Slamming Railway's move to sell half of its tatkal tickets under dynamic pricing, a Parliamentary panel today recommended reducing the premium on such tickets to a "minimum essential level" as the system was "legitimising inequality".
"It is high time Railways institutionalise

the concerns of the poor. The committee would, therefore like the Ministry to reduce premium on tickets of tatkal reservation to a minimum essential level," the Public Accounts Committee on Railways said in its report tabled in Parliament today.     
It observed that those who can afford to pay premium as well as those who have access to internet are getting their confirmed berths without any hassles whereas those who cannot are not getting the tickets.
The panel also felt that the percentage of advanced reservation is enhanced and that tatkal reservation should be reduced to a feasible and sustainable level in the greater interest of the travelling public.
"The system was legitimising inequality," the committee said.
The committee also suggested that a certain quota restriction should be put on ticket reservation bookings by internet so as to provide a better equitable opportunity for the poor, disadvantaged and deprived classes of society having no access to internet, thus making them available the benefit of ticket reservation in a more fair and just manner.
Taking serious note of 24 Rail Travellers Service Agents (RTSA) operating without furnishing any license fee, security deposits and without any liability, the committee recommended an appropriate enquiry against the officials responsible and disciplinary proceedings against them.
These RTSAs are operating from railway premises on the basis of injunction of the Calcutta High Court given 27 years ago.
"The committee, therefore, desires details of the measures taken in chronological order to get the stay vacated and steps being taken presently to remedy the situation."
It felt that such blatant flouting of norms may not be possible without the connivance of local railway officials and sought disciplinary action against officials responsible for flouting norms.

The concept of premium train services on dynamic fare over and above the regular train services has been introduced with effect from 24.12.2013.The fare of premium special trains on dynamic pricing increases depending upon the demand and availability of accommodation. The base fare of these trains is the normal adult fare applicable for the trains plus the tatkal charges and the fare can increase based on demand intensity subject to a prescribed maximum limit.

are safe, railway officials said.
Describing the incident as a "side collision", East Central Railway Chief Public Relations Officer Arvind Rajak said, "North East Express was supposed to pass through Barh station but stopped following pulling of its chain after crossing the home signal at around 6.55 AM."
"At around the same time UP Kiul-Patna passenger train, which was detained at a common loop line at Barh station began to move and passed the starter signal in danger, resulting in side collision with North East Express," he said.
"The front unit or motor coach of the passenger train, which was a DMU (Diesel Multiple Unit) train, was derailed by one wheel and stopped. All passengers are safe," Rajak said.
Some passengers jumped out from both the trains in panic but none was injured.
Rajak said the movement of trains on up and down lines is yet to resume. The up main line is clear, while engineering help and Accident Relief Train (ART) have been called to clear the down line blocked by North East Express.
Officials have been working for restoration of the services and the express train will resume onward journey once the obstruction was removed, officials said.
The ECR has released helpline number 0612-2213234 and toll free number 0612-1072, Danapur 06115-232032 and Mugalsarai 05412-25415 to help people inquire about the wellbeing of their kin and friends.

Dec 12 (2:04AM)   World Bank to lend $1.1 billion for eastern railway freight corridor

Mumbai: The World Bank on Thursday signed an agreement to lend $1.1 billion to India to build the eastern dedicated railway freight corridor. “The project will help increase the capacity of these freight-only lines by raising the axle-load limit from 22.9 to 25 tonnes and enable speeds of up to...

100km per hour. It will also help develop the institutional capacity of the DFCCIL (Dedicated Freight Corridor Corp. of India Ltd) to build and maintain the DFC (dedicated freight corridor) infrastructure network,” the bank said in an emailed statement. The agreement is the second after the first loan of $975 million for the 343km Khurja-Kanpur section for a project that was approved by the World Bank in May 2011. “90% of the 1,245ha land needed for the project has been acquired from 22,000 land owners with Rs.336 crore paid off as compensation, in addition to agreed resettlement and rehabilitation benefits,” the World Bank said. The agreement was signed by Tarun Bajaj, joint secretary, department of economic affairs, M.K. Mittal, director, finance of DFCCIL, and Onno Ruhl, country director for World Bank in India. The eastern freight corridor is 1,839km long and extends from Ludhiana to Kolkata. India is building two freight corridors, in the east and the west, which will help the country increase its railway transportation capacity by building higher-speed dedicated freight corridors. Currently, the rail routes that form a golden quadrilateral connecting Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata account for 16% of the railway network’s route length, but carry more than 60% of India’s total rail freight, according to the World Bank. “The Indian Railways urgently needs to add freight routes to meet the growing freight traffic in India, which is projected to increase more than 7% annually. Dedicated freight corridors will not only meet this growing freight demand, but also decongest the already saturated rail network and promote the shifting of freight transport from road to more efficient rail transport,” Ben Eijbergen, lead transport specialist and task team leader for the project from World Bank, said in a statement. “We are determined to adhere to the scheduled completion target of eastern corridor by December 2019. 90% of land acquisition for Kanpur-Mughal Sarai section, for which the loan agreement is being signed today, has been completed, and the contract for civil works will also be finalized by January. With the finalization of these contracts, the work will be progressing in two-thirds of the total length of eastern corridor,” Adesh Sharma, managing director of DFCCIL, said in the statement.

This train hardly caters to Goa. It only terminates in Goa. I wonder, who is going to board this train in Sawantwade and Ratnagiri. There are hardly any takers for the Rajdhani and Garib Rath trains. As has been the case with other trains, probably this is WRs' gift to the people of these places so that they can board the train with a general ticket as is seen in other trains

the words "rail passengers of Mumbai especially of Western suburban like Borivali and Vasai" is used to focus attention about this train. I dont think this will be the first option of these peole. They would rely on CR section of mumbai with dedicated trains like 10113,10111 and so. Although being premium its future is in doubt whether it will be a hit or not.

There are three problems with Vasco: One is jurisdictional: VSG belongs to SWR which adds one more layer to the entire scheduling process. And you look at trains terminating at VSG, except for Amravati Express all trains terminating there are SWR owned. Maybe they don't give berthing space? Next is that VSG is the station mainly catering for Mormugao port. That could be a reason. The last is operational. Trains coming from Mumbai would have to be reversed at MAO. This also ties up the same line within a window of 10 minutes. Though MAO-VSG might seem as double line, it is in fact two single lines.
