Indian Railways needs to launch “Zero Accident Mission” with a definite time frame, said Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Saturday.

“This requires integrated approach involving use of cost effective advanced technology and properly trained manpower,” he said in his address at the valedictory session of the two-day international railway convention on advances in command, control and communications systems for main line, metro and high speed transit systems, a statement said.

Stressing that new advances in command, control and communication system can play a very vital role in evolving safe and secure operation environment on Indian Railways where there should be no scope of accidents even in case of human errors, Prabhu suggested the railways use an international forum like the international railway convention to gauge their standards.
