for kind attention of the Hon'ble Minister for Railways Shri Suresh Prabhu.
On 21.07.2015, 4.30 pm, I saw an unusually long que of passengers entering NDRS from Ajmeri Gate side and getting frisked and their luggage x-ray scanned but some passengers entering by the parallel passage without any frisking or scanning. I entered by that passage but not allowed. Soon one colie took my luggage and I accompanied him and entered the station without any frisking and without any screening of my luggage but I had to pay colie Rs. 120/-. Colie told me that half of the amount collected by colies is passed on to the police constables on duty in lieu of the luggage carried by colies and passengers accompanying colies not checked. This is how rampant corruption going on and the security of Railway is being seriously compromised.
In the Rajdhani Express, feedback by call from '139' was taken even before having meals . The hand towels smelt bad. curry of the meals flowed from one tray to other for the handling of trays one over the other and when the train is about to reach destination, the TTE etc. not seen and serving attendents come to collect tips/ bakhshish.
Why not some one from your trusted staff visit railway stations and actually travel as an ordinary passenger if the condition of railway is to be seen and improved, instead of relying upon the feedback of sycophant officers in the hierarchy or listening to the VIPs called by media for arranged talks with the Hon'ble Minister. more
