[Resolved] Indian Railways — COMPLAINT AGAINST TTE AND SPECIAL SQUAD
I am addressing to your office as I couldn't find any mail id at WCR website.
After having suffered many a times I am writing for your kind intervention to stop suffering of the unemployed youths who travel for their interviews etc. and are not in a way to Bribe the TTE for the Berth allotment.
I am basically from Jabalpur and ocassionally travel to Bhopal for interviews ,exams etc.I fear to return by Amarkantak express which leaves Bhopal station at 3:45 pm,and rather consider leaving late by Janshatabdi express which leaves Habibganj at 5:40 pm,because in the later case we get the berth allocated at Ticket counter only.
The reason being that when we ask for a berth allotment in Amarkantak express the TTE normally charges extra amount ranging from 30 to 75 rs.,irrespective of the fact that the train runs vacant till Jabalpur.
The same Happenned to me on 06th march 2008,when i was returning from Bhopal ,by Amarkantak express.I asked the concerned TTE for a Berth till Jabalpur ,he allocated me the Berth S3 - 13 ,but as I had suffered earlier also,I asked him to write my Berth no. on my ticket,which he did,when I quoted the fear of the Special Squad.
When the concerned TTE came to me ,He asked for 120 Rs instead of 93 Rs.,to which I opposed,the reply was " DEKHTA HOON KAUN TERA TICKET BANATA HAI---AUR IS SE DOUBLE NAHIN LAGA TO BATANA" and he left.
When the Special checking Squad came ,I appraised them of the whole case,they instead of listening me asked me to leave the Compartment and settle the case with concerned TTE,to which i opposed that I am sitting on my allotted Berth,why am i not provided the Genuine ticket at Genuine rate,to which they replied that you have to pay Extra ,otherwise you would be charged for Unauthoried Travel which Amounts to 345 Rs.
I was harassed to such an Extent that the Special Squad said to the concerned TTE,that why you write the Berth no. on the Ticket,if you would have not written the Berth no. , I would have charged him with 345 rs..The Special squad people asked my Ticket and gave it to the TTE and asked him to cut the Berth no. allotted and written on Ticket,to which he cut down the same.
Now the Special Squad people gave me two options either to pay 345 for Unauthorised Travel in sleeper or pay 150 rs. now, for 93 rs..
When I saw ,that it is unnecessary harassing ,I gave them 150 rs. ,after which my ticket was made and I was left with words such as -"AB KABHI AISI HIMMAT MAT KARNA-HAMAARE PAAS HAZARON TARIKE HAIN,ABHI ANDER KAR DETE TO PATA CHAL JAATA"
My only request is that to,kindly protect and help us from these kind of instances,which are a daily routine on this train and could be verified anytime.
A process should be defined that TTE allocates the Berth No. and then only we are allowed to enter.
Because all your efforts go in Vain when such instances keep on occuring and are a daily habit for these people.
I would also suggest to allow the Reservation till 10 mins before the train departure ,for trains originating from Bhopal as is done at Jabalpur.
Awaiting your kind reply and necessary action.
Any other Enquiry in this regard is welcome.
Thanks and Regards,
Mohd. Imran Khan
