Apr 23 2016 (12:34)   Konkan Railway to follow monsoon timetable from June 10

KR runs through a geologically sensitive zone and heavy monsoon rains often cause landslides.
Konkan Railway on Friday announced that it would be following its annual monsoon time-table from June 10 to June 31. KR in a statement said that passengers who have been issued journey tickets prior to the announcement of the Monsoon Time Table should check the timings of their train well in advance.
The monsoon time-table is a mechanism to ensure that trains start their journey earlier or in some cases later in order to compensate for the reduced speeds.
Since KR runs through a geologically sensitive zone, heavy monsoon rains often cause landslides. Reduced train speeds is one of the ways to ensure a train is safe in case it is faced with an emergency situation arising out of inclement weather.

नई दिल्ली। इंडिया की लाइफ लाइन कही जाने वाली भारतीय रेलवे में 1 अप्रैल से चार मुख्य बदलाव होने जा रहे हैं जिन्हें जानना आपके लिए बहुत जरूरी है। जानिए रेल मंत्री सुरेश प्रभु से जुड़ी हुई 10 खास बातें
1. सीनियर सिटीजन और प्रेंग्नेंट महिलाओं का कोटा: सीनियर सिटीजन और गर्भवती महिलाओं के लिए ट्रेन में आरक्षण कोटा बढ़ा दिया गया है जो कि 1 अप्रैल से लागू हो जायेगा। सीनियर सिटीजन को अब ट्रेन में 80 से 90 सीटें रिजर्व रहेंगी तो वहीं गर्भवती महिलाओं में 6 लोअर बर्थ मिलेगीं स्लीपर में जबकि एसी2 और एसी 3 में तीन लोअर बर्थ मिलेगी। 2. हाफ टिकट पर नो सीट: अभी तक 5 से 12 साल तक के बच्चों के लिए
हाफ टिकट कटवाने पर भी अलग सीट मिला करती थी लेकिन अब से ऐसा नहीं हो पायेगा। 3. 139 पर कॉल करें: अब टिकट कैंसिल कराने के लिए आपको परेशान नहीं होना होगा क्योंकि अब आप 139 पर कॉल कर अपनी टिकट कैंसिल करवा सकेंगे। 4. 3 नहीं 4 महीने पहले खुलेगी टिकट-विंडों: अब आपको टिकट के लिए चार महीने पहले ही अप्लाई करना होगा क्योंकि अब 3 नहीं 4 महीने पहले टिकट-विंडों खुलेगी।

मुंबई : मागील वर्षी रेल्वेच्या दुर्लक्षित कारभारामुळे एसी डबल डेकरला प्रवाशांनी प्रतिसाद न दिल्याने, उशिरा शहाणपण सूचलेल्या रेल्वेने यावेळी डबल डेकर नियमित सुरू केली. त्याचा रेल्वेला चांगलाच फायदा झाला असून, पहिल्याच दिवशी ५२ टक्के प्रतिसाद प्रवाशांकडून मिळाल्याची माहिती मध्य रेल्वेकडून देण्यात आली.
एलटीटी ते मडगाव अशी एसी डबल डेकर ट्रेन मागील वर्षी गणेशोत्सवकाळात सुरू केली. मात्र, प्रीमियम म्हणून सुरू केलेल्या या ट्रेनला अत्यंत अल्प प्रतिसाद मिळाला. अव्वाच्यासवा भाडे वाढत जात असल्याने प्रवाशांनी अक्षरश: पाठच फिरवली. आता पुन्हा एकदा एसी डबल डेकर सुरू करण्याचा निर्णय घेण्यात आला आणि नवीन एसी डबल डेकर ९ डिसेंबरपासून एलटीटी ते मडगाव सुरू करण्यात आली. या पहिल्या दिवशीच ५२ टक्के प्रतिसाद मिळाल्याची माहिती मध्य रेल्वेतील एका अधिकाऱ्याकडून देण्यात आली. जवळपास ८९0 प्रवाशांनी या ट्रेनमधून प्रवास केला.

was a long cherished dream of passengers on Konkan Railway Route to have a Double Decker Train between Mumbai & Madgaon to cater for the extra rush in order to make the journey more comfortable.
Taking into account the need of the passengers as well as the request of Hon’ble Chief Minister of Goa to Shri Suresh Prabhu, Hon’ble Minister for Railways to introduce a Double Decker Train between Mumbai & Madgaon, it has now been decided to run an AC Double Decker Train between Mumbai & Madgaon.
Shri Suresh Prabhu, Hon’ble Minister for Railways will flag off the inaugural run of AC Double Decker Express Train from Madgaon on Sunday, 6th December 2015 at about 15:30 Hrs.
AC Double Decker Express Train No. 11085 will have AC Chair Car Coaches and will leave Lokmanya Tilak Terminus on every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at about 05:30 Hrs and will reach Madgaon at about 17:30 Hrs on the same day.
Similarly in Up Direction, Train No. 11086 will leave Madgaon on every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at about 06:00 Hrs and will reach Lokmanya Tilak Terminus at about 17:10 Hrs on the same day.
This train will halt at Thane, Panvel, Khed, Chiplun, Ratnagiri, Kankavali, Sawantwadi Road, Thivim and Karmali in both the directions.
Konkan Railway always strives to meet with the requirement of Passengers and General Public on its route to the extant possible and hence request our Esteemed Passengers to avail of the services of this train.
