I recently trying to book ticket for my mom but it was rlwl wait list which i was not sure will confirm or not so , just by chance i click on senior citizen quota and there 60 seats in available status and a pop up showing for lower berth/senior citizen quota seat female aged 45+ and male 60+ will be eligible …
Luckily my mom at 46 so got confirmed ticket ✌️✌️
So try this things for easy confirmed tickets …
I think irctc change female age from 58 to 45 now this is good

Try on Amazon there showing directly on result page, or IRCTC website you should change quota from general to lower seat/sr. Citizen where you put boarding and dropping stations

This is a feature from IRCTC. I’m using it from quite some time and I’m sure most here are using it. On and off media will write it as news, now I understand the need for it.

12 berths for ladies in every coach is there since many years. 2-3 years ago lower berth quota was added within this quota. one can book berth for even a woman aged below 45 but without chances of lower berth which depends upon availabilty.

Bro this is there for more than 3 years to my knowledge.

the Condtion is
For Male, he should be 60 or above to get both seat and discount under this quota
For Ladies, she should be 45 or more to get only seat / 58 or above to get both seat and discount.

Since the Senior citizen discount has been removed, Male and Female age 60 and 45 above is enough.

Also note the Discount for Male is 40 pct and Female is 50 pct under the senior citizen quota earlier.

Not in all trains.

Many trains running in Tamilnadu was having only 6 berths under Ladies quota and likely it was in Coach S4. Booked many times in many trains. 2 Lower, 2 Middle and 2 Upper in same place.

We can also book Male passenger till the age of 11 under this quota. (Half ticket or full ticket both will apply)..

Thanks.

1. Is the convenience fee refunded when a CNF ticket is cancelled by the passenger?
2. Is the reservation charge+GST refunded when a CNF/3AC ticket is cancelled by the passenger?
3. Do we need to pay the convenience fee/processing fee again when cancelling a CNF ticket?
4. Finally, does the Tatkal Charge+GST get refunded when a TK/3AC WL/RAC is not CNF after chart preparation?

2. No
3. NO addl conv fee/ processing fee at the time of cancellation. Only cancellation charges will be deducted (It will be deducted from IRCTC Ticket Fare – which will not include conv fee and PG chgs).
4.For both Tatkal or General tickets,
RAC – after chart preparation if a passenger cancels RAC ticket, then we will get refund with deduction of 60 per ticket (Cancellation to be done Upto 30 minutes before the scheduled departure of the train irrespective of the distance)
WL – after chart preparation automatically the refund will be initiated by IRCTC to the source account used at the time of booking with deduction of 60 per ticket. (Online Booking)
WL – after chart preparation the Original ticked to be handed over to the nearest railway reservation counter to get refund in cash within stipulated timelines with deduction of 60 per ticket. (Counter Booking)

Thanks for clearing it up. I haven’t had the need to cancel a ticket in over a decade. So I was quite rusty.

Guys, are the reserved trains being run at full capacity or some version of social distancing is being followed in the seat allocation? I mean, are they allocating all the 8 berths in a cubicle of a SL coach?
