"The SER has received new surveys for a Kandra- Namkum new line (106 km), Lodhma-Kandra via Khunti and Tamar new line (106 km) and Tata-Jharsugda fourth line (265 km) in Jharkhand," a written statement from the SER zone's headquarters in Kolkata read. Besides new railway tracks, the state will have five new road over-bridges and construction of 13 subways to phase out the unmanned railway crossings.

The Ranchi division of South Eastern Railways had submitted a list of 40 demands to the Union railway ministry for financial allocation in this year's Union Budget and sought funds for construction of new railway stations, foot over-bridges and road over bridges. The SER zone, in its wish-list, had proposed a revision of schedules of many important trains that are originating from Ranchi, Hatia, Kharagpur, Chakradharpur, Adra and Tatanagar railway stations. The railway ministry had allocated Rs 1544.3 crore to different railway projects of Jharkhand.

BPL has a very strong reason for better connectivity, as it is capital of a large state, many people from far off regions need a atleast daily overnight or day time intercity connection depending upon the distance and traffic, so that they can conveniently travel to state capital for various business/ govt related work.
-
IND too should get high priority for direct connections to various parts of MP as well as major regions/ cities of India outside MP. Actually very poor connectivity (trains) actually exists. Since there are no passing trains through
...
more...
IND (unlike JBP) a large number of originating trains are required. On the other hand more and more originating trains of MP had been introduced from JBP (being WCR-HQ) rather than from IND in spite of the fact that its revenue(JBP's) is very low as compared to the number of trains that originate from here. Once more trains are introduced from BPL/IND its revenue shall see a quantum jump as BPL/IND is growing at much higher rate than JBP.
-
JBP used to be capital of huge Central province which included Vidarbha region and was one of the most prominent cities of Central India. But after formation of MP state with BPL as capital during reorganisation of states, BPL a relatively smaller city grew leap and bounds overtaking JBP by wide margin. On the other hand the previously pampered JBP was left high & dry and left with high court. That too wad diluted after benches were opened at IND & Gwalior.
-
But in Railway matters JBP undoubtedly is the most pampered city of MP.
Population of- IND/ BPL/ JBP/ GWL urban agglomerations in lacs
2011 census - 21.7/ 18.9/ 12.7/ 11.2 Population in lacs 2011
2001 census-15.1/ 14.6/ 11/ 8.7 Population in lacs 2001
Growth (lacs)-6.6/4.3/1.7/2.5 Population added in 10 years 2001-11
Growth (in%) -44%/29%/15%/29% decadal population 2001-11
Above data shows population Indore had grown at the rate of 44%, BPL-29%, & JBP only 15% in a10 yrs. So IND is getting maximum migrant population and deserves more new trains to take care of the travelling requirements of migrants/ burgeoning population.

Actually NCR portion of MP is relatively backward and does not have any big/ medium city. This year NCR itself has got not much funds as compared to other zones.
MP is a huge state and it would need a lot of new rail lines if all the district HQs are to be connected by rail. However, Lalitpur-Tikamgarh(distt HQ)-Chhatarpur(distt HQ)-Khajuraho-Satna, (+Khajuraho-Mahoba ) is a mega new line project which is moving at very good pace (as per IR standards) and improve rail connectivity of the region in a big way.

HIGHLIGHTS UP is the major gainer with the highest allocation of Rs 7,110 crore for railway projects Even in 2016-17, UP bagged a significant number of projects, worth around Rs 4,950 crore The high fund allocatio reflects the Modi govt’s eagerness to regain power in the state which is going to polls this month (AP photo) NEW DELHI: The first Budget speech after the merger of the rail budget may not have contained any announcements relating to UP, but the poll-bound state is major gainer with the highest allocation of Rs 7,110 crore for railway projects such as laying of new tracks, doubling, electrification and other works related to enhancing passenger amenities. The politically crucial state is on the priority list of the BJP government as even in 2016-17, UP bagged a significant number of projects, worth around Rs 4,950 crore.

to NDA out of total 80 parliamentary seats during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, went up to Rs 3,405 crore between 2014-15 to 2016-17. The average plan allocation during UPA-II regime (2009-10 to 2013-14) was Rs 1,109.3 crore. "It is a 541% increase in average plan allocation for the state between UPA-II and the current BJP regime," said a senior railway official, adding that the allocation is also the highest in the last 10 years. He said, "The hike in plan outlay is 207% when compared between 2009-13 and 2014-16." The high fund allocation for the third consecutive year for several railway infrastructure projects reflects the Modi government's eagerness to regain power in the state which is going to polls this month. However, another official said, "The expansion work in UP also suits the railways' plan to decongest the high density Delhi-Howrah route which will benefit Bihar and West Bengal." The state has got 37 projects related to new lines, doubling and gauge conversion and 10 projects for electrification of the track. The state is a gainer when it comes to building rail over-bridge and under-bridge aimed at eliminating level crossings which have become the single largest killer on tracks. The plan allocation for other states have also seen significant increase as the transporter has substantially increased the total capital expenditure to the tune of Rs 1.31 lakh crore for 20017-18 and planned commissioning of 3,500 km railway lines in 2017-18, up from 2,800 km in 2016-17. Automatic doors for Rajdhanis, Shatabdis NEW DELHI: Premium trains like Rajdhani and Shatabadi will soon be fitted with automatic doors, like those in metros. to enhance passenger safety and check crime on running trains.

Eeatern DFC is going to be life line of IR in UP, as it will take on most of the freight trains in UP and give a new lease of life to the large number of passenger trains, running on existing routes (especially the over crowded NDLS-MGS). We can expect 10kmph increase in avg running speed of pax trains once E-DFC is commissioned and freight trains are off the NDLS-MGS route.

BSP-NGP 410 km is proposed for SHS train(160kmph). A substantial portion of this route is to be barricaded for safe operation of SHS. It is reported that Rs. 16.35 crore required for barricading of BSP-Durg track. For BSP-NGP the figure should be about 50 Crores. 1.13 crore allocation is too low for any significant progress in barricading.

BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh is among top two states to get highest fund allocation in railway budget for 2017-18, but residents of Bhopal or those travelling to Bhopal or in Bhopal division have little reason to feel happy about. All that the capital got in the budget is handful of money or 5-year plans and sanctions for 7 foot over-bridges at stations, doubling of a railway line and camtech design pit line at Habibganj coaching depot. According to passengers in division, the railway budget is more of a formality this year. "Many things could have been sanctioned to capital division in Madhya Pradesh in railway budget. But it seems that West Central Railways received the lowest," said R K Agnihotri, member, Divisional Rail Users Consultative Committee (DRUCC), Bhopal division. He said, "Bhopal is a link between two parts of the country, North and South. It sould have been treated properly with new...

trains and new railway lines. Pune and Nagpur should have been directly connected from Bhopal as there is already traffic on route of Itarsi and other stations from where passengers take trains to south states." As per the budget, Madhya Pradesh got Rs 5,376 crore in railway budget. Of this, Rs 720 crore has gone to Ratlam division.

“NPAs of banks not addressed as expected”
Financial and tax experts from the KPMG here on Saturday said Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley presented a pragmatic budget, but certain key issues such as NPA (non performing assets) of banks was not addressed as desired.
This was pointed out by Amit Jain, tax expert from the KPMG at a post-budget analysis session, organized by the Vizagapatam Chamber of Commerce and the A.P. Information Technology Association.

According to him, the Minister provided only ₹10,000 crore for recapitalisation of the banks, but at the same time banks have NPAs of over ₹5 lakh crore. And most of the NPAs belong to infrastructure companies, he added.
On demonetisation, Mr. Jain said its impact was still to be assessed as it was a huge exercise. But what was important was the FM’s assurance that it would not have any disruptive impact during the current fiscal. “Even if remonetisation takes place at the expected pace, we still have to wait and watch,” he said.
About the likely impact of the proposals on Andhra Pradesh, Mr. Jain said the plan to introduce a new Metro Rail Act and give importance to building airports in tier-two cities would benefit the State in the long run.
Metro rail
“The State has plans to take up metro rail projects in Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam and wants to build about 13 new airports in each of the districts. This Act will benefit the State,” he said.
Another expert Sumit Gupta said though Mr. Jaitley had not raised the exemption limit to ₹4 lakh to ₹5 lakh per annum for the salaried class, he had rationalised the tax structure and given some relief to the lowest bracket of tax payers by reducing the rate to 5 per cent from 10 per cent. Sanjay Ahuja, in his presentation, pointed out that the reduction of corporate tax from 30% to 25% for MSMEs would boost the manufacturing sector.
The special rate of 10% on income earned through transfer of carbon credits would mitigate the litigation relating to the issue.

the transport sector, as a whole, including railways, road, shipping, the Finance Minister said, “I have provided Rs 2,41,387 crore in 2017-18.”
The FM said, “I feel privileged to present the first combined budget of Independent India that includes the Railways also. We are now in a position to synergise the investment in railways, roads, waterways and civil aviation.
For 2017-18, the total capital and development expenditure of Railways has been pegged at Rs 1,31,000 crore. This includes Rs 55,000 crore provided by the government from the Budget.”

He said, “In the road sector I have stepped up the budget allocation for the National Highways from Rs 57,676 crore in the BE of 2016-17 to Rs 64,000 crore in 2017-18.”
Mr. Jaitley said 2,000 kms of coastal connectivity roads have been identified for construction and development.
This will facilitate better connectivity of ports and remote villages, he said.
“The total length of roads including those under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) built from 2014-15 to current year is about 1,40,000 kms which is significantly higher than the previous three years,” Jaitley said.
He added that an effective multi-modal logistics and transport system will “make our economy more competitive. A specific programme for development of multi-modal logistic parks together with multi-modal facilities will be drawn up and implemented.”
On solar power front, he said the second phase of solar power development will be taken up with an aim of generating 20,000 MW.
Also, he said select airports in tier-II cities will be taken up for operations and development on PPP mode.
× A new metro rail policy will have innovative methods of financing, the FM said.

Union Minister Y.S. Chowdary (Sujana) thanked the Finance Minister on behalf of the farmers of AP for the capital gains tax exemption.
Health Minister Kamineni Srinivas thanked the Prime Minister and the Finance Minister for responding to the appeal of the farmers.
Telugu Desam State president Kala Venkata Rao said the Budget did good for all sections. He said due priority had been given to agriculture.
Farmers and agricultural workers would be vastly benefited, he said.
CPI (M) state secretary P Madhu said an extremely raw deal was meted out to AP.
CPI state secretary K. Ramakrishna said nothing special had been given to the State.
‘Corporate sector gains’
APCC president N. Raghuveera Reddy said the Budget contained nothing that would revive the economy, which suffered a major setback due to demonetisation.
He said in a press release due priority had not been given to the poor, middle classes, farmers and youth.
“It is, however, beneficial to the corporate sector,” he said.
“The Congress is welcoming the restrictions imposed on donations to political parties,” Mr. Reddy added.
YSRC chief whip in Parliament Y.V. Subba Reddy said in Ongole that none of the issues concerning the State, including the SCS and the special package, had been addressed.

Veteran Communist Party of India (Marxist) [CPI(M)] leader V.S. Achuthanandan has described the Union Budget for 2017-18 as a jugglery with figures and lacking a sense of reality.
Mr. Achuthanandan, in his Budget reaction on Wednesday, said that while doling out benefits to corporates, it did not have proposals to bring the nation out of the crisis thrown up by demonetisation. No proposal had been made for creating jobs, improving the life of the common man, or check inflation.
The price of LPG had been raised too. The State was not granted AIIMS.
