No railway refund for non-travelers

Written By Sambasivarao on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 | Wednesday, February 26, 2014

From March 1 2014, passengers who do not undertake journey after booking tickets will not be paid any refund. 

Refund will also not be paid to those who have booked tickets as a part of a group and decide not to travel for any reason. 

The new rules come into effect after the railways modified its scheme on grant of refund from public reservation system (PRS) on cancellation of tickets

However, refund under this system will be granted for reserved and RAC tickets in cases of lower class travel, failure of AC in coach, discontinuation of journey by passengers due to dislocation of train services, accommodation not provided and cancellation of trains. For wait listed tickets, refund will not be granted under this system but will continue to be granted as per existing rules. 

Earlier, if the ticket was presented for cancellation up to two hours after the actual departure of the train irrespective of distance, the cancellation charges were 50% of the fare subject to a minimum of the cancellation charge referred.
