Members of the Tamil Nadu Association for Rights of the Differently-abled and Caregivers staged a protest in front of the railway junction here pressing for a charter of demands on Friday.
The association members demanded that the Centre should immediately pass the Rights of Persons with Disability Bill.
The present legislation, Persons with Disability Act, dealt with people who had seven types of disabilities, while there were lot more types of disabilities that were affecting the normal life of the people, said its president, T. Kumaravel. The United Nations convention in 2007 had

mandated the changes in legislation to provide rights to the disabled people, he said.
The bill was sent to the Standing Committee of the Parliament in 2014, and it has given its approval for the new legislation.
Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, who had promised to enact the new law to protect the rights of the differently-abled people in the run up to the 2014 Lok Sabha election, should fulfil the promise, he said.
Former Communist Party of India (Marxist) MLA, R. Annadurai addressed the protestors.

Railways has now agreed to allow the crossover works charging about Rs. 1 crore a bridge
Months after huffing and puffing and also sounding the powers that be seeking permissions, Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) authorities finally managed to secure clearances from the Postal Department and also the South Central Railway (SCR) to take up pending works of crossing over the railway lines in different places.
Overhead metro viaduct construction was held up for more than a year near the Begumpet Railway Station as the Postal Department did not allow the work to proceed

atop. The post office is on a 400 sq.yards land handed over on lease by the Government and after the department demanded Rs 3 crore as compensation, HMR sought just the fourth floor to take its line forward.
Finally, it was resolved after the HMR agreed to fund the construction of a new post office at Vikarabad at a cost of about Rs.50 lakh, according to Metro Rail officials. Work on demolishing the top portion of the post office began last week.
Over railway tracks
Similarly, viaduct work on crossing over the railway lines was held up for quite some time because of the railway authorities insisting on high traffic block fees of about Rs.100 crore at six different locations to halt trains for a few hours at specified timings when the metro viaduct is built to crossover the railway lines.
Minister for Municipal Administration K.T. Rama Rao had to seek Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu’s help because two railway crossovers at Bharatnagar (Corridor one — Miyapur to L.B. Nagar) and Chilkalguda (Corridor three — Nagole to Hi-Tec city/Raidurg) were done without such fees on the latter’s initiative.
Crossover works
The railways has now agreed to allow the crossover works charging about Rs. 1 crore a bridge, according to Managing Director of HMR N.V.S. Reddy.
“Trains will be stopped for one to one-and-half hours between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. to allow construction of the metro viaduct,” he explained. Soon, rail over bridge works are to commence at Chilkalguda and Alugadda Bhavi (Corridor three) to begin with in the next few days while Oliphanta (also C-3), which will be having a pre-fab steel bridge, work would start after some time, he explained. Remaining ROBs are to be built at Bhoiguda, Begumpet and Lakidikapul.

A group of activists have sent a memorandum to the Union Government with 1.18 lakh signatures of people from Dharapuram, Vellakoil and Kangayam areas asking for full budgetary allocation to expeditiously complete Erode-Palani (via Dharapuram and Kangayam) new railway project.
Ashraf Ali, an activist who coordinated the campaign, told reporters here that the representation was to remind the Railway Ministry about the project, as a mere Rs. 85 crore got allocated for the project from 2005 against the total estimated outlay of nearly Rs. 500 crore.
Allocation

now, allocations were made in a piecemeal manner. About Rs. 2 crore was allotted for preliminary survey in 2005 Railway Budget,” he said.
According to the people in the belt, the Union Government has not been showing much interest in the project though its commissioning would not only improve trade but also tourism in the area.

Ministry says poor occupancy on weekdays cannot justify move
The Ministry of Defence has expressed concern that the steady withdrawal of the defence quota in trains was affecting the travel of troops on duty, posting and leave.
In a communication to the Ministry of Railways, it has been pointed out that there was a high demand for accommodation in trains during weekends and the logic of withdrawing the defence quota based on poor occupancy on weekdays was not appropriate. The Railway Board had written to all Chief Commercial Managers (CCM) to allot variable

quota to defence personnel on weekdays and weekends depending on the utilisation.
Defence sources said a few berths are allotted in sleeper class coaches of express trains for army personnel.
Though jawans are entitled to travel with their families in three-tier AC compartments, the quota is often released in the sleeper class. “The quota is made available only in select trains. Trains heading to the northeastern States, where there is a heavy deployment of armed forces, do not have any berths earmarked . In the Southern Railway, the CCM helps us access the emergency quota (EQ),” a defence officer said.
In 2015, the Railway Board authorised zonal railways to decide on earmarking the defence quota based on utilisation. It was decided that if the occupancy of the general quota was more than 90 per cent, no defence quota should be earmarked.
If the utilisation was less than that, the zonal railway could consider allocating berths for personnel without affecting the general quota. “There was a clause that the defence quota could be withdrawn completely if the usage was less than 10 per cent. During weekdays, the movement of defence personnel is less compared to weekends. Jawans serving in remote locations, particularly the north and northeastern States, get leave to visit their family once or twice in a year. It is only fair they be accommodated in trains on priority,” the officer added.

The Delhi Police Crime Branch has arrested five members of the alleged “Dhol Baaz” gang, which was notorious for stealing at the Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station by posing as passengers or auto drivers.
Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Yadav said “dalli” or “dhol” was the code used by the gang members for the master key used to open the locks of suitcases. In one such alleged theft in October, accused Mashkoor and Vicky Choudhary posed as travellers and approached a woman outside the station, who was looking for an auto-rickshaw.
Tricked
“They

told her that they would be going in the same direction as her, and it would be economical if the three of them shared an auto. After they sat inside the auto — the driver of which was Pramod, another gang member member — a fourth member of the gang boarded the auto,” said Mr. Yadav.
One of the accused then blocked the view of the woman, while others opened her bag and fled with cash and jewellery worth Rs.5 lakh.
While only two such cases have been reported, the police suspect that the gang operated on a daily basis.
Easy money
Interrogation of the accused revealed that they had resorted to stealing as they were unable to make ends meet and wanted to make a quick buck.

The weatherman has forecast moderate fog for Saturday
Over 200 flights and about 100 trains were affected after dense fog descended on the Capital early on Friday and visibility dipped below 50 metres.
Visibility dips
Visibility at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport started dipping from Thursday night itself, with general visibility going below 50 m at 9.30 p.m.
Cascading

effect
On Friday, two flights were diverted, seven cancelled and nearly 200 delayed as the worst phase of the dense fog was observed between 7 a.m. and 9.30 a.m., which is the rush hour at the airport. This resulted in a backlog of flights, with cascading effect throughout the morning.
Flight operations were carried out using CAT (Category) IIIB Instrument Landing System, which helps pilots land aircraft in poor visibility conditions.
Terminals crammed
Fliers had a tough time as bunching of flights during the rush hour meant that terminals were crammed. Domestic departure Terminal 1D, which has limited space, was particularly congested.
Train passengers had the worse experience, as many trains were either rescheduled and cancelled or running late by a few hours.
More than 80 trains arrived late in Delhi on Friday, as a result of which many departures were also delayed. Besides passengers left stranded at railway stations in Delhi, thousands were stuck in trains running late for hours.
The Northern Railway rescheduled 38 trains and cancelled eight. To clear the extra rush of passengers, the Northern Railway has started the operations of three special trains.
The Meteorological Department has forecast moderate fog for Saturday and shallow fog for the next few days.
Normal temperature
The maximum temperature on Friday was recorded at 24.6 degree Celsius, while the minimum temperature was 11.5 degree Celsius, both of which are normal temperature for this time of the year.
