23-10-2016 Bangalore Reg. avoiding unreserved passengers in reserved coaches. This problem can be totally and completely ELIMINATED if and only if Railways do what I say. Will they do it? I will tell you how. Introduce a pair of trains for each train number. For example for Karnataka Express bearing train number ......... (?) introduce one train with train number .......(?) (I do not remember train number.) and another train with the same number suffixed by G or any other suitable suffix. How such idea works? Yes it works, because there are two aspewcts to be considered by our great Indian Railways - one is commercial aspect and the other is social responsibility of railways. Complete details will be sent if Railway Administration responds to my idea. Unless Railways have zeal to implement what I say, it is of no use in sending my idea. They do not value it well. Let them respond. I will provide details of my workable concept. I am confident of my model. Kindly reply by e-mail to me. - Nagaraj T V more  
There have been many suggestions so far, both practical and implementable and also theoretical in nature which could get implemented in Ram-Rajya only. Having said this, I have a loud thinking. The railways may wish to explore the possibility of running a "Totally reserved train" as a trial measure on a given route. For this train, entry to the plat form to be restricted only to reserved passengers. more  
I request to add 2 more unreserved Coaches in every Express Train. I also request to add one more Ticket Examiner per Train & make Ticket Examiners & Attenders responsible. Only reserved Ticket holders must be allowed to enter the reserved compartments from originating station itself. To atchieve this, Ticket Examiners & Coach Attenders must report for duty at the Coach atleast one Hour before train starting time. Increasing more long distence Express trains also will help. more  
Only in Northern part of India this type of lawlessness is prevailing among the travellers. They must be caught in redhand and hevy penalty not less than Rs.1000/= should be imposed and this is the only way to stop this attitude. Railway officials should handle this issue without any fear or favour. more  
If I am not wrong, I remember that Railways raised fare in reservation coach by 25% to cover the loss due to ban on waitlisted or unreserved ticket holders in reservation coach. In parliament, the minister agreed that such travels will be totally stopped. It happened for few months, and later it was normal as usual. Railway never reduced the fare. We deserve better travel conditions or refund of excess 25% fare. more
