Press Release: MASSIVE TICKET CHECKING DRIVE YIELDS SIGNIFICANT RESULTS IN ASANSOL DIVISION

MASSIVE TICKET CHECKING DRIVE YIELDS SIGNIFICANT RESULTS IN ASANSOL DIVISION

Kolkata, July 3, 2024


The Eastern Railway's Asansol Division has conducted an extensive ticket checking drive over the past 10 days, resulting in a remarkable response from commuters. This drive, which included Magistrate checks, fortress checking, and special ticket checking trains at various locations within the division, has been widely welcomed by bonafide passengers. The initiative has contributed to maintaining the comfort and dignity of passengers o­n board.

During the period from June 21 to June 30, 2024, a total of 11,601 cases of ticketless travel and unbooked luggage were detected over Asansol Division. This resulted in the recovery of ₹47,86,065/- from offenders as fare and fines. The success of this drive underscores Eastern Railway's commitment to ensuring that all passengers travel with valid tickets and properly booked luggage.

Eastern Railway aims to transform social behaviour regarding ticketless travel through such drives, encouraging passengers to travel with dignity and adherence to the rules. In addition to these enforcement measures, Eastern Railway regularly conducts awareness campaigns to educate passengers about the importance of traveling with a valid journey ticket and properly booking their luggage to avoid penalties.

This continuous effort by Eastern Railway ensures a better travel experience for all passengers and reinforces the message that traveling without a proper ticket is both unacceptable and penalizable.
