Train Cancelled? IRCTC To Credit Entire Amount To Your Bank Account

Passengers must note that when they cancel the tickets, some cancellation charges apply

When your train is cancelled from the start station to the destination, then the passenger name record (PNR) is automatically cancelled and the credit is transferred to the bank account. The refunds are made in the same bank accounts from where the booking has been made. However, the passengers must note that when they cancel the tickets on their own, then some cancellation charges apply. For instance, in case of first AC/ executive class, the cancellation charges are Rs 240.

In case the passenger traveled by the second A/C or first class, the cancellation charges levied by the IRCTC would be Rs 200. In case of third AC/ACC/3A economy, the cancellation charges that IRCTC (Indian Railways Catering And Tourism Corporation) levies amount to Rs 180. However, for the second sleeper class, the IRCTC levies Rs 120 as cancellation charges. When the passenger is cancelling the second class, the cancellation charges are Rs 60.

When the cancellation is done anytime between 48 hours and 12 hours before the scheduled departure of the train, the charges are 25% subject the minimum as mentioned above.

And when the cancellation happens between 12 hours and 4 hours before the scheduled departure of the train, the cancellation charges will be 50% subject to the minimum charge.

There will be no refund after the above prescribed time limit which means if the ticket is cancelled anytime within four hours of the scheduled departure, there would be no refund of the ticket amount. 

In a similar development, NDTV had reported that IRCTC, the e-ticketing arm of Indian Railways, has introduced a new payment mechanism for booking e-tickets, including Tatkal tickets. Now, IRCTC e-wallet users can book rail e-tickets including Tatkal quota tickets through mobile app IRCTC Rail Connect. IRCTC e-wallet is a payment mechanism which enables users to deposit money in advance with IRCTC. This money can be used as a payment option.
