Jamshedpur: Passengers of Jamshedpur and other places are facing much difficulty in getting tickets booked for Rajendra Nagar-Durg South Bihra Express from Tatanagar station for the last seven months due to closure of Tatkal booking facility.
Sources said the quota of Tatanagar has been given to Rajgangpur railway station. As a result, passengers are unable to get tickets. They are being compelled to spend Rs 25-30 more to get confirmed seats. Earlier, a quota of more than 40 seats had been given to Rourkela railway station in sleeper class.
This led many passengers to get their tickets confirmed from Rajgangpur and Rourkela before boarding the train at Tatanagar railway station.
Passengers are also not getting current tickets for Howrah-Mumbai and New Delhi bound trains passing Tatanagar railway station at night.
Passengers of Azad Hind, Mumbai Mail, Ahmedabad, Hatia Sambleshwari and Hapa are facing this problem.
