Madurai, Nov 26: After making photo identity card compulsary if you book e-ticket for railway journeys, students are faced with yet another problem. As they cannot produce any specigic identity document. People below 18 years are forced to pay penalty.
The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation has made it mandatory for passengers to carry photo-identity cards while travelling on e-ticket. It has prescribed driving licence, PAN card, voter identity card, passport and any other photo-identity card issued by the Central or State governments as bona fide cards. “If the passenger is found travelling without the original copy of any one of these cards, he will be considered travelling without ticket and fined," said a senior railway official.
