What We Offer

Generally, in long distance passenger trains with multiple stops, passengers can use the train for travelling between any station pair. If the same seat can be utilized for multiple bookings, that increases the utilization. For this purpose, inventory of seats/ berths is divided between different station quotas. Improper quota allocation results in passenger being turned down while seats remain vacant.

In Indian Railways, there are many trains in which there is a clear mismatch between quota allocation and demand for tickets between station pairs. Hence a lot of potential commuters do not get confirmed tickets and have to opt for other modes of transportation. We expect an improvement between 2-3 % of revenue. The reserved passenger revenue is more than Rs 50,000 Crore hence we can expect the revenue increase more than Rs. 1000 Crore.
