IRCTC Executive Lounge Review & Contact Details

IRCTC Executive Lounge Entrance  

“यात्रिगन  कृपया ध्यान दे, ट्रेन नंबर 12502, कानपुर – इलाहाबाद के रास्ते गुवाहाटी को जाने  वाली, पूर्वोत्तर संपर्क क्रांति एक्सप्रेस अपने निर्धारित समय से 6 घंटे की देरी से जाएगी। असुविधा के लिए खेद है”

Indian railway did it again, my train Poorvottar Sapt Kranti 12502 to Allahabad was delayed around 7 hours, all of a sudden my 11:45 pm train was reschedule at 6:30 am. It was really difficult to wait 7 hours in Delhi’s cold night and I was in two minds if I should cancel the journey and go back home or go to the budget traveller’s paradise next door Paharganj, take a hotel, catch some rest and take the train in the morning. Of course my love for Sangam (Allahabad) did not let me scrap the journey and I decided for the second option and started to move towards Pahargang. All of a sudden I saw an advertisement board of IRCTC executive lounge on platform 1 and to save myself from Hustle of Pahargang I decided to give them a call. The IRCTC lounge is located on platform 16 (Ajmeri Gate side) just next to clock room and opposite to tourism information Centre (Rail Office.

IRCTC Executive Lounge – Interiors

Once I entered inside it’s a little Disney land with well trained and modern staff (yes surprise, the staff was fluent in English & well groomed) and very clean. They charged around 300 rupees for first 3 hours and 125 rupees per hour after that, which includes onetime Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner or snacks. They took my Address and other information details at the reception and clicked my picture through webcam (I said modern). After taking 50 rupees as a security deposit (refundable) I was given a smart card to enter the lounge and other services. Was impressed with the interiors and services they offered and as I think not so many people know about them yet so it was mostly empty that time. They had a small shop packed with chocolates, biscuits chips and other refreshments (Paid) and if I remember correctly they have a mini book store as well. Overall very much pleased with the services they offered and highly recommend to everyone who is suffering from the laziness of Indian Railways
