New Delhi: The Indian Railways has said that it did not charge any rule for ticket booking for children. As per the national transporter, kids below 5 years of age do not need a reservation for travelling and can travel on a train without a ticket. However, if a berth is needed, full adult fare has to be paid by booking a ticket. Passengers can select the option of infant seats in the trains to avail free ticket facility for the kids.
According to the Indian Railways, if the passengers are taking a full berth for the kid between 5-11 years of age, then full fare has to be paid to the Railways. If they don’t take a full berth, then they will have to pay only half the ticket price. For children below 5 years, the Passenger Reservation System has not put any option of not taking a child berth after filling the names of children between the age of one to four years.
