Indian Railway’s indigenous hi-tech project to ensure safe travel, stop train collisions by human error

Indian Railways has envisaged an investment of about ₹55,000 crore over next five years on multiple signaling technologies to enhance safety and security of passengers during train travel. Expanding the railway network capacity through signalling modernisation will do away with the need to lay new tracks by acquiring land.

The modernisation will be in the areas of Long Term Evolution (LTE), Optical Fibre System, Train Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), Automatic Block Signalling (ABS), Electronic Interlocking (EI) and Centralised Traffic Control.

Earlier on June 9, the Union Cabinet had allocated 5 MHz spectrum in 700 MHz band for the Railways which will be used for providing LTE based mobile train radio communication and advanced radio network on its route.
