On Mother’s Day, the Indian Railways introduced a distinct ‘Baby Berth’ (seats for newly born children) aboard trains, allowing infants to sleep beside their mothers.
Lower berths, which were formerly exclusively for women, have been moved adjacent to baby berths, allowing small children to travel alongside their mothers without difficulty.
These additional berths for small children are currently being put on a trial basis in several trains.
Two slots have been added to the Lucknow Mail, which runs from Lucknow to New Delhi, according to official sources. The railways will not charge an additional fee for the infant seat.
The railway took to social media app Koo and said “Facilitating ease of travel for mothers travelling with their babies. Indian Railways introduced baby berth on an experimental basis in Lucknow Mail 12229/30, Coach No. 194129/B4, berth No. 12 & 60. The fitted baby berth is foldable & secured with a stopper.”
