The Indian railways has reportedly taken up the task of enhancing the security measures to the women passengers travelling in ladies compartment.
According to the information available, the railway authorities have decided to place the ladies compartment in the middle of the train as they feel more secure besides installing CC Cameras and window meshes inside the compartment. It is also decided to paint the ladies compartment with special colours to enable women folk to identify their bogey.
The development came following a decision taken by a Committee formed to protect the women passengers at the national level. It may be recalled that almost every train has a special compartment exclusively for women passengers. But of late, it was found that not many women are utilising it as it was placed at the tail end of the train.
