Revises Ticket Refund Rules-Indian Railways

The Ministry of Railways revised and amended ticket refund rules on Tuesday, which will be effective from 1 July.

Accordingly, passengers need to cancel their confirmed tickets 48 hours ahead of the journey instead of the existing 24 hours to get maximum refund on the travel charges.
