Howdy, Delhizens? There have been a lot of developments recently under the lockdown 3.0 that is supposedly ending on 17th of May, and one latest development that we heard of is that Indian Railways has cancelled all the regular train tickets till the 30th of June. Scroll on for the detailed info, folks!
To Curb The Spread Of COVID-19 | Indian Railways has ensured that full refund will be given to all the passengers who had booked the tickets during the lockdown when the bookings were open for June. But, this does not include the Shramik Special, that takes the migrant labourers from different states to their home and other special trains running on 15 routes that are carrying passengers stranded across the country. These trains have been running since the 12th of May and were started to slowly resume the train services in the country.
The e-tickets will be refunded automatically and those tickets that were bought at the counter after 21st of March need to be submitted within six months from the date of journey, which will be cancelled and refunded thereon. Ticket Deposit Receipt (TDR) can be filed by the passenger and they can submit it within 60 days to the Chief Claims Officer/CCM Refund for the refund amount.
The PRS counter ticket can also be refunded by calling 139 or IRCTC’s website. Railways’ express, passenger, regular mail and suburban services were suspended from 25th of March and the authorities had stopped taking bookings for the regular trains from the 14th of April.
So, what do you think of this measure taken by the Indian Railways?
