We almost buy the train ticket in advance before boarding the train. But many times it is seen that for some reason our trip is canceled. In that case, we may want to cancel and refund the train ticket.
Fortunately, you can cancel or return your train ticket online from the E-Ticketing website or Railway App. Here, I’ll write about how to return a train ticket in Bangladesh. Let’s know more in detail.

- Log into Rail Sheba App or e-ticket website first;
- Go to the Purchase History option by clicking on your name;
- Click on the Refund button on the right side of the ticket list;

However, that if your online ticket is printed from the counter before the date of departure, it cannot be refunded through the online refund system. In that case, it can be refunded only from the station counter.
