I have travelled by Train No.11035 Sharavati Express on Thursday 24th September 2015 from Dadar to Belagavi IInd AC II Tier.
A) The Compartment was not clean, the Bedsheets were also not clean.
B) Air Conditioner was too cold.
C) because of the above I am sick with throat infection and which has led to fever.
Health issues
Air-conditioning systems in Indian Railways promote growth and spread of microorganisms, such as Legionella pneumophila, the infectious agent responsible for Legionnaires' disease, or thermophilic actinomycetes; however, this is prevalent in poorly maintained water cooling system. The cooling system is not kept clean. (usually by means of a chlorine treatment).
Conversely, air conditioning (including filtration, humidification, cooling and disinfection) is not used to provide a clean, safe, hypoallergenic atmosphere in railway compartments and other environments where an appropriate atmosphere is critical to Passanger's safety and well-being.
Excessive air conditioning has negative effect on skin, drying it out, and has caused dehydration.
E) The train reached Belgavi Railway Station 25 minutes late. I understand that this train is always late.
I will be obliged if any reader can guide me to make Indian Railways implement the clean environment and clean - hygienic air-conditioning system.

Mr. Kishor, thank you for being concerned about my health & advice - how to take care of oneself when traveling in an AC Coach.
You seem to have completely lost the point I was making. I reiterate that the cleanliness in the Indian Railways is one of the worst. I had asked "if any reader can guide me to make Indian Railways implement the clean environment and clean - hygienic air-conditioning system."
I request you to please take this blog more seriously.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
