Folks, please enlighten me on the "Child Berth" option that's selected (ticked) on default in IRCTC. What should one do if one wants a berth for the child at full adult fare, untick it or leave it as it is?
April 23. Anyways got the answer to it. Seems one has to leave it as it is (i.e., ticked) for getting a full berth but at adult fare and untick it to avail of half fare but at the cost of sharing the berth with unknown or share with an adult berth of the group. Effectively IR mowing down passengers here, but one way it's good in that those half berths were being garnered by TTEs.
