Hi seniors,

I recently tried to book tickets of Yuva Express (Howrah-New Delhi) through IRCTC. As you know in Yuva category trains their is a provision of concession for unemployed youths under 45 years of age. When I tried to book the ticket I couldn't find any option to select the concession. The only option to book tickets is by paying the full fare.

Can any senior provide some inputs...?

for any type of concession (except senior citizen)you have to book ticket through rail reservation counters where you have to show your papers and reservation superintendent will verify your papers and allow you to make reservation on concession.

Obviously I have no experience of booking Yuva tickets.

Rs894 is the price I see on erail.

Is that the 'concession' price?

As far as I'm aware, the whole train is at 'concession' prices, is this wrong?

The Garib Rath trains are cheaper than other trains, but you don't need to select any concession for those trains, similarly, we can buy senior citizen on the net, but need proof (when we travel) that we are entitled to those tickets.

My guess is that the Rs894 is the correct concession fare, and you just buy the ticket on the net (or at a counter), but the ticket is only valid if you have the card/paperwork to prove you are entitled to that concession.

The railways are considering allowing an extra discount for those traveling by the long-distance overnight, wholly Chair Class Yuva trains, I think they'll call it the mentally deranged concession.

Surely Sleeper Class is better than Chair Class for such a long journey, and the Duronto is just as fast, otherwise, 3A must be worth the extra money.

Didn't there used to be a Kolkata-Delhi Garib Rath train? (I can't find it now)
.

The fare of Howrah-Delhi Yuva express is 560/- without any concession.
The fare with concession is 299/-.
These fares are as per the official website of Indian Railways.

I found a circular of Indian railways indicating that Yuva express has initially 60% of the total coaches earmarked for Yuva category and the rest will be for general passengers.

Please see this: http://indianrailways.gov.in/indianr...-2k9/CC-70.pdf

Your brother (if he is unemployed) can walk into the nearest employment exchange and get a registration card

Once in possession of the same, he, or you, can stand in the queue at the PRS counter and get the ticket booked.

Do you think its worth the effort for a CC journey?

CC is very much suitable for unemployed youths....

Food charges are included only in Duronto, Rajdhani and Shatabdi.
Yuva has no Pantry Car as such but you would find food being loaded from intermediate stations.
