No more chain pulling in trains


  • The railway ministry has decided to do away with these chains. An official said railways had incurred a loss of Rs 3000 crore because trains ran late with the indiscriminate chain-pulling for no good reason.
  • The alternative arrangement for this, the mobile phone number of the driver and assistant driver could be displayed in coaches, so passengers can call in case of an emergency.
  • Also, one employee carrying a walkie-talkie would be present for every three coaches in each train.
