Whatever the festival, Onam, Diwali Or Christmas? 24 hours Online reservation is not possible with KSRTC.
The website “Saarathi” (Online reservation portal) has come up with a banner that “Due to heavy traffic, Reservation to the public is now available between 10 PM and 9 AM only. Booking at KSRTC counters are available as usual.”
We have reported the same problem in August (Read Here) during the time of Onam. This time, it is happening from last five days and still the problem is not solved. This shows the strength and reliability of the server supporting all these websites.
The Online booking facility is really a good advantage for office going peoples, IT Professionals etc. Because they don’t need to go to booking counters for checking the availability of seats or booking the tickets. Online reservation is basically aimed to help people who have no time to wait and take tickets from a counter. Its meant to help the people not to create inconvenience.
Evening 10pm to morning 9 is totally crazy. Doubt whether this is aimed to help KSRTC or drive people away from it. The whole site itself is a mess and people still go for it because they have no alternative. Inspite of all the disadvantages if still they keep pestering public with such baseless rules people will switch over to other alternatives.
Here is a complaint which we have received by email. Shanavas, a regular passenger of KSRTC is telling that, “In this Diwali festive season, don’t you feel shame to say that the site is down? Is there any other public service site (leave alone private firms and services) down like this at this time? As the old malayalam saying Kaattile thadi thevarude aana?? is that how you are running this service? There should be some extend of courtesy and thankfulness to the food you eat. The money you earn from the company without doing the work properly.
Privatize KSRTC let me see whether you people know how to work.”

Bibeesh Baby is telling that “Online booking site is down for many dyas.If any if the festival season comes then only we need the reservation.At that time the site will always down.Then what is the use of online reservation.”
