Hon"ble Railway Minister, Govt.of India


I have travelled by Train No.7230 on 13.11.2009 from Secunderabad to Chengannoor vide PNR No.[protected] and I have been allotted a side birth. I have noticed that during the time of Shri.Lalu Prasad Jadhav as Railyway Minister, one additional birth was accommocated in the middle portion of the side birth in order to accommocate more passengers. Later on, due to consumer complaints, the additional birth was removed by the Railways. When the additional birth was accommodated by the railyways, they have shifted the upper birth of the side birth to pave way for additional birth to be accommodated in the middle. However, when the same was revoked, they have simply removed the middle birth but KEPT THE UPPER PORTION OF THE BIRTH AS IT IS INSTEAD OF PLACING THE SAME IN THE MIDDLE. This is causing very embrassment to the passengers since they are unable to sleep in the upper portion of the side birth properly particularly a person like me having 6 feet height and also for the older people. While returning from Kerala by 2617 Mangala Experess from Ernakulam till Manmand on 20.11.2009, I have been allotted a side upper birth PNR No.[protected]
and again the same problem was faced by me.

My suggestion to the Railways is that the side portion of the births to be kept in the same place instead of keeping the same as it is i.e. height of the birth to be increased by putting the birth in the same place (exactly middle) from where it was removed in order to accommocate additional birth.

This will definitely enable passengers to have a good night sleep even if allotted with side births.

Your early action in the matter will be highly appreciated.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

Sunny George
