The lodging facility at Pune in the IRCTC Retiring Room is Excellent except for the following issues:-
1. There are no Double Room/Single room booking. Dormitory rooms are only available with common wash rooms and common bathrooms. Family rooms are available but are very costly. It would be great if Double room and single rooms are available.
2. Family Room no. 5 is excellent with an opaque Wooden Door and good wash rooms. However Family room nos. 3 and 4 are not upto the mark for the amount charged which is very costly.
Dormitory rooms for 12 hours are Rs 114 plus service charges and service tax per bed and Family rooms for 12 hours are Rs 513 plus Service tax plus service charges and service tax on service charges. This is for Non A/c rooms for 12 hours which is very high and the amount becomes Rs 610 after taxes for 12 hours only. There is service tax levied on the base amount for Non-AC Rooms which should be levied only for AC rooms. Therefore, the amount should be Rs 300 to Rs 400 for 24 hours and proportionately for 12 hours plus service charges and service tax. This will bring down the cost of the rooms and many commuters will opt for this facility.
3. The Jan Aahar stall does not have Meals - Thali, etc and Breakfast items and commuters have to fend for themselves.
