I traveled by this train on 19.8.2015, in a Second Sitting Coach No D4. I noticed that the adjoining Coach No D5 was better with broader seats and better ventilation. The D4 coach is very old and is very uncomfortable to sit or travel. The windows have a very small opening, restricting the air circulation, specially when the train travels through the viaducts which are more than 20 along the route and the diesel engine fumes and smoke smell remains in the coach for a long time and its very uncomfortable to breath, due to lack of proper ventilation in the compartment.
This is also true for all trains on this route in non-air conditioned coaches. The railways need to look
into this issue and find a way to make the travel less hazardous for the passengers.

the coaches and rakes are shuffled very often so chances are there might be newer coaches.

Unresponsive website -click here I have been trying to access the site and check the seat availability. The site has stopped responding to my queries, since almost 30 days. The seat availability does not respond. I request to please check in to this error and rectify the same. Also please note that the site is not available on mobile browsers. Can we please have a mobile app similar to this web page and almost all parameters are covered, that are available here.

I request the Indian Railways to publish the Time Table change atleast one month in Advance for facilitating the advance booking. I cancelled my ticket due to lack of information regarding the travel schedule of trains to Mumbai from Goa

The distance between VASAI ROAD - WR (BSR) AND THIVIM - KR (THIVM) is shown as 534 kms. The ticket booked shows a distance of 700 kms. and is charged for this distance. Is the IRCTC trying to stretch the distance by 166 kms to charge extra from a passenger. Is there a way of stopping this overcharging practice if it is being done.

Total kms on Konkan Railway are inflated by about 40% to recover the costs of construction.

This is KR. On KR the distance shown is inflated as it is a private corporation.

This is being done legally for nearly the last one decade and a half. Distance on KR is inflated to compensate for the humungous investment in its construction.

Isn't it misguiding the passengers by giving wrong distances on the tickets. The railways should be honest to take the difference by showing it in the breakup of charges. Its profiteering by the Govt. by creating a corporation owned by it and showing it as a private operator.

KR doesn't have its own trains. So only source of income was Ro-Ro freights. The revenue earned from them would be too less to recover the huge construction cost. Hence to increase income kms are inflated. IR isn't cheating,This is known to everyone
