Improvement in Train announcement system and indicators for coach position on stations
Moreover, many times, indicators showing coach position will be off and in case if these are on even though your coach will come at least 1-2 indicators either side of the platform. This create last minute havoc and increases the chances of accidents.
Many times we get our confirm ticket in extra coach and it shows on ticket like EX or SE (in case of sleeper class) and BE or BX (in case of AC class). but we see different number showing on indicator and when train comes, we see a different number altogether on coach or many a times there will not be any number displayed.
My request is that this announcement system should be made automated and it should be so clear and loud that can be heard at any corner of related platform. Also, regular monitoring should be done for indicators and also be checked related to actual positioning when train arrives at platform.
Also, every coach of each train should show the clear coach number so that last minute confusion can be avoided.
Still, there are many stations where proper indicators are not installed and due to this it becomes difficult to identify the location of a coach in which passenger wants to get in. more
