When will senior citizens get discount in tickets

A big announcement has been made by the Railways regarding the concession in ticket fare to senior citizens. Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav had made it clear in March 2022 itself that the railways have suffered heavy losses due to the corona epidemic. In the year 2020-21, the revenue of the railways has remained far below the pre-covid period. In such a situation, at present, the Railways is not in a position to give any concession in fare to senior citizens. The Railway Minister said that if this exemption is given at this time, then the load on the Railways will increase.

Indian Railway: Rail travel will be expensive, the fare of these trains is going to increase by 50 rupees!

no relief yet

Let us tell you that senior citizens used to get a discount of 40 to 50 percent in the fare from the railways. On taking tickets for any class, 50 percent discount was given to women elders and 40 percent to men, but this has been abolished after the corona epidemic. Since then there is a continuous demand that the Railways should implement it again.
