Train passengers can now book a wheelchair online, through IRCTC. The service is available for free at the New Delhi station and is introduced for sick, elderly and differently-abled people.

With the help of an interesting and thoughtful move by Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), passengers can now book free wheelchairs, online, for use at the New Delhi station.

The facility is to make travelling easier for the old, sick and differently-abled people. Wheelchairs can be booked while booking the tickets online.
