New Delhi: If you are of the opinion that Indian Railways will give you any compensation in lieu of theft of your luggage while traveling in a train, then read this news first. Yes, according to a big news, the Supreme Court of the country has said in one of its big and important decisions that compensation will not be given if the goods are stolen in the train. Regarding this decision, the court said that the security of luggage is not a part of the railway service. The Supreme Court made it clear that theft in a train cannot be termed as deficiency in the service of the Railways.
In fact, the Supreme Court in one of its important decisions said that money stolen from a passenger during a train journey cannot be termed as deficiency of service on the part of the Railways. After the decision of the court, an order in this regard of the District, State and National Consumer Forum has also been cancelled.
Let us tell you that this decision has come in the matter of appeal of Railways on this after a petition filed by a person named Surender Bhola. In this regard, the passenger said that his amount of one lakh rupees was stolen during the journey in the train. In the present case, he approached the consumer court, following which an order was passed to the Indian Railways to pay an amount of Rs one lakh as compensation to the passenger. Railways was not happy with this decision.
At the same time, seeing that the State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission and the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission did not take a decision, the Railways approached the Supreme Court in the matter presented. At the same time, the court has overturned the orders of the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission and the State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission given in favor of the passenger. In this regard, the Supreme Court argued that the court finds it difficult to understand how theft can be considered as deficiency in service on the part of the Railways. Especially when the traveler himself is not able to keep his belongings safe.
