  • K.N.Agrawal

    why Railways are not publishing the extra coaches in different trains to clear extra rush of summer. I have booked 4 bearth in 2nd A/c in 2429 Rajdhani Bangalore to H.Nizamuddin on 9th May 2010 and wait listing 7-8-9-10 has not been confiremd so far. Today night Dept. of train is about 8 p.m. and whole family is under great tension regarding the journey will be performed or not. At last we have to book urgent flight and have to pay huge amount because we chose railway journey the Govt. of India and Ministry of Railway all the Govt. employee like behaviour.
