I have reserved a ticket in one of railway station's counter.

This is not e-ticket or anything, direct printed ticket issued in railway station booking counter. And my berths are confirmed.

Now the problem is: This ticket was torn by children
Still one more week is there for me to travel...I have a doubt whether that ticket is accepted or not..
So, please guide me where i can get the duplicate ticket if i want.. or that torn ticket will be accepted by TC in the train??

Can you people please help me in this...

Thanks a lot.

Welcome to Indiamike cnug79 ,

You need to get duplicate ticket from PRS counter.Torn ticket is admissible if its genuineness and authenticity is verified on the basis of particulars visible on the face of such ticket.

You'll be charged 25% of the fare, after the preparation of reservation chart. Before preparation of the reservation chart on collection of 50% of the fare.

Go through section "ISSUE OF DUPLICATE TICKET IN LIEU OF TORN/MUTILATED TICKETS" located on

http://www.indianrail.gov.in/refund_rules.html

Doesn't above look little strange Steven (go through link).. I think it should be other way around

Yes, strange, I agree with you, it should be the other way around.

If the ticket was still totally readable (is that a word?), I'd be tempted to play the dumb tourist and take the chance that the TTE will be OK with the ticket.

In my 2006 Southern Zone timetable (must get a new one, one of these years!) it is the other way around.

If the information is clear and readable, then no need to worry. Use cellophane tape to stick the pieces (if any) together and hope for the best.

You can of course go to any PRS counter to get a duplicate as well, not necessarily the one that issued it.

you can get a duplicate ticket from the reservation counter, just ensure that you carry a valid ID proof with you.


ISSUE OF DUPLICATE TICKET FROM THE STATION (AS ON 1.5.07)


(1) (i) If the reservation status of the lost, misplaced, torn or mutilated ticket is reserved or RAC and duplicate ticket is sought before preparation of reservation chart, the station master shall issue a duplicate ticket in lieu of the original ticket on collection of the clerkage charge per passenger.

(ii) If duplicate ticket in lieu of a lost or misplaced reserved ticket is sought after preparation of reservation chart, it shall be issued on collection of 50% of total fare. Duplicate tickets shall not be issued for RAC tickets after preparation of reservation chart.

(iii) If duplicate ticket in lieu of a torn or mutilated reserved or RAC ticket is sought after preparation of reservation chart, it shall be issued on collection of 25% of the total fare.

(2) (i) No refund shall be granted in respect of charges collected for issuing duplicate tickets except where the lost or misplaced ticket is traced after the issuance of a duplicate ticket and presented alongwith the duplicate ticket before departure of the train. The charges collected for issuing duplicate ticket shall be refunded after deducting five per cent. thereof subject to a minimum deduction of rupees twenty. In case the journey is also not undertaken, the cancellation charges on the original ticket shall be determined as provided under Refund rules.

(ii) The passenger, who has paid excess charges in train on account of his reserved ticket or RAC ticket being lost, misplaced, torn or mutilated, can make an application to Chief Commercial Manager (Refunds) of that Railway administration for grant of refund of the charges paid in train, who may, if decided, grant refund of the charges realised in the train after retaining the cancellation charges at 50% of fare per passenger provided that no one has taken refund earlier on the original ticket.

Can you kindly tell me where did you find the above extract? Moreover the statements made are very ambiguous and unclear.

Rules are very simple.
If you wish to have a duplicate ticket, go to any PRS Counter and get the duplicate ticket by paying the clerkage charges. Also carry your valid ID Proof. (BEfore chart preparation)
If you wish to do the same after chart preparation, duplicate ticket will be issued on the collection of the 50% of the fare.
You can try the way Narendra Sir has suggested, but it is always better to take the necessary precautions since you have enough time left.

Regards.
