                                                                                            Action by
1.0     JAGIROAD:
        SWR : New SWR whose date of issue is 08.09.2005 and brought into force on
        14.12.05. Amendment Slip 1 issued on 23.1.07 reg. ACD.
1.1     Signal Failure Register : Last 3 months signal failures are as follows :            CSTE,
           October – 12 nos.                                                                DRM/LMG
           November – 7 nos.
           December – 7 nos.
           January (till date) – 4 nos.
1.2     Night Inspection register : Last night inspection conducted on 8.1.08 by SS/JID but COM,
        private no. not exchanged with the control as per record.                           DRM/LMG

1.3     Safety Equipments : All safety equipments as per SWR were available. First Aid      CSO
        Box filled and sealed on 26.12.07 by Sr.DMO/JID.
1.4     Circular Book : Circular Book was checked and found that safety circular no. 24 COM, CSO,
        was available in the register but circulars were not kept in serial order.      DRM/LMG

1.5     The BOS of staff as on 1.4.2007 was displayed. There is excess operation of ASM CPO,
        in scale Rs. 5500-9000/-. One post of Porter in scale Rs.2650-3200/- may be filled DRM/LMG
1.6     Analysis of manpower requirement may be carried out.                                CPO,
1.7     PME Registers was checked and no staff was found overdue, but competency            CPO,
        certificate and PME certificate number was not mentioned in the register.           DRM/LMG

1.8     Staff Grievance Register shows the regular visit of Welfare Inspector. It was not CPO,
        noted on 24.10.07 that payment of OTA has not been paid. But action taken by the DRM/LMG
        division has not been entered in the Staff Grievance Register by the Welfare
        Inspector in his next visit. This should be ensured.
1.9     The family declaration of staff for the year 2007 has not been submitted by the     CPO,
        station staff for drawal of Pass/PTOs etc.                                          DRM/LMG

1.10    Regular Leave regularization from the division may be ensured.                      CPO,
1.11    Health Unit:                                                                        CMD,
        Critical cases are being referred to HQ for thorough investigation. Needs to be     DRM/LMG
1.12    With the changed traffic & staff pattern, the water requirement should be worked    PCE
        out for all major stations and corrective action taken. This will include water     DRM/LMG
        consumption requirement, pumping capacity, storage capacity, tube well
        availability and pipeline layout etc. The blue print should by ready by 31.03.08.
1.13    All stations should have overall master plan and no ad-hoc inputs should be given to PCE
        change the infrastructure without being part of the overall plan.                    DRM/LMG

1.14    Engineering camp coach with the track machine was in deplorable condition. It was CME
        overdue POH by at least 2 years. The coach requirement should be worked out and DRM/LMG
        spare coaches provided for sending coaches for maintenance periodically.
1.15    Various types of fittings, engineering and other departments are being kept as spare. PCE
        However, their consumption is very minimal. Large amount of money is locked up DRM/LMG
        in these items. All such materials should be offered as scrap if the consumption for
        the last few years does not justify their stacking because being surplus and not
1.16    There are large numbers of permanent engineering speed restrictions. Railways are PCE
        suffering huge losses every day due to detention of trains and excess fuel DRM/LMG
        consumption. Investments required should be worked out to eliminate these
1.17   With the increased electronic using equipments, there is need to install a proper CSTE
       maintenance system and procedure and monitor down-time of all the important DRM/LMG
       passenger amenity items.
1.18   At Guwahati, PC based amenity items are not being monitored in a systematic
       manner by Sr.DCM/Sr.DSTE. Nor this position is being relayed to DRM. As a
       result, many of the equipments are either mal-functioning or not in working order.
       These includes –
1.19   (i)        Digital announcement system is not functioning since 15.07.07 for
                  software problem.
       (ii)       Telephonic enquiry is mal-functioning regularly. Out of 10 lines, 2 – 4       CSTE,
                  lines remain out of order everyday. Further, the passenger response is too    CCM,
                  long i.e. around 12 – 15 seconds. Many callers, therefore, disconnect the     DRM/LMG
                  line presuming some defect. This is tarnishing the image of the Railway.
       (iii)      The terminal repeater installed in the current reservation counter has been
       (iv)       The communication room in PRS is in very bad state. Modems are lying
                  here and there and wires are hanging in a haphazard manner. This is
                  causing safety problem.
       Besides repairing/installing all the defective equipments above, proper system of
       monitoring may be developed so that such a situation as above does not arise in
1.20   Jagiroad Sub-station : There is one pole-mounted transformer of capacity 150 KVA CEE,
       (11 KV/415 volt). The maximum load is to the tune of 135 KVA. This transformer DRM/LMG
       is to be conveniently replaced by a transformer of higher capacity say, 250 KVA, so
       that in future it may cater for the enhanced load.
1.21   There are 4 nos. earth-pits. Transformer Neutral Point (LT) and transformer tank are CEE,
       to be earthed separately at two separate and distinct points. 4 nos. earth-pits are to DRM/LMG
       be marked properly for their easy identification. As per the records available, the
       earth resistance values were checked on 25.1.2006 and 24.1.2007 and the value was
       2 ohms for each earth-pipe, as entered in the register. However, on the inscription
       plate the value has been written as 1.6 ohm. This discrepancy is to be eliminated.
1.22   Old Pump House: There is one submersible pump of 7.5 HP capacity. It is started          CEE,
       with start delta starter. During the inspection the pump was running. This starter       DRM/LMG
       panel is required to be grouted properly on the floor. The discharged water is
       supplied to the railway quarters and consuming points directly without taking it first
       on the overhead water tank. This was causing fluctuation in loading and the load
       current was fluctuating between 4 and 10 amp. Arrangement is to be made for
       taking the discharged water first to an overhead water tank so that there is no stress
       on the pump.
1.23   No chairs have been provided in the waiting rooms. Cement benches are not useful.        PCE,
1.24   There is no permanent arrangement for cleaning the waiting rooms.                        DRM/LMG
1.25   Loading records are not maintained properly in a single register. Too many registers CCM,
       are maintained.                                                                      DRM/LMG

1.26   Loading and realization of freight was checked at random. When requisition fee and       CCM,
       freight are collected correctly, stacking charge in on case was collected on the day     DRM/LMG
       of loading on 2.12.07 instead of on the day of requisition on 30.11.07.
1.27   PCT for CPK and KKET are not available.                                                  CCM,
1.28   Petty Repair Book at JID Station: In the petty repair book at JID, the SE/W/JID has      PCE,
       commented that he has complied with all the complaints, but it is not clear whether      DRM/LMG
       the occupants are satisfied with the work done. ADEN / JID is advised to inspect
         the attended complaints and record his observations in petty repair book.
1.29     Upkeep of the station: The Station Building and Station Area are maintained neat
         and clean. All the passenger amenities are available at the station.
1.30     An assessment should be made regarding the number of CST/9 sleepers released            PCE,
         during the past ¾ years and their subsequent disposal.                                  DRM/LMG

2.16   There is a go-down behind the station building. This should be demolished.                PCE,
2.17   A box of RMS is placed in the middle of concourse/waiting hall. It should be              PCE,
       ensured that such boxes are kept at one end without blocking the passage.                 DRM/LMG

2.18   There are lot of wires hanging in haphazard manner. These cables should be dressed        DRM/LMG
2.19   One inspection note of TIA was seen at DML which contained entries dated 1919. DRM/LMG
       These should be preserved as a Heritage item.
2.20   Lubrication of Fish-plated joints has been done after the monsoon, but ERC in Line        PCE,
       No.2 are not greased which should also be greased after monsoon, every year.              DRM/LMG

2.21   In Line No.1, the sleeper spacing is not proper and a number of sleepers are out of PCE,
       square. Such track cannot be maintained effectively with track machines and DRM/LMG
       therefore, squaring and spacing of sleepers should be planned systematically for all
       gangs. Greasing of ERC and Lubrication of Fish-plated joints should also be
       included in such plan.
2.22   Joint Points & Crossing inspection is being done as per schedule. Inspection done PCE,
       during 2nd half of the current year have not been recorded in the standard inspection DRM/LMG
       book. All the inspections should be recorded in the standard inspection booklet.
2.23   Battery maintenance: No record is kept since March,2007. A sample check CSTE,
       was carried out on Cell No. 41, 47, 51 and the specific gravity measured DRM/LMG
       1200, 1225 and 1190 but it was uniformly recorded 1220 for all the cells.

       battery room.
2.24   Cable meggaring : (i) At none of the station has been done since                      CSTE,
       commissioning in 2003. At Dharamtul only readings are recorded in 2005,               DRM/LMG
       without any signature of the supervisors who did it. Sectional SE mentioned
       the problem of disconnection memo which has not been brought to the
       notice of Divisional Officers.
2.25   Maintenance is not done as per schedule at the station and no one was aware           CSTE,
       of it.                                                                                DRM/LMG

2.26   There is no record of maintenance and monitoring of signaling equipment.              CSTE,
2.27   Panel testing has not been done since commissioning and no one was aware              CSTE,
       of the testing as per selection table.                                                DRM/LMG

2.28   Disconnection memo of 06.01.08 was checked and timing of dis-connection               CSTE,
       and re-connection were not mentioned which indicate the casual way of                 DRM/LMG
       working by maintenance staff.
2.29   The average running time of DG set and fuel consumption data are not kept             CSTE,
       at the station.                                                                       DRM/LMG

3.1    Safety Equipments : Safety Equipments were available as per SWR and kept in
       proper way. First Aid Box was sealed on 7.1.08.
3.2    Signal failure Register: During the last 3 months signal failure particulars are as   CSTE,
       follows:                                                                              DRM/LMG

       Dec.’07 – 9 nos.
       Jan’08 - 4 nos. (till date)
3.3    Safety Circulars : Safety circulars were not kept in proper order in the register. It COM,
       should be maintained in serial order date-wise acknowledging the facts by station DRM/LMG
3.4    The BOS as on 27.12.06b was found. The revised BOS may be issued immediately.         CPO,
3.5    There is one pole mounted 25 KVA transformer ( 11 KV/415 volt). The earth pipes       CEE,
       were embedded on the ground but there is no brickwork around those. Proper            DRM/LMG
       brickwork is to be done and earth resistance values are to be measured and
3.6    It is a IOC terminal. Decanting of one rake of SKO from Rajbandh was in progress.     COM,
       ASM performs all commercial functions here including oil Siding work. IOC             DRM/LMG

       At Hojai Station 20 lakhs PCTs are available as surplus since UTS has been               DRM/LMG
       installed at this station. These PCTs are no more required and disposal of these may
       be arranged to avoid any misuse of these tickets.
6.17   This Out post is equipped with one DOT Phone, however one Railway phone is also          CSTE, CSC,
       urgently required. This Out post has not been allotted with any Type-II quarter for      DRM/LMG
       dwelling of Out post In-charge and other officers.
       RPF Out Post/Hojai was found in neat and disciplined order.
6.18   This P. S. is not provided with Railway Phone & DOT Phone is also disconnected           CSTE, CSC,
       due to non payment of bill. There is no any quarter and barrack allotted to this P. S.   DRM/LMG
       for dwelling of GRP officer and staff. This P. S. is conducting track patrolling at
       their respective jurisdiction.
6.19   One small room for keeping consumable store for sanitation of station premises           DRM/LMG
       needs to be provided.
6.20   The Health Unit building is very old and in deplorable condition. It needs complete      PCE,
       renovation.                                                                              DRM/LMG
7.0    LUMDING:
7.1    Lumding yard needs to be simplified. Basically, it is amalgamation of 2 yards, one       PCE, COM,
       of MG which is a dead end and one of BG which is basically a roadside station.           CCM,
       Urgent steps needs to be taken to rationalize these yards.                               DRM/LMG

7.2    While the weighing machine at the station was found OK, it is found that the check
       is not being done as a regular measure. Sr. DME/D/LMG who is responsible for
       check and monitor should make out a schedule and monitor.

7.3    In general there is no proper practice of making GDR at the station where the goods
       train originate in empty condition or loaded condition after unloading and loading
       on the basis of the previous existing BPC. No register is being maintained with
       ASM. The instruction in this regard is clear and not being followed. There is no
       check being done by the LI/CWI at these points and also not monitored by
       Divisional Hdqrs. This requires a regular check and counseling to the drivers.

7.4    The coaches in the division being utilised for camp coach by Engineering staff is
       not being sent for either POH or pit line attention whenever it is due. At present the
       coaches are overdue POH and overdue Pit line attention. This should be planned.
7.5   The complaint about the non-availability of material in the depot in Lumding
      division was discussed. It is essential that the responsibility of reaching the material,
      as per the requirement, to the depot should be owned by Stores. DMM of the
      division should monitor about the system and the availability of material in the
      Coaching & Wagon Depot in the division. The problem regarding non-availability
      of the supply if required can be brought to the notice of the Hdqrs. by DMM who is
      responsible for this.

11.1.8    Defective Gauge-cum-level should be replaced. ADEN was told that a set of HS         PCE,
          Flags contains 2 Red HSF and One Green HSF. Accordingly, one more Red HSF            DRM/LMG
          should be provided to the gang. Similar set should be available with each gang /
          LC / Trolley and flagman etc.
11.1.9    It was represented by one of the Gangman of Gang No.9 at KM.84/9-10 that he has CPO,
          not been supplied with Medical Card. An exercise be made to find out if there are DRM/LMG
          any staff who have not been provided with Medical Cards and arrangements made
          for issue of the same early.
11.1.10   The Gangmen were not wearing Luminous Jacket and shoes.                              PCE,
11.1.11   SSE/P.Way & PI were both not available which is extremely serious.                   PCE,
11.1.12   The gang did not have medical card, there were only 10 quarters for 18 gangmen.      CPO,
          None of them had shoes and luminescent vest safety jackets.                          DRM/LMG
          Senior staff were not aware of the safety VRS scheme. DRM should circulate
          about this scheme. There appears to be serious need of personnel officers and
          welfare inspector to visit each and every gang.
11.1.13   Uniform was supplied in 2007. Trousers are yet to be supplied. It was assessed that CPO,
          Gangman, who are of 50 yrs age, are not aware of the special Voluntary DRM/LMG
          Retirement Scheme.

   13.0         GENERAL:
   13.1         High Speed Run between HJI - LMG:

                The Inspection Special has been rum on a speed run at maximum permissible speed
                of 100kmph from HJI to LMG. Peak/km recorded by OMS-2000 during this run is
                less than 1, which classifies the track maintenance as Very Good.
   13.2         There is need to examine the deployment of Commercial Clerk since loading and CCM,
                unloading of goods is not a regular feature at almost all the stations. The concept of DRM/LMG
                the mobile goods clerk can be used.
   13.3         There may be additional requirement of coaching clerk and it may be advantageous CPO,
                to give overtime to selected staff instead of posting additional goods clerk for the DRM/LMG
                extended hours of goods shed working.

   13.4         Utilization of Pointsmen/Porters at various roadside stations indicated that the staff CCM,
                may be underutilized and put to hardship because of posting at remote areas unless DRM/LMG
                there is signal failure or any other abnormality.
13.5      Attaching a 'chip’ to the wagons entering N F Railway or a barcode/repeater to CCM, COM,
          every wagon may result in better utilization of the Trains clerks and will facilitate DRM/LMG
13.6      Concrete station name boards on the either side of the platform need to be relocated        PCE, COM,
          with the extension of platforms.                                                            All DRMs

          Proper lighting needs to be arranged for these name boards for passengers’
          convenience at night from moving trains.
13.7      At number of roadside stations water pumps are available and syntex tanks provided PCE,
          for storage of drinking water. However, the staff has to collect water from the hand- All DRMs
          pumps. Division should make arrangement to supply water through the pipe line to
          individual quarters.
13.8      Number of stations have been provided with battery charging facility to take care of        CEE,
          trains stabled during bunds and agitations by providing poles in the yard hindering         All DRMs
          the movement of staff and chances of hurting passengers.
          Such inputs should be discouraged. If at all emergency charging points are to be
          provided they should be on the platform site and not in any yard.
13.9      Figures of non-rail head PRS indicate reduction in number of passengers in the CCM,
          current year as compared to last year uniformly at all places. This needs to be All DRMs
          seriously examined and analysis done.
13.10     The need to curtail the time of issue of Pass.                                              CPO,

        b) Fusee Signal, ACP Key and Carriage key of Guard’s Personal equipment found
        short. To be improved.

13.17   Digital Announcement System at GHY station is out of order since July’07. Action   CSTE,
        to be taken to monitor the same and get it set right.                              DRM/LMG

13.20   Maintenance of Signaling gears :- is not being carried out as per the CSTE,
        maintenance schedule, incidentally none of the staff in the entire section DRM/LMG
        including Officers (ASTE & DSTE) were aware of it. In the name of
        maintenance only brake down maintenance is being done with no record of
        the work done. The proper system of maintenance and its record keeping
        needs to be introduced being prime activity of S&T Officers & Supervisors.
        Sr.DSTE and the officers below should involve in monitoring and ensuring
        the proper maintenance of signaling system.
13.21   Interlocking integrity test of panels has not been carried at any of the           CSTE,
        stations, although it has been instructed number of times and incidentally,        DRM/LMG
        ASTE & DSTE were also not aware of it. Communication gap between
        Sr.DSTE and Officers & Supervisors Down the level was visible as none of
        the maintenance instruction and guidelines have been passed on to them.
        Monitoring of safety maintenance of panel testing should be taken on hand
        by division immediately to complete all arrears and due in current year.

13.22   Cables are used for track circuit connection instead of GI wire which is           CSTE,
        causing theft and miscreant activity. No more use of cable now to be made          DRM/LMG
        for track connection and instead of it standard GI wire / rope to be used.

13.23   Quad cable is being provided in BPB-LMG control section. Indication to             CSTE,
        monitor its continuity should be provided at station. The arrangement was          DRM/LMG
        explained to Sr.DSTE, so that any break due to theft is immediately known.

13.24   Double lock should be provided on separate bolts with properly painted as CSTE,
        operating and S&T lock. The Joint Procedural Order issued by COM & DRM/LMG
        CSTE regarding Opening and closing of Relay room is not properly
        introduced which is causing difficulties in opening of Relay room and it was
        experienced during the inspection also.
13.25       S&T Officers are not carrying out complete inspection of S&T installation,             CSTE,
            neither they are aware of the inspection guidelines issued for them. A proper          DRM/LMG
            supervision and check of the maintenance activities cannot be ensured
            unless Officers also carry out proper and complete inspection of the

          fees fixed by the Administration. Also in two cases undercharges have been
          detected while checking vendor’s license fees with agreement. Sri J.C.Basak,
          Misc. goods stall, has been paying Rs 139.00 per month whereas the license
          agreement made in 2004-058 between Railway administration and the vendor
          shows Rs.313.00 as rent and Rs.4.50 as water charges. Sri A.K. Dey, tea stall
