Please fix the Indian Train Problem

1. Remove AC1 and AC2 compartments

Take a look at Mumbai Rajdhani

AC3 can pack 3 times more people and still generated more money than AC1

If you increase face of AC3 from 2040 to 2126.25 (just 86 Rupee), AC3 coach will generate same revenue as AC2.

2. Increase General Coachs.

3. Remove VIP QUOTAs

4. Remove Tatkal Quota and Premium Tatkal — Its a LOOT

Bus, Airlines, etc don’t have such a system called Tatkal Quota. why we need such a thing for which we can never take benefits.

You have more chances to win a lottery than a TATKAL ticket.

As far as I know, ONLY 20% seats are reserved for Tatkal Quota.

If you cannot get your seat booked in 80%, why the hell you want to try luck in Tatkal Quota

At least, we will plan better than hoping for luck on Tatkal.

5. Second Seating

6. We don’t need your FOOD

Almost every time, we travel using AC3, etc, food is included by default. Food quality is always BAD because you have prepaid your meal.

You will get better food at the same price from outside restaurants and it will be delivered at your seat.

Also, once the Pantry Car is removed, you will get 1 extra Sleep coach.

7. Same Speed

From Delhi to Bhopal, the fastest train is 8 hours (Rajdhani) & Slowest is ASR-CSTM-EXP — 14 Hours

1 people inside Rajdhani waste 15 minutes each of 10 people in other trains.

Delhi metros run at the same speed and each train is just separated by just 5–10 minutes. Same speed and every train following one another will bring huge efficiency in the whole system.

8. Privatization

USA, Canada, Brazil, Japan, etc have full Private railway system. Indian trains are fully Nationalised.
