Senior central railway official transferred

MUMBAI: The railway board recently transferred Central Railway (CR)'s divisional railway manager (DRM) for Mumbai Rahul Jain even before the completion of his term. An officer of the 1979 batch of Indian Railway Service of Mechanical Engineers, Jain had taken charge 16 months ago. Said a source, "Ideally, a DRM is allowed to complete a two-year term. Jain has been transferred before the completion of his tenure."

Speculation is rife that Jain was transferred because of a series of breakdowns in train services in the Mumbai division. Jain is among 19 DRMs who have been transferred. Mukesh Nigam, an officer of the 1984 batch of the Indian Rail Transport Service, will replace Jain. Nigam was the executive director (coaching), railway board. Jain's new posting will be as DRM, Hubli. His transfer order comes against the backdrop of a local's derailment at CST on July 13.

In May, the board transferred two officials-chief electrical engineer and chief signal and telecom engineer- for the dip in CR's performance after a fire damaged Kurla and Vidyavihar signalling cabins. , resulting in disruption of services for three consecutive days. A few days ago, SS Bhatia, senior section engineer, was suspended by the Central Railway (CR) on the grounds that the he had pressurised a vegetable vendor into giving misleading statements before the commissioner of railway safety, probing the reasons in to Vangani incident that injured three commuters.
