Why only 16 characters allowed for a person's name in the ticket? Is it because it is enough to match the name since more important is the face that has to match on the ID? Well I am wondering how it helps for people having long names and if they have to reimburse the travel expenses from the govt department or LTA in private companies etc?

Persons having long names use only the first letter of their names, such as for me I always use A K Deshpande because full name wont fill up in the space.

I am planning to travel in Chair Car train with my son who is 4 years old. As per the Indian railways, my son does not require a ticket and so the seat is not provided. It is difficult to carry him on the lap for 5 to 6 hrs since he is grown up and is heavy to carry that long. Is it ok if i book the ticket for him mentioning his age as 5 Yrs? Is this illegal? Is there any railway rule that prohibits booking a ticket for 4 yrs old? I mean the Indian Govt. might have left out the children from being charged due to economic considerations for the people but if i am paying for the seat and travelling shouldn't that be ok?
pointing to Indian Railways or pointing to the source of information will be appreciated.

No issue.
U can book a ticket indicating age as 5.
1 yr difference would not have made a great difference specially when u showing over age and buying the ticket.

    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...
