रेल राज्‍य मंत्री श्री मनोज सिन्‍हा ने आज यह जानकारी राज्‍यसभा में एक प्रश्‍न के लिखित उत्‍तर में दी।
  
रेल मंत्रालय ने टिकटों (आरक्षित एवं अनारक्षित) को जारी करने की सुविधाओं में इज़ाफा करने के लिए यात्री टिकट सुविधा केन्द्रों (वाईटीएसके) पर कम्प्यूटरीकृत यात्री आरक्षण प्रणाली सह अनारक्षित टिकट प्रणाली टर्मिनल्स की स्थापना एवं संचालन के मद्देनज़र इस क्षेत्र में सरकारी सार्वजनिक सहभागिता-पीपीपी को अनुमति देने का निर्णय किया है। इस योजना के अनुसार वे सभी टिकटिंग एजेंट जिन्होंने पिछले कम से कम पांच वर्षों में रेल टिकट (आरक्षित एवं अनारक्षित) उपलब्ध कराने में भारतीय रेल यात्रियों की मदद की है, वाईटीएसके के लाइसेंस धारक बन सकते हैं। इन वाईटीएसके काउंटरों पर जनरल और तत्काल बुकिंग, पर्याप्त वित्तीय सुरक्षा, रियायती टिकटों की बुकिंग को अनुमति नहीं (वरिष्ठ नागरिकों को छोडकर), सामूहिक टिकटों की बुकिंग नहीं और टिकटों को रद्द करने में प्रतिबंध आदि के लिए कई उपाए किए गए हैं। चूंकि टिकटों की बुकिंग पर रेलवे पर पूरा नियंत्रण हैं अतः किसी भी तरह की गलत प्रक्रिया का पता...

यह सूचना आज राज्यसभा में एक प्रश्न के लिखित उत्तर में रेल राज्य मंत्री श्री मनोज सिन्हा ने दी।
  
भारतीय रेल ने रेल यात्रियों की सुरक्षा के लिए कई कदम उठाएं हैं। पूरे देश में रेल यात्रियों की सुरक्षा के लिए रेलवे बोर्ड में 24 घंटे की अवधि वाली एक सुरक्षा हेल्पलाईन 1800-111-322 शुरू की जा चुकी है। यह हेल्पलाईन रेल यात्रियों को किसी भी तरह की आकस्मिक स्थितियों के मद्देनजर शिकायत दर्ज कराने में मददगार हैं।
रेलवे सुरक्षा बल कुछ जोखिम वाले और चिह्नित मार्गों पर प्रत्येक दिन 1300 रेल गाड़ियों को सुरक्षा प्रदान करता है। इसके अलावा 2200 रेल गाड़ियों की सुरक्षा विभिन्न राज्यों की सरकारी रेलवे पुलिस करती हैं। बड़े-बड़े महानगरों में सभी महिला विशेष रेलगाड़ियों की सुरक्षा आरपीएफ की महिला कॉन्स्टेबल करती है ताकि महिला यात्रियों की सुरक्षा सुनिश्चित की जा सके।

रेल राज्यमंत्री श्री मनोज सिन्हा ने आज यह जानकारी राज्यसभा में एक लिखित प्रश्न के उत्तर में दी।

An author, yet again, at the age of 91 VIVEK NARAYANAN
THE HINDU S. Venkatraman travelled across the country over the past two years to collect material and photographs for his book and literature authors and poets After his first train ride in the 1920s, Venkatraman went on to work with the Railways and has now authored his second book on the Indian rail network
In the late 1920s, five-year-old S. Venkatraman boarded a train for the first time from Madras to Vijayawada, along with his father. He was smitten.
In 1942, he joined the Railways. As a culmination of his love for trains, 91-year-old Venkatraman travelled across the country and has come out with a book on the Indian Railways.

Indian Railways – The Beginning up to 1900 is a reminder of the glorious past of the world’s largest rail network.
The book comprises 534 pages and 600 pictures, including some rare ones in black-and-white.
But launching the book was not an easy task for this retired railway employee.
Over the past two years, he has travelled to Assam, West Bengal, Odisha, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh to collect details and take pictures of railways stations and trains.
“I also went to Bombay from where the first train chugged out. I travelled on nearly 350 trains and spent many lakhs compiling the book,” he says.
Mr. Venkatraman joined the Railways as a materials manager (stores) in Hubli and retired in 1982.
“I began writing the book more than three decades after retiring. My wife Lalitha, who was a lecturer of political science at Banaras Hindu University, was my inspiration. She passed away four years ago,” he says.
His first book Indian Railways at a Glance was a success. “The British had a separate coach for women, refreshment bars in stations and compartments with seating capacity of 200, way back in the 1880s. There were no toilets in trains then,” says Mr. Venkatraman, who feels that privatisation is the only way ahead for the Railways.
He says he is bringing out books on Railways out of sheer interest and not for profit. “My book should be a wake-up call to the railway administration that is now facing infrastructural deficiencies,” says Mr. Venkatraman, a member of the Indian Railway Fan Club.
He feels his efforts will be rewarded when more youngsters, especially in the Railways, learn about the heritage of our trains.

Come Saturday, Meghalaya will be on rail map IANS  |  Shillong  November 28, 2014 Last Updated at 18:36 IST Add to My Page
PM to inaugurate Meghalaya's first train on Nov 29 Bijay K. Marak, the first train driver among Garo tribesmen, will be a happy man Saturday when Prime Minister Narendra Modi flags off the first passenger train between Assam's Guwahati and Meghalaya's Garo Hills.
"I am content that the first train is scheduled to chug to Meghalaya on Saturday and the state will now be connected to the national railway grid," Marak, who drives different kinds of locomotives, told IANS over phone from Guwahati.
"The train service will not improve the road connectivity but will bring rapid socio-economic development to the

people of Garo Hills," said Marak, who started his first journey as a train driver in 1995.
In fact, Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma said: "This railway service would bring great economic changes for the state as it was one of the crucial projects that the state requested from the central government."
Modi will flag-off the new line to Mendipathar in Meghalaya's North Garo Hills from Maligaon in Guwahati in the presence of Sangma and other ministers. He will later address the people of Garo Hills through video conferencing.
The distance between the two stations is 131 km and a passenger train would now run daily between Mendhipathar and Guwahati via Dudhnoi in Assam's Goalpara district.
Meghalaya is a landlocked state and is dependent on land transport. Due to this, prices of most items are comparatively higher than in most other parts of the country.
The railways had planned to chug the first train into Mendipathar April 1, but abandoned the plan due to the model code of conduct duing the parliament elections.
However, the Modi government in its first railway budget announced the first passenger train between Guwahati and Mendipathar in Meghalaya's North Garo Hills region.
The project was approved in 1992-93, but faced hurdles during its initial days due to opposition from the local population.
Although this is the first time a train would chug into Meghalaya after it attained statehood in 1972, the region is one of the first places in India to have the railways.
In 1895-96, the British provincial government of united Assam built the Cherra Companyganj State Railways which was one of the first railway projects of that era.
It was a contemporary of the Darjeeling Himalayan Railways or "Toy Train" now listed as a World heritage.
Railways have been opposed in Meghalaya by the influential Khasi Students' Union, claiming it would encourage influx. Projects like the Byrnihat-Shillong project, which is slated to be completed by 2018, thus stand threatened.
Chief Minister Sangma said Meghalaya had missed many opportunities in bringing the railways in the past.
"We have to open up and also change our mindset," he said referring to the opposition against the railways from some groups in Meghalaya.
He said the railways would change the socio-economic landscape of the state and would benefit everyone by providing employment to the youth and giving better markets to farmers.
Sangma said the facility will generate new hope for the people. "People should not have the perception of alienation and all fear of the people should be allayed."
