Press Release No. 27031-10-2020

दक्षिण पश्चिम रेलवे/ SOUTH WESTERN RAILWAY

प्रेस विज्ञप्ति/ Press Release No. 270  Dt: 30.10.2020


In view of the festival season, as directed by Shri Arun Kumar, DG/RPF/New Delhi and Shri R.S. Chauhan, IG-cum-Principal Chief Security Commissioner/South Western Railway, ‘Meri Saheli’ or NannaSakhi initiative has been launched by RPF of Bengaluru Division for security of women passengers in trains originating in Bengaluru Division. As the passenger carrying train services are being introduced in phased manner and special train services are being run in view of festival season, this initiative has been launched. Two all women RPF Shakti teams called the “Chenamma” team and “Abakka” team, named o­n the brave warrior queens of Karnataka and Southern India consisting of 20 lady RPF personnel led by a Lady Sub Inspector are deployed at key stations of Bengaluru and Yesvantpur.

The Concept of the Operation MySaheli or Nanna Sakhi is to ensure targeted deployment of lady RPF personnel to ensure that lady passengers travelling in trains do not face any security concerns and can have a happy and fulfilling journey.

Operation MySaheli was launched by the Director General RPF Sh. Arun Kumar last month where all zonal railways were directed to follow the initiative. Last year in 2019 the pilot project for the same was undertaken by Bangalore division  in Rani Chennamma Express from Bengaluru to Hubballi and this year the First Pilot was done two months ago by South Eastern Railway RPF headed by IG cum Principal Chief Security Commissioner Sh. D B Kasar and South Western Railway RPF headed by IG cum Principal Chief Security Commissioner Sh R S Chauhan o­n Howrah YPR express and after the successful completion and positive feedback of the same from lady passengers, it was rolled out to all divisions in the country.

Bengaluru Division RPF has rolled out the same Operation in view of enhanced women security to 10 trains moving all across India from Bengaluru and has since served and interacted with, provided security and taken written feedback from 5025 lady passengers and is continuing the same.

During the said initiative many cases of immediate responses from lady RPF personnel have helped lady passengers immensely and RPF has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from women of Karnataka who hail this initiative as a game changer in women security over Railways.

Threat mapping and vulnerability analysis of the lady passengers are done and Lady passengers travelling alone, with children, aged lady passengers with or without a caregiver are given special attention and the mobile number of the train escort party if present are shared for immediate assistance and they are made aware of the modus operendi of criminals, importance of being alert and to call RPF o­n All India RPF Security Helpline 182 for any assistance at any time.

RPF Bengaluru has also launched an extensive social media campaign to popularize the initiative among all lady passengers and make them aware of the immediate assistance being provided while they travel over South western Railways to make their journey happy and memorable.
