Train/ Station rating feature in IRI is actually very useful IMO. It helps the passengers to be properly prepared before starting their journey.
Here I am particularly focussing in the station rating system. Though the existing parameters are good and quite satisfying, I feel adding a point 'Public Address System' would be more helpful because I have seen many cases of passenger suffering due to poor announcement. If this parameter is added then a member should consider following factors before voting in this segment:
Quality and strategically positioning of the microfone- sound should be loud enough and should reach every corner of the station.
2) Quality of the announcement- voice should be clear enough and properly repeated in multiple languages (Regional/ Hindi/ English).
3) Timeliness of the announcement- Should be made well advance so that passengers get adequate time to reach to the platform.
4) Master Display Board- Should be placed in common places like station entrance, ticket counter, waiting area etc and properly display the platforms for trains in multiple languages (Regional/ Hindi/ English).
5) Electronic Platform Display:
A) Should be available in all the platforms.
B) All the boards should be properly maintained and functional- not a single board should be off and display the train number/ name and the coach number.
C) Accuracy- Boards should be in sync with the coach composition of the trains- for example the B1 of TN Express should stand perfectly besides the board marked as B1. And if GT departs from the same platform and S1 stand where B1 of TN stops, then the same display board should show S1 for GT.
So what do you think, should this 'Public Address System' be added in station rating?
**Adding a large number if tags for better visibility. Apologies if you find it disturbing. Let me know and I will remove some tags.
Yes. it is needed93%27
No. it is not that much needed0%0
No idea. I don't follow train/ station rating7%2

That's could be true. Also I have the feeling that some cases the rating provided by the members are bit partial (no offence to the genuine voters)- mostly to promote home station/ favourite train or down vote the rival station/ zone/ train etc. However, still I feel that it could be an useful addition.

Lalu didn't do the groundwork for the speed upgrade of BPL Shatabdi. That credit goes to his predecessors, particularly Nitish Kumar. The track and signalling upgrades, and extensive track renewals were carried out during Nitish Kumar's term. Even the indigenous manufacture of LHB coaches was done during Nitish Kumar's term. The official speed up in 2006, was nothing but an formal inauguration of the service using the upgraded rolling stock and utilizing the upgraded route.
While he does deserve credit for a lot of his work during his term as an RM, he gets a lot of undue credit for his predecessor's efforts. A substantial share of Lalu's accomplishments on freight loading, running more trains, increasing
freight revenue were due to Nitish kumar's spending on infrastructure, the restructuring that was started during his tenure as RM and a favorable market. As usual, people doing the background, non-fancy work are rarely appreciated.
But of course, Lalu deserves credit for smart freight fare structuring, effective management of bureaucrats and most importantly, building on the work of his predecessor, rather than ignoring it like many other RM's did.
And there is no use speculating on what he 'could have' accomplished. The growth in the first half of his tenure, was accompanied by a decline in the 2nd half. Facing corruption charges and after losing power in Bihar, Lalu had the motivation to redeem himself in the public opinion.
