[Resolved]  Indian Railways — OVERCROWDING OF SLEEPER COACH

I am a regular traveller between Chennai and Ernakulam by train nos 6042/6041, Alapuzha-Chennai Express. From Chennai to Alapuzha, after Trichur, season ticket holders are allowed in sleeper class. The sleeper coaches would be like an overcrowded general compartment, with passengers sitting on top berths, standing on the corridirs. It is not possible for a reserved passenger even to go to to toilet.

The Indian Railways should ensure that sleeper class remains reserved.

In case IR wants to accomodate season ticket holders, IR should restrict the reservation upto Trichur and declare all the coaches as unreserved.

there is only one train in a week from vijayawada to rajasthan/jodhpur that is train no 6125
earlier there were 3 trains
there is so much ruch during unseason also
during season many families face problem of reservation
so, i request u to start more trains towards rajasthan. it is the sixth bussiest staton in india
As per my knoledge This is illigal to travel in reserved compartment with a seson tickit. but In India this crime is regularised. there is no option to bare the pain or to book tickit of AC compartment.
There should be some check in the section referred above and this complaint need to be mailed to the CCM(PS) and GM of the concerned Railways which will be available in the reference of the Time Table of the concerned Railway. As for Season Tickets(ST) there are certain trains which have nominated coaches for carrying the ST holders if the Train you mentioned has restriction mentioned in Time Table for short distance passengers, then surely the Railway has to take action against them. This is for your information and necessary action.
