After a series of accidents that have hit railways, the railway board is examining the recommendations of the high-level safety review committee (led by Anil Kakodkar) on their feasibility and implementation.
Railway board meetings with the safety directorate are held regularly and it is expected that a detailed examination of these recommendations will be completed by the month end.
The railways ministry had set up a high-level committee under former Atomic Energy Commission chairman Anil Kakodkar. Former DMRC chief E Sreedharan was appointed as an adviser to the panel. The committee submitted its report in 2012 and made various recommendations for improving railway safety which needed an outlay of R1 lakh crore over five years.
The committee had made 106 recommendations that are under examination by the Railway Board. The recommendations pertain to general safety matters, organisational structure, empowerment at the working level, vacancies in critical safety category, shortage of critical safety spares, human resources development with emphasis on education and training research ecosystem on the Indian Railways and safety architecture on the Indian Railways.
Of R1 lakh crore, the Kakodkar committee had suggested R20,000 crore each from safety cess, budgetary support, surplus land monetisation and loan, with the rest coming from the dividend deferment mode.

The topmost priority of any safety committee should be to give proper rest to loco pilots.Without which everything will go in vain.
