The sale of mobile tickets for travel on suburban trains in Chennai division of Southern Railway has touched another milestone.The number of mtickets sold per day in August crossed 10,000 or 3 lakh a month, official figures say.
This is more than a 10-fold increase from August 2015, when only 938 mtickets were sold daily. Officials say the jump came through sustained awareness campaigns at suburban stations and on social media till a few months ago.
Introduced in April 2015, the facility was envisaged to eliminate long queu es at ticket counters.Suburban commuters

could download the Unreserved Ticketing System (UTS) app on their android devices and buy tickets through it. The R-wallet, to be used for making payment for the tickets, can now be recharged online as opposed to counter payment earlier.
The breakthrough came when the facility was provided to sell season tickets as well.

A joint committee set up to finalise the modalities for the merger of Rail Budget with the General Budget has submitted its report to the Finance Ministry recommending various changes including waiving off of payment of dividend by railways though the practice of getting gross budgetary support (GBS) from the exchequer will continue.

Merging of Railway Budget with the General Budget is a dis-aster. The focus on Railways will get lost. Railways will become like one more government department. You will never hear about Railway's finances after that? Does anyone notice what happened to Post office and their finances. Railways will become like another black-hole like Post offices. Suresh Prabhu is planning to kill Railways with this. We will become like Pakistan in Railways. Slowly Railway will die.

The draft note will be floated for inter-ministerial discussion before it is tabled before the Cabinet, which is likely to take up these issues towards the end of this month, sources said.
The finance ministry will shortly circulate a Cabinet note to merge the railway budget with the Union Budget, advance presentation by a month and doing away with Plan and non-Plan expenditure head in the Budget.

the end of this month, sources said. If the Cabinet agrees to the finance ministry's proposal, the Budget will be presented in January instead of the last working day of February. The ministry also seeks to end distinction between Plan and non-Plan expenditure and replace it with capital and revenue expenditure.
The finance ministry is seeking approval for these three proposals with an intention to get them implemented in the Budget for 2017-18, the sources said. There is no specific date mentioned in the Constitution for presenting the Union Budget. The Narendra Modi government is planning to present it in the last week of January so that the entire process can be wrapped up by March. The new financial year starts from April 1. Besides, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu has favoured scrapping the practice of having a separate railway budget. He wants it to be merged with the general Budget like it happens in all other ministries, including the all-crucial Defence.
Considered a British legacy, India follows accounting period from April to March, in line with the Gregorian calendar of accounting. The government has constituted a committee headed by former chief economic advisor Shankar Acharya to study the feasibility of adopting a new financial year. The panel is slated to submit its report by December 31, 2016.
Previously, the L K Jha Committee, appointed in May 1984 to look into the matter, had recommended switching over to the calendar year, but the government did not accept the recommendation, saying it would cause large-scale problems as most Indian companies follow the April-March cycle. As the financial year begins on April 1, the government in March takes Parliament's approval for Vote-on-Account for a sum of money sufficient to meet expenditure on various items for the next 2-3 months till the full Budget is passed. The Demands and Appropriation Bill entailing full-year expenditure as well as tax changes is then passed in April-May.

Wary passengers who logged on to the Indian Railways booking website today morning expecting a jump in ticket prices were in for a pleasant surprise. Fares of premier trains like the Rajdhani and the Shatabdi remained largely unchanged despite dynamic pricing being enforced from today.
According to the railways' new rule on surge pricing, passengers travelling by premier trains including Rajdhani, Duronto and Shatabdi now pay between 10 to 50 per cent more for their tickets. The new pricing rule only applies on passengers travelling in AC-2 tier and 3 AC coaches.

bookings opened at 8:00 AM today morning, the fare for a 3AC ticket from Mumbai to New Delhi on the Rajdhani remained Rs. 2125. Even as the seats got quickly filled, the price remained unchanged. Even when less than 30 per cent of the total seats remained, there was no change in the price.
Travel agents remained clueless about how dynamic pricing would affect passengers on the first day of what the railways clarified was only an 'experiment'.
On Thursday, Indian Railways said that the flexi-fare system would be closely monitored to study its impact. The scheme is being run on a trial basis as the railways' struggles to turn around its operations after running losses for three straight years.
Experts say that the new system would be more transparent and effective that a flat increase in fares if needed. They point out that the railways have a monopoly, and given the high demand for tickets, passengers would pay higher fares in absence of alternatives.
However the introduction of dynamic pricing met with strong criticism from political parties including the Congress. Under pressure, Railway Board chairman AK Mittal said the dynamic fare system was not a permanent feature and it would be reviewed after some time.

शताब्दी, दुरंतो और राजधानी ट्रेनों के पैसेंजर्स को 9 सितंबर से ज्यादा किराया चुकाना होगा। रेलवे ने इन ट्रेनों में फ्लेक्सी किराया सिस्टम लागू करने का ऐलान किया है। इसके तहत डिमांड के साथ ही किराया भी बढ़ता जाएगा। किराया बढ़ाने के लिए 10 फीसदी के स्लैब बनाए गए हैं। पहली 10 फीसदी सीटों पर तो मूल किराया ही लिया जाएगा लेकिन इन सीटों के फुल होते ही अगली 10 फीसदी सीटों के लिए 10 फीसदी किराया ज्यादा देना होगा। इस तरह से 10-10 फीसदी के अनुपात में 10 फीसदी किराया तब तक बढ़ता जाएगा, जब तक यह 50 फीसदी तक न पहुंच जाए। इस तरह से ट्रेन के आधे पैसेंजर्स को तो पचास फीसदी अधिक किराया देना ही होगा।

भी गाज
यह गाज दुरंतो की स्लीपर क्लास सीटों पर भी लागू होगा। इसके अलावा थर्ड और सेकंड एसी के लिए भी इसी तरह से डिमांड के आधार पर हर 10 फीसदी सीटों के बाद 10 फीसदी किराया बढ़ जाएगा। अधिकतम 50 फीसदी तक किराया बढ़ेगा। इसी तरह से शताब्दी ट्रेनों के लिए भी यही प्रणाली लागू की गई है। इसके तहत चेयरकार के पैसेंजर्स पर भी 10 फीसदी सीटें फुल होने के बाद अगली 10 फीसदी सीटों के लिए किराया 10 फीसदी ज्यादा देना होगा। आधी सीटें बुक होने के बाद बाकी आधी सीटों पर पैसेंजर्स को 50 फीसदी अतिरिक्त किराया देना होगा।अपर क्लास को छूट
महत्वपूर्ण है कि इस किराया सिस्टम को फर्स्ट एसी और एग्जिक्युटिव क्लास (EC) पर अतिरिक्त बोझ नहीं डाला गया है। इन दोनों ही कैटिगरी के पैसेंजर्स के किराए में किसी तरह की बढ़ोतरी नहीं की गई है और न ही डिमांड बढ़ने पर इन पैसेंजर्स को अतिरिक्त किराया चुकाना होगा।
इंडियन रेलवे का कहना है कि इस बेस किराए के साथ ही रिजर्वेशन चार्जेज, सुपरफास्ट चार्जेज, कैटरिंग चार्जेज और सर्विस टैक्स भी पहले की तरह ही देना होगा लेकिन टैक्स नए किराए की राशि के आधार पर ही चुकाना होगा
कैंसल टिकट पर किराया
रेलवे ने साफ किया है कि जो भी टिकट कैंसल होंगे, उनके लिए करंट रेट पर ही किराया लिया जाएगा यानी उस वक्त ट्रेन में जो किराया चल रहा होगा, वही लागू होगा। अगर चार्ट बनने के बाद टिकट कैंसल होता है तो उस वक्त करंट काउंटर पर ये टिकट उपलब्ध होंगे लेकिन इसके लिए भी वही किराया लिया जाएगा, जो अंतिम टिकटों के लिए लिया गया होगा। इन ट्रेनों में प्रीमियम तत्काल कोटा लागू नहीं किया जाएगा। जिन पैसेंजर्स को किराए में छूट मिलती है, उन्हें यह छूट मिलेगी लेकिन उसी टिकट की दर पर मिलेगी, जो उस वक्त चल रहा होगा।
रेलवे का कहना है कि नया सिस्टम 9 सितंबर से लागू होगा और अगर किसी ने पहले ही टिकट बुक करा रखा है तो उसे अतिरिक्त शुल्क नहीं देना होगा।

The best way for the railways to become more professional will be to get corporatised, says Subir Roy.
There is a strong likelihood that we have seen the last of the railway Budget.
The only person who can oppose the idea of ending the legacy practice of having a separate Budget for the railways is the railway minister of the day.
But
...
more...
Suresh Prabhu wants to bury the venerable institution.
The Union finance ministry is not terribly worked up either way and the public doesn’t know whether this will be good for it or not.
The greatest plus of abolishing the railway Budget is to do away with the chance it gives the railway minister of the day to grandstand before the nation and Parliament for an hour or more, when he feels obliged to announce a few new passenger trains and avoid raising passenger fares.
This has severely damaged the financial health of the organisation over the years.
If there is no Budget on which all attention is focused, fares can be raised with minimum fuss and fanfare. Sans Budget, key business decisions can be taken without them being politicised.
This should, over time, put the railways on a firmer commercial footing, leading to better financial health.
But it is important to realise that post Budget, the railways will not automatically become a more commercial entity.
Theoretically, the carrier can become like any other departmental undertaking in which information is released by the ministry concerned virtually at its convenience.
Lack of transparency is bad not just for stakeholders such as suppliers, customers and the society overall but eventually for the government, the sole shareholder, also, as the full cost of opacity becomes apparent only over time.
Right now, the Budget and accompanying papers give a certain amount of very current information (revised estimates for the financial year) but you have to wait for the annual report which is a year behind for information such as average lead for wagons, which impacts wagon utilisation.
Figures specific to a departmental undertaking are available not in the Union Budget but in the undertaking’s annual report.
Imagine not knowing how the railways have done in a financial year till well after the year is over and long after most leading companies in the country have announced their earnings.
The least that the minister should do right away is announce that even without a rail Budget speech, the rail Budget papers will be made available with the Union Budget papers.
The point is, post Budget, the railways should not recede behind a departmental veil but rather quickly become more forthright with information and, overall, more transparent.
The first step the railways needs to take to put itself on a more commercial footing is to restate its accounts on an accrual basis as do companies.
The accounts need to fully subsume accrued liabilities like pension obligations.
Also, there is no accurate assets register and provision for depreciation, so that the written-down value of assets is not known and the net profit is arrived at without properly providing for depreciation.
There has been inordinate delay in the restating of accounts. It is not clear why proforma commercial accounts cannot be published quickly just to offer a contrast.
These new-type accounts can be improved over time.
There is obviously a vested interest in delaying action on this front which is trying to hide behind the desire for perfection.
The best way for the railways to become more professional will be to get corporatised.
The government can have as much shareholding as it wants to but even a token public shareholding will impose its own discipline and create value.
Once this happens, raising resources from multiple sources will become easier as potential investors will have a clearer picture of the organisation.
With this, the pressure to secure budgetary resources for investment will ease. The Union finance ministry should like this.
The net amount to be transferred (budgetary support less dividend paid) will be commensurate with the development role visualised for the national carrier.
Right now, the budgetary support, which is a loan in perpetuity, is partly used to pay dividend, which is really interest on the loan.
So the railways is borrowing to pay interest! There is a development role for the railways under its social service obligations and the nation should be happy to pay for it.
The only issue is, a lot of inefficiency has been hidden behind the railways’ need to discharge these obligations.
The loss incurred on uneconomical freight rates for essential commodities and uneconomical lines should be computed by independent auditors according to costing norms used by other railways.
This amount should be reimbursed by the finance ministry and the railways thereafter need to be held accountable for its performance.
The greatest benefit from restating railways accounts along commercial lines is enabling accurate costing, which is vital if businesses have to be organised as profit centres, going down to individual trains.
Without this it is not possible to know which line of business or line of service makes money or not.
Mr Prabhu has taken the first step in the right direction.
He has now to show that he can take on the vested interests within the railways which are resisting change through corporatisation.
What the government or the ministry wants the railways to do can be incorporated in a memorandum of understanding which Navaratna public sector companies sign.
This will create both accountability and autonomy.

After 92 years of seeing them separately, the next year will witness Railway budget merged into Union budget. This move is being lauded for it will be beneficial for the economy at large and there will be positive influence in the development in railways.
During the British reign, having a separate Railway budget made sense because a larger part of the country’s GDP depended on railway revenue. The tradition of having the budgets separately continued when India gained freedom even though the revenue from railway continued to go lower than most of the organizations in the public and private sector.
Pros
...
more...

1. The scores: During the British rule Railways took up to 85 percent of the yearly budget while now it has gone down to about 15 percent only. Having separate railway budget stopped making sense long ago but the old tradition was not done away with. Scrapping the old for the renewed and better is always a positive change to look upon.
2. Better policies: Now that the Railway budget will be introduced along with the union budget, there will be less wastage of time when a new policy is to be initiated and implemented. Keeping them separate resulted in a lot of drawbacks and hindrances that had to be faced by the railway ministry before it could decide upon a solution.
3. Party politics: Minority parties fighting to meet their intentions and ministers of certain states arguing new railways and trains for their region has always been known to result in an everlasting brawl. There will be less of political pressure on the Railway budget and the centre will have the ultimate hold of the decision making.
4. Goodbye to annual dividend: When Rail budget had to be introduced separately, the railways needed to pay an annual dividend to render its budgetary support to the government. The railways will be free of this now and the same fund could now be used in better ways for development the conditions of Indian railways.
5. The huge loss: Our railways are running on loss. There are lesser funds for development plans and most of them are wasted in wrongful manner when there emerges a demand from the regional MLA who promised new trains and stoppages for their location during the time of election. When it goes into the hands of finance ministry, it would mean and absolute end to this and a more commercialized distribution of resources.
Cons
1. The rise and fall: Henceforth, the distribution and allocation of funds to various departments will all go under the finance ministry, which will take decisions according to rise and fall of budget. A fall in the annual budget will mean a similar cut in the railway and other budgets. This will be something unusual for the railways and they might not react supportively to that.
2. Conditions of government departments: The depleting conditions of the various departments under the government have always been prominent. There is lesser attention paid to the responsibilities and everyone is busy sorting out their own means. Railways might see drastic disadvantage if the merging doesn’t reap the desired result.
3. Goodbye to privatization: There have previously been talks of privatization of Indian railways in order to improve and develop them with world class facilities and cleanliness. It was not well received earlier and after the merging, there will a complete end to any future chances of privatization. At the efficient hands of government employees, nothing big could be expected.
4. Loss for the railways: We know how much our parties love making promises and then reducing price to earn the favor of the voters. Not in their wildest dreams would they want to hike the railway prices and lose the vote bank that flows from commuters. Lesser hikes in price might pose loss for the railways department.
There have been mismanagement of the highest order in Indian railways and if there are chances of seeing it improve, merging it with the Union budget is just the solution that could help. The falling revenue and more projects for new trains and stoppages have been a difficult project for the railway ministry which took the right step by merging the two budgets.
