Indian Railways / gold chain theft

1 India Review updated:

I have travelled on Indian Railwas by Awantika Express on 21/4/08 on PNR Coach No S5/0001 in Three Tyre Cleeper.
My chain was stolen in Mumbai to Virar Area.FIR was inadequately taken by some head constable Babulal Singh .The report of FIR does not appear to be appropriat.The police was constantly asking to get down at Surat where as they are suppose to register the complaint.Ticket Checker on duty was also not very cooperative.
I have lost Rs20, 000.Moreover Railway TC and Railway Police refused to take FRI.
I request authorities to look in to matter. I quote the Railway Rules as under:
A Prescribed FIR Form is available in the Timetable or with TTEs/Guards or GRP escort. After filling it up, the Form may be handed over to one of the officials viz., TTE, Guard or GRP escort for registration of the report at the next Police Station.
This rule was explained to Railway Ticket Checker as well as Railway Police but they did not understand this.
Can some one help me in this regard.

    Dear Sir,
    This has reference to your letter no. BB/ADRM(S)/ Notes dated 5th March, 2002 by Mr. W.K. Prdhan, Additional Divisional Railway. Manager (Suburban), Mumbai CST I regret to inform you that you have not taken any interest regarding fast local halt as well as provision of Reservation Counter at Vikhroli Station due to traditional method of managing the issues in today’s era of change. However, we thank you for considering and materializing the suggestions like installation of PCOs at Railway Station. Computerized Season Ticket Window at Vikhroli (East) and installation of Coupon Validating Machine at Vikhroli (East) Booking Office. We, the residents of Vikhroli really don’t understand that your answer “Most of the locals get halt at Ghatkoper. since Vikhroli is the next station, It would not be desirable to have another half of the fast trains at Vikhroli.” is worth or meaningful, whereas most of the residents of Vikhroli are working class and middle class people always traveling by train, and it makes really a sense for an overly populated area like Vikhroli (Service Provider is Railway), if all fast trains halt at Vikhroli Station as well as there is no need of justification to provide Reservation Center at Vikhroli (as stated in your aforesaid letter) due to its varied-linked nature. Ghatkopar is considered as business class area whereas Vikhroli belongs to middle class area where travelers/consumers are striving to get prompt services. Computerized Reservation Centre is located at Thane, Mulund and Bhandup Stations which are alternate stations, then why cannot there be a Computerized Reservation Centre at Vikhroli Station? Computerization is really meaningful when number of data or services to be provided is abundant, i.e. more customers, consumers or travelers. This is a need of hours in today’s era. Please don’t ignore Vikhroli Suburban’s burning problem considering its day by day increasing wide-ranging consumers/residents. In fact, Computerized Reservation Centre is the necessity at all stations and it helps to ease the pressure during emergency. Since the whole setup is ready i.e. Computers and Local Area Network facility, only additions of Wide Area Network would serve the purpose for both the Railways and the Public (the why getting delayed?).
    Forwarded for your kind consideration and necessary action on behalf of Vikhroli Residents’ Association.

    Thanking you in anticipation

    This is to bring to the kind notice of the Railway Authority that it is very difficult and dangerous for ladies to get down from the fast train at Bhandup, as the platform is very low. Somebody may even go into the tracks, while getting down or my even fracture the legs.
    Hope the authorities will give first priority to this and repair the platform to the level of the train.
    Kindly take action before anybody meets with an accident.
    Thanks in advance for quick action.
