At 8 am, a train travelling towards Huda City Centre in Gurgaon from Samaypur Badli began registering “system errors” on its programming software, said Delhi Metro officials.
Thousands of commuters traveling towards Gurgaon were affected after a Metro train on the Yellow Line had to be vacated due to a technical snag and sent off to the depot. This is the second such incident in four days.

officials.
“As the train crossed Model Town Metro station, the operator received signal errors on his computer system. He tried troubleshooting it locally… the emergency brakes were falling into place because of the errors. This was causing a delay of a few minutes at every station,” said a DMRC spokesperson.
He added, “A technical team boarded the train further on but when the problem persisted, we decided to send the train off to the Khyber Pass depot. In order to avoid further impact on services due to the cascading effect of the delay, the passengers were deboarded at Rajiv Chowk station and the train was withdrawn from service. It was sent back to the depot for investigation. Train services on the line became operational from 9.10 am.”
The spokesperson said, “Metro trains are designed to be ‘fail-safe’ to ensure safety of passengers and brakes are applied automatically by the system when such errors occur.”
The delays and the evacuation of the train delayed other trains on the Yellow Line, by 15 minutes or more, affecting passengers headed towards Gurgaon for work.
Rochan Mathur, an intern with Promise Foundation, who was travelling from Vishwavidyalaya to MG Road Metro station in Gurgaon, was one of the passengers deboarded from the Metro train.
“The train was stopping for five minutes at every station after I boarded it. Eventually, at Chawri Bazar Metro station, the train operator announced that we will have to deboard the train at Rajiv Chowk Metro station because there was a technical snag,” said Mathur.
“When we reached Rajiv Chowk Metro station, security personnel boarded the train and asked everyone to get off. Only 60 per cent of the passengers got off.
The train travelled to Patel Chowk, the next station, with the remaining passengers. I was one of them. There, we were asked to deboard… ,” he said.
On Monday, services on the Blue Line of Delhi Metro were hit when a damage to the overhead electrical circuit caused bunching of trains and delays.

BHUBANESWAR: The National Human Right Commission (NHRC) on Thursday sought a report from Chairman of Railway Board over the pushing of a 15-year-old boy from a train by a TTE near Mancheswar Railway Station last Saturday.
Taking suo motu cognizance of media reports, the NHRC directed that the report be submitted within a week.
The rights panel observed that the gruesome incident is an 'inhuman act and deserves to be condemned'. Travelling without ticket is illegal but the TTE being a public servant is supposed to act in a responsible and lawful manner

since he is aware that pushing a passenger out of a running train may cause threat to his life. "The officers, while dealing with the public, are expected to conduct themselves in a humane and sensible manner," the panel said.
On June 25, the 15-year-old-boy P Krishna, who hails from Srikakulam in Andhra Pradesh and resides at Cuttack's Mahanadi Vihar, was found lying on the railway tracks near Padashi in Mancheswar. The victim had boarded the Chennai-Howrah Coromandel Express at Vizag.
The NHRC's Special Rapporteur Damodar Sarangi had drawn the attention of the rights panel stating that the minor boy had no money to buy a ticket. When he failed to show the ticket to the TTE, he demanded a bribe and searched his pockets. Finding no money in his pockets, the TTE allegedly abused and pushed him out of the running train.
Locals rescued him in a critical condition and informed Nandankanan police station in Bhubaneswar. The family members of the victim lodged a complaint with the Government Railway Police (GRP) which recorded the statement of the victim and questioned the three TTEs of the train.
The boy is under the custody of Bhubaneswar Childline and GRP.

NEW DELHI: Indian Railways is looking forward to monetize data information like passenger preferences, ticketing patterns and commodity flows by providing it to interested players and has constituted a committee to look into the possibilities at the earliest.

The committee will also into systems that can be created to charge for some of the free services provided by IR such as PNR enquiry, currently being commercially exploited by other players.

who have approached us for providing data related to passengers. A committee has been constituted to look into it in detail and also keeping in mind that no compromise to customer privacy is made,” said sources in the ministry.
Indian Railways has been looking at various non fare options to increase its earnings. A non fare revenue directorate has been created in the Railway Board with a mandate for enhancing revenues by 10 percent to 20 percent from non-tariff sources.
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu in the Rail Budget this year has announced that railways collects data pertaining to passenger preferences, ticketing patterns, commodity flows, train running and information on various services and operations.
Railways has huge data related to passenger travel preferences as it carries nearly 23 million passengers per day and this data can be analysed and used by various companies for increasing its outreach.
“As of now private websites and other players use our data free of cost and now we will put in place system checks that will ensure that they will have buy that data. So, it’s like no more free services and whoever wants should pay and use,” said sources. 
 The non-fare revenue directorate would look into areas like advertising at stations, commercial exploitation of vacant land and space rights over station buildings, advertising on coaches, monetization of soft assets, including generation of revenue from websites through advertisements, operation of pay and use toilets in land outside railway stations interactive services in railway premises and tourism.

Indian Railways, the world’s largest public sector enterprise in the area of rail transportation today laid the foundation stone for building an auto car loading facility at Farrukhnagar.
Union Railway Minister, Mr. Suresh Prabhu, who was the chief guest for the ceremony, joined through a video conference and set the foundation stone for this ambitious project. The facility will be built at Farrukhnagar, which is close to the Manesar plant of country’s top carmaker, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. (MSIL) and will aid in transporting the bulk of cars produced by the automobile manufacturer to their respective destinations across the country.

has two plants in the national capital region, with the first one being in Gurgaon, while the second unit being in Haryana’s Manesar. Currently, railways only have a standalone car loading bay at Gurgaon, which handles the traffic of both of Maruti’s plants.
Owing to railway’s limited space and capacity at the Gurgaon loading facility, it has only been able to tap a considerably low 40,000 units of vehicles to be shipped through its rail network, whereas Maruti’s major chunk of logistics of its total 15,00,000 annually produced cars is still relying on the road network of the country.
(Read – New Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire to be Made at Gujarat Plant)
Speaking at the foundation ceremony, Suresh Prabhu said, “In next two years, we would be able to transport 25 per cent of the Maruti’s production.”
The new loading facility at Farrukhnagar will help Railways to generate more business for its freight and cargo divisions and as a result, will lead to an improvement in its revenues. The facility will also give Maruti Suzuki a faster and reliable medium to ship its cars across the country, right from the vicinity of its stockyard.
