Indian Railways has confirmed that they haven’t made any changes in their rules regarding booking tatkal
tickets or refunds from 1 July.
They say that it’s some hoax that has been circulating and getting published on social media platforms.
Unluckily, we too fell in that trap! News content is being forwarded on WhatsApp groups and other social media platforms and to this, Indian Railways has said:
“This news is totally incorrect and baseless. A section of media has also published the news without verifying it from authorised sources of the Indian Railway system and it has created confusion among the minds of the people.”
So guys there is no change in the rules and everything is exactly the same as it has been for the past few years. Mobile tickets are not becoming mandatory on Shatabdi and Rajdhani express trains. Neither will you get any refund on canceling tatkal tickets. No extra coaches are being attached to express trains!
How we wish at least some of the hoax had been true!
