Indian Railway Emergency Quota: Getting a confirmed ticket for railway reservation in India is nothing short of a miracle. The disappointment of those getting waiting tickets is also understandable. In such a situation, there is no need to be surprised if a common man asks to confirm the ticket from the VIP quota on the train to go to his home. Because he knows that the emergency quota is one of the many facilities of railways. Which is also called the VIP quota of the common man.
What is this VIP quota?
Despite the long waiting list, the tickets of many passengers have finally been confirmed. Do you know how this happens? What is the logic behind this? What is VIP or Emergency Quota (EQ) Quota? On whose recommendation this quota is issued? I’ll tell you the Emergency quota in the railway lexicon is the reserved quota left over from the Railway Headquarters. However, it was made for those officers and personnel of the Railway Department who have to travel in case of emergency. However, later the country’s ministers, MPs, MLAs, judicial officers, civil service officers were also added to it. If these celebrities travel on their own, they can request a seat or berth from this quota. Not only this, but these special people also request their subordinates and relatives. MPs and MLAs also make requests for the people of their area.
How is the ticket confirmed?
If someone made a reservation in the third AC of an express train to go from New Delhi to Kolkata and he gets the 70th number on the waiting list. If there is a train for the next day and it is also necessary to leave, then he will have to contact someone who can get his ticket confirmed through the EQ quota. Once the request for EQ is filed, he has to wait till the finalization of the chart which is prepared a few hours before the departure of the train. After the release of this chart, that person will see a CNF (Verified) status next to their name. That is, in the event of the emergency quota being confirmed, that person can sleep comfortably through rail travel and go to his home.
Usually, only the MP or MLA of a district requests this quota. He writes letters to the people of his area to issue EQs from the Ministry of Railways. So such people who keep in touch with the MP of their village home, in case of emergency traveling they first cut their waiting ticket and then get a letter made by the MP to confirm their ticket. As soon as this letter reaches the Railway Board, their work is done.
How much quota in which train?
According to railway officials, how many EQ quota seats are there in a train. It has no fixed limit. This quota is decided on the basis of the class of the train, the expected rush in it, and the requests received for EQ.
