Move to check travel on transferred tickets in trains

The Railway Board has changed the existing norms to prevent the increasing cases of travelling on transferred tickets. The new system will come into effect on February 15.

Currently, the passengers with Tatkal ticket and e-ticket are to carry original proof of identity during the course of rail journey.

The move will help prevent cases of travelling on transferred tickets.

ID proofs

Now, the Railway Board has decided that any one of the passengers/the passenger booked on the tickets issued from computerised passenger reservation system and internet (i-ticket), undertaking journey in AC 3-tier, AC 2-tier, 1st AC, AC chair car and executive classes will also have to carry any one of the nine prescribed proofs of identity (in original) during the journey.

They should produce the same as and when required, failing which all the passengers booked on that ticket will be treated as without ticket and charged accordingly.
