Troubled with congestion at the entrances of Delhi’s major railway stations, Northern Railways has now outsourced traffic marshals who will be stationed outside the New Delhi, Old Delhi and Hazrat Nizamuddin stations from Monday, officials said. The teams have been deployed to clear unauthorised vendors and hawkers, prevent traffic jams in the vicinity and also assist people in parking their cars.
Railway officials said that initially 76 marshals will be deployed at the three stations with 34 at New Delhi, 26 at Old Delhi and 16 at Hazrat Nizamuddin. However, their numbers will be increased if required. “They will be deployed in two shifts and both entrances of the three stations are being covered at present. Based on their findings, we can increase the manpower or make changes as required,” said a senior railway officer. Read more
