Ranchi, Jharkhand  | August  | 01, 2021 ::  Former vice chairman of state minority commission in Jharkhand Gurvinder Singh Sethi will now take care of railway passengers’ service.
He took over charge of his office at Rail Bhawan in New Delhi on Saturday. After taking charge he met Passenger Service Commitee chairman at his residence along with other newly nominated members. During the meeting it was decided that a meeting of the board will be convened soon to chalk out strategy for developmental work and completion of pending railway projects.

The Ministry of Railways have nominated him one of the 25 members of the Passenger Service Committee to look into the various aspects of catering, vending, stalls, book stalls and tourists information centre besides others. He is the only member from Jharkhand.
The resolution was taken by the railway board on July 21.

“Every assignment is important to me. I thank our Prime Minister and Railway Minister who gave me new responsibility. I will happily carry out my responsibility and leave no stone unturned to provide a better service to railway passengers,” Sethi, a senior BJP leader in the state, said.

As a member of the Passenger Service Committee, Sethi, who earlier used to look in the matter of minority, will be able to review the size, design and location of catering, vending stalls, trolleys and all other stalls, PCO, STD booths and recommend measures for standardization of design, size as well as the location to ensure that they not only match with aesthetics of the station but also take up minimum space and do not create hindrance to movement.
