Appeal to the Railways

October 10, 2017


Apropos the letter by N. Devarajan (SOM dated Oct.6), I fully endorse the views of the writer. The Railways are not expected to be dishonest. Another instance of dishonesty by the Railways is the Tatkal Scheme. About half the reserved berths in a train is sold under this scheme. It is not a favour but cheating the travellers by collecting almost double the fares.

The new DRM may please look into this and scrap the scheme in toto. In fact, all the reserved berths should be thrown open to the travellers without any quota. This would enable the passengers to get the berths even in an emergency. Also, ID card numbers be printed in the tickets and the TTEs are to verify the same during the travel. This would eliminate impersonation and misuse.
