  1. These timetables are never published on time, even if published – not available on time!

    Besides, the announcement of the salient features is never done on time! For example, South Central Railway’s press release was not available on their website till 1st July. What does all this mean? Should we know the changes after they are effected or before-hand? Looks very awkward!
