Earlier today, Railways decided to extend the time limit beyond six months and up to nine months from the date of the journey for cancellation of PRS counter tickets and refund of fare across reservation counters for the journey period March 21, 2020, to July 31, 2020.
It is applicable only for regular timetabled trains cancelled by Railways. In case of ticket cancelled through 139 or through IRCTC website, the time limit for surrendering of such ticket for the above mentioned period across reservation counter is up to nine months from the date of journey.
Meanwhile, Railways on Wednesday rubbished reports of fare hike from January 6 claiming that the reports are “fake” and “baseless”. The railways are slowly resuming operations which were hit due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. Clarifying the stand, the press information bureau (PIB) tweeted, “Several media outlets have reported that Indian Railways is planning to raise passenger fares from January 6, 2021. This claim is fake and baseless. There is NO proposal under consideration to increase the fares.”
