        Dear Sir,

        There is a massive cut in the refund amount. The charges paid to IRCTC was Rs. 4225/- but the refund amount was only Rs. 3465 / – . Total deducted amount is Rs. 760/- but as per rule it must be Rs. 180 per passenger hence Rs. 720 / – . So please explain us that what is the rest money. Please note that I have not included the bank charges for the transaction .
        Why is there such a big difference in the refund amount?
        Please check the following PNR and explain me that why there is difference between the IRCTC cancellation rules and actual facts.

      For AC tier tickets, if gets cancelled in waiting list then a Flat Rs. 65 should be deducted.
      IRCTC service charge and Bank transaction charges are not included in Total Fare.

    • In case of reason “Passenger Not Travelled” No amount will be refunded.

      You should have filed TDR only after train left your boarding station and before 3 hours from departure of the train from your station.

      Reason should have given as “Seat was not cleaned so passenger not travelled” in this case you could have got 50% refund amount only if it is not a Tatkal eTicket.

  253. Ghufran Khan says:

    Dear Sir/Madam

    My query is regarding wrong claculation of cancellation charger by IRCTS site.

    I have booked a ticket for 25.Jun.2016 – PNR no. 4120435759, From : SC To: NK, Class: Sleeper Class, Quota : General. This was for 2 passengers of which one is Senior Citizen & the booking fare was Rs. 595.00.

    I Canceled this ticket on 14.Jun.2016 (12 days before journy) and have correctly selected both the passengers, for this the IRCTC site has canceled the ticket with generated refund of Rs. 355.0 only.
    This is alomost 57% of the original cost.

    What shoudl I do now ? What is the procedure to get the remianing refund amount ?
    I am a regular user this is the first time such a issue has happend.
    I am now feeling that IRCTC misfunctionaing is cheating normal public.

    I have very high hope that will get a reply to my query please help.

    • Dear Ghufran,
      Its correct here are the details:

      Total Fare you paid = Rs. 595
      Cancellation charges per passenger is Rs.120 (as mentioned in above post for SL)
      For Two passenger = 120*2 = Rs. 240 as Cancellation charges

      Refunded amount = 595-240 = Rs. 355

      Which is refunded to you.

  261. rajesh sharma says:

    I’ve waitlist ticket (WL 15, 16) for 2 adults and 1 child (5yrs) and I’ve also booked tatkal for same train and day, but tatkal ticket is also waiting 1 & 2. Now how I can, I know which one get confirmed so I can cancel the other. train is 22647 / KRBA TVC EXPRES, general ticket from Bilaspur to MAS and boarding durg.
    tatkal is from Durg to MAS.
    all ticket are 3AC

    Pls. suggest……

    • No body can predict the PNR status of your tickets correctly.
      You can do two things:
      1) Wait till tomorrow by afternoon if Tatkal gets confirmed then cancel other waiting listed tickets.

      2)If other tickets gets confirmed then cancel Tatakl ticket (it will cost 65 Rs. per passenger as cancellation charge).

      Please note:

      – If all the tickets are e-Ticket and if it remains in waiting list after chart preparation then it will become Invalid because e-tickets in waiting list gets cancelled automatically.

      • rajesh sharma says:

        what if both general and tatkal get confirm at same time, is there any rule as being a same traveler and having both wait list tickets didn’t get penalty due to non availability of seats.


        • If both gets confirmed then cancel normal tickets you will get some amount refund (only if you cancel before 4 hours then 50% will be refunded) because confirmed tatkal ticket can not be cancelled.

          There is no such rule till today.

  262. Sanjaya Patra says:

    is there any rule of Cancelling Tatkal Ticket If yes what is the amount will be refund and how many days.

    • If tatkal ticket is in waiting list then 65 rs will be deducted as cancellation charge and remaining amount will be refunded back into your account.
      If you have confirmed tatkal ticket and you go for cancellation then NO amount will be refunded.

  263. Hi sir,

    Could you do something like that e.g. class wise and based on hours prior to cancellation – that would give us a better idea.
    Thanks once again for the information.

  294. S.GOPIKRISHNAN says:

    If the tickets are partially cancelled, whether a new print out of the tickets is required to be taken or the old one before cancellation is valid.

    • – If it is eTicket – Old ticket is valid one you can carry that
      – If it is Counter ticket then you will have to go to the railway station and fill the cancellation form for partially cancellation and they will provide you New ticket. In this case OLD ticket + NEW ticket both will be valid as PNR will be same.
      But in case if they provide you new ticket with new PNR number on it then New ticket will only be considered as Valid one.

  295. my RAC 6 …train departure time – 10 30 pm today….if i cancel now what will be the cancellation charges?
    As my ticket is in RAC will it automatically be cancel when chart is prepared?

    • 1. For cancellation of RAC/Waitlisted tickets if ticket is presented
      for cancellation upto 3 hours of the actual departure
      of the train irrespective of distance, full refund of fare will be
      given, after deducting the clerk age charge per passenger. Clerk age charges are mentioned in above post please refer.

      2. No, RAC tickets will not be cancelled automatically. Passengers having ticket in RAC status are considered having valid tickets. This is applicable to both tickets booked online (e-ticket) and tickets booked over the counter (PRS ticket). They are allowed to travel in train in such cases.

  296. sandeep saha says:

How will IR recover the extra Rs.35 from the passenger ?


  300. A BHARGHAV KUMAR says:

  301. S.GOPIKRISHNAN says:

    I have made a partial cancellation of my 3rd AC sleeper ticket. Out of Total fare of Rs.1,470/- for 3 person there was a deduction of Rs.570/- I cancelled on March 9th and the travel is only
    on 3rd April 16.

    Will there be Rs.190/- deduction per passenger on cancellation?

  302. Arka Ghosh says:

    I have booked Ticket in Tatkal Quota via internet my PNR Status is CKWL 62,Which is less likely to be confirmed.
    How long should i wait before canceling it?
    Is there chance for the confirmation?
    How much will refunded if cancellation is being done?

    • 1. You can wait until final chart preparation time because eTicket will automatically be cancelled if it is in Waiting list.

      2. The first thing is Confirmation is totally depends on the Class of the ticket. If you have booked AC ticket in tatkal quota then i’d say 99% it will not be confirmed.

      3. Cancellation charges are mentioned in above post respective to the class of the ticket. Please go through it once

    • Arka Ghosh says:

      Thank You Ankit!
      Its really amazing that you are taking out your personal time for people who are perplexed about the schemes…

    • No refund on Tatkal Ticket cancellation.
      But the tips is here:
      If you really dont want to travel then do not cancel ticket now because any how you are not going to get any refund.
      1. Lets wait for train to come to your railway station. If train is late more than 30 minutes then immediately file tdr with reason “Train is Late” in this case you will get refund (70-100%)

      2. Let train come to your station and go. After one hour from train departed, file the TDR with reason “Train Coach Seat Was Damaged” in this case if it gets approved then you might get refund.

    • Hello Akshay,

      If eTicket:
      You can wait until chart is prepared. After chart preparation if your ticket is still in waiting list then it will be cancelled automatically.

      If Counter ticket:
      Cancel it after chart preparation. But it will not be cancelled automatically, you need to go to the railways station for cancellation.

      A flat Rs. 60/Per person amount as cancellation of waiting list ticket will charged.

      • What if the WL tickets iis comnfirmed SL class during chart preparation and I want to cancel it .. How much refund oi will get

        • Between 48 hours and 12 hours before leave time, 25% of the total fare is deducted
          Between 12 hours and 4 hours before train departure 50% of the total fare is deducted.
          If less than 4 hours is remaining in train departure and chart is prepared, then NO REFUND is given on cancellation of confirmed tickets.

          In your case NO Refund if your boarding station is same as train source station and chart is prepared before 4 hours from train departure time from source station.

    • Yes it is possible.. If you have e-Ticket then select the person you want to cancel if it is counter ticket then go to the railway station and fill the form.



  335. What will be the cancellation charges for 5 confirmed 3rd AC tickets (booked on 5th Jan’16 for 4th May’16 Journey)of Rs.10020.80/- from Ahmedabad to Howrah ?

  336. Ticket cancellation charges in irctc 2016 has been increased too much and its affecting many middle class people having AC ticket and want to cancel it.

    IRCTC should really thinks about e ticket cancellation charges.

    • Narendra Arora says:

      Its true Ankit. Government of India does not allow private players to enter in railways and then fleeces its nationals, in particular middle and lower middle class, by arbitrary increase in fare/charges. A middle class Indian national does not have any alternate for long distances hence have no escape from this arbitrariness. Why Indian Railways cannot be booked under “The Monopolies and Restrictive Trade Practices Act, 1969”?

      • With all due respect, charges of trains is still 10 times cheaper than buses.So why complaining if they are increasing the price in order to provide better facilities. Please get rid of the mentality of freebies. It will hurt us in long run.

        • Agreed! But the comfort ness what you will get in AC buses you can never get in Trains.
          The food quality is still worst in trains with high price.

          What you say?
