Indian Railways / regular late running of train

1 India Review updated:

This is related to 2RJ/3JS Jharsuguda sambalpur DMU Passenger running between Jharsuguda and Sambalpur and 4JS Sambalpur Jharsuguda DMU passenger. This train has not run in its scheduled time in any single day. The distance between both the stations is only 49 Kms and travel time is 1hr 05 minutes but the train departs 1.00 hr late every day from Jharsuguda which is its originating Station and accumulates late on the way too. Consequentially it also departs sambalpur at an unknown time basing on the late, with almost no passengers due to its unscheduled departure time causing loss to public money. It is unfortunate in which route buses runs overloaded trains runs on loss. Will the Railway ministry will look into the matter and take steps to check the loss of hundreds of man hour loss of students and employees using this train?

    Every day, morning 8pm to 9pm. Kalwa station. Its like animals being transported from one place to another. I have a first class pass... but can make out people from 2nd class traveling in the 1st class compartment. If the government cannot increase the no. of trains at least it can make an effort to make sure people with the right ticket are traveling in the respective class.

    I appreciate the efforts taken by Indian Railways for safety and security of its passengers. However, railways never take efforts to sort out the problems created by its own staff. Their staff feel that they are owners of Railway and have power more than that of the Minister. If one travels from Mumbai CST to Poona, during peak hours, we can see that employees of railways under pretext of staff board in each and every compartment, can't railways allot their staff a particular compartment so that other passengers can travel freely.

    Secondly, for allotting reservation, the booking staff have mutual understanding with outsider /agents. One cannot say that booking clerk is doing charity to an agent who used to meet the booking clerk inside and outdide station.

    I can challenge the Railway Minister that in any time we can get confirmed sleeper class tickets and also can confirmed the waiting list ticket particularly from Mumbai CST. These booking clerks in consultation with agents, spoil the image of Railways.

    I appeal to the Hon'ble Railway Minister Shri Laluprasad Yadav, I appeal to the Railway Board Chairman, I appeal to the Station Master Mumbai CST to make efforts to stop the mal-practices conducted by their staff particularly in Mumbai CST by putting special task force in computer centre.

    I am first class traveller, who travels from borivali to vashi everyday. To avoid rushy crowd in the train and get some comfort while traveling I travel by first class compartment. But nowdays it has become quite annoying traveling by first class since, beggars, second class travellers, eve teasers & eunuchs also travels in the same first class compartment. If we protest against them, they react as if they have right to travel by first class even without the right authority.
    I would appreciate if you can do something to avoid such nuisance to make our traveling better and comfortable. Thank you.

    the new addition of berth in sleeper class between side upper & lower had increase 9 berth in compartment but it is more congested, unhealthier, unadjustable
    i request to shri laloo prasad yadav to change this as per earlier
    we r ready to pay more but cant able to travel such a inconveient manner for more than 12 to 50 hours
    offcouse this is only a funda for increasing profit but plz. think of us
    as we all know in a single compartment more than 50 waiting & non waitng passenger travel with having any seat reserve railway get huge profit from it & also from tatkal seva
    if u calculate as per total cost & earning II sleper class get more profit than II & III A/C
    at last if railway benefit more by II clase then my u r acting so negitive with middle class people
    plz. make possible arrangement & make the 6+2 only

    the 8478 Kalinga Utkal Express cancelled via Rourkela Route and running in a diverted route since last 2 month due to the devastating flood causing damage to railway route in between Balasore and Kharagpur.This is the only train from Rourkela to Delhi and also only train to Balasore from Rourkela. We Rourkela people are suffering a lot due to the diversion of the train. Though many unimportant trains are being restored after the reparing of the route, this 8478 Kalinga Utkal Express still running in diverted route. Every time we get a new date and date is being posponed for this train.
    We face immense problem for the diversion of the train. Therefore we request you to to run 8478 Kalinga Utkal Express in original route.

    India Railways
    India

    I regulary used to have journy by Indian Railway. But when I want to purchase any cold drinks from rail counters excessive charges were charged each time (e.g. 500ml Slice bottle MRP Rs 24 is sold for Rs 30). And if you ask for the rate difference, their orrogance comes out. Please do something on this issue if anybody can. This is happened with me on bhusawal station. By Pune Nagpur express.

    Indian Railways - This is nothing but cheating

    United States

    Train is not started at its source station and when I tried to cancel waiting list E-ticket, I have got a message "The chart was prepared for this ticket you can not cancel this ticket". This is nothing but cheating. Govt organization is cheating people.

    They are not refunding and in addition to this they are saying "waitlist ticket = with out ticket".

    Indian Railways - Delay of 4 hrs from the originating point
    India

    I was to travel to raipur from bhopal on 19th april so to attend an urgent meeting on 20th at 11 AM but i got to know at 6.30 PM on 19th that the said train i.e chattisgarg express is delayed for 4 hrs, since start. My concern is, when the railway officials are knowing that the Train No 18238 is delayed since its start then why the concerned & so called sincere railway officials have not taken any corrective steps, to avoid more delay.

    Subject: habitual late “ DEE JP SF SPL train number 09722” and chain puling at Rewari

    To how may its concern

    This is regarding “Delhi Jaipur super fast special” run late almost daily by one hour. Right time is 4.10 but habitual come late to platform around 4.10 from NCR. I hope the timing should be change to 5 pm which help passenger coming from office taking short leave.
    No action for the culprit.
    Also thought its sf but someone daily pull chain at Rewari and hundreds of passenger get down. This should be stop.
