SAFETY/PUNCTUALITY MEETING HELD IN NCR HQ: MONSOON PATROLLING TO BE ASSIDUOUSLY ENSURED

Today, o­n the 2nd of July, 2018, a safety and punctuality meeting was held in the Office of GM/NCR in the Vindhya Conference Hall, Chaired by GM/NCR Shri M.C. Chauhan. The meeting began with a discussion o­n the recent unusual incidents that took place in other railways and the lessons learnt from these. GM/NCR advised that all precautions should be taken in light of the lessons learnt in order to prevent any recurrence of similar incidents within the system of NCR. GM advised that it should be ensured at the loading/unloading points that all the doors of all the wagons being loaded/unloaded are properly secured and fastened so that they do not come lose and open en-route when the train is running. He instructed that a drive should be launched in order to ensure that no booms of level crossing gates can be opened manually while in ‘closed’ condition. He also advised that the track parameters & points and crossings in the yards of NCR should be checked thoroughly and any defects found to be rectified o­n priority. Along with this he advised that monsoon patrolling should be assiduously ensured with a special eye o­n miscreant activity o­n tracks. Discussing cleanliness, GM/NCR placed special emphasis o­n improving the cleanliness level of the stations of NCR-especially the A-1 and A Class-particularly in view of the monsoon season. He also advised that special attention to be paid to the maintenance of linen supplied in the trains belonging to NCR. In the same vein, GM advised that while doing repair works o­n stations/platforms, special emphasis should be placed o­n ensuring proper quality and aesthetics. It was decided in the meeting that those locations o­n the tracks where jerks were experienced during inspection, should be attended to o­n priority and proper packing of ballast to be ensured. Improving the rate of Through Rail Renewal (TRR), expediting the elimination of Unmanned Level Crossings (UMLCs), operationalizing of the smoke detectors installed in the coaches of Kanpur-New Delhi Shatabdi, completing the trimming of trees next to railway tracks were other issues which came up for discussion in the safety-part of the meeting. Speaking o­n punctuality of mail/express trains in NCR, GM/NCR advised that improvement in punctuality, keeping safety foremost, is a target that has to be met by all the divisions of NCR. GM further advised that o­ne of the important factors contributing to loss of punctuality was unwarranted Alarm Chain Pulling (ACP). He said that in order to nab those indulging in this malpractice, an analysis was needed to identify the hot-spots of unwarranted ACP. He advised that o­nce such spots are identified, RPF personnel in plainclothes should be deployed in order to nab the miscreants indulging in unwarranted ACP. GM advised that in order to reduce cattle run over cases, weed-killer should be sprayed regularly o­n the grass growing next to the tracks in order to deter cattle that come near the track to graze o­n the grass. Present in the meeting were all the PHODs/CHODs of NCR and the DRMs of the three Divisions of NCR-Allahabad, Agra and Jhansi who participated via videoconferencing.
