Driver Left Goods Train Standing on Platform

Harda: A goods train driver created a headache for railway staff when he decided to leave a goods train on platform no.1 at Harda station in Madhya Pradesh. Train was destined for Budhni in Sehore district.

So what has made driver leave the train in-between?

goods train at harda station


A train driver is supposed to work for 10 hours in a day. This goods train started from Khandwa station on time but obviously got delayed on its passage. The driver saw the watch and calculated that the 10 hours of duty are complete. He jumped off the train and informed the control room that his duty is over and he has parked the train at Harda,

The distance to be traveled was just 100 km. But due to unavailability of assistant driver and lack of loco pilots meant that train couldn't move. It caused delays to other passenger trains running on the route causing deep inconvenience to many passengers.

It is unknown if railway would take any action against the driver. The local staff doesn't even know whether it is permissible under the railways code of conduct for drivers to leave a train like that.

Few months ago a train, namely Karnataka express, skipped the same station leaving many people shocked.

All in all it is quite common to see such incidents on not so common routes. As they say - "It happens only in India!".

Why even hackers don't hack IRCTC ?

In a country like India where due to abundance of talented IT and programming talent, the claim that no one will even attempt to hack IRCTC doesn't seem right.

Especially when there are great benefits of doing so.



Of course new programmers do get excited and try and hack a website. After all what it requires is some good and intelligent programming. Although there are no known hacks, some well known hackers might be considering making an autobot that will just require to fill in captcha at the time of ticket booking.
