For Mr.venkat katragadda to commute during peak hours () from Borivli to BCT as mentioned by him, is he not aware that the Rajdhani leaves BCT at 16:30 hrs ? So, for travel from Borivli say at 15:00 hrs to catch the train at 16:30, where is the question of peak time ? Or, is any time peak for him ?

holiday special trains are not shown on the indianrail.gov.in site. this is to be introduced for the convenience of information. a separate button/link/tab may be added to the site so that it lists availability of trains and seats during holidays. information as to when such trains will be operational etc. may also be mentioned.

You can see the information in special trains section inside trains menu of indianrail.gov.in. You can get the schedule of a perticular special train also in the same section.

Just type first two letters are wait for pull down options n then choose. This is happening recently and I hope this problem will be reloved soon.
For ex: if you want to change from general to Tatkal, type :t so that options will appear on the screen n then select the tatkal option. Hope this helps.

You can get a confirmed ticket in current reservation also under Forign Tourist Quota based on availability even for the same day just before chart preparation. There is a special counter for this category in Mumbai CSTM reservation complex. You need to show your passport as proof. Most of this type of quota is not availed especially for this train (2 berths in 2AC sleeper and 4 Berths in normal Sleeper.
Alternatively you can ask your travel agent to book through either Yatra/cleartrip where they can process the requests on phone also.
credit card payments, Cards issues in India only accepted at IRCTC and other websites.

Can I buy a ticket at the station window just before the departure? I understand that I won't get a reservation. Is it possible to buy a seat from TTE by paying additional fare? If yes, how much? Thank you for reading this post.

jan shatabdi trains has 100% reserved compartments. No general bogies and you need to travel with a confirmed ticket (reserved seat or confirmation from TTE).
Hope this clarifies.

I booked in Amritsar-Kochuveli Express for a trip from Goa to Quilon 4 months ago online. 3 passengers got confirmed birth in 2A. Other 2 are WL1 and 3. Can anyone comment on the chances of getting confirmation for these 2 tickets? The WL didn't change ever since I booked it.
THanks, in advance for your help

Need a passenger/Express for seasoners of Daund and surrounding areas in the morning and evening .
The passengers of Hyderabad- Mumbai exp(7031/7032) are being troubled by the seasoners, business man, employees of Daund and surround areas daily from 6.00 am onwards every day as this would be the convienient time to ply to Pune for them. They simply board the sleeper class and sits where ever they find place, adjust their bags and carriers, files, beside the passengers who are sleeping. Sits beside the lower berth and side lower berth passengers. Starts playing the mp3/ fm songs from their mobiles(mostly china make) to make the sleeping passengers awaka and slowly encroaches. adjuasts in their seats. This is a daily nuisance
with them and fighting/ quarrels are quite a common. Luggage theft is also taken place most of the times. No police/ RPF/ will be there to take care of the situation.
when this menace will come to a halt ? central railway doesn't care for this despite of many complaints lodged so far .

Same case for Konark from Mumbai to Bhubaneswar. between Pune-Daund, no one dares to object seasoners.
For 7032, these seasoners makes the jurney miserable. If you want to complain on this to TTE/RPF, you can not get any between these two stations. Though there is a passesnger train available for them, they prefer to occupy & trouble this train.

Vizag divn plays very key between Ecor & SCR just because Vizag Port and not because of passenger traffic.
ECoR wants Vizag Divn just because of this.
