Can anyone kindly explain about the "on-line booking/reservation" procedure of Railway ticket? I need to book a ticket for 3 PAX two of whom Two are Sr. Citizens. How do one pay? Is Debit card acceptable?
Where/how can a heart patient (fitted with pace maker since 2008 in Govt. Hospital) obtain the necessary certificate for availing railway concession for travel to Hyderabad/Vellore for a check up & treatment? Thanks.
you need to get a certificate from the hospital authorities asking the patient to come for treatment. only then can the concession be availed. after you get the certificate, you need to approach prs with application and prescribed duly filled form to get the discount.

I understand that Railway Booking can be done 60 days in advance. When can I book for 27 October, 2013? On 26 or 27 or 28 August, 2013. Any suggestion will be helpful.

please take a look at our 2-month availability calender to have an idea on ARP for your train.
26th August booking will start friend!! Depends on from where the train starts (source) as well. If it starts the previous day and arrives at your station the midnight of the next day, then the booking for that train will start on 25th August!!

I plan to escort a heart patient fitted with pacemaker (age 50+) from Kolkata to Hyderabad. What documents do I need for him to avail travel concession. Where to get the form and who issues it? The man is very poor and all his medical expenses have been taken care of by my family so far. Detailed informatin in this regard will be appreciated. Thanks.

A VERY NOBLE GESTURE on the part of both YOU & YOUR FAMILY, sir. I take my hats off to philanthropists like you. Now let me chip in with a little bit of info on my part. As per 307 of TAAG 2012, heart patients travelling ALONE or WITH ESCORTS are eligible for the following concessions :
75% in II,SL,First,3A,CC and 50% IN 1AC and 2AC
Purpose of travel : On being called by some recognized hospital for heart surgery and return

Durga Puja starts on 10 October, 2013 evening (Maha Sashti) and ends on 14 October, 2013 (Bijoya Dashami) with the immersion of the idol. The Puja pandals will be crowded from at least 2 days before the actual start of the ceremony.
Railway reservation starts, I am told, 60 days before the journey (please cross check.
In case you hve not seen the Puja earlier in Kolkata, it will be a memorable experience.
