NEW DELHI: Seventeen states have agreed to form joint ventures with the Railways to fast track infrastructure projects, the Lok Sabha was informed today.
Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu said by entering into a joint venture, the states will have ownership over projects and ensure that the infrastructure develops at a faster pace.
Responding to supplementary during Question Hour, he said a new scheme will be launched soon, under which people with waitlisted tickets will be able to get berths in other trains going to the same destination, in case it is not confirmed

on the train they had originally opted for.
Passengers with ordinary tickets will be able to travel on trains such as Rajdhani if their waitlisted ticket is not confirmed on other trains.
He said once approved by the Parliament Secretariat, MPs can book and cancel their tickets online using a unique identity.
Chintamani Malviya and Ravindra Ray (both BJP) told the Speaker that their questions on Railways were “twisted” and what has appeared in the question list is different from what they had originally asked.
Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said she would look into the matter.

Come April and passengers could avail the opportunity of travelling in Rajdhani or Shatabdi trains even if they have booked tickets for other mai or express trains for the same destinations.
The Railways is launching a new scheme from April 1 under which waitlisted passengers can get confirmed accommodation in the next alternative train if they opt for it at the time of booking. According to the scheme, `Vikalp', there will be no extra charge taken from the passenger or any refund provided for the fare difference.The scheme aims to utilise vacant berths in premier trains, including Rajdhani, Shatabdi, Duronto and other special service such as Suvidha trains, on major routes.

the scheme as a “passenger friendly“ move to provide confirmed accommodation to waitlisted passengers, a railway ministry official said, “We aim to achieve the twin objectives of providing confirmed accommodation to waitlisted passengers and ensure optimal utilisation of available accommodation by this scheme.“
Currently , the scheme is being run on six routes including Delhi-Lucknow, DelhiJammu and Delhi-Mumbai sectors on a pilot basis. The Railways foregoes about Rs 7,500 crore annually in cancellation refunds.

Mar 21 2017 (09:26)   Double-decker Coaches may be modified for Uday Trains

❤ WAP7 ❤~   937 news posts
Entry# 2204917   News Entry# 297029         Tags   Past Edits
NEW DELHI: There is a major change in plans for Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu’s UDAY brand of trains — the overnight air-conditioned double-decker trains that ply between major cities. Instead of building a new rake, the Railways now plans to modify existing double-decker coaches to make them suitable for overnight journeys. Speaking on the proposed development, the ministry’s spokesperson Anil Saxena confirmed the development. “The Uday trains are currently being modified to add new features. The first rake is expected by July 2017,” said Saxena.
A senior Rail Coach Factory, Kapurthala (RCF) official told that there is no plan to make manufacture an Uday train for the current financial year ending March 31. He, however, refused to comment on whether the modifications

to the air-conditioned, double-decker coaches would reduce its capacity. The existing AC double-decker coaches can accommodate 120 passengers.
A section of railway officials were always apprehensive about Prabhu’s Uday plan. Their main contention was that the three routes announced for the overnight Uday trains — between Bandra and Jamnagar, Vishakhapatnam and Vijayawada, and Coimbatore and Bengaluru — have above 10-hour journeys. The plan has tied the Railways’ design team in knots. Double-decker coaches at 4,366 mm are a full 325 mm (more than a foot) taller than conventional trains, which have a height of 4,039 mm.This makes operating a double-decker train difficult on most routes.
One of the solutions — to get the seats to incline to a semi-sleeper position like in international flights — could reduce the capacity of these double-decker coaches from the current 120 seats to anywhere between 75 to 90 seats. This would make running a conventional three AC coach, with 72 passengers each, a better option as far as operations and energy efficiency is concerned, officials said.

Russian Railways operates Double Decker sleeper train, Indian Railways should look towards that and follow that design. This Semi sleeper definitely wouldn't work.

Something drastic and very innovative design solutions are required for the AC DD coaches/trains being operated by IR to become successful.
Instead of current design, IR should look forward to the Double decker 300kmph trains being successfully operated by TGV Rly system. The bogie fitted at end of coaches in these trains-sets are highly suitable for DD coach construction. IR should try to go for DD coaches in a big way after it successfully start operating such kind of SHS train sets within a few years as per current plan. Till then it is better to keep introduction of new DD trains in the back burner, as they are most likely to be a failure today.

Mar 21 2017 (09:27)   Construction Work to connect Konkan Railway with Jaigarh Port to start from March 25

❤ WAP7 ❤~   937 news posts
Entry# 2205193   News Entry# 297030         Tags   Past Edits
In a big boost to the finances of Konkan Railway, the actual construction work for connecting Konkan Railway to the nearby port of Jaigarh will commence from Saturday, March 25. Union Minister for Transport and Ports Nitin Gadkari, along with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, will lay the foundation stone for the 33.7 km long rail connectivity project.
The project calls for building a rail line from Jaigarh Port to Digni near KR’s Ratnagiri station. The line will involve building six tunnels with a total length of 18.8 km. Speaking to media, Sanjay Gupta, the Managing Director of Konkan Railway Corporation Limited said that the project is worth Rs.800 crores. Girish Karandikar, senior PRO of KR, confirmed that work would commence from Saturday.

An official from Chief Minister’s office said that three hours have been reserved in the Chief Minister’s schedule for this program, since it is one of the important infrastructure projects that will boost income for the Konkan Railway and also indirectly help the state. An official said that it would be a big boost for Konkan Railway income since instead of bringing the goods, namely oil, iron ore or other goods by loading trucks, they can be easily brought to Konkan Railway with the help of 55-odd wagons directly from the port to Digni station.
As per current estimates, the rail line can handle as much as 12 million tonnes per annum of cargo from the port to KR. Jaigarh Port plans to increase its capacity to 65 million tonnes per annum by 2020.
The line could be a boon for KR which, despite being one of the busiest passenger sections in the country, could do with a rise in freight traffic on its line. KR had missed having Mangalore Port as one of its freight hubs when the boundaries of the then under-construction line was redrawn in 1994. With Mangalore Port going to Southern Railway (SR), KR was left with a predominance of passenger trains.
The Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) to execute the projects was incorporated as Jaigarh Digni Rail Limited on May 21, 2015, and the Memorandum of Understanding between this SPV and KR was signed on June 28, 2015, in the presence of CM Fadnavis and railway minister Suresh Prabhu

18.8kms of tunneling for 33.7km long line speaks great about toughness of terrain, hopefully a straighter alignment with high line capacity has been chosen for the route. But just 800 Crore Rs estimate appears too less for such terrain.
This rail connectivity shall be the the first major freight loading point and hence the financial backbone of Konkan Railway.
But the doubling of KR have to be speeded up so that freight trains originating from the Jaigarh port may get time slots in the super saturated KR. Till date doubling of only Roha-Veer

section (47kms) have been started which will take atleast 3-4 years to complete. However KR shall most probably be fulle electrified by the time the New line is constructed & commissioned.
