The Lodging facilities are not available at Amritsar Station. Even though Amritsar is mentioned in the List of Stations, the rooms are not available on entering the PNR for all the categories of Double/Single Room , Family Room, Dormitory Room. The message appears "No rooms available for slot/booking". Rooms should be provided at this station as this is a major tourist destination.

I could not book the room through Online process and hence went for Hotel accommodation. My stay was for one day and I could not check the same at the station. In case some one else is travelling kindly confirm whether there are retiring rooms at Amritsar station.

There are retiring rooms at ASR and they are decent for the price they offer. I have stayed twice in these rooms. They arent shown online coz they are under renovation.

MSEDCL does not have the required capacity to supply 24 X 7 power to Navi Mumbai residents from Vashi to Panvel. This has been happening for the last 30 years and it is high time the Maharashtra Government understands the need for changing the Power Distributor in Navi Mumbai from MSEDCL to another player like Reliance or TATA Power. TATA Power will supply cheaper power and also insulate Navi Mumbai by supplying 24 X 7 power for Navi Mumbai from Vashi to Panvel.
MSEDCL has been resorting to load shedding and irregular power cuts in Khanda Colony Sector 9. The residents have been suffering and the situation does not seem to improve. There was a power cut on 9th May 2017

from 7.30 a.m.to 10.00 a.m and again on 12th May 2017 from 7.00 p.m. to 8.45 p.m. and 10.00 p.m. to 11.30 p.m. On 13th May 2017, there was a power cut from 9.00 a.m. to 10.00 a.m. and again from 11.00 a.m. to 12.00 p.m. and again from 8.35 p.m. to 9.45 p.m. These irregular power cuts disturbs the residents work schedule and they suffer financial loss.
MSEDCL has been torturing the residents over the last 30 years despite paying all their bills regularly and that too well before the due date. Load shedding is not the solution and electricity generation is the need of the hour.
As a result of such power cuts, the following are the problems faced by the residents:-
1. Children and senior citizens cannot cope up with the heat and suffocation and suffer from various ailments.
2. Costly vegetables, fruits, milk, batter and other perishables etc stored in the refrigerator get spoiled leading to tremendous losses.
3. The mobile phones conk off and the Internet connection gets disrupted and communication is cut off leading to severe inconvenience.
4. Digitization goes for a toss as payments cannot be made online or from the mobile.
5. The age old practice of installing generators/inverters does not solve the issue as this leads to pollution on account of release of more gases and depletes the ozone layer and deprives the city and country of earning carbon credits.
We appeal to the authorities to kindly take up the matter with MSEDCL immediately and the Maharashtra Government and get this resolved permanently. These power cuts destroy an upcoming Smart City- Navi Mumbai.

Every Chief Minister in Maharashtra has been promising that there will be no power cuts in Maharashtra from the time their party has come to power. If we recollect, the Enron power project was scrapped and there has been no indigenous entity to generate and supply 24 X 7 Power in Maharashtra.
Therefore, the moot point is that if Navi Mumbai (Vashi to Panvel) has to become a Smart City, it cannot afford to have any power cuts and it should have 24 X 7 power supply round the clock. Likewise, the below instances summarize the view that MSEDCL does not have the required capacity to supply 24 X 7 power to Navi Mumbai residents from Vashi to Panvel. This has

The Lodging facilities are not available at Kolhapur Station. Rooms should be provided at this station as this is a major tourist destination. It will also help commuters to avail cheaper facilities rather than expensive hotel rooms.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. .

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.
