PM to lay Foundation for Karimnagar-Secunderabad Rail line

Prime Minister to lay stone for railway line connecting Karimnagar and Secunderabad
Modi KCR meetingPrime Minister Narendra Modi would lay foundation stone for the long-cherished dream of a railway line from Karimnagar to Secunderabad, during his visit to Gajwel on August 7. The proposed

railway line will begin from Kothapalli to Manoharabad near Secunderabad.
Disclosing this to newsmen here on Saturday, Karimnagar MP B.Vinod Kumar said that Chief Minister K.Chandrasekhar Rao proposed the railway line when he was Karimnagar MP in 2004. When the Railway authorities had said that it was not feasible, Mr Rao assured that the State government would bear one-third of the project cost and also hand over land free of cost to the Railways.
Again when the Railways said that they would incur losses, the Chief Minister gave consent for payment of annuity for the first five years after commissioning of the project.
At last, the Railways had agreed to take up the project, he said and added that they had already acquired about 900 acres of land in Medak district for the same.
He also said that they would expedite the process of land acquisition in Karimnagar district and two villages of Warangal district near Komaravelli.
Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu had also given consent for laying foundation for the construction of bridge across the river Manair near Boinpally very soon for the Kothapalli to Manoharabad railway line.
He urged the Union government to take measures for the early completion of the project. ZP chairperson Tula Uma, MLC N Laxman Rao, Choppadandi legislator B Shoba, Mayor S Ravinder Singh and others were also present.
The proposed line would be useful to the region to get connected to to North India, and would emerge as a link to extend the facility of being connected with the North-South corridor, to the whole of Telangana.

Ashok Lavasa, Finance Secretary, spoke to Puja Mehra about the proposed reforms of the budgeting process that the Centre is working on
Edited excerpts:
Railways Minister Mr. Suresh Prabhu has sought a merger of the Railway Budget with the Union Budget. If accepted, will the move widen fiscal deficit?
We are looking at the proposal. In the past too some committees have made the
...
more...
recommendation. The thought has been with us for some time. My own sense, without having gone deep into the matter, is that it will not make too much of a difference to the general budget. It only means that the Railway Budget will not be presented separately. It will alter the numbers [the expenditure and revenue projections etc] but I don’t think it will alter the fiscal deficit. The Railway Budget is taking care of its own requirements. The Railways don’t have an operating loss. Their operating ratio varies but is always around 90 per cent. It has never been over the top.
The next Budget could see several institutional changes—new fiscal year and no plan-non-plan distinction. How different will the Budget process be?
For eliminating the distinction between plan and non-plan and replacing it with revenue and capital expenditures, a decision is already in place. A very elaborate exercise is going on for both the procedural as well as the formatting aspects. Soon we should be in a position to lay down the new structure of the budget.
The necessity of planning has been underscored. For every scheme being implemented, a new scheme conceived or a new project to be made, the first decision is that the scheme should have a sunset clause. This entails two things: you are able to predict the kind of resources which will be required in a given length of time and the corollary to that is that you have given yourself and the system a certain timeframe within which the desired outcome and the output should be achieved.
There could always be cases where even after achieving the output for the outcome you might have to wait. This is the thinking behind the new design. We are also expecting all the ministries to undertake an evaluation of the current schemes as you happen to be in the terminal year of the 12th plan. Should they decide for good reasons after their evaluation that the schemes need to continue then they will have to make a case for that.
A similar exercise was undertaken by a committee of state chief ministers that gave its report to the NITI Aayog on centrally-sponsored schemes.
This is the time to take stock, review, evaluate and come to a well-reasoned conclusion on whether they want to end a scheme or revamp it, such as the central sector schemes in the department of human resource development or social welfare or the environment.
The 7th Pay Commission recommended that no more pay commissions should be appointed and a system of pay revisions linked to performance should be introduced. Did the Centre miss an opportunity to improve governance and introduce efficiency by not accepting it?
The government has accepted recommendations pertaining to pay and pension.
All the rest, it left to be decided subsequently. Issues which are administrative in nature, those have been left to respective departments to examine.
So is there a deadline?
The government has not said it has not accepted or rejected the other recommendations. Commissions have made observations, advice that can not be strictly categorised as recommendations. But all the same, since experts go into issues of governance, the government does consider their observations. There is no deadline, but obviously, at some point, the ministries will be asked to tell us their view on those recommendations.
The government is bottom-heavy with perhaps too few bureaucrats. Do you expect any decision to rationalise it?
There is an ongoing process in which cadre strengths are reviewed. All organised services are supposed to carry out cadre restructuring exercises every five years. It is at that point in time you take a view whether you want to increase or decrease the posts, or change the strengths at the different levels. There are authorities within the government empowered to create posts when situations demand it. Equally, there are rules that say if a post is sanctioned but not utilised for a certain length of time then it lapses.
On the other hand, there could be an argument that government should downsize or right-size. There could be a case to re-engineer the work of the government by which the burden of various departments is divested. Take the case of passport services or Registrar of Companies.

Bengaluru: Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, who was here to inaugurate the new entry gate and escalators at the Yeshwantpur Junction on Saturday, announced a slew of goodies for the city.
Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, on Saturday said the Centre is willing to start the suburban rail project in Bengaluru in partnership with the state government.
“I know people living in Whitefield are finding it difficult without a suburban rail. We have announced suburban rail in the budget. I had a discussion with the state government even today (Saturday). We are

open and most willing to start this project as a partner with the state government. We have decided to take this up with equity participation and I have invited the minister of Large and Medium Scale Industries from Commerce and Industries and Infrastructure Development, R.V. Deshpande to come to Delhi to discuss about this project,” Mr Prabhu said.
He was presiding the inaugural function of a new entry gate and escalators at the Yeshwantpura Junction on Saturday afternoon attended by the Union Minister of Statistics and Programme Implementation, D.V. Sadananda Gowda and Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers and Parliamentary Affairs Ananth Kumar, minister R.V. Deshpande among other local MLAs.
It was also announced that the Yeswanthpur-Yelahanka track along with Channasandra-Yelahanka tracks were upgraded with doubling and electrification at the cost of Rs 94.93 crore and Rs 107.67 crore respectively. The Yelahanka-Dharmavaram track was electrified at the cost of Rs 160.9 crore.
Connectivity, electrification a priority
“To the credit of the two MPs from Bengaluru, the railway budget share for Karnataka increased from Rs 909 crore in 2014 to Rs 1,300 crore in 2015 and again increased to Rs 2,779 crores in 2016, which is an increase of 300 per cent, and next year this will be even more,” Prabhu said. “The ministry is working at a bullet train’s pace, but the railway officials seem to be lagging behind with a passenger rail’s pace,” Mr. Prabhu remarked.
He said the focus of the ministry at present was on increasing investments in improving connectivity by doubling and tripling of rail lines so that the delays can be reduced and electrification of lines to reduce diesel usage cutting down pollution and leaving no carbon footprints.”
Extra train to Mangaluru soon
Speaking about the extra train between Bangalore-Mangalore that was announced in the previous rail budget, but yet not implemented - the union minister said the route had safety concerns in the way of land slides and possibilities of derailment as it passes through the Western Ghats.
The minister then urged the railway officials to get their technical team to work on the safety issues and resolve them with the Commission of Railway Safety (CRS) after which the train between Mangalore and Bengaluru can be commissioned, Prabhu said after the insistence of DV Sadananda Gowda who pointed out that around 400-500 buses ply between Mangaluru and Bengaluru on a daily basis.
Facelift for stations
“We are looking for development of existing railway stations/junctions with newer ones designed by way of Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) model which will replicate airport or metro stations,” Mr Prabhu said. Agreement for the first PPP model in Habibganj in New Bhopal is already signed and the station is getting a facelift and this can happen to every other stations and junctions, he added.
Spanish trains
“We are also looking at introducing high-speed trains without altering rail tracks. The Spanish Talgo train that is continuing with its trail runs at the Mathura-Palwal route is doing great. The train travels at the max speed of 180 kilometre per hour. Trial runs are being conducted with sand bags to see if the Spanish-made light-weight coaches can take the weight of passengers and manoeuvre turns and curves at high speeds,” Mr Prabhu said.
Once trial runs are successful there, we can look at starting trail runs not only for the Bangalore-Mysore corridor, but also consider Bangalore-Hubbali corridor, said Mr Prabhu when MP Ananth Kumar insisted. “If Talgo runs on the corridor, the journey time between Mysore and Bengaluru could be reduced to 1 hour and 40 minutes,” he added.

In its two years of existence, it’s the campaigns promoted by the government that have fared well on the platform
Forty-five per cent of all discussion posts on the MyGov platform — a social network built around governance issues — were about Smart Cities.
The platform, launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in July 2014, functions under the aegis of the Union Communications and Information Technology Ministry.
At
...

present, MyGov has around 35 lakh registered users. In the two years of its existence, there have been 582 discussions posts on the platform, garnering around 34 lakh comments.
However, the activity and engagement on posts is not uniformly distributed. Of the 582 posts on the MyGov website, 32 posts account for 72 per cent of all comments on the platform. Half the posts got fewer than 500 comments. In fact, 30 per cent of the posts have fewer than 100.
There are three major elements in getting traction on the platform, Gaurav Dwivedi, CEO of MyGov, told The Hindu.
First, promotion of the said campaign by the Ministry concerned. Second, the attractiveness of the subject to the citizen. Third, the willingness of citizens to devote time to the campaign and share their thoughts and ideas.
For instance, only 10 posts got more than a lakh comments, all asking for suggestions from citizens for drafting the ‘Smart City proposal’ for their cities. Posts on Bhopal, Kanpur, Allahabad, Indore and Jhansi gathered more than 1.5 lakh suggestions as comments.
“For the 98 shortlisted smart cities, there was a component of citizen feedback and engagement in the selection criteria for the next round. Plus, there were marks for quality of citizen engagement,” Mr. Dwivedi said. In places where municipal commissioners were more tech savvy, more traffic and engagement was observed, he added.
Forty-eight posts on MyGov platform were setup to identify 50 public buildings (in each city) that were frequently used by persons with disabilities and should be converted into fully accessible buildings. But this crowdsourcing campaign, launched by the Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities, received a lacklustre response. Only the post for the city of Bhopal got over 800 comments. 40 posts concerning other cities got fewer than 10 comments.
MyGov is experimenting with various other structures and methods for engaging citizens – apart from discussions – depending on the requirement of various ministries. Citizens are asked to take up real life tasks in the “do” section, information regarding work done by various Ministries is disseminated via blogs and infographics, polls and surveys are conducted for various issues.
Mr. Dwivedi said it was difficult to quantify and create metrics for citizen engagement. “It is not easy to set targets like the number of people who should be active on the platform. Unlike Twitter or Facebook, we have to evoke responses as participation on MyGov is voluntary,” he said. It is easy and quick to post a photograph or status when you are facing a problem, but discussing solutions about daily problems takes concentrated effort and time, which is what participation on MyGov is about, he added.
While some critics point out that policy discussions are not suited in Facebook or Twitter style setup of MyGov, Mr. Dwivedi said the new platform had to establish the credibility like various other methods of citizen engagement, which takes time. “Public discourse is not, and should not be limited to just one kind. The existence of MyGov doesn’t eliminate the existing offline methods of public consultation. It offers an additional digital medium,” he added.
Budget consultation
The budget consultation process was one of the success stories for the platform. In association with the Ministries of Railways and Finance, MyGov had solicited ideas from citizens for Railway and Union Budgets for two consecutive years. The Railways budget incorporated 10 ideas in 2015 and 15 in 2016, whereas the Union Budget took 10 suggestions in both years from MyGov.
One can expect an exponential growth in adoption and usage of the platform once people start witnessing the impact and result of their activities and engagement on MyGov, Mr. Dwivedi believes. “So has been the case for other social networks like Facebook. It should be no different for MyGov,” he said.

Mumbai-Ahmedabad high speed train fare to be less than airfare
New Delhi: Mumbai-Ahmedabad high speed rail corridor would be completed in six years and its fare will be less than airfare, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said on Wednesday.
Maintaining that the ambitious project is doable, Prabhu said in Lok Sabha during Question Hour that the high-speed train project would be cost-effective.
The high speed

bullet train is expected to cover 508 km between Mumbai and Ahmedabad in about two hours, running at a maximum speed of 350 kmph and operating speed of 320 kmph. At present, Duronto Express takes about seven hours to cover the distance between the two financial centres.
When it was pointed out that huge funds has been given for the project which might hamper those in other parts of the country, Prabhu said "there was no regional bias. Every state has got more than double than earlier."
The high speed rail project has been sanctioned with technical and financial assistance from the government of Japan and the joint feasibility study of the project has already been done by Japanese International Agency.
Estimated to cost about Rs 97,636 crore, 81 per cent of the funding for the 508 km long Mumbai-Ahmedabad high speed rail corridor project will come in form of a loan from Japan. The project cost includes possible cost escalation, interest during construction and import duties.
The project is being funded by Japan with a soft loan for 50 years at 0.1 per cent annual interest with 15 years' moratorium. Rolling stock and other equipment like signalling and power system will be imported from Japan as per the loan agreement.
Railways has spelt out its policy with regard to running of high speed and semi-high speed trains by identification of potential routes for both kinds of train services.
Prabhu said feasibility studies for other high speed corridors have been awarded to various railway companies.
Delhi-Mumbai high speed corridor has been awarded to the consortium of the Third Railway Survey and Design Institute Group Corporation (Chinese consultant) and Lahmeyer International from India.
Feasibility study of high speed corridors on Mumbai- Chennai, Delhi-Kolkata, Delhi-Nagpur and Mumbai-Nagpur have also been awarded to diffent global consultants.
Prabhu said railways have identified nine corridors for feasibility of semi-high speed rail.
The semi-high speed routes are Delhi-Chandigarh, Chennai-Bengaluru-Mysore, Delhi-Kanpur, Nagpur-Bilaspur, Mumbai-Goa, Mumbai-Ahmedabad, Chennai-Hyderabad and Nagpur-Secunderabd

​Railways All Set To Revamp Old Delhi Station
New Delhi: Entry to the Old Delhi railway station is set to become easier with the Delhi division of Northern Railway planning a makeover of the circulating area in front of the station to ease the way for cars and passengers. Among other things, the wall separating the station from the main road will be demolished to broaden the area and more than 500 vendors who have encroached on the footpath along the wall will be removed.
As planned, the access to the station

would be eased with the construction of foot-overbridges and car bays to allow passengers to alight. A multi-cuisine restaurant will also come up at the station, according to senior Railway officials.
The circulating area currently is separated from SP Mukherjee Marg by a boundary wall. This structure will be removed and others located adjacent to the boundary wall will be relocated to suitable places with the help of civic agencies.
"The redeveloped area will also consist of footpaths and pedestrian crossings for the movements of the pedestrians from the road side to the railway station," revealed Ajay Michael, PRO, Delhi Division, Indian Railways. "Vehicle bays will also be constructed on the station side for facilitating dropping off of passengers." He added that the cost of the project has been estimated at 16 crore. All work related to the railway land would be executed by the Railways for 4.86 crore, while the remaining work, such as the development of bus shelters on SP Mukherjee Road would be handled by the PWD and other agencies of the Delhi government.
Already, a part of the revamp has been completed, including the commissioning of six escalators, renovation of three public dormitories and some changes carried out to make the premises disabled-friendly. A new toilet is scheduled to come up near the second entry point on the Kashmere Gate side, as will a new waiting room on platform 7.
"The redevelopment of the circulating area of the station on SP Mukherjee Marg side has been taken up as a part of the project on streetscaping and urban renewal undertaken by the Shahjahanabad Redevelopment Corporation," said Michael. "The important feature of this plan is the seamless integration of the lanes of the circulating area with the road beyond."
The cost of the project has been estimated at 16 crore. All work related to the railway land would be executed by the railways for 4.86 crore, an official said

Speed on curve depends on the degree of curve. If Jap train negotiates a curve at 270 kmph then it must be a very mild curve like 1 degree or so. Theoretically high train speeds may be possible on sharp curves (which are abundant on I Rlys track) by providing excessive banking of tracks and/or excessive tilting of trains, but practically that ride will not be safe for train passengers.

​The 3rd Phase Talgo Trail MUM-DEL At Speeds Of Up To 220 Kmph.
Agra: The Spanish-made Talgo train coaches reached a speed of 180 kmph during the second phase of trials between Mathura and Palwal on Wednesday, covering a distance of 86 km in 39 minutes. In the process it broke the record by an Indian train, previously held by Gatimaan Express at 160 kmph.
"Wednesday's trial was conducted with empty coaches. We will later use sandbags placed on the seats to simulate passenger weight. The train ran continuously at 180 kmph

from Bhuteshwar to Rundhi stations, covering the distance in 39 minutes," said Dilip Kumar Singh, additional divisional railway manager (ADRM) of Agra.
Talgo is a leading Madrid-based manufacturer of semi-high speed (160-250 kmph) and high-speed (350 kmph) passenger trains. The nine-coach train used in Wednesday's trial was hauled by an Indian Railways' WDP-4 diesel engine with 4,500 HP capacity, manufactured at a Varanasi plant. The trial was supervised by engineers from Research Design & Standards Organisation (RDSO), Lucknow, and from Talgo.
"Today's successful achievement is a major milestone in railway history and it gets us closer to our dreams of having high-speed train service on the existing railway tracks," Singh added.
In the first phase of the trials held from May 29, the Spanish coaches were pulled at speeds between 80 and 115 kmph between Bareilly and Moradabad, a distance of 90 km. ​ "The feeling of running the train at such high speeds was amazing. Before the trial, we were a bit worried about the performance of the coaches at 180 kmph, but they ran exceptionally well, including on curves," said Vivek Sharma, second loco pilot in the engine of the train. Sharma has an experience of 26 years as a train driver.
Lead pilot Sunil Kumar Pathak was the other driver in the train and had, literally, a front-row seat during the record-breaking trial. "For me, the most striking part of the journey was the fact that an Indian diesel engine pulled the coaches at 180 kmph, a feat which no locomotive engine manufactured in the country had accomplished so far," said Pathak, who has been a train driver since 1985. ​ The nine-coach train consists of two executive class cars, four chair cars, a cafeteria, a power car and a tail-end coach for staff and equipment.
Talgo coaches are lightweight, made of aluminium and designed to run along curves without decelerating. The coaches weigh much less than an average Indian Railways coach and also consume 30% less energy, according to officials.
​The third phase of the trials will be conducted between Mumbai and New Delhi at speeds of up to 220 kmph to see the maximum and minimum time the train takes to cover the distance of 1,400 km, officials added. ​

मथुरा.स्पेन से लाई गई टेल्गो ट्रेन ने बुधवार को भारत में इतिहास रच दिया। देश में पहली बार 180 किमी प्रति घंटे की रफ्तार से कोई ट्रेन दौड़ी। मथुरा से पलवल तक 84 किमी का ट्रायल रन कामयाब रहा। टेल्गो ने भारत में अब तक की सबसे तेज ट्रेन गतिमान एक्सप्रेस को भी पीछे छोड़ दिया है। गतिमान की मैक्सिमम स्‍पीड 160 किमी प्रतिघंटा है। (चौथी स्‍लाइड में देखिए, ट्रैक पर दौड़ती टैल्‍गो ट्रेन का वीड‍ियो...)
भारतीय इंजन ने ट्रेन को दौड़ाया...
- ट्रेन के लोको पायलट सुनील कुमार पाठक ने बताया कि

इसकी मैक्सिमम स्‍पीड 180 किमी प्रति घंटा रही।
- इस स्‍पीड से टेल्गो ट्रेन को भारतीय डीजल इंजन डब्ल्यूडीसी-4 ने दौड़ाया।
8 बार स्पीड कम करनी पड़ी
- ट्रेन के एक अन्य लोको पायलट विवेक शर्मा ने बताया कि ब्रिज के नीचे और मोड़ पर मिले कॉशन की वजह से स्‍पीड को 8 बार कम करना पड़ा।
- 84 किमी के टेस्टिंग में 9 कोचों का इस्तेमाल किया गया।
- अब 26 जुलाई तक इसी स्पीड से ट्रेन का ट्रायल होगा।
- लगातार सफल ट्रायल होने के बाद दिल्ली से मुंबई के बीच इसका ट्रायल होगा।
पटरी पर जम्पिंग के साथ भी हुआ ट्रायल
- हाई स्‍पीड पर ट्रेन का जम्पिंग टेस्ट भी हुआ। आझई रेलवे स्टेशन के पास रेलवे ट्रैक पर 1 इंच मोटा और 6 इंच लंबा लोहे का टुकड़ा रखा गया।
- इसके बाद ट्रेन को इस पर दौड़ाया गया। ऐसी जांच इसलिए की गई, ताकि पता चल सके कि ट्रैक पर कोई ब्‍लॉकर आने पर हाई स्‍पीड में ट्रेन पर क्या असर हो सकता है।
गतिमान एक्सप्रेस को पीछे छोड़ा
- बता दें, भारत में अभी तक सबसे तेज गति से चलने वाली ट्रेन गतिमान एक्सप्रेस थी। दिल्ली (हजरत निजामुद्दीन स्टेशन) से आगरा तक चलने वाली इस ट्रेन की मैक्सिमम स्‍पीड 160 किमी प्रति घंटा है।
- गतिमान को ओएचई इंजन (बिजली से चलने वाला इंजन) से चलाया जाता है, जबकि टेल्गो को डीजल इंजन से दौड़ाया गया।
टेल्गो की खासियत क्‍या है ?
- 1942 से काम कर रही टेल्गो बेहतरीन पैसेंजर कोच बनाने के लिए जानी जाती है।
- नॉर्मल भारतीय कोच में दो पहिए एक ही धुरी पर होते हैं, जिससे जर्क पूरे कोच पर आता है।
- वहीं, टेल्गो के कोच में पहिए अलग-अलग धुरी से जुड़े होते हैं। इससे कोच में जर्क महसूस नहीं होता है।
- कंपनी ने अब तक 14 तरह के कोच बनाए हैं। ये कोच 380 किमी प्रति घंटे की स्‍पीड तक दौड़ सकते हैं।
- कोच एल्‍युमि‍नियम से बने होने के कारण बेहद हल्के हैं। इससे रफ्तार तेज है। इसकी सीट भी बेहद आरामदायक हैं।
- बुजुर्गों, प्रेग्नेंट महिलाओं और बच्चों को प्लैटफॉर्म पर उतरने में भी परेशानी नहीं होगी।
- इमरजेंसी ब्रेक लगने पर पैसेंजर्स को जर्क नहीं लगेगा।
पलवल से मथुरा के बीच क्‍यों हुआ ट्रायल?
- एडीआरएम एसपी सिंह ने बताया कि पलवल से मथुरा के बीच 3 ट्रैक हैं। इनमें से 1 ट्रैक को किसी भी वक्‍त के लिए रिजर्व रखा जा सकता है।
- गतिमान एक्‍सप्रेस के लिए ट्रैक को हाई स्‍पीड बनाने के लिए प्रति किमी 13.5 लाख रुपए खर्च हुए थे।
- इस ट्रैक के दोनों तरफ बाड़ लगाई जा चुकी है। ट्रैक बदले जा चुके हैं।
- इसी ट्रैक पर गतिमान एक्‍सप्रेस अपनी मैक्सिमम स्‍पीड 160 किमी प्रति घंटे की रफ्तार से लगातार दौड़ती है।
- यह ट्रैक 200 किमी प्रति घंटे से भी ज्‍यादा रफ्तार से दौड़ने वाली ट्रेनों के अनुकूल है।
भारत में क्‍या है ट्रेनों की स्‍पीड?
गतिमान एक्‍सप्रेस :160 km/h
भोपाल शताब्‍दी :दिल्‍ली टू आगरा 150 km/h, बाद में 140 km/h
राजधानी एक्‍सप्रेस :140 km/h
एक्‍सप्रेस, सुपरफास्‍ट ट्रेनें :90 km/h
पैसेंजर ट्रेन :60 km/h

If it introduced between Chennai- Banglore then it can cover distance in 2 hr 30 min easily. Even airline people switch to it.
But many developments takes 5-6 years to come south.

Onr trial roughly cost a few lakh Rs..jitne bhi trial karenge sabka paisa joda jayega in future when pass movement operates & thus fare of Talgo will be higher than Gatimaan & hence flop.

I think TALGO interior coach design can be adjusted to suit Indian needs. Like an economy class flight or a YUVA express then can have cramped up seats from moderate fares and comfortable 1A type seats for higher fares.

Duniya k sabse bade economist to aap hi hai ki bina train k start hue ye bata sakte hai ko wo flop ho jayege. Talgo Delhi- Mumbai route pe chalegi jis route pe koi bhi mode of transportation kabhi flop nahi hota or ispe yakkin nhi hai to dono Mumbai Rajdhani or August Kranti Rajdhani ki occupancy check ker lo. Aur ye jo talgo coaches aae hai ye Trial k liye hai, agar ye successful hote hai to Indian Railways apne requirement k hisab se Talgo se coaches banwayega or jisme sleeper coaches bhi honge. Itna negativity na rakho bhai.

It will be tough ask for govt to run TALGO trains cheaper than average flights in Rs 2500-3000 range. With more FDI coming in flights will get more cheaper as demand rises so Railways are gonna face tough times to find takers for service at par cost with flights.
