ARP = advance reservation period

I guess it's still too soon to book a ride for that date on that train.

You can also send your queries to IRCTC Contact for I-tickets/e-tickets –

the meaning of The Dates given were outside ARP with respect to Indian railways / IRCTC is as follows.

ARP stands for Advance Reservation Period. If you try to book the rail tickets outside the advance reservation period dates, you will get this message. Not all train tickets bookings start from 120 days in advance. The booking of short distance Day trains like Shatabdi express trains , Kalka Shimla toy train etc opens only 30 days in advance
