CHENNAI: The Tamil Nadu Association for the Rights of All Types of Differently Abled and Caregivers (TARATDAC) has come down heavily on a recent Railway Board circular on the issuance of special identity card for e-ticket booking for the disabled.
The circular mandates disabled passengers to procure a separate railway identity card by submitting necessary documents to the respective Divisional Railway Managers (DRMs). The unique ID number would be necessary for disabled passengers to avail concession while booking e-tickets through IRCTC as well as physical tickets through counters.
"The conditions are impractical and would cause enormous hardship to the disabled. As per the conditions, the disabled have to submit applications with Sr Divisional Commercial Managers in the Divisional Railway Manager Offices," said TARATDAC secretary Namburajan, who is one of the activists

who campaigned for e-ticketing facility for the disabled. Currently, the facility of booking e-tickets is available only to those who have procured the special ID cards from Northern Railway. This will soon be extended to all zones.
A majority of disabled passengers live in locations which are far from the office of the DRM, Namburajan said. "A person living in Rameswaram would have to travel 170 km to Madurai city to submit the documents. This is not fair," he added. Though the circular mentions that the documents can be sent by post also, Namburajan contended that this would still be an added headache to those who may not be aware of the facility.
Railway officials pointed out that without a unique ID, it would not be possible for people to book e-tickets under the disabled quota. However, Namburajan said it was discriminatory in nature. "Senior citizens don't have to get a separate railway ID card to prove that they are aged above 60. Why should the disabled be discriminated against? We already have a disability certificate," he reasoned.
Further, the association demanded the circular be withdrawn. It also demanded extension of the procedures that are in practice to senior citizens and children for online booking.

"They would not allow us to pick or drop passengers from the platform no 1 side, thereby resulting even in some cancellations. We have officially taken permission from railways for operating the kiosk but still we have to face such hassles from the auto union that is creating problems," said Khan.

Despite regular checks and imposition of fines on ticketless passengers, ticketless travelling is still rife in Tiruchi Railway Division.
A large number of cases booked against ticketless travellers at different places in the division this year and last year point to the continuance of the offence. In fact, there has been a spurt in the number of ticketless travel cases booked this fiscal compared to last year in the Tiruchi division that encompasses over 10 revenue districts in Tamil Nadu and Union Territory of Puducherry.
In the last 11 months (April to February), the Commercial Department of the Tiruchi Railway Division had booked 69,203 ticketless travel cases and had realised a fine of Rs. 3.38 crore. This was higher than the number of cases booked in 2013-14 fiscal when 63,501 cases were

INDORE: Findng a toilet at railway station is no mean task. There are only two toilets on two extreme ends of Indore railway station. Almost 15,000 passengers, 30 trains navigate five platforms of the station. The need for more toilets has been brought to the notice of senior officials but in vain.
"Officials have created VIP rooms and lounges and are soon going to construct escalators while continuing talk about other big projects; but they have failed to provide a decent public toilet for passengers. Authorities should come up with more number of pay-and-use toilets at platforms," said president of Indore-Ujjain Passenger Association, Praveen Mehendale. Only two platforms; 4 and 5, have the toilet facility.
Ravi Kriplani, a frequent traveler, said, "I arrive early many times but I hardly ever

find a place to freshen up. There is not a single public toilet on platforms 3 and 4 from where I can catch my train".
Admitting that there weren't enough toilets, station manager Rajvir Gopinathan said, "We have chalked out plans for pay-and-use toilets inside railway station".
