According to the Ministry of Railways, many passengers complain about the disturbances while travelling at night. They complain about loud noises and people listening to the music at night on speakers.
The move came after the Railway Board received complaints from passengers about some people talking loudly or listening to music on mobile during the night.
Keeping this in mind, the Board has decided that during your night journey, no passenger will be allowed to talk in loud voice on mobile after 10 pm, nor s/he will be able to listen to music in a loud voice.
Action will be taken against such people on receiving complaints from passengers.
