Hi Guys.
I have just now booked a ticket in 12009 shatabdi for a senior citizen female from mumbai to ahmedabad
I have been charged Rs 835 after applying senior citizen femal concession , but i guess fare should have been Rs 670
I guess dynamic fare has been charged as at the time of booking it flashed Rs 319 as dynamic fare
wanted to know is dynamic fare started on 12009 shatabdi exp also?
Also what is the calculation for the same as on ticket there is no description
On ticket It states as below:
Ticket fare- 590
Carering charge 245
Total 835
Are catering charges really Rs 245?

The Summon:-

A colleague of mine returned from Mumbai after a long weekend aboard Konkan Kanya Express. She was able to manage a tatkal ticket with boarding at Panvel. Unfortunately the allotted coach was next to General coach. The train arrived at Panvel and it was brim to capacity as usual with all unreserved passengers occupying all reserved compartments.

With great difficulty she managed to the get inside a nearby coach and somehow with great effort managed to reach her berth. With all these unreserved pax clogging the passage way with no rooms even for moving a leg and add to it no TTEs in sight, she lost lost her temper.

She dialled 100 control room and asked for Railway Control Room No.. The Phone Rang.... She just shouted the officials for the poor service and demanded urgent safai of unreserved passengers. Such was the intensity of that phone call that in a short while the TTE magically appeared from thin air and at Khed RPF entered the coach. The unreserved passengers disappeared in a fraction of second and the journey continued with no more problems enroute. Only then did other reserved passengers started scolding the poor TTE.
Lessons to learn:-
1. Phone calls in such circumstances will ensure that reserved coaches stay only for reserved.
2. If needed by take the fellow passengers into confidence

What is needed in this Rail Budget?
Introduction of a new CSTM Ratnagiri Passenger departing CSTM at 22:45 hours and arriving Ratnagiri at 07:00 hours. Similarly it can depart Ratnagiri at 10 am to arrive CSTM at 19:00 hours.

RPF to patrol the RSA trains and deboard all passengers who have unlawfully entered before the originating station.

Woopy i salute the lady who had courage and dialed the police control room for help.
and i am even surprised how did TTE and police came in fraction of seconds. Did she used any name who is at higher post in RPF or in politics?
Even i have been alloted seat no 3 and 6 for my journey to madgao in Konkan kanya exp for march even though i booked 2 months advance.
i dont face any nuisance like this.

We have 2 tickets till madgao for 12133. Does this train has unofficial stop at Thivim station daily for giving passing to other train?
As we are heading towards calangute, Thivim would be convenient for us.

12133 used to halt at either of the followinfg ststions- Pernem, Thivim, Karmali- for crossings until last week but since Sunday, this train is being given a clear run and that is why it is running bang on time now!

Re# 970212-5            Tags   Past Edits
Yes there are chances that it might stop at either Pernem or Thivim or Karmali provided it is running approx half hour late for Netravati crossing.... Else u will have to travel all d way to Madgaon.....

I will say u can also get down at Pernem or Karmali if it stops there even for half a minute....

Thanks guys.. Will try for my luck and get down if it stops at any of the station.
Getting down at madgao and comming back to calangute is very inconvenient as taxi fares are high and need to change 2 buses and rickshaw to reach calangute.
