लाखों रेल यात्रियों के लिए ये खबर किसी झटके से कम नहीं है। राजधानी, शताब्दी और दुरंतो जैसी ट्रेनों में सफर करने वाले यात्रियों को झटका लगने वाला है। ऐसा इसलिए क्योंकि इन ट्रेनों में न सिर्फ चाय और खाना महंगा हुआ है, बल्कि टिकट बुक करते समय खाने का विकल्प चुनने पर अब यात्रियों को तीन से नौ फीसदी अधिक किराया देना होगा।
 इससे पहले 2014 में बदली थीं दरें-

Indian Railways goes eco-friendly! In a bid to become environment-friendly, Piyush Goyal-chaired Railway Ministry has undertaken various measures over the past few years. From setting up solar power plants at railway stations to installing bio-toilets in train coaches, multiple steps have been taken by the Railway Ministry as a part of the Go-Green Initiative. Apart from these measures, the national transporter has also put a ban on the use of single-use plastic material, with less than 50 micron thickness, starting from 2 October 2019.

Ministry on Indian Railways’ network:
1) Plastic ban: Indian Railways has imposed a ban on single-use plastic material, with less than 50 micron thickness. All vendors On Indian Railways premises have been directed to avoid the use of plastic carry bags and also, all railway officials have been asked to reduce, reuse and refuse plastic items. Moreover, plastic bottle crushing machines have also been installed at various stations.
2) Use of Kulhads: Indian Railways has once again started encouraging the use of terracotta-made ‘kulhads’ at stations. Varanasi and Rae Bareli stations have already started using terracotta-made ‘kulhads’, glasses and plates. The move is being implemented by the ministry to shift towards plastic-free operations.
3) Electrification: The national transporter is aiming to become the world’s first-of-its-kind big railway network to be fully electrified and also to be the first-ever ‘Net-Zero’ railway. Piyush Goyal recently said that Indian Railways is implementing electrification at a very fast pace. The Modi government electrified a total of 5,200 km of railway lines last year, he said.
4) Solar panels: Indian Railways is also setting up solar panels over rooftops at stations and railway buildings. Earlier this year, the national transporter planned to install 1000 MW solar power by 2020-2021. According to Indian Railways, the move would help the transporter to source about 10% of electrical energy from renewable source. Many railway stations have already started making use of solar energy including Anand Vihar Terminal, Hazrat Nizamuddin and New Delhi railway station.
5) Bio-toilets: Over the last few years, several bio-toilets have been installed in train coaches. Last year, the Railway Minister announced that by this year, the national transporter will have 100% bio-toilets in trains, making rail tracks free of open defecation and hence improving the overall environment. According to Goyal, defecation on tracks is unhygienic as well as unsafe as the tracks are damaged because of the uric acid, causing railway accidents.

: Alstom SA’s joint venture with the Indian Railways, which has to supply 35 electric locomotives to the national transporter in the current financial year, is struggling to meet deadlines and could be at risk of cancellation, said officials with knowledge of the matter.

able to supply any engines yet, with the locomotives having failed multiple trial runs, they said. “Prima facie, if a design condition is not met and a period (specified for delivery) expires, contract cancellation becomes the automatic route,” said one of the officials, who described the venture as a “failure.”
The Electric Locomotive Factory at Madhepura in Bihar was one of the two major locomotive projects awarded in 2015 as part of the Make in India initiative, the second being a joint venture with General Electric (GE). The Rs 20,000 crore Madhepura project was tasked with manufacturing 800 high-powered locomotives in 11years. The joint venture is the largest foreign direct investment (FDI) in the railway sector.
The Rs 10,000 crore Marhowra facility, the joint venture with GE, will make 1,000 diesel locomotives in 11years. Indian Railways owns a 26% stake in both, with the overseas partner holding the rest. The French company didn’t respond to queries and neither did Indian Railways. Calls and messages to Railway Board chairman VK Yadav were unanswered. The French company said in March last year that the plant was on schedule.
“Alstom announced the completion of its first all-electric locomotive from its state-of-theart locomotive facility at Madhepura in the state of Bihar, on schedule,” it had said in a statement. The locomotive that had been manufactured at the Alstom plant and inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is “gathering dust,” said one of the officials. The company is still in the process of making changes to the specifications of the locomotive, said one of the officials cited above. The Research Designs and Standards Organisation (RDSO), part of the railway ministry, conducted two trials of the WAG12 locomotive, according to an official status report—the first on July 23-25 last year and the second on April 10-12 this year.
“In both trials, the loco could not pass the laid down criteria,” the report said. “Further modifications in bogie and suspension of loco are also parallely (sic) being done.” One official cast doubt on the Alstom’s expertise. “This is a new design they are working on,” the person said. “I am not sure they (Alstom) have the capability in bogie design.”

for the new Vande Bharat Express train. The new train was flagged off by Home Minister Amit Shah on October 3 this year, and it began commercial services from October 5.
According to official data accessed exclusively by Financial Express Online, between October 5 to October 31, Train number 22439 NDLS-SVDK Vande Bharat Express did a total 23 trips with 100% occupancy and net earnings of Rs 3.7 crore. On the other hand, Train number 22440 SVDK-NDLS Vande Bharat Express did a total 23 trips with 96% occupancy and net earnings of Rs 3.5 crore in the same time period.
The Vande Bharat Express train to Katra also scored on another crucial parameter of Indian Railways – punctuality. The semi-high speed train, which has a speed potential of 180 kmph, runs at a maximum speed of 130 kmph on this route. Out of the 27 trips from October 5 to November 4, the SVDK-NDLS Vande Bharat Express arrived in New Delhi 5 to 10 minutes ahead of its schedule on as many as 20 occasions. In both the directions, Train No 22439/22440 maintained its punctuality in 26 out of 27 trips, a remarkable achievement for the national transporter.
Vande Bharat Express Delhi-Katra-Delhi: Fare, timings, schedule and route
Train number 22439 NDLS-SVDK Vande Bharat Express leaves the New Delhi railway station every morning, except Tuesday, at 6:00 AM to reach Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Katra at 2:00 PM. En route, the train halts at Ambala Cantt, Ludhiana and Jammu Tawi for 2 minutes each in both the directions. In the return direction the same day, Train number 22440 SVDK-NDLS Vande Bharat Express leaves from Katra at 3:00 PM to arrive in New Delhi at 11:00 PM.
Indian Railways has kept IRCTC’s catering optional for passengers at the time of booking the tickets. The fare for the AC chair car seat between Delhi and Katra is Rs 1,630 (including meals) and Rs 3,015 (including meals) for the Executive chair car. On the other hand, the fare for the AC chair car seat between Katra and Delhi is Rs 1,570 (including meals) and Rs 2,965 (including meals) for the Executive chair car. The semi-high speed self-propelled train set has reduced the travel time between Delhi and Katra to just 8 hours instead of 12 hours.

There are many more reasons to trade off , apart from Travel time when people choses to opt trains over Airplanes and money is one of the prime factor..
Look at Delhi - Ljn section for example.. or even Del Bhopal / VNS / ALD / BRC / Jammu
The main reason people opt trains over flight inspite from having good connectivity is cheap travel and comparable trimmings .

travels are always city center to City center and people trade off additional 2-2.5 hours if tickets are priced half than airfare and facilities provided are more....
South India lacks good higher speed rail sections , trains merely achieve 130 kmph , they schedule trains with additional slacks to keep them on time...
Railways have now only explored that people are willing to spend more if u provide better connectivity in terms Travel time , convinience and facilities..
See for eg. MDU tejas or SBC MAS shatabdis !
The train travel had demerrits when we talk of Secunderabad because rail routes are longer to major cities as compared to Highways ..
Which gives both roads and air travel a competitive advantage over trains
