Rs. 17 Lakh Collected After Ticket-Checking Drive At Old Delhi Station

NEW DELHI:  The Delhi Division of Northern Railway conducted a ticket-checking drive today, collecting penalties amounting to more than Rs. 17.17 lakh, a statement from the zonal railway said.

“The Delhi division has constantly been endeavouring to increase passenger revenue. A major reason for leakage in the railway revenue is ticket-less travel. A ticket-less passenger not only causes loss to railways, but also infringes upon the rights of passengers travelling on proper ticket,” it said.

During the ticket-checking drive, 3,843 cases of ticket-less travel, unbooked luggage, irregular ticket were detected and penalty amounting to Rs. 17.17 lakh was realised, it said.
