No. 496/2013-1428-11-2013
Railway Protection Force (RPF) Nabs 48 Unauthorised Booking Agents Through Sustained Efforts

The Railway Protection Force (RPF) Personnel of South Central Railway are keeping a close surveillance o­n the ticket booking activities in the Twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad through the Web-site of Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC).  As a result of this constant monitoring, RPF gathered credible information that some  agents without valid license are booking e-tickets and selling the same at a premium to their customers.  Further information revealed that these agents are creating  several  personal IDs to book reserved  e-tickets, under both Tatkal and general quota  and  supplying  the same to their customers.

Acting o­n the information input, the Security Department of SCR formed a task force and conducted raids with the assistance of vigilance wing of IRCTC at Secunderabad and Hyderabad areas for a period of 20 days. During these raids, the railway team booked 30 cases against agents indulging in unauthorised  booking and selling of e-tickets. This is in addition to 18 cases booked at RPF Post Secunderabad earlier. In all, 48 accused were booked and registered cases by RPF Posts at Secunderabad, Hyderabad and Sanath Nagar under section 143 of the Railways Act and were  sent to judicial remand.

In this connection, passengers are advised not to purchase reserved tickets from unauthorised agents / touts to avoid  trouble. Intense monitoring and checking of ticket booking activities is being done by the Railways to curb the menace of touts. Stringent action will be initiated against the guilty under relevant statutory provisions.
