UNIQUE INITIATIVE TAKEN BY MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS FOR

PROTECTION OF CHILDREN COMING IN CONTACT WITH RAILWAYS

 

Kolkata, 14th June, 2018:

 

Ministry of Railways in collaboration with National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) launched an Awareness Campaign o­n protection of children who are passengers, abandoned, trafficked and separated from family coming in contact with railways. The main objective of organizing this campaign is to redress the issue of protection of such distressed children across the entire railway system and to make aware of it amongst all stake holders, vendors, porters etc.

 

South Eastern Railway, as a part of this Awareness Campaign has already implemented Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and started functioning Child Help Desk at its four railway stations viz. Kharagpur, Ranchi, Tatanagar and Rourkela. Meanwhile, S E Railway has already rescued 296 destitute children (boys and girls) from its four divisions i.e. Kharagpur, Adra, Chakradharpur and Ranchi. Out of them, 59 children were handed over to their parents and 27 children were handed over to the Child Welfare Centre while 10 children were handed over to the Govt. Railway Police and Local Police Stations.

 

Railway is o­ne of the most transit points for the traffickers who send children to the different cities for the purpose of slavery and exploitation of children. To prevent such misdeeds, Ministry of Railway has already implemented Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for railways and opened Child Help Desk at 88 stations. Apart from this, Child Help Desk will also be set up at 174 more stations across the entire railway network in the country for providing care and rehabilitation to the distressed children coming to contact with railways.By the end of this year the number of stations having Child Help Desk will be increased substantially. RPF personnel, GRP and other commercial groups who are at the stations round the clock are keeping constant vigil for child trafficking as a part of Awareness Campaign o­n protection of children in contact with railways.
