Come April and passengers could avail the opportunity of travelling in Rajdhani or Shatabdi trains even if they have booked tickets for other mail or express trains for the same destinations.

The Railways is launching a new scheme from April 1 under which waitlisted passengers can get confirmed accommodation in the next alternative train if they opt for it at the time of booking. According to the scheme, `Vikalp', there will be no extra charge taken from the passenger or any refund provided for the fare difference.The scheme aims to utilise vacant berths in premier trains, including Rajdhani, Shatabdi, Duronto and other special services such as Suvidha trains, on major routes.

Describing the scheme as a "passenger friendly" move to provide confirmed accommodation to waitlisted passengers, a railway ministry official said, "We aim to achieve the twin objectives of providing confirmed accommodation to waitlisted passengers and ensure optimal utilisation of available accommodation by this scheme."

Currently, the scheme is being run on six routes including Delhi-Lucknow, Delhi-Jammu and Delhi-Mumbai sectors on a pilot basis. The Railways foregoes about Rs 7,500 crore annually in cancellation refunds.
