  1. Is there any list of hospitals that can issue the certificate. I have the railway concession form from Bangalore institute of oncology (BIO)for my mother who is under treatment on the same hospital and railway refuse to accept it. They are saying that in bangalore KIDWAI only is authorised to issue the certificate . BIO also is a reputed dedicated Cancer Center not sure why they are not accepting the certificate from them

  2. It is very great but I have one doubt Concession pass is available in all hospitals

  3. you can get the certificate from indian railway website

  4. THESE SO CALLED CONCESSIONS ARE ON PAPER ONLY..I am resident of Visakhapatnam and My wife is a cancer patient for the past Eleven years. I want to take her for check ups at Hyderabad as facility not existing locally .I have got the concession form signed by the Govt Hospital(King George )Visakhapatnam. But the clerk and supervisor at Railway booking refused to give concession saying you have to get the certificate from the hospital where she is going to get check up. I am forced to travel by paying FULL fare.

  5. All the registered cancer hospitals can issue a concession certificate whether its Kidwai, HCG, Apollo or BIO..
