Dec 21 2016 (12:50)   Govt may hike train fares after Budget to check its mounting losses

The government might hike rail passenger fares and freight rates after the budget to stave off mounting losses, a top official said on Tuesday, as finance minister Arun Jaitley said passengers should pay for services they receive.
Speaking weeks before he presents India’s first combined railway and Union budget in February, Jaitley made a strong pitch for the railways to outsource non-core activities such as hospitality.
“Railways got caught in a battle where populism prevailed over performance... the basic principle on which any commercial establishment is to be run is that consumers must
pay for the services they receive,” Jaitley told reporters.
The railway ministry official said the public-sector behemoth suffered an annual loss of Rs 33,000 crore on account of passenger fare subsidy but any hike announcement might come after the budget as it wants to assess budgetary support.
“We want the government to help railways bear the cost of the losses but so far, the finance ministry has refused any assistance,” said an official who did not wish to be quoted.
Read: The new rail fare structure is confusing and will help airlines
The ministry is also likely to move the cabinet soon, seeking approval for setting up a committee to recommend rates of passenger fare and freight.
India’s colonial-era railways carries more than 23 million passengers daily but creaky infrastructure, poor maintenance and shoddy revenue generation has hurt the world’s fourth-largest rail network.
Successive governments have backed away from reforms and especially hiking passenger fares, which is a politically sensitive topic.

As a result, the country’s largest employer runs many trains at rock-bottom fares and struggles to balance its books.
For example, for every Rs 100 spent on a rail passenger, the railways recovers just Rs 57 while the other Rs 43 is government subsidy. The poor financial health has taken a toll on rail infrastructure and accidents are common.
A number of state elections are scheduled for February-March, including the politically crucial Uttar Pradesh and Punjab.
The finance minister said to remain competitive against highways and airlines, railways would have to strengthen its performance and internal management system.
“The core competence of railways is to drive trains. Hospitality may not be the core competence of the railways and what is not within its core competence, the principle of outsourcing -- accepted the world over -- can be a logical addition,” Jaitley said.
He also dismissed Opposition criticism of the government’s recall of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes and said the Reserve Bank of India had enough currency for circulation.
“We were prepared. There has been no day when RBI did not dispense adequate cash to banks. Even today, RBI has more than adequate cash to last not just till December 30 but even beyond it,” Jaitley said.
Millions have lined up outside banks and ATMs since the high-value banknotes were scrapped last month but a cash crunch and frequent rule changes have irked the Opposition.
The finance minister also pitched for a shift to digital transactions, announcing small traders and businesses with a turnover of up to Rs 2 crore would pay less tax if they accept payments through banking and digital platforms. The presumptive tax on digital and cheque payments will be 6% instead of 8%.
Jaitley said the government will continue to incentivise the shift from cash transactions as there had been a 300-400% increase in digital and e-payments.

കണ്ണൂർ ∙ യാത്രക്കാരുടെ ശ്രദ്ധയ്ക്ക്. പണി പൂർത്തിയായെങ്കിലും ദക്ഷിണ റെയിൽവേ ജനറൽ മാനേജരുടെ സന്ദർശനം വൈകുന്നതു മൂലം എസ്കലേറ്ററും വിശ്രമമുറികളും യാത്രക്കാർക്കായി തൽക്കാലം തുറന്നു തരാൻ നിർവാഹമില്ല. തടസ്സമുണ്ടായതിൽ റെയിൽവേ ഖേദിക്കുന്നു. ഓണസമ്മാനമായി പ്രഖ്യാപിച്ച റെയിൽവേ വികസന പ്രവർത്തനങ്ങളാണ് ജനറൽ മാനേജരുടെ വരവ് നീണ്ടുപോയതിനെ തുടർന്നു യാത്രക്കാർക്കു നിഷേധിക്കുന്നത്.
ഓരോ ദിവസവും റെയിൽവേ സ്റ്റേഷനിലെ തിരക്ക് അനിയന്ത്രിതമായിക്കൊണ്ടിരിക്കുകയാണെങ്കിലും‍ ജിഎം വന്നാലേ എസ്കലേറ്ററും വിശ്രമമുറിയും തുറന്നുകൊടുക്കൂ എന്ന പിടിവാശിയിലാണ് റെയിൽവേ. ഈ മാസം 15നു നടത്താനിരുന്ന സന്ദർശനം അടുത്തമാസത്തേക്കു മാറ്റിയതോടെയാണ് പ്രവൃത്തി പൂർത്തിയായിട്ടും ഉദ്ഘാടകനെ കാത്തു മാത്രമിരിക്കുന്നത്. എസ്കലേറ്ററിനു പുറമേ എട്ടു വിശ്രമമുറികളും ജിഎമ്മിനെ കാത്തിരിക്കുകയാണ്.
ഓരോ ദിവസവും 750 രൂപ വരുമാനമുള്ള ഏഴു വിശ്രമമുറികളും ഒരു ഡോർമറ്ററിയും അനാവശ്യമായി അടച്ചിട്ടിരിക്കുന്നതിനെതിരെ വ്യാപക വിമർശനമുണ്ട്. വരുമാനത്തിന്റെ കാര്യത്തിൽ എ ഗ്രേഡ് സ്റ്റേഷനിൽനിന്ന് എ വൺ ഗ്രേഡിലേക്ക് ഉയരാനുള്ള ശ്രമത്തിലാണ് റെയിൽവേ. എ

This is the waste of public money and property. Waiting for officials and higher ups. Better to wait for RM or PM or even president to come and inaugrate it for us. Till that time let passengers suffer as they are doing now. If officials have seriously seen the plight of passengers they will never have opted for such kind of attitude to delay the inaugration.

If RM can inaugurate through video conference, why cant these officials follow that. After all if they come to station what is the benefit for the station? It was scheduled last time BJP meet was at Kozhikode. But it was postponed due to some reason. RM inaugurated other station facilities and went.

Sep 26 2016 (11:25)   Split Bengaluru-Karwar/Kannur Express, forum urges Rly. Minister - KARNATAKA - The Hindu

Split Bengaluru-Karwar/Kannur Express, forum urges Rly. Minister
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu is expected to visit Bantwal and Puttur Railway Stations on Oct. 1
The renovated Kabaka-Puttur Railway Station building. × Anticipating Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu’s visit to Kabaka-Puttur Railway Station on October 1, the Kukke Shree Subrahmanya-Mangalore Railway Commuters Forum, Puttur, has planned to submit a fresh list of demands from the region, including splitting the Bengaluru-Karwar/Kannur night express in to two full-fledged trains.
Prabhu is expected to attend a mega de-addiction programme at Dharmasthala on October 1, after which he is expected to visit Bantwal and Puttur Railway Stations coming under Mysuru Division of South Western Railway.
Atul Gupta, Divisional Railway Manager, Mysuru, told The Hindu, the Minister’s visit is yet to be confirmed officially. Personnel were refurbishing the station and other railway premises at Kabaka-Puttur in anticipation of Minister’s visit, he added.
Demands to continue
Forum Convenor Sudarshan told The Hindu that they have been submitting periodical representations to successive Railway Ministers detailing the demands from the region, which will also benefit other areas.
The demand for carving out a separate Mangaluru Division from Railway networks of Southern Railway till Kasargod, Konkan Railway till Karwar and SWR till Hassan will continue to be made till they are met, he said. Alternatively, Mangaluru Railway region should be brought under Konkan Railway, he added.
The pressing demand, however, is bifurcating the Bengaluru-Karwar/Kannur night express train as not all passengers between Bengaluru-Mangaluru-Bengaluru are getting accommodation on the single train. Therefore, both trains should have separate rakes of 24 coaches each; while Bengaluru-Karwar train should be routed via Arsikere/ Shravanabelagola, the Kannur train should be routed via Mysuru.
The journey timing should also be brought down at least by two hours, Mr. Sudarshan said.
New train to Delhi
Demanding upgrading Subrahmanya Road Station as a terminal station, the forum has urged the Ministry to commence a new train to New Delhi on the Konkan Route.
The tri-weekly day train between Karwar-Yeshwanthpur should be converted as Kudla Express between Mangaluru and Bengaluru and be run via Shravanabelagola to benefit passengers.
‘Reintroduce train’
The forum also demanded the re-introduction of Mahalakshmi Express between Mangaluru-Miraj via Arsikere or Madgaon that was cancelled before the gauge conversion.
To facilitate pilgrims visiting Kukke Subrahmanya, more trains should be extended to Subrahmanya Road station, including Mangaluru-Madgaon Intercity Express; Mumbai CST-Mangaluru Junction Express; Mangaluru-Thiruvananthapuram Maveli Express; Howrah-Vasco-da-Gama Amaravathi Express and Patna-Vasco-da-Gama Express, the forum suggested.

Dont worry nothing will be done. SWR has one common reason HMRDA agreement. Even the train which has already been announced has not run since years. Leave aside new trains. All these are just gimmicks played by politicians nothing will materialize. There was high demand of additional train when shiradi ghats were closed, and even high court of karnataka intervened, but nothing happened
