Railway Needs to improve...

I think Railway must try to improve the following things as soon as possible:
1. Train Delay control. at present train means 2-3hrs late is common.
2. Announcement system must announce platform number and train coming on that prior / before train placed on the station.
3. people used to give 100-200 rupees to TTE and sit in the reservation coach, it should be controlled by applying some suitable step.
4. There should be welcome message like "Welcome at New Delhi" at platform, because in train it is difficult to know which station it is from the coach. sometime when we see from the window the station name appear, but not always.
5. RO water facility is good at station, but need to increase the number of booth.
6. At station like anand vihar, new delhi, there are rope is tied in the station, which occupy the space and creating difficulty for passengers. more

Good suggestion to implement by railway more  
Except for Passenger trains which are mostly used by rural poor people for short distances, the fare of all other trains should be increased by Rs. 0.1 or 10paise per Km. and that would generate enough funds to deploy TTE for each reservation compartment. We MUST learn that nothing is free - if you want convenience you have to pay a matching price. Also imagine the employment generated. Comparison by Shri Shailendra Kumar (experienced ) of total outgo per TTE and Air hostess is interesting. However there is no doubt that over security of jobs of Public Servants (including Executives) tends to make them casual in their approach to their jobs unless their personal interest is involved. I agree with Shri Shailendra Kumar (experienced ) in that over security of job must be eliminated. The discipline enforcement should be much stricter and rules for severe punishment including termination should be available for implementation.

Mr Shailendra Kumar has given a lot of good suggestions. Hope Railways will look into these suggestions. In all Shatabdi, Rajdhani, Duranto and super fast trains must have automatic door closing facility like metro trains...... more  
It is a matter of big big SHAME for Indian Railways, and bloody Indians too, that even after completion of 7 decades of national independence, people are talking about improvements in workings of Railways. Don't you have any brains or IQ of your own? This is India whose majority of the population is totally irresponsible, greedy, self-centered, want everything, if possible, free of all costs, have destructive mentality, generously indulge in vandalism of public property, they firmly believe that robbing public property (any item from any train) is their bloody constitutional right (and then defend themselves by styling themselves as OBC/SC/ST, etc., etc., etc.), they are filthy, disorganized and completely unhygienic when train travelling, PAN spitting is rampant amongst these lawless Indian train travellers. Well, the list is tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo long. THE TOP IT ALL IS SOMETHING FOR WHICH INDIA IS NOTORIOUS THE WORLD OVER AND UNBEATABLE. YES, IT IS CORRUPTION. Indian Railways is not meant for decent human beings. It is meant purely for cattle class people whose life value is A big big ZERO. Hence, no improvement possible even for next couple of centuries. Till then, keep suffering. You deserve it. You all called for it. You voted for its Minister. You voted for its Government. You allowed them to exploit you. more  
It is true that the 'illiterate' people, and I include the educated class also, have no civic sense. But which minister and which govt. are you referring to. In the last four years there has been considerable improvement in cleanliness on platforms and trains, though a lot more needs to be done. Do consider that we transport the highest number of passengers in the world and that too the 'cattle class' people as you call them. Travel is highly subsidized and previous govt. refrained from increasing fares due to political considerations. Remember Trivedi of TMC was asked to step down by Mamata because he suggested a minor fare increase! Railways have been used to dole out jobs by the ministers in the previous governments. more  
Except indian railway and auto rickshaws the doors of all moving vehicles close when on move. Till date i have not understood why the train doors do not close automatically before train starts moving (and that too at upto 160 km per hour) and why they are open while on move. Doors only on platform side should open on stations. TTE must stand at the door and ensure legit passengers board and then get in. He must be tasked to ensure that passengers get down at their designated station. After that train door must only open at the next authorised halt and not in between even if the train stops for any reason. All trains must have small pantry preferably one between two coaches manned by one pers with a handheld device. Food can be ordered and delivered at halt stations for which menu must be given to passengers on entry or it can be with the pantry pers who will record the orders on his hand held device and transmit, seek confirmation and tell the passengers. The small pantry can have beverages and small snacks biscuits etc for sale.This will prevent entry of all unauth vendors, thieves, passengers with unreserved ticket and so many other ills that plague even the prestigious rajdhanis and shatabdis. That the doors do not close , are not manned by tte is the main cause of many ills. The bus conductor doesnt let you in and also tells you to get down if you do not know your stop being new to the city.
Taxis close their door and are gps monitored by their companies. Private cars doors close. Aircrafts allow entry and exit of legit passengers, take orders for tea coffee snacks etc, serve them , get cleared the waste and the air tickets these days are cheaper than railways. Besides i am sure wages of air hostesses are less than the wages, allowances and deferred wages(pension) of TTEs. Air hostesses work in tight and risky environments and have no job security(airlines pack up), yet they perform verywell. Time to make the railway employees improve their efficiency. Privatisation is not the answer. Making railway employees work is the answer. more  
Tickets must be checked before boarding and not after, its simple common sense. Can someone be put down once train has started moving and the passenger is found to be illegit.NO. Checking tickets after someone has boarded and train is moving is totally illogical and just plain stupidity. A hand held scanner can easily identify and record the ticket of legit passenger. That's what they do in aircrafts. more  
How is your suggestion that "TTE must stand at the door and ensure legit passengers board and then get in" going to be implemented. Are you suggesting that each coach should have a TTE? Imagine the wage bill!!! more
