Railways Changed reservation rules, seats will be available five mins before departure
Indian Railways


New Delhi: The Indian Railways declared the changed reservation rules which will be effective from today (October 10, 2020). Now the seats will be available on the train 5 minutes before departure. The Indian Railways has decided to restore the pre-COVID system of preparing the second reservation chart half an hour before the departure time.
This is one of the big decisions taken by the Indian Railways. Now people can take the seat even five minutes before the train leaves the station. 
“As per the request of Zonal Railways for ensuring convenience of rail passengers, the matter has been examined and it has been decided that the second reservation chart shall be prepared at least 30 minutes before scheduled or rescheduled time of departure of the train," the statement said.
"Accordingly, the ticket booking facility both online and on PRS ticket counters shall be available, before preparation of the second chart. CRIS will make necessary modifications in the software accordingly so as to restore this provision with effect from October 10,” it said.
Just like pre-COVID times, the 1st reservation chart will be prepared 4 hours before the departure of the train while the 2nd reservation chart will be prepared between 30 minutes to 5 minutes before departure of the train. Until the second reservation chart is prepared, passengers can book train tickets. Tickets can also be canceled during this time, as per the provisions of the refund rules. If a seat, which was booked in the first chart of reservation, become vacant owing to cancellation, can be booked through PRS counters and online till the second chart is prepared.
