Now Book Lower Quota Senior Citizen for two passengers of these categories
However, keeping in view the demands for providing this facility even when more than one passenger are travelling, it was decided that the facility of booking tickets under senior citizen quota may be provided where in a single application, even if two passengers are in combination of senior citizens /female passengers above the age of 45 years/pregnant women. This facility can be availed only if both the passengers intending to avail this facility are eligible to book berth under senior citizen quota i.e. either both of them should be senior citizens or ladies above the age of 45 or pregnant women or a combination of one senior citizen and one lady above the age of 45 or pregnant women, etc. Earlier senior citizens /female passengers above the age of 45 years/pregnant women could book accommodation under this quota only when travelling alone whereas now they will be able to book accommodation even when two passengers of these categories (either both from the same category or combination of one from any two categories) are travelling.
