Posted on: 07-11-2015 , 11:08:AM | DY365 Bureau

Nov 7, 2015- The Indian Railways is undergoing major reforms. After introduction of the e-catering services, the railways have now introduced fresh rules for cancellation of tickets. According to this, passengers having confirmed tickets will not get any refunds if they don't cancel four hours before the departure of the train. The railways have also doubled the cancellation charges in the new rules which will come into force from November 12.
The new rules specify that between 12 hours and 4 hours before the scheduled departure of the train, cancellation fee will be 50 percent of the fare. Also, between 48 hours and 12 hours before the scheduled departure of the train, cancellation fee will be 25 percent of the fare. Earlier between 48 hours and 6 hours before the scheduled departure of the train, the cancellation fee was 25 percent of the fare.
The change in refund rules is aimed at helping genuine passengers get confirmed tickets and check the tout menace in ticketing.
The railways have also doubled the cancellation charges. The cancellation fee for AC3 confirmed ticket 48 hours before the scheduled departure of the train would be Rs 180 as against Rs 90 earlier, while for AC-II it would be Rs 200 in place of Rs 100.
The cancellation fee of second sleeper class confirmed tickets would be Rs 120 instead of earlier Rs 60 while the charges for second class confirmed ticket will be increased to Rs 60 from the present Rs 30.
