Dec 27 2016 (08:39)   Railways Asks WB Govt to Take Charge of All Ongoing & New Projects

Kolkata: The Railways has sent a letter to the West Bengal government stating that from now on the state has to take responsibilities for all ongoing and upcoming projects of the suburban system as well as Metro Railway.
According to a highly-placed source at the state secretariat Nabanna, the letter addressed to the Chief Secretary, the Transport Secretary and the Urban Development Secretary, was sent last week from the Railways Works Planning Directorate.
It stated that the Railways, in the last few years had incurred losses of around to Rs 15,000 crore due
to delay in projects including Metro Rail projects, which were either delayed or stalled because of various hindrances.
In the letter, the Railways has asked the state government to take responsibilities about removal and rehabilitation of encroaches on its land, feasibility study of any proposed project and so on, the officer said.
It has also proposed the state can utilise funds meant for urban transport projects or can levy different forms of taxes and development fees to releasing project costs, he said.
Incidentally, a couple of months back the Centre had verbally given similar proposals to the state government, which the latter had dismissed, the officer added.

It is a right step, and should have been taken much earlier.
Just like other metro cities, WB Govt too take charge of/ financially participate in the Metro and suburban train operation. State Govt is major beneficiary of the economic activities discharged by the Kolkata Metro suburban commuters and the tax/duties paid by them/ their business/ their employers. Hence state govt must come forward to share its responsibility instead of asking funds from centre to subsidise it.
Why should poor passengers/citizens of other poorer states bear the brunt of this subsidy
given to relatively richer Kolkata populace?
Kolkata Metro is the only metro train running on heavy subsidy born by IR, rest are all joint ventures of State Govt/IR/PPP ventures.
Declaration of Kolkata as 17th zone of IR is height of political expediency which bleed IR to the tune of INR 1000 crores every year & injustice to rest of the states of India.

Dec 27 2016 (09:51)   200 more railway stations to have Wi-Fi in 2017: Prabhu

Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 26 () As part of its programme to upgrade facilities for rail users, Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu said here today that 200 more stations and some additional trains would be provided with Wi-Fi in 2017.
Dedicating six Wi-Fi facilities to rail users at Kannur, Ernakulam and Kollam at a function here, he said 100 stations had been fitted with Wi-Fi this year and the target was to double this number in 2017.
"More trains will also would be provided with Wi-Fi next year," he said.
objective is to have Wi-Fi facility in all railway stations in small cities and towns," he said.
The Minister said steps were also on to construct escalators in stations, he said.
Welcoming the Kerala government's decision to sign a Joint Venture with Railways for development projects in the state, he said that as partners, the railways would be developed in the state.
"The Centre and state will have equity in the venture and funds for the projects will be raised through market borrowings with the consent of the state government," he said.
The resources spent under the JV would be in addition to funds earmarked in the Railway budget, he added.
Stating that investment in railway infrastructure can bring development to its optimum level in Kerala, Prabhu said he had asked some banks to prepare a business plan for the state.
Prabhu admitted that there was a lack of railway investment in Kerala and said the NDA government's move was to reverse that trend.
Referring to remittances to the state from Non-Resident Keralites, he said even they could invest in railway projects.
"They can develop a railway station", he said, adding that the key objective was to join hands for development.
The Railways was also looking out for resources other than its normal revenue.
They were also looking into the possibility of coverting its hospitals as medical college hospitals, he said.
Chief Minister Pinrayi Vijayan and G Sudhakaran, PWD Minister and in charge of Railways were among those present.

Dec 26 2016 (08:52)   Locals, experts protest as Mumbai devpt body eyes development of 1,070 sq km on Mumbai outskirts

RAVI PRAJAPATI*^~   934 news posts

MUMBAI: In sleepy hamlets, fishing villages and traditional gaothans in Bhayander and Vasai-Virar on the outskirts of Mumbai, a wave of resentment is spreading among local residents.
The trigger for the resentment is the draft regional plan issued by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), which envisages urbanisation in no-development zones, hazardous industries in green zone belts and multi-storey buildings around traditional gaothan villages. The total investment is a whopping Rs 1.14 lakh crore for road, rail and infrastructure projects over the next two decades.
With barely three weeks remaining for submitting
their objections and suggestions to the authority, locals said the draft plan will have “serious’’ repercussions on their region, which provides flowers, fruits and vegetables to Mumbai.
The MMR region extends over an area of 4,311 sq km and covers entire Mumbai and parts of Thane, Palghar and Raigad districts. Areas include Vasai-Virar, Karjat, Khopoli, Ulhasnagar, Kulgaon-Badlapur, Uran and Navi Mumbai, with a population of around 22 million.
The draft plan (2016-2036) was published by MMRDA last September, but most residents remained clueless about it until now.
Since last month, over a dozen protest rallies have been held organized by local civic groups. Last week, around 3,000 residents gathered for a meeting held in the vast complex of a 400-year-old Portuguese church in Uttan, Bhayander.
Samir Vartak, a former zilla parishad member, said 13,000 objection forms were distributed to villagers in the last one month. “The locals are still not aware about the proposed development,’’ he said.
Tony Dabre, ex-sarpanch of Vagholi village, said, “People are angry. The government is trying to impose a plan the locals don’t want.’’ Environmental activist from Vasai, Father Francis D’Britto recently formed an environment protection committee to counter the new plan.
According to the draft plan, industrial development will be allowed on land parcels of 10 hectares (25 acres) or above in green zone I. Moreover, buildings 15 metres tall (about three to four floors) will be allowed in such zones.
A buffer zone of just 30 metres has been proposed from the edge of forest zones and water bodies.
Buildings with “low heights’’ will be permitted in the Matheran foothills area, which has been earmarked as an “institutional zone’’.
“The Matheran hills are encircled with the proposed multi-modal corridor connecting Virar to Alibag and the Central Railway line. In order to maintain a buffer between the hills and the encircling transport network, institutional zone is proposed with low-rise development and large-scale developments which will not require further road networks,’’ said the report.
In gaothans which have bungalows and one-storeyed houses in narrow lanes, the MMRDA has proposed a height of 24m (about seven floors) as part of its Gaothan Expansion Scheme. Such structures will be permitted 200m from the boundary of the gaothans. Four growth centres have been identified across the region to create employment opportunities in the tertiary sector. These are pockets of 5 to 13 sq km each in Vasai, Bhiwandi, Kalyan and Panvel tehsils.
In all, the new plan has earmarked an area of 1070.08 sq km as “urbanisable zone’’.
“To attract industrial development, industries are proposed to be freely permitted in the Urbanisable Zone and Green Zone. Seven pockets of land are identified in Virar, Bhiwandi, Taloja, Khalapur, on both sides of Amba River, and Khopta for industrial development. These pockets total an area of 78.06 sq km,’’ said the draft report.

Looks like an environmentally sensitive issue.
It is seen that the authorities many times turn blind eye to the environmental degradation due to a developmental projects like new factory/residential/commercial/road/railwayline.
On the other hand there are many organisations (often with vsted interests) alway oppose any development tooth and nail and at the same time want aid/help from govt.
Country needs development
for the well being & prosperity of citizens. A Right balance have to be struck so that the development happens either without any environment damage or with a provision to nullify the suspected environmental degradation through mitigative measures like growing trees in lieu of uprooted ones.
