Hi Everyone,
I need a clarification - I'll be arriving at ADI by 22958 morning @ 05:30 on 14th March and I'll be taking next train 12902 @ 22:00 Hours in the same evening.
Am trying to book a retiring room via IRCTC @ ADI, The website is showing me to book from 13th night 21:00 hours till 14th night 21:00. My question is I'll be arriving ADI only in the morning 5:30 (But the retiring room will be booked from 21:00 hours from previous night). Will the IRCTC cancel or forfeit
my bookings showing reason as "No show"?
What does the rule says? Thanks in advance.

In your RR booking receipt schedule arrival time of your train will be shown. Even your train delayed by 2-3 hrs your booking will remain valid.
if your train delayed by more than your check-out time, you will not entitled for your RR booking. (don't know about such refunds)...

The Rule applies to all. Why they are doing partial booking to certain stations is not clear.
If anyone can bring a 'specific case' with PNR and request and station name and officer who refused this request and date time of request, I will be glad to submit same to IR RM through

Please have this news for partial booking : For source : click here
Now train passengers will be able to book retiring rooms on hourly basis as railways has revised the current practice of 12/24 hours booking rule to cater to the growing demand for lodging facility at railway premises. Railways provides lodging facility through retiring rooms to its passengers at stations spread across the country.
hourly booking service will be operational at a few major stations including Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Surat and later expanded to other stations. Currently, booking of retiring room is being done for the fixed slots of 24 and 12 hours along with fixed tariff for the respective slot.
As per the changed rule, retiring room can now be booked for the minimum three hours and maximum up to 48 hours. Passenger can book retiring room for the desired period and it will result in effective use of retiring room, better utilization and also increase in revenue, said a senior Railway Ministry official.
However, hourly booking will not be allowed from 9 pm to 9 am as one has to book the entire 12 hours period to avail the room. The tariff would be charged on hourly basis.
The online booking of retiring rooms can be done through IRCTC website. The facility of booking of retiring room is available only on confirmed and RAC tic
