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.

....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

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'??

If the info is correct then soon IR is starting official food supply system in many trains via authorized vendors.
In this system there will be a kind of accountability towards quality and feedback.

But even for one rupee will they rounded off to next higher multiples of 5? It's ridiculous.
Normally rounding off will be to nearer value. Ie. 41rs will be rounded of to 40 rs and 43bwill be rounded off to 45.
IR is always different! Just imagine how much money they can earn from this/day!!!!
But why they do this rounding off for online transactions?
