Pakistan Railways Set to Digitize Locomotive Records within Two Months

Ministry of Railways Initiates Digital Transformation for Locomotive Records and Fuel Management System”
Shahid Ashraf Tarar, the Caretaker Minister for Railways, led a meeting at the Railways Headquarters in Lahore, outlining plans to digitize locomotive records and implement a Fuel Management System. This initiative aims to streamline record-keeping and enhance operational efficiency within the railway system.
During the meeting, Tarar emphasized the importance of modernizing facilities in Railways hospitals nationwide. He urged officials to expedite the transition to the Fuel Management System within two weeks and prioritize digitalizing locomotive records within two months.
Additionally, the decision was made to open all railway hospitals to the general public starting next month. Furthermore, plans were set in motion to transfer all electricity meters in Railways colonies to distribution companies.
Efforts were highlighted to expand the network of express trains to 96 by December 25, improving transportation services for commuters across the country. Railway authorities aim to provide enhanced facilities at stations and on trains, including waiting rooms, vending stalls, reservation services, passenger insurance, and the reinstatement of help desks.
Regarding punctuality, there has been a notable improvement, with the overall on-time performance of trains rising from 76 to 93 percent in just three months. This progress is attributed to stringent measures and close monitoring implemented by Pakistan Railways at both divisional and ministry levels.
Pakistan Railways is also gearing up to introduce the Train Driver Assistant System (TDAS), designed to provide train drivers with enhanced visibility of railway tracks, especially during adverse weather conditions like dense smog and fog. The TDAS is anticipated to significantly boost safety, punctuality, and operational efficiency, preventing potential accidents and ensuring smoother train travel in low-visibility scenarios.
