    1. Hello Bala,
      If you deleted the mail recently then there is a chance that it might be in trash.
      If you have used irctc website on chrome in the past, then try autofill option by double clicking the user ID field. sometimes it works.

      Hope that helped.

      Feel free to post in.

      Have a nice day.

    1. Hello,
      You can recover your User ID using registered mail ID.
      For doing so use first part of the tutorial.
      After recovering User ID try second part for recovering password.

      Hope that helped.
      Feel free to post in any queries.

      Have a nice day.
