EASTERN RAILWAY COMMITTED TO IMPLEMENT SAFETY MEASURES TO STOP FLAME COOKING AND REHEATING IN STATION PREMISES

Kolkata, February 11, 2024:

Indian Railway is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of its passengers across all its stations. In line with this commitment, Eastern Railway under the abled guidance of Shri Milind K Deouskar General Manager Eastern Railway is pleased to announce a significant initiative aimed at enhancing safety standards at suburban stations with heavy footfall.

Recognizing the inherent safety risks associated with flame cooking and reheating in station premises, Eastern Railway has undertaken a proactive approach to address this concern. As part of this initiative, Eastern Railway are implementing measures to cease flame cooking and reheating activities within station premises, particularly at suburban stations where heavy footfall poses an impending danger.

The safety of passengers is paramount, and Eastern Railway believe that eliminating flame cooking and reheating activities will significantly reduce the risk of accidents and ensure a safer environment for all commuters.

Relying on Para 6.1 of Catering Policy 2017 Eastern Railway is appealing all the static units for transitioning away from traditional cooking methods, thereby prioritizing safety and promoting environmental sustainability.

Furthermore, Eastern Railway is conducting a comprehensive awareness campaign to sensitize passengers and rail users about the importance of safety measures and the rationale behind this initiative. Through posters, announcements, and interactive sessions, Eastern Railway aims to educate passengers as well as vendors at Railway premises about the potential risks associated with flame cooking .

However, amidst the backdrop of exploding urbanization in Kolkata suburbs, Eastern Railway has observed the emergence of illegal vending stalls engaging in flame cooking activities. These unauthorized practices not only pose significant safety risks but also undermine the noble endeavor towards enhancing passenger safety.

A section of such illegal stall owners are vocal against Eastern Railway’s commitment for putting an end to flame cooking at Railway premises for the safety of passengers. But it is expected that the passengers and freight customers will raise their voices against such breaking of safety norms endangering passenger and freight traffic.

Shri Kausik Mitra Chief Public Relations Officer Eastern Railway stated “We thank all our passengers for their cooperation and understanding as we work together to create a safer and more enjoyable travel experience for everyone.”
