    Just now I am traveling in train no.22126 from ldh to ngp A4 birth no.31 at ambala station still number 34 was not giving me rail neer after 4 to 5 times just he refused to give me rail neer it was showing in display but he forced me to took that local water bottle which was in his fridge I ask for complain book they misbehaved whit me n push me from thir shop the rail neer was put at the back side of local bottling fridge,please took action they are interested to sale local water without RO n without proper packing.


    When I boarded 12510 train in Visakhapatnam for Bangalore. It is very bad maintenance in 12510 train. So many passengers with out reservation occupied the entire coach. Despite requests they didn’t move from my berth. After hard efforts, finally they gave my berth. Iam not blaming for this as they are all having their requirements in this journey. I don’t know how the Indian Railways selling tickets more than capacity. A definite review is required in this regard.

    We r the passengers of the train no 16382 PNR No 465-6750288. We are travelling from ernakulam town to tirupati while we are travelling When TT arrived we showed our confirmation SMS and our ID card but he didn’t allow to travel he told us to show original ticket
    Unfortunately the tickets was with our co passengers in other compartment of the same train at that time their is no mobile range in the train and he fined us 365 rupees per head and the receipt no R0221708 after collecting the original ticket when we approached TT he said “he cannot do nothing go and complaint in ernakulam station” so kindly so necessary steps to refund our amount.
    Thanking you
    Your faithfully
