Some contact Nos are given-may be helpful if they respond. But the most problem is that neither TTEs are available after they once check tickets nor any security is available even in 2nd A.C. compartment. There has recently been some dacoity, burglary in some trains. Why TTEs shall not be available? Why complaint book is not readily available? Unless there are properly answered there is no reason to waste time writing them again and again. IRCTC should function better-they must follow instructions before issuing tickets. When available they must say what tickets they will issue before the payment is made. more  
Tjhis is not important but in rajdhani and shatabdi,passengers are looted by way of food and catering. Railway officials are mum in the matter when complained as The contractors are having an hold upto board level.The officials are heavily paid for such contracts
On ncomplaint,they dispose off the case by penalising an amount of 10,000 to 15000 or issue warning to contractors. 
It is seen that big caterers like MFC ,Kellogs etc want to take catering but they can not  pay big amount as bribe. They care for quality.
It is seen that railway officails allow this loot to be carried with extension on quotation  basis after expiry of the tender contract Why??Answer is clear.In Bhopal shatabdi,cockroach found in food. Penalty 10000 imposed and case disposed.In 22693, rajdhani,chickens nails and foot found in non veg curry, action not known
The food served is poor in quality and quantity, Why
Answer is political hold and currupt railway officials.
