To add to the issue of seat allotment for advance reservation passengers, whenever I purchase the ticket online well in advance, it always lands up with a very inconvenient seat near the toilet. Wonder people booking well in advance are disadvantaged by this indiscriminate allotment. Suggest, railways could block lower birth for senior citizens and release atleast 50% of the reserved seats for picking their desired seats. This could be stopped say 20 days closer to departure. This will enable people who plan their booking well in advance to have their desired seats, just like some of the full service airlines. Hope some relief is obtained to the passengers who are booking well in advance. Thereby the footfalls to reservation counters can be reduced and passengers can make their convenient seats reserved without jostling in the crowded railway reservation counters.
It seems to be a good and workable demand . Railways should give it a try . more

It is correct when we go for general or tatkal ticket even for senior citizen lady we get the ticket upper birth. it is well known that those lady having age more than 60 or 65 years how she can ride on upper birth and even people are also very much rigid for their birth only no one wants to give the birth as a helping hand. Govt has to take some action so that if choice birth is available people can make the reservation in trains or date recognized. more
