Jun 23 2017 (08:59)   जंक्शन पर अचानक बदल दिया कामायनी का प्लेटफार्म

The Phenomenal One~   700 news posts
Entry# 2330252   News Entry# 306215         Tags   Past Edits
मुंबई से वाराणसी जा रही कामायनी एक्सप्रेस का प्लेटफार्म बृहस्पतिवार को अचानक बदल दिया गया। ऐसे में प्लेटफार्म नंबर सात-आठ पर ट्रेन का इंतजार कर रहे यात्री सकते में आ गए। सूचना मिलते ही सभी प्लेटफार्म नंबर छह की तरफ भागने लगे। आननफानन में कुछ यात्री रेलवे ट्रैक पर उतर गए और जान जोखिम में डालकर प्लेटफार्म छह पर पहुंचे। रेलवे के इस फैसले से यात्रियों में खासी नाराजगी रही।
बीते कुछ रोज से जंक्शन पर मुुंबई रूट की तमाम ट्रेनें जो प्लेटफार्म नंबर सात, आठ, नौ या दस पर आती हैं, उनके प्लेटफार्म अचानक बदल दिए जा रहे हैं। रविवार 18 जून को जंक्शन पर गाड़ी संख्या 18610 गरीब नवाज का प्लेटफार्म बदल दिया गया था। वहीं अब बृहस्पतिवार को गाड़ी

संख्या 11071 कामायनी एक्सप्रेस का प्लेटफार्म अचानक बदला गया। गनीमत रही कि आज ट्रेन आने के 15 मिनट पहले रेलवे ने एनांउसमेंट करवा दी। हालांकि, जिस वक्त कामायनी का प्लेटफार्म बदले जाने की उद्घोषणा हुई थी उस वक्त प्लेटफार्म खाली था। एनाउंसमेंट होने के बाद सात नंबर पर एक पैसेंजर ट्रेन आई, जबकि प्लेटफार्म नंबर आठ खाली था। ऐसे में जब आठ नंबर प्लेटफार्म खाली था तो रेलवे ने कामायनी एक्सप्रेस नंबर छह पर क्यों ली इसे लेकर तमाम तरह की चर्चा हैं।
सूत्र बताते हैं कि अचानक प्लेटफार्म बदले जाने में रेलवे के अवैध वेंडरों की भूमिका रहती है। दरअसल प्लेटफार्म नंबर छह पर दिल्ली-हावड़ा रूट की ट्रेनों की आवाजाही होती है। अगर प्लेटफार्म नंबर छह खाली नहीं है तो वहां आने वाली ट्रेनें आउटर पर रोक ली जाती हैं। ऐसे में अवैध वेंडर आउटर पर ही खाने पीने की सामग्री बेचकर अपनी कमाई कर लेते हैं। इसके पूर्व सुबह दुर्ग-नवतनवा का भी प्लेटफार्म बदला गया था और उसे भी प्लेटफार्म नंबर छह पर लिया गया था।
रेलवे सुरक्षा बल (आरपीएफ) ने बृहस्पतिवार को गोदान एक्सप्रेस से आठ सपेरे पकड़े। आरोप है कि सपेरे ट्रेन मेें सांपों को दिखाकर यात्रियों से जबरन पैसे मांग रहे थे। ट्रेन में गश्त के दौरान आरपीएफ ने आनंद, गुड्डू, अरविंद, जूगनू, आनंद कुमार, मिलन नाथ, आशीष, गोलू को गिरफ्तार कर लिया। आठों को रेलवे मजिस्ट्रेट के सामने पेश किया गया। आरपीएफ प्रभारी पीके राणा के मुताबिक बृहस्पतिवार को जंक्शन के सिटी साइड में अवैध रूप से वाहन खड़ा करने वाले लोगों के खिलाफ भी अभियान चलाया गया। इस दौरान तीन वाहन चालकों के खिलाफ कार्रवाई की गई।

To enhance passenger experience, Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu has launched a mega project to overhaul nearly 40,000 old coaches. Under its "Mission Retro-Fitment" project, the Indian Railways will equip the coaches with better interiors, safety features and amenities including LED lights, anti-graffiti paint coats, branded fittings, powered Venetian blinds and smoke alarm systems. Besides new safety features, "Mission Retrofitment is an endeavour to provide better travel experience as the interiors of the coaches would be refurbished," the minister said.
1) Indian Railways plans to induct about 40,000 coaches with upgraded interiors by 2022-23, the transporter in a press release.
2)

The programme includes refurbishing of coaches which includes upgradation with improved interiors. The approximate cost for this task is estimated at Rs. 30 lakh per coach.
3) The railways said 57 coaches have already been refurbished by Coach Rehabilitation Workshop, Bhopal and the refurbished coaches are running in Varanasi-New Delhi Mahamana Express since 22 January, 2016.
4) Besides fitment of panels without visible screws, LED lights, modular toilets with concealed plumbing, branded fittings, powered Venetian blinds and anti-graffiti coating, the refurbishing task would include enhanced safety features such as fire and smoke detection system (in newly manufactured AC coaches), double acting compartment doors (in AC coaches) and rounded edges at most locations for injury-free.
5) The refurbished coaches will also have bio toilets, passenger address/information systems, braille signage, ergonomic design and an increased number of mobile and laptop charging points, the railways said.
6) The Indian Railways plans to use better materials for the task, such as polycarbonate ABS, advanced composites, glass fibre reinforced plastic and stainless steel, among other features.
7) Indian Railways envisions improved passenger experience with its overhauling project.
8) "By 2020, Indian Railways would provide a new travel experience to the passenger over Indian Railways. This mission is challenging as it will be carried out without affecting the traffic operation," Mr Prabhu added.
9) In addition, for retro-fitment of Centre Buffer Coupler (CBC) with balanced draft gear, the transporter has estimated an approximate cost of Rs. 28 lakh per coach.
10) This task includes stripping of the lavatories and doorway area, gas cutting the end wall stanchions, headstock assembly and trough floor, fabrication of the head stock compatible with CBC, tack welding of the new head stock with the stanchions pillars and sole bar, inspection of the critical weld joints, painting with high performance anti-corrosive epoxy coating, replacement of sole bars as well as cleaning and painting.

Jun 19 2017 (14:33)   From Rajdhani Express, Garib Rath to other superfasts, 60% of all east-bound trains ran late in May

Train commuters from north travelling to the eastern region of the country were the ones who are said to be most affected by train delays in the month of May, 2017.
.
Train commuters from north travelling to the eastern region of the country were the ones who are said to be most affected by train delays in the month of May, 2017. The official data, collected by The Indian Express, stated that of the 19,450 trains that failed to report to its destinations on time (between May 1 to May 30), around
...
more...
11,600 – or 59.64 per cent – where from UP’s North Central Railway, Bihar’s East Central Railway, North Eastern Railway, Kolkata-based Eastern Railway and the New Delhi-based Northern Railway. When inquired about the prime reasons behind these delays, records said that these trains were halted due to causes within the control of the Railways department such as collateral damages, track issues, operational glitches and the ongoing maintenance works.
.
Even best considered trains of the country including Rajdhani trains, which runs of priority of path, were affected by these delays. Compared to the same period last year, the punctuality rate of Rajdhani trains are said to have dipped by 8.61 per cent to 78 per cent in April-May.
.
The report also listed some other prominent trains catering to the east were hit by these delays in April-May. The names include:
.
i. Shramjeevi Express – one of the most opted superfast train connecting New Delhi to Rajgir in Bihar via Varanasi and Patna, was delayed by more than one hour some 22 days in May, clocking a punctuality rate of 4 per cent.
.
ii. Magadha Express – considered to be one of the oldest trains linking New Delhi to Islampur in Bihar, logged almost a ‘zero percent’ punctuality rate during this period.
.
iii. Not just in May, but the situation were similar in June, too, with the Northeast Express, connecting New Delhi to Guwahati via Bihar running 14 hours behind schedule on June 8. On the same day, the Anand Vihar-Bhagalpur Garib Rath Express reached its destination 10 hours late.
.
Speaking to Indian Express on the condition of anonymity, Railway officials said that these delays, which often stretched to 15 hours, marked the worst performance by the Indian Railways in the recent year, excluding the fog-hit months of winter season. Justifying the delays, Railway Board Member (Traffic), Mohammad Jamshed said that the east-bound trains ran late because of the speed restrictions imposed due to a lot of planned work on the tracks related to maintenance and capacity augmentation.
.
“Trains, especially to eastern India, are getting delayed. That’s why our overall punctuality has taken a hit. But that’s mostly because a lot of planned work of doubling of lines as well as maintenance are going on for which trains have to run as slow as 20 km per hour at various stretches,” Jamshed said.
.
“This pain is temporary as work on capacity augmentation and maintenance are necessary and cannot be taken up once the monsoon sets in,” he added further.
.
The Railways has 33 categories of reasons for delays and seven out of them are not in its control. These reasons are alarm chain being pulled, protests on the tracks, bad weather, accidents, and law and order. The report further stated that in May only 8 per cent of the delays were due to the planned work, whereas 10.22 per cent of the delays were due to track related issues which include maintenance and safety-related speed restrictions
.
“Then there are causes over which we have no control, like when the Maoists called a bandh in the Dhanbad division for 10 days. Security agencies advised us to run at reduced speeds in those areas. Once a train gets delayed, it has a rippling effect on all other trains, creating a loop of late trains,” Jamshed said.
.
However, the data reflects that in May only 3.04 per cent trains were delayed due to law and order problems. According to Railways rules, a user can see train-running status of only up to two days, but records examined shows that the worst graph during the April-May was that of Hajipur (Patna)-based East Central Railway, which services Bihar and Jharkhand. As per the arrival data of this region, the punctuality rate dipped to almost 50 per cent during this time which means every second Bihar- Jharkhand train was running late.
.
Here is the punctuality details of other sectors in the east for April-May period:
.
i. Kolkata-based Eastern Railway marked a punctuality rate of around 69.8 per cent, which is a 7.9 per cent dip compared to the same period last year.
.
ii. Gorakhpur-based North Eastern Railway, which includes Lucknow and Varanasi divisions, dipped by 7.9 per cent to clock 63 per cent punctuality.
.
iii. Guwahati-based Northeast Frontier Railway’s punctuality rate was clocked at 74 per cent which is again a dip of 8.4 per cent from this period last year.
.
East Central Railways general manager, DK Gayen Indian Express, “Yes, there are delays. But whenever capacity augmentation work takes place, various speed restrictions come in because of which trains have to run at low speeds. It’s temporary. If you see, the situation has started getting back to normal in the past two-three weeks.”
