Where/how can a heart patient (fitted with pace maker since 2008 in Govt. Hospital) obtain the necessary certificate for availing railway concession for travel to Hyderabad/Vellore for a check up & treatment? Thanks.

you need to get a certificate from the hospital authorities asking the patient to come for treatment. only then can the concession be availed. after you get the certificate, you need to approach prs with application and prescribed duly filled form to get the discount.

26th August booking will start friend!! Depends on from where the train starts (source) as well. If it starts the previous day and arrives at your station the midnight of the next day, then the booking for that train will start on 25th August!!

I plan to escort a heart patient fitted with pacemaker (age 50+) from Kolkata to Hyderabad. What documents do I need for him to avail travel concession. Where to get the form and who issues it?

A VERY NOBLE GESTURE on the part of both YOU & YOUR FAMILY, sir. I take my hats off to philanthropists like you. Now let me chip in with a little bit of info on my part. As per 307 of TAAG 2012, heart patients travelling ALONE or WITH ESCORTS are eligible for the following concessions :
75% in II,SL,First,3A,CC and 50% IN 1AC and 2AC
Purpose of travel : On being called by some recognized hospital for heart surgery and return
required for availing concession : Certificate in prescribed form issued by Officer-in-Charge of the concerned recognised hospital .
Sir, I hope you will find this useful.

Durga Puja starts on 10 October, 2013 evening (Maha Sashti) and ends on 14 October, 2013 (Bijoya Dashami) with the immersion of the idol. The Puja pandals will be crowded from at least 2 days before the actual start of the ceremony.
Railway reservation starts, I am told, 60 days before the journey (please cross check.
In case you hve not seen the Puja earlier in Kolkata, it will be a memorable experience.

Friends I would be traveling to H.Nizammudin from YPR tonight. I would be bringing you all some live pics and updates. Again I would be traveling from H.Nizamuddin to Madgaon on 8/7(monday) by Goa SK. From VSG to YPR I will be traveling on VSG MAS Express on 11/7(Thursday). Hope to capture Dudhsagar which will be in its full flow.
My original plan was to travel to Badrinath via Haridwar but as you all know the conditions there I canceled that trip and decided to convert this into a monsoon rail fanning trip. Thanks.

Dudhsagar will present a fantastic view because of monsoon. I enjoyed the view a few years ago while travelling from VSG to YPR. Enjoy your stay at Goa.
