Suresh Prabhu inaugurates R-Mitra app for women’s safety


  • “The basic functionality of R-Mitra (Railway Mobile Instant Tracking Response and Assistance) is to alert the nearest RPF inspector and divisional security control room in case of any emergency with the press of a button only,” Eastern Railway general manager RK Gupta said.
  • “Once the button on the app is pressed, the physical location of the victim will be sent to the control room with the help of GPS and GPRS and the control room will track the user and ensure action immediately,” he said.
  • He said that the app works both online and offline in SMS mode by using the helpline number 56161.
