Mahesh Gidwani started this petition to Piyush Goyal and

Indian Railways gives a host of concessions to the disabled. We thank them for it  The Concession of Mentally Challenged is presently 75%, and the same concession is provided to the escort

Sadly this concession is not extended to persons with Autism.  Autism is included as a Disability now under the Disabilities Act.  It is equally challenging as the other Mental Disabilities.

Though there is no cure,  people with Autism  improve with  therapies and treatments from Doctors/Psychiatrist/Psychologists/ Other Specialists.These are mainly available in Metros and bigger towns. 

The parents/caregivers, specially in smaller towns and rural area need to travel frequently for treatment/therapy to the nearest town where facility is available

We request the Hon Railway Minister, who even responds to tweets sympathetically, to consider our genuine request for 75% concession of persons with Autism and their escort.  A disability certificate from a Government Hospital can be insisted as a proof to prevent misuse
