I have traveled in this train from Faizabad Jn (FD) to Nasik Road (NK), D/J being 4th March, 2014 and coach/berth being H1/Cabin A/Berth-1. No Pantry Car has been there in this train contrary to your website which includes PC in the description of its Rake/Coach Composition. Co-passengers too have confirmed that no PC is provided in this train. Kindly make the necessary correction.

This is being over-optimistic. Your daughter-in-law wasn't even supposed to get a berth as designated by the system.
It was purely out of the generosity of the TTE that he had allowed her to travel in a separate berth (Be it in whatsoever coach).

Re# 994770-48            Tags   Past Edits
The duty TTE was not very much conversant on the relevant rules. But, he has charged not even a single rupee for allotting a 2AC berth in the same HA-1 coach. He has entered my daughter-in-law's name in the chart as well as on the printed hard copy of e-ticket properly with his signature and mentioning the PNR Number against the allotted 2AC berth number. So far as refund of difference is concerned, he suggested not to proceed because for issuing of the certificate he will have to charge penalty for boarding the train with a WL ticket. Thus, at the end, matter would remain almost the same financially. No refund can be claimed as journey is actually being performed. My son accepted his suggestion very gracefully and thanked the TTE for his appreciable and wonderful co-operation.

Re# 994770-49            Tags   Past Edits
Right sir. On humanitarian grounds, I am happy that the WL pax, in this case, your daughter-in-law, was permitted to travel. However, I think we will all do well to recognize the action of the TTE as a GESTURE OF GOODWILL rather than as A MATTER OF ENTITLEMENT. I had communicated my views in this regard in pvt yesterday to one of our admins and I reproduce the same for your kind information. Sir, needless to mention, this is my PERSONAL OPINION. I would once again like to kickstart a debate in this regard and elicit viewpoints from my fellow members at IRI.
" Thanks for the reference xxxxxx. IMHO, it is a BIG NO.The waitlisted passenger cannot travel regardless of the
...
more...
fact that his name appears on the chart or his ticket is not auto-cancelled. My question is which berth will the WL pax occupy in such a case ? Sharing it with the confirmed pax may be one option. But if only 1 out 4 tkts are confirmed while the other 3 remain in WL, will 4 of them share a berth. And if the confirmed passenger is allotted a coupe, will 4 of them and the other occupant of the coupe, that is 5 in ALL, pile on to one coupe. IMHO the fundamental reason for NO AUTO CANCELLATION of such tkts is to PROVIDE THE CONFIRMED PAX AN OPPORTUNITY TO UNDERTAKE THE JOURNEY which he would have been unable to do in case of auto cancellation. However a TDR for full refund can be filed in respect of the WL passengers. Since auto cancellation DOES NOT HAPPEN it is but NATURAL THAT NAMES OF ALL THE PASSENGERS WILL APPEAR ON THE CHARTS. But this does not AUTOMATICALLY ENTITLE ALL OF THEM TO UNDERTAKE THE JOURNEY IN THE SAME COACH causing INCONVENIENCE TO OTHER RESERVED PASSENGERS.
PS. These are PURELY MY PERSONAL VIEWS which have been UPHELD BY QUITE A FEW TTEs IN ER/SER. "

Re# 994770-50            Tags   Past Edits
I support your opinion even if it is your 'personal opinion'. The competent authorities in Indian Railway should reconsider on the rules for Partially Confirmed PNRs. I now realise that railway users pass through how much of scrapes in similar situation because of some vague and contradictory rules. On one side, in partly confirmed PNRs the Wailisted Passenger/s' ticket, money is not refunded automatically, whereas on the other side Railway does not take the responsibility of providing berth/s even if their name/s appear/s in the Reservation Chart as waitlisted. I think, this provision is there only to make a room practically for the waitlisted passenger/s left behind in partly confirmed PNRs (if at all, there is/are vacant berth/s after the departure of the train). Now,question arises as how can a waitlisted passenger of a partly confirmed PNR board a train or even enter a platform without a Platform ticket. Again, what...
more...
if there is no vacant berth after the departure of the train. Ticket is not cancelled but the journey is denied.
Here the role of duty TTE is either of 'Devdoot' or of a 'Khalnayak' ! He too is helpless if no berth is vacant, no matter, how much generous and humane he is. He can not creat an extra berth in a fully reserved coach.
