Advertisement on rail coaches inside & outside. Frame need to be established.
Advertisement on railway station and all platforms. Ex. Hotels & tourist places, education, food chain, insurance etc.
Modernization of railway platform & stations like metro rail station.
Increasing the competition in mobile /telecom / internet in each platform of station, all service provider need to be invited to establish their setup for increasing quality of service in public benefit. Govt. income increase from lease on these services.
Increasing the competition in food chain and restaurant inside the platform or railway station- all big food chain supplier need to be invite like Tata, Birla, Reliance, Haldiram, Agarwal sweets, Nestle, Mahindra, Pepsi, IRCTC, many more dedicated Indian companies for India economy growth .

I totally agree with Subhojit Chatterjee Experience above. I too had almost same experience where refund was denied citing no convincing reason. And you can't fight with a computerised system where there is no person to be addressed too. more
