The Indian Ministry of Railways has issued a clarification regarding travel entitlement on Passes/PTOs (Privilege Ticket Orders) that are integrated with Class and Booking Codes issued by the Commercial Directorate. In a circular (RBE No. 71/2023) dated 17th May 2023, it was noted that there was ambiguity regarding the specific entitlement for CC/FC (Chair Car/First Class) Coaches attached to Special Trains on Special Charges and Suvidha Special Trains. To address this, Note No.2 of Annexures I & II of the previous circular has been modified.
