Railway proposes Wi-Fi facility at ‘A1’ & ‘A’ category stations and in 50 rakes of important trains in Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duranto category. This is in addition to Wi-Fi facility provided in 3 rakes of Howrah-New Delhi-Howrah Rajdhani Express as a pilot project.
For the pilot project on Howrah-New Delhi Rajdhani Express, an amount of Rs 6.67 crore has been spent by Eastern Railway. Further, provision of Wi-Fi in 50 rakes of important trains in Rajdhan/Shatabdi/Duranto category at an estimated cost of Rs. 55 crore is planned. In the current financial year, an amount of Rs. 1.00 crore has been allocated to Northern Railway which is executing this work. At stations, Wi-Fi facility will be provided by RailTel Corporation of Indian Limited (CIL) a
public sector undertaking under the Ministry of Railways through Internet Service Providers with no investment by Railways.
For Wi-Fi in trains and at stations, Railway will be using a cost effective technology and the same is being deliberated. Once the technology is selected, further action will be taken to make it operational.

I traveled in this train on 5th june by sleeper class. Following r my comments:
1. The train left BBS sharply at 8.15 am. Through out the journey it was 5-15 mins before time at its technical halts. But it reached delhi at around 7 am. It stood outside delhi for 30 mins.
2. The coaches being new are good. I got a side lower and i was surprised o see a charging point even for a side lower seat. A cleaner was mopping the passage and toilets every 2
hrs. I gave him a 10 rupees at d end of journey. The poor chap deserved it more than attendant.
3. The speed of the train was the best part of the journey. Just out of BBS & i think it was touching 70-80 kmph and after CTC maybe 100kmph.
4. Now the important part - FOOD. Terrible, pathetic call it watever. Maybe food is better in AC class. But i could not touch my lunch and just eat a little in my dinner. In bf - 2 bread slices, butter, sauce omlette, 2 water bottles(tast for the whole journey). Lunch - Half cooked rice, burnt chapatis, 1 egg curry, dal, pickle, 1 small rasgulla. Evening tea. Dinner - Same as lunch but in desert laddu.
5. The attendants were a bit rude but looking at d food i thought they dont care about sleeper class passengers.
So my review about this train is tat its best for reaching on time. But for food u better carry ur own if in sleeper and about AC i dont know.

Actually in this case he is mentioning charging points for side berths.
Normally for side berths we wont find them...i think all new LHB rakes are going to have them. Any other trains with side lower charging points ???

It all depends on the mood of the TTE. IF there is availability, TTE may/may not impose fine.
As per railway rules he should not levy a fine.

Roshan is right. If a passenger holding 2nd class unreserved ticket, get permission from the TTE to board sleeper class, subject, however to his confirmation of availability of sleeper berth, he need not pay any fine. He has to pay fare difference plus usual charges.

Yes, Abhishek ji, you are absolutely right. He is not suppossed to levy a fine, if his consent is obtained.
If any passenger is found travelling in sleeper class with improper ticket, he is liable to fare difference plus penality.

I think there is a penalty of Rs. 250 plus difference between fare of sleeper and IInd cass. Sleeper class fare is charged for a minimum of 200 kms., even if distance you travel is less than it.
Yes, its totaly depends upon mood of TTE and how he interprets the rules and applying it.

If intimated in advance before boarding or immediately after boarding no penalty will be levied. But if caught by the TTE or the squad one or two stops after boarding point then fine will be levied. I have travelled a number of times during day time by West coast express in day time and by the Kerala bound trains coming from North for my journeys from mas to cbe. Even if vacant berths are not available, the TTEs politely advice to get down at the next station and board the general compartment.
Once when I found no TTEs in the sleeper class on board but a number of berths vacant, I walked upto the AC compartment through
the vestibules and informed the TTE there. He agreed to request the TTE concerned to come to my place and collect the difference in fare. But the TTE reached my place only after the train reached JTJ and collected the fare from kpd to cbe and also suggested that if any squad comes, I have to inform them that I boarded the sleeper class at kpd only.
Similarly on another occasion, I boarded the intercity express from cbe to mas and requested the TTE for a seat in AC CC. He suggested me come the AC coach at ed. He allotted the seat from ed quota for which the reserved passenger has not turned up and collected the fare from ed to mas only.
