Letter to the Railway Minister (Track maintainers Thiruchirapally)

Dear Shri. Piyush Goyal Ji,

I would like to bring to your kind attention that I had received a representation from women from Kerala working in Mayiladuthurai section of Tiruchirapalli Division as Track Maintainers alleging that they are being subjected to severe harassment by their immediate supervisor.

I understand that the 17 women have jointly submitted representation to all concerned including Railway Board Chairman and to your office. Their request is to transfer him out of the section as they find it impossible or not feasible to continue to take orders from him.

I request that you may kindly consider to examine and issue appropriate directions of the concerned authorities to ensure that the women working in the railways as Track Maintainers in TPJ Division are not subjected to harassment at the work place and that their safety and security is guaranteed.

With regards,

Yours sincerely,


Shri. Piyush Goyal
Hon’ble Minister of Railways,
Govt. of India,
Rail Bhawan, Rafi Marg
New Delhi-110 001.
