Rlys asked to pay ₹10k com­pen­sa­tion

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Uttarpradesh -

SA­HA­RAN­PUR: A con­sumer court here has di­rected the In­dian Rail­ways to pay ₹10,000 as com­pen­sa­tion to an el­derly man who faced the agony of be­ing de-boarded from a train as the ticket is­sued to him was wrongly dated 1,000 years into the fu­ture. Re­tired Pro­fes­sor Vishnu Kant Shukla said he booked a ticket for Kan­nauj from a Rail­way reser­va­tion win­dow in 2013. How­ever, in­stead of 2013, the year men­tioned on the ticket is­sued to Shukla was 3013. Shukla paid the price for the print­ing er­ror as a ticket checker noted the dis­crep­ancy. Ac­cord­ing to Shukla, the rail­way of­fi­cial asked him to pay a ₹800 fine which he re­fused.
