Railway's new food policy, what about travel policy?

Railways Minister unveiled a new food catering policy for providing hygienic food at increased prices and to the satisfaction of passengers.  A toll-free phone number (1800111321) has been created to take complaints.

Apart from the Railways and the IRCTC, there are about 232 licensed contractors engaged in the Rs. 2,000-crore business. There will be a sea change in the supply of food by May end. Prices are set to be revised.

All these sea changes are okay. But, railways urgently need to scale up the capacity, at least a river change, for online ticket booking (especially Tatkal) facility. Add extra bogies or instantiate supplementary trains, if waiting list crosses 200 well before the scheduled date.
