As per the latest rules of Indian railways, people cannot travel on waiting ticket. Manmohan Gupta, president of Gandhi Vichar Manch located in Malad (West) in Mumbai, says that he is thankful to the railways for the same. The move will bring comfort to confirmed ticket holders.
“The administration should be thanked for the move. After creation of reservation chart, people travel sitting on the floor. Population has grown so much and government should address this by creating new rail lines. Waiting ticket when cancelled is charged too. Why issue waiting tickets at all? Tatkal tickets benefit agents and not people. It should also be stopped. Confirmed ticket holders can travel comfortably,” Manmohan Gupta adds.
