This train is mostly used by the immigrant labours of Jharkhand & W.B to various parts of Karnatata.RM also knows that the budget speech will not at all affect them.Infact most of them dont even know that today Rail Budget is presented.So next time,when they'll be coming to YPR/HWH Station or any other PRS for booking tickets,they'll greeted with the surprise RM has left for them..!!!

also heard something that the fares will be rounded off low or high to the next rs.5 ???? that would mean a fare of 183 will be taken to 185 while 182 will be 180. will this help significantly ???

Why is he mentioning that 750 km Journey in SL class will cost only Rs 40/- more.He should mention that the Longest Journey(15906) will cost Rs 215/- more+Occassional Tatkal Charges+Dalal(Unscrupulous Element)Charges.Ridiculuos increase in fare structure!!!

But Sir,they'll now be collecting Tatkal Surcharge for Normal Tickets also.Bangalore City/Yesvantpur to Guwahati Fare for Sleeper Class increased by Rs 150/- !!!!!
Yesvantpur to Howrah Fare increased by 98.15 Rs.Too Much burden for Normal Middle Class people,after all we only travelin Sleeper Class.You're retired employee getting very good pension from SBI,but we're not getting Jobs.Very difficult for us.:(

Ya presently SBC to GHY 2992 km.Fare Rs 591/-(Booking from PRS)(Rs 601+Payment Gateway Charges in case Booked from IRCTC).So if 5 paise/km increased fare,then increased fare=(0.05*2992)=Rs 149.60.So total Fare Rs 751.60/-This is too much.Congress is definitely going to loose next Elections.

Just few hours before Rail budget here is quick assessment on last Rail Budgets announcements and implementations:
*Trains announced in last budget are almost on track
* No so called world class stations on ground
* Izzat scheme status unknown the eligibility criteria it self is a major deterrent.
*
...
more...
GN Ticket vending kiosks are rare
* Green toilets are yet to be fitted on mass trains.
* Health centers on many railway stations are no where on ground
* PPP scheme failed to attract investors
* No major infrastructure project completed this year
* Railway finances are in deep trouble need big capital infusion
* The ad-hock measures taken by ministry are not enough to bridge huge gap between income and loss
* Much hyped DD train started on loss making route
* Much needed Fright corridor yet to take full shape but talk of High speed train are already circulated to divert real issue
* No new rail factories are still in pending list so severe shortage of Loco,Passenger Coaches,Wagons are making rail operation difficult
* No new staff induction for many years making working staff stressful
* Non of safety devises installed to check accidents delays
* Hand Held Terminal yet to be seen on TTE hand
*Over all service quality detorieted significantly.
*No new route identified to ease already over pressured routes
* No major achievement on New line/gauge conversion.
** Populist measures made thing worst even the home state is not satisfied due to better approach on long term solution for many requirements

Sir referring to this document & you,being an ex-SBI Employee & me presently a Job Seeker,just want to ask you one question.Though we're exhausted seeing the caste based discrimination in our country,yet we cant do anything.Still,if we go with the rules also,it is mentioned that at least 50.5% reservation(horizontal reservation included) should be given to GEN category candidates.As I'm aspiring from W.B.& as per the vacancy released by S.B.I.,there are total 702 vacancies for Clerical Post.But why the vacancies for GEN category candidates are only 229?Shouldnt it be around 354?& Also please suggest how to prepare for this upcoming exam(which is scheduled on last week of May/First Week of June),so that out of this 229 vacancy also,if we can hope for something.& Why there is so much competition for Clerical Posts also?Does it require any special skills to be a Bank Clerk?Lot of SC/ST's are also selected & they're also doing...
