These checks were conducted from 18.12.2009 to 18.01.2010 covering Christmas, New Year, Pongal and Makara Jyothi festivals. During the above drive, a total of 70 touts were apprehended in various PRS locations over Southern Railway and tickets to the value of Rs. 97722/- were seized and a fine of Rs. 34500/- was collected.

  In addition to these, checks were also conducted in running trains to detect travel without ticket, irregular travel, transfer of tickets etc. Vigilance officials along with Headquarters Flying Squad TTEs participated in these checks during which 2917 cases of passengers travelling on transfer of tickets/ without tickets/with irregular tickets were detected and Rs. 1701275/- was realised as fare and penalty.
