If you’re travelling by the Mumbai-Goa Tejas Express anytime soon, don’t forget to carry your own earphones if you want to watch movies or listen to music on the infotainment screen. Or else, you will have to shell out Rs30 for a pair that you will be allowed to then take home.
The railway’s move to charge passengers for earphones comes after several pairs went missing or were found damaged during the train’s first few trips.
A spokesperson from the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), an undertaking of Indian Railway that
maintains the train, said this proposal was being considered. Sources said it is likely to be implemented by June 19.
Initially, the railways had provided passengers with high-quality earphones. However, more than 330 went missing in the first few weeks.
IRCTC then replaced these with cheaper ones, which cost each Rs30 each. When these also started going missing, the corporation started thinking of charging passengers. The move will also reduce the workload of on-board staffers who distribute the earphones, then collect them at the end of the journey.

Intelligent and practical step by railways to make passengers pay for earphones.
But option should be there to purchase better quality headphones also, as paxs travelling in Premium Tejas Express are habitual of using good quality products/headphones. Bad quality earphones often give earache when used.

Kehte hai na "Paisa mil gaya par aukaat nahi mili"
Same is true for 'some' of the Tejas passengers, stealing the so called high quality headphone (₹300) is understandable till some extent, but stealing cheap quality (₹30) is just INSANE.
According to me a person who's spending around ₹2000 for a train journey can easily afford a good quality headphone.
These are the types
of people because of which even dustbins are chained in trains and stations.
