Budge Budge (BGB): The bogie manufacturing factory at Budge Budge, the foundation stone for which was laid by Mamata on January 11, 2011, commenced production in March, 2015 and will supply 600 LHB bogie frames to Rail Coach Factory (RCF), Kapurthala every year as planned.
Production has also started at the DEMU factory at Haldia and the two at Dankuni supplying spares to Diesel Locomotive Works (DLW), Varanasi and Chittaranjan Locomotive Works (CLW).
“The unit at Budge Budge was originally called the AC Container & Bogie Manufacturing Factory and the investment was to
be Rs.59.3 Crore. Now it is known as the Coach Bogie Frame Factory and the project cost has gone up to Rs 149 crore. The factory is manufacturing FIAT bogie frames that offer superior riding quality, higher safety and have lower maintenance requirements. These bogie frames will facilitate Indian Railways’ plan to switch over from the manufacture of conventional steel coaches to LHB stainless steel ones,” a senior official said.
Indian Railways used coaches primarily manufactured by Integral Coach Factory, Perambur, till some were imported from Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) in Germany. These stainless steel coaches with more riding comfort were initially used in the Rajdhani Expresses. Later, the LHB coaches started being manufactured at RCF under licence from Alstom LHB GmbH (Alstom took over the company in 1998). The Indian Railways then took a decision to switch over from conventional coaches to LHB ones for all important mail/express trains.
The unit of CLW at Dankuni has also started production and is expected to roll out the first high horsepower electric locomotive by the end of this year.

New Delhi:
Ninety-nine years after scores of Indians, mainly Sikhs, fell to the bullets of the British after their ship, Komagata Maru, was forced to return to Indian waters from Canada, the Centre has named the railway station at the spot of the bloodshed in West Bengal after Komagata Maru.The Budge Budge railway station on Kolkata’s outskirts was from where the British forcibly tried to send back Indian passengers of Komagata Maru to Punjab to prevent them from consolidating at the height of the Ghadar movement in 1914.A year ahead of the Ghadar centenary, the Centre has named the railway station as “Komagata Maru Budge Budge station” to salute the martyrs of September 29, 1914. This is the first Indian memoir of
the victims. So far, the sole reminders of the Budge Budge incident were two plaques: one near the Gateway to the Pacific in Vancouver and another at Ross Street Gurdwara in Vancouver.
The Budge Budge riot is significant in the Ghadar history as it culminated in a massacre of Indians by the British, who didn’t want them to land in Kolkata and wanted them instead to return to Punjab.
The ship — Komagata Maru — a Japanese streamliner, itself is iconic in the Ghadar tradition for its complex journey from Hong Kong to Canada and then India. Records show that a wealthy Sikh businessman Bhai Gurdit Singh hired the ship in 1914 to challenge the exclusionist Canadian laws, which sought to prevent the so-called “brown invasion” by Indian immigrants.
The ship reached Vancouver on May 23, 1914 but was forced to go back two months after it anchored in Canada. Meanwhile, its passengers had developed an anti-British sentiment under the influence of Ghadar literature.
On its way back, the ship sailed to Calcutta instead of Hong Kong and was stopped by the British, who detained its passengers demanding their return to Punjab from the Budge Budge station. Resistance was met with firing that killed 29 Indians and injured the minor son of Gurdit Singh who escaped to safety.
