Get concession in train ticket without waiting in queue for hours

Ambala Cantt: Now the ex military men and handicapped persons won't have to stand and wait in long lines for railway reservation. Railway is preparing to give concessions to such people in e-ticket online.

Ambala Cantt railway station: concession will not take hours for train ticket online
At start this facility will be introduced for sleeper class, and it will be available from February 25 onward. Railway has taken this decision seeing the discomfort to handicap people in buying tickets.

"Service is being started to ensure the comfort of travelers. Software is being updated. The facility will be provided to users asap." ~ Gulshan, Chief Regional Manager, IRCTC, Chandigarh Division.
To take advantage of concession, former military men and handicap persons need to deposit their documents in a nearby DRM office. These documents will then be verified by the railway office. Upon successful verification, a photo identity card will be issued which will contain various details. The traveling passenger has to show it to the TTE or checking staff during ticket checking process.

The online ticket booking software of railway is being updated to make arrangements for providing concessions online. If everything works alright after making change in software the service will commence from Feb 25 online.
