Can I Cancel My Train Ticket After Chart Preparation?

There are times when you might find yourself in a situation when you have to cancel your train journey at the last minute. What we mean here is that you might have to cancel your train journey after chart preparation and a lot of people have a question about the refund that they would receive if they cancel the train after chart preparation.

Here is a quick answer to your question

You can cancel the ticket and you can file the TDR until 4 hours before the departure date. Also, it should be noted that if the passenger is in RAC or waitlist then the refund will be credited fully. Only the service charge will be deducted. This is applicable for the Tatkal as well as a general quota. In addition to this, passengers on waitlist do not have to cancel the ticket as they are automatically cancelled.

If your ticket was on RAC then you need to basically obtain the certificate from the TTE to list that you didn’t travel and in such a case, TDR can be filled later. Moreover, if you plan to ensure a confirmed ticket then you must know that there will be no refund given to you in case you booked a ticket in Tatkal Quota.

Lastly, to summarize it, you can cancel the ticket after chart preparation but you must avoid such changes as the cancellation fee is high in case of the confirmed ticket. You do not have to worry if you are still in waitlist during the chart preparation as the ticket will be auto-cancelled and the refund will be credited to your account automatically. We hope this answers your question and for more information, refer to website or give a call to the central helpline number 139
