Railways Have Collected Over Rs 100 Crores In 7 Months As Fines From Ticketless Travel


Central Railways has collected around Rs 100.67 crores as fine from ticketless travellers from April to October. These digits were reflected after a drive was carried by the commercial department.

“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.
