Mar 25 2015 (17:35)   RPF Ensures No More Shoving to Board Trains

BENGALURU: Stampede-like scenes outside an unreserved compartment as a train arrives and bribing of coolies to block seats may soon be a thing of the past in long-distance trains from the city.
The Railway Protection Force (RPF), which has introduced a queue system for the general compartments in three trains, plans to make it mandatory for all long-distance trains from April.
The Udyan Express (Mumbai), Rani Chennamma Express (Kolhapur) and Karnataka Express (New Delhi) were chosen under the initiative launched by the force six months ago to improve passenger experience in congested

trains.
But soon, as any long-distance train chugs in, the platforms will see passengers queuing up with baggage in tow and RPF personnel keeping a close watch.
Louis Amutham, senior divisional security commissioner of RPF’s Bengaluru division, said, “From April, we will ensure that the general compartments of all long-distance trains from City and Yeshwantpur stations will have a queue system, particularly as the summer rush will be tremendous.”
To facilitate this, RPF personnel who were involved in other duties will be posted at both stations to monitor passengers, he said
Happy Campers
The RPF has succeeded in bettering the travel experience for many, going by the response from passengers.
R Haribabu, a retired government employee heading to Ballari by Karnataka Express, told Express, “I have seen these kind of queues outside the general coaches in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and even Rajasthan. It is the first time I am seeing it in Bengaluru. This is very good and I hope they introduce it in all stations.”
Sudhaman, a painter, who was travelling from Bengaluru for the first time since taking up an assignment in the city, was a happy man as he sat at the window seat of Udyan Express.
“My friend, a regular traveller, cautioned me about the clamour for seats on this train. He used to pay `50 to one of the porters around to block a seat for him,” he said. But Sudhaman did not have to pay anyone and got the seat by arriving well before time.
WHAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED
A major problem when it comes to unreserved compartments is when trains are sent from the maintenance yard with the doors open. This is when many jump on board the moving train. “If the trains are sent with the doors shut, then we can open them and let passengers in one by one,” said Prabha Jyoti of the RPF.
Another problem is that the single woman cop posted to take care of the unreserved ladies’ coach is not enough. For instance, women who stand (or sit) patiently on the platform dash towards Udyan Express when it reaches the platform and cannot be restrained by one woman. Male passengers, meanwhile, are more restrained because of the five RPF men deputed. Louis Amutham said the RPF would look into the matter but doesn’t want male personnel intervening when it comes to women passengers. “That’s why they would not have joined in to help,” he said.

I am not sure if this train has this facility but pretty sure it runs almost empty from SBC to MYS. So just a gen SF tkt would do. Have seen it once with less than 10% occupancy on one of those rare days when train was delayed by only 5 mins at SBC.

Don't worry about current booking just buy a UR SF Gen ticket pay difference fare to TTE onboard..You could well find lots of berths free to travel.

No much RAC allocation too, Cancellation is too low for this train...
On my personal experience, If WL is more than 20( considering your travel date), it won't enter RAC also.
Note: If you are ready for Tatkal, SL tickets will be available till 11AM on general basis...
Thanks
