Oct 12 2016 (12:27)   Security stepped up at Pune Railway station over rising robbery cases

After a gang of autorickshaw drivers was nabbed for robbing the passengers after picking them up from Pune Railway Station, the government Railway Police have increased the surveillance at the station premises and have started making announcements asking passengers to take precautions while boarding as well as during the travel.
Earlier this month, the cyber cell of Pune Police had busted a gang of autorickshaw drivers who had looted over 50 people in a year. They picked up passengers from the Pune station and stopped their vehicle in midway, claiming a break down. They would then offer to arrange for an alternative vehicle and called an acquaintance, who later robbed the passenger.
are taking all efforts to fix this issue, starting by making announcements at the station to aware passengers of the possibility of people using nefarious means. We have also increased the patrolling at the premises to weed out such elements. We are also trying to keep out make it compulsory for all the rickshaw drivers to display the identity cards issued by the Regional Transport Office (RTO).”
Apart from latest allegations, the rickshaw drivers at the station have also been alleged of overcharging, behaving rudely and harassing passengers by nagging them to hire the autorickshaw the moment they exit from the main gate.
Shreedhar Salunke, a salesperson employed with a Pimple Gurav-based firm, complained that although there is a prepaid autorickshaw booth at the station, it’s difficult to hire the rickshaw. “As soon as you exit the main gate, they pounce on you but none of them is ready to ply by the metre. Even if you try hiring one from the prepaid booth, there are hardly any rickshaws,” said Salunke. The GRP, on it’s part, said that it’s the responsibility of the Legal Metrology Department and the traffic police to rein in the rickshaw drivers who don’t ply by the metre.

Leave about Hinjewadi, it's far away from main city.
Just visit PMC (MaNaPa), Shivajinagar, Swarget, Hadapsar and check frequency of buses in main city and how many people uses it.
Also FYI, PMT has increased frequency for few buses to Hinjewadi.
115P Pune Station - Hinjewadi (Every 15 mins)
Pune Corporation - Hinjewadi (Every 10 mins).
Few new routes started for benefit of IT industries.
43A Hinjewadi - Katraj (via Bypass Highway)
103A Hinjewadi - Katraj (via Pashan, Kothrud Depot, Swarget)
208 Hinjewadi - Hadapsar (via Pune Station)

My friend Hinjwadi is indias one the biggest IT SEZ. More than 1 lakh IT people working there. Main city means not that 15-20 km surrounding area Many cities are now 60-70 km in india.
I agree on inside that city area buses. But they not more than 20-25 km one route.
Please visit Hyderabad, Chennai where you can find buses from one end to other. The percentage buses is much lesser in Pune.
me one bus from Kothrud or Hadpasar or Magarpatta to Hinjwadi or Dange chowk ? Every one or 2 buses are there also wont follow timings.
Mostly people prefers cabs /Autos or their own transpiration in Pune compare to other big cities is what my point.

I think that the discussion regarding Bus service 'only' from 'Railway Station' would be better here on IRI.

This has nothing to do with railways discussion. Since you are asking buses to Hinjawadi, here is the list. The frequency mentioned is average frequency. If you collect frequencies across multiple routes, you will see that the cumulative frequency is quite good for certain areas.
The below list is to prove that service is there, but passengers are not interested to find out. They are always under the impression that frequency is less, service is not good and they will maintain this for years. If you explore, you will realize that service
is actually very good. Same is scenario for Pune Station as well.
Airport Pune Airport to Hinjawadi (via Pune Station) - freq 60/90 min
43A Katraj to Hinjawadi (via Highway) - freq 1 hr
99 Swargate to Hinjawadi (via Karvenagar) - less frequent
100 PMC to Hinjawadi (via Vishalnagar) - freq 20 min
103A Katraj to Hinjawadi (via Kothrud Depot, Pashan) - freq 20 min
115P Pune Station to Hinjawadi (via Dange Chowk) - freq 20 min
208 Hadapsar to Hinjawadi (via Baner) - freq 20 min
306 Dange Chowk to Hinjawadi - freq 10 min
313 Chnichvad Gaon to Marunji - less frequent
313A Chnichvad Gaon to Chandkhed - less frequent
316 Chinchvad Gaon to Hinjawadi - less frequent
321 Sangavi to Hinjawadi (via Pimpale Saudagar) - less frequent
321A Pimple Gurav to Hinjawadi (via Pimpale Saudagar) - less frequent
324 Bhosari to Hinjawadi (via Pimple Saudagar) - freq 15 min
Vajra 6 Bhosari to Hinjawadi (via Pimple Saudagar) - freq 30 min
327 Alandi to Hinjawadi - less frequent
333 Pune Station to Hinjawadi (via Vishalnagar) - freq 30 min
372 Nigadi to Hinjawadi - freq 5-10 min

Travelled in this train from HWH-YPR for the first time. Few observations.
• Train left bang on time from HWH. Immediately after 10 minutes came the bed roll attendant exchanging pleasantries, asking where I was going etc etc. Lot of sweet talk for obvious reasons which I came to know when the trip neared its end.
• There is no pantry car so it does become difficult if you want to buy something. One is at the mercy of vendors who charge more than the prescribed rates. A very small qty of tea & coffee
is sold at Rs 10, bottled water @ Rs 20/,Veg dinner costs Rs 120/.
• Train was delayed due to a signaling system failure at Barang near Bhubaneshwar resulting in a delayed dinner being supplied at 11pm @ BBS !!! People who had placed orders had to be woken up.
• Non stop run between BZA & Renigunta does have its challenges if people want to buy something and nothing is available.
• From Renigunta ,train takes the Renigunta, Puttur, Tiruttani, Arakkonam Byepass, Melpakkam, Walajah Road, Mukundarayapuram , Katpadi route. The intermediate station updated in this site is incorrect and needs to be updated
• Towards the end of the journey comes the ‘TIP’ taking ritual…first comes the bed roll attendant followed by the OBHS staff. This is a menace which railways needs to seriously put an end to.
• Even with LHB coaches, the side berths in 2AC are very narrow, with no charging points. Always good to prefer the bigger berths
Train reached YPR at 10pm, delayed by 6 hours. Probably due to the less slack time, the train was hardly able to makes up for time lost even though it had non-stop run at many places.

Departed from HWH on 10-Oct, reached YPR on 11-Oct. There was a signalling failure near BBS. What was extremely surprising ws that lots of trains were held up between Cuttack & Khurda road and there was hardly any update from the Ecor on twitter/FB or anywhere else. Usually nowadays , I have seen if there are any disruptions, the respective division/zone does provide some update to keep passengers aware, but it was missing here

Surat has airport , where is demand is there they have flights.
Vadidara is just 1 hr45 to 2 hrs for ADI , People use Ahemdabad easily. These 2 cities not effected by this pricing concept as they have any premium train with originating point.
Flights effects route which have premier trains with full quota.

You are asking about CTC and KUR ?? CTC is a major railway station of ECoR and Odisha..it's a major city of Odisha...and KUR is also a major junction....
We won't hv any prblm if OGL halt is introduced.. we ppl of Odisha hv nothing to do with it but don't raise any question about stoppage of Coro at CTC and KUR..
Ppl of Odisha and mainly from important cities like BBS, CTC, BLS, BAM are more dependent on Coro and HWH-MAS mail than any other south bound trains for travelling to
Chennai as it's one of the the most important and oldest trains...likewise we prefer Falaknuma for going to Hyderabad (SC).

Oct 10 2016 (17:16)   Railways to introduce first glass top coaches in Kashmir Valley

Jayashree ❖ Amita*^   35856 news posts
Entry# 2018715   News Entry# 282714         Tags   Past Edits
NEW DELHI:  In an attempt to attract upscale tourists, the Indian Railways will come up with glass top coaches, which will be introduced on regular trains in Kashmir Valley and Araku Valley in Tamil Nadu.
These coaches have been jointly designed by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), Research, Designs and Standards Organisation (RDSO), and Integral Coach Factory (ICF), Perambur (Chennai) and would be introduced in December.
“Three such coaches will roll out from ICF, Perambur in December this year. The first coach will be tagged in a regular train in
the Kashmir Valley while the other two will be part of some train careening through the picturesque Araku Valley (K K Line, Waltair station) on the South-Eastern Railway,” Chairman and Managing Director of IRCTC A K Manocha said today.
The trains having such luxurious coaches giving an aerial view would be decided later, he added. These coaches, the first of its kind in India, were being manufactured at the ICF, Perambur and each coach would be built at a cost of around Rs four crore.
“The basic objective behind such a project is to promote tourism and woo upscale tourists from both India and abroad. There are some trains with glass ceiling in foreign countries, like Switzerland, which enjoy the patronage of tourists. We believe such coaches would also give a fillip to rail tourism in India,” Mr Manocha said.
Giving details of the project, Group General Manager (Infrastructure) IRCTC, Dham Ghaj Prasad, said the coaches with glass top ceiling would be the first of its type in India and would rival the best anywhere in the world.
“Work on the project started in 2015 with a series of meetings on the specification of the coach design. The first such coach is all set to roll out this month (October) itself. The coaches will be ultra luxurious with rotatable chairs to provide the passengers an aerial view through partly glass ceiling,” he said.
Further, the coaches would have ample leg space and also equipped with modern infotainment system for the benefit of tourists, he added.
