  1. I booked a rail ticket for me using irctc vide PNR no. 2562870011 (Transaction ID: 0480387060) for journey from DMO-LTT on September 2, 2012 for the journey on September 22, 2012 in Train No. 11072, the only train plying to Mumbai from nearest station from my home town. Unfortunately, I could not travel and i had to file TDR on 16/09/2012. I was informed by irctc that refund will come within 90 days.

    After 4 months of follow up, the status of TDR is showing as regretted. Please hold to get the refund.
    I filed the complaint in Consumer Court also but. Still not got any response. Please help me to get some solution.
