Dear Moderators/ Members/ Travelers/ Visitors/ All Dear Indians..
Here, I am raising a Question not to you, but to Indian Railways.
My Friends, As per Law, only 30% of total available seats/berth can be considered as making W/L.
But, as per current trend you may found many trains having WL more than 500 or 700. that is considerably much more than 30%
as per rule and also there is no hope for clearing such long WL. Railway gives this much WL in order to make side income of cancellation or more income if more people travel in WL.
This is completely wrong. I am filing RTI (Right to Information) act to know why such long WL are given? and What are basis to allow this long WL???
I request you all, To support me by sending me examples of much longer WL Ticket PNR. also you can send me screen shot of WL positions. I also request you to come up and file RTI, if possible...
You can reach me on my cell phone or my mail id as well, and make your reply here, the list of replies will make our motive more stronger!! Hoping for good support!

Take Nethravathy or Graibreth train and get down at Thane. Purchase a local ticket to Bandra, take local train towards CSTM and get down at Dadar. From Dadar take Foot over bridge and cross to Western line (Western Railway) and take local train which goes towards Virar/Borivali/Andheri and get down at Bandra.
Second option is get down at LTT last stop and take a rickshaw to Bandra which will cost around Rs100/-
Third option is if you are travelling in the train which passes through Mumbai , that is, the trains
that goes to Gujarath and Rajasthan side get down at Wasai Road and from there take a local train towards Churchgate or Dadar and get down at Bandra.
Fourth option least prefered and a little confusing for first time traveller: get down at last stop LTT go to Thilak Nagar station walkable distance from LTT purchase a local ticket to Bandra and take train towards CSTM (harbour line) get down at the very next station Kurla and take another train towards CSTM (Main line) and get down at Dadar. From there as described above take FOB cross to Western line and take local towards Virar/Borivali/Andheri.
Thank you.

There is another alternative to fourth option - Take a direct local to Andheri from Tilak Nagar(frequency is less).

    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...

    -@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,...
