Indian Railways

• Basic information and tips

  1. Reach on time:- Indian Railways has a huge network and hence weather you are traveling from the first station or boarding in between. The train might change its track and platform due to rush. In this situation if you are reach 5-10 minutes before time then you can miss your train. You must reach the station atleast 60 minutes before. Now even government has announced to reach 90 minutes before due to the safety measures of the current pandemic.
  2. Allotment of seat: While booking your seat in Indian Railways you get an opportunity to choose your seat. If you are travelling alone and don’t want to interrupt with others then you should select upper birth as it’s such a seat which won’t disturb you. On the same side family and a person is alone who loves to interact then you can choose any seat as you want. For couples and nature lovers side lower and side upper is the best.
  3. Food: If you are travelling on a long route then it is preferable to carry fruits, snacks and other light food as at some stations don’t have food stalls at proper place and the trains also hault for a lesser part of time. On the other hand some trains may not have pantry car as well. Also various times we have heard of bad quality food being served as well. One can also order food from IRCTC website which will give you pure quantity and quality food on whichever station you need. Also government has recently announced “No Bill No Payment” which means any thing you purchase from any of the vendors a bill has to be taken. If the vendor refuses to give the bill then you can take the material required for free.
  4. Water: Water is an necessity during travelling and hence it is always preferable to purchase water whenever needed. Water is easily available from any of the vendors. Water is available at a minimum cost of 15/- only. Indian Railways provides water of Rail Neer by IRCTC which is the safest. Other option is Bisleri which the whole country preferes.
  5. Lock: Before departing for the journey one must always carry a sangli-tala which is purchased from nearest shop of residence and at night time one must lock it with the handle available below your seat to protect it from robbery
  6. Take help of employees: During the journey it is advisable to have a talk with the ticket checker or a team of RPF so that it is easy to find help when needed. A member of RPF is mostly found at the end of the coach. They also help you to wake you up incase your destination arrives at midnight or early morning.
  7. Travelling manners: It is advisable not to stand on the doors or stick to the windows as it may lead to heavy injuries if train faces an accident. Sitting or lying in middle of a seat is the safest. Incase if anyone is making vlog then also keep safe distance.
