Pune, 4th September 2023: In a resolute crackdown on ticketless travel, the Pune Railway Division has managed to apprehend a staggering 19,101 individuals in the month of August 2023. These commuters, attempting to ride the rails without valid tickets, now find themselves lighter in the pocket by a staggering sum of Rs 1 crore 43 lakh 56 thousand, as fines were diligently collected from them.

But it doesn’t stop there. An additional 9,149 passengers faced penalties, amounting to Rs 51 lakh 45 thousand, for traveling irregularly and without proper tickets. For those attempting to sneak their luggage onboard without the necessary booking, 234 individuals were met with fines totaling Rs 26 thousand.

This commendable action was conducted under the guidance of Divisional Railway Manager Indu Dubey. The synchronicity of efforts by Additional Divisional Railway Manager Brijesh Kumar Singh and Senior Divisional Commercial Manager Milind Hirve, under the astute leadership of Divisional Commercial Manager Ramdas Bhise, played a pivotal role in this accomplishment. This coordinated endeavor involved dedicated ticket checking inspectors and the vigilant Railway Protection Force (RPF).

The Pune Railway Division continues its unwavering commitment to conducting regular ticket checks, ensuring the fair and lawful use of railway services. Passengers are earnestly urged to abide by the rules and travel with valid tickets.

Non-compliance not only entails financial penalties under the Railway Act but may also lead to legal repercussions, including the possibility of imprisonment.
