|Class of travel||Minimum class of ticket required for permission to board the train from originating and intermediate station.|

3. The passenger, who do not have any reserved ticket and who could not get the reservation at current counter, shall be required to purchase minimum class of ticket as stated above and must approach ticket checking staff manning the coaches before boarding the train. Under no circumstances, passenger should board the reserved coaches without the permission of on-board ticket checking staff.
4. Necessary instructions may be issued to all concerned.
5. Information on this account should be disseminated through all available means for information of general public. This disposes off North Western Railway’s letter No.C-436/Double Decker dated 24.04.2014.
