Here is a copy of the post from "Local Circles"
Here is an update from Railways:
In order to improve the efficiency of the website for booking of e-tickets, a new State-of-the-Art Data Centre has been set up by Indian Railway Catering & Tourism Corporation. Further, the e-ticketing system has been upgraded with the launch of the NextGeneration E-ticketing System (NGeT). This new e-ticketing system has an enhanced capacity of booking 7200 tickets in a minute as against the capacity of 2000 tickets per minute of the old system. In the new system 1,20,000 concurrent users can login at a time and simultaneously book e-tickets against the earlier capacity of 40,000 concurrent users at a time.
Also, For providing First Aid
...

to needy railway passengers, First Aid Boxes have been provided on all passengers carrying trains and Augmented First Aid Boxes have been provided in nominated long distance trains. Front line staff deployed on trains is trained in rendering First Aid. Services of doctors travelling as passengers are also utilized to attend to passengers who are in need of urgent medical assistance. Trains can also make unscheduled halts, if necessary, at the stations en-route in emergencies. Station Masters have details of doctors, clinics and hospitals, both Government and private, in the vicinity of the station so that their services could also be availed in emergencies.
Thanks for your participation. Together, we will make Railways Better!

I have found that in 12677 from CBE to ERS AC Chair car tickets are in PQWL. Whatever be the PQWL number it gets confirmed. Sometimes after getting into the train I find more than 50% seats are vacant though my ticket was PQWL. I feel this may be due to a large number of passengers travel from SBC to CBE and hence the seats from CBE are vacant. If this is so while charting, does all the seats getting vacant at CBE are allotted to PQWL passengers from CBE. Kindly clarify.

Konkan Railway confident of securing approval for its expansion projects
Notwithstanding the change at the top in the Railway Ministry, the Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd. (KRCL) is hopeful of the new Railway Minister conceding to its long-pending demand — including Mangaluru

region under its jurisdiction.It is also confident that the Minister would give the green signal for its expansion projects — doubling and electrifying the 742-km route network.The expectations of KRCL as well as the people in coastal Karnataka were high when D.V. Sadananda Gowda was appointed the Railway Minister in the NDA government since he hailed from the region and was at the forefront of the agitation to get justice for Mangaluru region.His abrupt shifting from the Ministry, however, is not considered as a setback to the demand as the new Minister — Suresh Prabhu — too hails from the Konkan region and is aware of the struggle, sources in the KRCL told The Hindu. KRCL’s Chairman and Managing Director B.P. Tayal has already met Mr. Prabhu, but it was a courtesy meeting on the latter assuming the office, sources said.However, its demands are still alive on the Railway Board’s table and KRCL would make every effort to take them to the logical end.
The corporation claims that Mangaluru region should have been under KRCL as envisaged in the detailed project report prepared for its formation in 1989.
It says the special purpose vehicle (KRCL) formed for constructing the railway line between Roha in Maharashtra and Thokur in Karnataka and operating trains was found feasible only after taking into account the railway network in Mangaluru region.
However, the region, comprising Mangalore Central passenger coaching terminal, Old Port Goods Shed, Mangalore Junction (Kankanady) and Panambur (New Mangalore Port), was kept out of KRCL when it was formed in 1995.
If Mangaluru region is brought under KRCL, its revenues would increase due to the Port.
The increased revenue thus generated could be ploughed back to improve the infrastructure — doubling and electrifying the line — which is almost saturated, KRCL says.

Doubling and electrification of KR must be the first priority rather than MAQ to be included in KR. With such difficult terrain even if the doubling is sanctioned it will take a decade to complete

Recently asked me question related to booking of unreserved ticket (for minors/children). I realised I can't find a way to book ticket for a child (together with, let's say, her parents) on irctc site where parent don't want to take reservation for the child. For instance, if child is just 6 yr old and parent decide, she can share berth with her mother, they still have to buy reservation for child if trying to book online. Is my observation true? Or are we supposed to buy such tickets from station itself??

Strictly if you buy an unreserved ticket for a child from counter, the child cannot travel with you in the reserved compartment of any class. There is no question of your adjusting
