Need some help!
I need to book a ticket for a family member on 12620 Matsyagandha Superfast 3A/2A for April 25th. Now my question is, how do I avail the Senior Citizen quota? Do I need to mention it explicitly or will it be auto-allotted as per the quota?
as soon as the age is mentioned, if it is above 60 for gens and 3 for ladies, senior citizen quota will be applicable..
Thanks. Any possible way of ascertaining if tickets are available in SS quota?
For SS, IR dont have any separate quota, only discounted fare is applicable. For Male 60 or above 40% of base fare & for female 58 and above 50% of base fare provided as discount. Also mentioning age is not sufficient to get the discounts. You have to click in senior citizen box for each SS passenger asking for discount at the time of booking through IRCTC online portal. Also in PRS form you have to put a tick mark in the SS discount column to get the discount. Also this discounts are applicable against producing age proofs at the time of travelling to TTE.
