    To cancel a train ticket online through the IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation) website or mobile app, follow these steps:

    1. Login to Your IRCTC Account:
      • Visit the official IRCTC website (www.irctc.co.in) or open the IRCTC mobile app.
      • Log in to your IRCTC account using your username and password.
    2. Access the 'Booked Tickets' Section:
      • After logging in, go to the 'Booked Tickets' or 'My Transactions' section. This section contains the list of your booked train tickets.
    3. Select the Ticket to Cancel:
      • Find the train ticket that you wish to cancel and select it.
    4. Initiate the Cancellation Process:
      • On the ticket details page, look for the 'Cancel Ticket' option. Click on it to initiate the cancellation process.
    5. Confirm Cancellation:
      • The system will ask you to confirm the cancellation. Review the details of your ticket to ensure it's the correct one. If you're sure about canceling, proceed to confirm the cancellation.
    6. IRCTC Cancellation Charges:
      • Cancellation charges and refund rules vary depending on the time of cancellation, class of travel, and the type of ticket (sleeper, AC, etc.). The cancellation charges will be displayed during the cancellation process.
    7. Cancellation Confirmation:
      • After confirming the cancellation, you will receive a cancellation confirmation message, and your ticket will be canceled.
    8. Refund Process:
      • The refund amount will be processed according to IRCTC's refund rules. The refund is credited back to the same account or payment method you used to book the ticket. The time it takes to receive the refund can vary, and it may take several days.
    Please note that IRCTC's refund rules are subject to change, so it's essential to check the latest cancellation and refund policies on the IRCTC website before canceling your ticket. Additionally, you should cancel your ticket well in advance of the train's departure to be eligible for a refund and to avoid higher cancellation charges.
