Nashik: BJP MLA Mangesh Chavan, representing the Chalisgaon assembly constituency, has warned of an agitation if the Deolali-Bhusawal passenger service was not resumed by February 10.“Residents of Chalisgaon, the taluka headquarters, largely depend on the passenger train from Deolali (Nashik) to Bhusawal for their travel to the district headquarter in Jalgaon for employment and education purposes. If the train is not started by the February 10, then I will stage an agitation against railways,” Chavan told TOI over the phone.
The MLA said that he has written to the rail minister and others seeking immediate resumption of the passenger train between major stations.
to Chavan, many people have been using the “road route”, but there have been several accidents. “It is clear that train service is not only cost-effective but also safe. Hence we are stressing on the starting of passenger or shuttle services,” Chavan said.
Chavan said the local train service in Mumbai is starting for everyone with time restrictions. “Why is the railways not taking a similar decision people in the rural areas who are dependent on the bigger cities for education, health and employment?” he asked.
Divisional railway manager Vivek Kumar Gupta, in response to a social media message, said the suggestions were noted and the Central Railway headquarters was apprised.

According to a report by ET, the government is planning to increase the number of Kisan Rail trains under the Indian Railways, which transport vegetables and fruits to different parts of the country, to help farmers get better prices and reduce wastage, which is to the extent of 15%. “Currently, we are running four Kisan Rail trains. There has been more demand for running such trains as farmers are getting benefits. The Indian Railways, in close coordination with the agriculture ministry, is planning to introduce more trains and routes,” said a senior agriculture department official.
Stations connected
present, Kisan Rail trains are ferrying fruits and vegetables, connecting Devlali in Maharashtra to Muzaffarpur in Bihar, Ananthpur to New Delhi, Bengaluru to Hazrat Nizamuddin and Nagpur to Delhi. The Nagpur-Delhi train carried oranges from Nagpur and the itinerary is yet to be regularised.
Bringing down wastage
“The travel time of these trains has been cut more than 50% due to less traffic on routes. The Indian Railways is currently running a lesser number of passenger trains, facilitating swifter movement of goods trains. People are getting fresh fruits and vegetables. Wastage has also come down significantly,” said the official.
Bringing Kashmiri apples
Indian Railways minister Piyush Goyal, who also handles food and consumer affairs portfolio, recently said that the government was planning to introduce Kisan Rail trains in Kashmir to transport apples to various parts of the country. “We have decided to procure 12 lakh tonnes of apples in Kashmir this year through our agency Nafed. I feel bad people having imported apples when we have quality produce in Kashmir. We want these apples to be transported all across the country,” Goyal had said.
Central Railways shine
Central Railway recently stated that more than 400 tonnes of fruits have been loaded in November this year. "Central Railway is a centre for loading fruits like Guava, Custard Apple and Bananas in Bengaluru -Adarsh Nagar Delhi Kisan Rail, more than 400 tonnes of fruits have been loaded in November this year here," Central Railway tweeted on its official page. Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has announced the operation of Kisan Rail on a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) basis in this year's budget to ensure speedy transportation of putrescible things like fruits, vegetables, milk etc.

As the central government looks to expand runs of its much-talked-about Kisan Rail — started a few months back for transporting agricultural commodities —it could draw lessons from a similar experiment in transporting farm goods launched a few years ago.
Experts say though the project looks promising on paper and the initial trips have been fairly successful, just running wagon and coaches filled with fruits and vegetables won’t be enough.
According to them, the transportation has to be supplemented with proper back-end and front-end support. This support has to be in
the form of sorting and grading facility, pack-houses, efficient distribution through refer vans and other channels at the destination station.
All these will ensure that goods quickly reach the consumers with minimal damage. Or else, the project may achieve limited success. The total logistical cost for a transporter, which includes handling cost from farm to warehouses, then to the rail heads and to the final destination, also needs to be competitive compared to other modes of transport. This will make Kisan Rail successful and worthwhile, they said.
In the recent past, Kisan Rail has been the second attempt by the Centre to run specially dedicated trains for carrying agriculture goods, mainly perishable items. A few years back, an almost similar experiment was launched by the agriculture ministry to run fully-loaded refrigerated containers to transport perishables, protein and milk, among others, from one part of the country to another, with a private partner.
Called, the ‘Horti Trains’ (short-form for Horticulture Trains), officials who were part of the project that was started in 2012-13 on an experimental basis, say that the idea was to involve private logistics players called Private Container Train Operators (PCTOs) in the running of these trains.
These operators were required to pay an upfront licence fee and rent to run trains. IIT-Kharagpur was asked to design the refrigerated containers for the special trains. However, one basic flaw which several experts pointed out was that the locomotive for such trains was to be provided by the Indian Railways along with the transportation schedule. This sometimes lead to delay in execution. During the planning stage, a dispute also arose as to whether these trains could pick up and drop containers on-route or all containers needed to be fully loaded at their station of origin and emptied at the destination.
“Imagine a train having almost 90 containers filled with bananas reaching a city like Delhi suddenly. The markets will obviously crash, leading to losses for everyone in the value chain,” Pawanexh Kohli, former chief executive and advisor to India’s National Centre for Cold-chain Development (NCCD), said.
According to some studies, in Delhi 11,600 tonnes of banana, 18,600 tonnes of tomato, 23,500 tonnes of onion and 54,000 tonnes of potato are consumed every month. None of them are produced in the capital and have to be transported from neighbouring or distant places.
Kohli said several containers ran empty while rent for the entire rake had to be paid. This was of no value either to the shipper or the final buyer of the products. Finally, after several twists and turns, the project was abandoned in 2016.
The newly-launched Kisan Rail is structurally and fundamental different from the Horti Trains.
The Kisan trains are run and operated by the Indian Railways and secondly, unlike private refrigerated containers, Kisan Rail, is meant to transport a variety of fruits and vegetables with a 50 per cent subsidy. This is provided by the ministry of food processing.
At present, three Kisan rails have started on a weekly basis while a fourth one from Nagpur and Warud Orange City (Maharashtra) to Adarsh Nagar, Delhi, is being planned.
“The Kisan Rail is an excellent initiative for small farmers who produce vegetables or other perishable goods with limited shelf life. When an opportunity like this is presented to the small holders, they can get easy access to moving their agriculture produce from villages to metro cities. They will surely benefit from it,” said Sanjay Borkar, chief executive officer (CEO) and co-founder of FarmERP, a smart agriculture management ERP software platform.
The railways has always been transporting a variety of food items, but its share in transportation of perishables such as fruits and vegetables is among the lowest in all commodities.
Road is the preferred mode for shippers and aggregators of fruits and vegetables. A big reason for this is the time taken to move goods, which the Kisan Rail seeks to address. According to a study done by the erstwhile Planning Commission on the transportation systems in the country, less than 3 per cent of fruits and vegetables that move in the country in a given period is through railways while the remaining 97 per cent is through road.
For non-perishable food items such as sugar, wheat and rice, the share of Railways according to the study was at 30 per cent for wheat, 32 per cent for rice and 24 per cent for sugar and khandsari.
“Farmers’ produce largely travels through road as it is cost-effective. Therefore, factors such as handling cost will need to be looked at for Kisan Rail. It also needs to be seen whether the return cargoes are coming booked or not. All these need to be carefully analysed before arriving at any conclusion,” said Jagannarayan Padmanabhan, director, CRISIL Infrastructure Advisory.

The monthly pass of Panchavati Express, which connects Mumbai and Nashik, which was earlier priced between Rs 2,000 and Rs 3,000, now costs passengers nearly Rs 25,000 per month.
Panchavati Express, that connects Mumbai and Nashik in Maharashtra, has resumed operations as a COVID-special train. However, this comes with hiked ticket prices of as much as Rs 25,000 per month.
While the train resumed services on September 12 after remaining suspended for months due to the nationwide lockdown imposed to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, it does not allow purchase of
monthly season tickets.
The train, running between Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) and Manmad in Nashik district, makes halts at Dadar, Kalyan, Devlali, Nashik Road, Niphad and Lasalgaon.
According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, passengers are required to either buy tickets online or through the reservation counter at costs between Rs 300 and Rs 500 for a one-way journey, depending on the seat. Essential workers are also required to purchase these tickets at hiked prices.
However, the greater problem is being faced by commuters who travel between Nashik and Mumbai on daily basis for work.
Passengers who are completely dependent on this service and have no other option said that it is unaffordable as per the report.
The monthly pass use to cost them between Rs 2,000 and Rs 3,000 earlier.
Now, the price has risen to nearly Rs 25,000 per month.
