1. Whenever a through passenger detrains at a station en-route for catching a connecting train, it should not be treated as break journey provided such halt is for less than 24 hours.

Break of journey is not permissible on the tickets of certain trains like Rajdhani Express, Shatabdi Express, etc., which have separate all inclusive fare structure on point-to-point basis, and therefore, refund on such partially used tickets is also not admissible.

|Note :- |
Passengers breaking journey and not obtaining the endorsement as prescribed will be treated as persons travelling without a proper ticket and dealt with accordingly.
