I fully agree that it's a partial rule which can be easily won if it's fought in consumer court. But no one has the time to do it. Thats a sad part. Even Indian Railway knows that.
I see that when a reserved seat passenger travels in Sleeper class(SL), the same seats are left open for day time travellers. I mean during day time any person taking a sleeper ticket will be able to sit on your reserved seat. This is a partiallity because if that's the case then let the Indian Railways allow day time traveller for even AC 3 tier, AC 2 tier and AC first class.
What i see here is a bunch of partial rules which i don't know who makes this? If any person seriously pursues, the Railways can be brought to it's knees because you are paying your hardly earned money for travel.
Let it be fair for all classes whether you travel in Sleeper, AC 3 tier, AC 2 tier and AC first class. Why the indian railways has to show the partiallity. It's not british rule now as i know of.
If the daily travel passenger can sit in the Sleeper compartment during day[again partial rule], why can't a e ticket waitting list people can't be considered. I don't think there is a need to ask Indian Railways for this. Someone has to file in court. But no one has the time as i earlier said.
