Quite last some time back, Indian Railways stated a policy to collect the birth charges along with the tickets at once while booking the tickets. However, vey few tickets are being confirmed. However, in all the cases, they issue waiting list, but collect the entire cost of the tickets and cost of birth. Most of the tickets are being kept for Tatkal. In absence of allotment of birth, they never return the birth charges plus interest collected at the time of booking, they they are being enriched. over and above they never understand whether they get the confirmation or not and they become pank till the last minute of reaching their destination.
As per Supreme Courts order, nobody is entrusted to be enriched by collecting the money without refund and interest.
So, I would like to file a PIL against Indian Railways for their illegal collection.
