ECoR tips for rail passengers' safety



In the face of rising incidence of loot of passengers after drugging them, the East Coast Railways (ECoR) has launched a massive awareness programme among rail users and travellers.

The RPF unit of Khurda Road Division conducted a programme at Berhampur railway station and distributed info-leaflets to passengers making them aware on activities of drug peddlers, snatchers and robbers moving in trains and stations.

A mock rescue of a passenger drugged by miscreants in a train was also demonstrated. A street play ‘Bhul Hoigala’ was also presented, educating people how miscreants befriend innocent passengers, offer intoxicated eatable items and then loot them. The Railway security force has urged passengers not to take food, drinks and prasad which may have intoxicating elements from any co-passenger. It has also asked people not to buy railway tickets from the touts or any unauthorised agent.

Passengers have been advised to immediately inform security personnel if they suspect the activities of anybody as well as unclaimed luggage in trains and platforms.

Meanwhile, ECoR has announced three more special trains between Puri and Santragachhi in Kolkata in view of increase in passenger flow during Durga Puja.

The Santragachhi-Puri Special train will leave Santragachhi at 7 pm on October 10 and arrive at Puri at 4.15 am on October 11. In the return direction, the train will leave Puri at 6.20 pm on October 11 and reach Santragachhi at 3.10 am on October 12.

The second Santragachhi-Puri Special train will leave Santragachhi at 08.30 am on October 13 and arrive at Puri at 5.10 pm on the same day. In return direction, it will leave Puri at 11 pm on October 13 and reach Santragachhi at 8.05 am next day.

The third train will leave Santragachhi at 7 pm on October 17 and arrive at Puri at 4.15 am on October 18. In the return direction, it will leave Puri at 5.30 am on October 18 and arrive at Santragachhi at 2.30 pm on the same day. The trains will have stoppages at Khurda Road, Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Jajpur-Keonjhar Road, Bhadrak, Balasore and Kharagpur between Puri and Santragachhi.

Railways likely to declare 78-day bonus

NEW DELHI: Despite financial constraint, Railways is likely to announce 78-day wages as bonus, same as last year, for its employees for 2012-13. 

"The proposal for declaring 78-day productivity-linked bonus for railway employees is being finalised with railway unions and it will go to the Cabinet for a final decision," a senior Railway Ministry official said. 

Productivity-linked bonus is paid to railway employees each year before the Dussehra festival. 

Over 12.60 lakh non-gazetted railway employees will benefit from the Cabinet decision on the bonus. 

"We have demanded more than 78-day bonus for this year as Railways had given the 78-day bonus to its employees last year also. But, Railway proposed 73 day bonus citing financial difficulty," an office-bearer of the National Federation of Indian Railwaymen told PTI.

He said the Federation did not agree and insisted for not less than last year's bonus and finally it was agreed upon for 78 days. 

Given the financial crunch, Railways would be hard-pressed to give more bonus than last time, the Railway official said, adding "the bonus would be declared after the Cabinet nod." 

Though there are a total of 13.26 lakh railway employees, 1.26 lakh are not covered under the bonus. 

The financial implication of payment of 78 days' bonus to railway employees has been estimated to be over Rs 1000 crore. The wage calculation ceiling prescribed for payment of bonus to eligible non-gazetted railway employees is Rs 3,500 per month and an employee is likely to get about Rs 8,975 as this year's bonus.
