Ensure zero tolerance to railway accidents, Kharge tells officials

ALLAHABAD: Union minister of Railways MallikarjunKharge has called upon all managers of zonal railways to ensure 'zero tolerance to accidents' in Indian Railways.

In his message to the general managers, Kharge said, "Safety culture is essential for any organization to achieve good results. With sustained efforts in the last decade, Indian Railways has been able to reduce the number of accidents per million train kilometers from 0.44 in 2003-04 to 0.13 in 2012-13."

"To make Indian Railways free of accidents, a combination of advance technological aids and high quality training to employees has to be worked upon. As most of the fatalities occur at unmanned level crossings, efforts are on to develop these crossings wherein they will be monitored strictly," he added.

Night inspections will be done to make the policy effective and field inspection of vulnerable areas like parcel/luggage offices will be made secure to avoid any untoward accidents like fire. Whereas loco pilots will also be consistently monitored. Divisional railway managers (DRMs) at the divisional levels and general managers (GMs) at the zonal level will be responsible for ensuring train safety in their respective areas.
