4.the application had train no.in which extra sleeper coach intended,date,total expected passenger and cause
5.the letter was sent for approval and i was called after 3 days
6.after 3 days my letter was rejected
7.reason being i had asked for brahmaputra mail,a nr train,and no extra coaches could be attached as it was running upto its "full limit"
8.i was suggested farakka express
9.i agreed and paid rs.50000,as security fee
10.i was called after 10days for remaining fare
11.after 10 days i had to pay up and down fares for 72 passengers for 500km(the minimum chargeable distance for reserved coach,though sbg to pnbe is 298km)
12.two days prior to journey my extra coach was stationed at sbg
13.on the day of bookin farakka express became 13 hours late
14.i rcvd a call from drm mldt that do i want any alternate train
15.i opted for sdah bsb express
16.the coach was attached and we boarded and decorated the coach at sbg
17.coach was detached at dnr
18.same for reverse
19.on returning rly staff came and checked whether all the fans and other fittings were in place
20.after 7 days i was called and refunded my security by cheque
21.railways were thankful to me instead of me being thankful to them.....
