Absolutely o­ne of the best customer services I have ever experienced.  Swift response. Thank you!”

-This was the positive feedback from a complainant whose grievance was redressed through RailMadad. o­n 29th April 2023, a complaint was lodged through RailMadad Helpline 139. The complainant, a lady passenger’s relative, had registered that the passenger o­nboard was missing/not responding to repeated calls and requested Railways to ensure her safety.  The RailMadad wing of Southern Railway sprung into action and through active liaison with field officials o­nboard like RPF, NR Cell, TTE, Train Batch Incharge confirmed that the said passenger is safe and continues her journey.  The entire process of registering the complaint and disposal took 41 minutes with the First Response time registered being 8 minutes.

In another instance, prompt medical assistance was extended to a sick passenger at the following station and the grievance was resolved in 22 minutes.

There are many such instances where the rail user receives timely assistance through RailMadad.  RailMadad application has been developed to enable Railway passengers to lodge complaints or give suggestions with the facility to track live status of complaints. The objective of this portal is to enhance the experience of Railways passengers with swift and satisfactory resolution of complaints.
