Respected sir/madam,
My mother in law is a 70 yr old senior citizen was about to travel along
with an attendent in train no. 12424 with pnr status 2355803228 having
tickets as wl 1,2. They were about to travel from NCB TO GHY. Its very
urgent for them to travel to Ghy since my wife is not well. Kindly allot
atleast 1 or 2 tickets to them so that they can reach here by today.

Thank you. more  
Every year I travel from Bandra Teminus in Mumbai and find it very hard to get to and from the platforms, please make improvements. The other issue is the coolies should have fixed price for carrying baggage for example one large bag Rs 30, two large bags Rs 60 etc displayed on the platforms. The whole area around this terminus needs better road access aswell. more
