The Indian Railways has rolled out charge for kids ticket, half concession is now full ticket.
The Indian Railways has rolled out a few improvements in the arrangement of permitting half concession on the base charge of kids in the 6 to 12 age bunch for separations underneath 300 km.
Consider an outing to Jamshedpur. In the event that you go by the AC seat auto of Ispat Express or Steel Express from Howrah, your youngster will be charged Rs 305 when the grown-up toll is Rs 430.
On the other hand, on the off chance that you go by AC First Class in Steel Express, the youngster ticket will cost Rs 1,230 which is the same as the grown-up admission. Likewise, in the event that you go by Sleeper Class in Gitanjali Express to Jamshedpur, the tyke's ticket will cost Rs 170 rather than Rs 210 charged from grown-ups. Be that as it may, in the event that you go by AC-III level of this train, you will wind up paying Rs 535 for your youngster, same as the grown-up charge.

Presently, kids up to the age of five are allowed to travel free on trains. Till as of late, those somewhere around 6 and 12 years old were permitted a concession of half on base charge. In spite of the fact that a Railway Board roundabout (No. tcii/2941/11/strategy) dated October 26, 2012, expressed that 'concessions will be acceptable subject to the base separation of 300 km' from April 1, 2013, there was no notice of the trains that would permit concessions and those that wouldn't.
"A definitive arrangement of the railroads is to get rid of such concessions through and through. A kid going with concession possesses a seat or compartment simply like a grown-up. Had that seat or compartment been occupied by a grown-up, the railroads would have gotten the full passage. On the off chance that individuals don't resentment paying carriers full passage for youngsters, why would it be advisable for them to look for concession amid rail travel? Prior, this was an extra administration offered to travelers yet with the railroads experiencing an assets crunch, the day may not be far when concessions are done away with, at any rate for high society travel," a senior authority in the Railway Board said.
