In terms of provisions contained in Schedule III of Railway Servants (Pass) Rules, 1986 (revised edition-1993) eligible student son/daughter of railways employees are granted 3 full sets or 6 half sets of School Pass in a year. These Passes at present are not valid for journey in the Duronto Express Trains.

The issue regarding making School Pass valid for journey in Duronto Express Trains has been considered by Board and it has now been decided that School Pass issued to eligible son/daughter of railway employees may be made valid for journey on Duronto Express Trains, subject to “Normal Duty Pass Quota”. The condition of entitlement shall be the same as on privilege pass of railway employees.
3. An endorsement as “Valid for journey in the entitled class of Duronto Express Trains:, shall be made on the School Pass by the Pass issuing authority.
4. This issues with the concurrence of Finance and Commercial Directorates of Ministry of Railways.
