WR’s ticketless travel haul gets Rs 9.17L/day

Western Railway’s drive against unauthorized travel has started paying dividends, as the number of passengers buying tickets each day has increased by as much as 38,000. Western Railway earned Rs 10.83 crore from various forms of ticketing between November 21-26. Passengers too increased by 2.26 lakh during that particular period.

A senior official said, “We will intensify the drive so that revenue increases. It will also bring relief to first class commuters or those in coaches reserved for the handicapped, as many without valid tickets enter them.”

The first such drive was at Borivli station, with fortress check extending 36 hours on November 19-20. The drive included checks on trains as well as at stations between Borivli and Virar.
