After the halt at KJM was withdrawn, this train now stops at BYPL (Baiyyappanahalli).
BYPL is also fairly good place to get down ~ convenient for people going to the eastern parts of the city, the Metro Station is also adjacent.

AT BZA, they don't have a particular platform. Really have wait for announcement. Could be any of platforms of 4-7. Just keep an ear open for announcement.

Maintains steady speed from HWH till the suburbs of Bangalore, but eventually gets stranded at any of the small stations of the city... Banaswadi, KR Puram, Everyday the station changes but the delay remains the same... during my trip the train got halted at KR Puram and took a good hour to get a clearance. Reached YPR at 18:00 Hr.

What a lame excuse...every time you come to a financial problem you become a burglar!!Tip is a thing which comes voluntarily not a forced one..Tip is not their bread and butter..I'm not against their job but I want the government to pay them handsomely so that they don't indulge in this kind of extortion of money(believe me they literally abusing persons giving them money below their claim).I hope you are a man of generous nature who use to tip tgem those green and red notes but I'm little pissed off by paying dynamic pricing and servicee charge tips to the government..Regarding lodging complaints I mean to cater the daily plight of those passengers who really felt irritated to these things..In my compartment 85% of the people around me were reluctant to pay those tips as they were also behind the same judgement.

Re# 2002143-3            Tags   Past Edits
I disagree because they have no rights to ask for tip. When we travel in Duronto/Randhani, the cost of food is included in the ticket so they have to provide the food to us. Moreover the quality of food provide is more or less substandard in majority of the trains (I am saying this by checking the comments given by many for rajdhani/duronto trains). Also, I read a message written on train not to give tip (don't remember in which train).
I go to hotel and generally put Rs. 10 as tip but waiters never complain so why should waiters in train complain.

Hahaha...are you out of ur mind!!! you are just promoting corruption on an open forum. Vendors are paid by Railways and they are not supposed to ask for any tip from passengers neither the passengers are supposed to pay any Tip and this is the rule and if anyone like you who defies it by paying a tip is just promoting Corruption and Malpractice and you are just branding this to publicize ur generosity!!! Have never heard such a lame argument like yours in my whole life.

Why you even paid Rs. 10? It's their duty to serve the passenger and for that they get a salary, they are not doing any kind of favour to us. You should have lodged the complaint regarding this issue in the Complaint Book of TTE and Pantry Car Manager. Reporting the Corruption is the duty of every responsible citizen.

I haven't paid a single rupee tip.Infact I was the reason for their hurling abuses..But I got support of my fellow passengers.I complained it in the complaint book but the pantry manager was missing..I even mentioned that In my complain..In order to bring the matter to more people I complained it in the website and twitter handle..You cant believe how rudely these hooligans are behaving with a solo lady and when we all united and started revolting they just left the scene.Actually due to some people promoting this tip culture the majority is suffering....

Absolutely agreed that - Tip is a thing which comes voluntarily not a forced one. So, DO NOT TIP them at all. I have said this before and I am now saying it again. "I want the government to pay them handsomely so that they don't indulge in this kind of extortion of money(believe me they literally abusing persons giving them money below their claim)" - GOVT? They are perhaps employees of a contractor and not GOVT directly.
"but I'm little pissed off by paying dynamic pricing and servicee charge tips to the government" - fight with case with the GOVT / RLY authorities not the waiters.

"I read a message written on train not to give tip" - So DO NOT GIVE TIPS. Does anyone force you?
"I go to hotel and generally put Rs. 10 as tip but waiters never complain so why should waiters in train complain" - Hotels on LAND are different. How about AIRLINES charging Rs.50 or more for a HALF LITRE water bottle in mid-AIR at about 35000 ft above earth? Similarly, how about waiters in trains asking for TIPS (asking , but not forcing) for a tip on trains that runs through forests, barren lands, etc?

you DO NOT WISH, DO NOT PAY - Simple - BUT I just said DO NOT ruin someone's life by escalating the case - just because he (waiter) has chosen to serve you as a waiter on a train.
If you have to fight for a cause - then look at your neighbourhood and you will find many causes, perhaps better than this one. All the best.

Hey dear, you said this - "promoting corruption on an open forum" - I am not promoting any corruption. If you choose, DO NOT PAY ANY TIP at ALL. All you guys have perhaps missed that line. DO NOT PAY - that is what I said. But - just to show off - if you wish to pay and pay Rs.10/- in 2016, you are just giving alms and not tipping. If you are that kind of a person WHO can actually pay TIPS - then, and ONLY then - I said - PAY handsomely. NOT that ONE MUST PAY. DO NOT PAY if you feel it is WRONG. DO NOT PAY. Its that SIMPLE.

YES. Agreed. Rs.10/- is meager. DO NOT PAY just to show off. IF you wish to TIP anyone, anywhere, Trains, bus, Restaurants, Hotels, TIP them handsomely. - Its simple - Do it with generosity or DO NOT do it at all. NO Questions asked. Cheers.

Hey, hey, hey, I am not promoting this TIPS culture, I have time and again said - DO NOT TIP at all. But if you choose to do so, then DO SO handsomely. And then, a BIG SHAME on this - "You cant believe how rudely these hooligans are behaving with a solo lady and when we all united and started revolting they just left the scene". - This is exactly where YOU kind of guys are doing nothing. Absolutely NOTHING on trains. Someone, talking rudely with a LADY co-passenger, and you LEFT this so called hooligan scot-free? SHAME ON YOU and your co passengers. YOU must have caught these guys who misbehaved with a lady and handed over them to the RPF. You are making a mess of TIPS on trains, when you could not complain about someone (or more) misbehaving with a LADY passenger. This is the problem in...

INDIA. People like you DO NOT act where and when necessary. But people like you keep ranting the same lines time and again. Shame on you that you let those so called hooligans were let off because you were more worried about the TIPs than that of the safety of a LADY co-passenger.

I do pity on you on certain things..first of all you don't konow how to join in a debate in an open forum..maybe that's the reason why you chose to call me "hey,hey,hey".I believe in giving respect to each and every person and hereby I said that some people tip others so that they can take undue rights from them or rather can ask them to bear their tantrums (I even saw people giving their stale tiffin box to wash and then tip them for 50/-) .. Secondly you are bounded by some social boundaries and I had my belief that I can think above these social statas like Gender,Class etc that's why I protested against the entire passengers of the compartment rather than solving the plight of a single lady..(though the lady was also strong enough to shield her own defense)..FYI we had lodged a complain in Hwh Grp...
more...
on tip of RPF and they asked us to give witness when they will take action in nabbing those...
Thirdly and most importantly try to think beyond certain boxes like Buying people by tipping handsomely..You live in Democratic country where an elected government collect taxes on behalf of you to pay that persons salary...Complaining is not taking his job away but to give or ratger teach him a lesson that Don't force someone for your benefit..Grow up and do some rational thinking because oneday when you give him a 500 note and he will say "sir diwali is near..itne se kya hota"

This ain't the US where tips are a mandatory part. Tipping is 'actively discouraged' by IR, then why do it. Infact, I applaud the OP for complaining to the DRM since they're already paid for doing their jobs[they are paid sufficient in the first place unlike the US whose custom you are trying to copy]. Tipping is an extremely im-perfect system and it had be good if it doesn't increase.

The problem is that many vendors, waiters, janitors & other train staff 'demand' tips as per their rates as if it's some kind of entitlements that they have right to. The fact is that tips are a Colonial Raj Era Hangover that isn't going from the psyche of people doing physical work in eatery joints, restaurants and Indian Trains (esp Prestigious trains). Just as Kolkata restaurants in Park Street and other Central locations need to shed their Raj Era arrogance, similarly many IR train staff people also need to shed off these Raj era habits.

Tips or "Baksish" in Hindi is something that is supposed to be given voluntarily to staffers so the giving person should decide the rates rather than the recipient 'demanding' the amount. Once a beggar gave me back a Rs. 2 Coin in my hand since he refused it. It's not his fault since many foreigners in New Market and other Central Kolkata locations have spoiled beggars by giving them alms of above Rs. 100/- ... :(

According to my recent travelling experience, this train runs at good speed from YPR to KGP. It's only after KGP that it's made to reach late at HWH due to EMU Trains being given first passage :-p
