Tatkal ticket holders will now have to carry ID proof

New Delhi: Passengers travelling on tatkal tickets must now carry their identity proof in original or face the prospect of being treated as ticket-less travellers and penalised.

Dogged with complaints of alleged irregularities in the ‘tatkal scheme’, Railways have directed that passengers travelling on such tickets must produce proof of their identity from February 11 onwards.

Any one of the passengers travelling in a group have to produce the ID proof “failing which all passengers travelling on the said ticket will be treated as travelling without tickets and will be charged excess fare and penalty as per rules”, a statement issued here said.

The identity proof could be a voter photo identity card, passport, PAN card, driving licence, photo identity card issued by Central or State Government, student identity card issued by recognised school/college, nationalised bank passbook with photograph and credit cards issued by banks with laminated photograph.
