विद्युतीकरण के बाद अब लोको शेड की बारी
जागरण संवाददाता, गोरखपुर : पूवरेत्तर रेलवे के मेन रेल लाइन पर इलेक्टिफिकेशन अंतिम चरण में है। अब इलेक्टिक लोको शेड की बारी है। फिलहाल, रेल प्रशासन के बजट प्रस्ताव ने गोरखपुर में इलेक्टिक लोको शेड निर्माण की आस को एकबार फिर हवा दे दी है। हालांकि, शेड की नींव वर्ष 2007-08 में ही पड़ गई थी। एयरफोर्स स्टेशन के पास 12 एकड़ भूमि भी अधिग्रहित कर ली गई। लेकिन, बजट के अभाव में यह शेड हाथी दांत साबित हो रहा है। ऐसे में जब विद्युतीकरण अंतिम चरण में है, यह शेड आने वाले दिनों में मील का पत्थर साबित होगा। 1 पैच डबलिंग शुरू होने के साथ ही वर्ष 2007- 08 में तत्कालीन रेलमंत्री

लालू प्रसाद यादव ने बाराबंकी से छपरा तक रेल लाइन के विद्युतीकरण की घोषणा की। इसके साथ ही उन्होंने गोंडा डीजल शेड की तर्ज पर गोरखपुर में इलेक्टिक लोको शेड (कारखाना) के निर्माण का भी ऐलान किया। रेलवे बोर्ड ने भी गंभीरता से लेते हुए पूवरेत्तर रेलवे प्रशासन को प्रस्ताव बनाकर भेजने का निर्देश जारी कर दिया। प्रस्ताव पर बोर्ड ने भूमि अधिग्रहण के लिए फरमान जारी कर दिया। आनन-फानन एयरफोर्स के पास भूमि का सीमांकन कार्य शुरू हो गया। हालांकि, इस कार्य को पूरा करने में रेलवे प्रशासन को कड़ी मशक्कत करनी पड़ी। भूमि अधिग्रहण के बाद व्यवस्था भी बदल गई। इसके साथ ही इस महत्वाकांक्षी योजना की रफ्तार भी धीमी पड़ गई। स्थिति यह है कि इलेक्टिफिकेशन का कार्य अंतिम चरण में है पर, शेड निर्माण फाइलों में धूल फांक रहा है। विभागीय सूत्रों के अनुसार रेलवे बोर्ड लगभग हर साल पूवरेत्तर रेलवे प्रशासन से प्रस्ताव मांगता है। यहां से रिपोर्ट भी जाती है, लेकिन ढाक के वही तीन पात। इसबार महाप्रबंधक राजीव मिश्र के निर्देशन में रेल प्रशासन ने रेल बजट में ही इसका प्रस्ताव भेज दिया है, ऐसे में निर्माण की आस बंध गई है। 1

गोरखपपुर गोंडा रूट पर बढ़ेगा दबाव 1गोरखपुर-गोंडा लाइन पर विद्युतीकरण पूरा होते ही नए वित्तीय वर्ष मई-जून से ही पूवरेत्तर रेलवे के मेन रेल लाइन पर इलेक्टिक ट्रेन दौड़ने लगेंगी। ऐसे में इलेक्टिक इंजनों को लोको शेड की जरूरत पड़ेगी। गोरखपुर में शेड नहीं बना तो इंजनों को मेंटिनेंस के लिए कानपुर और बरौनी भेजना पड़ेगा। यही नहीं आने वाले दिनों में अन्य रेल खंडों पर भी इलेक्टिफिकेशन होना है। ऐसे में इलेक्टिक इंजनों की संख्या बढ़ेगी तो दबाव भी बढ़ेगा। गोरखपुर-छपरा रूट पर इलेक्टिक ट्रेन के रूप में मौर्य एक्सप्रेस चलती है। 22 नवंबर को रेलमंत्री सुरेश प्रभाकर प्रभु ने हरी झंडी दिखाकर उद्घाटन किया था।

New Delhi, Feb 13: Doing away with past practices, railways has made e-auction mandatory for scrap auction as part of the Digital India initiative even as it made over Rs 3,000 crore from such sales in last fiscal. ”We have switched over to 100 per cent e-auction for sale of scrap. The e-auction has fetched above Rs 3,000 crore revenue in 2014-15,” said a senior Railway Ministry official. E-auction has enabled prospective scrap purchasers to bid simultaneously on an all-India basis with digital e-payment facility. Before making the e-auction mandatory, a pilot project was commissioned by the Southern Railway to sell scrap via online process. ”Some lacunae were found in the e-auction which were addressed before opting for full-fledged e-auction,” said the official. Railways sells thousands of tonnes of scrap, including about 15,000 wagons, 1,200 coaches, 80 to 100 locomotives, every year through public auction.

practice was to sell scrap in open auction in the presence of concerned officials but the role of the mafia could not be ruled out. “After the introduction of e-auction not only the role of the mafia was eliminated but it has also brought complete transparency in the entire scrap trade,” said the official. Encouraged by the response, e-auction is now proposed to be used for leasing of parcels and other commercials contracts also. Railways has also started paperless settlement of tenders by enlarging the scope of e-procurement. As per the new policy, now any procurement above Rs one lakh will be carried through e-procurement system.

Lucknow: A lot rides on this project, literally and metaphorically, as chief minister Akhilesh Yadav bids for yet another term in office, for which he needs to win the Assembly elections less than a year from now.The Lucknow Metro project, work on which is visible on ground and already has people talking, just got a fresh gush of fuel - Rs 814 crore from the state Budget presented on Friday - to drive it faster towards completion. This is almost double the amount allocated in last year's Budget for the project.

eight-km priority section of the Metro has been given a deadline of December this year.
Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) officials revealed that the fund would be used to extend the north-south corridor by at least 700 m and "provide a complete look" to the stretch connecting Amausi airport with Charbagh railway station.
"The money will be largely used to construct a 774-metre ramp between Charbagh and Hussainganj. The funds will also speed up laying of tracks, construction of the depot, beautification of the area and plan further development," said an LMRC official.
Once the ramp is connected, the deck would be clear for construction of the Metro rail up to Secretariat and Hazratganj. The section will further pave way for laying tracks towards KD Singh Babu Stadium, which will link the Metro to Munshipulia.
Officials said the aim is to get at least one section of the metro rail functional before the election. Hence, the overall 22.8 km of priority section will materialise soon. Following this, car-coaches, their colour and name would be finalized," officials said.

Noida: The Noida district administration has lined up prepaid auto services to prevent overcharging, refusal and harassment by auto drivers. These are recurring problems faced by commuters. The first of these auto booths will come up at the Botanical Garden and Wave City Centre Metro stations.
Noida SP (City) Dinesh Yadav said the plan was to start prepaid auto services outside all Metro stations. "We are in talks with the district administration and transport department. The initiative will check auto drivers from charging above meter rates," he said.
Officials said the initiative would

mean all auto drivers would be registered at the prepaid booths, making it possible for swift action to be taken against them in the event of complaints.
Commuters will get a receipt at the time of booking with the details of the auto which they would have to return to the auto driver at the end of a hassle-free journey. The commuters can complain to police officers using the details on booking.
Cops are also planning to make a database with the details of drivers and owners of all the autos in Noida. There are more than 9,000 autos in Noida, all of which will be coded with a unique number with which the details will be linked.
More than 3000 autos in Greater Noida have already been assigned such unique numbers by the Active Citizen Team (ACT), a residents' group in Greater Noida, with the support of the police department. Such coding will facilitate tracing of an auto whenever necessary, officials said.Shravan Jain, BTech 4th year student of GL Bajaj Institute of Technology & Management, recently developed a mobile app based on this database.
A private engineering college student, Shravan Jain, had recently developed a mobile application based on this database. The mobile application will display details of auto drivers and owners upon entering the unique code number. The details can be forwarded to the police control room to alert cops in case of an emergency. Shravan, a fourth year student of BTech (information technology) at GL Bajaj Institute of Technology and Management, Greater Noida, said in case of any misbehaviour by auto drivers, users can enter the unique auto number and get complete details about the auto driver and its owner.Rajiv Agarwal, director of GL Bajaj Institute of Technology and Management, said the application was ready but has not been made online yet. "We discussed the application with the Active Citizen Team. We are ready to hand over the rights of the application to the city police and district administration," he said.
SP (City) Yadav said he would contact the ACT for their suggestions. "We will also contact the college whose student developed the mobile app," he said.
