Train compartments of Central Railway to get seats near door back

Published on : Wednesday, August 16, 2017

cr-759After hearing long complaints from the daily commuters, Central Railway, one of the busiest railway domestic network, is now planning to put back the seats that were removed to create space to stand.



The changes were made to luggage and women’s compartments of five local trains in December 2015, after a commuter, Bhavesh Nakate, fell off an overcrowded train.



The Ministry Of Railways had formed a Passenger Safety Committee, which suggested the seat adjacent to the door be removed and additional grab handles be put.



The daily passengers have at the present complained to the railway officials, in claiming that they don’t have enough space to sit and they should go back to the earlier seating arrangement. Ravinder Goyal, Divisional Railway Manager of Central Railways, said that the Commuters prefer the earlier arrangements to stand.



While, on an average, there are about 300 commuters fit into a fully loaded each and every compartment during wee hours. But now the modified seating arrangement allowed around 500 commuters to board.




The Central railway authorities were hoping that the new plans for the seating and standing arrangements would be an achievement and wanted to expand it to the rest of the local train compartments.
