Audit was conducted with an objective to assess whether the available infrastructure at selected stations is adequate for handling the present and expected traffic load, and impact of deficiencies in the existing infrastructure on smooth and efficient running of trains. Audit noticed that infrastructure such as platforms, washing pit lines and stabling lines at the stations were not augmented according to increase in number of trains handled on these stations. Due to non-availability of path (platform/line), the trains have to wait at outer signal or the adjacent station until the platform is vacated by pre-occupied trains.
