Reservation form should match id proof and planning for safety cess Indian Railways

Reservation Form Passenger Full Name Should Match ID Proof of Passenger

One ticket, One ID Rule for Reservation tickets

 Indian Railway decides to implement one ticket one ID rule
to prevent the misuse of the reserved tickets. According to the rule the name
in the tickets should be exactly like name mentioned in the ID proof, so make
sure the name you write in the reservation form is exactly the same in the ID
proof while booking the tickets from next time onwards.
Indian Rail New Rules and up coming rules

The rule has been affected from January 1st onwards. For
this rule the railway officials hopes to put an end to the menace of illegal
transfer of tickets by the touts.
But this rule should be confused with the facility that
allows passengers to transfer the tickets in their names to their family
members. If a person is holding confirmed tickets and is unable to travel then
the ticket can be transferred to his/her family members including parents,
siblings, children’s or spouse.
According to the rule if any passenger’s name on the
reservation charts doesn’t match with the one on the ID proof, that passengers
will be treated as travelling without a tickets.
