Plan to make Railway Hospital into Health Unit condemned at Podanur
Coimbatore / Kannur: About 250 railway employees attached to the Southern Railway Mazdoor Union (SRMU) staged a demonstration in front of the Railway Hospital at Podanur on Tuesday, condemning railways for their proposed plan to make that hospital into a health unit.
The protesters said that in a recent visit to the hospital, a senior railway hospital authority had reportedly suggested that a health unit would be sufficient to meet the requirements here.

said that facilities, doctors and availability of staff in the hospital would be reduced if it was made a health unit.
Employees said that there were more than 5,000 families of railway employees and retired railway employees residing in Podanur and nearby areas and that the hospital was catering to all their medical needs.
They said that on degrading it, their families would have to get treated in nearby private hospitals or travel far to reach the nearest railway hospital.
SRMU’s Salem Division and district level representatives also participated in the protest.
Railway staff in Kannur to stage protest today
Likewise, the Kannur branch of the All India Station Masters’ Association (AISMA) has urged the authorities to end the delay in providing apron facilities at the Kannur railway station to ensure cleanliness at the railway premises. Railway staff were being exposed to unhygienic conditions at the railway premises, the association said.
A press release issued by the AISMA branch secretary here said that the association would observe September 16 as protest day. Railway staff members here would wear badges as part of the protest on Wednesday.
The press release said that though the issue of health hazards caused by filth on railway yards at the station was brought to the notice of the Railway authorities concerned, no steps were taken to implement the demand for providing the apron with good drainage that would allow an effective cleaning of the yards.
The association highlighted the plight of shunting staff working with their feet and hands drenched in rain water mixed with filth on the yards. The plight of train examination and coach cleaning staff exposed to unhygienic conditions at the station and to diseases is not different, the release added.

COIMBATORE: A power outage in Karamadai during inspection of the recently electrified section between Coimbatore North and Mettupalayam stations on Thursday, forced officials to wait till a diesel engine was called in to take them back to the city.
A safety report on the trial run is likely to be submitted by railways officials within a month, and if found favourable, the electric train will start operating between the route. Once this is done, the 45 minute journey is likely to be reduced by at least 15 minutes.
There was a power outage

in Karamadai when officials were on their return journey from Mettupalayam to Coimbatore on Thursday afternoon. With no power, they could not start the train. The locomotive in which the officials were travelling in had to be attached to a diesel engine so that they could return to the city.
Engineers inspected the track on Thursday afternoon to identify the exact point at which short-circuit occurred. "The engineers have been examining the entire stretch by foot and have narrowed down their examination to a 2km stretch. We suspect that it might be a fault that developed due to the rain," said divisional railway manager for Salem division, Shubhranshu. "It is a minor problem and will be rectified soon," he added.
The section was inspected by divisional railway manager and Commissioner of Railway Safety, Southern Circle, S K Mittal on Thursday morning. The journey from Coimbatore to Mettupalayam took three hours because they stopped at every bridge, rail-crossing and curve to check the quality of the electric lines. "Otherwise the trial was successful," said the DRM. The team travelled in an observation cart attached to the existing diesel locomotive.
Officials said that a detailed safety report would be submitted by the commissioner of railway safety. "This would take between two weeks and a month. If the report is favourable we could start operations immediately," said a railways official. Work on the electrification of lines was complete in March and has also been inspected once.
