Indian Railways –  Earmarked of Reservation Quota for Women

NEW DELHI: The earmarked ladies quota in railway reservation  is a humanitarian effort adopted by Indian Railways, in its efforts to ensure confirmed reservation to women passengers travelling alone or in a group of female passengers. Now, in a move to benefit more such women passengers, Railways has decided to earmark a reservation quota of 6 berths in 3AC class of Garib Rath Express trains for exclusive use of female passengers irrespective of their age while travelling alone or in a group of female passengers.

Further, as per modified rules only female passengers travelling alone or in group of female passengers will be booked in the earmarked quota till preparation of first reservation charts. The unutilized quota will be released to waiting list female passengers travelling alone or group of female passengers, followed by waiting list senior citizens. If there are no such passengers and berths are left vacant, onboard ticket checking staff shall be authorized to allow this accommodation to any other lady passenger/senior citizen on partially confirmed ticket.
