Cancellation of Trains - Is it passengers fault

I had taken reservation in 12506 - North East Express 2 Months before Journey date. This train got cancelled on the day of journey. Few things here that I want answer for.
1. Direct loss of service charge, cancellation charge, IRCTC charge and credit card service charge, all gone for no fault of passenger. If you have bought ticket from any of the counters then spare one day, due to huge rush these days, to get your ticket cancelled. Shouldn't railway pay penalty for this.
2. Indirect losses. Connecting train/bus booking, if you are going for family tour all hotel bookings and tour bookings needs to be cancelled. Some of them do not refund you money. Is that fair enough.
2. In current rush it is almost impossible to get ticket again. What should passenger do?
This frustrates me... I think railways should pay penalty for train cancellation not passenger. Railway should refund double the cost of the ticket to compensate losses. more  

In most parts of the world it is a practice to clean roads, move garbage at night between 11PM to 6 AM . And it is working well. Propel can move on clean roads and there is no stink on the road. Kunnur more  
True if train in cancelled all passengers should be refunded fully and also compensated additional for such loss. more  
ALL AS FATE DICTATES, HA HA....BUT 'SOME TIME DEAR FRIEND! NEVER ALLWAYS'. FIRST OF ALL, WE HAVE TO BE CLEAR OF 'WHY THE SCHEDULED TRAIN WAS CANCELLED AT THE LAST HOUR' AND SECONDLY, HOW CAN THE RAILWAYS DEPT KNOW WHICH PASSENGER IS TRAVELLING FOR WHAT NECESSITIES? AND FINALLY, WAS ALL ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE JOURNEY MADE THROUGH THE RAILWAY EPT. ??????????????/ YET, IN THE QUEST, THERE IS NO EXPLANATION, IF THE DEPARTMENT HAD ARRANGED A ALTERNATIVE SCHEDULE OR NOT....
So I sincerely feel my Friend, that, it is initially to judge the causes and then if it is proving to be something meaningless, can LAWFULLY CLAIM FOR REIMBURSEMENT! yet! I regret and accept that it could have been really painful then for your kindness! do accept my apology on behalf! more  
If Railway Minister has any brain, this will not happen. Each and every paisa should come back from IRCTC. more
