A total of 337 headphones distributed to passengers for the entertainment systems on-board the Mumbai-Goa Tejas Express were stolen in just four round trips after it debuted last Monday, a railway source said.
For its fifth trip on Saturday from CST, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) provided low-cost headphones.
The IRCTC spokesperson did not confirm the number of missing headphones, but said that it had bought 1,000 headphones, each costing Rs30
Indian Railway had introduced the systems to provide a flight-like travel experience for passengers.
The train has 990 seats across 13 passenger coaches, including an executive coach that has more comfortable seats with neck and leg rests.
The system has preloaded games, movies and songs, besides FM channels. For the first four trips, headphones of a leading brand were handed over to passengers before the start of the journey.
However, after the first trip itself, the train came back with fewer headphones, damaged infotainment screens and waste strewn all over.
The cost of each headphone was around Rs200. The new ones will cost Rs30 each, a source said.
“Many passengers do not return the headphones before alighting and take those with them thinking that its cost was included in their ticket fare,”said an attendant on the train.
He said the on-board staff are now afraid that IRCTC might recover the cost of missing headphones from their salary.
Without catering services, a Tejas Express chair-car and executive-car ticket between Mumbai and Goa costs Rs 1,285 and Rs2,585, respectively.
According to an IRCTC source, from Friday’s trip, instead of distributing headphones to the passengers, staffers issued the headphones to the passengers after noting down their seat details and collected it from them.
It considerably brought down the number of missing headphones, the source said.
Meanwhile, many of the 990 infotainment screens were also found damaged.
According to officials, passengers damaged the buttons of three screens by pressing hard on them with an object. There were scratches on many screens.
Many passengers who travelled on the train on Friday complained about inedible food and poor WiFi.
Travellers who chose the non-vegetarian meal were served an omelette with rusk, juice, butter and jam.
Vegetarians, who were served upma with rusk, a cupcake, tea, juice, butter and jam, also said the meal did not meet their expectations.
In addition, WiFi was only available to passengers travelling in the executive chair car, and even they complained about weak signals and connection issues.

Bahar ki countries me speed, safety , punctuality jaisi basic cheeze achieve karli hai baad me airlines jaisi facilities di hai.
Yaha to ab bhi har 15 din me koi na koi train drail hui jati hai to fir kya fayda airlines jaisi service ka. Aur airlines me bhi headphones jaisi cheezo par paise waste nahi karte. Bcz sabko pata hai aaj kal yeh sabke pas hota hai.

Yeh to bahot galat baat hai. Railway koi private business ki jagah nahi hai. Yaha har passenger ki safety important hai. Aap aise kaise bol sakte ho ke agar safety chahiye to flight lelo.

Rajiv Chowk pe already load kam hone laga hai. People Coming from Kashmere Gate towards Blue Line to Noida will Take Violet Line instead of Yellow , it will meet on Mandi House.. Same case While coming from Noida/Vaishali. Rajiv Chowk Will mainly cater to People Coming on Yellow line and going West Delhi

Updates on Bidar Gulbarga New line at Sultanpur Station(Outskirts of Gulbarga)
- All platform works completed with FUB..
- LED lights are shining
- Huge Goods shed is almost ready( the existing Gulbarga station Goods shed will be shifted to Sultanpur Station soon)
Once the Goods shed at Gulbarga is shifted to Sultanpur station(outskirts of gulbarga on Bidar line), there will be some space for stabling lines at GR station
- Sultanpur station looks to have 3 platforms (the third one may be used for Goods stabling)
- Overall works looks excellent as usual nothing to mention since its SCR line!

As per latest the Line commissioning dead line is August 2017( next 3-4 months). And pit line at Bidar(Khanapur) all civil works is done already may be they ware waiting for some grand day to open... nearing elections... as few more things need big band opening like Yadgir Railway factory, Bidar-Gulbarga new line, Gulbarga-Wadi electrification, Bidar Pit line, and Gulbarga Railway division (?????)...

It will not be a SCR Line after GR railway division formation ...the bad luck of scr is that it will construct New lines and doubling and electrification but after finishing of works it will be shifted to other zone (Wadi-Vkb line, Wadi-Rc line Wil be part of SWR Zone)

Passenger Rajdhani bana dijiye isko.
Adoni se 50 kms pehle Guntakal, and Mantralayam Road se 26 kms baad Raichur stop hai. I think that are sufficient.

I meant to differentiate between a "passenger" Rajdhani and "express" Rajdhani.
Apke logic ke hisab se to fir har Rajdhani ko chote chote stations pe rukwa do.
