Accordingly, it has been decided to earmark the following accommodation for onboard Ticket Checking Staff & RPF/GRP:-

a. Mail/Express trains with sleeping accommodation and leg-wise manning (Covering normal Mail/Express trains, Mahamana etc.)

To make it clearer, if the train is being escorted by GRP, one berth will be earmarked for GRP and in case the train is escorted by RPF, one berth in sleeper class will be earmarked for RPF. In case no RPF/GRP is escorting the train, no accommodation will be earmarked for them.

2. The number of berths/seats to be earmarked in a train for onboard ticket checking staff will be keeping in view the composition of the train. In case the number of staff manning a train on regular basis (working as per roster) is less, the number of berths/seats to be earmarked for onboard ticket checking staff can be reduced and the same can be reviewed also subsequently based on manning on regular basis (working as per roster) subject to maximum yardstick indicated above. In the train also the number of berths/seats to be utilized by the onboard ticket checking staff will be equal to the number of staff and the berths/seats in excess will be released to RAC or other passengers.
