The first is to book the ticket from the reservation counter or you can also book it online sitting at home. But many times the ticket is not confirmed and the passenger does not get the confirmation at the last minute. In such a situation, the person remains trapped. Most people consider ‘tatkal’ tickets to be the only option for this. Although very few people will be aware that you can travel by train after buying a ticket from the platform.
