Desk: There will be no one in the country who has not used the train for his long journey. The railway is considered to be the best means of travel. Several facilities have been provided to the passengers during the visit. But there is a rule behind it.
Passengers have the option of chain pulling in case of an emergency while traveling by train. But you can not always use this option. Rules are being framed for this. Breaking this rule can result in a fine. Let us know under what circumstances Jain should be pulled up.
When to take the train
If you are traveling in a train and a passenger is left at the railway station, then in such a situation you can pull the chain of the train. If there is a fire in the train, someone has fallen from the train, an old or disabled person is facing some kind of trouble, there is a medical problem, or snatching or robbery is happening in the train, then in such a situation you can pull.
If there is any problem other than this, the railway authorities will have to check through assessment whether chain pulling was necessary in the situation or not. Also, keep in mind that it is illegal to pull a passenger’s train due to a delay at the railway station. Delaying the departure of the train will be considered an offense.
What is the punishment for snatching?
Based on Section 141 of the Indian Railways Act, it is considered illegal to pull a chain without a large area. According to this Railway Act, if a passenger pulls the chain of a train without any proper reason, then he will be considered guilty. In such a situation, he can be jailed for one year or fined up to Rs 1,000. If you have done this for the first time, then you can get some leniency in the punishment.
