The engineers of East Coast Railway have decided to hold deliberations on how elephant deaths on tracks and accidents at level crossings can be reduced. At the 11th zonal executive meeting of East Coast Railway Engineers Association (ECoREA) held here on Sunday, the association decided to holds its 5th annual general meeting (AGM) on May 5 during which a safety seminar on “Role of Engineers on Efficient & Safe Operation of Railway Systems” will be organised. A discussion to reduce the deaths of elephants and accidents at level crossings will also be initiated to mark the occasion.

It was also decided to support the decision of All-India Railway Engineers Federation (AIREF) to stage a mass dharna at New Delhi on July 22 against delay in fulfilling long-pending demands such as salary on a par with non-technical staff, Group-B status to all engineers and  separate recognition to AIREF by sending engineers in good numbers from ECoR zone.
