Can any member suggest as to what is the best way to get lower berths for senior citizens ???
I am trying to book a SL ticket for my parents both of whom are senior citizens.I am also travelling with them . The seat availability is 73. On giving option of LB,MB & UB , I ended up getting 2 middle berths and one upper berths.
Then i tried again but still did not get one lower berth, this despite so many seats available !!! Is there any predefined logic to this???

Reservation फॉर्म में सिर्फ सीनियर सिटीजन के नाम लिखो लोअर बर्थ मिल जाएगा । नॉन सीनियर सिटीजन के लिये दूसरे फर्म से टिकट लो।

Reservation form mein lower berth request ko tick karo agar lower seat available hogi to mil jayegi. lower berth jyadatar senior citizens ko allot hoti hai. agar aap apne family ke 6 members ke saath travel karte ho to aapko 1,2 ya usse jyada lower berths mil sakti hai.
