With reference to my post (link /blog/post/2960344 )I am posting FAQs about Bank Charges while purchasing Tickets by Debit/Credit Cards at PRS counters.
1)How much charges will I be charged by the Railways or the Banks if I book by DEBIT Cards at PRS Counter?
A:Railways waived off the INR 30 which they charged for Card Purchase at counters w.e.f 01/06/2016 so Railways won't charge you anything.As far as Banks are concerned if the card is a RuPay Debit card of any bank there is NO Charges at all.For Visa/MasterCard/Maestro Debit
...

cards majority of Banks including SBI/ICICI/IDBI/AXIS/UBI 'DO NOT' charge any fee.1 or 2 banks levy 0.9% to 1% of the amount.You may contact your bank for the same.
2)How much is charged for bookings through CREDIT Cards at PRS counters?
A:A charge of 1.5%+GST of 18% over 1.5%(Total is 1.77%) is charged for booking at PRS counters by Credit Cards.
3)What are the benefits of booking tickets by Debit or Credit Cards at PRS locations?
A:Problem of Change for Cash transaction is solved.If ATM withdrawal limit has exceeded than free transaction offered one can book by Debit card.He/She saves around INR 20 of withdrawal charges as Debit Card charges are ZERO for most banks at PRS counters.
4)Are there any advantages Paying by Card at PRS than booking online?
A:Booking Online tickets by Debit Card of any bank attracts a nominal charge of 0.25% to 1% of the amount.Whereas through PRS charges for Maximum Debit Card are NIL.Booking by Credit Card attracts a charge of 1.65% to 1.9% +18% GST on the Service Charge whereas at PRS it is Flat 1.77% .Some bank do not charge for Credit Card as well.
5) For Cancellation procedure and Refund Process and Refund timelines you can refer to the blog whose link is given above.
Note:Booking through Card at PRS is best when one is confirm to travel on a particular date as Modification is not permitted in these tickets.As of now only Cancellation is allowed.Booking through Card takes a bit longer as RRN No etc details are to be fed into the system for Refund purpose which will be printed on the ticket so it is best when you have time to buy your ticket and is not an emergency ticket which gets over within seconds.

Digital Payments in Railways:With RBI reducing MDR(Merchant Discount Rates) for Debit Card purchase on POS below ₹2000 and for all other amounts for all merchant categories specially for merchants whose turnover is less than 20 lakhs and Government agencies W.E.F today (Published in various news paper on 06/12/2017) and Railways introducing BHIM app payments and to offer discount for Cashless transactions (Published in various news paper on 07/12/2017 and later) the Card payment is likely to increase in PRS and UTS counters. For refund of PRS ticket cancellations the card last 4 digits and RRN no should be fed in the system accurately by the ECRC.RRN no to be generated by the POS and will be printed on the ticket as well. Here I am posting my Ticket with the Charge Slip generated by SBI POS terminal.In the ticket picture the numbers (Card Last 4 digits and RRN) are marked...

in blue in both charge slip and ticket. This has to be done accurately and should be checked nicely by the passenger because if these numbers are not entered correctly you may not get refund if the ticket is cancelled as the refund is processed in offline mode and the amount will be credited in the same account within 7 working days. Thanks.

What Is Centre Buffer Couple (CBC).
Coupling facilitates inter connection of rolling stock to form a train. Due to certain limitations of age old srew coupling system, CBC becomes the most useful & viable choice. There are certain features of CBC which makes it an unanimous choice & extensively used in most of the freight cars, EMU coaches & all of the LHB coaches of Indian Railways.
Saliant Features
It

transmits both draft & buffing load between vehicles and to/ from under-frame. It absorb high frequency forces during impact & dissipates low frequency forces to protect the vehicle from damage. It has got multi functional units like Draft+Buffing & Automatic FP+BP connections.
Advantages of CBC
Automatic coupling type & Quick detachment possible, which in turn is safe for shunting staff & reduces time required.
Less staff for uncoupling.
Prevention of uncoupling in the event of derailment/accident.
Anti-climbing feature (for LHB coaches) to prevent damage to life & property during accident.
Types of CBC adopted in IR
AAR E/F type used in wagons.
AAR(H) type Tight lock used in LHB coaches.
Dellner Coupler used in LHB coaches.
Rigid Type Schaku coupler used in DMU/EMUs.
Slackless drawbar in BLC wagons.
Transition coupling (e.g. in BOBYN).
Hook type in MG/NG stocks.
Main Components of CBC

CBC Coupling provides extra safety to passengers: here i would like to Quote one of our admin Mr Murali sir on the topic " how cbc coupling provides xtra safety to passengers"
CBC couplers are like two fists gripping each other. The chances of
un-coupling in case of derailment are very low, so one coach climbing over

is low.
If a accident enough force to tip a coach over to its side. the two adjacent coaches will hold this coach straight remember Bhuvneshwar Raj incident a
few months back. There is a extremely small chance that the whole rake may
tip over.
Even in the Dnynashweri Exp incidence, where half the rake tipped over it's
side onto the adjacent track, this CBC would have kept the rake upright
(Loco and first half of the train had not derailed) and at the most a few
feet to the side.
The world has used CBC since 1960's, even with steam locos, our old MG
stock is also retrofitted with CBC couplers.
