Women above 58 years of age and men above 60 years of age were getting 50% and 40% concessions respectively in train ticket charges. This was withdrawn in 2020 during the Covid period on the plea that senior citizens are not expected to travel during Covid period. Now trains have started running. Senior citizens will have to travel for medical treatment, visiting their children working in other places etc as also visiting tourist places.
The Central Government should immediately restore the concession in train charges for senior citizens. Do not ignore the senior citizens.
