Its proud to have the online ticket booking services in our country in this era of technolgy.
On last 22-Aug-2011 during my E-ticktet booking with IRCTC in Porbandar-Howrah Express , from Porbandar to Ahmedabad,i have online booked 4 tickets after checking the convinient times of train ( 06:20 DEP from Porbandar and 15:15 ARV at Ahmedabad).
I was clearly debited the sum of 758 Rs. and also alloted the E-Ticket. But when i reach the station at morning 06:20 on my journey date ( i.e. 24-Aug-2011) i was asked that the there is no any train on this time. Porbandar-Howrah will depart from porbandar today but at 15:30. Also i was shouted upon and asked to call before booking the E-tickets.
I had 2 senior citizens and a 2 years old child for whom it was trouble getting the other mode of transportation in festival seasion. Also one of the member booked in the ticket had to travel by bus with no seat due to emergency work.
This is really not fair. Even as on date if you open up the IRCTC website, its showing the wrong times and displays 06:20 DEP from porbandar for Porbandar-Howrah express and even on E-ticket , i got he same time which is the proof with me.
Need strong actions on such non sense things.
It does not make me feel any proud considering what THEY offering us for what we are paying to THEM.
