Hi all,

I have finalized a Circular Journey Itinerary which is as follows:

YPR-DEE by 12213 Duronto in 3A
NDLS-AGC by 12002 Shatabdi in CC
AF-JP by 12036 Shatabdi in CC
JP-MAO by 12978 Marusagar in 3A
MAO-SBC by 02779 Rani Chennamma Slip in 3A

My questions are:
1. Is a mix of classes (3A in some and CC in some) allowed, or have all classes to be the same?
2. Is YPR-DEE and then NDLS-AGC allowed since it is in effect repeating a part of the same stretch?

I would be very grateful if someone could help me with this...

Thanks in advance,
vadakkus

Mixed classes are allowed in a Circular Journey Ticket.

If there is no alternative repetition of route is also permitted.

Duronto and shatabdi trains are not allowed for circular journey ticket(recently I had purchased CJT) and for NDLS to AGC section If there is no alternative route only then it is allowed.

Its very difficult to get confirmed ticket for the first lap because the railway staff wont issue CJT ticket at 8:00 AM on day of purchase.

Question to moderators : in the interests of comprehension should railway code speak be banned just like SMS speak is?!

Are you talking about station codes? In my view it is better to use these than not as it reduces confusion.

I would suggest, both extended name and Code may be used, else have to search the Code directory.

Thanks Teja,

I have heard of cases where Rajdhani & Shatabdi were allowed on CJTs after payment of extra fare (both trains were running empty). There is an alternate route (NDLS - Tundla - Agra) but there are no trains on that route. I really want to take that Duronto!

yes I have also read about availing CJT for durontos and Rajdhanis(for link http://www.easternrailwaysealdah.gov...aspx?action=17) but when I approached PRS of visakhapatnam they couldn't able to book cjt in rajdhani express. now CJT's are issued through computerized system not manually so the system didn't allowed showing some error.
