There are generally 6 types of accommodation class in Indian Railways. They are:

First Class Air Conditioned (1AC)1AC is found only on the most popular inter-state train routes. The cost of this is around double that of 2AC.

Two Tier Air Conditioned Class (2AC)
It has only four beds in each compartment.

Three Tier Air Conditioned Class (3AC)The carriages in 3AC are laid out in the same manner as in sleeper class. However, the windows are covered with tinted glass that’s unable to be opened, and air-conditioning keeps the carriages cool.

Air Conditioned Chair Car (CC)
These are commonly found on shorter distance trains between major cities. Their seat recline, has an overhead space for luggage and is comfortable to travel on day trips.

Sleeper Class (SL)Carriages are divided into open-plan compartments with six beds. The beds are stacked vertically in three tiers on either side of the compartments.

Second Class (2S)
There is sitting or standing space only, and any spare floor space is occupied by those willing to sleep on it. Most seats are simply wooden benches, although some trains do have padded benches the same as what are found in sleeper class.

For a better experience, book your tickets with ixigo trains and choose your accommodation class as per your choice.
