. POLICY CIRCULAR NO.2/2007. SIGNALLING DRAWINGS AND DIAGRAMS Sub: Numbering scheme and Approval of Signaling Plan and others on NF Railway. Guidelines exist under Chapter VII of IRSEM Part I (1988) in connection with check and approval of Signalling Drawings and Diagrams. However, it is observed that a proper procedure in issue of signaling plan & documents is not being followed. There have been following various situations where a) A Signalling Interlocking Plan of a station shows a number of alterations but some of these previous works are not completed. b) A current Signalling Interlocking Plan does not tally with the actual site conditions. c) A lower number Signalling Plan is issued for a station previously having a higher number. d) Works are planned to be done by Maintenance and Construction organizations concurrently. e) Actual designation of the approving officer is not indicated. The following procedure orders are issued to amplify the requirements of IRSEM and streamline the process of Design, Preparation, Checking and Issue of Drawings/Diagrams. 1. Numbering Scheme of Signalling Plans. The standard numbering schemes for signaling plan and other documents shall be as detailed below: 1.1. Every station, IBS, Auto section and independent LC Gates situated between stations are allotted with 4 digit number prefixing alphabets SG (SI). 1.2. These numbers are allotted serially from one end of the Railway (from West

Policy circular

to East in ascending order) i.e. the West most station namely Katihar is given the first number 1000. An index register maintained for allotting the number. 1.3. This requires that all the plans to be re-numbered. Out of the four numerical digits first digit is assigned to each Division. Open Line will prepare a Master Numbering Scheme for all the installations of each division assigning a division wise code such as KIR-1, APDJ-2, RNY-3, LMG-4 and TSK-5. This scheme to be documented in the index register and to be gradually implemented as and when the new plans are issued for a station. 1.4. Open line will allot plan number from the Master Numbering scheme duly registered in the index register maintained for this. The register will indicate clearly the work for which the plan number is allotted. Construction organization shall now take signaling plan number from Open line for any new works. 1.5. Stations are serially numbered starting with Mainline Route, then branch line and MG routes. 1.6. Completion of the plan are indicated by numerals 1,2,3. etc. following the station number as SG (SI) 1000/2. 1.7. After carrying out an alteration, the completion plan is issued based on the verified plan received from site and the next higher numbers like xxxx/1------- is given while issuing, e.g., the completion plan on the works plan No.SG (SI) 1000/2B, will be numbered as SG (SI) 1000/3 superseding plan No.SG (SI) 1000/2B. 1.8. On the right hand side of the Signalling plan, a standard block is provided, indicating name of station, plan no. and other details. Along with this block a table of deviations requiring sanction under approved special instructions and special instruction should be incorporated. This table shall contain columns for CRS sanction number, date and date of commissioning of work. The overlap shall be as specified in G & SR 3.40. The irrelevant notes presently being put on SIP such as LED signal, IPS, Control phone, Boom locking etc. which have no connection with interlocking shall not be shown in signaling plan. Instead of this, notes regarding telephone with station to level crossing gates, turnouts, etc. which are required as per SEM Part-I para 8.6 to be shown. A typical signaling plan which is also issued alongwith this circular shall be taken for reference. 1.9. Other related drawing of a station like Locking Table, selection table, Route Section Plan, Control Panel Diagram, Wiring Diagrams etc. are issued on the same number of that station prefixed by (LT), (ST) (RSP), (CP), (WD) respectively. 1.10.In case no change is required in above documents, for any work to the plan issued subsequent to the last completion plan, the number of these documents shall be changed as per signaling plan at the time of issuing completion documents, for the concerned work. 1.11.In case spare number is not available when a new station / LC gate is opened between two existing stations, alphabet A is suffixed to lower number of the said two stations i.e. New Station
Policy circular

between stations having numbers 1025 and 1026 is numbered 1025 A.

1.12.Only one master tracing for each station / gate shall be prepared and subsequent completion/alteration should be shown in original tracing only. 1.13.Presently works plan are issued on the tracing copy of last completion plan with next higher number. At stations, where construction and Open Line are carrying out works, the plans are being issued under separate numbers, which create problems in preparation of SWR and obtaining CRSs sanction due to overlapping nature of works. To avoid such situations, undermentioned procedure shall be followed. 1.13.1 Initially, plans for works shall be issued on print without modifying last completion plan under the legend Numeric 1 with word Tentative suffixing the signaling plan number. The tentative plan shall be issued under alteration 1 suffixed on last completion Plan Number. (Say Completion Plan No: SG (SI) 1234/10 Tentative Plan will be SG (SI) 1234/10/1/Tentative.) 1.13.2. All the drawings/designs are now being drawn on Auto CAD. The tentative work plans as per 1.13.1 Should be prepared on the copy of last completion plan in Auto CAD and each alteration to be done on different layers. Each layer is to be assigned a tentative alteration 1 or 2 as the case may be. The alteration of a particular layer shall be incorporated in the original copy of last completion plan only when the work for which alterations were issued is ready for commissioning and CRSs sanction papers are to be submitted. Necessary discipline shall be exercised by HQ on the Division and Construction field units to ensure that the approved signaling plan is issued only when work is ready for commissioning and to obtain CRSs sanction. 1.13.3. The approved plan showing alteration shall be issued by suffixing alphabet A or B as the case may be, in serial order of commissioning of work irrespective of serial order of tentative plans. 1.13.4 Approved plans shall be issued with signature of Competent Authority as per Para 1.13.3. It shall be issued sufficiently in advance of the proposed date of commissioning for the preparation of SWR and obtaining CRSs sanction. Before finalizing the approved plan, remarks regarding addition/modification if any shall be obtained from the field unit, so that no further alterations generally become necessary after issuing the approved plan.
Policy circular

1.13.5. In case it is not possible to commission a work say with alteration A for which approved plan is issued and CRSs sanction obtained and meanwhile another work is to be given priority in commissioning. In such cases, approved plan for the second work shall be issued under next alteration and the previous alteration should be cancelled restoring the last completion plan on which previous alteration was issued. Subsequently, if first work is to be taken on hand, the alteration to be shown a fresh under next alphabet number like B or C as the case may be and CRSs sanction to be obtained on the signaling plan having the latest alteration. 1.14.A close co-ordination between Construction and Open Line unit at HQ level shall be made in issuing plans with above numbering scheme, to avoid discrepancies. 2.0. Design & Preparation of Signaling documents & Circuits from outsource. 2.1. Where drawings are to be prepared and supplied by Contractor, these shall be done in accordance with the Technical specifications and time schedule for supply of drawings.
