News Entry# 131089  Travelling with pets in train cheap but complicated

GURGAON: Travelling with dogs by train is cheaper as compared to air travel, but it is quite complicated at the same time. Railways allows dog in first air conditioned class coaches of the train, otherwise dogs will be put in the brake van of the train along with luggage. However, despite permission to travel with your pet in the first class, if anyone objects to it, the pet will be put in the brake van irrespective of the fact the passenger has paid all the charges. Even if one decides to keep one's pets in the break van of the train, the owner will have to put the pet into a cage, make him wear a collar and a leash. Besides that, it will be the owner's responsibility to feed the dog during traveling. So, during long journey, as it is not possible for the owner to go and keep a...

tab on the pet, it becomes difficult for both the pet and the owner. Pets, especially dogs, who are accustomed to move freely in the house or sleep on sofas or beds do not like to be caged and so many pet owners do not prefer to carry their dogs by train. There are few trains which has in-built coop in the guard's coach of the train, where one can put his or her dog during travel. But the only hitch is that only one dog can be transported through this way as there is only one such coop in the train. Two dogs could be allowed, in case they belong to the same owner. Two dogs of two different owners are not allowed in this one coop as there are chances of fighting between them. A passenger who has decided to take the pet dog in break van or the coop is required to reach railway station well before in time and visit the cargo dispatch department, where charges according to weight of dog will be charged and name tag with other dispatch details written on a cardboard is put around dog's neck. The cost is quite cheap and it could be ascertained by the fact that for a dog weighing around 10kg, one will have shell out not more than Rs 100. Rules for conveyance of dogs through train (courtesy Indian railways) Dogs when carried in the break- van, air conditioned first class passenger compartments will be charged luggage rates on the basis of weights subject to a minimum charge of Rs10 per dog, but not allowed in air conditioned sleeper coaches, ac chair car coaches sleeper class and second class coaches. When carried in break-van (dog- box) 30 kg is allowed, for passengers compartments 60 kg Owners to provide collars and chains and make their own arrangements for food and water for the dog during the journey. A passenger travelling in first air condition class or first class may take a dog into the compartment only with the concurrence of fellow passengers on payment of charges If fellow passengers subsequently object to the dog remaining in the compartment, it will be removed to the guard's van, no refund being given. A woman travelling alone with children under 12 years of age in a first class compartment may take with her in the compartment one dog on payment of charges at the dog box rates, provided that if another woman enters the compartment, the dog can only be allowed to remain in the compartment with her consent.
