How to get confirm seats in Senior citizen quota/Ladies Quota through IRCTC?
Answer:-
Note:- these are new rules, not found in IRI (I didnt got any where on IRI, if it is there then pls ignore it, if not pls update it in FAQ).
1. Let us assume you have two passengers over age of 60 or ladies of age >=45 or one
...
more...
senior citizens and one lady (age>=45) traveling together.
Downside of this approach is that you may end up booking tickets in different coaches but the advantage is that you will be able to book tickets from the Senior Citizen quota or Lower Berth quota even when the General quota is showing waiting list. Lets look at the following steps.
2. You need to select the source, destination and select the quota as General.
3. Now select your train and select class
4. Now on the screen where you enter passenger information just enter name of the passengers. Make sure you make tick in check box for senior citizen(if they are travelling).
5. Before you go to payment screen you will see the availability in the Senior Citizen quota or Lower Berth quota on your screen. If you see availability is >=2, then you may go ahead and book the ticket for passenger.
More often than not you will get reservations done by using these steps and that too on lower berth quota. Reason is that this quota is applicable only for :
female(age>=45)
Senior citizen
Senior citizen + female(age>=45) together
ONLY TWO SEATS WILL BE UNDER THIS QUOTA PER PNR.
