Concession

The Railways provide for a large number of travel concessions to various categories of travellers, like students, sports persons, scouts and guides, farmers and industrial workers, nurses, teachers, senior citizens, physically handicapped and mentally retarded persons, etc.

For your easy reference, we have drawn up a Rail Travel Concession Table, which gives you details of travellers eligible for concession, the amount of concession and the specific conditions, if any, for availing the concession.The Table is divided into two Parts.

Part A:
Describes the categories of passengers who can avail their concession directly at stations, booking and reservation offices by producing the necessary documents. 

Part B:
Explains the categories of persons who should approach designated Commercial Officers of the Railways in the Area, Division or Zonal Railway Headquarters. After verifying the eligibility of these passengers, the Officers will issue the necessary authorisation letter of concession. This letter will form the basis on which Station Managers, Booking and Reservation Centers will issue the concessional tickets.

If you are eligible for any of the concessions, please remember...

  • Grant of concession is on basic fares only and is confined to Mail and Express fares in case of Second / SL / First Class. Concession is not available for travel on 'Ordinary Second Class' fares and also on super fast / reservation charges. 

  • No concession in rail fares is admissible by Rajdhani/ Shatabdi Express trains, except for senior citizens.

  • No concession is granted in case of travel by AC Chair Car, AC First Class & AC 3Tier, except for senior citizens.

  • Availing two different types of concessions by the same person is not permissible.

  • Your concessional ticket cannot be changed to a higher class even if you are willing to pay the difference of fare. However, your concession on First Class can be converted to 2 Tier AC Sleeper by paying the concessional fare forFirst Class plus the difference of the normal fare between 2 Tier AC Sleeper and First Class.

  • No concession is granted for a journey, the cost of which is borne by Central/State Governments/Local Bodies/ Corporations or Govt. Undertakings.

  • Some of the concessions are admissible subject to the minimum distance of journey that has been specified in the relevant categories.

  • First Class Coupon Books for Press Correspondents will be valid in AC Classes in accordance with the specific concession entitlement for higher class.

Please Note:
The list of concessions on the following page provides general and broad information about availability of concessions and is at best indicative. This is not a substitute for the concerned tariff books on Railway Concessions, which contain detailed information, prescribed formats and certificates needed for availing such concessions.
