Department of Telecommunications (DoT) through their letter dated 27th February 2019 has informed that Indian Railways has proposed to install an Ultra-high-speed LTE based communication corridor along their network for Train-Ground and Train-Train communication. In this connection Indian Railways has requested DoT to reserve 15 MHz of spectrum in 700 MHz band for the purpose and to begin with 10 MHz to be allocated free of cost as the proposal is devoid of any commercial gain, but only for enhancing security and passenger amenities. Through the said letter, DoT has also requested TRAI to provide recommendations on administrative allotment of spectrum to Indian Railways and the quantum, price, appropriate frequency band (including 450-470 MHz band) and any other related issue.

A Consultation Paper on “Allotment of Spectrum to Indian Railways for Public Safety and Security Services” has been released to discuss the issues involved. Written comments on the issues raised in the Consultation Paper are invited from the stakeholders by 22nd July 2019 and counter-comments by 5th August 2019.

For any clarification / information Shri S.T. Abbas, Advisor (Networks, Spectrum & Licensing), TRAI may be contacted at Telephone Number +91-11-23210481.

RFID embedding in the engine and last coach of the train would be more reliable. When a train enters a station, RFID reader can the read the Train's detail and broadcast it on the signboards. also for the Train Masters along the entire route. This will greatly reduce the man work across the crossing and gauge changing mans. Pilots can concentrate on driving train rather than keeping eye on Walkie Talkies.

Theft and general safety of vulnerable populations like women, children and elderly people should be given utmost importance. facilities granted by govt should be easily accessible by the general public. Railway catering should be made hygienic and liked by passengers in terms of sensory evaluation.

"devoid of any commercial gain" ???? how would Railway going to get the cost for network setup?
Again, will the network be 5G ready? Without a proper roadmap, i think, it would be wastage of money. However, I don't see any issue if TRAI reserves the requested frequencies for Railway. If it can be done for Military, why not for Railways.

people with or without ticket should not be allowed to sit on the floor of the train and restrict the walking other other passengers.
CCTV is iimportant for any misconduct with any passenger relating to the seats allotment. no body should be forced out of there reserved seats.

passengers without reservation should strictly not be allowed in reserved compartments, there is lot of inconvenience to the reserved passengers and there are lot of security issues due to this problem.
