Do the Rajdhani Expresses also have 4 berth Coupes' in the 1A class? I'm specifically looking to travel in the Trivandrum - Delhi Rajdhani and was wondering if they had 4 berth coupes' as I would really like to get one with only 2 berths, for the privacy!

I'm starting from Shoranur and heading upto Madgoan.

In that case, there would be 2 other passengers to disturb your privacy!

PS:- Every 1AC has either 2 berth coupe or 4 berth cabin. Coupe/Cabin allocation is done during charting and is highly subjected to VIP movement and berth allocation is again subjected to the same along with age preference.

Also in addition to the above, I think, preference may be given to passengers travelling from start point to end point.

Kind of. However this journey leg of SRR-NZM wud be in GNWL and can be given equal preferencr to TVC-NZM.(Diff of fare for 1AC is also very less; around 320-330 Rs.)

No worries dipyamanbasu. This mistake normally happens. I myself have done it a couple of times.

If you are the early bird to book then i suppose you my get your desired coupe. Depending upon the availability.
I dont know that 2 berth coupe is reserved, not available for the general booking.
I have traveled in the 2 berth coupe but not in the Rajdhani's one. I got it booked and was given confirmed reservation of the same, that is 2 berth coupe without any problem. The boogie had only one 2 berth coupe and the rest were 4 berth coupe.

If I recall correctly, for travel on Rajdhani, you have to either board at the originating station or depart at the destination station. Let us take the example of Delhi-Trivandrum Rajdhani:

Originating station: Hazrat Nizamuddin
Destination station: Trivandrum.

Let us take Madgaon on the way where there is a stop.

You can travel Hazrat Nizamuddin to Madgaon or Madgaon to Trivandrum.

Let us take another intermediate station - Vadodara (Baroda).

On the Delhi-Trivandrum Rajdhani you cannot travel from Vadodara to Madgaon.

Steven-ber, VSP and others that are more knowledgeable than me can correct me.

Cheers

Highly unlikely that you will get the 2 berth coupe. One neither are boarding at the Origin nor travelling till the end neither a major part of the trains journey. This train will almost certainly have MP's + spouse from Kerala travelling and getting the coupe will indeed be a coup if you do manage it.

Best to try in other non rajdhani trains.

This is not 100% correct. The general trend of Rajdhani is where one of the stations has to be either originating or terminating station of the train. But there are always exception in IR.

Hey Nattusbs,
vsp27759 is correct, i have traveled and boarded at intermediate stations in Rajdhani.
As far as i know Indian politicians dont prefer to travel by trains, whether it is Shatabdi or Rajdhani. If they at all then it is once in a blue moon, a rare phenomena. They have business class and government of India pays for their fare.
If one books early they every chances of getting 2 berth coupe.

Unhappy Wanna book ticket from Vadodara to Madgaon

Hi All,

I tried to book online ticket from Vadodara to Madgaon in Trivendrum Rajdhani but it only shows "Not Available" for all the future dates. I have read the above posts and got to know that one cannot book intermediate station tickets in Trivendrum Rajdhani. So what to do?

Whether only way possible is to book ticket from originating station (Nizamuddin Delhi) to Madgaon and pay around Rs.900 extra per head for 3AC?

Pl advise
