    I have gone through the details of online booking of train general tickets. As far as I know, there is no such provision through online in IRCTC. The bookings explained above is RESERVATION OF SECOND SITTING SEATS in trains. As already explained, the said ticket cannot be used for any other trains other than the booked one and if it is cancelled on any condition, the cancellation rules of reserved tickets will be applicable. In short, it is the reserved ticket and not general open ticket. If it was open general ticket, it could be used for all other trains within the time limit
