I have booked a Sleeper ticket of My Father ( who is a senior Citizen) from Dadar to Surat in Ahmedabad Passenger on 18th December.
As per the rule I was expecting 50% Concession in Sleeper Class reservation . Surprisingly IRCTC charged full amount of Rs.140/- despite declaring him Senior Citizen.
What could be the reason. Can anybody explain.
is it a tatkal reservation?
Passenger trains do not have concessions
Your father is eligible for 40% concession. This being a passenger train the concession does not apply.
As per Indian Rail, the fare chart is as below, concession came as very minimal.

Hauled by BRC WAG-5P...
BL WCAM-1 are out of service now...!!
Really thats Bad new
miss u champ... :(
Guess earlier they were retrofitted to run on AC only so they also have been made to retire??
no chance life hi codal hua hai
Retrofitted Sirf jinki life bachi hai unki hi karte hai jaise 2 WCM6 Ko KYN Ne Pure AC kiya ya Jo Josef EMU Rake Thhe unhe Retro Kiya hai
WCAM 1 ka bhi kiya one of them /blog/post/692683
WCAM1 ki idea nahi but
Yeh Livery change hua tha after Retrofitting, IRFCA me bhi aap dekhsakte ho..Jo loco number gallery me hai.
Check this PIC and written in front of Loco AC Working /blog/post/851907
. Such livery WCAM1 were retrofitted to AC working in earlier days after DC-AC conversion in WR.
Sad news, RIP the legends :(
Yes u r right....all WCAM-1 (Except 10-15 starting models)....Was converted to work in Pure AC working only....
Before ac'fication of WR I.e, before February 2012 also...some WCAM-1 were converted to work in AC working only...and remaining were Converted to Pure AC working till Mid of 2013
Just two WCAM-1 #21851 & #21852 was left working on both DC-AC power and the reason was for the PUNE bound train....but as all WCAM-2 were transferred from BL to KYN... WCAM-2 started hauling trains from PUNE...and that ends the journey of WCAM-1 from PUNE.
Arrives on PF #2 At VALSAD(BL)
Coz on PF #1 Gujarat Queen Departs
