    I got the AC tickets of rajdhani express and there was 3 hours for train to come at hazrat nizamuddin station.we decided​ to wait at AC waiting room.but it was completely full.not a inch space to stand.then we move to normal waiting hall without​ AC.we got seat’s easily here
    With this incident I was happy that country is people’s are preferring AC more.

    • June 4, 2017 at 9:15 PM

      Due to Weather, You can Asked to Authorized Person Make Sure there is No Non AC Passengers inside AC Waiting Hall.

      मौसम के कारण, आप अधिकृत व्यक्ति से पूछ सकते हैं सुनिश्चित करें कि एसी प्रतीक्षा कक्ष के अंदर कोई गैर एसी यात्रियों नहीं है।

      Good Luck.

    I’m travelling from egmore (ms) to erode (Ed) in S5 compartment of train 06027. I have tried to book ticket from egmore today but I was unable to book so booked from AJJ to erode. Also took general ticket till AJJ and requested TTR since chart got prepared already so I was unable to book. I’m ready to pay the difference but TTR told me to pay 750 if bill and 350 without bill. Asked me twice how much you can provide and he is bargaining to fix the amount. Train going to reach erode and he got 100rs from me without bill. I don’t have any audio or video proof.

    Worst quality of dinner
    Giriraj Agarwal traveling from Kolkata to New Delhi Rajdhani 12301 in B-9 seat no 16 with PNR 6305522798 . The dinner provided in train was very worst quality and I was not able to eat the food and left it as it is , the dal was smelling badly and mater paneer gravy was full of water and peas was not boiled properly . The parantas are so dry that even two peoples cannot bite it . 

    So this is the very poor experience of mine. We pay a very good amount for this train . Kindly take the matter to senior officials and improve quality of food at this type of high class trains .
    Looks like it would have been better if I would have carried food from home.
    We pay so much amount of money to travel in rajdhani. And this is what the condition is. I immediately need my refund. I will also go to the consumer forum for this

    I’m Travelling to Yesvantpur from ALUVA railway station. Boarded the train at 23.10 on 15.09.2017. No water in my G 12 Compartment since that time. While approached the TTE for registering the complaint, TTE told me that no complaint book available with him. Hence registering the complaint.
