Some travellers have genuine intension to bye tickets from unreserved ticket counters to travel to local destinations.
But when you go to platform number 1 unreserved ticket counter you find a long line waiting for their term to arrive.
The surprising fact is that the Railway Authority of Sealdah station only allowes 2 ticket reservation counter to open their window at the main entrance of platform number 1.
The excessive crowd with all intention to pay the railway department with Rs.5/10/15/20 sees their trains departing and keep on waiting for their turn to get the ticket.
The Railway Aurhority of Sealdah station for years does not pay any attention to the situation.
They do not give an ear or eye to the problem.
It seems that the ticket counters in the Sealdah Station was made for parmanently keeping them closed at the rush hours.
The other two railway empoyees sitting in the only two open windows in Sealdah station tries to worl like a machine to provide them printout of the local train tickets.
I wonder why the Railway Department wants to open only two ticket counters and who is restricting them to open the other windows for local ticket reservation?
Is it a normal situation?
The tickets can be sold properly to the
local travellers with all the ticket counters in Sealdah open. The railway employees sitting in the counter printing tickets and giving the same to the local passengers can also work properly without any burden.
Any fighing or stamped like situation in overcrowded Sealdah station can also be avoided. more
Another thing in Bongaon section of Sealdah division there occur lot of unnecessary fight while boarding or getting down. I seeing this happening for more than thirty years. I feel sad to say we need some body like RPF to enforce discipline. more
