China has announced a new set of penalties for those who are caught smoking on high-speed trains. New regulations will allow authorities to ban the violator for a period of six months. Further, the full list of those banned from the trains will be published on online ticket booking sites, the government has said.
The new penalties were published in a document jointly issued by China’s National Development and Reform Commission, the Supreme People’s Court and other government departments.
The new rules will come into effect from May, and will apply to high-speed trains and to non-smoking areas of other trains. Once banned, the person would not be allowed to purchase tickets. If a banned person is caught travelling on with tickets bought using fake IDs or in someone else’s name, they would be blocked from buying tickets till they pay a fine. Read More…
