Side-upper berths were very cramped when SMB's were present! As it is, Side berths are a problem for tall people. With SMB it will become very uncomfortable! Better to stick to present RAC pattern of using SLB for RAC!

Agree with you ....
But in some of the recent blogs, it is observed that
1. some members oppose 2 RAC on SLB bcoz "Pay full & get half seat".
2. some members strongly oppose SMB bcoz it is not comfortable.
I have posted this poll.....

Smb r useless
In side berths 2 people r there one on top & other lower now if smb is apso there 3 people would b there means 10-12 extra people in the coaches
Also during day time where will the two sit as there exist a fasaad smb not even allowing to sit with head straight ( just like middle berth open & u sit in lb)

Its correct that in RAC - Pay Full for half seat, but its better than SMB because of Its very uncomfortable for the passenger with SM birth

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
