Indian Railways deduct some amount if you cancel a 'confirmed', 'RAC', or 'waiting' train ticket. The deduction amount varies based on the timing of ticket cancellation.

Besides, Indian Railways' cancellation charges are also dependent on the 'type' of the ticket--AC first, AC-chair car, second class, etc.

Here's all you need to know about Indian Railways ticket cancellation refund rules:

1. In case of cancellation of confirmed tickets (more than 48 hours advance of the scheduled departure of a train)

  • 200 for AC 2-Tier/ first class
  • 180 for AC 3-Tier/AC Chair car, AC-3 Economy
  • 60 for Second class

2. If a passenger cancels a confirmed ticket less than 48 hours and up to 12 hours before the scheduled departure of the train--

In such a case, cancellation charges will be 25% of the total fare paid (subject to a minimum flat cancellation charge).

3. For cancellation of confirmed tickets less than 12 hours and up to 4 hours before the scheduled departure of the train--

In such a case, cancellation charges will be 50% of the total fare paid but subject to a minimum flat cancellation charge for each class.
