 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.

Dear Sir, You have asked rich people to give up subsidy on LPG. Yes we are ready, but we wish that all past and present MLAs , MPs, Municipal Corporators and all such people representatives, politicians should give up the LPG subsidy first and then ask the general public to do the same. I hope you will start this by announcing in open public that no politician, MLA, MP (past and present) should get LPG subsidy.

Recently when I raised issue of lack of infrastructure in accessing Yashwanthpur terminal railway station of South Western Railway I receives reply:
"The problems raised by u are genuine... But the taxes u pay are not a part of railways kitty.. the state government which gets the part of the taxes u pay is to provide this additional facilities.. Railways can only provide facilities within railway premises.."

BY creating only 2 entries for station and alloting 2 to 3 ticket collectors for each staion the economy of railways automatically improves as everyone will fall in trap and cannot travel in a train unless a ticket is issued.and people will fear about passing time in railway station with out platform tickets.

Deaths due to tresspassing can be avoided by providing sufficient sub way and over bridge in railway stations and also one rule must be adapted ie issuing of train tickets to be stoped exactly 10 mins before departure of respective train.I also request the railway authorities to close all the alternative ways from where passengers can enter the station,construct a 7 feet compound to a complete stretch of stations platform on both sides and make only 2 entries one for entry and one for exit.

Deaths are also because the food provided by INDIAN RAILWAYS.the FOOD QUALITY is very POOR, and still the rates are very high in respect to markets, INDIAN RAILWAYS providing HYGENIC FOOD WITH HIGH RATES. not even a single station is there where good quality food is provided, let an example of JANTA AAHAR foodprice is low Rs. 15 and see the quality of this food, not a single dog can eat....

many accidents are happening while boarding trains . people are falling in the platform gap. so trains height should be almost equal to the platform .the height of the platform and the trains should be unified all over india. or do something to fill the gap between the train and the platform. or fix automatic doors for all trains....this is so cruel ....think about the people and the staff of railways who are seeing accidents everyday......

Respected indian railway member there is lot of crowd at wadala & other stn in mumbai city i would request u to construct subway (like in borivali stn ) so commuters can travel to a particular platform & not having just foot over bridge as an option.This will also benefit senior citizen
