27 May 2016 Current Affairs: The wait-listed and reservation against cancellation ( RAC ) train ticket holders can cancel their tickets online or by dialling 139. 

Earlier only confirmed ticket holders could cancel their tickets through 139 service and IRCTC website . Now the facility can be used for cancellation of RAC and wait-listed tickets also. 

Online cancellation through 139 will be permitted only four hours before the scheduled departure of the train in case of confirmed tickets and upto half an hour before the scheduled departure of the train in case of RAC and wait-listed tickets. 

While booking tickets was a problem, cancelling those booked tickets and getting refunds were more problematic. So now cancellation of tickets has been made easy through introduction of this facility, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu .Besides the option of cancellation of tickets at the counter is also available for passengers. 

The refund amount can be collected from the station where the journey commenced or nearby notified satellite Passenger Reservation System location .

The facility will be available on the mobile number which was given at the time of booking.
