In case of cancellation of trains and late running of trains by more than three hours, full refund of fare is permitted to passenger holding reserved tickets, subject to the condition that the ticket is surrendered within the stipulated periods. 

Maintenance of law and order in the Railway premises is the statutory responsibility of the State Governments concerned. Railway through Railway protection Force (RPF) supplements the efforts of the State Governments to ensure smooth running of train services. Punitive action is taken by the State Police (Civil Police and Government Railway Police) against the agitators under various laws of the land. RPF also register cases under the provisions of the Railways Act. Besides, Railways are maintaining close coordination with the civil and police authorities of the State Governments at Railway Board, Zonal and Divisional level to ensure smooth running of train services.
