Hi.My mother is a cancer patient and taking regular treatment at CMC Vellore.We are from Hyderabad.Today i booked ticket with form 1/17 under Cancer Concession quota in this train.I don't have a photocopy of the concession certificate issued by CMC Hospital.I submitted the form in the station.What should i do?I have the online appointment letter of the Hospital.
Will that be enough?Or should i go to the same clerk at the station tomorrow and ask her to fish out the certificate and take a xerox copy of it?

i have the original 1/18(return journey) concession certificate as i didn't book the return ticket under cancer quota concession.i booked an e ticket on venkatadri exp after coming home as they said the certificate cannot be used to book between an intermediate station(chittoor) and hyderabad(home station) but its easier for us to come back on venkatadri exp than sabari exp.i am attaching the 1/18 return journey concession certificate for an idea.can this be shown as a valid proof in any way?

i had asked the executive at the booking counter twice sir,i had a feeling that she was a new comer.previously also my parents went but they said they were never asked for a xerox copy.this is the first time today and the clerk whom i first approached told me to get xerox copies.i didn't know why.later as her counter was busy,i went to this person who booked my tickets.when i showed her the xerox,she took both the original and the xerox copies.i persistently asked if its okay if she keeps both,she just kept saying no no,she didnt even give a convincing answer but when i came home i got the doubt again and posted this as a query.i understand i have been foolish enough to not have got a clear clarification then and there at the counter itself.still...thanks a lot for your suggestions sir,i will try to go to the counter...
and ask her again and ask for a xerox copy tomorrow.

sir, carry this unused concession certificate. tomorrow, go to the tte lobby and discuss the your case. tell them how the person at booking counter kept both the original and xerox copies while booking and ask them how to proceed with the journey.
i am very sure people will empathize with your case, dont worry all be fine !!
god bless !!

    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,...
