It is really so great. Realistic as equals any camera photo. Anyone can shoot a still and post. But this effort is really marvellous.

Pune: The train dacoity near Daund railway station is not the first train dacoity on that route. In fact, the entire section of Pune- Daund- Kurduwadi route has remained vulnerable in terms of train dacoities.
The Pune- Duand- Kurduwadi section has

always remained infamous for train robberies due to the existence of Phase Paradhi community which is known for such crimes. Considering the rising number of train dacoities, the Government Railway Police (GRP) had also sent a proposal to the director general of GRP for two new police stations to tackle train dacoities.
According to the officials of GRP, “The section of Pune-Daund-Kurduwadi is unsafe as often the trains have to take long halts due to the signal as there are no alternate tracks available for trains to pass through the area. The dacoits are well aware of the situation and when train takes halts, these dacoits target the trains.”
According to the GRP officials, the dacoits carry out dacoity particularly on full moon and new moon nights. In recent past, these dacoits had reduced but the dacoity on Sunday night has once again raised questions of passenger security.
Past incidents
On April 11, 2012 seven dacoits had targeted Pune- Patna express near Kedgaon on Pune- Daund route and they had robbed off valuables worth Rs 24,500 from passengers.
On April 25, 2012 another train was targeted in Ahemednagar district when dacoits attacked Pune- Manmad passenger train near Akolner railway station and looted 22 passengers and took away Rs 56,000.

This section is most vulnerable for such practices for a long time and no measures have been taken by IR to address passenger safety and IR property security. There could more such locations where the security threats can be found. Proper action plan, implementation and revival should be conducted to prevent such incidents.

There cannot be different rules for Normal booking and Tatkal booking. SMS is allowed for both. After all this is a step to 'Go Green' and avoid un-necessary paper and printing costs.

These types of vagabonds must, strictly be disallowed / restricted at once once, to enter into the station / board a train
During the recent years the beggars & hijras are moving without any restrain all over in India in all the classes of running trains & platforms using unparliamentarily languages. I am more than sure, within a few years, if not stopped immediately, it will be difficult for gentlemen / ladies to travel by Rail and at that time those unwanted persons will demand compensation from the Rail. These types of vagabonds must, strictly be disallowed / restricted at once, to enter into the station / board a train. - What is your take ? - My friends.

I totally agree with you. But there is a very poor control over these issues. Who can stop all these. I feel every compartment, there should be a TC and a police who should control all these. But very difficult. Does IR have so much resources to prevent such unpleasant elements?

Just the way we have Locals from Pune to Lonavala, we should have locals running between Pune to Daund. This would prevent from passengers from Daund boarding on Express trains bringing inconvenience to passengers in SL classes.

Some of my wishes:
1. 11013 (LTT - CBE Express) should be extended atleast upto PGT as there is only one train (Kanyakumari Express) pasing through Pune going to PGT. And almost all days the train is full and getting reservation is difficult.
New trains to be introduced from Pune or passing Pune:
1. Pune - Mangalore (Daily)
2. Pune - Tanjore
3. Pune - Kolhapur (Superfast /Intercity/ Limited Stops (Satara, Sangli, Miraj)
4. Pune - Mysore (Daily)

Wecome Narayanan,
The official list means....The wish list by a state CM or MP of a region or User organisation submitted to railways. If you see our wish list, most of them submitted by CM of state to railway minister. This topic is just to track what are all wished officially and what we got finally.

Removing all toilets from trains is not a solution to the problem. The outlet of the toilets should not be directed outside. It should be within the train as a small chamber. Chambers should be replacable. This should be periodically replaced. I understand that this is a difficult task and requires both manpower resources, material and maintenance resources. Such a solution can keep the platform and railway lines clean. Take an example of airlines.
