Big news: mobiles and laptops will not be able to charge at night during train journey, know what is the reason

If you are celebrating Holi and returning to work by train, then this news is for you because the Indian Railways has made a big change in its rules. 
Under this, passengers will not be able to charge mobile phones or laptops in the train at night time. Accordingly, from 11 am to 5 am, the charging supply will be closed. Railways have taken this decision keeping in mind the incidents of fire in the train so that any untoward incident can be avoided.

Please tell that a few days ago there was a fire in the Delhi-Dehradun Shatabdi Express. Although it did not harm any passenger, but it has caused the Indian Railways to be vigilant after which the strictures are being continuously used and now the Railways has decided to keep the charging point closed.

According to Business Today news, Chief Railway Public Relations Officer of Western Railway Sumit Thakur said that keeping in mind the safety of passengers, the railway has announced to keep the charging points off from 11 am to 5 am.

In the recent past, due to overheating of laptops and mobile phones in long distance trains during charging, a fire incident has come to light, so the Railways has taken this decision. Thakur said that it will soon be implemented in all railway zones as well.

A railway official said that all the employees, including the AC mechanic, have been informed about the closure of the charging point at night. Along with this, the authorities have also decided to conduct surprise inspections and take strict action against the employees if they are found to be defective.

Along with this, the railway is also planning to clamp down on the smokers who smoke in the train. Indian Railways is planning to propose to increase the punishment for such crimes. Currently, people who smoke in trains are punished by those who smoke inside vehicles under Section 167 of the Railway Act. Smoking passengers face a fine of up to 100 rupees.
