New Delhi: In a bid to make rail journey more convenient and pocket friendly, the Indian Railways has decided to do away with extra service charge levied on ticket booking through debit/credit card.
The new rule, effective from Wednesday (June 1) says that Railways will not charge the additional Rs 30 as service charge for tickets booked through debit/credit cards.
Earlier, many passengers would prefer giving cash for tickets bought at PRS counters because it would help them save those extra money on service charge.
Effective June 1, the Indian Railways will have many changes in its existing rules and regulations that will benefit millions of passengers. The main highlight of these changes are refund on Tatkal ticket, confirmed ticket facility for train passengers among others.
