WR COLLECTS ₹ 94.51 CRORE AS FINE DURING INTENSIVE TICKET CHECKING DRIVES DURING APRIL TO OCTOBER 2023

An increase of about 87% in terms of fine generated from intensive checking in AC local trains

WR urges to travel with valid ticket

           In order to ensure hassle-free, comfortable travel & better services to all bonafide passengers over Western Railway, intensive ticketchecking drives are being carried out continuously over  Mumbai suburban local services, Mail/Express as well as passenger trains & holiday special trains so as to curb the menace of ticketless/irregular passengers. The highly motivated ticketchecking team under the supervision of senior commercial officers of Western Railway organized several ticketchecking drives during the months from April to October 2023, thereby recovering an amount to the tune of Rs. 94.51 Crore, which also includes Rs.24.38 Cr from Mumbai Suburban section.

 

            According to a press release issued by Shri Sumit Thakur – Chief Public Relations Officer of Western Railway, during the month of October 2023, an amount of Rs.13.32 crore was recovered through detection of 2.17 lakh ticketless/irregular passengers, including unbooked luggage cases. Also, in the month of October, WR realized fines amounting to Rs.3.64 crore through detection of over 77,000 cases over Mumbai Suburban section. To prevent unauthorized entry in AC local trains, frequent surprise ticket checking drives are carried out. As a result of these drives around 41500 unauthorized passengers have been penalized during the period April to October 2023 and Rs. 136.74 lakhs collected in fines, which is about 86.73% higher than the same period of last year.

Western Railway appeals to the general public to travel with proper and valid tickets.
