THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Southern Railways has said that an individual can avail of only one season ticket at a given time. Splitting of season ticket into two or more to cover a wider area is a punishable offence, the Railways said in a statement here the other day.
The maximum distance which can be travelled with a season ticket is 150 km and a season ticket holder whether (1st class or II class) is not permitted to board a reserved coach. However, in Thiruvananthapuram Division, selected coaches in a few trains are declared as de-reserved coaches in which travelling by season ticket is permitted.
As per this, first class season tickets are issued for Parasuram Express or Venad Express in which un-reserved first class coaches are available. Travel by first class season ticket holders in first class, or any of the reserved coaches, including sleeper coaches, of other Express trains even after taking supplementary ticket is not permitted. All season ticket holders, including those who posses a valid first class season ticket, are bound to travel in general coaches in case a particular train does not have a de-reserved coach.
All reserved first class and air-conditioned class passengers should posses a valid photo identity card during travel and are bound to produce it for verification when on demand by an authorised Railway servant.
