For the benefit of train passengers, Indian Railways has launched a new facility (refunds.indianrail.gov.in) to enable them to monitor the refund status of their cancelled tickets in real time. IRCTC is the e-ticketing arm of Indian Railways. If passengers have cancelled their tickets, they can key in the Passenger Name Record (PNR) numbers of the tickets to know the refund status. “This facility is to promote transparency in the system and is extremely helpful for those awaiting refunds,” news agency Press Trust of India quoted Ved Prakash, director of publicity of Railway Board, as saying.
Train tickets can be cancelled across ticket counters as well as IRCTC website and through railway enquiry number 139, according to the Press Trust of India.
The website – refunds.indianrail.gov.in – has been developed by the Centre For Railway Information Systems (CRIS), which maintains one of the most popular Indian Railways websites www.indianrail.gov.in.
