Staff felicitated for showing alertness & safety bulletin “Jagrukta” released

Today, o­n the 4thJune, 2018, weekly punctuality/safety meeting was held in the Office of GM/NCR in the Vindhya Conference Hall, Chaired by GM/NCR Shri M.C. Chauhan. 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. The meeting began with GM/NCR felicitating the 15 employees including loco pilots, assistant loco pilots, pointsman, porter and other staff. He said that, we are proud of our such employees, who showed alertness while performing their duty and their exemplary timely action is really commendable. He asked awardees to communicate the importance of timely action to their colleagues and subordinates. Safety Bulletin ‘Jagrukta’ was also released o­n the occasion by General Manager.

While speaking during the meeting General Manager said, “NCR had done well to improve punctuality by 13.1% in the last financial year; further improvement in punctuality could be achieved by a multipronged approach consisting of enhanced operational monitoring, reduction in asset failures, reduction in response time to asset failures. He said that the timely planning of crew and their proper management will definitely improve the operational efficiency. While discussing about finding solutions to external factors adversely affecting punctuality-in particular unwarranted Alarm Chain Pulling (ACP) Cattle Run Over (CRO) cases and boom breakage at level crossings, he suggested that there is a need to have out of box thinking. He advised that a joint action by Commercial and Security staff to nab the culprits indulging in alarm chain pulling will be effective.” It was also decided that in order to check CRO cases, the villagers and cattle owners of the vulnerable sections must be sensitized about the possible repercussions and Shri Chauhan suggested that Mobile Video Van should also be utilized for the purpose. He also suggested that there is a need to discourage the practice of throwing waste food products along the track from pantry cars of trains. He said that, in order to control the boom breakage cases, exemplary punishment and necessary penal action be ensured against offenders. While discussing about implementation of ‘Mission Raftaar’ Shri Chauhan emphasized o­n the need for time bound implementation of projects associated with it. He also said that the block timings allotted for maintenance and capacity enhancement works should be optimally utilized.

While discussing about the safety issues,GM/NCR said that we have committed to eliminate all unmanned level crossings by September 2018, and it should be strictly ensured that the time-lines are met and necessary actions must be taken by the concerned in this regard. He said proper lighting arrangements should be made at manned level crossings and wherever necessary Solar lighting system be utilized. He also desired that the ‘IP Based Cameras’ be installed o­n any vulnerable heavy traffic manned level crossing o­n trial basis and based o­n that it could be extended to other places. He emphasized o­n the need of regular inspections and surprise checks especially during night for checking alertness of staff. He also instructed for trimming the tree branches along the track, possibly infringing the tracks and affecting the train movement in case of thunderstorm. He also asked that all precautions be ensured regarding fire safety. He also expressed the need to conduct proper survey of Loop lines o­n stations and ensure safety through proper maintenance and if needed necessary rail renewal be done.

Reducing Loco Failures, checking brake binding cases, reducing signal failures, reducing response and restoration time to a minimum in case of asset failures, improving cleanliness o­n important stations, supply of clean linen, effectively controlling unauthorized vending through continuous vigilant action were the other subjects that came up for discussion.
