Yes It’s True, Practically Due to this negative booking rules passengers of railway unable to book rooms and railway loss laks of rupees every Day.
I Have Ticket of 22204 VSKP DURONTO Express Date 4 November 2015, the Departure Time 20.30 Evening. We are Two Person Male and Female.
As we know we reach SC on Morning around 7 to 8 AM. So we decide to book retiring for till 8 PM.
I found there is no Slot available just because of the third Class irctctourism rules.
Slot available if I am select 3 Nov as Check in and 4th Nov as Check Out. Surprised to check timing 7 AM to 7AM 24 hours as i am searching for 7-8 AM to 7-8 PM.
|24 Hrs.||1000.0||02-Nov-2015 , 0700||03-Nov-2015 , 0700|
|24 Hrs.||1000.0||03-Nov-2015 , 0700||04-Nov-2015 , 0700|
As per Rules I only booked the Room If i select Two different Days.
But in Booking there is only 2/3/4 Dates are Shown, It is Batter if they also provide the 5th November 2015.
Due to lack of this negative rules of irctc i unable to book retiring rooms also there is no dormitory availability.
IRCTC must need top change retiring room booking policy as indian railway loss laks of revenue daily due to this unpractical rules.
