Navi Mumbai: The Panvel railway station will soon get a pre-paid taxi and auto facility. The RTO Panvel office had sent a proposal to provide a 10x10ft land for an office for the services. Panvel station manager D K Gupta said, "The service could not be started due to a railway policy (that allows such service at A-1 class railway stations). The policy has changed now."
Deputy RTO Panvel Anand Patil said they had asked for a 10x10ft land for an office but the railways have agreed for a 6x10ft land. The proposal will hopefully be cleared with the policy change, Patil added.
pre-paid taxis and autorickshaws will have a GPS system. Those availing the service will tender the charges and Rs 10 extra before boarding the vehicle. The service is exactly like at the airport," the deputy RTO said.
The office will be maintained by the taxi and autorickshaw unions. —Umesh K Parida

Panvel is one of the fastest growing region of the Mumbai Metropolitan Area and is the terminal station of the Mumbau Suburban harbour line.
It is important station for long distance trains connecting to BCT-NDLS route at Vasai and connecting to konkan Railway at Roha-MAO-Mangalore-Ernaklulam-TVC. Another single line linkage for Pune too is planned for doubling. With initiation of Konkan Rly doubling, the number of long distance trains passing through Panvel shall increase drastically. Further, after commissioning of the under construction Panvel long distance passenger terminal, it is just a matter of year for Panvel RS to become A class. It has potential to be A1 class in another 5 years if the terminus is given its due importance and adequate
trains originate from here to facilitate Navi Mumbai Residents.

Also,...

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
