“Rail safety” is a curiously defined term in India.
A common theory heard from rail managers: In terms of accidents, the record of the Indian Railways stands at 0.20 accidents per million train kilometers. This, they say, is better than that of several European nations including Sweden, Belgium, Austria and Finland.
What is left unspoken – or deliberately concealed – is that the railways also have the dubious distinction of having remained at the top of the heap in the numbers of passenger fatalities.
facts are worrying. The railways have accounted for approximately three times the combined number of people killed in train accidents in Canada, United Kingdom, Germany and Japan in the last decade.
