The Indian Railways is ready to go through major developments in the sector that will hopefully change the structure and functioning for the betterment of the society. The Railway Board Chairman conducted a full review of the stations like the North Central Railway, North Eastern Railway in Gorakhpur and East Central Railway at Hijapur in Bihar.
A trained security team will be recruited to bring in order the chaos at the railway stations. The efforts of the board, however, would not be restricted to the personnel. Efforts to install CCTVs and a dedicated call line are being made, as well. An effective solution to the crimes at the station, the CCTV footage will help in their investigation easily.
Passengers travelling in railways have now been given a special helpline wherein they could just dial 182, if around a crime scene and a call would be connected to the RPF control room nearest to the offence being committed. This will ensure the timely arrival of security forces.
With the traffic at every station nearly thrice of what is deemed to be normal, the Railway Board also hopes to bring in improvements in this direction, since double the amount of funds have been allocated to the building of tracks.
The Railways Board has been actively recruiting constables and aims at making as many as 17,000 constables a part of their team in the next three months. State Governments have also been invited to keep their respective proposals in order to strengthen the structure
