Break of Journey Rules


Many of us traveling long distance may wish to break our journey to stop over at a tourist destination, meet friends or take care of some official work.For the convenience of such passengers, Railways offer the Break Journey facility. To help you make the most of this facility, we have listed a few guidelines below :


You can avail of the Break Journey facility if you hold a single journey ticket (reserved or unreserved) for distances more than 500 kms. You can break your journey at any station enroute after travelling 500 kms. from the starting station. For instance if you have a ticket from Howrah to Mumbai CST, you can break your journey at any station enroute, once you have travelled 500 kms. From Howrah – may be at Bilaspur or at Nagpur.


Tickets upto 1000 km.--- One break journey

Tickets more than 1000 km. --- Two break journeys.  


During the break of your journey, you can stay 2 days at the intended station excluding the day of arrival and day of departure.


Make sure your ticket is endorsed by the Station Manager/Ticket Collector or any authorized person at the station of break journey.This endorsement must clearly indicate the date, time and train number by which you have arrived. Onward journey without this endorsement your ticket will not be valid and you will be penalized.

This facility is not available for passengers traveling by Rajdhani or Shatabdi Express or Jan Shatabdi Express Wherever a through passenger detrains at a station enroute for catching a connecting train, it should not be treated as break journey provided such halt is for less than 24 hours. Passengers breaking the journey enroute except as provided as above must surrender their tickets at the station where the journey is broken. Refund of untravelled portion on tickets will be allowed in special circumstances only subject to the condition laid down in Refund rules published in this Time Table and provided also that the procedure given under that rule is followed.

Please note: Break journey shall not be permitted short of the station up to which reservation has been done. If a passenger seeking reservation on through tickets asks for break journey enroute it should be clearly indicated on the requisition form the names of the station where the break journey is requested. Reservation in this case will be done up to break journey station only
