You will be charged full fare for children aged 5-12 if a separate seat or berth is sought.
Now, the half ticket is still available, but without a seat or berth. In such cases, parents or the accompanying passenger will have to share their reserved space with the kids. Children under five years of age will continue to enjoy free ride (without a berth) in trains.

Sir, Thanks for the response. Actually my query was regarding how to book ticket for child without berth and without any adult traveling with him. Is it possible thorough Counter? Or can it be clubbed along with e-ticket with 6 adult confirmed ticket?

You can claim a half ticket from the TTE once the journey commences, provided you are traveling with a confirmed ticket.

Thanks again sir. Unfortunately TTE has charged fine of 500 Rs and additional excess fare. We took one child half ticket through UTS app i.e. unreserved ticket and told TTE at source station take excess fare for 3rd AC half ticket without berth. We were having confirmed ticket for 6 adult. Any way to submit the grivences for this?
