    Men in Delhi Metro women's coaches fined Rs 32 lakh


    NEW DELHI: Fines from men travelling in women's only coaches have swelled Delhi Metro coffers by a staggering Rs 32 lakh in the two years since the rule was introduced on Oct 2, 2010, an official said.

    In August alone, 1,538 men were penalised Rs 3.8 lakh but they continue to break the rule with impunity :borat:, the official said. This, in spite of the fact that the first coach of each train is reserved for women only and this is prominently marked on both the train and on the platform.

    "Since the introduction of reserved coaches, 12,757 men have been fined Rs 3,189,250 for unlawful entry in the last two years:rofl:," a Delhi Metro official told IANS.

    Initially, Delhi Metro collected Rs 200 each from men flouting the law. The fine was raised to Rs.250 in November 2010 after policemen nabbed and thrashed several men travelling in a women's-only coach.

    Delhi Metro runs around 2,700 train trips and carries more than 18 lakh passengers a day on work days. :cool2:

    I was once in woman coach too. To be fair i was at the edge of the general coach but security chap thought i had ulterior motives. I wasn't fined though.
