ரயிலில் ஊருக்கு போக இனி 120 நாளுக்கு முன் ரிசர்வேசன் – பெண்களுக்கு படுக்கை வசதி அதிகரிப்பு Posted by: Mayura Akilan Published: Thursday, March 26, 2015, 18:05 [IST]
சென்னை: ரயில் பயணம் செய்பவர்கள் இனி நான்கு மாதங்களுக்கு முன்னதாகவே முன்பதிவு செய்துகொள்ளலாம் என்று ரயில்வே துறை கூறியுள்ளது. இந்த நடைமுறை வரும் ஏப்ரல் 1ஆம் தேதி முதல் செயல்படுத்தப்படவுள்ளது. ரயில் முன் பதிவை 60 நாட்கள் என்பதிலிருந்து 120 நாட்கள் என்று அதிகரித்திருப்பதன் மூலம் இடைத்தரகர்களின் மோசடியைக் குறைக்க முடியும் என்று அரசு கருதுகிறது. எனவே பட்ஜெட்டில் இதுதொடர்பாக அறிவிப்பு வெளியானது. அதைத் தொடர்ந்து இந்த மாத இறுதிக்குள் ரயில் பயணச்சீட்டு தொடர்பான மென்பொருளில் சில மாற்றங்கள் கொண்டு வரும் பணிகள் நிறைவடையும் என்று ரயில்வே உயர் அதிகாரி ஒருவர் தெரிவித்தார்.
நல்லதா கெட்டதா? இடைத்தரகர்களின் மோசடியைத் தவிர்ப்பதற்காக இந்தத் திட்டம் அறிமுகப்படுத்தப்படுகிறது என்று அரசு கூறினாலும், இன்னொரு பக்கம், 120 நாட்களுக்கு முன்னரே முன்பதிவு செய்யும்போது, அவற்றில் நிறைய பயணச்சீட்டுகள் ரத்து செய்யப்படும் வாய்ப்புகள் இருக்கின்றன. அவ்வாறு ரத்து செய்யப்படும்போது, அதன் மூலம் ரயில்வேக்கு அதிகளவு லாபம் கிடைக்கும் என்ற விமர்சனமும் வைக்கப்படுகிறது. இந்தத் திட்டம் இரண்டு ஆண்டுகளுக்கு

முன்பு அறிமுகப்படுத்தப்பட்டது. ஆனால் அப்போது இதனால் எந்த மாற்றங்களும் ஏற்படவில்லை என்பதால், அது கைவிடப்பட்டது. எனினும் வெளிநாட்டுப் பயணிகள் 360 நாட்களுக்கு முன்பே முன்பதிவு செய்யவேண்டும் என்பதில் எந்த மாற்றமும் இல்லை என்று தெரிவிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. படுக்கை வசதி அதிகரிப்பு ரயில்களில் தனியாக பயணம் செய்யும் 45 வயதுக்கு மேற்பட்ட பெண்கள், கர்ப்பிணிகள் மற்றும் மூத்தக் குடிமக்களுக்கு ரயில்களில் கீழ்ப் படுக்கை ஒதுக்கும் வசதி இரண்டில் இருந்து நான்காக அதிகரிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. இதுகுறித்து மத்திய அரசு வெளியிட்ட செய்திக் குறிப்பில், 'மூத்தக் குடிமக்கள், 45 வயதிற்கு மேற்பட்ட பெண்கள் மற்றும் கர்ப்பிணி பெண்கள் ரயில்களில் தனியாக பயணம் செய்தால் கணினி மூலம் ரயில் டிக்கெட் முன்பதிவு செய்யும் போதே அவர்களுக்கு கீழ்ப் படுக்கை (லோயர் பெர்த்) தானாகவே ஒதுக்கப்படும் வசதி உள்ளது. இதன்படி, ஒரு பெட்டிக்கு இரண்டு படுக்கைகள் ஒதுக்கப்பட்டுள்ளன. இனிமேல், இப்படுக்கையின் எண்ணிக்கை நான்காக அதிகரிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. கர்ப்பிணிகள், மூத்த குடிமக்கள் மேலும், ரயில்களில் மாற்றுத் திறனாளிகள், மூத்தக் குடிமக்கள் மற்றும் கர்ப்பிணி பெண்கள் பயண டிக்கெட் முன்பதிவு செய்யும் போது அவர்களுக்கு நடு (மிடில்) அல்லது மேல் (அப்பர் பெர்த்) படுக்கை ஒதுக்கப்பட்டால், டிக்கெட் பரிசோதகரே முதலில் வருபவர்களுக்கு முன்னுரிமை என்ற அடிப்படையில் அவர்களுக்கு கீழ்ப் படுக்கையை ஒதுக்கித் தர அதிகாரம் வழங்கப்பட்டுள்ளது என்று தெரிவிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.
English summary The Indian Railways has decided to increase the Advance Reservation Period for booking of tickets in trains from the existing 60 days to 120 days. However, there will be no change in case of certain day time Express trains like Taj Express, Gomti Express and other special trains.

Bullet trains would transform India - just give it 50 years India's antiquated rail network is earmarked for an overhaul - but what would travellers lose and gain if high-speed trains were to reach the subcontinent?
India’s train system is a remarkable piece of engineering: some 71,000 physical miles of track, 41,000 miles of network and 7,172 stations – a colossus which carries 23 million passengers each day and 8.4 billion every year 
A few months ago, I stood on the platform in Shin-Omuta station – which serves the small city of Omuta, on the south-westerly Japanese island of Kyushu. I had just stepped off a "slow" commuter service, and wasn’t entirely paying attention to my surroundings – so that when the bullet train from Fukuoka to Kagoshima came racing through at
...
Read more...
160 miles per hour, I was almost knocked off my feet. There is something about the sight of a shinkansen in full flow which still speaks of the future – even though Japan’s ground-breaking take on rail travel first blazed across Honshu in 1964. It is the roar of wind as it dashes past you, its split-second presence (the top operating speed for a bullet train is 200mph), which still seems like a vision from a science-fiction movie. It is something which can only be appreciated from a trackside spot – a journey on the train itself is so swift that the pace of it is lost in a blur of motion.
I was brought back to this random encounter in a distant corner of the Far East – I’m sure my reaction was something akin to the astonishment of farmworkers on glimpsing George Stephenson’s Rocket in 1829 – by reports that India is toying with constructing a bullet-train network of its own. In theory, this is a glorious idea. India, after all, is the world’s seventh largest country, and its second most populous, home to a head-count of 1.2 billion people. It is a place where a revolution in internal transport would make a big difference. It is also one of the globe’s most booming economies. Where is the downside? And the fact that, for now, any thought of India forging a rail system to rival those in France, Japan and China is partly based on the sparkling promises of the current Prime Minister. Narendra Modi was elected by a landslide last May having talked a fine game about creating a modern country in keeping with its size and ambition. One of the offered innovations was a total restructuring of the rail network. “Why do our railway stations need to be so old?,” he asked during a triumphalist speech last July. “Why can’t they be better than our airports?” Why indeed? But having attained the top job, Modi has been, to an extent, inching back from his grand pronouncements. Earlier this month, his Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu suggested that each kilometre of the necessary high-speed track would cost around £14 million – a sum that smacked of reality being introduced to a blueprint made of stardust.
Nonetheless, India is gently shuffling towards a radical rail overhaul. A feasibility study (involving Japanese expertise) is underway. And while a series of what Modi has referred to as "Diamond Quadrilateral" lines would take decades to complete, there are plans for a halfway-house "semi-high-speed" service which would be a huge improvement on the status quo. Last July, an experimental version of this compromise covered the 140 miles between New Delhi and Agra at 100mph. And there is tentative chatter about forging such a connection between Kolkata (Calcutta) and Delhi which would see trains manage the 923-mile odyssey in nine hours. The current time for this route, using the existing infrastructure, is closer to 36 hours. On average, Indian trains "move" at around 31mph.
And here is the nub of the problem. India’s train system is a remarkable piece of engineering: some 71,000 physical miles of track, 41,000 miles of network and 7,172 stations – a colossus which carries 23 million passengers each day and 8.4 billion every year. And all at soil-scraping prices which keep its carriages within financial reach of much of the population. It is India’s veins, arteries and capillaries – and many of its vital organs too. However, it is also enormously antiquated – a very literal legacy of the Raj era in that much of it was laid down while India was under British control. Only 6,000 of those 40,000 miles of network have been built since independence in 1947. The other 85 per cent of the system is rather older. The first train on Indian turf rolled between Bombay (Mumbai) and Thane – a 21-mile jaunt through (what is now the state of) Maharashtra – on April 16, 1853. By 1880, after a wave of Victorian enthusiasm and investment, 9,000 miles of track had been pinned into position. Bombay and Calcutta were linked in 1870. It would take a similar explosion of effort to convert what is a 19th century relic into a 21st century phenomenon. Would India lose some of its character as a result? Perhaps a little. The trundling, passenger-stuffed cavalcade of carriages is one of the most evocative images of travel in the sub-continent – a clanking process taking days over a journey that could be done in hours by plane. In many ways, its decrepit railway is a crucial part of India’s soul. Mahatma Gandhi made most of his tours of the country in the Twenties, Thirties and Forties – building momentum for his policy of non-violent resistance to its colonial masters – by rail. His final foray – his remains being transferred from New Delhi to Allahabad (in Uttar Pradesh), where his ashes were scattered in the confluence of the Ganges and Yamuna in the wake of his assassination in January 1948 – was also by train. Read more: Maharajas' Express, India - and the budget alternative That, at least, is the romantic view. A more pragmatic approach is that train travel in India is hot, stuffy and decidedly unreliable – even if, as a tourist, you have booked a berth in a first-class compartment. And it holds back a nation of high potential and huge resources. Its torturous wheel-dragging also ensures that it is only ever possible to see so much of India. Many roads are cluttered and impassable, the distances gargantuan. You can, of course, hop around by air. But that has its delays and its disadvantages – not least that, as you jump from one air-conditioned terminal to another, you lose sight of the destination.
