Railways: If you have to travel anywhere in an emergency, then you will first choose to travel by railway. In a railway journey, you will also book tickets immediately and complete the journey, but sometimes it becomes difficult to get tickets immediately. But you also need to travel; so many times people board the train without a ticket.
But can you travel without an urgent ticket in an emergency? What would you do if you caught a TTE while traveling without you? In such a situation, we are going to tell you about the rule that has been made by the railways.
First of all, let me tell you that if you are traveling without a ticket, you will not be jailed and you will not be given any kind of exemption. For this, the railways have made a special rule, and you must be aware of this rule.
As per railway rules, traveling without a ticket is a punishable offense. But if you have to travel in an emergency, then you can travel by taking a general ticket or platform ticket from the platform. First of all, you have to get a platform ticket by paying ₹10, board the train, and talk to the TTE.
If the seat is empty, it will be easier to travel
Now you also have to give information about the destination station while telling the TTE about your problem. After listening to your entire talk, TTE will make your ticket, and now you can travel by train without any worry.
If there is an empty seat on the train, you will also get a place to sit. The TTE has a handheld machine with which he gives you a ticket inside the train. According to railway rules, if you don’t have a reserved ticket, you will have to pay a fine of Rs 250. Along with this, you will also have to pay the fare from where you boarded the train to the destination station.
