The passenger has written tagging Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav that what is the logic of running the seat allotment, I had booked tickets for three senior citizens with lower berth preference, then 102 berths were available, despite that they were given middle berth, Upper berth, and side lower berth were given. You should repair it.

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 The Railways also said that the concessions for senior citizens have been withdrawn as the risk of spread and mortality due to the COVID-19 virus is highest in that category.
