[Resolved]  Indian Railway's Services — Anomaly in allotment of berths

Dear sir,
On 7th Sept. 2009 nine berths are booked From Bhusawal (Centre Rly. Stn.) in forenoon between 11.20 hrs to 11.36 hrs. to proceed to Haridwar on 19th Oct.2009 by train No.2715 (Sachkhand Express) and 8477 (Utkal Exp) against PNR No.[protected],[protected],[protected] and[protected]. All the female passangers are scheduled to board in the train at Bhusawal only. All the berths are on waiting list bearing W/L Nos.RLWL/60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67 & 68 in train No.2715 and RLWL/79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, & 87 in train No.8477.
But, it is surprising to note that one berth booke on 7th Sept. 2009 in the afternoon at Bhusawal between 16.18 hrs. to 16.18 hrs. to proceed to Haridwar on 19th Oct.2009 by same trains against PNR Nos.[protected] and[protected] has been alloted confirmed berths in both trains by alloting berth No.12 (LB) in Coach No. S7 in train No.2715 and 33 (LB)in Coach No.S8 in train No.8477. How can it be, unless there exists some error/flaw in the online programme itself ? Will you kindly look in to the problem and eliminate the error under intimation to me, as such error causes inconvenience to consumer, specifically female passangers.

Similerly, on the same date i.e. 07th Sept.2009 nine berths are booked from Bhusawal (Centre Rly. Stn.) between 16.05 and 16.30 hrs. for performing back journey from Haridwar to Bhusawal by train Nos. 4042 and 2716 on 03rd Nov.2009. Thoughn confirmed tickets are issued by alloting Coach No. and berth/seat Nos. but none of the female passangers is alloted lower berth inspite requisition form was filled in to allot lower berths.
Again, it is observed with surprise and pain that in case of confirmed tickets issued from Centre Rly. Station Bhusawal against PNR Nos.[protected] and[protected] to perform journey from Haridwar to Bhusawal by train Nos.4042 on 03rd Nov.2009 and 2716 on 04th Nov.2009, the passanger (Female) has been alloted "LOWER " berth. Why such disparities are could not be followed. Here again above examples gives room to the consumer that in "Railway Reservation system there exists some flaw which allows to the peerson sitting on "Booking window" or "Controlling room" can manipulate the things to his whims.

Please investigate the matter and arrange to eliminate the error from entire net and confirm per return e mail.

How much in first place do you care about the convenience of females?
Have you checked with your conscience first that you have treated all the females(you met or did not meet) properly till date and have not made any anomaly in treatment to them?

Before trying to change the system it will be more useful if we try to change our thoughts and our society first?
The system is just a reflection of our society and the people living in it in general.
Our thoughts and actions should be broad enough to change the system.
Try to Change yourself first before trying to change the system.

If our thoughts are narrow-minded, changing the systems is just an illusion of the betterment of the society. If you mis-treat your family, your loved ones, the females in your family or may be outside it, your thoughts and beliefs are not broad enough and deep rooted in orthodox systems and beliefs, what will this online system do to a greater cause of Indian society;)

Agreed that more and more such consumers should come forward to correct the Indian systems. But I guess it is more and more required that such consumers/people come forward for a general upliftment of the society and some stupid beliefs and orthodox ways of living like dowry systems, harrassment to women, ill-treatment to members of family, society in general, depriving people of choices they make and the life they want to lead, forcing your views/decisions on the family members esp. females etc etc.

How often have you forced your decisions on others? do you ever reflect on such things?
Railways forcing you to take a seat is no big deal..compared to this.
I hope you will agree that Indian society needs more of social/family upliftment first.

Let us strive to make a better society first instead of better systems.

yeah right, people who themselves commit disparities in treatment to others, force their decisions on others/family members etc..DO NOT have the right to speak about flaws in the systems or other people's whims. If pain is what you give others, pain is what you get:).
Very Bad part on the complainant.If you mistreat, give pain to others for anything, you would be deprived of precisely the same thing.Probably, railway man did the right thing.
So here's wishing you all the pain in this world, for all the pain that you have given others.

Indian Railways — disparity in Internet booking system

Dear Sir.
Sub: Internet booked tickets are non refundable.

I would like to invite your kind attention that on 30th Sept 2010, I had a confirmed reservation from Jalna to Thane by 1402 Nandigram express vide PNR no. [protected], transaction ID: [protected]. But because of Political tension prevailed on that day (Ayodhya issue), no bus service was available to reach Jalna Railway station. From my working place to Jalna Railway station is 80 KM and without any public transportation system, one can not reach.
At 16.00 hours when I realized that I was unable to reach Jalna, I decided to cancel my Ticket. But in internet, it was showing “Chart prepared, cancellation not possible”.
Hence I had to loss Rs. 359.00 for no fault of me. May I therefore request the railway authority to make system to refund the ticket booked by Internet?
 The railways should encourage internet booking as it reduces crowd at Reservation counters.
 Railways can reduce staffs.
 Railways, Banks are getting extra revenue if booked in internet.
 People prefer as it can be done sitting at home.
There should not be any disparity between a window booking and internet booking. The laws should be common for all. However one present Law is acceptable that W/L tickets will automatically be cancelled in case of Internet booking.
 Hence my request to you to refund my money of above PNR no. towards uniform judgment and Human right.
 It is also the fact that TTE on duty will allot that vacant berth. Then how Railway can earn double fares from the same berth?
 Is it not injustice to a man who booked ticket in advance and because of No fault of him, he is loosing money because of silly laws?
Hope, you will be kind enough to modify the laws and refund by money.
Thanking you .
Yours faithfully.
