**************************************************************

the following cases.:�
(i) members of the public holding a certificate from the Station Master showing that their need is urgent;
(ii) Magistrates and other Government Officials belonging to the Civil and Railway Police, Posts and Telegraphs Department, Excise and Forest Departments, etc., whose duties render it necessary to travel by goods train: in such cases the railway administration may require the production of a certificate or other suitable evidence from them to establish the identity of Government Officials;
(iii) railway officers and staff holding passes authorizing them to travel in brake vans of goods trains; and
(iv) Government Officials belonging to other departments, in emergent cases, when traveling on duty.
(c) When permission to travel in brake vans of goods trains is granted in the cases referred to in (b) (i), (ii) and (iv) above, the passengers will be required to purchase first class tickets and also warned that the railway is relieved of all responsibility for any injury or damage that may be caused to them as a result thereof. Each of the passengers permitted to travel in the brake van of a goods train will execute an indemnity note, a specimen of which is given below�
(Specimen form of Indemnity Note)
"To
The President of India
In consideration of your having granted me special permission to travel from ............................... to.............................. in the brake van of the goods train No........................................of the ....................................... Railway, I do hereby undertake and agree that the President of India, his servants and agents shall be free from all responsibility and shall not be liable for any delay or for any injury including injury resulting in death or loss to me or to my property of any kind whatsoever either belonging to me and/or accompanying me however occasioned during the journey for which the special permission is granted.
I hereby undertake that I shall not interfere with or obstruct the Guard of the train in the performance of his duties and shall also obey all directions which the said Guard may give me. The stamp duty payable in respect of this instrument shall be borne by the Government.
Date................... Signature....................................................
Place................... Designation...................................................
Full Postal Address ......................................
Accepted
For and on behalf of the President of India
..............................................................
The indemnity note after execution will be submitted to the Station Master on duty at the station before commencing the journey who will accept it under his dated signature and keep it as record.
(d) On controlled sections, the Station Master must obtain permission of the Deputy Chief Controller before giving permission to any person to travel in the brake van of a goods train. On non-controlled sections the Station Master on duty may exercise his discretion and grant such permission where considered necessary. It should, however, be noted that permission to travel in the brake van of a goods train should be granted only in exceptional emergent circumstances and not as a matter of routine. Special permission may, in normal circumstances, be given only when no suitable passenger train is available.
(e) The number of persons permitted to travel in the brake van of goods train in addition to the Guard should not exceed five. Lady passengers and minors shall not be allowed to travel in the brake vans of goods or passenger trains. This, however, does not refer to cases of injured women being carried to a station for medical assistance.
Note.�In the case of Government Officials, railway administration may permit travel in brake van of goods train on recovery of fares lower than first class i.e. second class fares in accordance with any practice in force over that railway.
