Why is the railways deducting cancellation fees even on wait-listed tickets booked online????
The tkt is automatically cancelled. If it is a cash paid tkt then even on WL tkts one can travel in unreserved coach.
when money has been recd by railways, via credit card, why this dual standard?
I had a long distance tkt and had informed the railways at the time of bkg that i would board at Shornur. I had Alwaye-Mumbai. Due to a change in plans , I boarded at Alwaye, itself.
The TTE insisted that I must get down and come by unreserved coach till Shornur or pay penalty. I was baffled.
He said there may be a pax upto Shornur. How can the railways book a second pax, when they have collected full money for the distance??? It is worse than pvt buses operating with stools for excess paxes.
