Indian Railways Ticket Cancellation

Indian Railways Ticket Cancellation

Indian Railways permits you to confirm the reservation, PNR status, and seat availability online on the official website of Indian Railways Reservation Enquiry. If you are making certain modifications or looking forward to canceling the ticket, a good percentage ranges from 25 to 50% is being charged by the Indian Railways. For cancellation and refunds after the train’s departure, it is necessary for a person to bring along the ticket to the booking outlet. Tickets purchased online are difficult to be canceled, except for the E-tickets. They are required to present to the booking outlet. Cancellation of I-Tickets can be done under following circumstances.

Cancellation of I-Ticket before train’s departure

You can cancel the I-ticket simply by reaching the computerized reservation outlet all over India and can obtain a canceled ticket. In this case, there will be no refund of cash. Bank charges which are being enforced by the Banks or Payment gateways are not subjected to refund the money in the procedure of canceling the tickets. Also, the service charges are not refundable. Refund of money is possible after deducting the cancellation charges, which is as follows:

  • If reservation against cancellation is canceled by the passenger then around Rs. 20 shall be withheld.
  • If you have canceled a ticket in excess of 24 hours before the train’s departure, then a sum of Rs 70 will be deducted for AC first class passenger, for 2-Tier and 3-Tier AC Rs. 60 shall be withheld.

Cancellation of I-ticket after Train’s Departure

The cancellation charges would be 50 per cent deduction of the ticket cost in the following cases:

  • I-tickets can be canceled within the four hours before the train’s departure.
  • Can be canceled within a time period of 3 hours after the actual departure.

Direct reimbursement

You can also claim for reimbursement to the address mentioned below attaching the Ticket Deposit Receipt. The address is as follows:

General Manager/Operations, Indian Railway Catering & Tourism Corporation, 9th Floor, Bank of Baroda Building, 16 Parliament Street, New Delhi - 110 001

It is then in the hands of IRCTC to process your refund claim by way of Railway Administration. The refund shall be added to the account of the passenger.

Cancellation of I-Ticket in the case of Cancelled train

I-Ticket can be easily canceled up to 72 hours after the planned departure of the train at every computerized reservation outlet.


I have booked 1st AC I-ticket of Goa Samarpak express, but i totally forgot that, i found that ticket after a 2 days of my actual journey, so my question is will be it get cancel now, Actually the cost of ticket is high, thats why if i get any amount , it will be good for me.

its hard to believe that you forgot you had reservation, anyway No, you can't cancel it now. you have to cancel it 2 hour before the chart gets finalized.

sir,i miss my train.because of waiting 5(AC lll) in sangam express (4164) on 25-11-09 so please kindly refund my money.

My ticket back to Mumbai, Lokmanya Tilak Terminus to be exact, is on waiting list 30. The journey is scheduled for the 30th of December. Assuming I want to cancel my ticket, can I do it from Kochi(where I am currently) and then apply for Tatkal? Please do let me know. Thank you.

Wrong way of Indian Railways to loot public money. You all know the recent times (past 2 to 3 years) travelling by train has been increased.. Railways allowing people to book e-tickets (whether available or waitlisted) well in advance... the result more number of people booking e-tickets but in real time when the status of WL e-tickets remain WL at journey time they are not valid and passanger have no right to travel with that & no other alternative left as railways are making money by selling Tatkal tickets with out giving preference to wait listed passangers. The refund process of waitlisted e-tickets after auto cancellation by railways is funny. They charge 30rs for cancellation (other charges by credit cards/net banking also not reimbursed on cancelled tickets) so Out & Out Rs.2000/- to Rs.3000/- profit alone on waitlisted e-tickets auto cancellation for each train... now just calculate on an average how much indian railways earning per day

I alongwith my family travelled from Delhi to Gaya Jn in Rajdhani ACII on 13 Dec 2009. I do not recollect the whether it was Kolkata/ Sealdah / or Bhuvneshwar Rajdhani. Exact train name or numberis not known. The ticket was obtained by exchanging free warrant at reservation counter at Kota Railway station reservation counter. I know the number of the free warrant and also the date of journey as mentioned above. Now that ticket has been placed under audit objection. To settle the audit objection I need to have a duplicate ticket of the journey which I performed nearly seven months ago. How can I get a duplicate copy of the ticket? Or how can I get the details like PNR No and number of passangers listed in that ticket?

what is the procedure to cancel a confirmed I-ticket if out of 2 passengers one needs to cancel the travel and another needs to travel on the same ticket?

Is it an online ticket ? anyway you need to go nearest ticket counter of Indian railways and ask them to cancel the seat of one passenger. I think a new PNR will be generated of your new ticket, though you will still have one seat booked on your name.
