Hey, hey, hey, I am not promoting this TIPS culture, I have time and again said - DO NOT TIP at all. But if you choose to do so, then DO SO handsomely. And then, a BIG SHAME on this - "You cant believe how rudely these hooligans are behaving with a solo lady and when we all united and started revolting they just left the scene". - This is exactly where YOU kind of guys are doing nothing. Absolutely NOTHING on trains. Someone, talking rudely with a LADY co-passenger, and you LEFT this so called hooligan scot-free? SHAME ON YOU and your co passengers. YOU must have caught these guys who misbehaved with a lady and handed over them to the RPF. You are making a mess of TIPS on trains, when you could not complain about someone (or more) misbehaving with a LADY passenger. This is the problem in...
INDIA. People like you DO NOT act where and when necessary. But people like you keep ranting the same lines time and again. Shame on you that you let those so called hooligans were let off because you were more worried about the TIPs than that of the safety of a LADY co-passenger.

I do pity on you on certain things..first of all you don't konow how to join in a debate in an open forum..maybe that's the reason why you chose to call me "hey,hey,hey".I believe in giving respect to each and every person and hereby I said that some people tip others so that they can take undue rights from them or rather can ask them to bear their tantrums (I even saw people giving their stale tiffin box to wash and then tip them for 50/-) .. Secondly you are bounded by some social boundaries and I had my belief that I can think above these social statas like Gender,Class etc that's why I protested against the entire passengers of the compartment rather than solving the plight of a single lady..(though the lady was also strong enough to shield her own defense)..FYI we had lodged a complain in Hwh Grp...
on tip of RPF and they asked us to give witness when they will take action in nabbing those...
Thirdly and most importantly try to think beyond certain boxes like Buying people by tipping handsomely..You live in Democratic country where an elected government collect taxes on behalf of you to pay that persons salary...Complaining is not taking his job away but to give or ratger teach him a lesson that Don't force someone for your benefit..Grow up and do some rational thinking because oneday when you give him a 500 note and he will say "sir diwali is near..itne se kya hota"

This ain't the US where tips are a mandatory part. Tipping is 'actively discouraged' by IR, then why do it. Infact, I applaud the OP for complaining to the DRM since they're already paid for doing their jobs[they are paid sufficient in the first place unlike the US whose custom you are trying to copy]. Tipping is an extremely im-perfect system and it had be good if it doesn't increase.

The problem is that many vendors, waiters, janitors & other train staff 'demand' tips as per their rates as if it's some kind of entitlements that they have right to. The fact is that tips are a Colonial Raj Era Hangover that isn't going from the psyche of people doing physical work in eatery joints, restaurants and Indian Trains (esp Prestigious trains). Just as Kolkata restaurants in Park Street and other Central locations need to shed their Raj Era arrogance, similarly many IR train staff people also need to shed off these Raj era habits.
Tips or "Baksish" in Hindi is something that is supposed to be given voluntarily to staffers so the giving person should decide the rates rather than the recipient 'demanding' the amount. Once a beggar gave me back a Rs. 2 Coin in my hand since he refused it. It's not his fault since many foreigners in New Market and other Central Kolkata locations have spoiled beggars by giving them alms of above Rs. 100/- ... :(

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
