Indian Railways intend to present these kinds of trains on the courses which have weighty traveler traffic
Indian Railways in an offer to give help to the waitlisted travelers may run a unique ‘clone train’ in the courses which for the most part has high traveler traffic.
At a media instructions, the railroad board administrator VK Yadav said, “Railways will screen all the trains that are as of now inactivity to figure out which trains have a long holding up list.
“Any place there is an interest for a specific train, any place the holding up list is long, we will run a clone train in front of the genuine train, so travelers can travel,” he said.
VK Yadav said the stoppages of the clone trains will be not exactly the extraordinary trains. “The thought is to have stoppages at significant stations for clone trains to fulfill needs of individuals,” he said.
What is a clone train?
A clone train can’t avoid being a train which will be running with a similar number like the genuine train. For instance, the 12423/12424 New Delhi-Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express has all the seats got saved and still has a hefty interest of waitlisted travelers.
So all things considered, Indian Railways will put another rake of the Rajdhani Express with a similar number just to convey waitlisted ticket-holders.
Also, the waitlisted travelers will be educated about their billets in the clone train not long after the booking graphs for the first planned trains are drawn up four hours before the flight.
Difficulties
Notwithstanding, it will be a strategic test for the Railways as it will require extra rakes for running the clone train. Indian Railways will attempt to run these kinds of trains from significant urban communities at first where there are extra rakes.
Additionally, Indian Railways will need to update its Passenger Reservation System(PRS). At present Indian Railways impairs appointments of the train ticket after a sitting tight rundown for a train contacts 400 in sleeper class, 300 in 3AC or seat vehicle, 30 in top-notch, and 100 in inferior.
Vikalp Scheme
Indian Railways is now running the ‘Vikalp Scheme’ where the travelers are offered the decision to book the ticket in a substitute train if their waitlisted tickets don’t get affirmed on the train they had selected. Anyway a significant disadvantage of the ‘Vikalp Scheme’ is that the voyaging season of the traveler may increment in the event that he/she is given a reservation on another train.
