Railways has also put down specific guidelines on how to transfer a confirmed ticket.

According to an Indian Railways statement, a passenger can transfer his/her railway ticket to other members of the family including father, mother, brother, sister, son, daughter, husband and wife by making a written request 24 hours before the scheduled departure of the train.

Students of recognised educational institutions will need the approval of the head of the institution to transfer the confirmed ticket. The head can make a written request 48 hours before the scheduled departure and the reservation can be transferred to any other student of the same institute.

If the passengers are members of a marriage party, any person deemed to be the head of the group can make a request 48 hours before the scheduled departure of the train and the reservation made in the name of any member of the marriage party be transferred to any other person.

Such requests will, however, be granted only once.

The Chief Reservation Supervisor of important stations are authorised by Railway Administration to permit the change of name of a passenger, Business Today reported.
