Bribe taken by TTE of Indian Railway is common affairs
i am not disclosing my name. But in case you need my help i'll come up to help you .
I was traveling from Mumbai and was going to jaipur along with my wife on 24th jan. by Firozpur-janta express . My PNR no was 851-8123315.this ticket was from mumbai to ratlam and i suppose to get down at ratlam and suppose to get another train PASHCHIM Express .When i just asked the TTE Mr Meena (Tall, bald )
that will i get a seat in PASHCHIM. He said no u'll not .when i inquire from other passengers that will this train go to jaipur so they said no but you will get a convince from Sawai Madhopur, so you just ask TTE for extension of your ticket so i went to Mr Meena and asked for extension, then he told no space.Then after 30 minutes he came to me and said that their are 2 seats available but you know the rush into train so if you will give 300 rupees extra other then the receipt charges then only i'll give those seats to you .Then i paid 350 rupees as receipt and 300 as bribe, total 650 rupees for 2 seats .
I had to pay because was wife was along with me and she was not well. I am filing a complain against TTE Mr Meena for taking Bribe .
the idea to make extra money is good but shouldn't be at the expense of passengers.
they have increased the cancellation charges to rs. 40 - which is acceptable.
the tiolets are in as it is precarious conditions. another 8 seats will stretch them too far.
Railway shold not Ignore Safety and comfort of passengers for making some extra money. If they seal the leakages, discretionary quota in reservations and complimentary passes to poiticians and their supporters a lot of saving can be made.
