More frustrating is that VIPs , or agent booking or Tatkal people get the inner bearths at the eleventh hour. They enjoy comfortable journey and laugh at you.
My suggestions are;
1 The numbering system be changed and inner bearths should be allotted first.
2 These side bearts should be given to the last miniut travelers.
3There could be a concession in ACII fare for the side bearths or
4 Some additional facility be given to passengers travelling on these.
5 VIPs or the free pass holders be given these more
I agree with Malavika Joshi for all her points and especially these side lower/upper berths should be allotted to free travellers like pass holders and VIPs. Moreover, every pass holder or VIPs must be charged some fare instead of free tickets. more
