Feb 13 2017 (16:33)   Central Railways: Agitation on the tracks delays trains by 20 minutes

There was at least a 20 minute delay on the central and trans-harbour lines this afternoon, after people living in slums near Thane-Airoli and Thane-Kalwa station staged a rail roko against the demolition of illegal structures by the local Corporation. It led to disruption of train services between Kalwa, Airoli and Thane on Monday afternoon. The protest affected Up and Down services on the Kalwa-Airoli route and Thane-Airoli route, with some commuters being stuck for around 20 minutes.
Speaking with Mirror, Narendra Patil, Chief Public Relations Officer, Central Railway, Mumbai, said, "It is very unfortunate that people unnecessarily target railways for their protests on any and every issue. Protests and violence on railways is a very sensitive issue as it impacts lives
of many. Why block train services and make commuters suffer? This has become a regular activity now."
The incident occurred between 1.30 pm to 1.50 pm. He added, "The local authorities are demolishing illegal slums structures and encroachments so those who were affected staged their agitation on the railway tracks. They squatted on the railway tracks for twenty minutes, affecting the central and trans-harbour lines. As a result, the trains got delayed. Police officials reached the spot on time and took strict action against the protesters but twenty-five minutes lost are gone."
Recently, hundreds of people living in Indira Nagar slums near Titwala station staged a rail roko against the demolition of illegal structures by the Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC), disrupting services between Kalyan and Kasara on the central line. In another incident, a mob had protested near Dombivli station to protest against demolition of slums on railway land.

Beijing: Establishing a balance between work and personal life is something that every young working professional in the world can relate to, and when your job is to ensure security of a large number of people on a daily basis, it becomes even more difficult.
People missing out on important moments in life is not new in a hectic lifestyle for the present generation, but a police officer in China was about to miss his own wedding for his duty, when he and his significant other came up with a plan.
Zhang Qinghua
and his bride Huang Mengjiao had planned to get married on January 23, but being a part of armed police, Zhang was busy in his duty for the upcoming celebrations on the 28th January for the Chinese New Year.
In order to make sure that duty didn’t come in the way of the special day, Huang took a train to Zhejiang province to meet Zhang and the couple tied the knot on the railway platform in a brief yet adorable wedding ceremony, with Zhang’s colleague’s in attendance.
The heart warming incident is a reminder of how police officials have to sacrifice a lot from their life and miss out on several moments in order to maintain dedication to their duty.

Whatever is written in the above news article is half correct. Yes travelled between daund to gulbarga below are the updates.
Between daund and bhigvan wires are hanging on ohe but section not electrified and sub station work is going on in between.
Coming to doubling in Maharashtra double was seen in patches somewhere near kem station after bhigvan at some places levelling work is done but no track work can be seen.
mohol track work is seen between akkalkot and tilati with track linking work is done and signals are placed.
After tilati station small bridges were constructed looking at the pace of work I felt that the work maybe over in next two years as they are in no hurry to complete the work.
After akkalkot minor works here and there can be seen and the ground leveling work was already done by the old contractor though big bridges are not yet touched.
After that coming to gulbarga electrification done wires are hanging on ohe but not connected to substation and electrification work not done on main station and not connected between wadi station and the next station towards wadi.
Worst was that though some sections were electrified still diesel locs are running under wires which is waste of money. Last time in the month of august the situation was same as mentioned above just a few kms are added or wikk be added. Pathetic planning execution and waste of money by railways.

Oct 30 2016 (21:52)   Hint of EMU trains from Pune to Daund

Cheetah   91 news posts
Entry# 2042504   News Entry# 284394         Tags   Past Edits
PIMPRI CHINCHWAD: EMU trains can be a reality on the Lonavla-Pune-Daund route, provided the railways declare the Pune-Daund section a suburban area.
Divisional railway manager of Pune B K Dadabhoy said at a meeting of the railway users' committee on Thursday there was a proposal for running suburban local trains on the Lonavla-Pune-Daund section. Officials stressed if the railways announced the Pune-Daund section was a suburban area, the Pune division of the Central Railways could work on the proposal of running EMU trains.
EMU (electric multiple unit) trains can now run between Pune
and Daund because the Rail Vikas Nigam Limited has completed the electrification work in the Pune-Daund-Bhigwan (102km) section. All trains are running on electric power now on this route now.
A total of 40 pairs of EMU trains run on the Pune-Lonavla route. There has been a long pending demand to run local trains in the Lonavla-Pune-Daund section. At present, local trains in the Pune-Daund section run on diesel engines.
Unlike diesel engine operated local trains which run at a slow speed, the EMU trains are much faster. On the Pune-Lonavla route (64kms), the EMU train takes 90 minutes. The same speed can be attained on the 76km Pune-Daund section. Express trains on Pune-Daund section takes about 70 minutes with a diesel locomotive. The time taken is likely to go down with the introduction of electric locomotives.
