Train mishaps have "consistently declined" and have come down to 77 in 2011-12 from 335 in 2001-02 barring the ones at unmanned level crossings, the government said on Friday.
The new rules come amidst rising complaints about misuse of the Railway`s Tatkal scheme of booking tickets.
Passengers travelling on tatkal tickets must now carry their identity proof in original or face the prospect of being treated as ticket-less travelers and penalised.
