Long distance Mail / Express trains are provided with large team of Railway personnel and outsourced staff of Catering, Cleanliness on-board for offering various services to the passengers and to provide maintenance on run. In order to bring better coordination amongst different service personnel working and to introduce the concept of a single person / leader responsible for coordinating the entire team and facilitating all services during the complete journey of the train to give passenger satisfaction and comfort, Railway Board has introduced the concept of “Train Captain”.
In trains like Rajdhani / Shatabdi / Duronto and other trains where a Train Superintendent (TS) is on end-to-end basis, Train Superintendent shall be nominated as “Train Captain” and made responsible for all the facilities on trains. Train Superintendent is provided with a badge of Train Captain to be worn on the uniform. All the onboard railway personnel and supervisors of all outsourced agencies shall report to the Train Captain for effective control and supervision to improve the onboard services offered by Railways.
Name and contact number of the Train Captain is made available to the passengers through reservation chart before departure of the train. Other TTEs working in the train as well as the supervisors of OBH staff, Pantry Manager, Bedroll contractor, AC Coach Attendants etc will SMS their mobile numbers to the Train Captain. During the journey, Train Captain stays in touch with the other service personnel and ensure that they discharge their duty promptly and efficiently. In case of any complaints from passengers, he gets them redressed by contacting the service personnel on board or at the major stations enroute.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
