Deterioration in Railways Performance
Pricing of tickets have gotten more expensive with flexi fare that instead of travelling 1st/2nd ac one should take flights:
safety has been bad with so many accidents
cleanliness is not to the mark, esp inside trains and many platforms are like nizamuddin station in bad state
cancellation charges are higher, irctc site is the same
big announcement on RO water plants, designer linen are all just talk
useless initiatives like giving platforms for wedding are being talked about
fog and timeliness story is still the same with no improvement
display on platforms is still missing
favoritism for mp mla, friends, quota travel, saloon travels by rail senior staff remains the same with no real action to reduce emergency quota seats. even dak khalais continue unabated (only ministry to provide have tax payer funded peons at home)
Many other initiatives are just talk except may be now there is insurance, some better food options, a twitter handle exists and then this circle for so called travelers input/opinion. Yes may be the helpline actually helps. But largely its a 2/5 rating.
And I havent talked yet about the even bigger losses railways is incurring after the pay commission.
So question Is railways loosing the plot going into 3 years of Modi Sarkar? Debate why I am wrong or advise why I am right and give even more reasons. more
