About guard chart

Pakistan Railways print a detailed list of passengers reserved in the system before the departure of the train and conductor guard available in train verifies those passengers with the help of guard chart. At most of the locations, guard chart is produced 2 hours before the departure of the train. The available seats in the guard chart then are reserved at the current counters available at railway station. At some remote locations guard chart is produced over the night due to the limited office timings. For example, Shalimar Express starts its journey from 6:00AM so its guard chart is produced at night 8:00PM so online user can not cancel his seat after 8:00PM of previous date. Passengers who does not have any reservation or ticket, can contact with the conductor guards to get seats during the journey.
