Hi all, I don't have much knowledge about reservation in train. However I have a question about online booing in train no- 12839 , howrah chennai mail in sleeper class.
As I know this train has 12 sleeper class bogey & each bogey has 72 berths, but when I open irctc site for the advance booking of this train I saw that there is only 124 seat available in sleeper class. How is this possible ? I am very surprised. When I asked the same to irctc customer support they replied that they are inbound with Indian railways terms & conditions.
anybody can answer my question ? I am waiting...

Sir the No. you've figured out is too less....I think there is some serious Error..Because all the South Bound trains from HWH(24 coach) has atleast 400 berths available in GEN quota & 238 in Tatkal Quota...I think you're checkig during the Durga Puja vacations...so most of the berths are sold out.

    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. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@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. Also,...
