I Forgot My IRCTC Rail Connect App Username and Password

IRCTC Rail Connect is a very useful App from Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation which helps to book Indian Railway tickets hassle-free. I had installed this App on my old Android phone which was damaged last week. After installing it on my new Smartphone, I faced a common problem; I do not remember the login details. While clicking on the forgot password option on IRCTC Rail Connect App, I soon realized that I don't remember the username too. Default IRCTC Rail Connect login credentials recovery procedure needs the username, and there is no way to retrieve the lost username.

This article explains all possible solutions to regain access to the IRCTC Rail Connect Android App to book train tickets online.

IRCTC Rail Connect Online Train Ticket Booking App Password Recovery

You can reset IRCTC Rail Connect App login password If you remember the username you had created while registering. All you have to do is to click on the Forgot Password link and enter the username while prompted.

You will receive an OTP on the registered mobile number. After verifying the OTP sent to your registered mobile number, you will be able to set a new password.

After you regain the access to the Indian Railway online Train Ticket booking App by resetting the old password, the next step is to create a PIN number.

IRCTC Rail connect prompts you to create a 4 digit PIN number for future login on the current handset. You can log in to the Indian Railway online Ticket booking facility on your mobile phone using this PIN number.

If you do not have the email from IRCTC having the user ID, you need to check your phone. IRCTC sends user id and password to the registered mobile number.

If you do not have both email and SMS, you need to register your complaint to recover the lost IRCTC user id by sending a request to the following email address.
