Passengers have welcomed the move of the Railway Ministry to increase the number of lower berths allotted in long-distance trains to senior citizens and women.
Six lower berths in sleeper and three in air-conditioned coaches have been reserved for senior citizens, pregnant women and women over 45 years old who are travelling alone. So far, it was four lower berths in sleeper and two in air-conditioned compartments.
The Ministry’s notification, sources said, would mean that nearly 100 berths would be reserved for them in trains with 13 sleeper and 6 air-conditioned compartments.
