  1. If Indian railways are extending the advance reservation from 90 to 120 days. It will force people to prefer more Tatkal Reservation because no one has got a long term plan exceeding 3 months.

    This will help only Indian railways increase their earnings coz. more extra money they would get on Tatkal tickets reservation.

    Every single ticket would carry an extra 200 INR on every ticket and suppose 2 persons travelling to-and-fro will end up paying 800 rupees extra on return journey.

    Not fair, government is trying to squeeze every single penny from the poor Indian citizen's pocket.

    1. I DO AGREE WITH Seenu. We should abolish Tatkal system. Now a days it has become impossible to take Tatkal ticket. We have to be in queue for more than 5 hours in advance to avail the ticket and thats also not sure whether we will get it or not. Also the advance reservation needs to be reduced to 60 days from current 120 days and should allow waiting list only upto that point which can be accommodated easily.
