Online Signatures: 17
Railway has finally stopped the senior citizen concession in all upper class like 1st AC, Stabdi etc.
This step is against the past procedure of concession to Senior citizen & disable person. during all government of all parties. Railway is only trying to make money in every sector.
None of us knows what will happen if & when Bullet train comes.
This act of removal of concession to senior citizen & disable person is done without any reason & even against right of senior citizen,
With a letter I will go before our Hon. Prime Minister & Railway Minister to reconsider & apply concession to Senior Citizen & disable person in all class & all trains.
My question is that will government ever think of removing the SC ST concession? answer is big NO. Why ? Vote bank will be destroyed,

Senior Citizens because of their Age Issues could not Suffer, hence they need special comfort and safety hence the change in Rule is not Justifiable. more

now days railways are like private company only objective it to generate revenue in all possible ways. they have also introduced Dynamic pricing for tatkal apart from tatkal charges, every step is against common people. more

The point mentioned by Mr. Shailesh is valid that the concession may be restricted to AC sleeper or two tire but no harm in allowing them first class too because ultimately it is their time to relax. more

This is totally wrong. On the one hand there are several schemes launched by the government to help senior citizens and on the other they are trying to loot the people at the fag end of their life. This should be totally discouraged and protested in a proper way. The most surprising fact is that media has not talked about it. Don't know why. more

The I class tickets are luxury and not basic right! The privileges given to elders is like a charity its neither a claim as fundamental right nor it applies to claim to luxury! The alms, concessions or quotas must be in general class and not in any other class. The railways cannot be a milking cow even for freebuyers, those who can pay for higher facility or luxury as we should rightly call it, must only be given to enjoy it. Govt. is very correct in pulling out all luxuries given to just about anyone which has laid a huge burden over national resources!! Country cannot pay for all non-payers!
Second-the facility is not given as a compensation for some atrocity or injustice as in case of SC\ST etc. So claims of this kind must be discouraged. more
