An individual wrote, "Need big reforms for general coaches."

A second commented, "The government Must do something on this front also. Either increase train coaches/capacity or strictly prevent unauthorized individuals from entering reserved coaches."

"Not enough trains, so many vande Bharat were introduced, but the cost is out of reach for the common man. They have not introduced the passenger trains where heavy traffic exists," posted a third.

A fourth shared, "Railways should allow only passengers with confirmed tickets to be on the platforms to stop this nuisance."

A fifth said, "Railways is busy with making the bullet train & vande bharat. They don't want to waste their time resolving the issue of middle-class people travelling on the existing trains."
