    To cancel a train ticket booked at a counter in India, you would typically need to follow these steps:

    1. Visit the Counter:
      • Go to the railway station where you originally purchased the ticket. Locate the ticket counter or reservation office.
    2. Submit the Ticket:
      • Present the physical copy of the ticket that you want to cancel to the railway counter staff.
    3. Cancellation Request:
      • Inform the counter staff about your intention to cancel the ticket and provide the necessary details.
    4. Cancellation Fee:
      • Be prepared to pay a cancellation fee. The amount may vary depending on factors like the class of travel, how far in advance you are canceling, and the specific railway rules.
    5. Refund Process:
      • After canceling, you may receive a refund. The refund process may involve the deduction of cancellation charges.
    6. Collect Refund:
      • If applicable, collect the refund amount from the counter. Note that refunds may be provided in cash or through other specified modes, depending on the railway policy.
    It's essential to be aware of the terms and conditions associated with ticket cancellations, including the time frame within which cancellations are allowed without significant deductions. Additionally, cancellation policies can vary based on the type of ticket (sleeper class, AC class, etc.) and the specific rules of the railway zone.
