I have been deeply concerned about this abhorent practice of the shoeshine boys on all railway platforms of banging their shoeshine boxes in an attempt to attract customers.
I have written to the WR authorities at BCT and they have responded to the effect that they have sent out suitable instructions to all stations to stop this practice.
At the ground level, the SM and SS at these stations just do not bother to do their bit to protect the public from this menace.
These shoeshine boys have now armed themselves with sticks and empty plastic bottles(they make a louder noise) and bang away merrily and assault our ears with their 'music'.
Will the railway authorities wake up? There is a heavy monetary fine for violation and also a jail term under the Prevention of Noise Pollution Act.
Who should be hauled up, the shoeshine boys, the SMs and SS or the GM of the Railways?
But someone, do something about this menace.
WE all can - by asking the shoeshine boy next to you to STOP making noise.

Starting with Churchgate station, I observe these subways are just not cleaned. Look at the one on the northern end. The condition it is in, needs to be seen to be believed.
It would appear the subways are the responsibility of the MCGM and fall ootside the perview of the railway authorities.
Then, what is the MCGM doing?
Can the railway authorities not take this matter up with the MCGM?
We do need clean subways.

I reach Churchgate Station at different times in the morning.
But whenever I reach early, say 7:00 am or 8:00 am, I find that the North end subway doors are not opened. Commuter are seen struggling with these heavy gates.
I am sure, within the railways, it is someone's job to open these doors each morning. I'd like to tell the GM WR that this person, if there is one appointed for the task, is just doing his job. I am sure there are supervisors above him.
The SM & SSM at Ch'gate station do not seem to be aware of the problem. They are happy sitting in their offices and doing other work.
Railway authorities - Please`wake up.
Commuters - please take the trouble to register your complaints about this at the office of the SSM.
This has got to change.

Thanks Madanmohan for raising your concern. I have received your other 2 comments as well and instead of publishing them on this comments section, I'd publish a post on it soon. Seriously, we must all act in our individual capacity to stop such practices. The fact reamains that unless we all come forward and raise a voice against a particular issue, it stays ignored.

I would urge all of you to ask the shoeshine guys to stop making noise. If each one of us does this, they'd listen. If just one person says so, you know what happens - nothing.

@Madanmohan - Kindly provide me with your email address so that I can update you about the post on your concern. I'd not publish the mail ID.
