In order to improve the safety of the passengers, Railways is planning to come up with an integrated security system which will consist of electronic surveillance of vulnerable stations through Close Circuit Television Camera Network. Also, anti-sabotage checks have been finalized to strengthen surveillance mechanism over 202 sensitive Railway stations, the Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha told Lok Sabha today.

The Railways has also come up with a Security Helpline Number ‘182’ to help people in distress. “Security Helpline Number has been operational at all zonal railways to enable all rail passengers including ladies in distress to seek security related assistance round the clock, “ Sinha said.

To empower the RPF to create a more effective security mechanism over Indian Railways, a proposal for amendment in the RPF Act has been moved by the Ministry of Railways with the approval of the Ministries of Law and Justice and Home Affairs, Minister added.
