Sleeper Class to be converted to General Class

Some time back Indian Railways has announced that low occupancy Sleeper Class will be converted to General Class during daytime. In my opinion who ever has suggested this is totally unaware of the ground realty. Even in the normal time the Sleeper Class travel is a curse. Toilet Hygiene conditions are in a very pathetic state. Coach Cleanliness is beyond imagination. This way railways will be losing a lot of passenger revenue.

In my opinion this decision should be immediately withdrawn.

Instead TTE should allow passengers by charging the difference. They should be given incentive on collection slabs. This way even railways will also get some additional revenue. more

By reducing number of stops and extending halt time in one station will give opportunity for cleaning and filling water. scheduling also helps in avoiding overlaps on track in critical locations. more  
Staging necessary. Stage improvements. Extend successes. Example - Self-cleaning toilets, sensor based. more  
If this news is true, then railways are employing medicine which itself is worse than the disease! Who will believe that occupancy in sleeper class is 'Low'? They want to solve the problem by not eliminating the cause, but the problem itself. Such an absurd decision must be prevented by the authorities, if not, local circles should take it up with them. more  
Cleanliness in all classes in Indian rails in general is in a very bad shape now-a-days because of the negligence inability of the concerned railways authorities in getting the allotted works properly done by the respective workmen force. Equally, we the passengers, are also responsible for making the toilets and the compartments in which we are travelling as a whole dirty by scattering refuse all over, spitting in the wash basins without flushing and using the toilets and leaving them without ensuring that these are left behind fit for others' use. After all these can't be cleaned by rail staff in each stoppage. Unless the passengers themselves take care for cleanliness while travelling in a train, the present condition is unlikely to improve. more  
Fully agree. Terrible hygiene and coach cleanliness are beyond imagination. Alongside railway tracks is pathetic. Biotoilets block toilet ventilation. Non-functional bio-toilets worse! CAG reported around 2,00,000 non-functional biotoilets in the year 2017! more
