The passengers can get the 'trouble' from the Railways new rule

Without ticket entry to be 'restricted' at selected railway stations’ platform 


JUNE 08 (WTN) - As you know, a platform ticket is required to get entry to the railway station platform. When you are not traveling, you go to the platform with platform ticket to receive or drop someone on platform. But now you will not be able to enter with a platform ticket on the platform of select stations in the country. Why this is going to do, let us briefly tell you about it.

Actually, in order to safeguard the security and to reduce the ever increasing crowd on railway stations, the Railways are going to arrange an airport-like entry and exit system on some selected stations. The Railways is doing this under the plan to modernize the railway stations of the A-One category of the country under its 100 days agenda. But people believe that due to this new rule of Railways, passengers will have to face a lot of troubles, especially those who are elderly or ill.

Under the new scheme of Railways, only those people will be able to enter on the railway platform, who will have a travel ticket. That is, with platform tickets anybody will no longer get entry on the platform. According to the information, arrangements for automatic gates are being set up at all A and A1 category stations. This scheme will be implemented at Habibganj and Gandhinagar railway stations in the beginning. After reviewing this plan, it will also be implemented on stations like Delhi and Mumbai.

The Railways claims that for the better protection of railway stations, the RPF commando will also be trained like the CISF commando stationed on the airports. The Railways has planned to spend 115 crores for this project. Railways argue that the main motto behind this is safety of the passengers, which is the first priority.

By the way, at first glance, the idea of railways is commendable that any measures should be taken to safeguard the stations and to control the growing crowd on platforms. But if when someone has a platform ticket, so it is not appropriate to stop his entry on the platform from any point of view. Actually, the Railway plan in itself is completely impractical. Comparison of the arrangements for the arrival of passengers in the airports and railway stations is not justified in any way. That is why, because the airports are away from the city and there are very few people go there compared to the railway station, because of which all passengers can get entry after checking tickets at the airport.

But there has been so much rush on big railway stations that it is impractical to get enter by checking the ticket of the passenger. While the elderly or the sick person travels alone in the train, then their relatives or familiar come to receive them on platform with platform ticket. But if someone else will not be allowed to enter the platform with platform ticket, then in these circumstances elderly and sick people traveling alone may have to face difficulty in coming out of the station.

It is true that the first objective of the Railways is to protect the passengers. But after checking every passenger ticket at large stations, some people’s train will depart on many times in the roundabout to enter the platform; that who will be responsible for it in that case? It is impractical to compare the railway station from the airport; and it is more impractical than it is to check every passenger's ticket and get them enter on the platform. The big question is that the Railways is able to make so many entrances and check points on the stations for the hundreds of passengers so that no one' train  can depart due to ticket checking.
