The Central Railway (CR) has collected a record Rs 100.67 crore as fine from April to October under a special drive carried out by the commercial department.
According to a official, a major part of this is collected from ticket less travellers.
“The Central Railway registered a record ticket checking earnings of Rs 100.67 crore for the period April to October 2017 and credit for this goes to the intensive campaign against ticketless and irregular travellers launched by the commercial department,” said the official.
According to the sources, in this seven-month period, 19.82 lakh cases of ticketless or irregular travel and unbooked luggage were detected by the commercial staff as against 16.37 lakh cases during the same period last year.
An amount of Rs 100.67 crore was realised from them as fine against Rs 80.02 crore during last year, an increase of 25.81 percent in earnings, he added. The CR has been taking regular steps to provide better services to the rail users and to keep a continuous check on ticketless travel.
