IRCTC has announced new rules

Today IRCTC has announced a few rules that are about to be changed from tomorrow.

From Oct 10 onwards, Indian Railways seats will be available a few minutes before the railway reservation.

Here are new changes you need to know about

1)       The second reservation chart will be prepared 30 minutes before the scheduled departure of trains from stations. This was normal before Covid. But when the Indian Railways started special passenger trains amid the pandemic, the second reservation chart was being prepared two hours before the scheduled departure.

2)      Train tickets can be booked until the second reservation chart is prepared. As of tomorrow, these charts will be prepared between 30 minutes to 5 minutes before the scheduled departure, tickets can be booked during this time.

A Nation-wide Initiative Much Needed

2)      Train tickets can be booked until the second reservation chart is prepared. As of tomorrow, these charts will be prepared between 30 minutes to 5 minutes before the scheduled departure, tickets can be booked during this time.

3)     The first chart is prepared at least four hours before the scheduled departure of the train. If seats become vacant owing to cancellation, they can be booked through PRS counters and online till the preparation of the second chart.

4)      Tickets can also be canceled during this time, as per the provisions of the refund rules.

5)      The timings were changed during the pandemic as initially, tickets were only available online. The Railways was avoiding crowding at the stations and the aim was to discourage people from traveling unless necessary.

6)      In the last few months, the situation has changed. The Centre has been focussing more on reopening instead of locking down. The Railways has started several new trains as well. With the festive season coming, the Railways have already announced 39 pairs of new special trains. It has not yet announced a date for these special trains but they will be operational between October 15 and November 30.
