Indian Railways collects a massive amount from ticketless travellers! The Western Railway zone of the national transporter has recovered an amount of Rs 93.96 crore in the last eight months – and the whopping sum has been collected from over 19.19 lakh cases of ticketless travellers.

According to Bhakar, in the month of November 2019 alone, Western Railways recovered an amount of Rs 10.59 crore from 2.14 lakh cases of ticketless travel. These cases included those of unbooked luggage as well. Moreover, as many as 336 beggars, as well as 363 unauthorized hawkers, were also apprehended, the CPRO further stated. Additionally, the commercial department of Indian Railways also conducted a total of 1,861 checks against touts and anti-social elements between the months of April and November, he added.
Recently, Piyush Goyal in Lok Sabha announced that Indian Railways earned an amount of Rs 139.20 crore from the sale of platform tickets in the financial year 2018-19.
