मुंबई Mumbai: Looking beyond traditional sources to raise money and bringing association of advertising-branding with metro projects much closer, Mumbai metro phase one project will be the second urban infrastructure project in the country to use station branding for non-fare box revenue collection. Expected to be soon operational, the phase one line of Mumbai Metro between Versova to Ghatkopar is currently e-auctioning naming rights for 12 of its stations.
Gurgaon Rapid Metro built by Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services (IL&FS) that started in November 2013 was the first metro project to auction naming rights for four of its station.
At a time when major cities in the country are building metro projects, station branding could fuel the non-tariff revenue generation. Most metro projects in the country are currently built by partnership of

state and central government with only few like Hyderabad Metro that have private players (Larsen and Toubro). In a country where populist compulsions demand lower fares, the non-fare box revenue generation becomes crucial for the success of any metro project.
The globally successful station branding strategy, however, has just taken off in the country and metro operators have kept the expectations low. For example, Mumbai Metro phase one project built at a cost of Rs 2,356 with a concession period of 35 years expects only about 5-10% of its revenue to come from non-fare box collection, out of which about 40% is expected to come from advertisements and station naming rights, said a spokesperson for Mumbai metro.
Following the global trend, the contracts are awarded for a minimum of five years which can be further extended by five years. Sources close to the bidding process said the rights were sold at about Rs 2-6 crore for each station for one year and the bidding has got a very good response so far. Under the station branding, the name of the private company will prefix the name of the station and the company would be awarded rights for 13 elements like key areas at the station, pamphlets and brochures, on the website and during announcements.
Similarly, Gurgaon Rapid Metro expects about 10-15% of its overall revenue to come from non-tariff avenues, about 50% of which comes from station branding. The contract period is about 3-5 years and players like Vodafone, Micromax, Airtel and Induslnd Bank have branded the four stations. In the coming years, non-fare box revenue is expected to jump to 30-40% as the ridership and network expands.
There are also players who refuse to toy with the idea. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation touted as most successful example of metro project in the country has abstained from using the concept. With an operational network of 189 km, its skepticism that has held DMRC back. The ‘excess presence’ of private players can undermine the brand of DMRC, said a senior official of DMRC on condition of anonymity. He further argued that the idea was discussed some time ago but was not thought to be viable, along with the proposal of advertising outside the metro coaches.
Despite abstention from station branding, DMRC earns about 65% of its revenue from non-operational activities like consultancy, retail, real estate , advertisements, bank deposits etc.
But the increased reliance on non-fare box revenue generation including station branding is not without its risks and there are precedents of failure too. Delhi Airport Expressline expected about 70% of its revenue to come from real estate and retail development, the expectation failed to materialise and Airport Expressline is currently a loss making entity with a monthly loss of about Rs 4 crore. R-Infra (private partner) exited the first urban infrastructure PPP project in the country citing breach of concessionaire by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation.
But as the engagement of private players in urban infrastructure increases, the pressure to break even at the earliest and churn profits will only increase the reliance on non-fare box revenues. For example, the upcoming 72 kilometer long Larsen &Toubro Metro Rail Hyderabad Limited project is based on a revenue model of 50% from passenger fares, 45% from property development and 5% from advertisement and other miscellaneous sources. No indication has been given that the project will use station branding.
Globally, governments and metro operators have made much more money through the concept of station branding. Dubai Metro was the first urban public infrastructure project in the world to raise money by selling station naming rights to private players. In the first round held in 2008, it raised about Rs 300 crore after selling station naming rights for 23 of its 47 stations. The model was soon followed by metros in cities like Chicago, Boston, Houston, London, Philadelphia, Montreal, Rio de Janeiro and Rapid Metro Project in Gurgaon.

संभल Sambhal:  If one were to arrive in Sambhal by train, it would seem a frontier town at the edge of the railway network and not in the middle of western Uttar Pradesh.
A train carries people to Moradabad and back once a day. There are no tracks beyond Sambhal. The counter looks unused, children use tracks to play and the station is a temporary shelter for the homeless and cattle.
While there is trepidation about a Narendra Modi-led government among most Muslims in western UP, in Sambhal, the railway station and other infrastructure matter more. They want more trains, better schools, a well-equipped hospital and tarred roads and a propere district headquarters.
“Sambhal once had many trains but now there is only one.

Total Shut Down of Passenger Reservation System (PRS) for undertaking System Modernization Works relating to Ticketing Data
The Computerised Passenger Reservation System (PRS) is being still more technologically upgraded for the purpose of archiving ticketing data. Towards the same, backup systems have been commissioned and are undergoing field trials. As a part of these trials, the o­nline testing of the systems will be undertaken o­n 20th April, 2014 between 11:30 hrs to 12:30 hrs and 15:00 hrs to 16:30 hrs.
The testing necessitates the total shut down of the PRS between 11:30 hrs to 12:30 hrs and 15:00 hrs to 16:30 hrs o­n 20th April, 2014. During this total shut down period, the following services will not be available.
...
Read more...
1)No ticketing through Reservation Counters o­n the entire South Central Railway (SCR) Zone.
2)No internet ticketing for trains originating o­n South Central Railway, Southern Railway and South Western Railway Zones. (However, o­nline ticketing will continue unhindered for trains originating o­n all other zones.)
3)No PNR and other related enquiries.
4)No refund of tickets through the PRS system. The refund will therefore be arranged manually across the counters.
5)No Current Day Booking (CDB) facility.
Inconvenience caused to the travelling public is deeply regretted.

राज्य ब्यूरो, नई दिल्ली : उत्तर रेलवे जहां ज्यादा से ज्यादा यात्रियों को उनके गंतव्य तक पहुंचाने के लिए नई व विशेष ट्रेनें चला रहा है। वहीं माल ढुलाई को भी बढ़ावा दे रहा है। इससे माल ढुलाई में रिकार्ड वृद्धि दर्ज की गई है। इस प्रयास से उत्तर रेलवे ने राजस्व उगाही में देश के अन्य रेल जोन को पीछे छोड़ दिया है। डीजल के दाम बढ़ने से सड़क मार्ग से माल ढुलाई काफी महंगा हो गया है। जिससे व्यापारी रेलवे से सामान ढुलाई को तरजीह देते हैं। यह सड़क मार्ग की तुलना में सस्ता होने के साथ सुरक्षित भी समझा जाता है। इसलिए उत्तर रेलवे के माल ढुलाई के आंकड़ों में वृद्धि हो रही है। वित्त वर्ष 2013-14 के आंकड़े इस वित्त वर्ष में उत्तर रेलवे में लगभग 53.25 मिलियन टन के रिकार्ड माल भाड़ा लदान हुआ। जो कि इससे पहले वाले वित्त वर्ष से 5 मिलियन टन...

ज्यादा है। माल ढुलाई में वृद्धि होने से 73 सौ करोड़ रुपये की आमदनी हुई, जो कि वित्त वर्ष 2012-13 की तुलना में लगभग एक हजार करोड़ रुपये अधिक है। इससे उत्तर रेलवे का कुल राजस्व 14,289 करोड़ रुपये से 16 फीसद बढ़कर लगभग 16 हजार करोड़ रुपये पहुंच गया है। 21 फीसद की वृद्धि हुई अधिकारियों का कहना है कि परिचालन व वहन क्षमता बेहतर होने से माल भाड़ा ढुलाई से प्राप्त होने वाले राजस्व में काफी वृद्धि हुई है। बेहतर प्रबंधन से खाद्यान्न, पेट्रोलियम पदार्थ, कंटनेर, सीमेंट और अन्य सामग्री के लदान के लिए जरूरी वैगन की उपलब्धता सुनिश्चित की गई। इस वित्त वर्ष में खाद्यान्न की ढुलाई में भी 21 फीसद की वृद्धि देखी गई है। -------------

लाइनपार क्षेत्र की करीब आठ लाख आबादी के लिए खुशखबरी है। रेलवे ने धोबी घाट पर रेलवे ओवर ब्रिज (आरओबी) को एजेंडे में शामिल कर लिया है। पूरा प्लान तैयार कर लिया गया है। अगली बोर्ड बैठक में धोबी घाट आरओबी का प्रस्ताव पास कराया जाएगा। यह जानकारी बृहस्पतिवार को उत्तर रेलवे के जीएम वीके गुप्ता ने 'दैनिक जागरण' संवाददाता से विशेष बातचीत में कही। उत्तर रेलवे के जीएम वीके गोयल ने बताया कि लोगों की परेशानी और डिमांड को देखते हुए धोबीघाट आरओबी के लिए पूरा प्लान तैयार करा लिया गया है। उन्होंने बताया कि अगली बोर्ड बैठक में प्रस्ताव को मंजूरी मिलने पर राज्य सरकार के बाद भेज दिया जाएगा। धोबीघाट आरओबी की राह में रेलवे के रोड़ा अटकाने के सवाल पर जीएम ने कहा कि हम तो चाहते हैं कि सभी रेलवे क्रॉसिंग्स पर आरओबी बनाए जाएं। हमे उत्तर रेलवे के क्षेत्र में आरओबी बनाए जाने से...

कोई आपत्ति नहीं। आरओबी से रेलवे की टेंशन कम होगी। उन्होंने बताया कि रेलवे को ओवरब्रिज की अनुमति देने में कोई आपत्ति नहीं। 12 बजे पहुंचे, 5.33 बजे पर निकल गए उत्तर रेलवे के जीएम वीके गुप्ता बृहस्पतिवार दोपहर 12 बजे स्पेशल रेल कार से गाजियाबाद स्टेशन पर पहुंचे। यहां से सीधे इलेक्ट्रिक यार्ड पहुंचे और निरीक्षण किया। इस दौरान उन्होंने पूजा अर्चना कर डंपर टेस्टिंग मशीन का उद्घाटन भी किया। इलेक्ट्रिक यार्ड में निरीक्षण के बाद जीएम सिग्नल कारखाने का भी निरीक्षण किया। इस दौरान उन्होंने अफसरों को जरूरी निर्देश दिए। उसके बाद शाम 5.33 बजे वह स्पेशल रेल कार से वापस दिल्ली के लिए लौट गए। इस दौरान मौके पर डीआरएम अनुराग सचान, डीटीएम डीके चोपड़ा, सीएमआइ राजकुमार और तमाम अधिकारी मौजूद थे।
--- -2015 में शुरू होगी मेरठ रूट पर ईएमयू : उत्तर रेलवे के जीएम वीके गुप्ता ने बताया कि मेरठ रूट पर ईएमयू ट्रेन संचालन के लिए काम जारी है। हालांकि उन्होंने मेरठ रूट पर इलेक्ट्रिक लाइन का काम इलाहाबाद काम रीजनल इलेक्ट्रिक डिवीजन द्वारा किए जाने की बात कही। काम की लगातार मॉनिटरिंग की जा रही है। नए साल 2015 में मेरठ रूट पर लोगों को ईएमयू का तोहफा हर हाल में दिया जाएगा।
-- - नए रूप में नजर आएगा गाजियाबाद जंक्शन : गाजियाबाद जंक्शन जल्द ही नए रूप में नजर आएगा। उत्तर रेलवे के जीएम ने बताया कि गाजियाबाद स्टेशन के रूपांतरण के लिए प्रस्ताव पास कर दिया गया है। जल्द ही यहां इलेक्ट्रिक सीढि़यां और कोच इंडीकेटर लगाए जाएंगे। जिससे लोगों को काफी राहत मिलेगी।
----------- - हालात बयां कर रहे थे बडे़ साहब आ रहे हैं : बृहस्पतिवार को रेलवे स्टेशन के हालात बयां कर रहे थे कि आज बडे़ साहब आ रहे हैं। अमूमन जगह-जगह गंदा दिखाई देने वाला स्टेशन बृहस्पतिवार को बिल्कुल चकाचक दिख रहा था। एंट्रेंस से लेकर प्लेटफार्म तक और ट्रैक कतई साफ दिख रहे थे। आमतौर पर गायब दिखने वाले आरपीएफ और जीआरपी के जवान भी सभी प्लेटफार्म पर अलर्ट थे।
------------ - भैंस देख भड़के जीएम : उत्तर रेलवे के जीएम बृहस्पतिवार को स्पेशल रेल कार से निरीक्षण के लिए गाजियाबाद स्टेशन आ रहे थे। इस दौरान गऊशाला फाटक के किनारे उन्होंने रेलवे की जमीन पर भैंसें बंधी देखी तो भड़क गए। इसके अलावा गाजियाबाद रेलवे स्टेशन पर दोनों तरफ अवैध कट देखकर भी जीएम गुस्सा गए। उन्होंने अफसरों को तत्काल व्यवस्था बनाने के निर्देश दिए।
---------- - स्पेशल रेल कार से बाल-बाल बचा युवक : बृहस्पतिवार को जीएम स्पेशल रेल कार से इलेक्ट्रिक यार्ड में जा रहे थे। इसी दौरान अवैध तरीके से ट्रैक पार समय रेल कार से सामने आ गया। गनीमत रही कि उस वक्त रेल कार की स्पीड काफी कम थी। जिसके चलते ड्राइवर ने रेल कार रोकी।
