Safety of Women Passengers in Trains

1. A few RPF personnel could be appointed to patrol the trains
2. People should be sensitised towards the needs of the fellow passengers
3. A separate helpline could be started to report such cases
4. Caught accused should be severely punished and made an example
5. An emergency alarm system could be installed in every compartment which could be used in case a women passenger is scared for a safety
6. People who have consumed excessive alcohol should not be allowed on the train
7. Trains could have a ladies only compartment
8. The contact number of the TTE on duty should be flashing in every coach inside the train, so that he could be contacted in case of such an emergency
9. Retired military personnel could be hired as security to patrol the moving trains
10. CCTV cameras could be installed in the coaches to keep an eye on the happenings
11. Women TTEs could be employed by the railways. more

It is all in rule books and nothing has improved. Even after complaining several timnes to the concerned numbers, let alone action - not even single response till the end of the journey is received. Where can the remedies be expected? All mind diverting tactics of railways to be more corrupt in all possible ways and it is only fleeting, cheating innocent passengers. more  
many times the offences are committed by security staff and railway staff.Hence the alarm bell should be put at several places in the compartment connected to all compartments so that the co-passengers at least will help more  
I am proposing a few suggestions may be reflected upon.... 1. If you recall, ladies feel more secure in general or reserved bogies. Even in retiring room too, they prefer common room. This is so, in spite of separate bogies and waiting rooms for them? 2. No lady dares to sit in reserved ladies bogie in locals in early morning or late night in Mumbai too. The metro which is supposed to be a more safe place in India. 3. Let me cite a few examples. Single lady travelling in full compartment gets down and boards in a compartment of lower category with more passengers during day travel too. In a train during late hours I found a few bogies empty. I went in. I thought now people may get in. Still nobody dared to do it. I was wondering when I found that my female students preferred to travel in a bus. I asked why do they spend 3/4 times more money than train. Further train takes longer time. The reply was night journey even with reservation is not safe. Unless they are in a group. A girl was to travel as per chart in my coupe in rajdhani express first AC, in which me was also travelling. The TTE waited for sometime to see if any other passenger joins. When he found nobody joining, he requested the lady to move in other coupe. 4. It is not theoretical aspect or as per some rule to be followed. Here I decry on computer who cannot think or is not humanitarian. The worst part is- in ladies compartment a few gents are always their, who never move out unless some authorised person does so. Ladies compartment is ok in night journey if no one is to detrain or entrain during 9 pm to 7am. 5. There is no point in attaching CCTV. It can find the criminal but not avoid misfortune. We believe in prevention is better than cure. And hence no police force can help during night. It is ok during day journey. 6. If we want to be serious declare / allot some births to only ladies and senior citizen. Older ones, lower births and ladies below 40 upper birth. 7. Advise female passengers to travel with modest outfits. This is again precaution not pointing out their weakness. 8. Once while travel we found that a person was constantly suggesting that we need to accommodate fellow passenger. And he was helping people not with proper ticket to sit. After many hours a TTE came. Then it was noticed that this person was also travelling without proper ticket. I had several time before that had asked that follow to tell his place. He did not respond properly. This was 3ac. 9. At least in AC bogies TTE must make frequent visits. Only it is not enough that he verified the new entrants. It is more pertinent to save ladies vulnerable. 10. There may be some hints written in the reserved lady bogies the way science teachers in science labs. Do's and Do nots. 11. The most important thing I suggest the government that media may restrain giving too much details of harassment. I am not blaming anyone. But truth is that we learn bad things very quickly than good things. In cinemas may be hero is doing good but juvenile takes up action of villains. Similarly, TV sops and media giving details encourage how things of his / her deeds can be realised. > On 01-Oct-2015, at 19:16, Ministry Of Railways wrote: > > > Find this email inappropriate - Unsubscribe > LocalCircles is now available on iOS and Android. > > Ministry Of Railways > Ministry Of Railways posted a message in "Make Railways Better". > Subject: Safety of Women Passengers in Trains - Addl Inputs. > Here are some of the key inputs from you to improve Safety of Women Passengers in Railways.

This is good and enough more  
The policy is good and I suggest the railways that please establish and give priority on the accountability of the hired security staff. Actually some hired security staff is just like "id ka chand" and this makes the railway journey a bad experience for the travellers and tourists. Actually we can see the some security staffs either gossipping or enjoying their journey. They forget that if they are committed to protect us from uncertain events. I am not saying about all the staffs but "ek gandi machhli sare talab ko ganda kar deti hai" Please establish the high level of accountability to reduce these events more
