Mar 22 2017 (00:03)   Travel in Rajdhani, Shatbadi at mail/express fare from April 1

Come April and a passenger can avail the opportunity of travelling in Rajdhani or Shatabdi trains even if he or she has booked tickets in other mail/express trains for the same destinations. Railways is launching a new scheme from April 1 under which waitlisted passengers can get confirmed accommodation in the next alternative train if they opt for the option while booking their tickets. As per the scheme, there would be no extra charges taken from the passenger or any refund provided for the difference of fare. Known as ‘Vikalp’, the alternative train accommodation scheme aims to utilise vacant berths in many premier trains including Rajdhani, Shatabdi, Duronto and other special service such as Suvidha trains in all major routes.
Railways has
to forego about Rs 7,500 crore in a year in refund to customers for cancellation of tickets for various reasons. Describing the scheme as a “passenger friendly” move to provide confirmed accommodation to waitlisted passengers in alternative trains, a senior Railway Ministry official said, “We aim to achieve the twin objectives of providing confirmed accommodation to waitlisted passengers and ensure optimal utilisation of available accommodation by this scheme.”
After introduction of flexi-fare system in premier trains, some berths are going vacant while at the same time many passengers could not be accommodated in other Mail/Express trains due to huge demand. “In any case these berths are running vacant. So whatever we can save in refund is going to be a neat save for us. No additional cost is involved to railways so anything we save will be earnings for railways,” the official added. Currently, railways is running the scheme in six routes including Delhi-Lucknow, Delhi-Jammu and Delhi-Mumbai sectors since November 1, on a pilot basis.

The system is available for online ticketing now but it will be extended to over the counter sale also as the required software is being readied for the purpose. As per the scheme, waitlisted passengers of a train would be given option of getting confirmed accommodation in the next train running on the route. While there is a huge demand for train berths in certain sector round the year, some routes witness increased rush during festive season.
The passenger, if opts for the ‘Vikalp’ scheme while booking tickets, will get SMS alert on his/her mobile phone about getting confirmed accommodation in the alternative train. The name of the passenger who has been provided accommodation in the alternative train will not figure in the waitlisted charts of their original train, the official said, adding that a separate list of passengers transferred in alternative train will be pasted along with the confirmed and waitlist charts.

I am planning to visit digha on 25 th of March (This friday) but i can see there are no tickets available. SO i was thinking to take a opt for Tatkal in
15722/Paharia Express (PT) for Sleeper class Or 12857 TAMRALIPTA EXP for second sitting. paharia is not a superfast . Does Paharia train delays a lot on coming to howrah from NJP .If so then there is a risk.. Howveer CC(Chair Car ) in 12857 is not a good option as i have childrens and they may feel siitng unconfortable. Please suggest simmeting or some alternative?.

There are lot of buses running between these 2 places. I think even GNWL 89 should confirm as even from NJP to HWH, it has the same status and most of the pax will be travelling from NJP to HWH only. Meanwhile you will board at HWH, so you will be getting those seats only whose pax deboarded at HWH. Or else for safe side, u can try for tatkal!

I am writing this post for serious concern that why and how maximum coaches of these trains are not from their zone! Why other zones are giving their coaches to these 2 zones? In flight, it is said, "Help yourself first, before helping others". Why not these zones convert their trains to LHB first and then help other zone. And if the point of "allocation" comes, then why zone wise allocation of coaches? Then we can have "IR" written on coaches like how they wrote "IR" on boundary poles near railway tracks, erasing the previously zonal wise "CR/NR/etc".
After looking at the videos, I observed that:
:- Non AC coaches were of CR and NFR.
22857/58/93/94 :- Non AC coaches were of ECR, NFR and CR.
12869/70/22853/54 :- AC coaches (PC too) were of SER but Non AC coaches comprised of NR, CR and ECR coaches.
12357/58/19/20 :- 3-4 coaches were fo NER.
12329/30/79/80 :- Almost all coaches were fine except one or two, where I saw CR coaches.
Main question is, will they really interchange the coaches after ER/SER getting its Non AC coaches? Do ER/SER pay any revenue to CR/NR/ECR/NFR/NER for using coaches of their zones?

I just feel like due to "Railfan group" (I am not a member of any group), this type of biased activities are taking place. Just a thought if any #admin can give to this issue. Infact I had many previous posts like that went unanswered. Groupism at its peak! It is really discouraging. :( :(

Its not about the responsibility, but its about the confidence with which you can claim that the RSA is removed without any confirmed news. It might also happen that train board is changed everytime at NDLS? (same way as of 12315/16 and 12317/18)

something wrong with this X/O. It is even overtaking the trains that are coming from opposite direction.
भोजपुर । इस्लामपुर से नई दिल्ली जाने वाली 12391 अप श्रमजीवी सुपरफास्ट एक्सप्रेस शुक्रवार को आरा रेलवे स्टेशन पर लगभग 50 मिनट तक रुकी रही। मिली जानकारी के अनुसार 12142 अप पाटलीपुत्र लोकमान्य तिलक सुपरफास्ट के गुजरने के बाद एक घंटे विलंब से श्रमजीवी सुपरफास्ट प्लेटफॉर्म संख्या तीन पर रुकी। मात्र दो मिनट के ठहराव होने के बावजूद 50 मिनट तक खड़ी रही। अप मेन लाइन से अप लाइन से पटना मथुरा-कोटा एक्सप्रेस और पटना-सिकंदराबाद एक्सप्रेस को पास कराने के लिए रुकी रही। काफी देर से पहुंचने के बावजूद और देर तक आरा रेलवे स्टेशन पर रुकने से यात्रियों को काफी परेशानी उठानी पड़ी।
