Recently IRCTC has come up with a new idea of online booking of retiring rooms. Online booking of retiring rooms is that if you have confirmed PNR status then you can book a retiring room at stations where you can wait for trains that become late and also put your luggage there.
This facility will let you easily accommodate a place at stations and you will not have to go anywhere for waiting trains and also you will not need to find railway staff who provide retiring rooms and are not available.
