It has been de­vel­oped by the Na­tional Com­mis­sion for Pro­tec­tion of Child Rights (NCPCR) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Railway Chil­dren In­dia. The doc­u­ment will serve as a frame­work to de­velop child-friendly en­vi­ron­ment at all Railway Sta­tions.

It is es­ti­mated that ev­ery five min­utes, a child ar­rives alone at a railway sta­tion in In­dia. As a re­sult, he or she is vul­ner­a­ble to sev­eral risks. Hence, it is im­por­tant to strengthen pro­tec­tion mech­a­nisms at sta­tions.

The launch of ‘Stan­dard Oper­at­ing Pro­ce­dure to en­sure care and pro­tec­tion of chil­dren’ by the rail­ways and min­istry of women and child de­vel­op­ment in 2015 was a pi­o­neer­ing doc­u­ment. How­ever, there are many sta­tions where the SOP is yet to be launched.

The guide­book will help to fill this gap.

A large scale awareness campaign to sen­si­tise the en­tire railway staff and other stake hold­ers like porters and ven­dors at sta­tions would be launched from June 8 in col­lab­o­ra­tion with NCPCR.
