Quick and timely response by the Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel to complaints is being appreciated by railway passengers.

On May 20, upon receiving a Railmadad complaint regarding left behind luggage in a train at Vzianagaram Railway Station, the duty train escorting staff of RPF Post- Vizianagaram searched and retrieved luggage which was containing property worth ₹40,000 including a gold chain. On the same day, the RPF Visakhapatnam has traced a missing bag containing about ₹5,000 worth valuables to the owner at Visakhapatnam Railway Station.

Apart from rescuing people in emergency situations and tracing the lost or missing valuables of train passengers, the RPF have also been involved in a number of awareness campaigns about the Do’s & Don’ts, against deboarding running trains and trespassing on the railway tracks.
