Supreme court order on waiting for E-ticket | Update on Waiting E-ticket
But Recently Supreme Court Of India “cleared the petition of the Delhi High Court challenging the order in which the Ministry of Railways was asked to abolish the distinction between the waiting ticket for counter and the internet”
But In This Time Passenger who have Counter Ticket can Board The Train And Not Claim for Seat. And if you have E-ticket Can’t Board the train Because it will Automatically Cancel In Case Of No Confirmation.
A Bench Headed By “Justice Madan B.Lokur Has Dismissed The Appeal Moved By The Railways Against The Delhi High Court Order in July 2014”.
Delhi High Court Asked In July 2014 The Railway To Ensure That The E-Ticket Buyers Should Not Be Less Privileged In Any Way. The Delhi High Court Petitioned Through Their Representative lawyer Vishwa Kumar Jha.
High Court Orders To Removing Distance Between counter ticket and online ticket within Six Month. And High Court also asked the Indian railway to ensure that the broker and agent can not book the ticket using a fake name.
Delhi high court sad in it’s just “the waiting ticket taken through the Internet is canceled in case of non-confirmation. In such a situation, the tactics people use to get the seat might seem futile. While the possibility persists that people with certainly confirmed tickets might not board the train for some reason, in such a situation, those seats are to be reserved for those who are waiting”
And the High court also said in its order ” There is no legal provision that gives paper tickets more preference than an e-ticket”.
