Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu is known to be very active on social media, responding to the tweets of railway users, engaging with them frequently to make the common man feel connected and involved in the development of Indian Railways.
According to the Delhi confidential report in Indian Express, Prabhu’s uncharacteristic silence after the recently announced flexi-pricing structure for Rajdhani, Duronto and Shatabdi trains, sparked speculation that the minister is avoiding a backlash
on the social networking website.
The report, however, clarifies that once the Railway Minister cancelled his public engagements, it came to light that he is unwell and has been resting at home. Interestingly, while Prabhu himself has been silent on the surge pricing, the Railway Ministry has been aggressively tweeting out charts and images to dispel myths about the system. Railways has sent out a series of tweets, clarifying that the move will not affect the common man.
“142 trains out of about 12500 total trains (1.1% only) and 3200 Mall Express trains (4.4% only) run by Indian Railways will be chosen for this experiment. This will affect less than 0.15 million high end passengers out of total 23 million passengers carried by Indian Railways daily. Lower-end passengers are not affected by this experiment,” Railways has said.
Talking about the loss that it is occurring, Railways has said, “While the cost per passenger kilometre on Indian Railways was 73 paise, Indian Railways recovered only 37 paise. As a result of subsidisation of passenger services, Indian Railways bore a loss of Rs 33,490 on coaching services. According to the new “flexi fare system”, the base fare will rise 10% with every 10% of berths, sold subject to a ceiling.

रेलवे ने तत्काल टिकट में बढोत्तरी कर दी है. 24 दिसंबर से बढ़ी हुई कीमतें लागू होगी. रेलवे ने अलग अलग क्लास में लगभग 10 से लेकर 30 प्रतिशत की बढोत्तरी की है. रेलवे से मिली जानकारी के अनुसार द्वितीय श्रेणी में न्यूनतम और सबसे ज्यादा तत्काल शुल्क 10 और 15 रुपये ही बना रहेगा.स्लीपर श्रेणी में न्यूनतम अधिकतम तत्काल प्रभार 90 एवं 175 रुपये की बजाय 100 और 200 रुपये तथा वातानुकूलित कुर्सीयान में 100 एवं रुपये की बजाय 125 और 225 रुपये किया गया है. वातानुकूलित 3 टियर में न्यूनतम एवं अधिकतम तत्काल प्रभार 250 और 350 रुपये की बजाय 300 और 400 रुपये, वातानुकूलित 2 टियर एवं एक्जीक्यूटिव श्रेणियों में यह राशि 300 और 400 रुपये की बजाय 400 और 500 रुपये कर दिया गया है.

कम दूरी के सफर में स्लीपर श्रेणी के लिए 500 किलोमीटर,एसी चेयरकार के लिए 250 किलोमीटर, एसी 3 टियर एवं एसी 2 टियर के लिए 500 किलोमीटर तथा एक्जीक्यूटिव श्रेणी के लिए 250 किलोमीटर है. इससे पहले यह शुल्क न्यूनतम 300 रुपए और अधिकतम 400 रुपए था .

जहां पहले एक्टिक्युटिव क्लास के लिए न्यूनतम तत्काल शुल्क 300 रुपए और अधिकतम तत्काल शुल्क 400 रुपए था, अब उसे बढ़ाकर न्यूनतम 400 रुपए और अधिकतम 500 रुपए कर दिया गया है. बढ़ी हुई कीमतों से आम लोगों के लिए एक बार फिर परेशानी खड़ी हो गयी है. तत्काल टिकट के लिए यात्री पहले ही परेशान है ऐसे में बढ़ी हुई कीमतों का असर भी पड़ेगा

It is very unfortunate to cancel the Sambalpur Yesvantpur train.It is a very popular train for the people of western Odisha particularly. Operation reasons should be rectified and should run the train regularly as a permanent basis.

The East Coast Railways has not yet renewed the weekly special train 08301&08302 ,Sambalpur to Yeshwantpur beyond 25th of Nov.,that means they are cancelling the train. Many passengers of Western Oddisha particularly are benefited by this train. So people of western odisha are demanding the train not as a special but as a regular train. So ECR should think once again and at least run as a special train.

Railway ki loot ki naya andaj phir aya. ek common citizen kaise 120 din pahele ticket lega, ishike liye majburi me pahelese ticket lena padata he. uska punishment ab dena padega.Railway is telling by this way they will control the touts, but instead of controlling them they are penalising the common man. particularly in festival,holidays time they are giving special trains in name of SUVDHA train by increasing fare in to two three fold and they are behaving like a tout. We must protest these type of things.

स्पेशल ट्रेनों में वसूल रहा ‘तत्काल’ श्रेणी का किराया
रेलवे ने चुपके से यात्रियों पर एक और बोझ लाद दिया है। नई व्यवस्था के तहत अब स्पेशल ट्रेनों में यात्रियों को सफर महंगा पड़ेगा। क्योंकि स्पेशल ट्रेनों की सभी श्रेणियों में रेलवे ने यात्रियों से ‘तत्काल’ श्रेणी का किराया वसूलना शुरू कर दिया है।
शुरूआत इलाहाबाद से जम्मूतवी जाने वाली जम्मू स्पेशल से हुई है। इस ट्रेन की सभी श्रेणियों में रेलवे ‘तत्काल’ का किराया वसूल रहा है। अभी आगे चलने वाली अन्य स्पेशल ट्रेनों में भी रेलवे इसी तर्ज पर किराया वसूलेगा।

फेस्टिवल सीजन में रेलवे की ओर से हर साल स्पेशल ट्रेनें चलाई जाती हैं लेकिन उन ट्रेनों में यात्रियों से अन्य ट्रेनों वाला ही किराया लिया जाता है। इस बार रेलवे ने यह व्यवस्था चुपके से बदल दी है। खुद रेल कर्मियों को भी इसकी जानकारी नहीं थी।
इसी वजह से 13 अक्तूबर को इलाहाबाद से जम्मू जाने वाली गाड़ी संख्या 04113 स्पेशल के सभी यात्रियों के टिकट रेलवे ने निरस्त कर दिए और इसके स्थान पर एक दूसरी ट्रेन 04117 चलाने की घोषणा कर दी गई।

Oct 31 2015 (13:47)   Railways erects 50-km barbed wire fencing to secure tracks for Gatimaan Express

Jayashree ❖ Amita*^   35841 news posts

Agra: In its bid to ensure safety and punctuality of the country's first semi-high speed train Gatimaan Express, Indian Railways has erected about 50km of barbed wire fences and walls at vulnerable zones of the high-speed corridor. The barriers have been installed to stave off stray animals from crossing the track.
North Central Railway spokesperson Bijay Kumar said, "The stretch between Palwal Station (outer) and Agra Cantonment Station, a 138km-long route, has been cordoned off at various points."
In March, Railway Board president A K Mittal had said the launch of the train
was being delayed because barriers were yet to be put up along the route. The barricading of the Gatimaan route will ensure that animals don't get overrun and there is no disruption in train services.
NCR general manager Arun Saxena on Wednesday announced that Gatimaan Express will start operating between New Delhi- Agra cantt stations by the end of this financial year, i.e. March 2016. His announcement came after the commissioner of railway safety (CSR) of North Eastern Railways gave his approval to start the train on October 27.
However, the CSR of Northern Railways is yet to give its approval.
The train will cover its journey from Agra at 5.30 pm and reach Delhi at 7.15 pm. On the opposite side, it will start from Delhi at 8 am and reach Agra by 9.45 am. The running schedule of the train as well as the fares have already been decided by the railway authorities.
According to railway, one side fare of air-conditioned chair car between the two destinations has been fixed at Rs 690, while a passenger will be required to spend Rs 1,365 for the executive class.
For Shatabadi, a passenger is required to Rs 540 for chair car, and Rs 1,040 for executive class.

Oct 27 2015 (08:13)   Twin arrests in train ticket racket

Rail Fanning~   137 news posts
Entry# 1629828   News Entry# 246062         Tags   Past Edits
A railway reservation scam was unearthed in Bokaro on Monday after the owner and an employee of a private travel agency were caught red-handed booking tickets with fake IDs within the prohibited time window and selling them at a premium.
Rahul Kumar, proprietor of Rahul Tour & Travels, and a member of his staff, S.K. Singh, are being interrogated by RPF amid speculations that the agency couldn't have pulled off the money-spinning fraud for months without help from railway employees.
The duo are also expected to spill the beans on other employees of
the agency who managed to escape when a 10-member RPF team, led by inspector Amitabh Anand Vardhan, raided their nondescript office near Ram Mandir in Sector I of the steel city.
The crackdown team seized prints of tickets booked online using forged IDs, besides other incriminating documents. It is not immediately clear if there was a cash haul too.
Monday's breakthrough was preceded by an anonymous tip-off to RPF that Rahul Tour & Travels was selling tatkal train tickets on the black market during Durga Puja, when there is unprecedented rush that calls for reservations well in advance.
The agency was said to be selling tickets till Chhath for extra charges. While sleeper class travel was being made available for an additional Rs 500 over the usual fare, the agency was demanding Rs 1,000 more for AC-III berths.
The trains on its demand list were Rajdhani Express, Puroshottam Express and Nilanchal Express to New Delhi, Alleppey Express to south India and Maurya Express to north Bihar among others.
To bust the racket, RPF inspector Vardhan reached the agency's office in plain clothes, posing as a prospective client, on Sunday evening. He asked if he could get a ticket to Delhi within 24 hours and stressed that money was no constraint. The agency staff promised to get his work done by 11am on Monday.
At 11.15am, when Vardhan came to collect his ticket, he was surprised to see employees making several reservations in the time window when agents are barred from doing so.
Under current railway rules, the tatkal window for the common man opens at 10am on the previous day of journey from the train originating station for AC classes and the time is 11am for non-AC classes.
All types of ticketing agents, including IRCTC ones, are debarred from booking tickets for 30 minutes from the opening time, which means from 8am to 8.30am for general classes, from 10am to 10.30am for tatkal AC and from 11am to 11.30am for tatkal non-AC.
However, employees at Rahul Tour & Travels claimed they had "special passwords" to hack into the system and hoard tickets. No sooner had the agency booked the ticket for the RPF inspector, he flashed his ID and called in his team, leading to the double arrest.
"The two persons are being interrogated. This seems like a big scam. How can tickets be booked during prohibited hours without active help from railway insiders?" inspector Vardhan wondered, adding that they would soon reach the root of the racket and more arrests were on the cards.
