Today I spoke to few travelers who I know travel on Indian Rlys.
This is what they had to say:
1. Retiring Rooms/ Beds/ Dormitory beds cannot be booked in advance
2. Rooms/ Beds are always available on the spot on the basis of availability and First Come First Served basis.
3. Do not send Mos, its likely you'll lose yur money.

Hi, I travel very often by the Indian Railways... almost once every week I have wished I could book a room or a bed in advance... but unfortunately I've never been able to do so. Its not with any one specific station, its been the same with every Rly station at every city i've been to, even at cities where I'm so much a frequent traveler that the Hotel guys and the guys at the station know by by face, and we exchange pleasantries, yet I've never been able to book in advance. Cud you provide any links or specific orders of the rlys which mention that such bookings are possible. It will help travelers like me and others alike.

Vacancy positions are generally notified on the Notice Board near Enquiry Counter. Otherwise the vacancy position may be ascertained from Station Manager/Chief Booking Supervisor. Room/Bed will be allotted, if available, after verification of your ticket. You will also be required to pay stipulated charges before the keys of the room are handed over or the bed number in the Dormitory is allotted to you. You can also reserve accommodation in Retiring Room/Dormitory in advance by depositing necessary charges in cash at the station concerned or by sending Money Order in favour of Station Superintendent of the station concerned duly furnishing the train number, date of arrival and ticket/PNR No etc.

Please Note:

Charges for retiring room/Dormitory is
calculated for 24 hours or part thereof. Charges will be collected for the full day irrespective of hours of stay.

a). Single bed can be allotted in the Dormitory, in the Retiring Room both Beds are allotted to the same person.

As far as I know, Rly retiring rooms are available on first come first served basis. They cannot be booked in advance.
