The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has clarified doubts about ticket cancellations.

Refund amount will be credited to the user account used for booking of e-tickets automatically. No charges are deducted by the Railways in case of train cancellation. Train cancelled by Railways can be seen on National Train Enquiry System ( NTES ).
