Railways to Advance Security with Facial Recognition System at Major Stations

Share post:

PATNA (Metro Rail News): Indian Railways is set to implement a cutting-edge security initiative by installing a Facial Recognition System (FRS) powered by artificial intelligence technology at major stations, including Patna Junction within the Danapur division of the ECR ( East Central Railway). The move aims to bolster security by linking the system to a database of crimes committed in and around the railway premises.

Birendra Kumar, the Chief Public Relation Officer (CPRO) of ECR, highlighted the railway’s commitment to ensuring comprehensive passenger safety during travel and at platforms. Patna Junction, known for its high passenger footfall of 3 to 4 lakh daily, is a focal point for passenger trains. Kumar emphasized that the railway plans to provide top-tier security similar to airport standards at major stations. The introduction of FRS is expected to serve as a deterrent against criminal activities on station premises.

After the successful installation of FRS technology at all major stations across the nation, it would be a significant security breakthrough for the railways, according to Railway Board sources. Even a team from the RPF had already developed a security plan following the Mumbai attacks on 26/11. However, the proposal was unable to be carried out for a variety of reasons.

Around 200 stations have been earmarked by the railway for a comprehensive security overhaul, with some falling within the ECR’s jurisdiction. In light of rising threats from various quarters like terrorists, Maoist groups, harassment of women passengers, and habitual offenders, there is an urgent need for enhanced security measures such as FRS, luggage scanners, sniffer dogs, and random luggage checks, particularly in Bihar and Jharkhand.

The implementation of FRS holds the potential to significantly enhance security at railway stations, contributing to safer journeys for passengers and curbing criminal activities within the station premises.
