Ludhiana: Rajinder Singh, a local travel ticket checker, got selected for an honorary award that he will receive from Northern Railway general manager TP Singh in New Delhi for his exemplary service in the past 19 years. For Rajinder, hailing from a sports background, it was indeed a matter of pride, as the award comes due to his exceeding the target of fines collected from ticketless travellers.Railway sources said that last year, he had collected Rs28 lakh from passengers travelling without tickets in the train as well as at the station during his day and night duty hours, submitting the entire collection to the railway treasury, and becoming the lone ticket checker from Ferozepur division to achieve the target. Incidentally, no complaints have ever been made against Singh for charging an arbitrary amount on general as well reserved tickets in any long or short distance train.Speaking about this achievement, Singh said:...
“It was a very happy moment for me when I found my name figuring in the list of railway officials selected for honorary awards by higher railway authorities.” He said in the past 19 years, he had always tried to give his best performance, which was now recognised by the railways. Passengers too have always appreciated his services. He said it was the first time he was selected for any honorary award, and was very excited.Railway officials said the honorary award was given to those who generate appropriate revenue (a fixed target given for every ticket checker) while issuing tickets to passengers found without ticket or in need of a ticket in an emergency situation. According to information, Rajinder had joined the Indian Railways as a cleaner in a diesel shed in 1999. Due to his hard work and exceptional performance in the sports events of railways, he got a promotion in the second year after his joining, and became part of the ticket checking staff deputed in the city railway station.For 17 years, Singh had contributed to the railway treasury with his best efforts, and every year, he either meets or exceeds the target given to him by higher authorities in terms of collections from ticketless travellers. Due to his hard work and positive attitude, he was promoted as a ticket inspector in the city railway station in 2011. Last year too, Singh got an honorary award from the divisional railway manager of Ferozepur division because of his constant efforts in exceeding his targets.Ludhiana railway station director Abhinav Singla said, “It is a proud moment for local ticket checking staff as one of their colleagues Rajinder Singh has been selected for the General Manager Awards for his best services. As per the information, nobody from local ticket checking department has been nominated for award for the past more than 50 years.”Award for another railway officialAnother local railway official, Sunil Kumar, will also get the general manager’s award in the coming days for his best contribution towards the development of railway infrastructure. Speaking on this, Kumar said: “I joined the railways in 1986 as an inspector of works (Grade 3 employee) at Hazrat Nizamudin railway station, and completed several development works in the given time. After that, in 1994, I received the chief administration officer award from the higher authorities of the Northern Railway. Later, the railways promoted me as a section engineer officer to look after the development work in Ludhiana, one of the biggest stations of the Northern Division, and upgrade the station’s basic infrastructure for the convenience of passengers.”
