Central Railway local trains are used by lakhs of passengers on a daily basis and the trains are crowded during peak hours. While the passengers struggle to get in the crowded trains, the hawkers selling their products in the running trains results in inconvenience for everyone. In order to avoid this, Central Railway had launched an initiative to take action against the hawkers.

Earlier, Railways had fined the hawkers but that was of no avail as the hawkers continued the practice of entering in crowded trains. Due to which, the Central Railway's Railway Police Force (RPF) had started an operation against the defaulters.
