Indian Railways Rules: A large number of people travel by Indian Railways every day. In such a situation, everyone should be aware of the rules of the railways. Today we are going to tell you what are the rules if you are booking tickets for children in the train.
If a child of 1 to 4 years of age travels in the railways, then there is no need to make reservation in the reserved bogie. Children below 5 years can travel in the train without a ticket.
At the same time, if you do not take a separate reserved seat for children between the age of 5 years to 12 years, then you will have to pay half the ticket fare for the child. The child can travel on the seat of his/her parent or accompanying person. But if you are booking a separate seat or berth for a child between 5 years to 12 years, then you will have to pay the full ticket fare.
If you fill the name details of a child between 1 year to 4 years while making reservation, then you will have to pay the fare. At the same time, if the details are not filled, children between 1 year to 4 years can travel for free.
