Railways gives lower berths to senior citizens

A passenger had said in a tweet that he had booked a train ticket for his uncle and had opted for the lower berth as his uncle had leg problems, but despite this the Railways gave him the upper berth.

According to the passenger's tweet, Railways wrote that if you book a ticket under general quota, then seat allotment is given only if the seat is available. If there is no seat then no, you will not get that seat. If you book tickets as per Reservation Choice Book, you will get a lower berth only if the lower berth is allotted.
