NRI or Foreign Tourist Quota (FTQ and NRI QUOTA)
The Foreign Tourist Quota is a small set of seats on certain trains kept aside for foreigners (and NRIs) travelling in India on a tourist visa. Seeing that the bulk of foreign tourists visiting India have no idea how early train tickets can sell out, this quota can be a godsend. It is however rather bureaucratic to get a ticket under this quota, and unless you get it right, you're likely to waste a lot of time at a railway reservation office, to come back empty-handed. It is also worth reading this thread - and its relevant updates - about the Foreign Tourist Quota on the Indiamike forum.
Let me summarise the main points of this quota:
♣ Foreign tourists don't have to buy tickets under this quota - they can book through the general, tatkal and ladies quotas (if they're ladies!) as well. However, most of the regular quotas tend to get booked out very early (even two months in advance on some popular routes!) and hence the Foreign Tourist Quota (FTQ AND NRI QUOTA) can often allow a tourist to get seats on trains at relatively short notice.
♣ There is no extra charge for tickets issued under this quota. You pay the same amount an Indian would pay for the journey.
♣ Not all trains have a Foreign Tourist Quota.
♣ FTQ AND NRI QUOTA cannot be booked online.
♣ FTQ AND NRI QUOTA cannot be booked at just any station or reservation office either. Only certain important stations, tourist bureaux and reservation offices have the authority to sell tickets under the FTQ AND NRI QUOTA. The list is mentioned at the end of the page.
♣ You can pay for FTQ AND NRI QUOTA tickets in dollars. If you pay in rupees, you might need to show proof that you've exchanged foreign currency - an exchange certificate or ATM receipt should do. Not too many counters insist on this though.
♣ You need to carry the passports of all travellers in original to the reservation counter along with photocopies of the visa and address pages.
