While safety and security for women and children are prime concerns among the people, people also demand action on punctuality of trains.
Here are a few words of advise by the common man to the railway ministry.
Word of advise
Nishant, a student from Ahmedabad: CCTV in every coach for security reasons
Jaiswanti, homemaker from Nagpur: Improving water and food facilities
Avantika, Corporate associate: Better service staff; Staff members usually misbehave when we complain of food or demand for something else
Dear @DVSBJP Plz do introduce a Indian Railway APP for Smartphones (Android & iOS) to track trains, PNR Status, Availability, Schedules etc.— Navroop Singh (@s_navroop) July 8, 2014

Indian railway passengers pay 2-3rs/km however the same distance coast in bullet train is 8-9 Rs/KM. Is India ready to bear the bullet fare?— ashutosh mishra (@ashu3page) July 8, 2014

Vikram Chhajer: Tickets Which are alloted in wait list should confirm . service must first come first serve basic . no quota system should be in railway . nor for any minister nor for any VIP.
Mathukutty PV: SL class in Trains from Bihar/Howrah to Kerala is packed with Non-reserved Bihar/Bengal/Orissa workers. Reserved people have great difficulty, because these workers occupy their seats and even sleep on half seats and floor. This is a security problem also. Railway must be collecting money as fine from them and earning that amount. Even in 3AC also many are traveling without reservation giving trouble to reserved passengers. More coaches or special trains should be available for these workers.
He further adds: Special squad should be introduced for lightning checking of Tickets and TTES to control corruption in providing reservations. Reduce Free railway tkts/pass for staff/vips/politicians etc to earn money and save railway. How much money will be going as free tickets?
Pratap Chandra Behera from Odisha: A daily / weekly train should run from chirimiri,chhatisgarh to odisha,bhubaneswar via sambalpur because 60 percent public are from ganjam,odisha
Pbd Dev from Kumarghat: EVERY DAY TRAIN RUNNING FROM LUMDING TO AGARTALA IS IN VERY BAD CONDITION.
PASSENGERS OF RESERVED CLASS OF EXPRESS TRAIN IN THIS ROUTE TRAVEL EVERYDAY LIKE AS A PASSENGER OF LOCAL TRAIN.
TT TAKING BRIBES & ALLOWED TICKET LESS PASSENGER TO THE RESERVED COMPARTMENT & SOMETIMES GIVES SAME RESERVED SEAT TO OTHER TICKETLESS PASSENGER.
PASSENGER WITH VALID TICKETS CANNOT TRAVEL COMFORTABLY BECAUSE EVERY RESERVED COMPARTMENT IS REMAINED FILLED WITH TICKETLESS PASSENGERS & VARIOUS GOODS BY GIVING BRIBES TO TT IN PALTFORM OF STATIONS.
HON'BLE RLY MINISTER SHOULD TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION.
Nirmal Oraon from Ranchi: Ranchi jn se bade cities tak trains start kiya jaye (just think that.. Ranchi is the capital, but there are no trains to going big cities)
Abhishek Kumar Singh: Need to clean station,avoid beggars to get into tran,proper security check up to all,all railway staff should be there in proper uniform,no food suplier are allowed to enter door they should stay in there store no shouting like tea tea.....cleaning staff from train,police facility,station miniral cooler water facility,........luggage limit.......
Pradeep Rajpurohit Samdari from Maharashtra: Sir dadar Bikaner super fast express ko partidin(daily) chalaya jaye no.12489
(A weird yet important problem was discussed in the community ) by Bhushan Agarwal: Barauni junction india ka pahla aisa railway station hai jiska 1 no platform nahi hai.Plateform ki ginti 2 se suru hoti .
