In a statement here, it said the Railway Board and Chief Traffic Manager, Southern Railway, Chennai, has issued instructions regarding checking of parcels and the same has been conveyed to the Sales Tax authorities earlier.

The Divisional Commercial Manager has also written to the Director/Central Excise Intelligence requesting them to avoid attempts to seize the consignments lying on the platforms and Parcel office premises in which tax evasion is expected, the railways said in a press release here.
