TDR is ‘Ticket Deposit Receipt’. TDR is for the passengers who want to get a refund as they have not travel by train after booking the ticket. There might be many reasons for the passenger to not travel by train such as

  • Train cancelled by Railways
  • Train running late by more than three hours
  • Difference of Fare in case proper coach not attached
  • AC Failure
  • Travelled without proper ID proof
  • Wrongly charged by TTE
  • Party partially travelled
  • Passenger not travelled

In any one of above case, a passenger is allowed to avail  TDR filing facility and get the refund amount of the ticket they booked.
