NEW COMPARTMENTS WITH ELEGANT LOOK, EXTERIOR PAINTED TASTEFULLY AND WITH MATCHING INTERIOR DESIGN:
MEANINGFUL CHANGES :
- There is more space as we enter from the Platform into the compartment foyer.
- The new design in A/C 3 Tier some extra moving place is there for the Top Berth passenger . Thanks because I used to find it difficult to wriggle in as the head will hit the roof. Both up & down this trip I got upper berth as a 75 year old, even booked 18 days ahead.
- The Designers have also provided hangers for 4 water Bottles below the tables for the Lower & Middle Berth , likewise stands for the upper berths on top. Side berths haven’t been fitted for paucity of space.
- Toilets have been designed to provide a dry place to stand with hooks in place and handles for support .
- Toilets have 'built in' Trash bins , aircraft style , giving more moving space . Could have been the influence of 2 Top former executives of Airlines . Like wise new blood is required in the Railway Board .
LOT OF SCOPE FOR MORE DEVELOPMENT IN SOME IMPORTANT AREAS :
* Toilets still the ratio of 1:3 for western : Squatting [only one Western in a compartment with total 4 toilets] . This is despite the Circle members voicing to increase the number of western Toilets over 4 years .These days using western toilet is the order of the day by youngsters and the working class . Not any more by the only the old and the infirm . Why not change from the same pattern that was followed 70 years back. British Babus had that one western in case their peons had to travel with us. Past 4 years the Circle members have been pointing out the need for more western toilets .
* Regarding the stink from the toilet there has been several suggestions to install Exhaust Fans in the toilet . This suggestions were taken up initially & some installations were made and then dropped . In this case could have installed at the manufacturing stage itself by some forethought while designing.
* While the exterior and the interior are Glossy , glamorous to attract and impress the Customer /passenger , the manner in which the fittings are done attracts comments. Is there a shortage of staff in the Furnishing department or are they are overworked to release the Compartments in haste before an unrealistic time schedule ? Look at the attachment how hastily and haphazardly the Tap at the Wash Basin is fixed .
* In a brand new Compartment Barely 6 months old there was constant leak from the roof in B2 Toilet [western] . One consolation there was an effort to temporarily seal the leak with unsuccessful plastering. Water may be leaking from the Tank above . One, considered the most precious considered essential world over is being wasted unmindfully . It is beyond a passenger’ capacity to stop it , except inform, as done here.[It would have been futile to call the complaint number ].Next there will be problem when the Tank gets dry particularly this being an overnight train.
* ISN’T THERE A PRACTICE TO CHECK ALL THIS FROM THE STARTING STATION .In this case Tuticorin Junction there was sufficient time till evening 8.00 PM before departure . Once again I like to ask this question , is there shortage of staff . In case there was genuine reason for lack of time the inspection staff should inform the wayside stations [Madurai, Trichy – Div H.Q.’s] or at least the destination station which may have more facility staff and time .
THESE FEW SUGGESTIONS HAVE GENERATED WHILE GOING AROUND TO MEET FRIENDS FROM B2 & B3 COMPARTMENTS[A/C 3 tier] . THE TRAIN HAD A TOTAL OF 24 COMPARTMENTS WHICH I COULDN’T HOP IN AND OUT. A/C 2 Tier, Sleeper Class , Unreserved ones.
We don’t mind any amount of Advertisements inside the compartments as long as it doesn’t overshadow the Berth & Seat Numbers. IT SHOULDN’T BE LIKE THE SCREEN WHILE BOOKING E-TICKET.
RAIL OFFICERS SHOULD PASS ON THE FEED BACKS FROM THE CIRCLES ABOUT THESE INEVITABLE NEEDS OF THE CUSTOMERS.
WHY MODIJI HAS OPENED THIS PORTAL , ONLY TO PROVIDE HIS SUBJECTS THE NEED TO BE FULFILLED BY THE GOVERNMENT SERVANTS.
It is no doubt good to impress the customers with glitter & glamour . It does give the sense of feeling important for us the customers .
But shouldn't we be accorded what what comforts are due to us and the absolute needs fulfilled dutifully by the Government Servants. more
