Is it compulsory for me to tip (pay baksheesh to) the catering, cleaning and bedroll staff at the end of the journey? Should I encourage this practice?

The practice of soliciting of tips by contract staff in trains such as this is assuming alarming proportions. The catering staff employed by the private contractor came for tips at around 1 pm about 3 hrs before the train was to reach YPR. An elderly gentleman sitting opposite me in the sleeper class offered Rs. 10 which was refused on the ground that the "FIXED RATE" per pax was Rs. 30 for SLEEPER CLASS. Ultimately he refused to pay any tips and neither did I, because their behaviour left a lot to be desired. 30 mns later the CLEANING STAFF also came for their BAKSHEESH saying that they were not entitled to any share in the tips given to catering staff and hence they had to be paid separately. Fortunately the bed roll wallahs who were employees of IRCTC did not come up with their demands. I think it is high...

time, we as passengers, take steps to curb this menace and not hope that IR will bale us out.
