Special drives against ticketless travellers by N. F. Railway, Yielded more than Rs 62.98 crores towards fare and penalty during last FY

N. F. Railway conducts regular intensive ticket checking drives to keep a check against ticketless and irregular travel. Such drives are conducted to discourage without ticket travelling, which leads to trouble for genuine passengers. During the month of April, 2023, such drives lead to recovering an amount of more than Rs. 4.81 crores from ticketless travellers.

During the period from April, 2022 to March, 2023, 778808 numbers of cases of without ticket/irregular ticket passengers were detected and an amount of Rs. 62.98 crores was realized as excess fare and penalty. Altogether it is 73.68% higher in terms of number of penalty cases and 169.56% higher in terms of penalty earnings compared to same period of previous year.

Travelling without proper ticket or beyond authorised distance may lead to levy of excess charge and fare. In case a passenger fails or refuses to pay the same o­n demand, he shall be in default of payment and will be prosecuted under relevant sections of The Railways Act, 1989.

N. F. Railway appeals to the general public to travel with proper & valid tickets and carry valid Identity cards in order to avoid inconvenience. Now passengers can purchase unreserved tickets from o­ne part of the country to another through Unreserved Ticketing System (UTS) mobile application o­n their smart phones. The UTS application can be downloaded from both android & apple app-store.
