Hi,

I have two tickets for train from Agra to Jaipur on 26/10/2010 in 2AC. However, I think that instead of Jaipur, I would like to stay onboard overnight and get up to Udaipur.

When searching for availability, the Agra - Udaipur is already waitlisted. Jaipur - Udaipur portion of that route is still available.

In this case, it does not make sense (I think) to cancel my valid, confirmed ticket for AGRA - JAIPUR and purchase a new, waitlisted for AGRA - UDAIPUR. Is is possible to extend my ticket anyhow up to Udaipur, or I have to buy a new one, from Jaipur to Udaipur and change the seats in Jaipur?

Looking forward to your advices.

Thanks a lot,

Bartek

The TTE on the train can extend the ticket till where ever you want to go, but you may not have reservation for the extended part of the journey.

I think it would be better to book Jaipur - Udaipur seprately and change your seats in Jaipur. Most probably there would be only one 2AC coach in the train.

Suggest you to do what Aarosh has recommended. To extend the ticket, sometimes TTEs dont turn up or dont do it for whatever reasons and you would be left high and dry.

It's too risky to wait and ask the TTE to upgrade, and you can't purchase 2 tickets for 2 separate sections of a train's journey, it's not allowed, and you'd be taking a risk as you'd be traveling in the same carriage for each section, however, there is a solution.

Bharatpur is a really relaxing town 55kms from Agra, and 25kms from Fathepur Sikri, it's well worth a visit if you can squeeze it in, but if not, the following train would still allow you to stick to your Itinerary, and you could simply travel from Agra to Bharatpur to catch the train.

Train 2963 departs Bharatpur daily at 21:41 and gets to Udaipur at 07:20, there is still plenty of availability in 2A for 26th, 27th and 28th October.

##The TTEs will extend the ticket beyond the booked point, subject to availability of confirmed accomodation. Had it been a day-journey, there would not have been any problem. But the JP-UDZ is an overnight one; hence, the ticket will NOT be extended unless there is a confirmed accomodation.

##In the instant case, it is better, to book JP-UDZ Ticket in the same train - either in the same Class (OR) in another Class. It would be much more better, if it is with Confirmed Status.

As usual - many thanks for your help.

I feel like vsp and Steven's advices are in contradiction, if I understand them correctly.

Is it illegal to have 2 tickets for 2 different sections of the same train ? Vsp recommendation to do that seems to fit best my needs, however I don't want to get into trouble as suggested by Steven...

##Your understanding is perfectly correct.

##My enquiries revealed that this is NOT illegal. Two separate tickets for two different legs can be taken by the same train and in the same class. But on a through ticket two different reservations cannot be made for two different legs on the same train.[By the way, a Through Ticket CANNOT BE purchased through Internet. This is possible only across the PRS Counter.]

@@Taking your case -

**You cannot purchase the ticket as Agra to Udaipur with Resv. upto Jaipur and again Jaipur to Udaipur on the same Train/Date/Route/Class; in short this is termed as TDRC in the PRS Functioning.

**You can reserve Two separate tickets as AGRA-JAIPUR & JAIPUR-UDAIPUR for the same TDRC.


##But, if you have any apprehensions, you can very safely ignore my suggestion.

A Through ticket uses the advantage of telescopic fare.

Agra-Jaipur is Rs 504 in 2AC.
Jaipur-Udaipur is Rs 732.

But one ticket directly from Agra-Udaipur is Rs 1018.


My guess is that if one is purchasing 2 distinct tickets, railways is getting extra cash and that is maybe why they allow it

VSP, I'm confused, I learn that you can't book 2 separate tickets for 2 sectors of the same train, and it was you who told me this, if I remember correct, you were replying to a person wanting to travel Hyderabad to Delhi on the Rajdhani, all tickets were waitlisted, but there was availability up to Nagpur, and also from Nagpur to Delhi, I seem to remember you telling the man that he wasn't allowed to book the 2 separate tickets. (and it makes sense, as these tickets are reserved for people traveling the shorter distances)

##I don't remember exactly, I must have told him that he cannot book through ticket as Secunderabad to Nizamuddin with Resv. upto NGP and again NGP-NZM on the same ticket. As you must be aware, B/J is NOT allowed on Rajdhani.

##Only after making enquiries yesterday, I made that posting.

(...contd...)

##Just now, I enquired once again. I was told Two Separate tickets can be booked.

##As illustrated by Mr.bond,it is a profit for Railways and loss for the passenger!!!
