There was a prevalent practice that Weigh Bills were handed over to Guard by the Goods Clerk for handing over to the next changing Guard for final disposal at destination station for realization of undercharge.
During investigation of a check at VYN, it was found that re-weighment memo was handed over by GS/VYN to the respective Guard for realization of undercharge. But, due to any unknown reason, these failed to reach destination and resulting into delivery without realization of undercharge. This happened as there was no information in this regard in the FOIS. When destination station got information after delivery, party refused to pay the dues.
A Systemic Improvement was suggested to DV/T Rly. Bd. for integration of weighment data of EIMWB with the FOIS for ensuring realization of Railway revenue before delivery at destination.
