THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Railway passengers booking tickets through the computerised passenger reservation system (PRS) or internet for upper class travel, including first AC, AC two-tier, AC three-tier, AC chair car and executive classes would have to carry the original of an identity proof during the journey.

For travellers in groups, any one of the passenger should produce the ID proof. E-ticket passengers and tatkal passengers were brought under the rule some months ago. The passengers who fail to produce the ID card would be treated as travelling without tickets and charged accordingly, said a release from the Southern Railway here on Monday.

The documents for valid identity proof are: Election ID card issued by the Election Commission of India, passport, PAN card, driving licence, photo identity card with serial number issued by Central or State Government, student identity card with photograph issued by recognised schools or colleges, passbook with photograph issued by any nationalised bank, credit card with laminated photograph issued by a bank and the unique identification card or Aadhaar.
