It is mandatory for the senior citizens to provide the Aadhaar details. Railway ministry implemented this in 2017. Aadhaar is necessary to avail concession at both counter and e-tickets.

I am 62 yrs old who wants to go to New Delhi through Rajdhani Express from Howrah station. Am I allowed to get this concession?

Yes, you are allowed to get the 40% concession while booking tickets. The concession is for every man whose age is 60 years and above. They will get the concession even if they are traveling through Rajdhani, Duronto, and Shatabdi.
