Mumbai: Train services were severely hit due to a rail roko agitation between Titwala and Ambivali on Sunday with hundreds of people climbing down on the tracks around 12.30 pm, as the forest department and Kalyan Dombivali Municipal Corporation (KDMC) had demolished their houses.

agitation, which lasted more than one and a half hour, resulted in disturbance of the mail as well as local services. The railway authorities had already held a mega block on Central Railway (CR). The Kasara Railway Protection Force (RPF) will be registering a criminal case against the protesters under the Railway Act 1989.
Railway sources said that the demolition was carried out at Baneli village between Titwala and Ambivali by the forest department and KDMC on Friday. In this demolition drive, 600 houses had been razed while 2,000 houses are to be demolished on Monday.
A CR official, requesting anonymity, said, “The protesters are demanding rehabilitation. The issue pertains to the state government and KDMC. We don’t have any role in it.”
Senior Public Relation Officer (PRO) of CR, AK Jain said train number 11094 (Varanasi-Mahanagari Express) had been detained in the up direction by the protesters while train number 12869 (Mumbai CSMT - Howrah SF Express) was also stopped by protesters in the down direction. In addition to this, two suburban trains were partially cancelled at Kalyan station due to the protest.

Chennai: Southern Railway’s plans to run the Tejas Express from Chennai to Madurai at an average speed of 70kmph, which will result in a travel time of seven hours, has initiated heated discussions among regular commuters. The consensus is that the speed is too low vis-à-vis the fare, which is likely to be 20% more than that of the Shatabdi Express.The Tejas Express has amenities like on-board WiFi, CCTV cameras, modular toilets and better seats. It will be the first train linking Chennai Egmore with southern districts. As per plans, it will start at 6am, reach Madurai by 1pm and return to Chennai by around 9pm. Tickets may cost around Rs 1,000 for a chair-car seat if the dynamic pricing is taken into account, with the executive class seat costing around Rs 2,000. The fastest train on the Chennai-Madurai route is the Vaigai Express which takes 7 hours and 40 minutes...

to complete the journey.At such a price, the train should have a runtime of only six hours to lure passengers said A Giri, advisor to Thanjavur district rail users association (TANDRUA). “The entire rail line is doubled and electrified. It can be done,” he said.Charging 15% higher for a 10% faster journey may not be attractive said S Prabhu, a railway blogger from Chennai. However, with Tamil Nadu government increasing bus fares, the train could attract passengers from the upper middle class and above. “Even at 7 hours, it is faster than the fastest omni bus,” Prabhu said.Meanwhile, railway sources told TOI that the train will have a stoppage at Trichy and Kodaikanal Road. The Kodai Road stopping has been planned in such a way that tourists from Chennai can reach Kodaikanal before the usual hotel check-in time of 12pm. Similarly, for the return journey, tourists checking out from hotels in Kodaikanal can board the train after lunch, around 3pm.The travel time to Trichy is likely to be 4 hour and 30 minutes, which will be competitive compared to airlines, considering the fare as well as airport check-in time at both ends, sources added. A railway official said fare should be compared without including catering charges as not all would eat on-board, and added that the Tejas Express fares are competitive.

Yes I had conversation with fellow passengers bound to MDU in 16129. They are expecting travel time to be 6 hrs. To their mindset, they felt Tejas concept is reasonable.

Does the route even support the speed required to complete the journey within 6 hours ?? Average of around 82+ will be needed for that to happen. Is this route cleared for 130 MPS operations ??

अमृतसर
अमृतसर में जौड़ा फाटक रेल हादसे को लेकर पंजाब सरकार द्वारा करवाई गई मेजिस्ट्रेट जांच की रिपोर्ट में रेलवे कर्मियों की लापरवाही की बात सामने आने पर बाद रेलवे के अधिकारी सक्रिय हो गए हैं। रेलवे अब पंजाब सरकार द्वारा इन कर्मियों किसी भी प्रकार की कार्रवाई करने पर उन्हें कानूनी सहायता देने का विचार कर रहा है। हालाकि इस संबंध में रेलवे के किसी अधिकारी ने पुष्टि नहीं की है लेकिन सूत्रों का कहना है कि रविवार को रेलवे के कुछ बड़े अधिकारियों ने रेलवे स्टेशन के गेस्ट हाउस में गेटमैन निर्मल ¨सह, गेटमैन अमृत ¨सह व अन्य कर्मचारियों से मुलाकात की है।

सूत्रों के अनुसार रेलवे पंजाब सरकार की जांच रिपोर्ट से असंतुष्ट है और रिपोर्ट को एक पक्षीय बताया जा रहा है। क्योंकि रिपोर्ट में मेले के आयोजकों और रेल कर्मियों की लापरवाही ही बताई गई है। जबकि सिविल और पुलिस प्रशासन की कोई गलती रिपोर्ट में सामने नहीं आई है।
रेलवे सूत्रों के अनुसार इसी के चलते फिरोजुपर रेल मंडल से कुछ उच्चाधिकारी रविवार को यहां पंहुचे और स्टेशन के प्रशासनिक अधिकारियों से से बंद कमरे में विशेष मी¨टग की। बैठक में गेटमैन अमित ¨सह व शिवाला रेलवे फाटक के गेटमैन निर्मल ¨सह को भी बुलाया गया। उनसे कुछ जानकारियां हासिल कर कुछ दस्तावेज अपने पास रख लिए गए। बताया गया है कि अगर पंजाब सरकार इन कर्मियों पर कोई एक्शन लेती है तो रेलवे विभाग उन्हें कानूनी सहायता प्रदान करेगा।
रेलवे का तर्क है कि रेलवे की सबसे बड़ी एजेंसी द्वारा इस हादसे को लेकर दी गई रिपोर्ट वह बिल्कुल सही है। इसी कारण रेलवे ने पंजाब सरकार की रिपोर्ट पर अपना जवाब रखने की तैयारी शुरु कर दी है। सरकार की रिपोर्ट में जौड़ा रेलवे फाटक के गेटमैन अमित ¨सह व शिवाला रेलवे फाटक के गेटमैन निर्मल ¨सह पर कारवाई करने की ताकीद की है। रिपोर्ट से यह साफ है कि मेले के आयोजक मिट्ठू मदान और रेलवे के दोनों कर्मियों पर कार्रवाई होगी। परंतु ये कार्रवाई कैसी और कब होगी? इसको लेकर संशय बरकरार है। बता दें कि रेलवे ने इस हादसे को लेकर रेलवे की कोई गलती होने से इन्कार किया था।

PATNA: The Railway Board has approved a proposal of the Danapur division of East Central Railway to install a mechanised laundry plant under the ‘build, own, operate and transfer’ (BOOT) model near Pataliputra Junction.The mechanised laundry has become a must to cope with the increasing demand following introduction of several new pairs of mail and express trains from the division. Talking to this correspondent on Tuesday, Danapur DRM Ranjan Prakash Thakur said the division has the load of washing about 11 tonne linen per day. “The railways has currently one departmental mechanised laundry plant at Danapur, which cleans four tonne linen per day. The cleaning of four tonne linen per day has been outsourced to an agency located at Digha in Patna,” he said.Under the BOOT scheme, the railways will allot its 2,010 square metre land near the RPF barrack at Pataliputra Junction. “We will sign a Rs 41-crore agreement with...

a reputed firm for a period of 10 years. After 10 years, the plant and land will automatically be transferred to the railways,” he said, adding the railways intended to make the new plant functional in April next year.The new plant will have the capacity to clean eight tonne linen in two shifts per day, Thakur said and added the contract with the Digha agency was valid till April 2019. According to sources, bed rolls, pillow covers and face towels are supplied by the Danapur division to the AC coaches of 18 pairs of mail and express trains originating from Patna Junction, Rajendra Nagart Terminal, Pataliputra Junction and Danapur station. The installation of a mechanized laundry plant will also enhance cleanliness. The automated system will also iron and package the linen sets, the sources said.
