2. The issue regarding earmarking of ladies quota in 3AC class of Garib
Rath Express trains has been examined and it has been decided to earmark a
reservation quota of 6 berths in 3AC class of these trains for exclusive
use of female passengers irrespective of their age while travelling alone
or in group of female passengers.
3. It has also been decided to modify the logic of utilising accommodation
earmarked under ladies quota as under:-
(i) Till preparation of first reservation charts, only female passengers
travelling alone or in group of female passengers will be booked against
this quota.
(ii) However, at the time of preparation of first reservation charts, the
unutilised quota earmarked for female passengers will be released to
waiting list female passengers travelling alone or in group of female
passengers followed by waiting list senior citizens.

(iii) If there are no such passengers and berths are left vacant, onboard
ticket checking staff shall be authorised to allot this accommodation to
any other lady passenger/senior citizen on partially confirmed ticket, if
any after making necessary entries in the reservation chart. 
4. CRIS will make necessary modification in the software and advise the
date of effect to all Zonal Railways as well as this office. 
5. Necessary instructions may be issued to all concerned accordingly.
