In Mumbai local trains, a few coaches are reserved especially for women passengers. However this happens to be the last coach, position next to the officer who gives the Train Signal.

This raises the concern of security of women passengers in cases of malfunctions of train, derailment, disconnection of the coach from the engine, accidents from front or back, etc. Also the women passesngers have to walk all the way to the ends of the train to board the coach.

It would be great if this ladies' coach is positioned towards the middle of the local trains in the name of convenience and safety.
