Yesterday (19:39)   Indian Railways: New Delhi railway station set to get world class makeover through South Korean Railways

Entry# 2171156   News Entry# 294294         Tags   Past Edits
South Korea has come forward to redevelop the New Delhi railway station, one of the busiest terminals in the country, as a world-class facility. Catering to more than five lakh passengers in a day, the station will be converted into a swanky complex at an estimated cost of Rs 10,000 crore, offering best facilities and shopping experience to travellers, according to an ambitious plan unveiled by the railways. Besides the multi-storey station building with separate sections for departures and arrivals, there is a provision for three skyscrapers for commercial use at the Ajmeri Gate side of the station which handles 361 trains a day.
South Korean Railways has shown keenness for the redevelopment of New Delhi station, said a senior Railway Ministry
official. The railways has explored the possibility of redeveloping the station leveraging commercial development of vacant land and air space in and around the station and has submitted a detailed plan with a possible layout to South Korean Railways. The architectural plan was elaborately drawn up with approach and exit routes, keeping the heavy traffic movement near the station at Connaught Place, the official said.
While passengers waiting for trains will have adequate space on the first floor of the station, those disembarking will go out of the station through platforms on the ground level. The second floor will house offices, as per the plan.If everything goes accordingly, there will be a joint inspection of New Delhi station with South Korean team soon.
These redeveloped station would have digital signage, escalators and elevators, automatic self-ticketing counters, executive lounges and many other facilities for passengers.
The redevelopment of New Delhi station is part of Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu’s emphasis on attracting substantial revenue through redevelopment of 400 stations with private participation.
The railways has recently launched the first phase of the ambitious station redevelopment project for 23 junctions.

Yesterday (19:49)   Railways’ operating ratio touches a record 109% in April-December

rdb*^   125905 news posts
Entry# 2171079   News Entry# 294301         Tags   Past Edits
New Delhi: How much does Indian Railways spend to earn every Rs100 it does in revenue?
In the nine months to December, the national transporter ran up a record-high operating ratio of 109%, meaning it spent Rs109 to generate Rs100, reflecting the competition it is facing from airlines and road transport to carry people and freight.
Operating ratio is a gauge of operational efficiency that measures expenses as a proportion of revenue.
minister Arun Jaitley did not mention this key indicator of Indian Railways’ performance in the speech he made when on 1 February he presented the first general budget in 93 years that incorporated the railways budget.
To be sure, this critical parameter found mention in the 2017-18 budget’s expenditure profile. The revised estimate for Indian Railways’ operating ratio in 2016-17 is 94.9% and 94.6% is the estimate for 2017-18.
“As of now the operating ratio is around 109% but we are hopeful to close it at around 94-95% in financial year 2016-17 where our budget target was 92%,” a senior railway ministry official said on condition of anonymity.
In 2015-16, the operating ratio around the end of November was 96%, but the railways managed to lower it to 92% before closing its books for that fiscal year.
For a railway operator, an operating ratio of 80 or lower is considered desirable.
The disappointing performance is being attributed to the burden of the Seventh Pay Commission’s pay hike recommendations and a fall in demand for coal freight.
“You need to look at things holistically. There are political decisions of not increasing passenger fares, ministries like defence, women and child, etc are not ready to share the subsidy burden given to their beneficiaries; and decreasing freights—all these have brought Indian Railways to this stature,” the official cited above said.
Another government official, who also did not wish to be identified, confirmed that the railways’ operating ratio for the year till 31 December was around 109%. “There are legacy issues which can’t be wished away,” the official added.
A railway ministry spokesperson, in an emailed response said, “The Indian Railways’ resource position has shown a downtrend during 2016-17 primarily due to drop in loading of coal, which constitutes around 50% of the freight loading, in the first six months of the fiscal, along with drop in the lead. The year also saw rise in revenue expenditure due to implementation of the 7th CPC (central pay commission) on pay and pension and increase in prices of HSD (high speed diesel) oil.”
“Since the provision of earnings and expenditure is not uniform in every month/quarter, the provision of Operating Ratio (OR) is assessed on an annual basis at the time of Budget Estimates, Revised Estimates (RE) and in Actuals after the end of financial year,” the spokesperson added.
Indian Railways’ operating ratio has stayed above 90% for the last few years. In 2014-15, the budgeted operating ratio was 92.5%, against which railways was able to achieve 91.3%. In 2015-16, the operating ratio was 90.5% due to savings of Rs8,720 crore.
“Nevertheless noticing the downtrend, a number of measures have been taken to improve the position both on the earnings front as well as to control expenditure. The likely outcome of the measures contemplated has been kept in view while finalizing the RE 2016-17 where the operating ratio is estimated at 94.9%,” the railway ministry spokesperson added.
Rating agency Crisil Ltd paints an optimistic scenario for Indian Railways in a recent research report. As per the report, the railways’ operating ratio will improve to 89-90% by 2021, once its investments start showing results.
“Railways incidentally is facing a lot of challenges not only in terms of its operating ratios but also in terms of the competition that it faces from the road sector. So, the important thing would be how do you modernize the infrastructure in the railways, how do you improve the management of the railways, how do you bring about more transparency in their accounting system,” finance secretary Ashok Lavasa at The Verdict, a conference organized by Mint and CNBC-TV18 on budget 2017.
Former railway board chairman Arunendra Kumar said typically operating ratio improves in the last quarter of a financial year.
“The last three months of the fiscal are crucial and it’s time when freight picks up pace again,” Kumar said.
In budget 2017, Jaitley made a record allocation of Rs1.3 trillion for Indian Railways, with a gross budgetary support of Rs55,000 crore.

This was quite expected. Their is a limit to every thing, for the sake of compensating loss from Passenger segment Railways regularly increased the freight tariffs and now it's among the highest in the world bcoz of which Business Houses & traders moved towards Road Transportation. Now Suresh Prabhu is Doing the same thing with Passenger segment too, for Compensating the loss from Sub-urban, Unreserved and Sleeper class subsidized ticket fares AC class fare has been increased indirectly by bringing this Surge Pricing/Dynamic pricing or by applying some weird cess but passengers aren't that much ignorant as the Railway thinks. now, they are opting for Air travel in Budget Airlines or luxury Bus service for Short distance journeys bcoz of which despite the increment in no. of people traveling in train the OR of passenger segment has increased a lot too.

While you have rightly highlighted the unpopular steps taken in the passenger and freight segments in terms of fares, there is a larger problem in hand for the railways, and more alarmingly, it is not a problem created by the railway policies, but due to external factors.
While the passenger segment has suffered due to dynamic pricing, the hit has been largely in terms of passenger count. For premium trains like the Rajdhani, there has been a marginal increase in the revenue ( though at the cost of number of passengers).
click here
And overall too, the contribution of the passenger segment is not really high enough to skew the operating ratio in this manner. Also, this particular year, IR saw a 20% increase in passenger reservation revenue, post demonetization for the month of November.

But a general unpopularity of these measures tends to divert public opinion away from the main problem that the railways is facing, 'The reduction in Coal loading'.

Re# 2171079-7            Tags   Past Edits
IR depends on coal for almost 65% of it's freight traffic. For the past decade and more, traditionally the coal traffic would increase in the winter i.e., the December to February period, and bail out IR which would be operating at a high operating ratio till November ( This years 109% is not really a first time, nor is it unexpected). But for the past 2 years and in particular this year, the demand for Coal movement has greatly fallen.
Ironically, this fall this due to a somewhat good decision taken by the BJP government. The BJP government has rationalized all the coal linkages in the country in the past 2 years. Because of this, now coal
only has to travel short distances from the point of mining to the power plant. This severely hit the railways' main revenue source, the shipping of coal in the 1500-2000km segment. Further more, the power distribution system has also been revamped and they are preferring to supply power over large distances by utilizing better power grids instead of setting up power plants in remote areas and supplying coal all the way. This has proven to be the biggest hit for IR, which depends heavily on Coal transport.
You can see a detailed break-up of this problem here in this well-written report. : click here
It may look like an attempt to cover-up a less than stellar performance from the RM, but in reality, I'd really pity anyone in Suresh Prabhu's position now. Not only is the railway's facing serious competition from other means of transport, even the segments that the railway depends on, for it's revenue, are dwindling away leaving him practically no room to increase revenues in anyway! The hit in coal traffic alone deals a much larger blow to the railways than any of the more publicly scrutinized decisions the ministry has taken!!
