Hi,

Today I booked a ticket from Tuni to Hyderbad in Visaka. I gave LB as my choice, even though I know they don't consider it

My booking details are :
PNR Number 622-4355328
S.No. Train# Train Name Date (DD-MM-YYYY) From To Class
1 7015 VISAKHA 22- 2-2009 TUNI SC SL
S. No. Booking Status(Coach No , Berth No., Quota) Current Status
1 S7 , 71 ,GN Confirmed
Charting Status CHART NOT PREPARED.

How can I find which berth I am allocated to. .so that if it is Side middle or Side Upper I can cancel the ticket as the new berth system is disgusting. I suffered a lot in my last travel.

I found a poll in IndianRail.gov.in, about this new system. But it is asking PNR Number also , I trashed the ticket (its not E-ticket).

S7-71 will be side middle berth in 9 berth compartment system.
If you are lucky & if coach having 8 berth compartment system then S7-71 will be side lower berth .

Hey thanks for the info. I am sure that I am unlucky , as the train is Viskha, there will be definately 3rd berth (as they inroduced side middle to all major trains). I need to check for alternative

They also said that side middle berths shouldn't be used any more, but they've still been used in about 30% of the journeys I've had in the last few weeks.

Please look at this thread, even if you are not in India.: Have you seen Jonathan Spollen?

He could be anywhere now: You might have met him, be able to help, or give information.

Hey Thanks for the info once again. I am very lucky . I got Side Lower. Seems they cancelled all side middle berths (at least in 22nd Visakha ).

Dear Aditya,

They have NOT cancelled the SMBs, but on 22nd S7-must be a 72-berths Coach. Hence, you got SLB. Otherwise, you would have got SMB!!!
