Need advise on whether to choose YPR or SBC dormitory - which is better? I heard SBC has private curtain and locked cabin in its dorm. How does it compare with YPR dorms? I reach YPR and depart from SBC, so can choose either for online booking.

For the below fare break-up, if ticket is cancelled 4 hours before departure, IR says 25% will be deducted. So, will it be 25% of 368 (base fare) or 25% of 470? Or is service charge fully refunded (so it is 25% of 453)?
Fare/Charges Class -- AC Chair Car
Base Fare 368
Charges 40
Superfast Charges 45
Other Charges 0
Service tax 17
Total Amount 470

I dont get you, do you mean to say, 75% of 368 will be given to me (I will lose reservation and SF charges too?)

I think 25% of 453 will be deducted, ie, 113.25. Service tax of 17 rupees will be refunded fully. But, service tax of 3.708% will be again cut on amount deducted, which is 3.708% of 113.25 = 4.20 rupees. So, total deduction will be 113.25+4.20 = 118 rupees.
Could somebody confirm pls?

So, for example, if train starts at 10.30 PM on 25 April and my ticket is from station which the train reaches on 26 April, I should still cancel the ticket by 24 April. Right?
