Agree Agree Agree Disagree:Poor assessment of the scenario Agree:I agree fully Agree
Pawan express is the best example of how Indian railways has failed in fulfilling the passenger needs. I travelled briefly last week from Manmad jn to Thane and entered SL class to see the horrible picture. In the Sleeper Coach in every berth, two people are sleeping. I am not joking. I tried to fight initially that I booked the SL ticket with the double occupant. I realised that the train runs like this from Bihar to Mumbai in all the Sleeper class coaches with two people sleeping and some times, one more person sitting. This is the state of affairs why Indian Railways failed to cater to the needs of common traveller. Indian Railways on an average denies ticket to at least 200,000 passengers on daily basis and it goes upto 500,000 people their choice to travel despite having the rolling stock, and the railway lines. It is apathy...
of Indian Railways not accountable after they stopped the Railway Budget. How do we measure Railway performance. Financially operating ratio, how much they spend to earn 100 rupees, around 98 now. How much Indian government spend on Railways year on year, now 2.5 lakhs crores. How many passengers the Indian Railways denies travel - around 200 crore people and out of which 150 crore people travel like cattle including Mumbai local suburban trains, without seats for last 50 years. How long will Railways fail us and how long politicians give bullshit reasons to Indian population?

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
