YES. Agreed. Rs.10/- is meager. DO NOT PAY just to show off. IF you wish to TIP anyone, anywhere, Trains, bus, Restaurants, Hotels, TIP them handsomely. - Its simple - Do it with generosity or DO NOT do it at all. NO Questions asked. Cheers.

Hey, hey, hey, I am not promoting this TIPS culture, I have time and again said - DO NOT TIP at all. But if you choose to do so, then DO SO handsomely. And then, a BIG SHAME on this - "You cant believe how rudely these hooligans are behaving with a solo lady and when we all united and started revolting they just left the scene". - This is exactly where YOU kind of guys are doing nothing. Absolutely NOTHING on trains. Someone, talking rudely with a LADY co-passenger, and you LEFT this so called hooligan scot-free? SHAME ON YOU and your co passengers. YOU must have caught these guys who misbehaved with a lady and handed over them to the RPF. You are making a mess of TIPS on trains, when you could not complain about someone (or more) misbehaving with a LADY passenger. This is the problem in...
more...
INDIA. People like you DO NOT act where and when necessary. But people like you keep ranting the same lines time and again. Shame on you that you let those so called hooligans were let off because you were more worried about the TIPs than that of the safety of a LADY co-passenger.

I do pity on you on certain things..first of all you don't konow how to join in a debate in an open forum..maybe that's the reason why you chose to call me "hey,hey,hey".I believe in giving respect to each and every person and hereby I said that some people tip others so that they can take undue rights from them or rather can ask them to bear their tantrums (I even saw people giving their stale tiffin box to wash and then tip them for 50/-) .. Secondly you are bounded by some social boundaries and I had my belief that I can think above these social statas like Gender,Class etc that's why I protested against the entire passengers of the compartment rather than solving the plight of a single lady..(though the lady was also strong enough to shield her own defense)..FYI we had lodged a complain in Hwh Grp...
more...
on tip of RPF and they asked us to give witness when they will take action in nabbing those...
Thirdly and most importantly try to think beyond certain boxes like Buying people by tipping handsomely..You live in Democratic country where an elected government collect taxes on behalf of you to pay that persons salary...Complaining is not taking his job away but to give or ratger teach him a lesson that Don't force someone for your benefit..Grow up and do some rational thinking because oneday when you give him a 500 note and he will say "sir diwali is near..itne se kya hota"

This ain't the US where tips are a mandatory part. Tipping is 'actively discouraged' by IR, then why do it. Infact, I applaud the OP for complaining to the DRM since they're already paid for doing their jobs[they are paid sufficient in the first place unlike the US whose custom you are trying to copy]. Tipping is an extremely im-perfect system and it had be good if it doesn't increase.

Re# 2002143-15            Tags   Past Edits
The problem is that many vendors, waiters, janitors & other train staff 'demand' tips as per their rates as if it's some kind of entitlements that they have right to. The fact is that tips are a Colonial Raj Era Hangover that isn't going from the psyche of people doing physical work in eatery joints, restaurants and Indian Trains (esp Prestigious trains). Just as Kolkata restaurants in Park Street and other Central locations need to shed their Raj Era arrogance, similarly many IR train staff people also need to shed off these Raj era habits.

Tips or "Baksish" in Hindi is something that is supposed to be given voluntarily to staffers so the giving person should decide the rates rather than the recipient 'demanding' the amount. Once a beggar gave me back a Rs. 2 Coin in my hand since he refused it. It's not his fault since many foreigners in New Market and other Central Kolkata locations have spoiled beggars by giving them alms of above Rs. 100/- ... :(

A steady stream of food stuff from the local vendors will ensure that you will not go hungry. In the morning time, in between Yerraguntla and Guntakal, we could get Coffee, Masala Tea, Water, Sweet Lassi, Buttermilk, Chitrannna(Tamarind rice), Bhelpuri, Mosambi, Samosa, Sweet Bread, Boiled Groundnuts, Bananas et al. Gooty station has a number of vendors selling items for lunch. Overall a train with good catering from local vendors

When at YPR, with a 60 mins to 120 mins or more of lay-over/transit time, do not think twice before heading to this restaurant/food court - SHIV BHOJ - PURE VEG - 1.2 kms away from YPR station by walk and 1.5 kms by Metro Rail - YPR to YPR Industry Metro Rly Stn. Phone No. of SHIV BHOJ: 080 67303000. Towards Mumbai Side - or just ask for Taj Vivanta, Tumkur Road Side when outside the station. They serve the following cuisines - North Indian, South Indian, Chinese, Fast Food. A lot of food is available to choose from. THEY MAY ALSO DELIVER AT YPR STN - JUST ASK FOR IT. (Perhaps they could deliver outside the station, if not on your seat). Food items like Vada Pav, Pav Bhaji, Chole Bature, Pohe / Poha, Jelebi Rabdi, Aloo Chilli, North Indian (Patiala) Thali is available. (Its good and I have...

tried it myself). Good option to spend sometime there, as a transit-over pass time. See pics and this link click here for more details.

Abu Road is famous for its Rabri (a thick milk based sweet with dry fruits). Rabri is available all over the station if you happen to pass through. If you plan to board or de-board, there are Rabri vendors outside the station as well. Do give it a try, its fresh, chilled and tastes delicious.

Re# 1996151-3            Tags   Past Edits
I seriously have a doubt about this route between CRLM - BYPL - CSDR - YNK. Does the train from BYPL necessarily go to KJM. If yes, doesn't it require a LR at KJM? Or can trains from BYPL go directly to CSDR without going to KJM? And if a LR is a must at BYPL and KJM, then the stoppage time must be increased at KJM.

One of the worst food, whether you call for ordered food or take what is available on platform. Only Sanchi stalls provide some respite.

I used to travel through this station almost 20 years ago and one used to get excellent piping HOT IDLIs & Wadas at this Station. Even the loco-pilots used to grab this from usually Local Vendors. Really worth trying. Pls update present day availability of Hot and tasty idly wadas at this station.
