 types of retiring rooms which are Single, Double, and Dormitory with AC/Non-AC options.
You can book the IRCTC retiring room for a minimum of 12 hours to a maximum of 48 hours. There are more such restrictions that are applied while booking a retiring room. These restrictions are as follows:
  1. A single passenger can book 1 single or double bedroom or 1 bed in the dormitory.
