Hi there,
I would like to introduce myself my name is Don Sear and currently live in London. I am very interested in Indian Railways and would appreciate some assistance with a hobby of mine that is railway related. I am a collector of used train tickets worldwide and would appreciate some assistance in obtaining a variety of different tickets of Indian Railways used? There are a few questions I would like to ask:
Do all tickets get collected at the end of the journey?
are tickets collected on the longer distance journeys?
How would I be able to obtain tickets that are used, for my own collection.
The few I was fortunate enough to receive were defaced. I would like the tickets checked as illegible with pen by being heavily scribbled.
Is there anyone who can help me out?
Many thanks
Don Sear

Many thanks for your reply. You are right in relation to the longer distance journeys where e-tickets are in widespread use, there is little point. what about tickets from more local journeys how does this work, are they collected or just abandoned?
Many thanks

Collected or just abandoned...both are true. In most of the big stations, Ticket checking staff will be waiting near exit to check the ticket from passengers and collect them normally (unless passenger demands that he needs it). Otherwise, passengers will abandon it.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
