BMC to deploy marshals at various railway stations across Mumbai to implement COVID-19 norms

BMC is now planning to deploy 300 marshals at different railway stations across Mumbai.

The Mumbai suburban train system commenced its services from the 1st of February with restricted timings for all commuters, after almost a halt of 11 months due to the pandemic.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Mumbai's mayor was spotted travelling in a local train, to promulgate awareness about COVID-appropriate behaviour among travellers. The mayor was seen requesting food stall operators on stations and passengers to maintain required distance and regularly wash their hands.

According to the remarks of officials, since the 1st till the 14th of February, the Mumbai Division of Railways backed BMC, has fined 4618 train passengers for flouting the issued health norms against the contagious coronavirus. The authorized body has supposedly collected an overall penalty of ₹3,28,500 from passengers without masks while in local trains.

In accordance with the latest statistics, the Central line observes over 2 million travellers while the WR services are availed by 1.7 million commuters on a daily basis. The concerned authorities have further appealed to the offices in Mumbai to adopt graded attendance or slots, which will enable easier and safer travel.
