I found the information below on the IRCTC web site which says that you CAN cancel e-tickets -- however I have not found any information or links on HOW to cancel pre-booked rail tickets --- Anyone have any info?

Cancellation of tickets before departure of trains

Cancellation of e-tickets can be done at any computerised reservation counter across the country and a cancellation ticket obtained. NO CASH REFUND will be given. Bank charges that are being levied by the Payment Gateways/Banks are not subject to refund in the event of cancellation of tickets by the Customer. Service Charge is also not refundable. The refund amount will be credited to the respective account electronically, the following day of cancellation. Refund of fare shall be made after deduction of cancellation charge of the fare as follows:

*
If a ticket is cancelled more than one day in advance of the scheduled departure of the train (excluding the day of Journey), cancellation charges shall be deducted at the flat rate of Rs.50/- for AC First Class/Executive Class, Rs.30/- for AC 2 Tier/AC 3 Tier/First Class/AC Chair car, Rs.20/- for Sleeper Class and Rs.10/- for Second Class.
*
If a ticket is cancelled within one day in advance (excluding the day of journey) and upto 4 hours before the departure of the train, cancellation charges shall be 25% of the fare subject to the minimum flat rate mentioned in the above clause.

But what if your trip is entirely canceled, then how would you get to a reservation counter?

Or how would you be able to give the "more than one day notice" if your reservation is for the day your arrive?

Cancelation of Train tickets

When you have reserved a ticket thru the net, in a couple of days you will get the paper tickets sent by courier. Take the tickets to any one of the computerised reservation counters physically and get it cancelled. You will not get any money on hand but your creditcard statement will reflect the credit.You can NOT cancel the tickets on the net.

Even if your total journey is cancelled , you have to take the paper ticket(that you would have received by courier) for cancellation to the reservation counter physically.

You can cancel the ticket just a few hours before the departure of train.

I think one can cancel a ticket upto certain hours even after the departure of the train, but with a higher cancellation fee; maybe 50%.

good reason not to book online or reserve or planning in general.

for all you newbie travellers, this is one of many reasons why not to book ahead. i realize your concerns -but you will find transport, a room, a meal in the end just have faith you are clever enough to sort it all out.

i still have to fight the urge to overthink/organize seemingly everything ;-) i do, planning contingencies and being ever prepared - but you know what. what ive learned through the years -just go with it.

the best thing you can do is familiarize yourself with the path ahead, the worst thing is to actually lay plans. often these plans not only have to be undone at cost but they may complicate issues and dig in to valuable travel time and holiday.

ankita,

This is a travel forum, not the direct line to Indian Railways! If you kindly give a better description of your ticket, someone may perhaps be able to help you.

If I'm not mistaken, the Railway station clerks, or any travel agent, can help you cancel it.

So being in India, that's what I (probably) would do.* I guess an agent might charge you Rs. 10 or so for it; fair enough. (Or I reckon they may as well just do it for free, and wish you a good day.)

* Though living there, which I don't, of course it would be handy to know how to do it from the comfort of your home or office. I'm just saying that walking out to get something physically arranged may often still work wonders, and in fact may still often be the easiest and swiftest way to go about things.

(And to others: Kindly note this thread up till post #9 above dates to 2004. Quite a lot has changed in the whole system since then.)
