For the first time I came to know that to undertake a circular journey on a train, we have to apply for the same in a prescribed format. I was under the impression that we can obtain the circular train ticket on the general reservation form format and the booking clerk shall help us in filling the same with train name and number. But what I feel is that with every time table released each year, the Railways must also mention about this circular train service in the first page itself.

Thanks for your comment Mr. Mohan, I think you thought differently, there is no special train for Circular Journey purpose. You can buy a ticket Sleeper and above class for max six passengers in any Express, Super fast and above trains for any route across India.

This ticket (Circular journey) helps to save money compare to reservation from general reservation form :). This ticket is calculated based on overall kms from departure till destination. You can break the journey as you like but you just need to make sure that berth available and book them in advance before break journey for few days.

You may contact respective Station Master on this who can help you in detail about Circular journey ticket procedure and its detail + advantage.
