Railway officials have given strict instructions to ensure that a stampede does not occur if crowd pressure increases. According to this, instructions have been given to run the train on the platform which has already been allotted. If there is a need to change the platform under special circumstances, then it will have to be announced 30 minutes in advance, so that a situation of panic among the passengers does not arise.
