Indian Railway: Upgrade to higher class without paying extra money
I hope many of us know that there is an option of “Auto Upgradation” that allow you to travel in higher class without paying any extra money in case there are vacant seats in higher class.
It does not work most of the times because during high season time there are no vacant seats available.
If you are traveling in off-season then the chances of getting free up-gradation to a high class is very high.
Now the question is how can you apply for the option “Auto Upgradation”?
While booking tickets online (http://irctc.co.in), there is an option “Auto Upgradation”. You can opt this option.
While booking tickets using Indian railway form, there is an option “Auto Upgradation”. You can opt this option by writing “Yes” in the highlighted box.
At last, there is no risk in opting this free gift from Indian Railway.
Happy Journey. Thanks.
