Right, and then they will require electronically scan-able Indian Voter Registration Card with your thumb imprint on that or some such, and we are still screwed
Thanks for that explanation... in some ways it is good to know that it is a deliberate attempt to produce a fair system, rather than daft rules for no gain... but as you say, crooks do seem to find a way to subvert best intentions!
Maybe a "no exchange or cancelation " of tickets would work, if the passengers name and id had to be printed on the ticket when issued... There can't be many Mr Singhs in India!
Actually, they used to print an identity document number on the ticket but at some point they discontinued that practice, I don;t recall why.
