The Ministry of Railways, in coordination with Ministry of Women and Child Development and National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, have issued a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) which includes a protocol for rescue of young children found abandoned on railway stations or trafficked through trains, the Railway Press release said. The SOP has been implemented on 20 railway stations and it is been decided to implement it on additional 15 railway stations.
Accordingly, Ministry of Women and Child Development in coordination with Ministry of Railways, have set up Child Help Desks/Kiosks at 20 nominated Railway Stations which are manned by representatives of the organization nominated by Ministry of Women and Child Development. The runaway/missing/abandoned children are rescued from stations by Child Help Group comprising of Station Superintendent/Station Master, Station House Officer (SHO)/ Government Railway Police (GRP), Inspector/Railway Protection Force (RPF), Sr. Section Engineer (Works), and in trains by GRP, RPF, Travelling Ticket Examiner (TTE) and Ticket Collector (TC). The children so rescued are handed over to these Child Help Desks/Kiosks and in turn to Child Welfare Committee (CWC) in coordination with GRP. In addition, RPF supplements the efforts of GRP of the State concerned in rescuing the children from trafficking and to ensure safety and security of children at stations.
