Not only irctc but other important service like passport office was down on 10th Nov. We took leave for appointment later part of the day but the servers were down. Why didn't passport office send us SMS so that we could avoided travelling. they didn't. We wasted our time and appointments are given at the end of month. Ideally the appointment for 10th Nov should not be counted but they have counted it for no faults of ours.
