A very handy information for all those who want to travel during the festival times.

In our country, the railway has a very vast network and it is offering a huge number of services to the passengers. Time to time, to cope up with the rush, it is introducing special trains. In spite of such a large number of trains, people have difficulties in getting a reservation, especially in the festival time or school vacation time.

There are two main reasons for it. One is the huge population of our country and the second is relatively lower fares in the railway. If we see the past data on inflation and the increase in prices of other services in comparison, the railway fares have not increased proportionately. Whatever be the considerations and compulsions for the Govt not to increase them is creating a difficulty for the genuine passengers as many people are making plans to go to places by train even for fun or a trivial thing and resulting in a huge crowd in them.

So even after introduction of the additional trains during the peak season we are not getting a reservation or place to sit.
