Twitter complaint gets TT suspended for not giving slip


Jaipur, Sep 13 Acting on a complaint received on Twitter, North Western Railway has suspended a Travelling Ticket Examiner (TTE) for not giving passengers a slip against allotment of seats in the Barmer-Kalka express.


The incident occurred on Saturday when TTE Shyam Pal was collecting Rs 15 from passengers for allotting seats to them in a reserved coach.

A passenger travelling from Barmer to Bikaner tweeted about the incident and tagged railway authorities before reaching Jodhpur station.

Taking prompt action, a vigilance officer was asked to look into the matter. The officer got onboard from Jodhpur and checked the records and money with the TTE and found unaccounted cash with him.

"The vigilance officer then asked Shyampal to alight at Merta road junction and was subsequently suspended," DRM Jodhpur, NWR, Rahul Goyal, said today.
