Prabhu was asked why Metro hours in Kolkata can’t be extended beyond 10.30 pm when he replied: “Metro Railway works in two shifts at the moment and the timings cant be extended immediately.”
Kolkata (KOAA): Railway minister Suresh Prabhu suggested that Kolkata adopt a staggered hours scheme for office goers to flatten the peak Metro period. In January this year, Prabhu had met Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis and suggested the same for Mumbai in order to reduce the rush in the suburban transportation system. Countries like Singapore have adopted to avoid traffic congestion.
Prabhu was asked why Metro hours in Kolkata can’t be extended beyond 10.30 pm when he replied: “Metro Railway works in two shifts at the moment and the timings cant be extended immediately. Since there isnt quickfix solution to this issue, I would suggest a staggered hours scheme for Kolkata. This would reduce the load during peak hours.”
A staggered hour scheme entails different timings of reporting to work and leaving for home. While some offices could ask employees to report at 8 am and work till 4 pm, others can make them start at 9 and end at 5 pm. In countries like Singapore, even individual organizations have staggered timings for separate sets of employees. Even the International Labour Office (ILO) in Geneva has a document on this scheme.
