Vacation time of this summer season found a great rush for trains and train tickets affected normal journey with compromising in space, security and harmony. Every year vacation time is a rush time for city dwellers to reach their village and have some pleasant time. 0Some choose to leave their busy life and put themselves in tourist places to enjoy.

People from different parts of the country come to Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Thane to find jobs and lives. Thus summer season in the region witnesses a greater rush than anywhere else.

Panvel and Taloja are two important stations for Navi Mumbai dwellers, as both have greater connectivity to other major parts of the country. As the gateway to Konkan region, Panvel offers trains and better connectivity to south India. Taloja gives connectivity to north India and to other parts of the country. Both of these stations are congested, and witness long queues for train tickets during summer seasons. Due to the presence of MIDC (Taloja), RPF and CISF camps, Taloja with one reservation counter struggles. For many it is almost impossible to find a reserved ticket to travel during this season.

To take tatkal tickets people form queue even before 30 hours. To take tatkal tickets, people use to come with food, water and even a bed with them. Still many of them could not find a ticket and compelled to travel in congested local compartments. Even after all these difficulties, travelling in trains is hectic for even in a reserved ticket. People in waiting the list also board train and try to adjust in some areas, as they also posses one ticket. Women and children are the mist affected, as cases of molestation and indecency are increasing in railways.

Charan Yadav, a worker in Taloja MIDC, said ‘I was looking for a ticket to my home, Bihar, for 2 months. But the reservations are complete and no tickets are available for me. Now I’m trying to take a tatkal ticket for next day. I came here one day before counter starts. I came with a small bed sheet, food and enough water, as I have to stay here. Even after all these difficulties, I didn’t get one tatkal ticket. Now I decided to take a local compartment, but these compartments are fully packed and congested. Travelling is hectic here.
