    Western Railway has always come up with great initiatives to support the “NARI SHAKTI”. Right from introducing the 1st ever dedicated ‘Ladies’ Special’ train in the world, setting up Baby Feeding Centers at stations, providing CCTV cameras & talk-back system inside ladies coaches. Further continuing in this series, it has now started another great initiative named “Meri Saheli” to provide more safety and security to women passengers during their entire journey.

    According to a press release issued by WR CPRO Sumit Thakur, the objective of the “Meri Saheli” initiative is to provide more safety and security of lady passengers travelling by trains in their entire journey from originating station till destination station. Under the initiative, a team of lady officer and staff have been formed. The team will visit all of the passenger coaches including ladies coaches to identify women passengers. Details of their journey like, coach number & seat number will be noted down by the team, especially if a lady is travelling alone in the train. 

    The passengers will be briefed about RPF Security Helpline No. 182, GRP Security Helpline No. 1512 and other precautions for example, not to take food from strangers, buying food from IRCTC authorized stalls only & taking care of luggage. The team will also advise them to feel free to contact the train escort party and dial 182 in case of any emergency. The details of the passengers will be conveyed to enroute Divisions & Zones to meet the passengers at their convenience till they reach their final destination. At the end of the journey, a feedback will be collected from the lady passengers regarding their journey experience and safety measures taken. 

    Thakur stated that this unique initiative has primarily introduced in two trains, Train No. 12955 Mumbai Central – Jaipur Superfast Express and Train No. 02925 Bandra Terminus – Amritsar Special train. The “Meri Saheli” initiative will not only provide safety & security to women passengers, but will also provide them mental peace and a comfortable & happy travelling experience
