Tout Issues - Follow on Inputs Sought

The facility for current reservation through internet and in all reservation counters upto 30 mts prior to dep recently introduced will definetly reduce to maximum extent the corruption of ttes and touts. Reducing the quota for tatkal in SL class which is normally around 200 to 250 will be helpful in reducing touts blocking the tickets. Already efforts have been taken by railways by insisting ID card for all class for all type of reservations. more

The ticket booking agents are to be compelled to use equipment supplied by Railways only. They should be checked by inspectors periodically and erratic and fraudulent agents are to be heavily fined and all their ticket income has to be confiscated and they are to be blackmarked by publishing their photos in news papers. In deserving cases, they should be iput under rigorous imprisonment. more
