MAKE RAILWAYS BETTER
ITS THE SITUATION. TEA VENDORS, LOCK AND KEY SELLERS, BEGGARS, A LONG QUE TO TELL.YOU CAN ORDER FOOD, BUT TEA, WHEN YOU NEED?
OUR GOVT CANT PROVIDE TEA FACILITY TO TRAIN PASSANGERS?
WHY NO PANTRY CARS IN ALL MAIL AND EXPRESS TRAINS?
ONE PANTRY CAR GIVES EMPLOYMENT TO 30 TO 40 PEOPLE.
HOW MANY HUNDREDS MAIL/ EXP TRAINS .
ITS A GOOD BUSINESS. thousands from hotel management , cooks , helpers can get job.
pantry cars contracts are given on higher rates by tenders.
so IR can also earn good revenue, if it spares some coaches for pantry cars.
snatching of bags at doors,and threat to life, can be avoided, if we take care and rail police on plateforms too remains active and arrests such thieves by seeing in cctvs. more
TTEs should have Ticket/penalty etc. charging machine as given to Conductors of State Transport Buses.
If any berth reservation holder does not turn up then eligible RAC ticket holder should automatically be informed of his now allotted berth on his registered cell phone, without intervention of any TTE or other person - This may help in eliminating/reducing possible corruption.
The reason for their over burden may be as follows:-1- Salary package is very High.2- In night hours they have to take sound sleep so that they may be fresh after 8 hrs duty to be comfortable with his family or other work.3- TTEs are not aware of their duties & responsibilities.
My suggestion is Railway must start collecting on line feed back from at least passenger travelling in reserved coaches about the availability of TTE in the Coaches, Cleanliness of Coaches,etc more
