Railway Train Ticket Rules: Now passengers can travel without ticket in case of emergency?, know the rules ​

Traveling by train without a ticket is a crime. Doing so can result in fine, jail or both. But, sometimes in case of emergency or compulsion, if you travel without a ticket, then as per the rules, you can get the ticket made in the train itself. Let us know how?

In India, about 2.5 crore people travel by trains every day. It is legally mandatory to buy a ticket to travel by train. In fact, before the journey, when the train is about to leave and the queues at the ticket counter are long, people are not able to buy tickets. In such situations, people board trains without tickets and face problems if caught.

Now if this happens to you then there is no need to panic. National Crime Investigation Bureau has shared some special rules related to Indian Railways on its Twitter handle so that passengers do not face any problem in travelling.

Always board the train with a ticket, but if in some circumstances you are not able to buy the ticket, then there is no need to worry. Because, under the new rules, Railways has also started the facility of giving tickets inside the train. In this, passengers without tickets can contact TTE and get tickets.

Remember that after catching the train, you should contact the TTE yourself and inform them about your situation, in such a situation, as per the rules of Indian Railways, you can get your ticket made from the TTE only. Under this facility, a hand held machine was given to the TTE. With the help of which TTE will give tickets to the passengers inside the train itself. Remember, if you do not have a reservation ticket, you have to pay a fine of Rs 250 and the fare from where you boarded the train to the destination.

This hand held machine connects to the server of the Railway Passenger Reservation System. As soon as the passenger asks for the ticket, the ticket will come out as soon as the name and place are entered in the machine. With the help of the machine, information about vacant berths in the train can also be easily obtained.

If the waiting list of any passenger has not been cleared, then he can go to the TTE and show his ticket and get the information about the vacant seat and get it confirmed, if the seats are vacant or if no passenger has come on any seat.

You can also download UTS App on your phone, which is the official ticketing app of Indian Railways, through this app you can book platform tickets and unreserved tickets.

Let us tell you that Indian Railways issues new rules from time to time for the convenience of passengers. Apart from this, the facilities provided to passengers in trains are continuously increasing.
