This time the touts or unauthorized agents have targeted tatkal tickets and worked out a simple strategy and it is alleged that it is being done with the connivance of some railways booking clerks. Modus operandi is simple. The gang of touts capture the reservation counters. They send their people much ahead of time who stand first in the queue everyday for tatkal tickets. It has been heard that unauthorized travel agents post their men outside the reservation counter (or in front of counter if counters are not in a locked building) either in the night or in wee hours. Bonafide passengers either fail to book tatkal ticket or have to contend with a waitlisted tatkal ticket. By the time the turn of a bonafide passenger comes, all the confirmed tatkal tickets are booked by the touts. When people fail to book tatkal tickets from the reservation counters, they are left...
without any option and forced to purchase tatkal tickets from touts and unauthorized agents. In addition to takal charges, agents ask extra money ranging Rs 300 to Rs 500 per ticket. The connivance of reservation clerks can not be denied in supporting touts as it shouldn't be easy for touts to manage tatkal tickets in big numbers without willingness of the reservations clerks.Pepole did many complaints against it but railway authority couldn't succeed to nab unauthorized agents.After getting failed to nab unauthorized travel agents, railway should install CCTV cameras at reservation counters to identify the touts and unauthorized travel agents.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
