Attention Train Passengers: Indian Railways has decided to shut down the power supply at charging points at night to overcome incidents of mobile bursting, arson, and theft in the train. Let me know how many hours the charging points will remain closed in the trains at night.
Most rail passengers put their mobiles or laptops on charging as soon as they board the train. If you also have a habit of finding charging points in the train instead of leaving the journey with a full charge from home, mobile laptop, then change it now. Actually, Indian Railways has changed some of its rules. Under this, now passengers will not be able to charge their mobile phone or laptop on the train during the night journey. Railways say that this decision has been taken keeping in mind the incidents of arson and theft in the train so that the untoward can be avoided.
Timetable fixed for charging on the train
According to the railway, now the timetable for mobile charging in trains has been fixed. So, now between 11 am and 5 am, the power supply will be closed in the charging points of the train. Due to this, there will be no incidents of mobile theft, mobile bursting, and arson during the journey at night. This rule has been implemented in many trains. Please tell that on 13 March 2021, there was a fire in Delhi-Dehradun Shatabdi Express. This fire started with one coach and spread to 7 coaches on seeing it. However, no passenger was harmed in the arson. This incident has shocked the railway. After this, the railway is now acting strictly.
