    Now the trains may be stopped en route to check for ticket checking and other defaulters.

    Either too we are accustomed with the train checking inside the compartment and that is done on the move. Having sensed the laxity on the part of TT's who are not doing their work properly, the Railways have now created special squads to check for the ticket less travel, over baggage issue, traveling in compartment allotted to Ladies and other irregularities and this surprise checks would be done by stopping the train even at the middle between the stations. So next time when the train stops in a remote area, never panic for any robbing but for ticket checking.

    As far as my knowledge goes this squad checking was introduced long back. Whether it was discontinued in between I have no idea. Sometimes the travelling ticket collector used to say that the squad may come for inspection. Probably the same is being reintroduced now. It is always good to have a random check so that people will be more alert.

    Yes it is reintroduced once again with sweeping power to punish on the spot as the mobile squad as the court too.

    This should be initiated to prevent fraudulent person and thief inside trains. Along with with, we also have a bus ticket checking. This will also help and ensure that people with empty tickets will not make problems.

    However stopping the train in remote area just to check the tickets might put all the passengers in jeopardy. Don't you think so?

    Why stopping in remote areas means, there cannot be running away from the train.

    If it is frequently implemented, the delay will increase by leaps and bounds. Any person who works/has worked in the Operating branch of Indian Railways can tell you. The proposal is totally impractical. Even if it is started by the authority, it will be discontinued in maximum three months' time.

    The ongoing system is required to be strengthened further.

    Mohan, are you seriously serious? Checking is fine but stopping a train in between (my God) does not seem so. Can you please provide the details? Let me remind you that we are not on a social platform as such.

    By the way never ask for the proof of what ever matter raised. We are not that cheap and mean to report something which is imagined from ourselves. You can get the information from the Ministry of Railways.

    Even the Hindu has reported this in a article and here is the link as proof.

    If the idea is implemented, it will ;lead to more problems only and can be of more help to criminals. It s a very crude idea in a modern world when there are many other ways to deal with ticket-less travel.

    But the short distance passengers are boarding the reserved compartments for free and availing the service and thus Railways hit upon this idea.

    Mohan, I did not ask for the source of information here but was just requesting you to provide some more details. The whole idea is impractical and as Partha said, will not last for many days even if implemented.
