STATE GOVT INACTION, LIP SERVICE BY NFR LEAVES TRAVELLERS IN THE LURCH
A series of news reports in Nagaland Post highlighting lack of political will by the state government to act on land encroachers within Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) Dimapur, had attracted reaction from two legislators from Dimapur who have called for the state to immediately intervene in order to ensure expansion and development of Dimapur railway station in the larger interests of travelling public.According to NFR sources, encroachment has come in the way of expansion plans that are forcing projects to die premature deaths on the drawing board. The source said funds are not a problem for upgrading and expansion of Dimapur if land is made available. According to the source,
...

large tracts have been encroached on both sides of the station over which pattas have been issued.Eviction has been hampered by litigations that have dragged on for decades in the court. The NFR cannot wait perpetually to expand services to passengers as well as for ferrying goods in the region. NFR had plans to install escalator (like in Guwahati) but had to be abandoned and whatever facelift was given had to be done on the existing infrastructure. NFR also had plans to increase the present number of platform from two to five but even the one of them platform No.2 has no canopy due to lack of sufficient space.Land encroachment seems to have provided the excuse for the NFR to begin the diversion of a planned double–track that would have run through Dimapur. However, due to encroachments, measures are being undertaken to divert the planned double-track by skirting Dimapur. The new track breaking off from Dhansiri station through Dillai will bypass Dimapur and eventually reconnect with the Bokajan station.If land was available in Dimapur, the Dhansiri-Dimapur-Bokajan stretch would have an additional track. The double-track would have enabled trains to move in both directions, while shortening the mandatory stops for slower trains.Rightly or not, the perspective at NFR over Dimapur seems to be negated by encroachment and other problems. These have justified the consistent steps to decrease or downgrade the importance of Dimapur railway station. One of the ways by which Dimapur railway station is being systematically deprived of due share is with regard to quota of reserved seats.For instance, passengers at Dimapur have to buy tickets emanating at Jorhat, Furkating, Mariani or even Tinsukia for onward journey to Guwahati and beyond. This is because the quota for Dimapur is meagre in comparison with the volume of passengers.Instead of getting more trains to meet the number of travellers at Dimapur, which has earned huge revenue for NFR, the officials claimed that Dimapur railway station lacked basic facilities to be a termination point such as– AC coach, proper water supply, cleaning etc.Although there are around 3000 to 4000 passengers every day at Dimapur railway station, it has been allotted only 12 seats for 1st AC, 140 for 2nd AC, 347 for 3rd AC, 583 for Sleepers, 50 for AC Chairs and 186 for 2nd Class Sitting.Dimapur passengers are compelled to buy tickets at counters or online from quotas of Jorhat, Mariani or Tinsukia etc. The revenue will not be credited to Dimapur but to these stations in Assam. This is one way where Dimapur railway station’s revenue earning for NFR which till 2020 was the second highest has gone down even though the volume of travelling passengers remains high.Once the Silchar-Jiribam route goes functional, revenue generation at Dimapur would be affected. When that happens, Manipur would have the option of skirting Dimapur to haul its goods via Silchar.The systemic step-motherly treatment meted out to Dimapur can be seen in the manner in which NFR has taken away some trains meant for Dimapur passengers.The NFR has ‘hijacked’ Nagaland Express introduced on November 5, 2011, between Kamakhya Junction to Dimapur Railway Station (DMV) and terminating (holding back) at Dimapur. Presently Nagaland Express has been taken to Ledo in 2020 and now terminates at Ledo instead of Dimapur.The train is the only express (non-stop train) especially allotted for Dimapur. It may be recalled that NFR had also “hijacked” Dimapur-Guwahati Jan Shatabdi allotted during 1996-97 to Jorhat.The only train stopping at Dimapur (out of nearly 30 other trains) is B.G. EXPRESS – 15666, DIMAPUR (DMV) To GUWAHATI (GHY).Officials of NFR have said many times about plans to make Dimapur railway station into a world class station. However, the difference between promise and delivery appears to be too wide. While other state governments fight even to establish a small station, the state government seems to be more interested in projects rather than genuinely promoting existing rail and air travel to boost trade and tourism.

Kohima: On the occasion of the 72nd Republic Day celebration, Nagaland governor RN Ravi in his message to the people expressed his desire to make Nagaland a state which has a decent network of road and rail connectivity in two years.
Ravi made the statement while speaking about accelerating the infrastructural development in the state. He informed that the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has taken up the initiative of building 952 km road at the cost of Rs 10,972 crore, for which the work is in progress.

last year, Union minister MoRTH Nitin Gadkari laid the foundation for 14 National Highway (NH) projects in Nagaland and inaugurated one National Highway project.
The 15 NH projects cover a total length of 270 km for Rs 4,127 crore. Till December last year, 44 NH works covering a total length of 833 km for Rs 9,320 Crore, and 11 additional works covering 230 km at Rs 2,332 crore was sanctioned by the ministry.
Regarding the rail connectivity, the governor said that the Ministry of Railways is bringing rail connectivity near the State capital by investing Rs 7,114.55 crore in building the Dhansiripar-Zubza railway line. The work for Dhansiri to Zubza rail route began in March 2019 by the Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR).
He urged the people, particularly the village authorities to help, and co-operate with the concerned authorities for speedy execution of the roads and railway projects. “We must take optimum advantage of building as many village roads under PMGSY [Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana],” he said.
"By 2022, when the country will be celebrating the 75th year of Independence, Nagaland must have a decent network of road and rail infrastructure," he said. He then said that India’s renaissance includes Nagaland in equal measure.

first ever railway tunnel was dug on 7 June at the outskirts of Chumukedima, about 15 km from Dimapur town.
The 82.3-km rail line from Dimapur to Kohima will run through Dhansiri-Dhansiripar-Shoxuvi-Molvom- Khaibong-Chephema-Khabvuma-Zubza at 900 m above sea level. The line will have 20 tunnels spanning 26 km besides 19 major bridges and is under the broad gauge railway project to be executed in three phases.
Officials of the North East Frontier Railway in Dimapur said that they are looking to run trains till Shoxuvi by December this year while the target is to complete all the three phases by 2022. This is a huge achievement — a breakthrough in this hilly and rough terrain, given that transport is a major hindrance for people in the North-east and it greatly impacts the economy and development of the region.
Railway connectivity is a major boost not only in terms of the economy but also social advancement. The absence of proper connectivity had isolated the region leading to no interaction even within the states let alone with people outside the region. Besides technical challenges, monsoon, which lasts for at least five to six months in a state like Nagaland, automatically halts the work.
Festivals, religious holidays and frequent shutdowns also add to the number of non-working days. Albeit at a snail’s pace, changes are taking shape in the North-east at large and Nagaland in particular. “The general public wants development,” said a NEFR official at the Chumukedima tunnel site, adding that there has been no major hindrance in the progress of the railway project.
As land is central to the lives of indigenous people in the North-east, acquisition of the same did cause a few hiccups with age-old community landholding systems. The Dimapur-Kohima rail line is part of the central government’s ambitious plan to connect all state capitals in the North-east with the railways. The Dimapur-Kohima project, with an estimated budget of Rs 500 crore, kicked off in 2016 with then Union minister for railways, Suresh Prabhu, laying the foundation stone.
Meanwhile, progress in terms of rail connectivity has been made in other North-east states too. In Manipur, a railway line between Jiribam and Imphal via Tupul is expected to be completed by 2019-20 and it would connect Imphal with the broad gauge network of the country. Reportedly, work is on in full swing. The project comprises a special bridge with 141 metre-high pillars, which would supposedly be the tallest in the world.
The Imphal-Jiribam line will roughly cover 110 km. The southernmost landlocked state of the North-east, Mizoram, saw a historic development as the first broad gauge freight train rolled into Bhairabi station — two km inside the state — in March 2016. With 10 stations, the 84-km rail line stretches between Katakhal (Assam) to Bhairabi (Mizoram) and covers Algapur, Hailakandi, Monacherra, Lalabazar, Mahamadpur, Katlicherra, Manipur Bagan, Jamira and Ramnathpur in between.
The project, with an estimated cost of Rs 326.51 crore, has 52 curves — the sharpest being seven degrees — besides 16 major and 161 minor bridges. Furthermore, another 51.38 km extension from Bhairabi to Sariang — 20 km inside Mizoram — is underway and expected to be functional soon. Reportedly, a survey has also been conducted for possible new routes from Sairang to Hmawngbuchhuah on the south, bordering Myanmar.
Earlier this year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Garjee- Belonia railway line in Tripura. The 23.325 km railway line, which is located close to the India-Bangladesh border, passes through four out of eight districts of the state — West Tripura (Agartala), Sepahijala (Bishramganj), Gomati (Udaipur) and South Tripura (Belonia). The Naharlagun-Dekargaon railway line in Arunachal Pradesh was opened in April 2014.
Before that Arunachal Pradesh had only 1.26 km of railway line inside its border with the only station being Bhalukpong in East Kameng district. In line with the railway’s goal of providing connectivity to all state capitals of the Northeastern region, a survey was conducted in 1997 for a new line from Harmuti to Itanagar.
The massive railway links will foster connections between the Northeast states apart from connecting the region with “mainland” India. Besides the economic factor, it will also be a major boost for people-to-people contact as transport and movement will become more frequent, convenient and cheap. Moreover, efforts are being put into road construction with the four-lane Asian Highway comprising the Dimapur-Kohima-Imphal-Moreh road. As such massive constructions are taking off; it brings into the picture governance and administration of railways in the North-east. Daily commuters in the region would have witnessed the scene in stations — large crowds thronging trains once they halt on the platforms.
The worry is, in the North-east, passengers never bother to travel on a reserved or confirmed ticket. This happens even in air-conditioned coaches. For instance, the seating capacity of eight on a berth would have no less than 10 adults vying for space. Of them, only two or three would be travelling on a reserved ticket.
The general compartment is a sight to behold. Compartments are fully loaded and space is occupied from the aisles to the toilet doors. On the other hand, platforms have no functioning signs to tell passengers where each coach will stand. Also, the compartments are full of waste. A child would do the cleaning job and get a small payment from some kind-hearted passengers. The condition of sanitation is another major concern with people running or hopping from one platform to another.
Vendors can be seen doing brisk business right on the tracks. With infrastructure slowly progressing under the NEFR, it is hoped that the administration, monitoring of passengers and functioning of trains in the North-east would eventually become more efficient. Hopefully, train stations will also have a facelift with better services, functioning escalators and good quality catering services.

Tunnelling on Dhansiri-Zubza rail line begins at Chümoukedima village
As part of the Central government’s ambitious plan to connect all State Capitals with rail-head, tunnelling on the hilly area from Chümoukedima till Zubza began with the first tunnel dugout at Chümoukedima village on Friday. The 72-metre tunnel was dug using the conventional method of tunnelling using a hydraulic hammer attached to the tip on an excavator.
The proposed new rail route by Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) in Nagaland will cover 82.3 km from Dhansiri to its terminal station at Zubza. Work for the

project began in March this year and the arduous and long-drawn task of tunnelling, building numerous bridges and laying tracks is expected to be completed in two years.  
The 82.3-km stretch will have 20 tunnels spanning 26 km, besides 19 major bridges. The longest bridge to be built at Sirima village is estimated to be 700 meters long, while the longest tunnel measuring 6.4 km will be dug at Chaphema village. Once operational, the railway route will pass through Dhansiri-Dhansiripar-Shoxuvi-Molvom- Sirima- -Chephema-Khabvuma before culminating at Zubza, which is around 900 metres above the plains of Dimapur. 
An official from NFR explained that a railway station at Kohima was not feasible as it was situated around 1,444 metres above sea level, “too steep for a rail head”, adding that there was also the lack of space. He also informed the media that the route from Dhansiri to Shoxuvi was expected to be operational by December this year.
On Friday, Nagaland Post visited two sites where tunnelling was underway and another site where the next tunnel would soon be drilled. While the drilling for a 72-metre tunnel at Chumoukedima village was completed on Friday, drilling for a much longer 824-metre tunnel is currently underway near Kukidolong. A longer tunnel (3 km) from Chumoukedima village to New Chumoukedima will be drilled next.
The exaction method currently employed at Kukidolong is the New Australian Tunnelling Method (NATM), a method that is believed to have revolutionized modern tunnelling industry and currently used in many modern day tunnels. Also dubbed as the “design as you go” approach, NATM is based on the study of behaviour of rock masses under load and monitoring performance of underground rocks during construction. 
NFR has incorporated state-of-the-art machinery for its drilling with an imported boring machine from Switzerland.
Keeping in mind safety of the workers, NFR is in consultation with Geological Survey of India (GSI) to understand the landslide patterns and history on the routes. Also taking into account the constantly shifting tectonic plates and fault lines that can develop over a period of time, conscious effort is being made to ensure that the route is perpendicular and not along the tectonic plates.
The NFR official explained that unlike Rishikesh where rocks were blasted during excavation, the soil in Nagaland was primarily of stale soil or mud stone, as referred by geologists, which made tunnelling a difficult task as the soil easily absorbed water, making it slippery and thereby also increasing risks of landslides. This nature of the soil also increased the pressure on the walls of the tunnels, he added.
Another challenge is water pockets that can cause seepage during excavations. Taking cognizance of these challenges, engineers at the site have embedded pressure cells along the inner walls of the tunnel to check for increase in weight.
The NFR official claimed that contractors were determined to finish the project within the stipulated time. There are also currently no major hurdles except for the earth cutting and filling that had to be halted in Pherima due to the monsoon. The biggest hurdle so far had been the land ownership dispute in Sirema, though compensation had not been a problem, the official added.

Indian Railway is likely to spend almost Rs 90,000 crore to improve connectivity in the North East by 2020, including a 795-km railway line in Arunachal Pradesh that will provide accessibility right up to the China border, and connections between the capitals of all North Eastern states.
“We have set a target of 2020 to connect these state capitals to the main railway network. Once these are complete, new trains which would directly link these to the metros will be introduced. This will not only help regional connectivity within these states, but also bring NE closer to the rest of India,” said A K Yadav, Chief Administrative Officer (Construction), NFR.
While

Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Tripura are connected by rail, the capitals of Mizoram, Meghalaya, Manipur, Sikkim and Nagaland are not. Of these, Mizoram capital Aizawl is likely to be connected first with the new line between Bhairabi and Sairang (51.38km) in advanced stage of construction.
For providing connectivity to Gangtok, work up to Rangpo has been sanctioned which is around 40 km short of the Assam capital and for Nagaland, NFR is building the Dhansiri-Sukhobi-Zubza 91.75 km line with 90 bridges and around 26 km of tunnels connecting it to Assam.
“Sairang is approximately 18 km from Aizawl. We have no presence in Sikkim so far and to provide connectivity to Gangtok, work up to Rangpo has been sanctioned. Rangpo is around 40km short of Gangtok and work between Gangtok and Rangpo will be taken up in phase two,” said AK Yadav. Indian Railways is waiting for a clearance for some of the other lines.
While Guwahati and Itanagar are already connected to the national network, the capital towns of Mizoram, Manipur, Nagaland and Meghalaya have now been taken up for linkages.
Manipur will be connected through a 111-km-long line from Jiribam to Imphal with 37 tunnels and 22 bridges, the capital city of Mizoram will be on the railways’ map through a 52-km new line between Sairang near Aizawl and Bairabi bordering Assam.
Progress in the Byrnihat-Shillong corridor in Meghalaya was affected due to opposition from the Khasi Student Union. The railway is yet to receive a no objection certificate for land acquisition, which has not been given so far by Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council.
In Sikkim, Indian Railways is awaiting clearance from the forest department but is hopeful of completing all the projects by 2020.
On the international front, close to China border, Railways has undertaken final land survey of three different lines and will submit the report to the Ministry of Defence.
“Owing to long international border, northeast region has huge requirement for providing railway network from strategic considerations. MoD has identified 14 projects across the country of which four were selected as priority corridors. Except for Pathankot-Leh, the other three projects fall in the northeast region,” Yadav added.
The lines once commissioned will also help the movement of foodgrain, cement, sugar and other utilities to the northeast and will give a huge boost to tourism.
