Western railways has inducted 232 Maharashtra State Security Corporation (MSSC) personnel and 97 women home guards who will, along with the railway protection force (RPF) personnel's help, will regulate the crowd on stations and foot over bridges at Mumbai local's railway stations.
The need for appointing more personnel on railway stations was felt by the authorities after the stampede at Elphinston railway station where 23 people died during rush hour.
These newly inducted personnel have been given three month training and have also gone through two days induction programme which will help them
conduct their work along with RPF personnel.
General Manager AK Gupta, Central Railways said that the number of RPF personnel available was not sufficient so until now the railway was supplementing the work by pulling out RPF personnel from other places which rendered few stations deserted. The railways could not afford to that thus extra forces were inducted.
"In the multidisciplinary audit after the Elphinston stampede, whichever stations were found to be extra crowded, these personnel will be stationed there. But crowd management will be the main work that these newly inducted personnel will do," said Gupta adding that this new induction will lead to 33 per cent increase in security at railway stations as well.
97 women home guards have also been inducted.
These women, right now, are being stationed at Andheri railway station and it will be replicated at Borivali, Bandra and Bhayander railway stations. These women home guards will also join forces with women RPF constables to form quick response teams to help in case of distress situation. However, their core work will be crowd management.
Talking about other security related issues like women safety, Additional Chief Security Commissioner Paramshiv said that helpline number 182 was much more popular than the app Eye Watch, that was launched by the railways last month.
Few months ago the helpline number used to receive about 80 to 90 calls every month. But now the number has gone up to 1000.
While the Eye Watch app has been downloaded about 2600 times although no help has been sought by people on this app.
During the induction process the General Manager asked the newly inducted personnel to also look out for runaway kids who land up in Mumbai.
"The RPF has been doing a commendable job in Mumbai by helping lost children rejoin their families. Since the newly inducted personnel would be on ground at stations it is expected that they will keep a lookout for the kids as well."
Central railway had recruited 259 MSSC personnel last month to supplement the efforts of RPF in their division.
