How to check IRCTC cancel ticket refund status?

         If you book IRCTC ticket online using website or mobile app then you can check your cancel ticket refund status online. IRCTC has given you the facility to book a railway ticket 120 days prior from the date of journey.  But while you have booked a ticket 4 month prior many times you have to change or cancel your plane to go your destination. Many times you will not confirm for your journey. In that conditions people want to cancel their bookings and want their ticket fare back. Therefore you need to cancel your ticket. After cancel your reservation as per railway rule a charge as cancellation charge will deducted from your ticket amount and the rest will credited to the customer's account.

How much time takes to receive cancel ticket refund amount:

          In the mean time a question arise in how many days the refund amount will credited to customer's account? Many people cancel their e-ticket and want their money instantly in their account. But it can not be possible to get refund amount instantly, because it takes a few days to reflect on your account. Although railway say that the amount will be reflected on customer's account within 2-3 business days, many times it takes 5-7 days. So my personal opinion is that you should wait 5-7 days to receive your refund amount. You can check the refund status by log in to your IRCTC account. The all the details about your cancel ticket preserve on your account. You can check when the ticket was cancelled, how much money will refund, what is the current status of your refund etc.

What about the IRCTC failed transaction :

         Many times while you are attempting to book a railway ticket on IRCTC website the amount of the ticket debited from your account but ticket not booked or failed. In that condition what will happen of our debited amount? How can we receive our failed transaction amount? These questions are arise many times. Firstly, while your transaction failed go to your booked ticket history section and check if your ticket is booked or not? Sometimes the ticket booked and shows on your booked ticket history even your transaction failed. So you should check your booked ticket history first. If there is not find your ticket then you can check it failed transaction history. Here you find the failed ticket list and their refund status. Sometimes the status shows wrong because bank do not give information about posting of refund amount to customer's account to IRCC. 
         If such situation happens with you then don't worry the ticket amount will be credited to your account within 5-7 days or before. Any time while your transaction failed don't think about your debited amount it will automatically credited to your account.
