We had good preparation for the DRUCC meeting with data and concerns we collected from employees. DRM responded very positively for all our requests. One of the major concern raised by Prathidhwani was the Train stoppage issue, due to the current heavy traffic in this division the Railway is finding it difficult to allot new stoppages but DRMs response was very positive and said he will definitely look in to the matter, Prathidhwani is planning to meet the officials exclusively to discuss this matter.   Another concern raised was the Infrastructure facilities and Security issues at Kazakootam Station. The Commercial division is working on infrastructure improvements  and the work related to this will commence soon. The Security matters were also taken in to account. Image removed.
