A piece of news by a leading media stating that Indian Railways passengers will now have to buy a full ticket for kids below 5 years is going viral on social media. However, it must be noted that the news is fake. According to the PIB fact Check team, it is optional to buy a ticket and book a berth for kids below 5 years while traveling on Indian Railways. "Free travel is allowed for kids below 5 yrs, if no birth is booked," PIB said in its tweet debunking the fake news.
