Motormen blame the increased stress with the rising traffic as one of the major cause of such incidents. A motorman said, “The number of signals and the frequency has increased drastically over the last one decade. There is tremendous pressure to reach the destination on time also keeping a tab on the signals which are after every 100 metres.”
Central Railway has also started yoga classes for  motormen at the Kurla training institute as part of their  training to help beat stress.
