The TTE will start checking the tickets starting from santragachi station.. So if you are not on the train by Kharagpur, your ticket will stand cancelled and your seat will be given to an WL passenger.
Please plan accordingly.

You Can Book The Tickets But Its Not Sure That You'll Get The 2 Passenger Cabin
While Railways Try To Allot Seats As Per Passengers Booked On 1 Ticket
Try Booking Tickets In 12235 Or 12435 For Better Chances
Wish You All The BEST !

Kurseong-Darjeeling train ride costs Rs.30 (~ $0.50) for Second seating and Rs.185(~ $3.2) for First Class
isnt it too cheap for a heritage train, a journey worth remembering?

I have a e-ticket with 4 passengers for 2mro's train whose chart has been prepared.
Passenger 1 and 2 have a cnfrmd ticket while passenger 3 & 4 have a WL ticket in 3A class. Somehow there is no RAC.
now since it is an e-ticket will the tickets of passenger 3 and 4 get cancelled automatically or can they travel along with
passenger 1 and 2?
plz help fast...

they can travel with confirmed passengers and will be treated as wl passengers and provided berths in case any passenger does not turn up...also the wl pax will not cancel automatically...if you want,you can cancel the entire ticket and get full refunds for all passengers...

Partially wait listed tickets will not be cancelled automatically. You have to file TDR at irctc portal. The wait listed passengers 3 and 4 may be permitted to travel along with you at the discretion of the TTE and if you can adjust within the two confirmed berths you have and the co passengers do not object. If you plan to cancel the ticket, I will advise you to get passenger not traveled certificate from the TTE.
