New Railway rule you must know, otherwise you will miss your train
 Yesterday


NEW DELHI, JAN 7: Railways is planning to seal stations just like airports and passengers would have to arrive 15-20 minutes before scheduled departure of trains to complete the process of security checks.
The security plan - with high end technology - has already been put in motion at Allahabad, in anticipation of the Kumbh Mela which begins this month and at Hoobly railway station in Karnataka with a blueprint for 202 more stations ready for implementation, Railway Protection Force director general Arun Kumar told PTI.
"The plan is to seal the railway stations. It is primarily about identifying openings and to determine how many can be closed. There are areas which will be closed through permanent boundary walls, others will be manned by RPF personnel and yet others will have collapsible gates.
"At each entry point there will be random security checks. However, unlike at airports, passengers need not come hours in advance, but just 15-20 minutes ahead of their departure times to ensure that they are not delayed because of the security process," he said.
Kumar said that while security will increase, presence of security personnel will not.
"If we are inventing in technology, then manpower requirement will reduce," he said.
These steps are a part of a security plan under the Integrated Security System (ISS) which was approved in 2016 to strengthen surveillance mechanism at 202 railway stations.
The ISS will comprise CCTV cameras, access control, personal and baggage screening system and bomb detection and disposal system which together provide multiple checking of passengers and baggage from the point of entry in the station premises till boarding of train. The anticipated cost of the ISS project stands at Rs 385.06 crore.
"The security plan envisages a layered security check where passengers will be scrutinised even before they enter the station premises to ease the pressure at stations during peak hours," Kumar said.
It will also include real-time face recognition software which will alert the RPF command centre of any known offenders.
Passengers will be checked randomly - every eighth or ninth passenger will undergo the process on his arrival at the station," he said.

The All India Bank Employees Association and Bank Employees Federation of India has informed the Indian Banks' Association of the two-day nationwide strike on January 8-9.

New Delhi:

A section of public sector bank employees have decided to go on a two-day strike on January 8 and 9 in support of a nation-wide strike call given by 10 central trade unions against the government's alleged anti-worker policy.

The All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) and Bank Employees Federation of India has informed the Indian Banks' Association (IBA) of the two-day nationwide strike on January 8-9, IDBI Bank said in a filing to the BSE.

In a separate filing to the BSE, Bank of Baroda said "in the event of AlBEA and BEFI proceeding on strike on January 8-9, 2019, the functioning of bank's branches/offices in some of the zones may be affected."

Ten central trade unions have called for a nationwide general strike on January 8-9, against the "anti-people" policies of the Centre and have placed a charter of 12 demands before the central government.

On December 26, nine bank unions and around 1 million employees of various banks, including private lenders, had observed a one-day strike to protest against the proposed amalgamation of Vijaya Bank and Dena Bank with Bank of Baroda.

Adulting Hacks: How to Come Late to Work And Not get Caught

By Papri Das

January 03, 2019 at 12:17 PM IST

We all have days that play out like the Murphy’s Law -- everything that can go wrong does go wrong, and the result: you are late to work.

Run, run, run![https://images]

It’s okay.

Breathe.

Feeling guilty won’t cover your ass, it'll only make it worse.

Instead, try one of these tricks and make it look like it never happened.

Remember, the secret is to belong, without looking panicky or worked up.

Walk in with a coffee mug

Bring one from home if you have to. Leave your office bag elsewhere. The reception is a good place. Make sure to collect it later.

Keep Calm and keeping Sipping on Coffee[https://images]

Start printing a non-existent document the minute you're in.

Don’t forget to get rid of the jacket.

Whirrrrrrrrrrrr... the sound of printing papers is relaxing, isn’t it? [https://images]

Waiting for the computer to start up? Lean back on that chair and stare intently.

Use your phone flash to create fake monitor light if the angle is right.

Be a busy body[https://images]

Late for a meeting? Start with a question.

This shifts attention from you to the agenda. Just be careful not to ask something too specific. (You don’t want to seem inattentive by asking what’s already been discussed.)

[https://images]

Are you the type to get late too often? Own a pair of almost identical blazers

Hang one on your chair all the time to mark your presence.

[https://images]

Aggressively respond to emails before getting to work.

Got nothing to respond to? Send one yourself asking for details about a random project.

Thank lord for the smartphone and Internet[https://images]

These tricks work only if you are late by 10 or 15 minutes.

If you've missed an entire meeting, we doubt anything but a time machine could save you.

(Being an adult is tough. What’s tougher is asking for help.
Don’t panic. 'A Jugaadu's Guide to Adulting' will help you keep calm and keep adulting.

PS: We don't take us seriously. You shouldn't, either. )
