Is it possible to transfer a confirmed railway ticket in the name of one family member to another immediate family member? Though I have already found similar threads asking the same question, but they were asked quite sometimes ago, like 2011 or earlier. Those thread said, YES, you can. But even then, I asked an acquaintance who know another person who is a TTE to confirm it. My acquaintance replied to me that the transfer of ticket even to a family member is not possible.
This had me in a fix and I would like to verify whether my acquaintance lied to me. Also, to know whether the rule has been updated and no longer transfer of ticket to another family member is allow.

Please help me. Thank you!

Here is what it says on the indianrail.gov.in website http://www.indianrail.gov.in/change_Name.html

1. Save as otherwise, a berth or a seat reserved in the name of a person shall be used only by the person and shall not be transferable to any other person.

2. Chief Reservation Supervisor of important stations are authorized by Railway Administration to permit the change of name of a passenger having a seat or berth reserved in his name in the following circumstances namely :

Thanks Dave!

Actually, I have already visited this page too. But as it is an Indian govt website, I doubt they keep it up-to-date. So wanted to know whether the rule has been changed or not.

Has anyone actually transferred the ticket to their family member?

Thanks!
