Security arrangements at stations and in trains

Prevention and detection of crime and maintenance of law and order over Railways is the statutory responsibility of states.  For this purpose a separate wing of State police in the name of Government Railway Police (GRP) has been constituted by the States.  50 per cent cost on GRPs is shared by Railways with respective States. Railways, through the Railway Protection Force (RPF), are supplementing efforts of States in providing security over Railways. For supplementing efforts of States, security has been identified as one of the priority areas by Railways for strengthening and upgradation.  Efforts made to strengthen railway security in recent past include nomination of 202 stations for installation of Integrated Security System, procurement of modern security related equipment, setting up of an All India Security Help Line, networking of RPF posts and control rooms etc.
