In cases of emergencies like this one, the staff onboard generally informs a nearby station where aid is available, after which doctors staying in railway colonies are called upon to help, a spokesperson from the Railways informed.

While some have lauded the lady doctors' efforts others have urged the ministry to grant a free lifetime travel pass to the doctor and the baby girl.
