In a further move to take the Indian Railways at an advanced level, Minister of Railways Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu in a programme held in Rail Bhawan today i.e. 08.12.2016 launched website of National Rail Plan, 2030. The website can be accessed at click here This dedicated website for National Rail Plan (NRP, 2030) has been developed for all stakeholders to give their inputs for purposeful study as Railways’ planning cannot be done in isolation. In order to provide long term perspective to planning for augmenting the railway network Ministry of Railways have decided to develop National Rail Plan (NRP 2030) in consultation with all the stakeholders including State Governments, public representatives and other relevant Central Ministries. NRP-2030 will endeavour to harmonise and integrate the rail network with other modes of transport and create synergy for achieving seamless multi modal transportation network across the country. This will also...

achieve the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s vision of integrated planning and cost optimization of the transportation network by laying the new railway lines and new highways together in tunnels and over mega-bridges.
Speaking on the occasion, Minister of Railways Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu said that Indian Railways needs to form a concrete plan about its doings in the coming 10-20 years. He said that after receiving ideas Railways will capture all the requirements from the different stakeholders. He said that if we have a proper structured demand and decide the time to implement it, it will be very good for the country and the person making the demand. He said that Railways do not want to beat the other modes of transport by competing but want to work by complementing. He said that Railways will be including all the ideas received during recently held Rail Vikas Shivir in the National Rail Plan.

BACKGROUNDER : -

· The Indian Railway Network is a key component of the Country’s Transport System. Transporting goods and passengers on a massive scale, the Indian Railways plays a critical role in India’s economic as well as social fabric, not to mention the security and cross-border strategic linkages. Pragmatic development of Indian Railway Network as part of the country’s overall multi-modal transport system is therefore, very important.

· So far, the development of the network is taken up based on numerous individual requests received from various stakeholders such as State Governments, elected representatives, industries, etc. for sanction of railway projects in different parts of the country. Based upon these representations and based upon infrastructural gaps, operational requirements, bottlenecks strategic requirements, socio-economic considerations and participation by other stakeholders, new railway projects are sanctioned. However, these projects are sanctioned mostly in isolation and may not necessarily take holistic view of railway infrastructural needs of the Country.

· Presently Railway planning is presently not based on some integrated plan. Surveys are initially done as per demands of Public representatives and the some of these lines are later sanctioned. Railways shall reverse the process. First the network plan should be there and accordingly surveys should be started. The network plan shall take into account connectivity to backward region, Congestion in the existing network and futuristic development of Industrial corridors. Deficits in existing network are to be planned for removal. There are huge regional imbalances.

· To take a holistic approach, a beginning was made 2 years back when 24 clusters were identified and process of removal of their bottlenecks was initiated on a corridor basis. Projects were sanctioned to decongest the network and works have started.

· To take this process to next level, National Rail Plan 2030 has been envisaged which shall not only take care of existing corridors but also the identification and development of new corridors & connections. This will facilitate easy movement of freight and passengers, and access to resources and services with reliability, safety and convenience to secure an environmentally efficient and long term sustainable rail transport system.

· Participation of all stake holders is the key in development of NRP. Suggestions/expectations/inputs from all are needed for deliberation and inclusion in NRP. Accordingly dedicated website for National Rail Plan (NRP) 2030 has been developed for all stake holders to give their inputs for purposeful study as Railways planning cannot be done in isolation.
· Railways are open to all ideas including any suggestion regarding how the plan should be prepared and implemented. National Rail Plan web site will be in public domain for consultation and shall be shared with all Stake holders in the transport sector including States, Different ministries involved with transportation, Federations such as CII and FICCI etc. All gaps in railway infrastructure are to be identified and ways to fill them up are to be worked out. There may be surplus infrastructure in some areas whereas deficit in other areas. All gaps are to be identified and balancing of views of all the stake holders in development of plan will be important.

This will also achieve the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s vision of integrated planning and cost optimization of the transportation network by laying the new railway lines and new highways together in tunnels and over mega-bridges.

The Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Shri J.P. Nadda and Minister for Railways, Shri Suresh Prabhu, today inaugurated two additional coaches of the Lifeline Express (LLE) to introduce cancer and family health services to the ‘Lifeline Express’. The additional coaches to the already existing five-coach hospital train ‘Lifeline Express’ will be used for detection & control of oral, breast and cervical cancer, and prevention of stroke and for family health services.
Speaking on the occasion, Shri J P Nadda stated that this initiative will help in reaching out to the unreached areas of the country, usually rural areas with insufficient medical facilities, or areas hit by natural disasters, etc. The train will stay in each place for several days while

medical care (routine as well as major surgery) is provided to the local people. “I thank Indian railways for this approach as we gave to provide health services wherever possible, especially in the inaccessible places where the train can go,” Shri Nadda elaborated.
These additional services will be provided to augment the existing restorative surgeries conducted for sight, hearing, clefts, burn contractures and orthopaedic impairment, and treatment of epilepsy and dental problems on the Lifeline Express. Three fully equipped operation theatres will be available for free-of-cost services to the rural poor across the country. A total of 10,000 persons will benefit at each project location. The augmented seven-coach Lifeline Express will commence its 178th Lifeline Express project at Satna, in Madhya Pradesh (MP) from December 15, 2016 till January 5, 2017. Other LLE projects in 2017 will be at Telangana, Punjab, Chhattisgarh, MP, Gujarat and other locations.
This is a unique project which has so far medically treated over one million disabled poor in rural India, all free of cost, made possible with the ‘donated’ services of over 200,000 medical professionals from around the world. At 177 projects across India, the Lifeline Express has performed more than one lakh surgeries for restoration of mobility, vision, hearing and correction of facial deformities. The Lifeline Express has also provided treatment for epilepsy and dental ailments.
The Lifeline Express known worldwide as the “Magic Train of India” has been the model for several countries to replicate this unique project with Hospital Trains and River Boat Hospitals.
Also present during the function were senior officers of the Ministry of Health and Railways.

इस्‍पात देश की प्रगति के लिए एक महत्‍वपूर्ण घटक है और भारतीय रेल उत्‍पाद को बढ़ावा देने के लिए सर्वाधिक लागत प्रभावित माध्‍यम है। वाईजैग स्‍टील ने समता एक्‍सप्रेस के माध्‍यम से अपनी ब्रांड छवि विकसित करने के लिए रेलवेका चयन किया है। यह बात केंद्रीय इस्‍पात मंत्री चौधरी वीरेन्‍द्र सिंह ने कही। चौधरी वीरेन्‍द्र सिंह रेल मंत्री सुरेश प्रभाकर प्रभु के साथ समता एक्‍सप्रेस को झंडी दिखाकर रवाना कर रहे थे।

स्‍टेशन पर दैनिक रेलगाड़ी हजरत निजामुद्दीन-विशाखापत्तनम को समता एक्‍सप्रेस को झंडी दिखाकर रवाना कर रहे थे। अब इस रेलगाड़ी का नाम वाईजैग स्‍टील समता एक्‍सप्रेस हो गया है। वाईजैग स्‍टील समता एक्‍सप्रेस रेलगाड़ी को पूरी तरह वाईजैग स्‍टील के उत्‍पादकों आकर्षक चित्रों से सजाया गया है।

चौधरी वीरेन्‍द्र सिंह ने मंदी के समय वाईजैग स्‍टील की सक्रियता की सराहना करते हुए कहा कि वाईजैग स्‍टील ने अपने विपणन प्रयासों को मजबूत और सक्रिय बनाया। उन्‍होंने बताया कि इससे वाईजैग स्‍टील की बाजार पहुंच न केवल शहरी और ग्रामीण बाजारों में बढ़ेगी बल्कि इससे देश में इस्‍पात की प्रति व्‍यक्ति खपत 61 किलोग्राम से बढ़कर वैश्विक स्‍तर 200 वॉट किलोग्राम करने में मदद मिलेगी।

वाईजैग स्‍टील सार्वजनिक क्षेत्र के इस्‍पात निगम लिमिटेड (आरआईएनएल) का ब्रांड नाम है और इसकी वार्षिक क्षमता 6.3 मिलियन टन है। यह देश का लंबा इस्‍पात उत्‍पादक, वायर रॉड रिबार और निर्माण तथा अवसंरचना क्षेत्र में काम आने वाले उत्‍पादकों का आपूर्तिकर्ता है। वाईजैग स्‍टील को गुणवत्‍ता और संचालन क्षमता के लिए जाना जाता है। यह पहला एकीकृ‍त इस्‍पात संयंत्र है जिसे गुणवत्‍ता, स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य, सुरक्षा तथा पर्यावरण के लिए प्रामाणित किया जाना है।

इस अवसर पर श्री सुरेश प्रभु ने कहा कि सार्वजनिक क्षेत्र के अन्‍य प्रतिष्‍ठानों को भी भारतीय रेल के माध्‍यम से अपने उत्‍पादों को प्रोत्‍साहित करने के लिए लाभ उठाना चाहिए। भारतीय रेल की पहुंच व्‍यापक है और कोई भी माध्‍यम व्‍यापकता की दृष्टि से भारतीय रेल के बराबर नहीं है।

आरआईएनएल के अध्‍यक्ष और प्रबंधक निदेशक पी मधुसूदन ने कहा कि इस्‍पात और भारतीय रेल का संबंध अनूठा है। इस्‍पात उद्योग कच्‍चे उत्‍पादों तथा तैयार उत्‍पादों की ढुलाई के लिए काफी हद तक भारतीय रेल पर निर्भर करता है और बदले में इस्‍पात संयंत्र रेलवे को ट्रैक, रॉलिंग, स्‍टॉक, पुल और स्‍टेशनों को बनाने के काम में इस्‍पात उपलब्‍ध कराता है। उन्‍होंने बताया कि आरआईएनएल भारत सरकार के ‘मेक इन इंडिया’ कार्यक्रम के अनुरूप रेलवे के लिए आयातित वस्‍तुओं की जगह इन वस्‍तुओं का उत्‍पादन शुरू करने की प्रक्रिया में है।


रेल मंत्री श्री सुरेश प्रभु तथा केंद्रीय इस्‍पात मंत्री चौधरी वीरेन्‍द्र सिंह दैनिक हजरत निजामुद्दीन-विशाखापत्‍तनम समता एक्‍सप्रेस (वाईजैग स्‍टील समता एक्‍सप्रेस) को झंडी दिखाकर नई दिल्‍ली के हजरत निजामुद्दीन स्‍टेशन से 8 दिसंबर, 2016 को रवाना करते हुए। साथ में है इस्‍पात राज्‍य मंत्री श्री विष्‍णुदेव साई, इस्‍पात सचिव डॉ अरूणा शर्मा, सेल के अध्‍यक्ष श्री पी के सिंह तथा आरआईएनएल के अध्‍यक्ष और प्रबंधक निदेशक श्री पी मधुसूदन।

Revenue, DMRC, KRTL officials to participate in the process that may stretch to a couple of days
A joint inspection to acquire the land needed for the flyovers and 19 stations in the 21.8-km Reach I of the Light Metro proposed from Technocity to Karamana in the capital will commence on Wednesday.
Officials of the Department of Revenue, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (DMRC) —the turnkey consultants for the interim works, and Kerala Rapid Transit Corporation Ltd (KRTL)— the special purpose vehicle set up to execute the project, will participate in the inspection.

The personnel would visit the locations of the 19 stations and three flyovers at Sreekaryam, Ulloor, and Pattom along NH 66, identified for introducing MRTS at a cost Rs.4,219 crore, a KRTL official told The Hindu.
“The exercise is part of acquiring 1.98 hectares for the 19 stations and another 2.11 hectares for the flyovers,” he added.
The survey numbers of the land needed from Pallipuram, Kazhakuttam, Pangappara, Cheruvakkal, Ulloor, Kowdiar, Pattom, Vanchiyoor and Thycaud villages have been notified.
The inspection would stretch to a couple of days if the State decided for a detailed inspection of the sites identified, a DMRC official said. The government also entrusted the land acquisition, cleared by the Cabinet three months ago, to the Deputy Collector (General).
The administrative sanction had already been given for Rs.272.84 crore that included the cost of the land. The maiden board meeting of the Kerala Infrastructure Investment Board (KIIFB) was given approval for the construction of three flyovers.
The design and drawings of the fourth flyover at Thampanoor by the DMRC is yet to get the nod of the PWD and the government. Natpac, which was tasked to carry the traffic study in Thampanoor, is yet to submit the report.
Although the district administration has transferred 10.11 hectares of land near the CRPF camp Pallipuram to the KRTL for the light metro depot at Technocity, they have not taken possession of the land.
Technical committee
Meanwhile, the government has constituted a technical committee to review and accord technical approval for the flyovers proposed by the DMRC.
Besides the Managing Director of the KRTL, the Chief Engineers, PWD (NH), Chief Engineer, PWD (Roads and Bridges), and the Director of Natpac are the members.
The technical committee would meet again on December 9 and give its report to the government, the KRTL official added.

Lack of land, rail and road connectivity keeping Make In India week’s big-ticket projects at discussion stage, says report
Mumbai: Ten months after the State government signed MoUs with investors worth Rs 8,00,000 crore at the Make In India Week, the most recent assessment of agreements signed shows major projects worth Rs. 1,50,000 crore have not moved beyond the discussion table. Among the reasons given are lack of land, and road and rail connectivity. The deals in limbo include global electronics giant Foxconn’s promised investment of Rs. 30,000 crore, Twin Star Display Technologies Ltd’s Rs. 60,000-crore investment in Nagpur and assured investments of Rs. 1,200 crore by Gujarat Aluminium Foils, Navi Mumbai Smart City Project, Sunstream City Pvt Ltd and the Broadway
...

Integrated Park by Mutha Realty.
Officials, however, said most major investors are waiting for suitable land options, including Foxconn and Twin Star, as are Broadway Integrated Park and the Joshi group with assured investment of Rs. 1,500 crore investment. “Land has been identified for most of these projects, but land allotment files are waiting clearance from the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC),” a senior government official said.
At the end of the Make in India Week in February, the State government had claimed to have received assurances of investment worth Rs 8,00,000 crore by signing as many as 2,984 MoUs with national and international firms.
Prakash Reddy, State secretary, Communist Party of India (CPI), said, “It is assumed that these MoUs are signed and will result in investment. But if we see, there has been no accountability and there is no follow-up to take these agreements to a logical conclusion. Every year, there is a lot of noise (over MoUs); the Jaitapur plant MoU was signed in 2005. but what is the progress? So, just because an MoU has been signed doesn’t mean progress and employment will take place. Make in India is a failure and land, electricity have been given cheap to the companies without any purpose and accountability.”
Of the 2,512 MoUs inked with Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), 46 per cent are still at the first stage of deliberations. Only 14 per cent of these are in the under-construction stage while 22 per cent are in the production stage. Officials said maximum projects are concentrated in the Pune region, with as many as 799 investors demanding land around Pune and surrounding areas.
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had announced during the Make in India Week that the event had made a mark in the country’s history and set a standard which “we will now have to match or even better”.
Most projects in the tourism sector including for theme parks and hotels are stuck for environment clearance. For example, the SK Theme Park, proposed to be set up at Palghar, is on hold after being sanctioned by the State government. “There was a new notification regarding the Coastal Regulation Zone which has blocked the project,” an industries department official said. Proposals worth Rs. 15,000 crore are stuck in the tourism sector, the report estimates.

Pune Metropolitan Area will be benefited through this metro corridor, it added.
The project is scheduled to be completed in five years from the date of start of work as per the Detailed Project Report (DPR). The Project will be implemented by Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MAHA-METRO), which will be a 50:50 jointly owned company of Government of India and the Maharashtra government.
The existing Nagpur Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (NMRCL), a joint Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) of Government of India and Maharashtra government, would be reconstituted into MAHA-METRO for implementation of all Metro projects including Pune Metro Rail Project Phase-1 in Maharashtra outside the Mumbai Metropolitan Region.
The approved alignments are expected to provide the much needed connectivity to the commuters and would traverse through some of the densest and traffic congested routes in the Pune Metropolitan Area, the release said. —
