The interface will help women select the train they are travelling in and press the emergency button in case they sense any threat to their safety. The details of the train will be directly sent to the RPF control room, which can arrange for help to the distressed woman at the next station. On pushing the button, coach position will automatically flash in control room, which will avoid confusion among the security staffs. The system will work on both online and offline mode, according to railway officials.
According to Abhijit Patil, a representative of the mobile application developers, 90 per cent of the work on the application is completed.
RPF personnel and women commuter groups have already met the app developers to ensure all aspects concerning security of women were discussed.
