मुंबई Mumbai: Passengers travelling to Mumbai from Jabalpur on the Varanasi-LTT air-conditioned premium special train were in shock on Sunday as the train, which was running behind schedule, arrived and departed unnoticed. The stranded passengers were accommodated in the sleeper class of another train but will have to wait before the...

excess fare is refunded.
The train departs from Varanasi at 9.45am and arrives at 7pm at Jabalpur Junction. However, passengers were told the train was running behind schedule and will arrive at Jabalpur station at 10.15pm. Instead, the train arrived earlier and departed from the station at 9.15pm.
Railway authorities have blamed the train-running status software for the failure. Piyush Mathur, chief public relations officer, West Central Railway said, “The train-running status of the train could not be updated on the Centre for Railway Information System (CRIS). When passengers were tracking the train status online or through the train enquiry system, they found that it was running three hours behind schedule. Those passengers who turned up late at the station were unable to board the train.”
Ankit Soni, a passenger who traveled by the train and had bought a ticket for Rs 1800, said, “There was absolute chaos at Jabalpur station as well as when the train arrived at LTT. There was no announcement, nor did the station master seem to be aware about the train’s status.”
However, Mathur said, “Announcements were regularly made at stations about the status of the train. Since 37 passengers were stranded, a sleeper coach was attached to Godan Express and a Train Ticket Examiner was deputed. Passengers were issued Excess Fare receipt by deducting the fare for Godan Express between Jabalpur and LTT so that they can seek a refund.”
The Varanasi-LTT premium train has a dynamic fare system similar to an airline. Fares increase as the availability decreases and departure dates draw near. The base fare is equivalent to Tatkal fare but due to dynamic pricing it can increase by more than 100%.
Rakesh Singh, a passenger, who bought the ticket at Rs 8,000 said, “Some people had spent 10,000 to 15,000 to book a berth. We spent almost two hours at LTT station on Sunday to get the refund. However, the local authorities said we will have to apply online on the IRCTC website to get the refund.” Some passengers were travelling to Mumbai to catch international flights. Singh said, “A passenger told me he will be in the US for six months. How will he keep track of the refund?”
But Mathur said there was no other option. “Passengers will have to undergo the inconvenience and follow the refund procedure via IRCTC’s e-ticketing website.”

Funny thing a person tells he shall be in US for six months how can he track the refund???Via same ID from where he has booked the ticket in first place & shall be filling TDR
Hmm interesting to see how much refund they shall give to each person whether they shall provide just difference fare as per class or SL class charges deducted from the actual premium fare payed by the pax???Hope they don't get a jolt in reply from IRCTC that TDR has been filed after time limits..Funny thing a person tells he shall be in US for six months how can he track the refund???Via same ID from where he has booked the ticket in first place & shall be filling TDR..

ग्वालियर। ग्वालियर से चलकर भिण्ड जाने वाली पैसेंजर रेलवे स्टेशन पर गार्ड के इंतजार में 45 मिनट प्लेटफार्म पर खड़ी रही। तब ट्रेन का गार्ड घर पर सो रहा था। जब रेलवे अधिकारियों ने गार्ड को फोन कर जगाया, तब जाकर गार्ड की नींद खुली और वह स्टेशन आया।

रेलवे कर्मचारियों की लापरवाही एक बार फिर से उजागर हुई है। ग्वालियर से भिण्ड जाने वाली पैसेंजर सुबह 6.15 बजे भिण्ड के लिए रवाना होती है। शुक्रवार सुबह ग्वालियर-भिण्ड पैसेंजर भिण्ड जाने के लिए रेलवे स्टेशन के प्लेटफॉर्म-4 पर सुबह 5.45 बजे लग गई। ट्रेन के रवाना होने का समय हो गया, लेकिन ट्रेन पर जाने वाला गार्ड नहीं पहुंचा। पहले उसका इंतजार किया गया, लेकिन जब करीब 20 मिनट गुजर गए तो रेलवे अधिकारियों को सूचना दी गई।
इसके बाद गार्ड को रेलवे अधिकारियों ने फोन लगाने शुरू किए। जब मोबाइल की घंटी बजी तो गार्ड की नींद खुली। गार्ड ने मोबाइल उठाया, तब उसे ड्यूटी की याद आई। इसके बाद तो आनन-फानन में करीब 45 मिनट बाद गार्ड रेलवे स्टेशन पहुंच गया। गार्ड के रेलवे स्टेशन पहुंचने के बाद ट्रेन भिण्ड के लिए रवाना हुई। रेलवे अधिकारी लेट होने वाले गार्ड के नाम पर चुप्पी साध गए हैं। किसी ने भी गार्ड का नाम नहीं बताया। साथ ही रेलवे अधिकारी मामले को दबाने का प्रयास कर रहे हैं। झांसी में बैठे अधिकारियों को इस मामले की जानकारी नहीं दी गई है।
आधे घंटे पहले पहुंचना होता है गार्ड को
किसी ट्रेन पर जाने वाले गार्ड को ट्रेन रवाना होने के करीब आधा घंटा पहले पहुंचना होता है। गार्ड साथ में ले जाने वाली किट को चेक करने के बाद ट्रेन को रवाना करवाता है।
होनी चाहिए कार्रवाई
अगर कोई गार्ड समय पर नहीं पहुंचता है और गार्ड की वजह से अगर ट्रेन लेट रवाना होती है तो ट्रेन के गार्ड पर कार्रवाई की जाती है।
गार्ड की वजह से ट्रेन लेट हुई है, इसकी मुझे कोई जानकारी नहीं है। अगर ऐसा हुआ है तो यह गंभीर बात है। मैं इसे दिखवाता हूं।
रवि प्रकाश, जनसम्पर्क अधिकारी, झांसी रेल मंडल।

नई दिल्ली। नई दिल्ली रेलवे स्टेशन पर बिहार के दरभंगा जाने वाली 12566, बिहार संपर्क क्रांति एक्सप्रेस में चढ़ने की अफरा-तफरी में एक यात्री की मौत हो गई। शुरुआती जानकारी के अनुसार यह ट्रेन दोपहर करीब 1.45 बजे प्लेटफॉर्म नंबर 14 पर लगाई जा रही थी। प्लेटफॉर्म पर यात्रियों की...

भारी भीड़ थी। जैसे ही ट्रेन प्लेटफॉर्म पर आई, सामान्य कोच में सवार होने वाले यात्री दौड़ लगाने लगे। इसी क्रम में एक यात्री प्लेटफॉर्म से फिसलकर ट्रैक पर गिर गया और पहिए के नीचे आ गया।
अभी तक मृतक की पहचान नहीं हो सकी है। अभी भी प्लेटफॉर्म पर काफी भीड़ है और अफरा-तफरी का माहौल है। पब्लिक को संभालना पुलिस के लिए भी काफी मुश्किल हो रहा है। गौरतलब है कि 29 अक्टूबर को छठ पूजा है, जिसके लिए बिहार जाने वाली सभी ट्रेनों में काफी भीड़ है। यहां तक कि पहले से सीट आरक्षित कराए हुए यात्रियों को भी ट्रेन में चढ़ने के लिए काफी मुश्किलों का सामना करना पड़ रहा है।

अंबाला। दीपावली पर मुसाफिरों की भीड़ देख रेलवे ने जम्मूतवी एक्सप्रेस तो चला दी, लेकिन कर्मचारी उसकी लोकेशन अपडेटन करना भूल गए। इससे लोगों को भारी दिक्कतों का सामना करना पड़ा। ट्रेन एक के बाद एक स्टेशन से गुजरती रही, लेकिन यात्रियों को पता ही नहीं चलता।

बुधवार को जम्मू से इलाहाबाद के लिए ट्रेन (संख्या 04122) को दोपहर एक बजे रवाना होना था। मुसाफिरों की भारी भीड़ देखते हुए यह एसी स्पेशल चलाई गई थी। यह टे्रन जम्मू से छह घंटे विलंब से रवाना हुई। सात बजकर पांच मिनट पर टे्रन पटरी पर उतरी, लेकिन इलाहाबाद तक किसी भी स्टेशन को इसके चलने की कोई सूचना नहीं प्राप्त हुई।
ट्रेन का रुट पठानकोट, जालंधर कैंट, लुधियाना, अंबाला छावनी, दिल्ली, गाजियाबाद, अलीगढ़, कानपुर से वाया फतेहपुर होते हुए इलाहाबाद का था। लेकिन किसी भी स्टेशनों पर स्पेशल टे्रन के चलने की सूचना बुधवार रात डेढ़ बजे तक अपडेट नहीं की गई थी।
इन दस स्टेशनों पर टे्रन का इंतजार कर रहे मुसाफिरों को रेलवे की ओर से बताया गया कि टे्रन अभी जम्मू से ही रवाना नहीं हुई है। रेलवे पूछताछ नंबर 139 और आनलाइन भी टे्रन के बारे में कोई जानकारी नहीं मिल पा रही थी।

Oct 23 2013 (6:40PM)   Express train that travels at a speed of 10.6 kmph in Karnataka

At a time when the railways is mulling high-speed trains across the country, an express train takes six hours and 35 minutes to cover a distance of 69 kilometers between two stations of Karnataka, travelling at a speed of 10.6 km per hour.
...
Read more...
And this phenomenon is not a one-time thing.
This is how the official time table of the train has been prepared.
The train in question is the 15024 Yesvantpur-Gorakhpur express, which connects Gorakhpur to Bangalore via Lucknow.
As per the official railway timetable, the train leaves Yesvantpur in Karnataka at 11:40pm every Thursday and reaches Sirpur Kagaznagar at 3.09am, covering a distance of 913km.
From here the train departs at 3:10am for Balharshah, which is located at a distance of just 69km from Sirpur Kagaznagar. However, the train reaches Balharshah at 9.45am, taking a whopping 6.35 hours for the short distance.
Additionally, as per the timetable, the train also takes two hours and 45 minutes to cover the 91km distance between Itarsi junction and Bhopal.
Normally, an express train covers the same distance in little more than an hour.
The painfully slow speed of this train between some stations causes inconvenience to several passengers, who are not left with many options, as this is one of the very few trains connecting Lucknow to Karnataka.
“The train stops at more than half a dozen small stations between Sirpur Kagaznagar and Balharshah, perhaps to make up for the time,” said RK Nair, a Lucknow-based passenger.
However, the time taken by the train cannot be rectified unless the official time table of the train is changed.
The Gorakhpur headquarters of North Eastern Railway (NER), which manages the train in Uttar Pradesh, has informed the South Central Railway (SCR) under whose jurisdiction the two stations fall.
“We know about it and we have conveyed to SCR to address the problem,” said AK Singh, chief PRO of the NER.
When Hindustan Times contacted Sanbasiva Rao K, chief public relation officer of the SCR, he admitted to the ‘’operational problem’’, adding that it would be addressed only when the timetable is revised in July next year.
“It is because of unavailability of a suitable route ahead of Balharshah station which comes under central railway. We are waiting for an acceptance from the central railway for a new route. Hopefully it would be addressed in the next time table,” Rao K added.

The civic body has planned to introduce metro rail in the city and to make the plan viable, it decided to introduce 4 FSI along both sides of the metro corridor. It has also framed some rules for the same. As per the State government’s direction, the PMC had called for suggestions and objections on the issue and 5,400 citizens filed for objections against it. Nearly 90 per cent of the citizens who had filed the objections have opposed allowing 4 FSI along the metro corridors. Pune Municipal Commissioner Kunal Kumar has appointed City Engineer Prashat Waghmare to conduct hearing on the issue.
The city engineer’s office confirmed that every day, they are inviting 200 citizens for hearing. In last two days, the office had conducted the hearing of 400 people.
The PMC has decided to conduct the hearing of the remaining people after the Diwali vacation and the timetable for it will be published soon. Though the hearing is going on in the city, it did not get approval from the Central government. The proposal is pending with the Union government for final approval. The PMC claimed that they had complied with all the recommendations of the Central government.

The introduction of the 'premium' concept in tatkal booking has brought about a change that would have been unthinkable till a few days ago — vacant seats in trains till the time of departure. The total number of tickets under the tatkal premium scheme is 25 for 2AC and 18...

for 3AC. So the other half of seats in the tatkal category will be sold at regular prices.
Which trains have gone empty? The Mumbai-Delhi Rajdhani Express left Mumbai Central on Thursday with four seats each empty in 2AC and 3AC compartments. The Mumbai-Delhi August Kranti, which left on Thursday, had seven of its 25 2AC seats (28%) and 12 of its 18 3AC seats — a sizable 66% — vacant. This, officials said, was all the more stunning because this is the week ahead of Diwali when rush by travellers is at its peak.
What does WR data show? Western Railway data shows that over the past fortnight, almost all trains with premium tatkal schemes have departed with a few seats vacant. The prices of premium tatkal tickets have been 60-70% more than base price, said officials.
Scheme a pass or fail? Officials, as of now, are refusing to get into a debate on whether these vacant seats point to the scheme's failure. "Firstly, the premium tatkal concept is new and not many people might be knowing about it. Secondly, the high prices may have put off journeys that are not absolutely necessary. It is still early days," said a senior WR official. The railways, however, is pointing at another aspect of the scheme — availability of tickets till the last minute. Officials say it is helpful for those who have to make an unavoidable journey and are willing to pay a high price by railway standards but not the "stratospheric levels" of last-minute airline ticket prices.
Railways stands by the concept Speaking to dna, WR's chief spokesperson Sharat Chandrayan said, "This concept is enabling last-minute travellers, who are willing to pay a premium for the urgency, to travel. Moreover, it is a transparent system that has nullified the touts. The scheme is bound to do well." Meanwhile, the railway ministry too is gung-ho about the scheme and recently brought in more trains under it. Officials said in the months to come, almost all the high-patronage trains in the country will be brought under the scheme.

This is weird. The vacant seats in PT should have gone to CKWL and then to GNWL at charting, how did they stay vacant? Did the GNWL get completely exhausted? I don't think that it is likely.
