A phone call on 1512 from anywhere in India will land in the concerned Control Room of State Government Railway Police (GRP), thereby leading to swift response to attend the distress call. This service provides single number on a pan-India basis for GRP related issues.
The Delhi Police has also initiated interstate coordination meetings to evolve measures for passengers’ safety and redressal of grievances of the public and also to share information relevant to other states.
Delhi Police Commissioner Shri BS Bassi attended the function in addition to senior officials from Delhi Police and Union Ministry of Home Affairs.

Identity proof not required to book Tatkal ticket from Sept 1

Passengers booking tatkal train tickets would not be required to produce identity proof anymore as Railways  have decided to discontinue with this provision. 

The modified provision could come into effect by September 1. 

"Under the modified rules, there will be no need to furnish photocopy of proof of identity while booking Tatkal ticket from computerised reservation counter or to indicate its number at the time of booking of tatkal ticket at the counter or through internet," said a railway statement. 

However, one of the passengers has to produce the original proofs of identity during the journey to avoid being penalised. 

Officials said the decision to do away with producing identity card while purchasing tatkal ticket was taken to avoid any duplicity as the passengers had to produce identity proof at the time of the journey too. 

The present provision also led to harassment of those passengers carrying a different identity proof at the time of the journey than the one produced at the time of booking tickets, thus being penalised in the process, they said. 

Currently, passengers at the time of booking a ticket has to provide a photocopy of identity card which he/she will carry during the journey. 

The number of this identity card is indicated on the ticket as well as reservation chart and during the journey the passenger has to carry the same original proof of identity during the journey.

Southern Railway gives green signal for development projects in Kollam

Kundara and Eravipuram railway overbridges prioritised
Kollam (QLN): The construction wing of the Southern Railway has endorsed the railway development projects for the Kollam Parliamentary constituency announced by the Thiruvananthapuram Railway Division authorities earlier.
In their first review meeting with N.K. Premachandran, Kollam MP, here on Thursday, the construction wing officers decided to give top priority for constructing road overbridges across the railway tracks at Kundara and Eravipuram.
Mr. Premachandran had requested priority for these two projects in view of the difficulties endured by people in these areas when the level crossings get closed for the movement of the trains. He informed the officers that the situation in Kundara was serious as more trains will move along that stretch once the Punalur-Shencottah gauge conversion is completed.
The railway team was led by chief engineer of the construction wing, D.S. Chauhan. The team has also approved the second entry point project for the Kollam railway station.
The project will comprise a 135-metre-long foot overbridge from the second entry point connecting all the platforms of the station and also linking the NH 47 near Puthiyakavu temple at the existing entry point and the NH 208 near Craven LMS High School where the second entry point will be constructed.
The project will comprise a parking area where 750 vehicles can be parked at a time. There will be ticket booking offices too.
Mr. Chauhan informed the MP that once the work is tendered, the project will be completed in a time-bound manner. As part of modernising the railway station, lifts and escalators will be added. Officials said that the new design for the Perinad underpass has been approved.
The development plans for Kollam railway station include a 135-metre-long foot overbridge, parking area for 750 vehicles, and escalators.
