The cancelation of rail tickets shall not apply to Shramik special trains or to the 15 special passenger trains which started on 12 May.

The Ministry stated that the process of canceling tickets for special trains would remain unaffected and fixed as notified by the Government.

The Railways stated that, with effect from 13 May, the IRCTC had begun to take the destination address of all passengers who booked tickets on the 15 special interstate trains. The move will help in the Covid-19 contact tracking, if necessary later.

It stated that, on a group ticket, if one passenger is found to be unfit to travel and all other passengers on the same PNR do not wish to travel, full refund shall be granted to all passengers in that case.

The Ministry says that since 12 May IRCTC has been selling rail tickets worth Rs 45.3 crore. More than 2.3 lakh passengers have made special train bookings to date. In a late night move on Wednesday, the Railway Board has released a directive imposing waiting lists for journeys, not only on the present, but also on all its upcoming services, from 22 May onwards. For tickets booked from 15 May on trips starting from 22 May, the new guideline changes come into effect.
