NEW DELHI: On the back of two train accidents within a month of Modi government taking charge, railway minister Sadanand Gowda is likely to announce a slew of measures in his July 8 budget to enhance passenger safety. The may include installing indigenous Train Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) on more routes to enable safe running of more trains on the same track even under low visibility.

As railways are facing a huge fund crunch, the plan support for the state-run transporter for special projects, can see a significant hike in the budget.

An official said the budget may propose to set up a dedicated safety fund. The fund is likely to be created by imposition of a safety cess on fares.
