When bullion traders travel by train to deliver items to clients in other cities, the railway protection force frequently seizes gold and silver jewellery. To get the material freed from the RPF, the dealers must go to great lengths. Now the traders, on the other hand, will no longer be in danger and will be able to transport gold and silver without worry.
The Nagpur Bullion Traders Association recently met with the RPF. Ashutosh Pandey, RPF commander of Central Railway’s Nagpur division, was present, as were association president Purushottam Kavle, secretary Rajesh Rokade, and other executive members.
The bullion traders said that they formed a vigi lance committee to inves tigate the business of gold and silver. On this, com mandant Pandey said that if the RPF seizes any valu able metal during the journey, it will inform the vigilance committee. The committee has to submit a report within 24 hours if the seized material was legitimate or illegitimate.
“If the seized material is legitimate, documents will have to be produced. And, if the material is ille gitimate then action will be taken,” Pandey said.
The courier agents of the association who will transport gold or silver by trains will be given an identity card and their list will be given to the association. At the time of checking, if the valuable metal is found in the scan ning machine, RPF will open it in a safe place.
