    If you already have an irctcaccount and you have logged in reviously, do clear your cache, history and cookies. Then click on sign up button. I checked through my pc and mobile and its working fine.

    If you have same email ID and mobile number, all you need to do is just search for your first email from IRCTC in which they have quoted your userid. Now you have user id. Go to and click on forget password. Enter your user id and you will receive a password reset email at ur registered email address. Hope it helps. Also, you cannot make new ID with an already registered email and mobile number.

      The same thing is still happening. I am in Australia and have tried for the past 6 days to get the OTP for mobile to complete the registration. I got the OTP for email immediately so have completed that part but can’t use the site until the OTP for mobile is sent.
