Delay in TDR Refund

Subject: Cancellation and Refund


Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to bring into your kind gesture that I book my e-ticket (Train no.4005, ticket cost, Rs. 776/-, from Varanasi Jn- NDLS) to travel on 11th April'10. but I could not as the train was late for indefinite period of time (till 1.30 am I was on the platform but it did not reach) so ultimately I had to catch another train.

on 16th April'10 I filied the TDR for Refund & after exhastive correspondences I could get only 50% refund (Rs. 388/- only) on 17th August'10, while as per rules of Indian Railways (reflecting on the Website) if the train is delayed for more than 3 hrs. then the passenger is eligible to get a refund of 100% of the ticket cost (in my case it should have been Rs. 776 in stead of Rs. 388/-). After getting 50% refund again I represented the case & till now no action could take place.

My concern is; if the rules are so clearly spelled out then why there is inordinate delay and the refund amount is not as per the rules. in spite of several requests my concern could not be properly addressed.

therefore I would take liberty to request you to kindly look into the matter to expedite the process to save our energy, time and mistrust on the system.

I am sure this is the right form to share our problems and to get viable solutions.

I have appended some relevant correspondences for your kind perusal, please.

Thanking you,

With Kind regards,

To whomsoever it may concern

I wish to bring into your kind concern that I booked my E-ticket to travel from Varanasi (BSB) to New Delhi (NDLS) for 11th April ’10 (Ticket appended). But unfortunately the train was delayed for indefinite period of time. So ultimately I took another ticket for Garib Rath as I was told on the reservation counter that it’s departure is at 7.30 pm. Regarding cancellation, I was told, as mentioned in the E-ticket, that it can only be done through website. Unfortunately the second train (Garib Rath) also started after six hours from the scheduled departure time and I reached home in the evening of 12th April’10 and due to unusual delay I could not reach to my workplace.

On 13th April’10 when I tried to cancel the ticket it could not be done by giving reason that chart was prepared. But it is illogical as it is very obvious that when I did not change my journey plan & I had to come back by the same train then obviously I would not cancel the ticket. Since the train was delayed and till 2.00 am (till I was on the Railway Platform) it did not arrive then what was the option left for me, who was carrying E-Ticket.

Therefore I would request you to kindly look into the matter & reimburse the total ticket as mental agony and inconvenience cannot be compensated.

Thanking you,

With kind regards,
