How to get confirmed lower berth for senior citizens

krishna murthy
Senior citizens are given priority of lower berth while traveling in trains by Indian Railways.
But there are times when the lower berth is not available even after requesting for senior citizens during ticket booking.
This makes it difficult for them to travel. But you need not worry.
Here are the rules you should keep in mind while booking a lower berth for senior citizens.
The lower berths are earmarked only for women of 60 years and above, 45 years and above, when they are single or with two passengers.
If there are more than two senior citizens or one is a senior citizen and the other is not a senior citizen, the system will not consider it.
Indian Railways last year suspended concessional of senior citizens to discourage unnecessary travel in view of the coronavirus outbreak.
