COMMENTS: The Railways Act among other things regulates smoking on trains. It prohibits smoking if objected to by another passenger and confers authority on the railway administration to prohibit smoking in any train or a part of a train. It imposes a maximum penalty of 100 rupees for those who contravene the Act’s no smoking provisions. The Act available here is in English only.
