One Rail Mishap every five days in 2011


Indian Railways has averaged one accident every five days this year. There have been 40 “consequential” accidents in the first seven months of the year, from January to July, according to the latest statistics from the ministry of railways. Derailment (31 cases) accounted for a majority of the accidents, followed by collision (four), manned level-crossing accident (three), and two instances of fire on train.
A consequential train accident is loosely defined as one having serious repercussion in terms of either one, many or all of the following: loss of human life, human injury, loss of railway property, interruption to rail traffic.
