One thing I noticed in Kalka mail was how rugged and worn off its coaches are (almost all). With 1996 date made coaches (20 years) HWH as I find is notorious for using so old and rusty coaches for all popular trains running daily be it Kalka, Mumbai mail, Chennai Mail/ Coromondel. It is so weird that we talk of flagship industrial programmes but our manufacturing is yet to be at par with needs.

Budget 2017: Indian Railways may hike fares as Ministry mulls safety cess The railway ministry may push for a special levy on train fares to create a dedicated Rs 1.2 lakh crore safety fund; finance ministry likely to finance 25 percent of the this fund
Passengers may have to shell out more for travelling by train as the railway ministry may impose a specific cess on train tickets to fund the Rs 1.20 lakh crore safety fund-- Rashtriya Rail Sanraksha Kosh. While fares for AC one-tier and two-tier are likely to see a marginal increase, passengers travelling on second class and AC three-tier could be hit harder because of a proportionately lower fare base. An announcement on imposing a safety cess on
train fares is likely to be announced in the budget for 2017-18, which finance minister Arun Jaitley is scheduled to present on February 1.
Last month, railway minister Suresh Prabhu had written to Jaitley requesting complete funding for the fund. The finance ministry, however, rejected the railway ministry’s proposal for financing of the new safety fund from the consolidated fund of India. The finance ministry has agreed to finance only 25 percent of the fund and has asked the railways to raise the remaining three-fourth of the required sources for the special corpus. This will be a specific cess, like the road cess collected on sale of diesel to build highways. The money collected through this cess will be pooled into the Rashtriya Rail Sanraksha Kosh and administered by the railways for a specific purpose. A committee, constituted by the railway ministry, for putting together a consolidated proposal for creation of the safety cess, in its report, has envisaged works of track renewal and upgradation, bridge rehabilitation, elimination of level-crossings, construction of road over bridges/road under bridges, replacement and improvement of signalling system, among others. The cess will likely be part of the union budget with the government merging the railway budget with the central budget from 2017-18. A key reason for the abandoning the 92 year-old practice of a separate railway budget from 2017-18 may have been hastened by the state-transportation giant’s delicate balance sheet. It is learnt that the Railways Ministry had sought exemption from paying dividends to the Centre this year, amid rise in additional salary and pension spending following the seventh pay commission recommendations. A combined budget could free the Indian Railways from setting aside nearly Rs 10,000 crore towards dividends to the government every year. Once the budgets are merged, the financial stress can be moved to the Centre’s overall annual financial plan.

Seems you are having some confusion. These are the coaches of 12583/84 LJN-ANVT double decker as the DD is cancelled due to fog for 2 months these coaches has arrived to its Base GKP for a periodic overhaul as GKP is the only place in NER which has a POH depot and train coaches like DD LJN-R GR and other from adjoining zones like ECR and NCR regularly comes to GKP for POH.

Jan 13 2017 (15:53)   शताब्दी में वेलकम ड्रिंक पीते ही एनआरआई समेत 7 यात्री बेहोश

जय हो ™   2051 news posts

लुधियाना। अमृतसर-नई दिल्ली शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस में वेलकम ड्रिंक पीने के बाद एनआरआई समेत 7 पैसेंजर बेहोश हो गए। यात्रियों का आरोप था कि ड्रिंक में कैरोसीन की तरह की दुर्गंध रही थी। मौके पर पहुंचे अफसरों की टीम ने पैंट्री कार से ड्रिंक और खाने की अन्य चीजों के सैंपल जांच के लिए लैब भेज दिए।
बेहोश होने वाले यात्रियों में सी-13 में लंदन से आए जसपाल सिंह सेठी, सी-3 में उषा खन्ना और उनके परिवार के 4 मेंबर्स और अंजना पुरी और उनके पति शामिल हैं। जैसे ही ट्रेन में लोगों के बेहोश होने की सूचना मिली तो एकदम ट्रेन में अनाउंसमैंट करवा दी गई। डॉ. चेतना, ट्रैफिक इंस्पेक्टर आरके शर्मा, एसएस अशोक सलारिया, आरपीएफ के इंस्पेक्टर विनोद कुमार, जीआरपी के
इंस्पेक्टर इंदरजीत सिंह मौके पर पहुंचे। बेहोश हुए यात्रियों को फस्ट एड देने के बाद ट्रेन रवाना कर दी गई। ट्रेन अमृतसर से ही करीब 1 घंटा लेट चली थी और लुधियाना स्टेशन पर भी करीब 50 मिनट लेट हो गई।
इस कारण यात्रियों को काफी परेशानी का सामना करना पड़ा। लंदन से आए जसपाल सिंह ने बताया कि वह श्री दरबार साहिब में माथा टेकने के बाद वापस जा रहे थे। ट्रेन में नींबू पानी दिया गया तो एकदम उल्टी की शिकायत हुई। 5-6 उल्टियां आने के बाद वह बेहोश हो गए। इसी कोच में सवार सुनील ने तुरंत रेलवे कंट्रोल पर इसकी सूचना दी। बाद में पता चला कि दूसरे कोच में भी कुछ यात्री बेहोश हो गए हैं। लुधियाना स्टेशन पर पहुंचते ही अफसर डॉक्टरों की टीम लेकर पहुंच चुके थे। यह भी कहा जा रहा है कि नींबू पानी बाहर से मंगवाया गया था। इसे लेकर भी टीम जांच कर रही है।
हर रोज एक ही कंपनी का नींबू पानी सर्व किया जाता है। वीरवार को भी उसी कंपनी का नींबू पानी सर्व किया गया था। हो सकता है कि किसी यात्री की तबीयत पहले ही खराब हो। कंपनी की तरफ से क्वालिटी का पूरा ध्यान रखा जाता है। डॉक्टरों की टीम ने सैंपल भी लिए हैं। -महेश मिश्रा, पैंट्री मैनेजर
पता चलते ही टीम स्टेशन पर पहुंच गई थी। ट्रेन में पैंट्री से सैंपल भरे गए हैं। डॉक्टरों की स्पेशल टीम सैंपल लेने के लिए ट्रेन के साथ भी भेजी गई है। रिपोर्ट आने के बाद ही अगली कार्रवाई की जाएगी। फिलहाल सभी यात्रियों की हालत ठीक है। -आरके शर्मा, ट्रैफिक इंस्पेक्टर
