1.(i)Rules, rates and other particulars regarding issue of season tickets can be
obtained by application to the Railway concerned. Season tickets are issued for
suburban as well as non-suburban sections. Fares for Second Class MST is
equivalent to the fares for 15 single journeys by second class (Ordinary) uniformly
all distances. Fares for First class MST continues to be four times the Second
Class MST fares. Season tickets to children are issued at half of the adult season
ticket fare. Quarterly Season tickets are charged at 2.7 times of the normal
adult/child MST fare. Season tickets are issued for First and Second classes only
and these tickets are valid in the class for which they are issued. Only one season
ticket is issued to a passenger to travel between the stations serving his place of
residence and place of work/studies. If the passenger is found with more than
one season ticket to flout the distance limits, the additional season ticket will be
treated as invalid. First class season ticket holders are not allowed to travel in AC
coaches. On specific sections where there is sufficient demand of first class
season tickets and it is not possible to attach first class chair cars, zonal railways
may attach AC Chair car coaches, if available, for exclusive use of first class
season ticket holders. On those sections, where there is no first class service, first
class season tickets are not issued at all.
(ii) Distance :Season tickets are issued upto 150 Kms. only. Season tickets for
more than 150 kms are issued only on those sections where they were being
issued prior to 1951 (except on those sections where they have been withdrawn
due to lack of demand).
(iii) Identity Card :A photo Identity Card, alongwith a plastic cover, is issued to
every season ticket holder at a nominal cost of Re. 1. The Identity Card will be
valid for 5 years or such time it gets defaced/mutilated, whichever is earlier. The
Identity Card having Printed Card number will contain Name, Address, Age, Sex &
Signature of the holder. Identity Card Number must be written on Season Ticket. It
is necessary for the passenger to produce the Identity Card alongwith the season
ticket, otherwise the season ticket will be invalid and the passenger will be treated
as without ticket. It is necessary that the particulars of the passenger are properly
& correctly entered on the Identity Card and the photograph firmly pasted thereon.
The Booking Clerk will put the Station Stamp in such a way that half of the stamp
appears on photograph and the remaining part appears on the Identity Card.
In addition to above, the Identity Card, Pan Card, Passport, Driving Licence, Voter
Identity Card and Credit Card issued with photograph by any Government in India
or some Government agency in India, will also be accepted as proof of identity for
issue and renewal of season tickets. The serial number of such document shall
be written on season ticket. While travelling, the passenger must carry this
document, alongwith season ticket, without which the season ticket will be invalid
and the passenger will be treated as without ticket.
(iv) Validity :Season tickets are not valid for travel in reserved coaches and trains.
They are valid for travel by Passenger trains. In the case of Mail/
Express/Superfast trains, they are valid for travel by only those Mail/Express
/Superfast trains where it has specifically been permitted by Railway
Administration. However, they are valid for travel subject to the distance
restriction otherwise applicable in individual train. The first class season ticket
holders are, however, allowed to travel in first class coaches during day time only,
subject to the distance restrictions applicable on the concerned train.
(v) Renewal :Season ticket can be renewed 10 days in advance of the date of
expiry. In such cases, it will be made valid only after the date of expiry and not
from the date of renewal.
(vi) Superfast Surcharge Ticket: Wherever permitted by Railway Administration,
the passenger can travel in unreserved coaches of Superfast trains also. In such a
case, he is required to purchase the Superfast Surcharge ticket for each journey in
advance. For the convenience of passengers who want to travel regularly by
Superfast trains, the Railways also issue the Monthly/Quarterly Superfast
Surcharge tickets on demand. The superfast surcharge will, however, not be levied
on season ticket holders travelling by those superfast trains, which have total
journey less than 325 kms from train originating to destination station.
(vii) Refund: Refund on unused or partially used season tickets is not admissible
under any circumstances.
