Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on Sunday informed that platform surfing was successfully tested at Mumbai Central Station. Platform surfing will help the Railway police to reach the passengers in need, even on crowded platforms in a relatively short period of time. Besides, it will also enable the fastest reach of the police from one place to another on the Railway station.
Reportedly, Goyal has asked his ministry officials recently to develop a system on the line of air ticket booking that will allow passengers to see the details of vacant seats, berths online. The railway ministry will take up the issue with the Centre for Rail Information System (CRIS) to work out a solution so that passengers can get live availability of seats for booking.
Earlier today, Goyal shared the information regarding Central Railways which is planning to install blue light at the gate of coaches which will guide the passengers about the train movement. Read More
