April 6: The answer to why it’s so difficult to secure confirmed tickets on Indian Railways is the country’s large population, which means there are more individuals looking for fewer seat vacancies. India is the world’s second most populous country, and it will shortly pass China to become the world’s largest. Because resources never expand in such a geometrical form, when such a huge population searches for a limited number of seats, there is guaranteed to be a shortage of seat berths.
Then there’s the festive season, when the problem of seat unavailability is at its peak. Many people around the country order tickets at the same time, resulting in the First-come, First-served phenomena. Indian Railways’ lack of modern infrastructure limits train speed, which in turn limits the number of trains that can travel the same route. All of this results in fewer trains running between two railway stations, resulting in fewer seats available for booking by a small number of passengers.
