Railway to issue guidelines to prevent overloading

17 June 2017 | New Delhi


Railways will make suitable changes in the software of electronic weigh-in-motion bridges to ensure that the actual weight recorded of cargo and its displayed weight are the same, as per a recent notification.

Till the system improvement is implemented by the directorate concerned, all commercial staff may be suitably instructed to ensure that the data recorded in both the fields are same, said the notification.

The move follows surprise checks conducted by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) at electronic weigh-in motion bridges in South East Central Railway.

The CBI, which analysed data taken from the server at Ghatora, found that two data fields were being simultaneously created after electronically weighing the cargo. It said, this followed earlier discoveries when there were errors in software server that led to difference in the actual weight recorded and displayed weight.

The nodal directorate has been asked to make suitable changes in the software of electronic weigh-in motion bridges and issue suitable guidelines.

Incidentally, the vendors who supply the equipment are pre-qualified by Railway Development and Standards Organisation (RDSO).
