**Question of honor?**
Since after LHB fication the Livery is getting common in between Rajdhani and other trains, do you feel this is an injustice to Rajdhani?
I don't have any issue with the common livery12%12
Rajdhani should stick to the current livery. other trains should get a new theme (Please comment)41%41
I miss the older Red/Cream Raj Livery11%11
I propose another livery for Rajdhani (Please comment)35%35
Any other suggestion (Please comment)1%1

its not a non stop rajdhani.Its like the train doesnot have a stop from vadodara to kota ,kota to nzm and runs non stop in this section ,that makes it as a non stop rajdhani for more kilometer between two stops

The only man in IR who doesn't get his due respect after doing his job in a humble & good manner. Mr CRS= Commissioner of Railway Safety.
IR is going on with it's neglect towards Passenger safeties even though Mr CRS is trying hard to inspect faults & develop a fullproof safety measure for Passengers.
