Jul 28 (21:03)   Limited response to Indian Railways’ private operations tender

Ravi~   236 news posts

INDIAN Railway’s (IR) much publicised plan to operate private passenger services on the mainline network has failed to take off after state-owned Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) and the Megha Group were confirmed as the only participants when bids were finally opened on July 23, 18 months after the tenders were floated.

Companies including Larsen & Toubro, GMR, Gateway Rail, Cube Highways, BHEL, CAF, Welspun and PNC infra, which had expressed interest in the project, did not participate.

Offers were received for just three of the 12 clusters identified for private train operations: the Mumbai-2, Delhi-1 and Delhi-2 clusters. Since the IRCTC has offered a substantially higher rate of revenue sharing – 18%, 15% and 6% respectively for the three clusters – it is likely to win the contracts.

The ambitious plan was announced last year, with the bidding process getting underway in July 2020. A 35-year concession is proposed in tender documents, with the concessionaire required to introduce their own rolling stock and locomotives, and pay fixed charges for paths, stations, access to railway infrastructure and electricity consumed. IR will provide the guard and driver. In addition, private operators are required to share revenue with IR on a ratio decided through the competitive bidding process.

However, several private operators confirmed in March that they would not be participating.

According to an official press release, the Railway Ministry will expeditiously complete the evaluation process and decide the winners. The statement says 29 pairs of services requiring 40 modern trains and an investment of Rs 72bn ($US 1bn) will be operated in the first phase. IR was targeting the introduction of 109 services by 2023-2024.

Unreasonable clauses
Private investors apparently backed out because of “unreasonable clauses” contained in the tender document. One of the first companies to make an exit was Gateway Rail. “Railways do not have the infrastructure to maintain speeds of 160km/h,” says CEO, Mr Sachin Bhanushali. “However, the tender documents made it mandatory for private players to bring in rolling stock fit for 160km/h. The second issue was about sourcing, as such trains are not available in the Indian market.”

Bhanushali adds that the private parties demanded that an independent regulator be established to settle possible disputes. “But IR was unwilling to address these concerns,” he says.

Rail consultants point to other anomalies in the tender documents. For instance, they state that track access charges paid to IR would increase on an annual cumulative basis. However, there was no reference to whether passenger fares would increase correspondingly. Second, IR officials were unwilling to concede the demand that the concession agreement should have a “bankable status,” in order to make it possible for private companies to take out bank loans. Third, the tender documents make it clear that the private parties cannot make an exit before they have brought in the new trains.

“Earlier initiatives of IR to set up locomotive factories under the public-private partnership (PPP) mode gave fruitful results because of engagement amongst both the parties to address the concerns,” says rail consultant, Mr Harsh Dhingra. “I wish a similar process had been adopted in this bid as well.”

Jul 26 (14:11)   किऊल-गया रेलखंड: पांच साल में भी दोहरीकरण का काम अधूरा

किऊल-गया रेलखंड: पांच साल में भी दोहरीकरण का काम अधूरा
मार्च 22 तक 129 किमी रेललाइन का होना है दोहरीकरण, अभी आधा हुआ काम
सुस्त रफ्तार के कारण समय पर दोहरीकरण का काम पूरा होना नहीं दिख रहा संभव

करो इंतजार
शेखपुरा। हिन्दुस्तान संवाददाता
काम की सुस्त रफ्तार के कारण किऊल-गया रेलखंड का दोहरीकरण का काम पांच साल बाद भी अधूरा पड़ा हुआ है। हाल यह है कि 129 किलोमीटर लंबे रेलखंड पर अभी आधा भी दोहरीकरण का काम पूरा नहीं किया गया है। जबकि, रेलवे ने दोहरीकरण का काम पूरा करने का लक्ष्य मार्च 2022 तक रखा गया है।
रेलवे यात्री संघ के जिलाध्यक्ष आतोष कुमार सिंहा ने कहा कि दोहरीकरण का काम पूरा नहीं होने के कारण यात्रियों को परेशानी का सामना करना पड़ता है। आजादी के बाद से उपेक्षित इस रेलखंड पर साल 2016 में दोहरीकरण की प्रक्रिया शुरू की गयी थी। अबतक महज किऊल से शेखपुरा तक और नवादा से तिलैया तक ही दोहरीकरण किया जा रहा है। किऊल-शेखपुरा तक कंक्रिट स्लीपर बिछा दिया गया है। अब ट्रैक बिछाने का काम किया जाएगा। वारिरसलीगंज से नवादा तक दोहरीकरण का काम काफी पीछे है। अब काम की जो रफ्तार है, उससे ऐसा प्रतीत होता है कि मार्च 2022 तक लक्ष्य का पूरा होना संभव नहीं है। दोहरीकरण हो जाने पर पर्यटन को बढ़ावा मिलेगा। बोधगया और राजगीर जाना इस रेलखंड से आसान हो जाएगा।
अक्टूबर 2018 से बिजली से दौड़ रही हैं ट्रेनें:
2016 से ही 129 किलोमीटर लंबे रेलखंड का विद्युतीकरण काम शुरू किया गया था। अक्टूबर 2018 से पहले ही विद्युतीकरण का काम पूरा कर लिया गया। रेलखंड पर अक्टूबर 2018 से इलेक्ट्रिक ट्रेनें दौड़ने लगी हैं। विद्युतीकरण के कारण अब ट्रेनें कम विलंब से चलती हैं।
शेखपुरा को मिला जक्शन का दर्जा
शेखपुरा-दनियावां रेलपथ का निर्माण शुरू होने के बाद शेखपुरा रेलवे स्टेशन को रेल मंत्रालय द्वारा जक्शन का दर्जा दिया है। शेखपुरा रेलवे स्टेशन का निर्माण किया जा रहा है। स्टेशन पर चार लाइनें बिछायी जा रही हैं। अभी इस रेलखंड पर दो एक्सप्रेस और दो पैसेंजर ट्रेनों का परिचालन किया जा रहा है। कोरोना के कारण तीन पैसेंजर ट्रेनों का परिचालन बंद है।

जमशेदपुर : जमशेदपुर के सांसद विद्युत वरण महतो ने गुरुवार को संसद भवन में नए रेल मंत्री अश्विनी वैष्णव से मुलाकात की. इस मुलाकात में उन्होनें अपने संसदीय क्षेत्र के रेलवे संबंधी विभिन्न मांगों पर विस्तृत चर्चा की. उन्होनें टाटा से बक्सर तक सीधी रेल सेवा प्रारंभ करने के मांग पर चर्चा की और कहा कि यह जनहित में अत्यंत आवश्यक है. उन्होंने कहा कि झारखण्ड अविभाजित बिहार का हिस्सा था, इस कारण जमशेदपुर एवं आसपास में बड़ी संख्या में उत्तर बिहार के लोग निवास करते है. बक्सर तक सीधी रेल सेवा नहीं होने के कारण उस क्षेत्र के लोगों को आवागमन में काफी कठिनाईयों का सामना करना पड़ रहा है. रेल मंत्री ने अपने निजी सचिव को आदेश दिया कि इस संबंध में उन्हें विस्तृत जानकारी उपलब्ध कराया जाए एवं अबतक हुई कार्रवाई से भी अवगत कराया जाए ताकि इसका निदान निकाला जा सके. इसके अतिरिक्त सांसद श्री महतो ने...

Railway is all set to roll out the much-awaited 'AC Economy' class. The air-conditioned Economy class is a new class of train travel in India. As many as 27 coaches, specifically designed for the new class of railway travel, have been distributed in various zones of the Indian Railways.

The 'AC Economy' class coaches will be sported by the Duronto trains under Western Railway and other trains from several parts of the country. Instead of 72 berths, as in the AC III-tier coaches, AC Economy coaches will have 83 berths, reported The Indian Express.

Speculations On The Fare

The Railway Board is yet to decide on the fare for these special coaches. Some within the railway believe the price should be fixed within reach of those who usually buy non-AC 'sleeper' class tickets. Another argument that has come up is that the ticket should be priced close to the AC III-tier, which is the entry-level AC travel option for long-distance trains at present. According to officials, the decision on the fare of the new AC economy class has been hanging since May, and the Railway Ministry will take a formal decision soon.

Over a decade ago, the 'AC Economy' coaches were launched in the Garib Rath trains. However, it had merely inserted more berths just to fit more passengers in a coach. This led to passengers complaining of discomfort. This time, though, the Rail Coach Factory, Kapurthala, has stepped away from the existing design imprint of AC coaches and resigned the coaches for this particular class of train travel.

The New Design

The air-conditioning in the coaches is redesigned in a way that it provides individual vents to each berth. The coaches come with foldable snack tables in longitudinal and transverse bays, improved and modular design of seats and berths, injury-free spaces, and holders for water bottles, magazines and mobile phones. The redesigned coaches will also include individual reading lights and cell-phone charging points in each berth, adding to the standard sockets. The new AC Economic class could be called the '3E' class in reservation paperwork as per the reports.

Most probably they will be charged between garib rath and 3ac class. Eg if gr fare is 1000 and 3ac is 1500. Then 3E will be around 1200-1300.
