After this incidents, Indian Railways found a unique way to deal with theft, after which thieves could not steal the fan of the train even if they want. Let us know which method is this.

Indian Railways made such fans that cannot be used at home

The Indian Railways used new technology in view of the increasing cases of theft in trains. Engineers designed the fans in such a way that they cannot work at homes. You can use them only in trains. If you want to use these fans somewhere outside then it is not possible. Now you must be thinking that how can this be possible. Let us tell you what is the reason behind this.

Reason behind the train fans not working outside

Actually, we use two types of electricity in our homes. First AC (Alternative Current) and second DC (Direct Current), if AC electricity is being used in the house then the maximum power will be 220 volts. On the other hand, if DC is being used, then the power will be 5, 12 or 24 volts. While the fans installed in trains are made of 110 volts, which run only on DC Current. The DC power used in homes does not exceed 24 volts, so you cannot use these fans in your homes. Therefore, the fans installed in the train can run only in the train. Therefore it is useless for people to steal these fans.

Punishment for stealing fans in Trains

Let us tell you that the train is a national asset. To steal in this means to steal national property. On doing so, a case can be registered against the accused under Section 380 of the IPC. If found guilty, imprisonment of up to 7 years and fine will also be imposed. The point to be noted is that in such cases early bail is not even granted.
