Carry your ID card in train for all type of tickets booked:
Most of us know if we book tickets online using www.irctc.co.in you need to carry photo id proof but now effective feb 15th 2012 for type of tickets booked even from computerized terminal in station one need to carry id proof.
The passengers will now have to carry a proof of identity while travelling in trains from next week. At present, only passengers travelling on a tatkal or an eticket carry an identity proof while undertaking a train journey. But from February 15, passengers booked on the tickets issued from computerized Passenger Reservation System (PRS) and internet (i-ticket), undertaking journey in AC-3 tier, AC-2 tier, 1st AC, AC chair car and executive classes will have to carry a proof of identity.
This move has been done to keep a check on passengers travelling on transferred tickets.
The passengers can carry any of the nine ID proofs, in original, while undertaking a train journey — Voter ID Card, Passport, PAN card, DL, Photo identity card having serial number issued by central/state government, student identity card with photograph issued by recognized school/college for their students, aadhar card, nationalised bank passbook with photograph and credit cards issued by banks with laminated photograph. The passengers failing to produce the original identity proof, as and when asked for, will be treated as ‘Without Ticket’ and charged accordingly.
The rule will apply for all sorts of tickets issued by the railways. To create awareness among passengers, regarding the move, railways will soon start printing the message on the tickets issued computerised reservation system and Internet.

If you carry copy of the original ID proof it will be treated as ticket less travel and you will be charged with fine by Railways.

The ticket will only be valid with ID proof in original. If found travelling without ID proof, passenger will be treated as without ticket and charges as per Railway rules.
