 Section 147 of Railway act prescribes that:-

1. If any person enters upon or into any part of a railway without lawful authority he shall be punishable with imprisonment for a term which may be extended to six months or with a fine which may extend to one thousand rupees or with both.

Provided that in the absence of special and adequate reasons to the contrary to be mentioned in the judgment of the court, such punishment shall not be less than a fine of five hundred rupees.

2. Any person referred to in sub-section(1) may be removed from the railway by any railway servant or by any other person whom such railway servant may call to his aid.

However, over Indian Railways, especially over suburban sections deaths occur due to trespassing.

Suggest solutions for reducing trespassing of Railway tracks.

Death of Human and cattle are an serious problem which has not been addressed during past. In a very clerical Manner they have build hundreds of Safety walls along the tracks, speciaPly in urban areas like Mumbai, Thane, Kalyan & Vasai. These walls are 3-4 times re-constructed & repaired in short time of 9-10 years. These walls becomes a hurdle while rescuing a accident person. I will strongly suggest to construct Metal Grills using wastes Tracks and other material.
Passengers avoid that narrow fobs constructed during Past era, however Govt. inintiated Wide fobs during 1998-03. I suggest all narrow fobs to be Converted in 10-12 Meters vide fob.
