Indian Railways: If you are also going to go on a train journey recently, then first of all read this news thoroughly, because a new rule related to rail travel has changed. In fact, recently the railways has also provided the facility of reservation berth for children under 5 years old, that is, now even a child of 5 years old will get a full ticket, let’s know in detail.
According to the new rules of the Railways, the railway will provide a full berth to a child below the age of 5 years, provided that you will have to pay the adult fare for that entire seat. Indian Railways has made such a massive change in the reservation system for the convenience of children younger than 5 years.
It is to be known that for the last several years in the Railways, children between the age of 5 years to 12 years were given full seats at half the fare. Now after this new rule, children of this age group were started providing full berths on payment of adult’s rent. Under this, the facility of no berth remained on paying half the rent. In such a situation, children of this age group had to travel in the seat of their parents, but now, increasing the convenience of young children, the Railways has decided to give full seats to children below five years of age.
The passengers will have to take care of this, make the reservation of the child and pay the full fare for the adult’s seat to the Railways. However, children under the age of five can still travel for free with their parents. But if the passengers wish to pay the full berth fare, they can get their little ones booked for the full berth. This will give revenue to the railways and also facilitate the passengers to travel happily with their families in full berths.
