1) Go to PRS and request clerk to feed "CP" option.
2) After the ticket is booked, approach CRS/DRM/CCM with an application for allotment of cabin/coupe/lower berth at the time of chart preparation.
Latter would carry more weightage and preference over the former.

Inform the Ticket supervisor that this is a gift and ask for a 2 berth coupe.
still you will get after chart preparation.

In 1st AC (and 1st class), the berths / seats are allotted only on charting.
Being the highest class, it is VIP prone and they are given the maximum comfort.
After the VIP absorption, it comes to the general passengers and if available, a coupe of 2 may be given to a PNR of 2.
Yet, suppose, on a day in a
train, after VIO allotment, remaining there are a coupe of 2 and a coupe of 4 for 6 un-allotted (so far) passengers who have 3 PNRs of 2 each. The charting clerk can now give a coupe of 2 to only one PNR and rest 2 PNRs (of 2 each) will have to be accommodated in the coupe of 4.
This way, there may be a chance that a PNR of 4 passengers is bifurcated into 2 or more Coupes.
Ladies traveling alone are also given preference to be either in a coupe of 2 with other single lady or to be there in a coupe of 4.
Wish you all the best for allotment of a coupe for 2.

Re# 217129
If the passenger passenger gives verbal or written request (on the same reservation form) for allotment of Coupe than the booking clerk selects 'CP' option in PRS system to consider this request as first preference.
In case of any VIP/HO movement their PNR gets priority over any CP request made by any GN quota passenger.
At the time of charting such VIP
PNR are manually entered in to PRSystem for priority allotment of coupe.

Normally, a coupe(2 seater) will be allotted for a two persons PNR and a cabin (4 seater) for 4 person PNR at the time of charting. But It will be based on the priority of booking and availability .
