Upgrade to Higher Class when Vacant..
Those who reserve train tickets online can now upgrade them to higher classes if there are vacant berths, until now, in Southerrailn Railway only those who book tickets at reservation counters were allowed to convert the tickets by paying the required additional amount.
Whenever vacant accommodation is available in upper class, the same can be now allotted to passengers holding confirmed lower class tickets on collection of difference in fare through excess fare ticket by on board ticket checking staff. Passengers who wish to upgrade their online confirmed ticket will have to contact TTE of their coach for this with confirmed ticket and Railway approved original ID proof. If vacant berths are available in upper class TTE of lower class will direct the passenger to upper class after making necessary documentation and verification of ID. Difference in payment will have to be paid to upper class TTE by cash.
