India: Railways Minister says volunteers should guard unmanned crossings

12 Jan

Reform minded Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu has told India’s parliament that volunteers are to be sought to help protect presently unmanned level crossings. Additionally, help from police officers will be solicited via Chiefs of Police. The move comes at a time of tight budgets precluding recruitment of additional crossing keepers and pressure on the ambitious plans to eliminate all unmanned level crossings nationwide. In addition, there is extra focus on preventing line-of-route trespass.
