Nov 02 2016 (18:18)   Arasavalli temple set to get much-needed facelift

Finally, the Endowments Department has initiated steps for the developmental activities in the historic Arasavalli temple by approving the master plan which was prepared a couple of years back.
The department, in association with the temple authorities, is expected to spend around Rs. 10 crore for the creation of facilities for the pilgrims.
The temple attracts almost three lakh people on the day of Ratha Saptami and around 20,000 devotees every Sunday to have darshan of Lord Suryanarayana Swamy.
It

gets an annual income of Rs. 4 crore and has more than Rs. 18 crore worth in fixed deposits. Though the finances of the temple looked bright, the Endowments Department failed to take up developmental activities all these years. The ills that plague the temple include congestion created by vendors or hawkers at the temple’s entrance and increased traffic movement through the temple’s vicinity into residential areas — both making it difficult for pilgrims visiting the temple, especially on Sundays. Utter chaos prevails on festival days such as on Ratha Saptami.
The district administration has proposed removing the shops on either side of the road leading up to the temple and widening the road up to 60 feet.
Recently, Endowments Department Principal Secretary J.S.V. Prasad visited Arasavalli temple and expressed dissatisfaction over the functioning of the temple. He asked officials to begin road widening, creation of parking area, shifting of shops to identified place as part of the implementation of the master plan.
The works are likely to begin by the end of this year, according to higher officials. Road widening from Arasavalli arch to the main premises will be taken up very shortly.
A massive building, which is located in front of the main temple, is expected to be demolished so that the Sun’s rays fall directly into the premises of temple.
The implementation of master plan helps to construct more toilets, cloak rooms and accommodation facility. Indra Pushkarani will also get a makeover and it can be seen directly from the temple. The temple has no ‘Mada Veedhi’ as houses and commercial establishments had been built around the Sun temple.
Chief Priest of the temple Ippili Shankara Sarma told The Hindu that the temple would get all the facilities on a par with major ones such as Simhachalam Temple near Vishakapatnam, the Kanaka Durga Temple at Vijayawada and the Annavaram Temple of East Godavari district.

Coromandel touches CHE and VZM at odd time,that is why many people did not demand halt strongly for this. leave about JJKR even TDD has halt for Coro. many trains that stop at PSA does not stop at CHE. this is due to lesser income at CHE than PSA;more over CHE station is located in Amadalavalasa and not in Srikakulam. many ppl will prefer non-stop AC bus to VSKP which they can reach in 1:30 hrs.
one more funny thing is SC-Shalimar exp stops at PSA and SPT but not in CHE.

MADURAI:  Pulling up the Railway for scaling down unreserved coaches, including one for women, in a popular express train bound for Chennai while introducing LHB coaches, Madras High Court Bench in Madurai on Wednesday directed authorities to file a report on November 7 on the matter.
The court, hearing a PIL by an advocate, directed Railways to submit its view on attaching more general coaches in the Madurai-Chennai Pandian Express train.
Noting that ordinary passengers who cannot afford heavy bus fare were travelling in general compartments in trains and the railway service was

meant for poor people, the court sought to know what they would do if the general compartments were removed under the pretext of introducing new coaches.
The petitioner submitted that the train used to have 24 coaches. But from August 15 last, when the new modern LHB coaches, designed on German technology, were introduced, only 22 coaches were attached.
A women's coach and a general coach had been removed, which has affected the passengers travelling by general compartments, he said adding non-provision of women's coach was against railway rules.
Counsel who appeared for the Railway submitted that the LHB coaches were longer than the conventional coaches and only 22 coaches could be attached in proportion to the length of the platform.
If more coaches should be attached, the platform length should be extended, he said.
The court directed the railways to submit a report on the plea for attaching the two coaches.

i cancel a sleeper class ticket,they are looting 120 Rs in the name of clerical charge even though i cancel online.
Railways motto should be service and not commercial..who wanted pizza burger on board? who needs a bullet train worth lakhs of crores when normal express trains itself not sufficient and not punctual?
this govt is not moving in right direction,when the railway budget is merged with union budget,let the loss be carried by finance dept.in fact railways need not run in losses if there is a proper vigilance in ticket checking and stop running empty trains.
instead of adding more people under tax bracket,(almost 50% of the people who earn more than 5 lacs gets escaped)this govt found soft targets like railway travelers,salaried employees and petrol/diesel consumers.

haha..if they follow the policy,half the halts of every train will go off;
Railways should realize that the origination motto is service and not business; whatever loss Railways get,GOI should bare that;Train is poor mans flight;people from small towns/areas travel to cities,therefore stoppage at small stations is necessary.
Govt should treat Railways like Education/Health/Justice and should not look at commercial angle.

Waitlist quota for Vizag and north Andhra on Chennai superfast express being changed to ‘pooled quota’
The waitlist quota for Visakhapatnam and north Andhra on the Chennai-Bhubaneswar Super Fast express has been changed from the ‘general wait list’ to ‘pooled quota’ with effect from September-end this year.
This train, which was earlier Visakhapatnam – Chennai express, was extended to Bhubaneswar by East Coast Railway in the same way as several other important originating trains from Visakhapatnam were extended to Bhubaneswar. This shows the continuing discrimination of ECoR against Waltair Division, says an RTI

activist. The ECoR headquarters had first extended the train to Bhubaneswar and are now ready to make a dent in the quota of berths. This train is the lifeline for the people of Visakhapatnam and north Andhra working in Chennai, who can board this train on Friday night to reach Visakhapatnam, early the next morning The ECoR headquarters in Bhubaneswar had also ignored the pleas of Visakhapatnam MP Kambhampati Haribabu, Union Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu and other leaders for increasing the speed of the AP AC Express from Visakhapatnam to New Delhi and modify the timings so that the train reached Delhi in the early hours. The timings of the highly patronised Visakhapatnam-Krishnarajapuram express were changed to the detriment of passengers from Visakhapatnam and north Andhra and now the special train has not been extended. The South Western Railway had agreed to run the train but ECoR is delaying the start of the train for reasons best known to it, the RTI activist charged.

Jun 07 2016 (16:37)   Upgrade Bhubaneswar Inter-City express
 

Mangalagiri   6 news posts
Entry# 1884708   News Entry# 270276         Tags   Past Edits
I'm a frequent traveller from Bhubaneswar to Visakhapatnam by 18463 (Prasanthi Express) or 12867 (Aurobindo) or 18047 (Amaravati) or 12254 (Anga) Express. I find that Prasanthi is preferred by many people going to Bengaluru. More importantly it is a perfect day time (unreserved) Inter City Express between Bhubaneswar and Vizag,” says Bhaskar, frequent traveller on this route.
Even though it is a train with reserved Sleeper (11) and AC (5) coaches it is very common and well-known practice that many people buy general tickets and board the Sleeper coaches. As a result it is bringing losses to East Coast Railway and profits to the TTEs.

the demand, an Inter City Express (18411) was introduced between these two cities but it is having poor patronage as it is relatively a small train (only 10 coaches), 25 halts and it takes nearly nine hours.
The need of the hour is to upgrade the Inter City to superfast train, reduce the halts, travel time and allow it to run in the present 18463 (Prasanthi Express) schedule, i.e., Departure from Bhubaneswar at 5.30 a.m. and arrival at Visakhapatnam at 12.45 p.m.
The railways should restrict the present Prasanthi Express between Visakhapatnam and Bengaluru (as it used to be before extension to Bhubaneswar) and it could act as Link Express to the Inter City Express between Visakhapatnam and Bhubaneswar.
By the time Inter-City reaches Visakhapatnam station Prashanti Express should be kept ready on the adjacent platform (PF 3) and should depart at its scheduled time at 1.05 p.m. from Visakhapatnam.

this is very bad on part of IR as without increasing speed,they are making it as SF from 10th July;they wanted to loot from small stations people.
actually they should have started a new SF express with 22819/20 with diffrent time slots and imp stoppages keeping the current 18411/12 intact.
