The current anarchy is the result of senseless decision taken by IRCTC and IR. Agreed that some agents may be using software to book tickets, but that does not mean all the agents across India are using the same tactics to book tickets. Moreover, the so-called 'Aam Aadmi' of India is not tech-savvy to book a ticket from very unreliable IRCTC site. I personally feel, barring few agents, most of the agents were doing a commendable job by providing tickets to the Aam Aadmi so that they do not have to stand in long 'Q's. IRCTC should understand that India is not America. All the households do not have computer and Internet connection. Even if they go to cyber-cafe to book ticket, most of the cyber cafes open only after 10:00 AM when all the Tatkal tickets are already booked. How can a labourer, who wants to visit his native place,...
can book a ticket? IRCTC should understand the hard realities of Indian populace. Can IRCTC provide a solution to this Labourer? If yes...I feel, all the agents should be permanently banned. It is clearly visible that after Star News Report with Loud Emotional words, IRCTC is in a state of Panic. But it should understand, media just needs hype - "STAR NEWS KI KHABAR KA ASAR". The real impact is that today Aam Aadmi is in more horrible situation. Star News should also cover long queues and woes at PRS Counters, Corrupt Rail Babus and Touts. IRCTC should consider things in right perspective. The decision to allow only individuals to book ticket would benefit only few urbane, educated people who possess the computer and Internet and know its operation and the method to book ticket. IRCTC come out of panic, look at the ground realities and act accordingly.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@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,...
