Inputs on Penalty for not carrying identification

It has been observed that identification requirement of only one person on a ticket is leading to agent/tout misuse. Tickets are booked in advance by the agents with one of their individuals (who accompanies the travelers) and random names.

As a result, we have decided to make carrying identification in journey mandatory for all passengers on a ticket. We are yet to decide on the penalty that will be imposed if some one is found without an identification.

We seek your inputs on the same so there is a strong incentive for everyone to carry their id, there is little room for TTE discretion and at the same time such ticketing misuse is put to a stop, making more tickets available to the genuine passengers trying to follow the defined process.

We look forward to your inputs and if there are any alternate solutions you might have. more

There should be some exceptions. A family travelling on a ticket should be given some relief if senior members have their identity with them. Not everyone should be required to carry identity card below the age of 12 years if travelling in group with seniors. Passengers with family should be given some concession in respect of Identity. IInd reserve sleeper coaches have another problem as some families take extra passenger on general ticket in reserved coach this creates discomfort and inconvenience to other fellow passengers. These extra passenger occupy upper births as well as seats. A lower berth is meant to seat 3 passengers during day time but some times upto 5 persons occupy one lower berth which is annoying and uncomfortable also. more  
Penalty for carrying identification is to treat passenger without tickets. No berth/seat is to be provided to such passengers even after payment of penalty. After recovering penalty passenger should be travel in unreserved coach. Reserve berth/seat is to be allotted to other wait listed passenger.
Some time it is felt that ticket agents, tout are have arrangement with TTE for allowing such passengers. TTE exceptional power should be stringent and sought proper justification from TTE. Recurring such transaction should be viewed seriously and justification should be sought. Though this is a mercy less arrangement but it is required for keeping away mall practices by tickets agent/touts. more  
Hello Sir,
