Has anyone, anywhere in the world been emailed their SMS OTP in the last few months so that they can register to purchase train tickets? I have been waiting three months and I know someone else who has been waiting six weeks. My email has been verified but no OTP. Several phone calls have not changed anything.

Hi,

Quick question on applying for a visa. I am British so applying from here in the UK.

Thanks

Paul

However, as I've been reading, India its not like this. Trains are always overbooked and I've to buy tickets several days (weeks) in advance…
