Devotees suffer as Central Railway, Shirdi trust bicker


An apparent tiff between the Central Railway (CR) authorities and officials of the Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust, Shirdi, has cost devotees dearly. The passenger reservation system (PRS) centre, which was being operated from the temple premises, has been shut for over a month now. The centre had proved to be of great help for the devotees, as they could book tickets immediately after darshan.


CR sources claimed that the centre was shut after officials from both sides argued over a particular issue. “It has been over a month since the PRS centre allotted to us has been shut. They (trust) are giving us alternate accommodation, but at a distance from the temple,” said a senior CR official.


Even the alternative accommodation seems to be disputed. While the CR authorities claim that the building in which the new PRS centre has been proposed is more than 500 metres away from the temple, trust officials say that the structure is just 100 meters away.
