Curbing Ticketless Travel - Inputs Needed

In the last 4 years, 45M ticketless travels happened in Indian Railways, resulting in a loss of approximately 2000 Crores over four years.

With this post, we would like to seek your inputs on innovative solutions that can be implemented to curb ticketless travel.

Please note that Railways has taken some new initiatives to make booking unreserved tickets easy like the android mobile app, etc.

Please share as specific solutions as possible. more

Suburban train tickets should be changed to smart card, touch less technology and through barricaded entry to the station. Also close able doors should be introduced in the trains. We should turn to technology and less manual intervention. Unless you do this, there is no way we can control ticketless travel, as those monitoring ticketless travel themselves turn corrupt. more  
Issuance of unreserved tickets other then station (outside station) with controlled entry on platform is best idea. more  
yes I agree with Mr. Chiranjib , only the passengers with tickets should be allowed to enter the platform.This way the rush with unneccessary people on the platform will be reduced. more  
More number of booking counters are to be provided in required locations. In JTBS counters, the fare collected in railway counter is to be collected. Extra one rupee commission to be given by the railway administration and it should not be collected from the public. Extra one rupee collection discourages passengers to get tickets from JTBS. In suburban section UTS facility is to be provided at all the stations. In Chennai suburban section, highly patronised stations like Putlur, Hindu College, Annanur and Nemilicheri are still operated by contractors. In these counters still pre printed tickets are given. This is be changed to UTS counter. more  
We have to to restrict the ticket-less passengers in the beginning to enter in the railway platform. Like Metro Railway we have to install gates with ticket scanner. After scanning the ticket only gate will open. more
