Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu says he has started different products to suit the needs of his wide range of customers. He talks to Richa Sharma about the need for dynamic fare system, enhancing passenger safety and improving railway finances. Excerpts:
Railways is facing stiff competition from low cost airlines.
We are starting different products to attract different passenger group. We have to keep in mind premium passengers and have launched trains such as Tejas that provide airline like facilities at lesser cost.
has flexi fare in premium trains benefited Railways?
We will have to re-examine if it has benefited or not. I have told the railway board that it should be on an experimental basis. And now I will ask the CRB (Chairman Railway Board) to re-examine it.
Finance Minister talked about competitive fare pricing in the Budget. How is it going to help?
Keeping in mind competition and new possibilities, we need to have dynamic fare and that too in all categories whether premium or sleeper class.
What steps have been taken to enhance passenger safety?
We are planning to rope in international experts to ensure that `1 lakh crore safety funds are utilised properly. I have already written to the railway board asking them to ensure that the steps are result oriented.
What is in store for passengers in the future?
We are thinking of taking railways to bordering areas such as Twang not only for strategic purpose but also to connect far flung communities. We are also thinking of connecting islands and survey work has started for the Chardham rail connectivity which is one of the most difficult networks.
Why was Railway revenue earnings low in 2016-17?
There is a drop in coal loading and 50 per cent of our total freight earning comes from coal. We hope to close the year in a better way.
What are your priority areas in Railways?
Cleanliness, improving train punctuality, safety on tracks, completion of track and electrification and dedicate freight corridor. I want to complete all this for providing better services.

huge slack added en route.Can be easily reduced.Needs to be ensured that the train does only an overnight journey and reaches key NFR destinations by next morning.KIR,NJP,NCB arrivals should be 5.00AM,8.00AM AND 10.00AM respectively.Same has to be the case with 12424 Raj by restoring 2.00pm departure from NDLS

True,SER could have easily tapped Agartala,Silchar and Naharlagun setions and run passenger services.Santragachhi-Naharlagun/Dekargaon,Santrag achhi/Howrah-Agartala/Silchar would have helped them earn huge and tap these new sectors.

When i was passing through yard as usual as it is near to my house i could not stop myself from laughing seeing Lhb @maintainence,Being living away from bhagalpur i have travelled in many lhb trains this was first instance that still no train orignates from bhagalpur with lhb coaches but they were maintaining it in yard such has been ER priority for A1 station of ER after howrah and sealdah,Five coaches are lying in yard since last 4 and half months butone of them are taking maintaince without its run but still a full rack has not been alloted by ER,IR must not be run as political machinery but as per revenue they get the services must be prioritsed to those station,Bhagalpur is lacking behind in many facilites being A1 station where as other A1 station in bihar has taken lead like muzzaffarpur and darbanga.

When the Azimganj-Jiaganj rail link gets established after the approach link construction gets completed.Bhagalpur-Sahebganj section will get good SF Delhi bound train from SDAH/KOAA Via Nahati,Krishnanagar City Jn,behrampore Court.A Bi weekly Humsafar from NJP to NDLS could have been given via MLDT,BGP,Jamalpur,Kiul which would have helped these areas to get good Raj type SF train to Delhi

Humsafar ka NCB,NOQ stoppage na dena bahut badi galti hain.APDJ div me stoppage hona chahiye.Itne sare log jaate hain education,job ,treatment ke liye.Train nahi mil pata.Aur agar train NFR ke target audience ke liye hain to kui nahi milega stoppage.Offlate Suvidha,Tripura Sundari ko bho stoppage nahi diya NCB mein?

Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu Prabhu, accompanied by Railway Board chairman A.K. Mittal and other senior officials, visited the accident site on Sunday and later called on injured passengers at the Rayagada District Hospital. Promising stringent action against those responsible for the derailment, Mr. Prabhu announced an ex gratia of Rs. 2 lakh to the next of kin of the 39 victims, Rs. 50,000 for the severely injured and Rs. 25,000 to those with simple injuries.
While the government of Odisha also announced an ex gratia of Rs. 5 lakh for the next of kin, Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu announced Rs. 5 lakh ex gratia for victims from Andhra Pradesh. Thirty-one of the victims are from Odisha, eight are from Andhra Pradesh.
bodies of the victims have been sent to Parvathipuram and Rayagada for post-mortem and will be handed over to kin on Monday. “We have informed most of the family members. Around 13 bodies are yet to be identified,” a Railway official said.
Divisional Railway Manager Chandralekha Mukherjee, reached the spot in a special relief train around 2 a.m. on Sunday. “This is the first time in my two decades of experience that I am seeing such badly broken rails. Though it appears to be rail fracture, the possibility of sabotage cannot be ruled out and we shall have an independent and impartial inquiry,” Ms. Mukherjee told The Hindu.
