I booked an online ticket at irctc for my mother and my daughter 9 yrs old.

Tbe ticket got booked and it shows CNF for me and my mother and NOSB for my daughter.

Please advise what is this NOSB as they have charged some money for this ticket not the full amount.

Moreover if this happens to be a sharing ticket then i want to book the complete ticket as the journey is too long Delhi to kerala and it would be very tiring. Please advise how to get a ticket / bearth confirmed for my daughter.

I did the research on net. NOSB stands for no seat / birth. it is done if the chile is below 11 years of age as indicated at this link below -

Dec 24, 2015 - NOSB = No Seat Berth (If Child Age Less Than 11 And Opted For Ticket) ... For New Rule For Ticket., Example Ke Liye Check This Post " /pnr/post/1688369 ...

Incidentally, your query has helped me acquire new knowledge, I did not know this. Thanks.

It seems one has to book full ticket for a child to get a seat for her / him. Can it be done (as we indicate the age of passenger in booking form online)? I have no idea.
