Rail Travel Concession to Disabled Persons
Demands are received for grant of concession in Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Jan Shatabdi trains. Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Jan Shatabdi trains are premium trains in which scope of concession has been limited to only a few categories to patronize full fare paying passengers. The fares for Garib Rath trains are already subsidized and no concessions have been granted in these trains.
This information was given by Shri R.Velu, Minister of State for Railways in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today.
