Railways to follow twin strategy in safety and security


New Delhi: February 24, 2010

The Minister of Railways, Kumari Mamata Banerjee today announced that
her Ministry will follow a twin strategy of adopting the highest level
of technology and pressing into force well-trained manpower, as
emphasized in Vision 2020 for safety and security.

Presenting the Railway Budget for 2010-11 in Parliament, the Minister
said that safety and security never sleeps and zero tolerance for
accidents is our vision and mission. She said 17,000 trains run
everyday carrying 18 million passengers over 64,015 route- kms. In
such a vast operation and due to technical problems, sabotage, fog,
rail roko, natural disaster and human failure, there are some
unfortunate incidents of accidents.

The Minister said Railways has to go in for new, cutting-edge
equipment to prevent accidents. Anti-collision device (ACD) and Train
Protection Warning System (TPWS) are two such devices. She said ACD
has already been installed on Northern Frontier Railway and is now
proposed to be extended to three more Zonal Railways. The Minister
said that four projects of TPWS covering 828 route-kms for improving
safety and preventing collision accidents will be implemented during
the year. Railways are also developing crashworthy coaches and
locomotives and will provide automatic fire and smoke detection system
in 20 pairs of long-distance trains as pilot project.

The Minister said that accidents at unmanned level crossings are a
source of deep concern to all. Even now, there are about 17,000
unmanned level crossings. She said that manning of around 3,000 level
crossings was approved in 2009-10 and a further 1,000 level crossings
will be taken up next year. A special drive in this regard is being
launched so that in the coming five years, all the unmanned LCs are
manned, she added.

Kumari Mamata Banerjee said Railways would construct more
under-passes, limited height sub-ways besides Rail Over Bridges (ROBs)
and Rail Under Bridges (RUBs). She said Railways will explore the
possibility of using jute geo-textiles wherever the soil formation of
railway track is unstable and weak.

The Minister said that law and order being a state subject, security
cannot be ensured without the whole-hearted cooperation of the State
Governments. She said, in fact, Railways bear 50 per cent of the cost
of State Government Railway Police. (GRP). She appealed to the people
not to target the Railways during any local issue and frequent rail
rooks agitation.

The Minister said her Ministry has to strengthen the Railway
Protection Force(RPF) as an organization and to modernize RPF, full
support is being given. Railways will bring a comprehensive bill for
providing security to passengers. She said as security is an important
area, Railways has decided to involve ex-servicemen to strengthen
Railway Protection Force.

Referring to security of women passengers, she said it will be
improved by raising 12 companies of women RPF personnel to be named
'Mahila Vahini'. Railway Protection Special Force(RPSF) will also be
strengthened and priority will be given to women especially those
belonging to minorities, SC/ST, OBC and economically backward classes.
