2. The ladies special trains running in Metropolitan cities are being escorted by lady RPF constables.

3. The ladies compartments in suburban trains running in metropolitan cities are being escorted by RPF and GRP. Staff deployment is made during late night and early morning in such trains to ensure proper security to the lady passengers.

4. Security Help Line number 182 is made operational over Indian Railways for security related assistance to passengers in distress.

5. Regular drives are conducted to prevent entry of male passengers in compartments reserved for ladies, and if found, they are prosecuted under the provisions of Railways Act.

6. Surveillance is kept through CCTV cameras, provided at about 344 stations over Indian Railways, to ensure safety and security of passengers.

7. RPF holds regular coordination meetings with State Police at all levels to ensure proper registration and investigation of crime by GRP

8. Strengthening and upgradation of security infrastructure is an ongoing process.

A total of 344 railway stations have been provided with Close Circuit Television (CCTV) Cameras over Indian Railways. With a view to further strengthening security of passengers including women, 983 A1, A, B & C category railway stations have been nominated for installation of CCTV cameras with allocation of budget under Nirbhaya Fund.
