 Why in news

  • Three days after the tragic crash involving a goods train and Kanchanjunga Express in West Bengal that left 10 passengers dead and 43 injured, Eastern Railway has banned issuance of Travel Authority (TA-912) authorising loco pilots to cross signals in red during signal failures


  • The TA 912, a document that the Indian Railways uses to keep trains moving in case of signal failure

  • When a signal failure in the automatic system occurs, the rules demand that the station master issue a written pass to the driver to cross the red signals

  • This written authority is called PLCT (paper line clear ticket) T/A 912.

  • According to railway officials, when such a document (T/A 912) is given, the loco pilot needs to approach the red signal at 10 kmph, bring his train to a stop as close as possible to the rear of the signal, wait for 1 minute during day time and 2 minutes at night at the signal, and then proceed with extreme caution at speed not exceeding 15 kmph in good visibility conditions and 10 kmph in poor visibility.

  • The locopilot should also ensure that a minimum distance of 150 metres or two clear OHE span is maintained between his train and the preceding train or any obstruction on the line
