In my view, Side Berths of 3rd AC and 2nd AC coaches are almost similar [Except width / length specification in that case 3rd AC coach itself is sufficient to accomodate a normal person]. Is there any other differences that would justify the price difference?

Yes Pretty Much no Difference...In 2AC:
1.Less No.of Passengers.
2.Bit more comfort.
3.Mostly the SLB berths not given for RAC,Usually LB are given for RAC in 2AC.

since less number of passengers, toilets will take bit more time to smelly.
and for the same reason cooling will be too good.. more comfort will be there in 2A... only on experience you can feel that comfort.

Non-commencement or missing of journey due to late running of trains. -
in case of e-tickets, the TDR is filed online before the actual departure of the train for availing full refund.
· In case the ticket is cancelled or surrendered or if the request for refund of fare is filed online after the actual departure of the train, no refund of fare shall be admissible.
U came to the station and got to know that the train is more than 3 hours late and there is no internet connection/cafe, then what?
or, if yu travel by another train in emergency taking a general ticket/ current ticket without waiting for the late train , then what?
