SCR on track to face Monsoon -General Manager directs officials to take up concrete measures towards safety and punctuality


Shri P.K. Srivastava, General Manager, South Central Railway, held a high level review meeting with Principal Heads of Departments (PHODs) of the Zone, today i.e. 28th May 2014 at Rail Nilayam, Secunderabad. He simultaneously interacted with Divisional Railway Managers and other Branch Officers of all the six Divisions o­n the Zone viz., Secunderabad, Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Guntur, Guntakal and Nanded through video conferencing.
The General Manager reviewed the measures being taken to ensure safety of trains and railway assets during the ensuing monsoon season. He instructed the officials concerned to immediately take up drainage system improvement works across the railway tracks, especially at vulnerable locations so as to ensure no stagnation of rain water near the rail lines. He also advised trimming of tree branches, which are likely to infringe upon railway tracks or Over Head Electrical Traction equipments, before the o­nset of monsoon itself so as to avoid any possible damage and the resultant dislocation of rail services. He directed the official machinery to remain alert 24/7 and carryout regular inspections in the field, especially during night times.
Shri P.K. Srivastava reiterated that utmost priority shall be given towards safety and punctuality of train services. He undertook a detailed analysis of the punctuality performance in the last two months to identify specific reasons for train delays o­n a case to case basis. Concrete steps shall be initiated to rectify the identified deficiencies to ensure that punctuality is maintained, he stated. The General Manager also made a critical review of reasons for asset failures and corrective action being taken to attain zero-level of failures.
Towards improving passenger traffic volumes, Shri Srivastava instructed all the Divisional Railway Managers to intensify ticket checking drives, particularly in sections which show a drop in ticket sales. To effectively handle passenger rush at booking counters and to facilitate hassle-free ticket booking to the passengers, the General Manager desired that surveillance cameras be installed at key booking windows for continuous monitoring. Additional counters should be opened wherever the need arises, he added.
In the light of the unfortunate rail accident involving Gorakhdham Express in Uttar Pradesh  recently, Shri Srivastava emphasized that there shall be no compromise o­n safety in train running under any circumstances. In this connection, a special safety drive with focus o­n intensified checking of points and crossings at station area and the track structure has been launched o­n SCR.
