Mumbai. Indian Railways provides a variety of facilities to passengers ranging from the online facility of train ticket booking for travel at any destination across India. With the help of IRCTC website, you can book and cancel train tickets sitting at home. You can also claim for a refund by filing TDR on the canceled ticket. But do you know that you can claim a refund if you miss your train? According to the information given on the railway website erail.in, if the train by which you are going to travel, if that train misses you and you are not able to travel, then in this situation you can get the ticket money back. For this, you will have to claim for a ticket refund which will be given to you under Indian Railway Rule. On the other hand, if you travel in any other train with this ticket after missing the train, then the Railways will not allow it. This means that if caught by this TTE, you can also be charged a fine. Along with this, the Railways can also take legal action. If you want to travel then you have to book another reserve ticket.
what to do to get refund
If you want to get a refund after missing the train, then you should not cancel the train ticket, rather you can file TDR (ticket deposit receipt). In this, you will also have to mention the reasons for not traveling. If you cancel the ticket after chart preparation then a refund will not be available. You can file TDR within one hour of the departure of the train from the charting station. Refunds cannot be taken by filing TDR from any other station.
