Indian Railways (Temporarily) Save Face And Jan Shatabdi From Falling Into Hands Of Farmers

Updated on 10 July, 2016 at 3:51 pm By

The Indian Railways battled against time and managed to save a property the loss of which would have caused them international embarrassment and made them the butt of all jokes on social media.

A court case related to inadequate compensation by railway authorities to two farmers had brought the Delhi-Una Jan Shatabdi Express at the centre.

Ruling on the Rs.35 lakh compensation case on April 9, Una’s additional district and sessions judge Mukesh Bansal had ordered for the train to be attached in case the railways failed to pay the amount by April 15.

Obviously, losing a train – especially a profit-making one – would have destroyed the esteem of the world’s seventh largest employer. So they acted really fast.



 

Just before the end of the deadline time at 5 am – which was also the train’s departure time – on April 16, Senior Station Engineer S.K. Sharma presented two DDs amounting up to the total of Rs.35 lakh before the court bailiff who was present at the station with the two farmers and their advocate.

But there seems to be a catch. The Indian Express reports that the additional district judge has declined to drop the proceedings for the attachment of the train because he found that the photocopies of the draft were not in the names of the farmers. Also, he pointed out that the DDs should have been submitted before the Una court and not the High Court because the latter has already disposed of the case.

In a limbo, they say.
