Indrail passes are tickets issued by the Indian Railways for foreign tourists and non-resident Indians. The tickets are available for a specific period extending from half a day to 90 days. The passes are valid for one year from the date of issue and must be used before that time period. The pass activates its validity from the date of first journey and ends on the midnight of the last journey.
