 Section 147 of Railway act prescribes that:-

1. If any person enters upon or into any part of a railway without lawful authority he shall be punishable with imprisonment for a term which may be extended to six months or with a fine which may extend to one thousand rupees or with both.

Provided that in the absence of special and adequate reasons to the contrary to be mentioned in the judgment of the court, such punishment shall not be less than a fine of five hundred rupees.

2. Any person referred to in sub-section(1) may be removed from the railway by any railway servant or by any other person whom such railway servant may call to his aid.

Suggest solutions for reducing trespassing of Railway tracks.

Use notice board, warning message at prone trespassing areas. Railway people should identify & inform the respective authority. There shoul be surprise check by railway official & find, punish people who broke rule. so that people will have fear next time. Built foot over bridge where ever require. Railway official & worker duty, work & responsibility should be reviewed & recorded in system in rural & village areas. Aware people through media advertising & other medium explaining the consequence.
