Entitlement of Children


Children under 5 years of age are carried free. Passengers are requested to indicate the names of children below the age of 5 years who will be accompanying them during the journey in the requisition form submitted at the time of seeking reservation. They are also requested to give the names of such children accompanying them in the train to the Train Conductor / TTE who will keep a note of this in the Reservation chart. This will help the railways to establish the identity of children below the age 5 years in case of any exigency. In case of child age 5years and under 12 years of age for whom berth / seat ( in reserve class ) is sought at the time of the reservation , full adult fare for  such child shall be charged . However if berth / seat is not  sought for the child for the above mentioned age at the time of the reservation , then half of adult fare shall continue to the charged subject to minimum distance for charge . Full reservation charges , Supplementary charges and Development surcharges shall be levied separately .
