Senior Citizen-To bring social responsibility for Senior citizen by promoting senior citizen bill. Save the seniors.

To bring social responsibility for Senior citizen by promoting senior citizen bill. Save the seniors.

As we know about India is country of culture, supporting  family culture and joint family culture, respective senior citizen  But due to  recent western trend these value  missing  to re-establish the link  government should have to come with a new solution

Few Key Observation and opinion

  1. If government and  Income Tax department will start giving tax benefit to pay monthly minimum 3000/-  to mother, father, uncle or any senior blood relation of father or any  senior citizen above 60 years + this will bring lots of family culture and help senior citizen to pay for  their medical ,food related need.  Maximum Tax free amount should be 2 lakhs per years
  2. Special reservation for senior citizen in railway means at least lower birth confirmation if person is senior citizen.
  3. Surety of reservation if senior citizen travelling in railway.
  4.    Current system in railway ticket reservation is not perfect intelligent. Most of the time if we choose lower birth ticket  required  ticket was not booked and money goes in fail transaction. Or if we choose none to at least book the ticket it gives middle or upper birth in railways train.  So  lower seat reservation quota should be introduce by railway government  for senior citizen , handicap person, pregnant women, and girls like in our metro train.  Proper reservation marking should be defined in our new train system.
  5.  Need of transparency in rail ticket booking system – available seat should be shown by graphically in railway also  ( two great example for the same: air line online checking and boarding pass system, and 2nd one as  we book any movie ticket by book my show site it shows available seat and allow us to choose the seat available.
  6. Their should be fix marked lower seats in Railway for senior citizen and pregnant women, Girls with Small child
  7. Lack of transparency in Railway Booking system
Government Initiative

2. Railways makes due provisions for senior citizens, women
computerized Passenger Reservation System (PRS) there is a provision to allot lower berths automatically to senior citizens and to female passengers 45 years and above, even if it is not opted for, subject to availability of' accommodation at the lime of booking.

Reply by IRCTC / Railway Officer on Senior citizen Issue: Sweet English Answer but not real level solution

 Issue : All Senior Citizen got Upper and middle seat in booking – it is drawback or incapability of railway software or  insensitivity of Railway /IRCTC . There should be some penalty clause for railway also

Really bad manipulation by Railway- misguided to general public and Over ruled the PMO  & Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment Request - Save the Senior

Dear Customer,
Please note that your reservation request is processed by the centralized Passenger Reservation System (PRS) of Railways and allotment of accommodation is done by the System without any manual intervention. The berths are allotted based on the system logic, depending on availability at that point of time. Further the reservation through the Internet is being done against the general quota and specific accommodation is not earmarked for the purpose of Internet reservations. (really bad manipulation by Railway)

Please note that at the time of journey you can request the fellow-passengers for change of the seats. It is not possible to change the berth after booking.

Kindly note that according to Railway Rules SS Quota will be applied (really bad manipulation by Railway) if there is only one Senior Citizen (of the age 45 and above for females and 60 and above for males) in one transaction and seats will be allotted according to it. SS Quota will not be considered for the transaction in which there are more than one Senior Citizen.
