Senior citizens’ concessions suspended 

Let us tell you that the Indian Railways last year suspended concessional tickets for several categories of people, including senior citizens, to reduce non-essential travel in view of the coronavirus pandemic. The Railways also said that the concessions for senior citizens have been withdrawn as the risk of spread and mortality due to the COVID-19 virus is highest in that category.
