What is meant by Break Journey? What are the rules?
What is meant by Break Journey? What are the rules?
dear mahaveer ji, sorry for delayed response. Thanks for sharing your tkt pics. I would like to state some facts about telescopic fares.
1.telescopic fares are a facility given to passengers making long journeys more than 500km or journeys where railways are unable to provide direct connectivity
2.onward journey/continuation journey is when your train reaches destination and you board the next train within 24 hrs. In this case fare charged on second ticket will be rs. Zero(your tkt beingonward tkt)
3.break journey is when you opt for maximum of two days of break(excluding the date of arrival and departure) in the transition station. The second ticket will consist of fresh resvn charges of rs.20/30
1. I differ. There is no such distance stipulation of 500 km.
3. Excluding the day of arrival and departure.
4. No. 3AC Fare for Express for 615 is not charged. There are some deductions.
5. Yuva, GR and JS do not fall into premium category of trains.
8. Is it regarding Break Journey you are talking about?
9. Not necessarily train should ply via the shortest possible route.
11/12. Would need to verify this. Kindly provide with any screen shot of tickets if you have availed such facility.
1.for break journeys, minimum distance travelled should be more than 500 kilometres
also as personally experienced by me in /blog/post/444282
2.i have also said excluding the day of arrival and departure
4.as far as my knowledge goes the fare for 615 km will be charged as the entire fare is calculated in first ticket and during booking first ticket you cannot feed in details of second/third leg. so system is unaware whether i ll book by which train
5 yuva gr and js are all unavailable for telescopic. they may not be premier trains but are all included in special category trains with point to point fare structure.
