I traveled in 3rd AC coach with my son who is only 3 yrs old from Nagercoil to Chennai in train no. 0612 Chennai Express (date - 11/11/2007). The 3rd AC coach was full of cockroaches and when the passengers enquired the TTE about this, there was no proper response. Most of the passengers spent a sleepless night that day owing to this problem. Moreover, the PEST TREATMENT was done only on 28/07/07 by a Madurai based Company called "PEST CONTROL INDIA (P) LTD", Tallakulam. When the pest treatment was done only on July of 2007, how could we find so much of cockroaches in November?? This shows that the PEST CONTROL company has not done any pest treatment and, god only knows, whoever has got the money that has been allotted for this treatment!?!

    I traveled from Vishakapatnam to Chenni on 16th & 17th Jan by Madras Mail, train number 2819 in Second AC. My PNR nymber is 640-867803. I forgot the one bag under berth 37 and the coatch was passed for cleaning. I went back to my residence and tryed to call and complain about my missing lagguage. Since I travelled on 2'nd AC there is no chances of steeling that lagguage by some one. I came back to the railway station at 12:00 PM and enquired about the missing bag. SM asked to contact station inspector. Station inspector told that he did not get any such missing reports and refused to take complaint. He asked me to lodge complain to police. I went to police station. They did not take complaint and took details from me and said that they'll coordinate with the Vizayawada SM and revert to me. Mr. Raj Gopal took details from me, he did not gave any complaint number nor he took written complaint from me. When I asked about his contact details he gave his office land line number as 044-25348556. I think there is some fissy about my missing laguage. Since I traved in 2'nd AC there are no chances of lossing the laguage. The railways employee must have received the same and taken by some one. I feel that they dont want to enquire about that. Can some one keep light on this and enquire why they are not showing any interest to take written complaint. My Name is J.Nageswara Rao. My contact number is 9940022683. Land line number is : 044-65713949. Address is : No-31, Anna Street, Karapakam, Chennai - 96.

    This is concerning about misbehavior in Arakkonam Jn railway station ticket counter no 4, on 19 th feb 2009 at 11.05 pm (Night).

    I was going to buy advance ticket for next day to chennai journey, due to heavy queue in morning i always brought ticket at one day before. when i back to home i ask the Up and Down ticket for Arakkonam Jn to Chennai Central was Rs 24 (EMU train) i gives Rs 30 to the respective counter no 4 ticket staff (that time the only counter will open at 11.05 pm on 19 feb) he said to me give Rs 4 as change, but that time i have no change, In behind they displayed Rs 5 coins and Rs 1 coins rows, i asked regarding no change from myself, he said then you come next day to brought a ticket! why they will interface my personal work to suggest to come on next day. i will argue with him, this is not to tell like to come tomorrow, i continued argue with him he suddenly said go out and collect from beggar, i am very heartbreaking about that word he said, I will leave that place without brought a ticket. Rest of night I am no sleep due to that word alleged on ticket counter staff.

    Please take into the consideration for higher authorities in this issue, to make cruel action that will misbehavior the fellow passenger
