As far as my knowledge goes, I am sure that there is concession in the 
domestic sector, in (Indian Airlines)..
How ever the concession is only applicable on the whole fair.. and not the 
tax.. and its 50% of the fair....
How ever, I am not sure of other domestic airlines.. but when I traveled 
with other airlines I did not get any concession.. they said that there is 
no rule as such with their airlines..
And the concession is only given to the passenger who is traveling.. escort 
does not get any kind of concession if he is escorting the visually impaired 
person.. In short there is no concessions for him..
in case of the International sector.. In all the airlines which I have 
traveled.. there is no concession available.. they also say that there is no 
such rule available with them...

even I would like to know that if there are any changes in these above rules 
with respect to airlines concessions..
If any one has any documents regarding the airlines rules then please do 
send it to me.. or if any one has any idea then do let me know..
your help is highly appreciated..
many thanks

Dear Members,
        Would some one pleas tell how much concession (in percent) in air 
travel is given to visually impaired person? I also want to know does this 
relaxation is applicable in private airlines as well? Is some kind of 
concession is provided to escort  who is traveling along with visually 
disabled person?
    Thanks in advance for your valuable replies.
