Provide for seat selection on irctc website

Signed 2/3000
Online Signatures: 2
IRCTC website which allows online booking of railway tickets does not allow selection of available seats or berths resulting in haphazard distribution of members of a family to different coaches or corners. This results in insecurity and inconvenience and fear during night travels. Cancellation involves huge cancellation charges.
While the facility is available in booking sites for state transport buses and all private buses not to speak of airlines. , irctc should incorporate the simple but most helpful facility in its software for Booking.
This also helps encouraging more and more online bookings and reducing foul play at railway counters.
The Petition was also marked to:
Sri Piyush Goel union minister for Railways

 - 
It is not possible to allow seat selection because in order to balance ciach load and provide stability certain algorithm is followed in filling the seats. more
