Challenges and Solutions

Before RailMadad came into existence, Passenger Grievance Redressal on Indian Railways was beset by a number of shortcomings which have now been taken care of.

  • Top-down approach
  • Unique complaint registration
  • No real-time redressal
  • Wastage of manpower
  • No convergence
  • Registration process cumbersome
  • Earlier systems not linked with National Train Enquiry System (NTES)
  • Non-homogenous heads/subheads
  • Multiple Helplines
  • MIS reports
  • Average Disposal time and rate

The high popularity of RailMadad with citizens can be attributed to the following factors:

  1. Ease of living/travelling: Single portal for assistance, inquiry and grievance redressal while travelling on Indian Railways.
  2. Ease of accessibility/Convergence: Accessible through all channels – Web, App, Phone (voice & IVRS), SMS, Social Media, Manual Dak.
  3. Ease of registering complaints: Minimum inputs required to lodge complaint; modular heads/subheads across channels.
  4. Redressal on fast forward/De-Layering: Complaint is transferred directly to concerned field unit.
  5. Accountability: Unique CRN (Complaint Registration Number) generated for every complaint; facility to track complaint and give feedback on redressal.
  6. Citizen-Empowerment: Citizen charter implemented through RailMadad.
  7. Digital India: Linked with existing ticketing systems of Indian Railways, like NTES, Passenger Reservation System (PRS),Unreserved Ticketing System (UTS)and Integrated Coaching Management Systems (ICMS).
  8. Proper utilization of Manpower: Due to direct assignment of complaints to concerned entities and availability of integrated MIS, Railways have been able to save over 27,720 man-hours per month. These man hours were earlier wasted in communicating complaints to the concerned point of contact, and in compiling MIS reports on grievances across channels.
