Getting Railways Photo Identity Card for Persons with Disability

Alokita
Alokita | August 19, 2017 (Last update: December 2, 2021)

Alokita is a Polio Survivor. She overcame her disability and went on to become a commerce graduate. Alokita writes about disability issues and her appetite for learning new things is far from satiated.

Earlier it used to be quite discriminatory that all passengers were able to book their railway tickets online sitting in the comfort of their couch while persons with disabilities needed to go to ticket window physically for getting a ticket. But now things have changed and you can see an option for booking a train ticket under handicapped quota online when you login to the IRCTC website.

At first glance, it looks quite relaxing that we don’t have to put extra effort for booking a train ticket for the reason that we are persons with disabilities. But as soon as you click on the check-box on that reads “I’ll book in special concession (Physically handicapped and Journalist Passengers)”, a dialogue box will appear.

The dialogue box tells that if you book a concessional ticket you need to carry a photo identity card issued by the Railways. The escort or attendant too needs to carry a photo identity card mentioned at the time of booking. This dialogue box can create a lot of confusion and it is quite possible you’ll go back and book a general ticket despite having disability. If it was simply a photo identity card there would not be any confusion because we all carry our Aadhar Card with us.

Getting Railways Photo Identity Card and Concession Certificate is a big benefit available to PwDs

This article is intended to give you the valuable information about the photo identity card issued by the Railways including the procedure to obtain it and where to find the required form.

Hindi Video Explaining the Whole Process

Who is Eligible to Get Railways Photo Identity Card?

For the purpose of granting photo identity card, the Railways has divided persons with disabilities into four categories.

  1. Orthopedically handicapped person who cannot travel without an escort or assistance.
  2. Mentally retarded persons who need an escort.
  3. Completely blind persons traveling alone or with an escort.
  4. Totally deaf and mute person (with both afflictions together).

In addition to these four broad categories, the concession is also allowed to persons with certain ailments.

  1. Cancer patients
  2. Heart patient
  3. Non-infectious leprosy patients
  4. Thalassemia major patients
  5. T.B. patients
  6. Kidney patients
  7. Haemophilia patients
  8. Aplastic anemia patients
  9. Sickle-cell anemia patients

The given forms should be certified by a government doctor with sign and seal. You need to paste a recent color photograph of yourself that would be attested by the doctor. Getting the certification from a government doctor though is not enough to be eligible to book concessional tickets under handicapped quota; this is just the first step.

Procedure for Getting Concessional Railway Ticket for Handicapped Persons

1. Approach the nearest D.R.M office

You need to visit your nearest Divisional Railway Manager’s Office with all the relevant documents in original as well as self-attested photocopies. Relevant documents are:

  1. Concession Certificate or Unique Disability ID (UDID) Card
  2. Photo Identity Proof (e.g. Aadhaar Card)
  3. Date of Birth Proof
  4. Address Proof
  5. Two passport size color photo
  6. Attested photocopies of these documents.

NOTE: Concession Certificate is the certificate issued by the railways by verifying the disability certificate. The whole problem has been that the Concession Certificate can not used for booking ticket online. That is why you need Railway Photo ID Card.

When you submit your application, the envelope containing the documents and the application should have legibly written heading “Application for issue of Railway Identity Card for Physically Challenged Persons for Ticketing”.

The application submitted for the purpose should be addressed to the Senior Divisional Commercial Manager (Sr. DCM) of the division.

2. Verification of the submitted documents by Commercial Inspector

Once you submit your documents along with the application the concerned officer would get them verified from a commercial inspector. The procedure will move forward only after the inspector verifies that the issuing hospital, doctor and the details mentioned are all correct. Only the concession certificate issued by a government office of the concerned zone will be entertained.

3. Hand over the Photo Identity Card to the Concerned Person

After the verification process is complete you’ll get a call from the D.R.M Office about the date and time for collecting your photo identity card. The disabled person can send a representative on her behalf to collect the identity card. In such a case, the representative must have an authority letter (a handwritten permission by the PwD and duly attested signature of the representative) in order to get the Photo Identity Card from the D.R.M Office.

4. De-validation of the Concession Certificate

While issuing the photo identity card with unique 11 digits identification number, the D.R.M office will endorse the information on the original concession certificate by pasting a stamp with all relevant details. Once the details are endorsed, your concession certificate becomes useless. Now you have to use only the photo identity card for all further transactions with the Railways.

Concession Allowed By Indian Railways for Persons with Disabilities

Now that you know the answer to your queries about getting a railway photo identity card for availing tickets on concessional rates, let us give you an overview of the concessions that you may get based on your certified disability.

Concession Allowed By Indian Railways for Persons with Disabilities
S.No.Type of DisabilityConcession Allowed
1Orthopedically Handicapped/Paraplegic persons who cannot travel without escort.
  • 75% concession in basic fairs of mail/express in Second, Sleeper, First, AC Chair Car and AC 3 tier
  • 50% in 1 AC and 2 AC
  • 25% in 3AC and AC Chair Car of Rajdhani/Shatabdi Trains
  • 50% in Monthly Season Ticket and Quarterly Season Ticket.

One Escort will be allowed the same concession.

2Mentally retarded persons who cannot travel without escort
  • 75% concession in basic fairs of mail/express in Second, Sleeper, First, AC Chair Car and AC 3 tier
  • 50% in 1 AC and 2 AC
  • 25% in 3AC and AC Chair Car of Rajdhani/Shatabdi Trains
  • 50% in Monthly Season Ticket and Quarterly Season Ticket.

One Escort will be allowed the same concession.

3Blind persons traveling alone or with an escort
  • 75% concession in basic fairs of mail/express in Second, Sleeper, First, AC Chair Car and AC 3 tier
  • 50% in 1 AC and 2 AC
  •  25% in 3AC and AC Chair Car of Rajdhani/Shatabdi Trains
  • 50% in Monthly Season Ticket and Quarterly Season Ticket.

One Escort will be allowed the same concession.

4Deaf & Dumb persons (both afflictions together in the same person) traveling alone or with an escort
  • 50% in Second, Sleeper and First Class.
  • 50% in Monthly Season Ticket and Quarterly Season Ticket.

One Escort will be allowed the same concession.

Practically using Your Railway Photo Identity Card

For booking concessional tickets online you’ll need to use your unique 11 digits ID number and you’ll have to carry the original photo identity card to be checked on-board and off-board the train. If you are booking the ticket at the ticket window then you may have to submit a photocopy of the identity card at the counter. In this case, too you’ll have to carry the original photo identity while traveling through railways.

Booking ticket for the escort/attendant

When a person with disability is to travel with an attendant then the attendant’s identity is also important. While booking tickets online you’ll get a list of 10 valid IDs for the attendant from which you have to choose the one which the attendant will carry while traveling with you.

This was all a PwD needs to know for getting and using the photo identity card issued by railways.

You may have some doubts such as – what will happen if you lost your identity card? What will you do after the expiration i.e. 5 years after the issuance of the photo identity card? In both the cases answer is same… you will have to get a new photo identity card. In case you lost your photo identity card, you’ll first need to file an F.I.R. and take a copy of the same. After this you’ll have to follow the same steps (as explained above) but this time your relevant documents will have a new partner – the photocopy of the F.I.R.

In case of expiration of the card you are expected to start your process of getting a new photo identity card three months prior to the expiration of the old card.

    Dear Friends,

    Very useful article.

    My son is having the below disability.
    Vision Impairment – 75%
    Hearing Impairment – 70%
    Physical Impairment – 25%

    The government percentage mentions 87% disability.

    Is my son eligible to get a Railway Concession card

    • Avatar shivkumar agrawal says:

      how to get this card

      • Avatar B. Dsouza says:

        1. First you have to get the UHID Card (Handicapped Card) from designated Government Hospital (Rajwadi Hospital, in Mumbai). This takes almost 6 months. (Maybe due to Covid problems).

        2. Then you have to get the Railway Concession form, issued by the SAME Government Hospital OR the Div. Railway Manager from the Railways of your Region.

        3. Check the very useful information given in the article above, where you can also download the Railway Concession Form. It also mentions the documents that are required.

        4. Presently the Railways are accepting the old Certificates, but this may not be for long.

        5. Though the Article above says, that online ticketing is possible for handicapped category, I am not sure they will give you choice of lower berth. Once, I did physical booking, and I was given higher berth and was told to request other passengers. I cancelled the booking.

        6. So, be aware of all these problems. Best is to make physical booking.

    • Avatar Dr. Jamaluddeen says:

      The bench mark disability for availing benefit is 40%.

I got my photo identity card issued by railways in the month of Dec 2015 but it was valid upto 1 year only hence it got expire on Dec 2016, dont know why they issued it for 1 year. Meanwhile i tried to do reservation through it in online mode, i always got a error like card is not valid or yet to update, please contact to nearest DRM office. Now my question is do you guys have any idea about it. Should i have to initiate it as a fresh start or my already generated Card can help me out into this. Please suggest.

    • Avatar Jamal says:

      Card is issued for 5 years first time, if age of the candidate is less than 35 years. If Card is issued for one year, it means it was issued for temporary disability. If you want to get issued new ID Card, there is need to get issued disability card first then get new ID Card.

    I live in Delhi NCR. I have completed all the formalities for my son’s disability concession certificate with Indian railways in 2017. I have received the receipt from railways office (delhi) and i was told that information will be shared online in 6 months time. Its been an year but we haven’t any information nor can we find out any website where information about collection of such certificate is mentioned. Do you know anything about concession certificate delivery part by any chance?

    Note: Most websites clearly talk about formalities on filling up the concession form (which is very important) however nobody seems to have clear knowledge on concession certificate delivery part.

    • Avatar pandey neeraj says:

      so formalities for your son’s disability concession certificate means what? did you submit all required documents to DRM Office? or go to divyangjan-rail.in and submit all required documents online.

    Sir fyi – I went to drm office new delhi to apply for rail id card I didn’t have concession certificate but I had udid and disability certificate but they didn’t accept it and said to me to produce concession certificate only .

    • Lalit Kumar Lalit Kumar says:

      Unfortunately it is true. Railways want it’s own concession certificate. In India, it very difficult to prove disability. Every authority wants tailor-made proof.

    How to renew railway identity card for orthopedically handicapped through online

    • Avatar Kranti Taneja says:

      Please visit divyangjan-rail.in and apply online. It would be better if you apply one or two months before your certificate expires.

  84. Avatar Kranti Taneja says:

    Thank you very much for giving information through this article.
    Had I read this earlier, I would have applied for renewal of my concession certificate two months in advance.
    I would like to say to all the differently-abled that if your certificate is about to expire, then apply for it to be renewed at least two months in advance because this process of railways takes one and a half to two months.

    Now a days government is issuing UDID card for handicap people. That card can be downloaded online and can be verified online. That card is sufficient for all the practical purposes. No need of further certificate from a doctor again. Indian railways need to wake up and put an end to all these ridiculous procedures

Address on my Aadhar Card changed to Haridwar. Kindly suggest from where I can renew my concessional certificate.

    Visited Sambalpur DRM Office on 11th APR 2022[MONDAY] , They don’t know what is UDID card and dont want to know even what it is. They just need the concession certificate . Not sure whom to escalate this, they think UDID is just something I printed by myself and brought to them.

    Now I am suspecting the whole idea of UDID, It is nowhere useful.

  89. Avatar Purohit says:

    When the disabled person has a valid UDID card issued by the Govt.of India, why the railways are asking once again to get the photo id done? I do not understand. Why the UDID card is not acceptable by the railways. The railways need to answers this.

    HI All, This procedure is all changed now. Now it’s made simple.
    1) Get Disability Certificate from your Regional Government Hospital or You can have UDID too. Generally will take 2 months at max
    2) Register as new user in https://divyangjanid.indianrail.gov.in/ . Download the Concession Certificate form.
    3) Get the Concession certificate attested by the Local Government Doctor.
    4) Upload all the soft copies in the website.
    5) As per my Discussion in D.R.M office, it will take 1 month for Verification and Issue of Railway ID Card.
