Hi,

Is it advisable to book tickets in Kerala Express (12626) from Delhi (NDLS) to travel to Agra ? The train has a distance restriction and hence will only let me book to Gwalior and not Agra. Can I book to Gwalior and get down at Agra? Will it attract any penalty ?

Kindly advise. TIA

There will be an armed guard on the platform who will push you back onto the train. As for a penalty - you might be made to so a few sit-ups on the platform before being hustled back onto the train.

Any specific reason for opting for Kerala Express? You can get down before your per-designated stop. There should not be any problem.

Gloghar Thanks for your funny reply.

Aarosh,

Kerala express is the only train that would best suit with my flight timings. And hence that plan.

Btw, I have got the answer for my question.

Quote:
528. Passengers with short distance tickets found traveling by restricted trains.�A passenger, found traveling with a short distance ticket in a train on which the distance restriction applies, will be charged the difference between the fare paid and the fare to the nearest station to which he should have properly purchased a ticket by that train. Where the distance between the station at which the passenger entrains and the destination of the train itself is less than the minimum distance prescribed for the train, he will be liable to pay the difference between the fare paid and the fare for the minimum distance. But a passenger who holds a ticket for a station beyond the restricted distance and detrains short of the minimum distance, travel upto which is restricted, is not to be penalized in any manner.
So I should be fine with this plan as long as I pay for the ticket upto Gwalior and get down at Agra.

Thanks folks.

You have it from the horse's mouth so why are you bothering us amateurs. Of the course the TTI might ask for some chai-pani.
