Extra berth in sleeper coaches - In an effort to get more money, railways has decided to introduce a side middle berth in sleeper and 3 tier AC coaches. The problem is - where will the extra guy sit during the day time No problem, they have decided to squeeze him on the lower birth on the other side. That means 4 people on a seat which is barely sufficient for 3 people! So instead of increasing seating compacity and putting more compartments and trains, Indian Railways has decided to torture passengers. The upper berth is so close to the roof that the guy lying there can barely breath! Now here are some interesting things to note, In the new arrangement, 9 people will share a space which is suitable for 6 people. 3 tier arrangement itself was a torture. Where will the new guy put his luggage Already people fight with each other for luggage space is long distance trains. Earlier families with small children used to prefer side berths since it offered them some freedom/privacy especially when the child starts crying in the night. Railways seems to consider passengers also as some commodity to be transferred. I personally think that we are human being, and Indian railway shoud treat us as a human being instead of animal to fatch money. Hence we strongly appealing to all of you to protest against Extra Side Berth in coaches of Indian Railway by signing this online petition. For update visit to Group of Student
