Sep 28 2016 (23:15)   Waitlisted? You can hope to board shadow outbound trains
 

Rail Fanning~   137 news posts
Entry# 2005321   News Entry# 281583         Tags   Past Edits
: Railway authorities have plans to introduce shadow trains in high­demand
sectors such as Bengaluru­Chennai, Bengaluru­Ernakulam, Bengaluru­Howrah and
Bengaluru­Belgaum.
The idea, however, is still in discussion stage and will take wings only after the Railways is
able
...

to overcome the bottlenecks.
Shadow trains are those that follow the main trains after a gap of 15 to 30 minutes. For
example, Kanyakumari Express or Shatabdi Express are always full, so railways can
introduce trains that closely follow these trains. By doing this, the Railways ­besides dealing
with rising demand ­can also earn some revenue.
"We will identify the sectors that are regularly full. But we can implement this idea only after
the availability of the path and the coaches improve," said a railway official. "We will need
double lines, less congestion and better infrastructure," he added.
The Railways does not want to lose passengers, especially those booked on the AC coaches. Though small in number, they make up a
substantial portion of passenger revenues, and the Railways has been exploring ways to retain this revenue.
It is precisely for this reason that the Railways introduced the alternative train accommodation scheme under the name Vikalp. It provides
for alternative accommodation for passengers on tickets booked through the IRCTC site. If a traveller has booked a ticket on the Rajdhani
and is waitlisted, the Railways will try to accommodate the passenger on another train running to the same destination on the same day .
First introduced on Delhi­Lucknow and Delhi­Jammu, the facility is now available on Bengaluru­Delhi route too. Vikalp is currently run as a
pilot project, and authorities said they will soon be able to extend it to other high demand sectors from Bengaluru. Vikalp, the official
explained, was introduced to provide confirmed accommodation to waitlisted passengers by using up every available seat as it is illegal for
them to board reserved coaches. Under the scheme, the authorities are augmenting the sector capacity either by attaching additional
coaches to clear waitlisted passengers or by running extra trains.
"The facility is available only on e­ticketing option. This is not yet open on all the sectors, which we will do as we go along. This requires a
lot of tweaking of the software in the reservation system," the official said.
