Does this mean that if 2 lady passenger aged 24yrs can book their seat under ladies quota???
I have come across some rules regarding booking a ladies quota seat but confused after reading following rules.
Soiurce - click here
ExclusiveAccommodation for Ladies, Sr. Citizen and Pregnant Women
accommodation of six berths in sleeper class of all the trains is earmarked for exclusive use of lady passengers.
ii.In addition to this a combined quota of 2 lower berths is earmarked in sleeper class, AC 3-Tier and AC 2-Tier classes for Sr. Citizens, Female passengers 45 years of age and above traveling alone and pregnant women in all trains.
iii.Pregnant women will be required to submit a certificate of pregnancy certified by one registered Medical Practitioner at the time of booking against the quota.

I rarely find tickets available under LD quota in 3AC. In SL class also this quota gets filled before GN quota.

I have booked three tickets each for two dates one for 14-05-2013 from NDLS to TCR which is a confirmed ticket and another for 18-05-2013 in Waiting List. The ticket charge was Rs. 4821 without their commission of Rs. 20.
I cancelled both these tickets on same day and IRCTC has credited Rs. 4626/- in confirmed ticket and Rs. 4746/- in Waiting Listed second ticket. In both tickets Rs. 175/- was service tax. In first ticket Rs. 195/- was deducted and in second ticket Rs. 75 was deducted.
anybody tell me what is the basis of deduction in these two cases. Also tell me Rs. 175/- of Service tax in both the tickets is refunded in the cancellation of my tickets.

For CNF tickets in 3AC cancellation charges is Rs 60 per passenger
For WL tickets in 3AC cancellation charges is Rs 20 per passenger
If a AC ticket is cancelled Rs 5 per passenger from service tax is deducted and other is refunded.
So for CNF tickets Rs 195 (65 x 3) was deducted.
WL tickets Rs 75 (25 x 3) was deducted.
For both the tickets Rs 15 (5 x 3) was deducted from the service tax portion and remaining Rs 156 (171 - 15) is refunded.
The PDF copy of the ticket shows Rs 171 as service tax and not Rs 175

Any idea why Rs 5 is deducted from the service tax? Is Rs 5 irrespective of the value of the tickets? across AC1, 2 and 3?

It is Rs. 171/- not 175/- as mentioned by me in my earlier posts. At the time of introduction of Service Tax in railway booking I have heard that the Service Tax portion will not be refunded by the Railway at the time of cancellation and we have to file separately with Service Tax department for the refund like in the case of TDS. From this it got cleared that Service also refunded after deducting Rs. 5/- per booked ticket, balance amount get credited in the bank.

I am trying find out which train makes longest journey for shorter distance
I am applying a simple formula to take a ratio (Distance by Train/Straight(air) distance)
Straight distance can be found by : click here
I have for 09307/09308 Indore Yesvantpur, Straight Distance = 1074, Train distance = 1910
am naming the ratio as "distance factor"
Distance Factor: 1910/1074 = 1.778
Please post the train with greater factor than previous ones.

Bhopal to Itarsi - 11272/VINDHYACHAL EXP
Straight distance = 78 km
Train Distance = 738 km
Distance Factor = 738/78 = 9.4615
