    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

    There have been some reports that the IRI Atlas is not visible. This seems to be some problem at the Google Maps end. To resolve this, please log out and log back in, and everything should start working. Thanks.

Had tatkal fare had been revised? Then how much? Last wee k i booked the ticket from ED to SBC the fare was 265+20+90=375, normally it will be 170+20=190. Why it was such increased suddenly without piror notice.
Have you ever faced like this.

This Ticket was cancelled by me by filing TDR. I filed it exactly at 2:30 PM on 27-05-2014. The refund got approved but only 50%. Although the seat confirmed at a previous station (RL Quota) but the departure time from the station I booked was 9:30 PM
.
I filed it 7 hours before departure. Shouldn't I get refund with only 25% deduction?

12957 ADI-NDLS New 2A Fare (estimated) = 2175 20.08.2014
AMD-DEL Go Air Flight 2500/- 20.08.2014
....So At Peak Season Flights are equivalent to 2A of Rajdhanis because Train gets Booked on first few days of opening.

An attempt to book ticket through IRCTC failed after payment stage. Pay status shown in the 'Resumption of failed ticket' link is 'Settlement Requested' and Reservation Status is 'N/A'.
Can anyone please clarify what it means? Will the amount get refunded to the credit card A/c automatically or will I have to approach IRCTC for refund?

I travelled this week first time in a premium train /blog/post/1064859 from ADI to DEE. The Rake was LHB same as 12957/SJ Rajdhani but looked like little old one. The is really meant for last minute travellers. Catering was at its worst. The Caterers were 'Meals on Wheels'.
.
They served me biscuits instead of sweet in evening snacks as Sweets were finished. Very Third Class Tomato?? Soup was served ....was really unbearable. In the Dinner Tray, Curd was missing. I thought the stock of the same may also get consumed as I was allotted Berth 49 and was one of the few who were served at the end. But this time he genuinely forgot to serve me. The Food Quality was also worse. He later provided two packets of curd

to compensate. No Ice Cream was served (atleast to me).
Later He expected a tip from me $^$%^$^%##
Overall there was nothing premium about this train.

Now for the return Journey a nice series of events were waiting for me and that would be continued.....................

....here is the second part vis - a - vis return journey.
.
.
With no surity of time of return of my trip, I booked Tatkal Ticket with WL#4 & 5 for 12958 DOJ 22-04-2014 on 21-04-2014 evening around 4:30 as soon as I got the confirmation. With mixed predictions on IRI, I kept my fingers crossed and at Chart Preparation found One ticket Pax Confirmed and other Waitlist. With Surity of atleast boarding the train, We both reached NDLS at 6:45.
...
Some Touts approached us generally to ask for reservation. Curiously, I asked them whether they can provide us a confirmed
...
Read more...
ticket in this train and they assured us with the same (obviously on payment of huge premium).
...
On arrival of train, we occupied the single seat (A3 52) available to us which was incidentally given to us as the original pax got upgraded to 1A. First of all the berth was itself annoying (SU Berth near the gate) and with no surity of second berth, a couple arrived asking us to shift to A5, 39 as they were allotted berths in separate coaches (A3, 51 and A5, 39). Further, lady of A5 40 shifted to A5 39 so we have to occupy A5 40. We were happy with it but waited for TTE to confirm.
..
TTE didn't had chart of WL Passengers and after making a round he actually Allotted the couple A3 24 in the same coach. I asked the TTE whether A3 24 pax hasn't arrived, He Nodded. We thought with this we would get our allotment right now as there were no other WL or RAC pax travelling in 2A.

..
But TTE actually refused to allot any combination out of A3 52, A3 51, A3 24 , A5 40. At around 10:30 PM I approached him in Pantry Car and he gave us A3 24 and A5 24. We were just satisfied with two SU berths (atleast we got two now). But after reaching A5 crossing through A4 I found many Berths were still empty and the train was not looking with 'Rush'.
...
Read more...
Wondering why so many pax havn't turned up as I was sure with the charts that nobody is coming at subsequent stations.
..
Did touts have booked those? (High chance of that)
..
The train arrived SBI 15 min late but was wondering whether new rules of quota allotment have given more leverage to touts to play with GN tickets.
..
Can anybody explain me in detail the mechanism adopted by these people to block berths to sell in 'Black'??

Little change in menu of 12958....................
1.Mix veg Soup was served instead of tomato soup.
2.No salad in Dinner Menu (may be a one time event)
3. Amul Kool (Flavored Milk) instead of old Jumpin in breakfast (that one is old change but pointing out just for infrequent travelers)
