How to get confirm seats in Senior citizen quota/Ladies Quota through IRCTC?
Note:- these are new rules, not found in IRI (I didnt got any where on IRI, if it is there then pls ignore it, if not pls update it in FAQ).
1. Let us assume you have two passengers over age of 60 or ladies of age >=45 or one
senior citizens and one lady (age>=45) traveling together.
Downside of this approach is that you may end up booking tickets in different coaches but the advantage is that you will be able to book tickets from the Senior Citizen quota or Lower Berth quota even when the General quota is showing waiting list. Lets look at the following steps.
2. You need to select the source, destination and select the quota as General.
3. Now select your train and select class
4. Now on the screen where you enter passenger information just enter name of the passengers. Make sure you make tick in check box for senior citizen(if they are travelling).
5. Before you go to payment screen you will see the availability in the Senior Citizen quota or Lower Berth quota on your screen. If you see availability is >=2, then you may go ahead and book the ticket for passenger.
More often than not you will get reservations done by using these steps and that too on lower berth quota. Reason is that this quota is applicable only for :
Senior citizen
Senior citizen + female(age>=45) together

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
