Smile What all would you like in a private train, if you owned one ?

Private planes, yes, everyone has heard of them. I think some members here even own one or two. But private train ?? That's true Maharaja style.

Punjab Farmer Wins Train In Legal Fight With Indian Railways
Written by Agence-France Presse | Updated: March 18, 2017 15:30 IST

The court awarded Sampuran Singh an express train in lieu of the 10 million he was owed.

A Ludhiana farmer's battle for proper compensation for land seized to build a Ludhiana-Chandigarh railway line reached an unexpected conclusion this week when a court awarded him a train.

Sampuran Singh has been fighting for the money since 2015, when he went to court to argue that Indian Railways had underpaid him for a piece of land in the northern state of Punjab, acquired to build new tracks.

He won his case, but the railway refused to pay and he filed another plea in January.

On Friday, Singh's lawyer said a court in the state had awarded him an express train in lieu of the 10 million rupees he was owed.

"We were tired of pleading with the railways to clear the pending dues. The court asked us to identify properties for recovering our money," Rakesh Gandhi told AFP.

Judge Jaspal Verma also granted Singh ownership of the station master's office in Ludhiana, a city in Punjab that the train passes through.

After the hearing on Wednesday Singh and his lawyer took the court order to Ludhiana station where they waited for the train to arrive before handing the document to the driver.

Singh said he allowed the driver to carry on to its destination as stopping it "would have caused inconvenience to thousands of passengers".

Railway officials later secured an interim court order giving them control of the train until the case is heard again on Saturday.

"If they fail to pay the money by Saturday then the court can sanction an auction," Gandhi said of the 20-coach express train, which runs daily between New Delhi and the Sikh holy city of Amritsar in Punjab.

Several Indian courts in the past have unsuccessfully awarded trains to aggrieved farmers over unpaid dues.

Last year, an express train was confiscated on court orders after a 62-year-farmer in southern Karnataka state won a compensation case over land taken in 2006.

The intercity express was halted at Harihar station for two hours before officials convinced him to release it.

And in 2015, railway officials handed over 3 million rupees to two farmers at a station in the northern state of Himachal Pradesh to secure the release of an express train.

Re: What all would you like in a private train, if you owned one ?

Reminds of Akshay Kumar movie Khatta Meetha
Court ne haathi de diya par haati ka kiya hua nuksaan ki bharpai haati se kai jyada.

why cannot courts take action against railways for contempt ?
