What is IRCTC Retiring Room in Railway?

IRCTC Retiring Rooms are rooms used by passengers (having valid PNR number tickets) to rest and freshen up while waiting for their trains. They are available at selected railway stations across India and can be booked through the IRCTC Tourism website or by visiting the railway station’s booking counter.

The facilities provided in the retiring rooms can vary depending on the category of the room and the railway station where it is located. They generally include a bed, a toilet, and sometimes a chair and table. Some rooms may also have a TV, a telephone, and a drinking water facility.

Retiring rooms can be booked for a maximum of 24 hours at a time, with the option to extend the booking for additional hours or days if the room is available and if the extension charges are paid.

These rooms are provided for the convenience of the passengers who are waiting for the next train or for the passengers who have missed their connecting trains, as well as for passengers who are traveling with families and want to take a break in between their journeys.

How to Book IRCTC Retiring Room Online?

Here are the 7 steps to book an IRCTC retiring room online:

  1. Go to the IRCTC Tourism Website and log in to your account. If you do not have an account, please create one by providing your personal information and a valid email address.

For How Long you Can Book IRCTC Retiring Room?

You can book retiring rooms for only 24 hours to 48 hours. More than this you are not allowed to keep occupying the room.

As per my knowledge cutoff(2023), IRCTC allows you to book retiring rooms for a maximum of 24 hours at a time. However, you can extend your booking for additional hours or 2 days max only if the room is available and you are willing to pay the extension charges.

It’s important to note that extension charges are in addition to the regular charges for booking a retiring room, and they vary depending on the type of room and the railway station where it is located. You can check the extension charges on the IRCTC website before making a booking or by contacting the railway station directly.

It’s always recommended to check the IRCTC official website for the most recent and accurate information regarding the booking duration of the retiring room as the rules and regulations may change over time.

And what is difference btw source /destination and source principal/destination principal.

  73. Hi,whenever I try to book a retiring room,it says “Problem while getting PNR details”. This message is displayed as soon as I enter my PNR in the textbox under the Retiring Room Cataegory and click the Search button. Any idea what’s the problem?

    • Hello Sabnam,
      It happens sometimes because of Railway’s poor Retiring Room Booking System.
      As per my knowledge Online booking for retiring room has been stopped for few days but please get it confirmed by IRCTC Customer care first.

      In mean while please share your PNR Number (send it by Live support feature only) I’ll try to book for you.


  74. I want a retiring room in Bangalore city junction railway station but I cannot book it as i am coming in the ernakulam-Bangalore Intercity express which doesn’t. have a can I get a retiring room when I reach Bangalore?

  75. Can a friend of a passenger accompany him/her to the retiring room?? If yes, then does the friend also need to keep the ID proof?

    • Nope not at all.
      Only the passenger is allowed to book the retiring room.
      They make a very clean entry in register with the passenger name, ticket number, train name, pnr number etc. So there is no chance for accompany passenger’s friend to the retiring room if he does not have valid ticket.

      does the friend also need to keep the ID proof?
      If your friend is also having a valid ticket then Yes he will also have to show his ID proof.

  76. Just wanna comment that you have an extremely nice website, I adore the style and design and it actually stands apart. Keep going and help/clear the Indians doubts related to IRCTC.

    • Thanks Anusha for your valuable feedback.
      But still i feel many more features are missing here like PNR Status check, Flight PNR Status, Latest Railway Jobs and many more which all are in my mind. Me and my developers are working on all those features and very soon We’ll avail here for you all.

  77. I have booked a ticket and a retiring room on that PNR no. I had to cancel my ticket, so will the retiring room be cancelled too??

    • Hello Sruthy,
      Nope retiring room will not be cancelled automatically instead you’ll have to cancel it.
      Below are the charges for cancelling the retiring room.
      1) Deduction of 10% on cancellation in advance of 48 hrs of the day of occupation.
      2) Deduction of 50% on cancellation within a period of less than 48 hrs to the day of occupation.
      3) Deduction of 100% on cancellation on the day of occupation.
      Passenger wise cancellation is not allowed , only Room wise cancellation is allowed.
      4) If more than one room/dormitory is booked and cancellation is being done for few room/dormitory then cancellation rule 1, 2 and 3 will be applicable for room/dormitory as per case.
