Online railway ticket booking: In case of senior citizens, IRCTC offers concession on fares.
IRCTC or Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation, the e-ticketing arm of Indian Railways, has set certain rules for booking and cancellation of train tickets. Passengers can book a ticket up to 120 days in advance for all classes and trains, according to IRCTC's website - irctc.co.in. IRCTC allows senior citizens, journalists and persons with disabilities to book concessional tickets. In case of a ticket cancellation, IRCTC refunds the amount after deducting the applicable charges, by crediting it to the account from which the booking transaction took place.
