Agree Great:Very Good Decision. Great Great:Good Descision Great:good decision finally Disagree:Good Move Disagree:Good move by railways. Great:बहुत अच्छा हुआ
As expected.

Booking has reopened for Goa Express after 15th June, 2024.

Number of Sleeper Coaches have been increased from 2 to 6 .

3rd AC Economy Coaches have been reduced from 4 to 2.

3rd AC Coaches have been reduced from 4 to 1

2nd AC coaches have been reduced from 2 to 1

Total AC Coaches Earlier: 11

Total AC Coaches now: 5

BAD day for those who are dreaming for India as developed nation till 2047.

A person who is ready to pay 3115 and in PT, this amount reach upto even 10000 will now have to look for other options just because INDIAN RAILWAYS want a person who wants to pay just 825 can travel.

Economy works on demand price relationship but in Indian Railways they are satisfying demand of that class which is paying just 825 and not even able to support there own cost of travel.

A person who could have contributed 10000 Rupees to Government using that government can feed 10 passengers of those category who just want to pay 825, Now will pay the same or more amount to some private operator which will result more financial losses to government and more earning for businessmen.

I will say that now Third Class coaches should also be reintroduced to more poor population can travel.

Bhai Ameer log train mein travel nahi karte. Aur agar ameeron se itni hi nafrat hai toh unke tax ke paiso se jo bhi suvidhayein milti hai voh lena band kar do. Iss train ke AC classes mein bahut sare middle class aur upper middle class log travel karte the. Iske AC coaches full chal rahe the itne AC coaches Kam karne ki jarurat nahi thi.

In total 5 SL and 3 GS plus coaches were more than enough for this train. But keeping only one 3rd AC coach is a very bad decision.

    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...
