Indian Railway Waiting Ticket: Many times it will happen when your waiting ticket does not get confirmed. In such a situation, that ticket is canceled by the Railways. In the name of ticket cancellation, a huge charge is deducted from the passengers in the name of convenience fee. There has been a big change regarding this rule of waiting and RAC tickets. According to the new rule, now passengers will not have to pay heavy fees for wait waiting or cancellation of RAC tickets.

Railways changed the rules

Making a major change in its rules, Railways has decided to remove additional charges for waiting and cancellation of RAC tickets. That is, if you get the waiting ticket canceled or it gets cancelled, then you will not be charged additional charges in the name of convenience fee. According to the new rules of Railways, now Rs 60 will be charged from passengers for canceling their tickets.

Why did the rules change?

In fact, Jharkhand social activist Sunil Kumar Khandelwal had complained about the huge amount charged by the Railways for canceling waiting tickets. He complained that Railways is earning huge amount only in the name of ticket cancellation charges. He explained with the example that a passenger had bought a ticket for Rs 190. The ticket was a waiting ticket which was canceled by the Railways itself if it was not confirmed. After the ticket was canceled by the Railways, he received only Rs 95, the remaining amount was recovered in the name of convenience fee. After this complaint, IRCTC and Railways changed their decision. Railways has decided that only a cancellation fee of Rs 60 per passenger fixed by the Railways will be levied on such tickets.

Changed the water bottle rule

Let us tell you that recently Railways changed the rules related to water bottles provided to passengers in Vande Bharat trains. Railways decided to give 500 ml bottles to passengers instead of 1 litre. Passengers will be given an extra 500 ml bottle free of cost as per their requirement. Railways has done this with the aim of saving water.
