Railway minister Suresh Prabhu has asked people for suggestions to improve train services but thanks to an error your inputs won't reach him.

The BJP government is all set with its budget in February and to strengthen the railway budget and make sure amenities which people want be part of it, Suresh Prabhu had asked people to give their inputs on the Indian Railway's website under 'suggestion for rail budget 2015'. However, the link on the website is not working!

The idea was by clicking on this link any person can give any railway-related suggestions along with his name and contact number.  However, after typing in all the details, users are not able to submit the inputs because of an error.

Many Mumbai residents tried to put in their suggestions but faced this problem.

After the recent protest at Diva station over delay in train services, the railway minister had travelled in the local trains of Mumbai and spoke to people regarding the various issues they face while travelling. "We will figure long-term solutions for the less number of local trains in Mumbai compared to the high density of people. We will talk to commuters and will try and know their problems," Prabhu had said. However, the error has stopped any suggestions from coming in.

Prashant Dhanapgol, who uses Mumbai local train for his daily commute, said, "For years we wanted to make sure the government hears what people want and need. This time when I heard about this suggestion link I was really looking forward to write about my grievances and suggestion. I did try to put in my suggestions but couldn't. So much happened at Diva the other day. The Mumbai Central train comes late every day. Had thought of writing something about that. The 15-bogey train haven't yet come. Thought will write about it."

Railway officials in Mumbai refused to comment on this glitch and said the matter is under the jurisdiction of Delhi.
