Track-monitoring system introduced in Bangalore Division

Track-monitoring system introduced in Bangalore Division

Railway Bangalore Division has completely computerised its track-monitoring system, becoming the first division to do so in South-Western Railways and the fourth division in the country.

Disclosing this to Express, Divisional Senior Engineer (Coordination), V Haribabu, said now that the computerisation was over, they could monitor any activity happening around 1,000 km of the railway tracks belonging to Bangalore division.

“At the time of derailment or any other crisis, we were unable to take any decisions unless we went to the spot and assessed various things, including visibility and availability of manpower. Now everything can be known through the net and we can take decisions on the spot,” he said.

He added that with computerisation, employees could not skip work after marking attendance. Elaborating, he said the system enabled the authorities to see how many people were working.

This way, they have done away with 15 registers. Also, with a bit of calculation, the authorities can asses how much work can be done by each individual and ensure that it is done.

As there are many vacancies in the department, computerisation will enable the authorities to move the surplus manpower from one place to another as per the need. Even the stores have been computerised. This enables tracking the actual stock position of the accessories and the place where they are.

“Now it will not be easy to pass the blame on someone else whenever something goes wrong as everything and [all the] actions of all the employees in the division, including the track inspectors, artisans, gangmen and officers, are documented,” Haribabu said

The other three division that are completely computerised are Agra, Secunderabad and Salem.
