If GRP will do half the job they are assigned honestly we will find no beggars ,no chaos in the stations and the platforms will be much neat and parking much organised .please train them to do properly more  
Shri.Chandra Gehlotji has a very good suggestion as above. Presently, amongst so many other illegal activities, the GRP and/or RPF is busy pocketing money from small traders who are transporting large and bulky goods by train by placing them in the toilettes of the trains thus rendering them unuseable for train passengers, so also in aisles making it difficult to move inside the train within the compartment itself very often. more  
Ralilways must draw an action plan immeditely to merge both GRP & RPF & make a single police force which must be given a new name e.g. "INDIAN RAILWAYS POLICE FORCE(IRPF)" in order to weed out the confusion from the minds of passengers while reporting any crime within the jurisdiction of railways. This single police force of railways must be trained with state-of-the-art training methods. more  
on running train the mob/telephone nos of on duty GRP should be displaced conventionally, they should be approcheble instqantlly more  
I question: did GRP getting proper support from state police? Answer will reveal the final answer more
