Booking Befor 4 Months
Booking open before 4 Months is the wrong decision taken in the budget. as very difficult to plan accurate for 4 months. and we need to book 2 to 3 days Tickets for Our Reservation as the Dates of Travelling / occasion are not fixed before 4 months. and we have pay cancellation charges for other / extra tickets. Railway is block our money for 4 month and earn cancellation charges too. instead of 4 month they need to open advance booking before 30 days so the cancellation will be less and traveler save some money and Time. more
As long as touts- concern they donot book any ticket in advance because of the need of original I card of the passenger.They do there job by 1. setting with reservation clerks 2.hecking of IRCTC online site.
Right way is to do only one month advance reservation and to control reservation clerks and IRCTC software persons. more
