“Currently there are railways claims tribunals which provide compensation in case of mishaps. One can claim compensation in case of accidents. Now we are offering additional service of insurance,” Railway Board Chairman A K Mittal said.

However, he said the insurance scheme is optional and passengers will be given the option at the time of booking tickets.
