Everyone appreciate that Indian Railways provide concession in railway fares to physically disabled persons.  For availing this concession, one has to produce the prescribed medical certificate alongwith a photocopy of the same at the ticket booking counter.  While the original is returned to the passenger, the photocopy is kept at the counter.
With the growing scientific advancement, the Indian Railways have also slowly adopted the scientific technologies.  Indian Railways started online railway ticket reservation system under the control of IRCTC.
Besides issuing computerized railway ticket at the counter by Indian Railways, IRCTC also provides online reservation of railway tickets to all the passengers.  IRCTC also provides online concession tickets to children and Senior Citizens.  For getting the concession tickets to the physically disabled persons, one has to go to railway counter.  Concession tickets to physically disabled persons are not issued online.
Issuing of online concession ticket to physically disabled persons will provide a lot of help to these under privileged, as this will reduce the physical movement and strain of these people.
I bring this to the attention of NGOs and other organization who care/look after the welfare of physically disabled persons to take appropriate action to get the online reservation system available for issuing concession ticket to physically disabled persons.
I also bring this to the attention of Concerned Railways and IRCTC to develop appropriate mechanism to get this benefit to the physically disabled persons.

It is not difficult at all, The persons who have taken a concesional ticket should be asked to show their proof of disability (certificate and concession form) to the Chief Ticket Collector on the station or TTE in the train. Any fraudsters should be made to pay a heavy fine, not just the difference. Something like double the ticket amount.
