Hi Experts, For kids in the age of 5 - 12, 50% of fare needs to be paid if berth is not required.
How much fare will be deducted if we can cancel kid's ticket for Sleeper class? Will it be Rs 60?

Hi Experts, For changing name of passenger (within immediate relationship), we can request to CRS (Railway Officer) along with ID proof before 48 hours of train departure. Please advise if this rule is still there.
I believe we can't do this online.

No. There is no such option on IRCTC portal. You have to do other way round.

Its becoz of special train. Railway wants to provide a confirm seat in an another special train which will leave MS at 11:10.
If you still want to book in 16723.... You can click on
"""Continue with Previous Booking Choice""" and you will find your booking form.

Hi Experts, I have a quick query regarding VIKAPL train.
I booked ticket from MS to CVP today via 12632NELLAI Express and it's in WL. When I check VIKALP, I see that 82601-SUVIDHA train is listed.
If I opt for VIKALP and choose SUVIDHA, will the difference in fare will be charged to me? I booked ticket online.

Thanks a lot Jagdeesh :)
can you confirm my below understanding?
When chart is prepared for 12632 (at 16:10) and if VIKALP is opted for 82601-SUVIDHA for which chart will be prepared at 17:05, mine
will be considered for SUVIDHA train if it remains WL in 12632 Chart preparation. And I will be allotted berth in SUVIDHA if it's available while it's chart is
And no difference in fare/cancellation charge applied. Is that correct?

after chart preparation, confirmed tickets and RAC tickets are cancelled by filing TDR. And you will not get fair amount of refund. May be zero refund too!
that's all depending upon TDR rules.

Hi Experts, if I have to file TDR for RAC ticket, we need to file before 30 minutes of scheduled departure of the train.
For 12634 - KANYAKUMARI EXP, I booked ticket from VLY to MS; however, Boarding point is VPT.
For 1 passenger, it's RAC and for another, it's WL#1 post Chart Preparation. If I want to file TDR, do I need to file before 20:35 (schedule departure from VPT is 21:05)
30 minutes from scheduled departure from Kanyakumari itself (Originating Station). Please advise.

Dear experts,
My cousin has booked confirmed ticket in Train#06047 from SA to TCR. However, he's notified via SMS that departure from Originating Station, MAS has been delayed and will start at 2 am instead of 22:50. If he files TDR and does not travel, will he get full refund as per rule (as train delayed by more than 3 hours)? Please confirm.

Hi Experts, In some trains (for ex #22622 - CAPE RMM EXP from VPT to RMM), when I book the ticket for only female passengers, berths are getting allocated while booking even though it's GLWL# as per the availability shown before. However, when I try to book in some other trains (for ex#12632 from CVP to MS), availability for female passengers is same as general availability.
Please advise if the blocking of berths for female passengers (even though it goes to RAC/WL as per the general availability) is applicable only in few trains.
