  1. The Ministry of Railways have decided to increase the Advance Reservation Period (ARP) for booking ticket in trains from 60 days to 120 days (excluding the day of journey). Accordingly, the booking in trains from train originating stations will open and remain available for 120 days. Some trains like shatabdi its 60 days. If you want to check advance booking date for booking normal ticket then either you can calculate it by yourself or you can take the help of this simple “ticket date calculator” tool. This tool let you know the date at which the advance ticket booking starts for desired it.
