Other than genuine urgency for travel supported by proof like urgent hospitalisation, death news, interview for jobs etc EQ should be restricted to one or two berths per month in all other cases like MLAs/MPs/Judges and other VIPs enjoyng allotment under EQ as a privilege so as to make more berths available to genuine urgencies of the general public. The fare under EQ should be at Tatkal rates. more
