उत्तर पश्चिम रेलवे सफाई व्यवस्था को लेकर सालाना करोड़ों रुपए खर्च कर रहा है। मकसद है कि स्टेशन पर किसी तरह की गंदगी नजर न आए। इसके लिए रेलवे स्टेशनों पर हाईकेट तरीके से सफाई के इंतजाम किए गए हैं।

रेलवे के मुताबिक स्टेशनों पर सफाई तथा स्वच्छता के लिए 27 स्टेशनों पर आधुनिकतम मशीनों से मैकेनाइज्ड क्लीनिंग की जा रही है, जिनमें ए 1 श्रेणी के 3 स्टेशनों जयपुर, जोधपुर एवं अजमेर स्टेशनों पर इस काम के लिए 7.09 करोड़ रुपए सालाना खर्च किए जा रहे हैं। इसके अतिरिक्त ए
श्रेणी के 21 स्टेशनों पर 6.32 करोड़ रुपए तथा बी श्रेणी के 3 स्टेशनों पर 1.17 करोड़ रुपए की राशि सालाना खर्च की जा रही है।
इसके अतिरिक्त जयपुर स्टेशन पर 22 तथा जोधपुर स्टेशन पर 18 ट्रेनों में क्लीन ट्रेन स्टेशन के तहत सफाई की जा रही है। स्टेशन पर होने वाले कचरे के निस्तारण के लिए भारतीय रेलवे के प्रथम सॉलिड वेस्ट मैनेजमेंट प्लांट की स्थापना जयपुर स्टेशन पर की गई है। 0.5 टन कचरा निस्तारण क्षमता के इस प्लांट से बायो गैस प्राप्त की जा रही है, जो किरेलवे रनिंग रूम में काम में ली जा रही है। इस प्लांट के स्थापित होने के कचरा निस्तारण के साथ-साथ पर्यावरण संरक्षण की कवायद सफल रही है।

Union Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha on Friday said the Hubballi-Varanasi train service will be introduced on May 23, while the day train between Hubballi and Mysuru will also be launched the same day.
Speaking after releasing the commemorative postage stamp on Sri Hangal Kumar Swamiji as part of the seer’s 150th birth anniversary celebrations, Sinha noted that the demand to introduce the train service between Hubballi and Mangaluru will also be considered.
The project to bring 2.50 lakh gram panchayats in the country under the optical fibre cable (OFC) network
to give broadband internet connection at 100 mbps speed will be completed by the end of 2018, and these rural areas will have Wifi hotspots. In the first phase, one lakh gram panchayats will be covered by June-end, he said, adding that steps will be taken to improve the signal strength of the BSNL mobile network.
Earlier, he told mediapersons that mobile connectivity is being provided in the hilly, naxal-affected and backward areas also. E-commerce, passport service and payment bank service will be provided through the Postal department, he said.
On the suspicious death of Karnataka cadre IAS officer, Anurag Tewari, Sinha told mediapersons that the Uttar Pradesh government will not hesitate to hand over the case to the CBI, if needed.

Kitne Logon Ko lgta hai ki traino me Ladies Boggie ki sankhya bdhai jaani chahiye.. bcoz traino me ek hi Ladies Boggie hoti hai jo kafi nahi hai. Traino me kafi rush hota hai jiski bjah se mahilaye Gate ke paas baithkr travel krti hain. Jo sahi hai kahin bhi aur kabhi bhi bda hadsa ho skta hai.. Mahilayon ki security bhi traino me bahut km hoti jaa rahi hai.. Railway ko isme Laprwahi nahi brtni chahiye.. Mahilayon ki safety ke liye jld se jld karye krna chahiye..

May 18 2017 (15:17)   देश का सबसे साफ़ विशाखापट्टनम रेलवे स्टेशन

नई दिल्ली। देश के स्वच्छ शहरों को लेकर सर्वे रिपोर्ट सामने आने के बाद अब देश के 75 व्यस्त रेलवे स्टेशन्स की सफाई व्यवस्था का सर्वे किया गया। इस सर्वे में विशाखापट्टनम को स्वच्छ और साफ स्टेशन बताया गया। बिहार का दरभंगा रेलवे स्टेशन देश के सबसे गंदे स्टेशन के तौर पर सामने आया। गौरतलब है कि यह देश के सबसे व्यस्त स्टेशन्स में शामिल है। मिली जानकारी के अनुसार नई दिल्ली को 39 वां क्रम प्राप्त हुआ है। दरअसल निजामुद्दीन रेलवे स्टेशन को 3 वां और पुरानी दिल्ली रेलवे स्टेशन को 4 वां क्रम दिया गया है।
इस तरह का सर्वेक्षण भारतीय गुणवत्ता परिषद द्वारा किया गया। रेल मंत्री सुरेश प्रभु ने स्वच्छता सर्वेक्षण रिपोर्ट को जारी करने के बाद कहा
कि रेल मंत्रालय की मंशा है कि सभी स्टेशन साफ रहें। हालांकि कई स्टेशन ऐसे हैं जहां पर स्वच्छता के मामले में रैंकिंग में सुधार हुआ है और इन क्षेत्रों में स्वच्छता को लेकर काम भी हुआ है।
उल्लेखनीय है कि स्टेशन्स पर कई आधुनिक मशीनों से साफ सफाई की जा रही है। प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी के लोकसभा निर्वाचन क्षेत्र वाराणसी का रेलवे स्टेशन 14 वें क्रम पर था। दरअसल उक्त सर्वेक्षण कुल 407 स्टेशन्स पर किया गया। मिली जानकारी के अनुसार ए 1 श्रेणी में दरभंगा रेलवे स्टेशन 75 वें क्रम पर था।

May 18 2017 (12:45)   Hindutva is the flavour of the season for Indian Railways under BJP regime

Railfan~   1 news posts
Entry# 2281546   News Entry# 302751         Tags   Past Edits
Hindutva is the flavour of the season for the Indian Railways.
After the BJP-led NDA government assumed office in May 2014, names of trains, stations, rail circuits or schemes have been largely inspired by the saffron ideology.
Christening of “Mahamana Express” after former Hindu Mahasabha president Madan Mohan Malviya and the Antodaya Express in memory of Bharatiya Jana Sangh ideologue Deen Dayal Upadhyaya are the pointers to the latest trend.
BJP is the offshoot of the Jana Sangh.
The Indian Railways also launched the “Deen Dayalu’ coaches to commemorate Upadhyaya and renamed Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji terminal as the Chhatrapati Shivaji ‘Maharaj’ terminal to strengthen the myth surrounding the Hindu warrior king.
The state-owned transporter is also renaming 16 other zones, suburban and wayside stations in the Western Railways.
The Osiwara station, for instance, has been rechristened as the Ram Mandir station, while the Eliphistone Road station is now called the Prabha Devi station.
Critics allege the BJP is on a renaming spree to appeal to religious sentiments and consolidate its support base along faith lines.
The party also courted controversy by renaming some popular roads in the national capital allegedly pandering to its Hindutva ideology.
The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) renamed Dalhousie Road as Dara Shikoh Road, the Race Course Road as Lok Kalyan Marg and Aurangzeb Road after former president APJ Abdul Kalam.
Dara Shikoh, elder brother of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb translated the Upanishads in Persian.
But the BJP’s Hindutva push is not restricted to names alone.
On Saturday last the Railways announced a plan to conduct a preliminary engineering and traffic (PET) survey to lay a broad gauge line connecting the “Char Dhams” (four Hindu pilgrimage sites) in Uttarakhand.
A circuit train connecting religious centers such as Haridwar and Vaishno Devi is also on the anvil.
Train names and schemes are also heavily borrowed from the Sanskrit lexicon. The “Uday” – a train shortly to be launched – is an acronym for “Utkrisht Double Decker Air Conditioned Yatri”. The Special Unit for Transport Research and Analytics is called the “SUTRA”.
Train names have always remained symbolic of the dominant political ideology of the period.
In the first flush of the country’s independence, trains took patriotic names such as the Azad Express, Satyagraha Express, Chauri Choura Express, Hutatma (Martyr) Express or the Jallianwala Bagh Express.
After the socialists had their brush with power at the national level, trains acquired egalitarian names such as the Jan Nayak Express (in memory of Jayaprakash Narain) or the Janata (People’s) Express, Kisan Express (farmer’s train), the Sampoorna Kranti (total revolution) express .
A large chunk of trains have feminine names: Archana Express, Gitanjali Express, Pooja Express, Meenakshi Express, Padmavati Express or the Shipra Express. While such names are probably inspired by mythological, religious or historical figures or locations, another set of trains have been named purely on religious line. These trains are Akal Takht Express, Ala Hazrat Express, Amarnath Express, Bhagirathi Express, Golden Temple Mail, Kashi Vishwanath Express, Mahabodhi Express among others.
One category has historical names (Haldighati Fast Passenger, Kalinga Utkal Express, Hampi Express, Lichavi Express, Mauyra Express, Tipu Express, Vaishali Express or the Vikramshila Express), while a clutch of trains have been named after the rivers of India (Ganga-Damodar Express, Godavri Express, Ganga Sagar Express or the Ganga-Sutlej Express).
Some trains have a simple names (Steel Express, for instance), while others have attention-grabbing names such as the Honeymoon Express.

I booked a ticket on 17-Mar-2017 and the PNR is 6162722734, at the booking time the situation was RAC 11, now in the IRCTC website I am finding that the status is WL2.
I never found this kind of situation before.
