NEW DELHI: The Delhi State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission on Friday asked Northern Railway to compensate a passenger for his stolen luggage and said it was obligated to ensure that a traveller reaches his destination safely with his baggage. The commission rejected the railway's contention, invoking Section 100 of the Indian Railways Act, that the railway administration shall not be responsible for loss, etc. of any luggage unless the railway servant has booked the luggage and given receipt thereof. The commission asked the railway to pay Rs 25,000 as compensation and Rs 5,000 as litigation cost to west Delhi-resident Sachin Mittal who lost his luggage while travelling to Delhi from Lucknow in 2000.
