Unfortunately, Autism is not considered a disability under the Disabilities Act in India. You can not claim to be mentally challenged and ask for the concession in railways.

No, the one who has completed 70 years and above will only get the senior citizen concession of 40%. Similarly, it is 50% for women who have attained the age of 58 years and above. No further discount will be provided to them.
