Indian Railways tested 'Kavach'- a native Automatic Train Protection System

 Delhi : The fourth-biggest railroad organization of the world - the Indian Railways has tried its native programmed train insurance framework 'Kavach' to support security in trains activity. Association Minister of Railways, Communication and Electronics and Information Technology, Ashwini Vaishnaw, assessed the preliminary of 'Kavach' on fourth March. The Successful preliminary of 'Kavach' was led between Gullaguda - Chitgidda Railway stations in South Central Railway. Under the mission, Atmanirbhar Bharat - 2,000 km of the organization will be brought under 'Kavach' for wellbeing and limit increase in 2022-23. The native Automatic Train Protection System is perhaps the least expensive framework and has a Safety Integrity Level 4 (SIL-4) affirmed innovation with the likelihood of 1 blunder in 10,000 years.


The KAVACH is a natively evolved ATP framework by the Research Design and Standards Organization (RDSO) as a team with Indian industry and preliminaries worked with by South Central Railway to accomplish the corporate goal of security in train tasks across Indian Railways. It is a cutting edge electronic arrangement of Safety Integrity Level - 4 guidelines.

KAVACH is intended to give security by forestalling trains to pass the sign at Danger (Red) and stay away from a crash. It actuates the train slowing mechanism consequently in the event that the driver neglects to control the train according to the speed limitations. Furthermore, it forestalls impact between two Locomotives furnished with a practical KAVACH framework.

Elements of KAVACH

1. Avoidance of Signal Passing at Danger (SPAD)

2. Consistent update of Movement Authority with a showcase of sign angles in Driver Machine Interface (DMI)/Loco Pilot activity cum Indication Panel (LPOCIP)

3. Programmed Braking for Prevention of Over Speeding

4. Auto Whistling while at the same time moving toward Level Crossing Gates

5. Avoidance of crash between two Locomotives furnished with utilitarian KAVACH

6. SoS Messages during crisis circumstances

7. Unified live checking of Train developments through the Network Monitor System.


96% of rail line Traffic is carried on Indian Railway High-Density Network and Highly Used Network courses. To move this traffic securely, KAVACH works are being taken up in an engaged way according to the accompanying need set by the Railway Board. 

Primary goal: High-Density Routes and on New Delhi - Mumbai and New Delhi - Howrah Sections for 160 Kmph with Automatic Block Signaling and Centralized Traffic Control. Since such areas have higher possibilities of human blunders on piece of drivers bringing about mishaps as trains run nearer to one another. Second Priority: On the Highly Used Networks with Automatic Block Signaling and Centralized Traffic Control.

Second Priority: On the Highly Used Networks with Automatic Block Signaling & Centralized Traffic Control.

Third Priority: On other Passenger High-Density Routes with Automatic Block Signaling.

Fourth Priority:  All other routes.
