Horrible state of AC first class travel
Me and my wife being senior citizens travelled by 11301 Udyan Express leaving in 03.11.2019 PNR 8121170824. We boarded the train st Kalyan Jn. at 9.45 am and were shocked to find the entire corridor of the AC first class coach was occupied by more than 20 people most are ticketless travellers. With great difficulty we pushed our way to our cabin C. It is even surprising that the coach attendants were in good conversation with the unauthorized passengers. The toilets were used by these people and the stink was unbearable. I send messages to three numbers and email to the coachmitra as suggested by the stickers pasted. Nobody turned to clean the toilets till the train reached Solapur in the late evening. The TTE who came to check my tickets could not help much. The unauthorized travellers were shouting and sleeping near the exit doors and refused to move. We could not sleep throughout our journey on account of this. The vendors were fleecing the helpless passengers. Tea was sold at Rs 20 instead of Rs 10 or 7 biscuits were sold for 20 and 25 instead of 13 and 20.
I was told that this is regular affair and nobody bothered to check.
Through this post I appeal to the Railway Minister to order a surprise inspection and ascertain the facts.
Will he do this? more
The basic issdue is Railway is run for Babus and they have got every right to sell unauthorised tickets/ Railway obliged you by allowing you to travel. Soon they will ask you to vacate reserved seats so that these can be sold tp unauthorised person, Railway is their ancestoral property and ourt Board and Minsiters are fully committed to uphold their rights. more
The Railway authorities should ensure safety and security and privacy, what has been paid for should be ensured. more
I traveled from Rajahmundry to Gauhati on 4.11.2019 in SL12. To my dismay nothing called a toilet for travelers with fully loaded with travelers. NO help from TC or security. Why is it so? more
Because Babus sold these places and they are entitled to do so. more
These kind of horrible affairs are noticed many times.Most of the ticketless passengers in First AC coaches are railway officers holding travel passes.They used to travel regularly in AC coaches ,whether they are on duty or private travel.Please note no ordinary passenger can dare to enter in Ac First/Second Coach.These free passengers are only the sleuths of Railway's working on different top positions,Class I officers,Railway Police & Commercial staffs.Even you can see line staffs on duty like PWI, AEN,XENS,OHE Executives. Sleeper classes TTEs are found taking rest in AC Coaches.Many times one can observe that the passengers of sleeper classes have to search their sleepers' TTEs in FIRST Class AC coaches. What a ridiculous joke is made by Raiways.
These so called AC pass/PTO holder officers' deliberate act is known to all TTEs and other commercial supervisors too. Helplessly they are not taking any severe action against these ticketless travelers.The reason is obviouely that these officers are also practicing the same tacties while travelling themselves or their families.Many few travellers are buying tickets and doing reservations for AC First Class.Railway collects very negligible revenue from Ac First class,one can verify from commercial section. Ironically,these first class AC coaches are always running full with these free travellers. Railway should avoid all these loose practices to extend facilities to genuine and passengers having reservations.Because our PM has to achieve Five Trillion Economy and we are marching to create New India. more
nothing would result in favor of paid passengers. piyush goyal the railway minister seems to be not active as he was earlier. my complaint regarding not functioning of escalator in chennai egmore station received no response. we have left with no alternative except to bear alkl these inconveniences though it is not common in every place operated by railways more
