In Indian railways, there are three types of ticket examiners: Ticket Collectors (TCs), Traveling Ticket Examiners (TTEs), and Ticket Collectors (TCs). TCs check tickets in the train, while TTEs inspect platform tickets. TTEs are usually Indian Railway employees, but their duties and responsibilities vary. Here, we will briefly compare the tasks of each type.
The differences between TC and TT scales are subtle, but important for model railroading. TC scale, or t able to op, is a niche model railroading scale, a 12 mm-gauge scale, halfway between the N and HO scales. TC scale trains are longer than those of HO scale, while TTE trains are shorter than their HO counterparts.
When a TC examiner inspects a TC, they check all of the passengers’ tickets and mark those who can board. During the night, TTEs lock coaches to prevent passengers from falling asleep. In a TT, the TTE is assigned to seat number seven in a sleeper coach or A1 coach berth number five in superfast trains. TTEs also make sure that seats are assigned according to tickets, as they do in a TTE.
What is the difference between TC and TT? is a simple question with multiple answers. TC stands for “transfer credit” and TT stands for “transfer of money”. In other words, TC refers to a type of electronic currency that is used to send money. TT stands for “transfer of funds”.
Unlike TT, a telegraphic transfer requires a recipient’s name and other information. In the 19th century, telegraphic transfers involved a person entering data into a bank, and the operator sent a message via a cable message to the recipient. Despite this, the technology of telegraphic transfer has changed since then. Today, funds can move through cable networks and cloud-based applications.
TC compensation is fairly fair in Indian railways, and TCs also receive several allowances. TCs receive HRA, which is 24 percent of base wage (X class) and 16 percent of Y-class city salary. The minimum HRA rate is Rs. 3,600/ in a Y-class city. The basic gross income of a TTE is somewhere between Rs. 48k and 52k after the seventh pay commission.
