ANNEXURE 'B

(See Rule13 )

LOSS/ MISUSE/ FRAUDULENT USE OF PASSES AND PTOs.

1.   Passes and PTOs are not transferable and should be used only by the person in whose favour they have been issued. Special care should be taken to ensure that passes and PTOs are not lost while in the custody of the pass holder. In the case of loss the pass or privilege ticket order may pass into unauthorised hands leading to fraudulent use for which the pass or PTO holder may have to share responsibility and be also liable for action under the rules. In case of loss of pass or PTO,  a report should be made immediately to the police by the pass or PTO holder sending a copy of the same to the Pass/Privilege Ticket Order issuing authority.

2.   Deterrent punishment should be awarded to railway servants detected misusing passes  and privilege ticket orders; this may take the form of dismissal or removal from service or reduction to a lower post depending upon the seriousness of the offence.

3.   In case of a retired railway servant, misuse of post-retirement complimentary pass renders the retired railway servant liable to be declared ineligible for getting such passes.

4.   A fine of Rs. 10/- for second class and Rs.25/- for First Class passes may be imposed on the Railway employees for not filling the date of commencement of the journey on the passes - both privilege and duty granted them. This amount has to be recovered from the employee by the ticket checking staff and the proper receipt issued. This fact may also be endorsed on the passes. Passes may also be returned within one month of the expiry of the pass or its utilization whichever is earlier. In regard to those cases where a fine has been imposed by the T.T.Es for non-filling the date of commencement of journey on the passes, the following action may be taken
