Boarding or alighting a moving train will win you 'NO AWARD', the Indian Railways recently came up with a jocular yet earnest message in order to create an awareness among the passengers so that they avoid risking their lives by boarding running trains in platforms.

The Ministry of Railways took to Twitter to state: "Railway station is not the right place to show your talent. Please do not board or alight a running train as it will get you no reward. It is only a life threatening practice."

This apart, the Railways has warned the passengers who block the gates of the trains causing problems for other commuters board & alight safely.

Do not block the gates of trains. Let the commuters board & alight safely. Blocking the gates of trains is a punishable offense. Railway Protection Force (RPF) of Western Railway conducts drives against such people from time to time, the WR mentioned in a tweet.
