The work of laying a new railway track between Belagavi and Bagalkot has stopped for over week as the authorities have laid a track on a land not acquired for the project. The farmers on whose land the track has been laid have stopped the work demanding compensation.
In Kagalagomb village of Badami taluk, the land was acquired in survey No. 1621 to 5 for laying the track but the authorities have laid the track in the land coming under survey number 1676 forcing farmers to stop the work.
The railways has laid

the track in 1.7 acre of land belonging to Hanumanthgouda though they his one acre land in another survey number was acquired for the purpose.Similarly the mother of one Raju Mudigoudar of Kagalgomb village has lost one acre land as the railwyas has laid track in her land while his son's one acre land has been acquired by the authorities.“We had divided the land much before and there are separate RTCs for both our lands. Despite that the authorities have acquired my mother's land,'' Raju said.Kutbuddin Kazi, president, Karnataka Rajya Broad Gauge Horata Samiti blamed the revenue department officials for the confusion.
“It is the mistake of the land acquisition officers who gave railways the wrong survey numbers. Because of their mistake farmers are made to suffer“ he said.
The Bagalkot-Kudachi new railway line was proposed way back in 1911 but it got approval only during Mamata Banarjee`s tenure as railway minister.
The joint survey was conducted in 2011 and work began in 2013. Since then, 33 kilometers of new line has been laid covering the 23 villages in under Bagalkot district. However, the process of land acquisition in Belagavi district is yet to begin.

Railways looking at chef Sanjeev Kapoor to curate menu for Tejas express Redefining passengers' travel experience, Tejas coaches will be equipped with 22 new features Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi  January 1, 2017 Last Updated at 16:29 IST
Travel on Tejas trains to be costlier than Shatabdi Humsafar Express to be launched soon with higher fare structure ABB wins order to supply transformers to Indian Railways A year of safety lapses with introduction of new services in Railways 12 coaches of express train derail in Kerala; none injured The Indian Railways is looking to unveil new services in the new year as part of which passengers will be treated to cuisines curated by a celebrity chef coupled with ultra

modern facilities to make it a world class journey.
"Despite challenges, we undertook several initiatives in 2016 which will bear fruits later. In 2017, we are looking to progress on the many new initiatives we have launched," Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu has said.
"Recently we launched Hamsafar Express. Before that Mahamanya and Gatimaan Express were also launched. Tejas will be launched in 2017," Prabhu said.
Redefining passengers' travel experience, Tejas coaches will be equipped with 22 new features, including entertainment LCD screens for each passenger along with headphones sockets. The LCD screens will also be used for disseminating passenger-related information and safety instructions.
Quality catering service will be a part of Tejas fares like Rajdhani and Duronto trains and railways is considering an agreement with renowned chef Sanjeev Kapoor to finalise the menu shortly.
Railways has undertaken many steps in 2016 which are expected to bear fruit in 2017.
Giving an example, Prabhu said, "When you plant a seed, you do not see the tree for three years. But suddenly you see sprouts, then the tree comes out and it grows fast. Exactly that is going to happen in railways."
The Tejas train will be equipped with many modern facilities some of which are the first for Indian Railways. Besides, choicest cuisine and wi-fi facility, there will be toilet engagement boards on the train whose interior colour scheme will match the exterior to give Tejas passengers the feel of world class travel.
Prabhu said, "What we are doing today are all structural fundamental initiatives which will create infrastructure. We are
launching ERP which will create new efficiency standards, new opportunities in addition to the accounting reforms which we have started this year."
"2016 was a year of several initiatives and also consolidation and 2017 will be completion of so many initiatives we have started," he added.
Detailing the whole gamut of activities in the rail sector since he took over the reins, Prabhu said, "2015 was the beginning, 2016 was taking the next step. 2017 will be the year of consolidation and 2018 will be the year of seeing huge benefits, the real year when the benefits will start coming out.

even this Train with wi-fi, multi-cuisine option, LCD screens has to run on the same rusting tracks!!!
I think a big majority of passengers wont mind paying more for a safe on-time journey than for these so called benefits on board.
IRs motto should be safe ontime journey than these kind of gimmickry to squeeze the hapless passengers

Yes. Last year high profile designer Ritu Beri designed the uniform for employees, now a high profile chef. Must be costing a lot to IR to hire them. Just more unwanted expenditure.

just because of someone's weird ideas, IRs finances are going for a toss and we are ending up paying more by way of higher ticket fare.
Dont know when IR will realise their priorities are misplaced.

"Tickets under current booking shall be sold at the last price sold for that class and other supplementary charges like reservation fee, superfast charges, catering charges, service tax etc., as applicable shall be levied in full".

Today 12313 had no surge from dhn. The total fare from dhn to ndls is 1850 with a base fare of 1473. Today it had seats in current availability thus the ticket was discounted at 10℅ ( base fare) and total charge now is 1695 I.e 155 less. Your point that discount would be given on the last booking fare is justified here. See the screenshot

How safe is the chain Sanghamitra Express with Shaktipunj Express changing over at JBP, journey starting from SBC tomorrow? Sangha arrives @ JBP 18.20 and shaktipunj departs JBP @ 23.50.
Currently Sanghamitra pairing train is running late by more than 8 hours and tomorrow departure is rescheduled by about 2 hours 45 minutes.
Need suggestions to decide whether to book TQ ticket in Shaktipunj tomorrow
