South Central Railways will be conducting checks to ensure that only permitted baggage is carried on board by passengers and excess baggage is carried in the luggage van. There is no restriction on luggage in the brake van of passenger trains. But excess luggage in the owner's charge beyond the free allowance is charged at 1.5-times the stipulated amount as penalty, said the source.
