as rail budget comes nearer, all the rail fans are anticipating new train announcements and other good things.we all know IR short of funds this time and to lessen the burden they r going to advance ARP by 120 days (a good move). as there r more serious railfans out there, lets pour suggestions on how IR can increase profitability and get funds via other route??? (leave fancy train announcements apart and focus more on small technicals).
1.one suggestion on my part is to convert Yuva trains to short distance shatabdi trains.
2.increase cost of platform ticket to 10 (which is not much) which i think will not be opposed understanding the harassment we get into while not having change.
...

3.open tenders for MNCs like MC'Donalds, Subway, Dominos etc on setting food courts on big station premises.

1.Permanent cancellation of trains with very poor patronage and using rakes for more demanded new trains, this will increase revenue plus will decrease the pressure from original route.
2.Diversion of trains through routes with more demand and less traffic instead of using same main lines.
3.Some Express trains runs equally like superfasts. Some with same time slot and some with few number of stops. They should be converted into superfasts. Example, 12508, 12516, 12510, 12514 and 15902, share same time slot between Guwahati-Vijaywada. 15902 can be converted into superfast. 18103 Tata-Amritsar Express runs like a SF train with less halts and on time. It should be converted into SF.
4.Increasing cost of platform ticket to Rs 5 which is not too
...

much to pay.
5.Many people travel in trains, mostly in passenger trains without ticket because usually tickets are not checked in those trains. TTEs should strictly check tickets in those passenger trains and fine them. Absence of TTEs in such trains has become an advantage for people.
6.The system of advanced unreserved ticket beyond a journey of 200 kms should be changed. According to new rule we can buy unreserved tickets from A to B from station C. Example, if you have to travel from Kolkata to Meerut but there is no direct train and you have reservation from Howrah to Ghaziabad but at Ghaziabad you have no time to buy unreserved ticket from Ghaziabad to Meerut. New rule should allow you to buy this advanced unreserved ticket from Howrah before your journey to Ghaziabad so that you can board any train at GZB without standing in queue and buying a ticket but with additional Rs 2 of charge.
6.Removing 2AC coaches from short distance overnight trains and replacing them with 3AC coaches. Example- 18623/18624 Hatia-Rajendranagar Express.

Sometimes, when we do not have change, better to leave Rs. 10 note with the clerk instead of getting the cost itself increased to Rs. 10.

sir it is wrong to say this bcoz the money will go to clerk pocket rather than IR.
it will not help IR crunch funds but improve clerks bank balance.so better to have a law made for the IR than allow and encourage small ticket corruption!!!

1. All AC durontos with less than 50% occupancy shd be converted partly AC and Partly SL Class. Thus occupancy increases as aam aadmi can travel in durontos and also AC coaches will be freed for newer trains to come.
.
2. Advts in Durontos to look more colourful and generate revenues.
.
3. Immediate electrification and rail doubling whereever possible. this will free up more slots and trains can run much more faster. Long term benefits.

We are discussing +ve ways of increasing revenues.... Few -ve points from where we can change d system

and also increasing revenues for IR.
.
1. Levying Penalty for dumping wastes in platforms / outside trains etc...PPL shd use Garbage Bin only.
2. Fining Contractors who do not regularly empty dustbins frm trains / cleaning. Since dustbins are not emptied regularly ppl throw out.

As per my view, Indian Railways is planning to make their stations more Like day today's mall, In near future we would find shopping center, food stalls of major companies, in a way a railway station would have all the things we find at a mall may be not at all station but major ones. Railways would generate huge revenues by giving their premises to such multinational companies for the utility by common need by common people.
Large areas of land is lying vacant at station premises, Railways are planning to float tenders soon for opening of Food stalls, shopping centers etc.. Very soon we will find Kfc, Pizza hut, big bazaar etc at your nearest station..

i really liked ur -ve points of increasing revenues.as a responsible & sincere citizen i personally feel IR should be much strict on fines.when i see the same people travelling in delhi metro he behaves well mannered and same person becomes irresponsible when coming to railway stations. fine is one answer but more than that they should be made to feel ashamed on what they r doing in front of whole crowd with heavy RPF in place (in case they quarrel).

Sir, platform ticket to rs.10?? no, it should be made rs.2 and should be given by machines on dropping coins(remember weighing machines in stations).(which is minimum ticket in IR.)

My side suggestions:
1.Revisiting concept of durantos.(I dont say to introduce stops but i say to reduce number)
2.rounding of fares: express fares can be rounded to nearest 5 for small hike and fast issue of tickets.
3.dedicated counters at stations to issue tickets to dedicated places.
4.expanding internet booking facilities.
5.Adveritsing inside trains: in the space between berths etc.
6.better utilisation of rakes.
7.increasing coach carrying capacity to 80.
8.Let the TTE check tickets in general compartments
...

during runtime in duty.
(the duty of tte is 6 hrs and he completes in 30 min and sits idle. let him go for a round fo checking)
9.cancel flop durantos.

I had seen several times in Suburban trains near Chennai surroundings. Quite a few times at Gummidipundi station. A large no.of RPF'S they form a circle around the local train. And same with the ticket squad they check each and every person. Here no one can't escape from these Squad and RPF personals. And they form a group of ticketless travelers and they board them into a vendors coach. While getting down at Chennai they untie their shirt lower buttons and tie the half part of shirt with another person. After tieing they escort them to the court for fine and punishment. While going to the court how much embarassment they feel coz each and everybody will see them. And maybe next time they travel with proper ticket.

As per media report clones are the train which will introduced when the waiting list for the actual train exceed 500-600(Exactly i dont know the figure).
In that case another train will be arranged for those waiting list passengers and that train will follow actual train with minimum gap. That train called as clone.
As of now full rules of this system not released. May be after budget we will get better idea on this.

i think instead of running a clone train , more coaches can be added that will save on engine costs and pantry charges.moreover no confusion will prevail on boarding the train in ahurry!!!

Already many demanded trains running with 24 coaches maximum limit...Also if we want to clear 600 WL...10 extra coaches required. So for high demand adding coaches are not enough.

yes , the passenger name(my friend) is correct.
but the problem lies here: i phoned him just now and he said he don't have a pan card.now all the id's accepted as valid by indian rail shows passenger address except pan card.
what should i suggest him now???
should i suggest him to apply for pan card which will be delivered in 1 months time???

Address is not a problem. Any valid ID proof in original is sufficient, even if it carries another address.

and in politics there is obc quota,sc & st quota,now a minority quota.
this govt. has made a hell with the quotas.in my view there should be only one quota and that is to the poor (on basis of uid & latest census) bcoz nowadays even some obc,sc,st,minority are wealthy enough to apply for quota for getting a job.
as far as railways r concerned there should be only one quota that is tatkal and others should be converted into this only just like LIC was born.
why should a bureaucrat (DM/DRM) be given preference to a student (who has a interview to attend in order to become a DM/DRM ?

Grand chord section is the lifeline of the country on which Coal, Steel and other important goods are moved from Eastern section to Western and Northern section of the country.
The Grand Chord section is critically important for handling major passenger trains on the Howrah-Delhi route, particularly all the Rajdhani Expresses from Howrah, Bhubaneswar and Ranchi and the entire freight traffic, particularly coal, handled by the Dhanbad division of East Central Railway.

Grand Chord and Chord Line are 2 different lines. The Grand Chord is what Prabhakar has described. But the chord line is the alternate line between Howrah and Barddhaman via Dankuni as different from the Main Line between these 2 stations which is via Bandel. The chord line (95 kms) is shorter than the Main line (106 kms). The two lines separate at Bally (10 kms from Howrah) and then reunite at Shaktigarh which is 12 kms before Barddhaman.

The second one with reference to what Prabhakar has mentioned is the MAIN LINE from Howrah to Mughalsarai via Madhupur, Jasidih,Jhajha, Kiul,Mokama, PATNA, Arrah and Buxar (757 kms) as opposed to the GRAND CHORDvia Dhanbad/Gaya which is 661 kms. The two lines separate at Sitarampur(222 kms from Howrah) immediately after Asansol and reunite just before Mughalsarai.

The Chord Line is the high speed sector in ER, through which majority Mail/EXpress/Superfast trains ply, including Rajdhani, Duronto, Poorva, Kalka, Darjeeling, Sampark Kranti, etc.. It is a less traffic 130 kmph max speed zone as against the chock-a-block (with EMU) 110 kmph max speed Main Line Zone.
