MY DEAR FRIENDS , HOW WILL YOU FEEL WHEN YOU GET THIS MESSAGE ,
This happened just now ,when I was booking my tickets back from Tituccchirapally for the 16th Novemebr . Should this not have been flashed before debitting , so that I could have opted for another train .
Now I am forced to cancel this ticket which will cost me Rs.180/ If I book another ticket and I opt for book only if atleast one lower berh given ; and if it repeats again , I will land up paying another cancellation charges .
IS THIS THE ONLY WAY TO RAISE REVENUE FOR RAILWAYS ?WHAT SORT OF CUNNING STRATEGY IS THIS ?
I am helpless as many other rail pasengers / Customers . more
exactly four months in
advance and allotted upper berths to senior citizens and when I lodged a
complaint I received a
reply "system - generated allotment " which can not be corrected and you
manage with your co-
passengers. It was 17th October, by Rajdhani Ahmadabad New Delhi Express.
To our utter surprise
lots of seats went vacant and few LB were occupied by youngsters .Must
thank TC who was kind enough
to adjust us without any extra payment which to our experience is next to

But created a flutter as they deducted the money first ,then they flashed
the news saying that your opted berth not met . more
In that case ticket shouldn't have been booked otherwise what's the meaning of such option.
Railway has become one of the most corrupt organisation openly looting people. Such open nexus with agents helping them even by unnecessarily modifying the earlier good working booking site is clear as daylight. Actually in a monopoly state they are least bothered what the common man says. more
It's really socking to see your post and surprised why you are here in this local circle. If you compare everything of present world with that of 50 years back (just because you are 70 years old) and get astonished how things are improving then please be at your present circle and don't enter into this Local circle, which is established to point out for improvement from what's available in present days and not for comparing with that of 50 years back and clap.
While I do agree that Indian Railways handle heavy traffic, please appreciate that's applicable for every department in India. Then in your opinion we shouldn't criticize any wrongdoings and corrupt practices.
It's really funny to see someone is judged based on his/her age (as asked by you and you are in your Seventies so you know everything). For your kind information I am 59 years old Engineer, and come across the transformation from old days technical hand-notes to modern computerized world in my career of 35 years (still going on). So do you think I need your unnecessary interference (god knows what's your intention) supporting what's wrong/corrupt is happening, just because it's better than old days- RIDICULOUS!!.
I have visited about 18 countries during my career (not with political Public money but by my Employer) including the most populated China and seen how the world has improved in last 2 decades, while in India Railways still consider a train running @ 50 KM/Hour (theoretical) as Super-fast and charge extra for that (Oh yes - 50 years back speed was 40 km/hour so be happy). Please spread your access a little wider out of Politics / etc., etc., and then comment please or most preferably refrain from commenting in local circle just to give a politically motivated comment that everything what's happening now!!! is excellent.
I have worked with few Ex-Railway officials in my career and shocked to know how corrupt that organisation is and there are people who even take bribe from their own colleague (of other department) to clear their tour bill / salary arrears etc.
Do you think we are there only to criticize- NO. There were hundreds of suggestions everyday in local circle but who bothers? Criticism is still the best way to highlight wrongdoings/ shortcomings and anybody interested can take corrective measure based on criticism, they don't need detail project report to understand the corrective measures, if interested.
MONEY IS DEDUCTED .
I AM REALLY SURPRISED TO NOTE THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE TO SUPPORT
THIS PROCEDURE , INSTEAD OF POINTING OUT THE WRONG METHOD
ADOPTED BY IRCTC OF DEDUCTING THE MONEY FIRST , THEN SAYING WE
ARE NOT ABLE TO BOOK YOUR TICKET . more
Pl excuse me if I support the faulty action. I personally feel that sincerity is weakened by so many factors. The staff should realize the sufferings met due to improper/delayed message.
So far I did not encounter such sufferings. If it happens one in thousand ,may be ignored.
Outsourcing or handing over to private enterprise is not the solution, absolutely.
Upgrading the system to match the present need is lacking, because the network system software is upgraded by soft ware giants at Himalayan cost frequently.
It is possible that data entry software staffs are not adequately qualified / or outsourced to an ill equipped contractor.
Well, tough time ahead to manage such situation. It is a complex area. more
