Hyderabad: South Central Railway will be conducting checks to ensure that only permitted baggage is carried on board by passengers and excess baggage is carried in the luggage van.
Each passenger is allowed a free allowance of luggage carried with the passenger, which varies for different classes of travel. Children aged 5 and below 12 years are allowed half of the free allowance subject to the maximum of 50 kg.
According to the rules, when a passenger is detected either en route or at the destination with un-booked or partially booked luggage weighing more than the free allowance, the excess un-booked weight is charged at six times the luggage scale rate. When a passenger is detected with un-booked or partially booked luggage more than the maximum limit, the excess weight is charged at six times the luggage rate.
