Manipulation and Cheating by Ticket Chekers

I witnessed a situation which shows how our Ticket Checkers at Railway Stations behave and Treat Poor People -
While Dropping my Uncle at Old Delhi Railway Station around 1st week of August, I observed 7-8 persons travelling from Bihar were caught and forced to pay Fine and Penalty - Reason - they were travelling from some station before Patne to Ghaziabad and paid Tkt fare of Rs.369.00 each, probably they could not visualize or were late to get off the train at GZBD and then got off at Delhi Station.
Their Crime was they travelled as without tkt from GZBD to Delhi - I confronted the TC and said be human , if they can buy a tkt of Rs. 369, they would not have paid any extra in this amount had they wanted to get down at Delhi, it is simply by mistake.
But it was Shameless they were forced to pay Rs.10. as Tkt + Rs.250. as fine - are we living in a civilized society OR these Govt officials are there to Trick , Cheat and Manipulate for the Revenue generation.
Railways will never come up if their staff has this attitude. They have no respect for Passengers.
These TTEs are given targets of such revenue collection and at the end of financial year, many of the Railways proudly declare their ranking in such type of collection. I think, at first instance, Railway authorities (may be TTEs, TCs or others) should be there to prevent entry of unauthorized people as well as helping passengers alighting at correct Railway Stations. Many of the time, passengers from general class of the trains are absolutely unable to alight at desired station either due to rush in the compartments and very less stoppage of the train. TTEs and TCs also target poor people carrying their genuine belongings like old TV, some toys etc. while they let passengers of 2nd AC or 1st AC carrying new new items like large TVs or Computers etc. more

Mr. Maheshwari , I really appreciate your compassionate feelings on the poor labourers from Patna.
I am not strengthening your signature campaign as the TTE has done his duty . High time we the travelers realize that the rules of the Railways be adhered to .

This forum has brought out so many violations performed by the TTE's collecting money and pocketing for allotting berths seats out of turn for passengers as a result the the legitimate is deprived of his chance .

If we raise a voice or campaign against this TTE for doing his duty diligently following the rules , that will demoralize even the few honest ones to turn corrupt . more

You are right absolutely. In those days you can extend your journey to the next station by paying an additional fare to the TTE while travelling without paying any fine. This facility might be extended to the deserving cases like this by amending the rule of the railways. We can request the Railways to revive this facility. more

Ticket checkers are heir to sell Railway tickets and not to serve passengers. So what is wrong. more

Will the TTE take same action if the passengers were some political big shots. I do not think any political goondas buy ticket and travel even if they travel by First class. more
