Great Mr. DSilva!!
I do not have official data (and hence officially my observation is baseless) but all we know how the passengers are being cheated at the windows and are not given benefit of IR rules in many cases.
You have done a good job by re-reverting back to the Clerk and he understood that you could not be fooled further.
He would
think thrice before cheating passengers but I know that helpless / unaware passengers will further make him strong to cheat.
Thanks! (not only for your efforts but also for coming back here and share with all of us.)

I googled and found this in a link articlesbase.com:
Even though the title includes birds, the article does not say any thing about the birds. I will try to get more info and post it

The owners of the Dogs when taken in the break-van or A.C.C. and first class passenger section will have to pay at Scale 'L'(luggage Rates)on the basis of heaviness indicated below, with a smallest amount of Rs.10/- for each dog, all the money is prepaid. All the dogs must be taken with collars and strings to tie them. The owner of the dog should make his personal arrangement for food and water for the dog throughout the trip. Dogs discovered without booking will be penalized and charged 6 times more than the Luggage level Rate which could be to a least amount of Rs.50/-
A person who is travelling in Ac First class or ordinary first class can take the dog with them only if the fellow passangers agree to that and that too after making the requirement payment. If co- passengers afterward have an objection regarding the dog being in the compartment, it will be taken to the Guard's van and no compensation would be given. Dogs which are not booked with the passenger in IAC and Ist class compartments will be penalized six times the baggage scale Rate which could be subject to a minimum of 50. A lady traveling unaccompanied with kids below 12 years of age in a first class compartment may carry with her in the compartment one dog on paying the price of that at the Dog Box Rates that is a minimum of 10 Rs and this facility is only if the fellow passenger does not have any objection.Any dog identified unreserved will be penalised at two times the dog-box rate for the distance up to the end of discovery and at the dog-box rate for the distance further than the whole charge being subject to a minimum of Rs.20/- for very dog.
The travelers are not supposed to carry the Dogs in ACC Sleeper Coaches, Acc chair car coaches sleeper class and AC two tier.If a dog is found being carried and breaking this rule, it will be thrown out immediately or taken to the brake-van and charges will be charged six times the baggage Scale Rate subject to a minimum of Rs.50/-
Big dogs that cannot be carried in the dog-box of a brake van will be taken in a exceptional motor vehicle at the similar rates and situations as for horses.
