Keep on trying.. best time is after 8:00 pm or early in the morning.

And I had some problem in making payment through credit card... actually I could not make payment as it kept asking for my PIN no that I dont know.

AW if you have time then you can book i-ticket, they generally deliver the ticket in one or two days.

Finally I was able to book the I-tickets.Tickets will be delivered to homw instead of e-tickets.I have seen clashes between ticket collector and people who had etickets in the past.so I went for i-tickets.
Site is dead slow.Websites of many banks were equally slow.
Web technologies are going to stay here.

Railway server initially was accessed by say 1 lakh people(employee of rly) and now it is being suddenly accessed by 10 lakh people.

I think it would take some time to Rly to make it scalable to 20 lakh user.
