Hi,

Please let me know if I can schedule my journey in the follwoing manner
1.I want to go to Delhi from Bangalore..
2. I want to break my journey at Kopargaon(reservation upto Kopargaon).
3. I want to resume my journey from Manmad( next station from Kopargaon) next day.
Is it possible to get the reservation from Manmad instead of Kopargaon where I will be breaking my Journey. I want to resume the journy from Manmad as seat quota is more in Manmad compared to Kopargaon.

Thanks for your suggestions..

Regards

Ajay

Break Journey Rules

From Indian Railways site;


Holders of single journey tickets for distance of more than 500 kms. (actual distance) are allowed to break journey once for two days at any station en-route. This facility can be availed only after traveling 500 Kms. from the starting station.If ticket is for more than 1000Kms, passenger will be allow to break journey twice.The day of departure and arraival must be excluded while calculating the number of eligible days for first break of journey and ticket should be endorsed by the station manager/ticket collector at the station where the break journey is intended .

NOTE:-
1. This facility is not available to passengers travelling by Rajdhani/Shatbadi/Jan shatbadi express trains.

2. This facility is not permitted short of the station up to which reservation has been done.

3. Inentation to break journey is to be advised at the time of original booking and not after obtaining reservation.


Example:-

1. A passenger with single journey ticket for 800 kms. wants to break his journey at 423 kms. not permissible

2. A passenger with single journey ticket for 600 kms. wants to break his journey at 501 kms. Permitted once for 2 days maximum

3. A passenger with single journey ticket for 1050 kms. wants to break his journey at 400 kms. and 801 kms. Only one break journey at 801 kms. is permitted for 2 days maximum

4. A passenger with single journey ticket for 2000 kms. wants to break journey at 800 kms., 905 kms. and 1505 kms. Two break journeys permitted as per choice of passenger at the rate of two days maximum at each point of break of journey

1. Whenever a through passenger detrains at a station en-route for catching a connecting train, it should not be treated as break journey provided such halt is for less than 24 hours. For example, the holder of a direct ticket from Pune to Jammu Tawi via Dadar travels from Pune to Bombay by any day train a day earlier in order to catch Bombay-Jammu Tawi Express next morning leaving Bombay at 6.25 hours shall not be treated as break journey.

Note :- Break of journey is not permissible on the tickets of certain trains like Rajdhani Express, Shatabdi Express, etc., which have separate all inclusive fare structure on point-to-point basis, and therefore, refund on such partially used tickets is also not admissible.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

2. Passengers are required to have their tickets endorsed. The endorsement shall consist of the Station Code, Station Master's initials and the date.

Note :- Passengers breaking journey and not obtaining the endorsement as prescribed will be treated as persons travelling without a proper ticket and dealt with accordingly.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

3. Passengers breaking the journey en-route except as provided in paragraph (1) above must surrender their tickets at the station where journey is broken. Refund for the untravelled portion on such tickets will be allowed in special circumstances only subject to the condition laid down in Rule 213,4 and provided also that the procedure given in that rule is followed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

4. Break journey shall not be permitted short of the station upto which reservation has been done. If a passenger seeking reservation on through tickets asks for break journey en route it should be clearly indicated on the Requisition form the names of the station where the break journey is requested. Reservation in this case will be done upto break journey station only.

Not sure whether you are aware of this link or not.

http://www.indianrailways.gov.in/Tag0708/index.htm

Almost everything is available in PDF format. You can download them at your laptop so it becomes handy. These PDFs have the Time-Table (Trains At-A-Glance) and other related info about rules, fares, policies, etc...

The timetable of trains change once a year (1 July) and sometimes twice a year. So do not forget to update these PDFs after few months.

Dear Ajaysingh,

You can break your journey at Kopargaon and also, you can resume your journey from Manmad.
---
But if your intention is to travel by 2627, then don't purchase waitlisted ticket under any cirumstances because it would never get confirmed.
-----
If you can start from SBC on Sundays, then you can also take 6502in which it is somewhat easy to get tickets.

Dear Saurabh,

Please go to PRS Counter, because this booking is NOT possible on the Internet.

1.Fill-up the form as Hyderabad to Indore with Resv. upto Dadar. by 2702 or 7032.
2.Fill-up the onward particulars at the end of the Form
as Borivali to Indore by 2961., on the same day you arrive in Dadar. From Dadar you reach by Local Train!!! 2961 doesn't stops in Dadar.

Dear Saurabh,

Any counter which provides Computerised Reservation Facility is also called PRS Counter. PRS is the System under which this Computerised Reservation Facility is provided. PRS means Passenger Reservation System.
--------------------
##Now please look at this:
..
You Queried For Train Number Train Name Date (DD-MM-YYYY) Source Station Destination Station
2702 HUSSAINSAGAR EX 5-10-2008 HYDERABAD DECAN DADAR

Train Type SUPERFAST Distance (kms) 781
All units are in Rupees(Rs.)


Class -- Sleeper
Base Fare 277
Reservation Charges 20
Superfast Charges 20
Other Charges 0
Total Amount 317
----------------------------
You Queried For Train Number Train Name Date (DD-MM-YYYY) Source Station Destination Station
2961 AVANTIKA EXP 5-10-2008 MUMBAI CENTRAL INDORE JN BG

Train Type SUPERFAST Distance (kms) 829
All units are in Rupees(Rs.)


Class -- Sleeper
Base Fare 285
Reservation Charges 20
Superfast Charges 20
Other Charges 0
Total Amount 325
======================
##The total distance is coming to 781+823 (**ex.DDR)=1604Kms.
When you purchase a direct ticket from Hyderabad to Indore via DR (**CR)/DDR(**WR), you have to pay Rs.401+20+20+20=rS.461/-
which means a saving of Rs.317+Rs.325=642 minus Rs.461 = Rs.181/-
============
##As I said earlier, this THROUGH BOOKING is NOT available on IRCTC.

Hi Srinivasa,

I had gone to Bangalore(EAST) reservation counter. I was told there that I have to resume my journey from Kopargaon only if I am breaking it at Kopargoan and I can not resume it from Manmad. Not sure if that guy was having the right information as that reservation center is quite new and person handling it didn't seem to know much about reservation rules...

At present I have a ticket in 2AC (in Karnataka Exp) with confirmed reservation up to Kopargaon for 23rd of Dec and onward journey on the same train on 25th of Dec but onward ticket is waitlisted(Waitlist 4,5&6). Still tickets are available from Manmad to delhi in Karnataka Exp. Can I still cancel the onward jouney reservation and get it from Manmad?

Any pointer would be very helpful. And thanks for your valuable inputs.

Regards

Ajay

Dear Ajay Singh,

Since you have already purchased the Through Ticket upto NDLS and also made the onward reservation, now you cannot cancel the onward journey. If you do that you will have to forego your Confirmed Reservation also!!!

Dear Ajay Singh,

If you are still interested to perform journey from Manmad to New Delhi by 2627 on 25th, you purchase fresh ticket and ignore the old ticket.
--------
If I am correct, your WL Status should be RLWL. Can you please confirm?

srinivas ji

thanx for quick response once again.
still i m having few doubts.
for this kind of ticket do i need to have other kind of reservaton form or normal reservation form will work,because in that reservation form train no., train name, journey date source and destination will be written once only!!so plz tell me if my understanding is right,

Source Station Hyderabad
Destination station Indore
(Suppose)journey date is 06/10/08

1.is this reservation can be done thru normal reservation form.
2.what will u call this reservation in technical term or railway term

so where should i write for mumbai (Via) in the ticket and also tell this kinda of tickets called as what name (blank paper ticket,breack journey or some other ticket....)

Also i ve to stay there for around 8 10hrs and catch any connecting train from any of the suburban station of mumbai.


thanx for clearing my doubts n helping me
