First of all the right time of 2130 reaching PUNE is 06:50 and it's not 10:00., and yes this train is normally running late by 9-10 Hours.
You would another option 2849, But that train runs only on Thu.

I booked SBC to Jam via DR on 2 occasions.
Firstly, I booked 2 different tickets from SBC to DR (6530) and then DDR to JAM through IRCTC website. The total cost was 2460.00 for 2AC.
Second time - Went to counter and booked from SBC to JAM in the same above trains, But this time I was charged 1876.00
My question is
why its there so much of difference in the ticket price?

Re# 59956-4            Tags   Past Edits
as the direct and long distance tkt u took u will get less amt. in tkt. Meanwhile when u book tkt from PRS then they consider this tkt as single tkt and hence the difference of IRCTC amount is diducted form here.

Even if you book 2 different tickets from SBC to DR (6530) and then DDR to JAM through PRS counter . total charges will be almost around 2460.
but second time you booked a single ticket with onward journey so fare was less as Mr. Harshal said.

SBC-DDR -> 1076 kms - 3AC fare - Rs. 958
DDR-JAM -> 817 kms - 3AC fare - Rs. 811
So total comes to Rs. 1769
But if u book directly from SBC
to JAM using break journey rules the 3AC fare would come down to Rs. 1400 approx
But this can only be done at PRS counters.
A simple example.
Taxis or buses have a minimum rate. If the distance travelled is short the amount per KM will be higher than if u travel long distances.
