There was an old demand to change the designation; written information from the Railway Board has also been given to the GMs of all the zones in this regard. This change has been implemented immediately. There is an old demand for railway employees to change their designation.
Information about this was also given on the official Twitter handle of the Railways. The employees had been demanding a change in the designation of the Guard since 2004. His reasoning behind this was that the job of the Guard is not only to show the flag and torch for the signal but also.
The railways may have changed the designation of the Guard on the Guard, but the responsibilities will remain the same as before. Apart from meeting the needs of the passengers on the train, the burden of handling the parcel material, passenger safety and maintenance of the train will also be on the Guard itself.
Therefore, the demand for changing the designation was accepted by the Railways. Railways informed that changing the designation will not make any difference in the responsibility. Changes have also been made in the post names of some other employees.
