Several passenger and express trains in Ahmedabad-Mumbai route have been running behind schedule due to waterlogged tracks, as heavy rain continued to pound southern Gujarat for the past 12 hours.
The rains that threw normal life out of gear in places like Valsad, Navsari and Surat also inundated major highways connecting the state with Mumbai.
As many as 14 villages in Umargam have been marooned and cut-off, prompting district administration to dispatch teams of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) to rescue people stranded there.
Valsad recorded 12 inches of rain on Monday night, which inundated low lying areas and threw traffic out of gear.

અમદાવાદ તા. 29 જુલાઈ, 2014
વલસાડમાં પડી રહેલા ભારે વરસાદના કારણે ટ્રેન વ્યવહાર પણ ખોરવાયો છે. છેલ્લા 24 કલાકથી સતત વરસી રહેલા વરસાદથી કારણે ત્રણ ટ્રેનો રદ કરવામાં આવી છે. જેમાં વલસાડ-અમદાવાદ લોકલ ટ્રેન, ઇન્ટરસીટી ટ્રેન અને વલસાડ-દાહોદ ટ્રેનનો સમાવેશ થાય છે.
વલસાડના તીથલ રોડ પર ગોઠણસમા પાણી ભરાઈ ગયા છે. વલસાડમાં સોમવાર રાતથી મંગળવાર સવાર સુધી પડેલા ભારે વરસાદના કારણે વલસાડ રેલવે સ્ટેશન અને રેલવે ટ્રેક પર પાણી

ભરાઈ ગયા છે. જેના કારણે અમદાવાદ-સુરત-મુંબઈ ટ્રેન વ્યવહારને માઠી અસર પડી છે. રેલ્વે તંત્રને મુંબઈ તરફથી આવતી અને મુંબઈ જતી તમામ ટ્રેનોને અટકાવવા અને ધીમી ગતિએ ચલાવવાની ફરજ પડી છે.

ધોધમાર વરસાદને પગલે ભાવનગર-બાંદ્રા એક્સપ્રેસ, કચ્છ એક્સપ્રેસ, ભુજ-દાદર એક્સપ્રેસ, બિકાનેર-બાંદ્રા એક્સપ્રેસ, ભુજ-બાંદ્રા એક્સપ્રેસ, સૌરાષ્ટ્ર એક્સપ્રેસ, કર્ણાવતી-શતાબ્દી અને રાજકોટ એક્સપ્રેસ જેવી મોટાભાગની મુંબઈ જતી કે આવતી ટ્રેનોને ધીમી ચલાવવામાં આવી રહી છે અથવા કોઈ સ્ટેશને અટકાવવામાં આવી છે. જેના કારણે આ તમામ ટ્રેનો મોડી ચાલી રહી છે.
ભારે વરસાદને કારણે આજે ગુજરાતમાં ઘણી ટ્રેનો રદ્દ થઈ
-> મોટાભાગની ટ્રેનો મોડી
-> સુર્યનગરી એક્સપ્રેસ સવારે 7:30 વાગ્યે ઉપડે તેની જગ્યાએ સુરતથી દોઢ કલાક મોડી ઉપડી
-> સતાબ્દી એક્સપ્રેસ પણ દોઢ કલાક મોડી
-> ગુજરાત એક્સપ્રેસ દોઢ કલાક મોડી
-> ગઈ કાલે ગુજરાત ક્વીનને સુરત સ્ટેશને જ રોકી દેવામાં આવી હતી અને બાદમાં આજે સવારે ટ્રેન સુરતથી ઉપડી
-> હાવડા એક્સપ્રેસ અઢી કલાક મોડી
-> ડીલક્ષ એક્સપ્રેસ ટ્રેન 45 મીનીટ મોડી
-> જ્યારે દાહોદ ઈન્ટરસીટી અને વિરમગામ પેસેન્જર ટ્રેનોને રદ કરવામાં આવી છે

મુંબઇ-અમદાવાદ ટ્રેનને દોઢ કલાક રોકી રખાતા મુસાફરોનો હલ્લો

ઉશ્કેરાયેલા ૨૦૦ મુસાફરો સ્ટેશન માસ્ટરની ઓફિસમાં ઘુસી ગયાઃસ્થિતિ તંગ બનતા ટ્રેનને
અમદાવાદ,સોમવાર
મુંબઇ-અમદાવાદ પેસેન્જર ટ્રેનને નડિયાદના ઉત્તરસંડા રેલવે સ્ટેશન ખાતે સોમવારે બપોરે સતત દોઢ કલાક સુધી રોકી રાખવામાં આવતા ઉશ્કેરાયેલા મુસાફરોએ સ્ટેશન માસ્ટરનો ઘેરો ઘાલીને આક્રોશ વ્યક્ત કર્યો હતો. હલ્લો મચાવીને ૨૦૦થી પણ વધુ મુસાફરો સ્ટેશન માસ્ટરની ઓફિસમાં ઘૂસી ગયા હતા અને ટ્રેનને આ રીતે રોકી રાખીને હજારો મુસાફરોને રોજ બાનમાં લેવામાં આવતા હોવાની ફરિયાદ સાથે રોષભેર રજૂઆત કરી આક્રોશ ઠાલવ્યો હતો.મામલો ગંભીર બનતો જોઇને આ ટ્રેનને સત્વરે સિગ્નલ આપી દેવામાં આવતા સ્થિતિ વધુ વણસતા અટકી હતી.

આજે બપોરે સવા બાર વાગ્યે મુંબઇ-અમદાવાદ પેસેન્જર ટ્રેનને સિગ્નલ ન મળતા સાઇડમાં ઉભી રાખી દેવામાં આવી હતી.સતત દોઢ કલાક સુધી આ ટ્રેનને સિગ્નલ જ ન આપવામાં આવતા રોજ અપડાઉન કરતા મુસાફરો ઉશ્કેરાઇ ગયા હતા અને તેમણે ટ્રેનમાં જ હલ્લો મચાવી દીધો હતો.આ ટ્રેનને રોજ મોડી પાડવામાં આવતી હોવા અન કલાકો સુધી વિવિધ સ્ટેશનો પર સાઇડમાં ઉભી રાખી દેવાથી તંગ આવી જઇને તેઓ રેલવે સ્ટેશને સ્ટેશન માસ્ટરની ઓફિસમાં ઘુસી ગયા હતા.૨૦૦થી પણ વધુ મુસાફરોએ દેકારો મચાવીને ટ્રેનને રોકી રાખવાનું કારણ જાણવવા સ્ટેશન માસ્ટરને કહેતા તેમણે સમારકારમનું રૃટીન બહાનું આગળ ધરી દીધુ હતું.
જોકે ઉપસ્થિત મુસાફરોનો રોષ જોતા તેમણે આ ટ્રેનને તાત્કાલિક ધોરણે સિગ્નલ આપી દઇને રવાના કરવાની ફરજ પડી હતી.આણંદથી આ ટ્રેન ૧૨ વાગ્યે ઉપડીને પોણા એક વાગ્યે તેનો નડિયાદ આવવાનો સમય છે જે આજે અઢી વાગ્યે નડિયાદ પહોંચી હતી.આ લોકલ ટ્રેનમાં વડોદરા , આણંદ અને નડિયાદ સહિતના વિસ્તારોમાંથી અમદાવાદ નોકરી કે વેપાર ધંધો કરવા આવતા રોજીંદા મુસાફરો મુસાફરી કરે છે.આ ટ્રેન લોકલ હોવાથી તેને વારંવાર અધવચ્ચે અટકાવી દેવામાં આવતી હોવાથી મુસાફરો પરેશાન થઇ ગયા છે.ટ્રેનને નિયમિત સમયસર ચલાવવાની માંગણી પણ રેલવેતંત્ર ધ્યાને લેતું નથી.આ ટ્રેનને તેના નિયત સમયાનુસાર ચલાવવામાં આવે તેવી માંગણી ઉઠવા પામી છે.

BHUBANESWAR: Southern and western pockets of Odisha were pounded by heavy shower as the low pressure off the State’s coast remained stationary. Jeypore received a whopping 270 mm rain in the last 24 hours, the highest in the State. The district headquarters town Koraput also recorded 175 mm rain which led to mudslide affecting normal life and even hitting train services in the region.The Durg-Jagdalpur Express, carrying 77 passengers, was detained en route late last night as railway tracks along Koraput-Jagdalpur section were blocked following a mudslide caused by heavy shower. With trees and boulders preventing passage of trains, the train was detained at about 1.30 am.
The East Coast Railway (ECoR) sent a relief train to bring back the stranded passengers to Jarati station. Later, arrangements were made for their transportation to different destinations on road.

The mudslide affected train traffic movement along the route. Though Railway teams reached the site on foot, the tracks could be cleared only by Monday afternoon. Senior Railway officials from Koraput and Jagdalpur also reached the site to clear the obstruction on track and resume train operations. Officials from Visakhapatnam are also on their way.
The ECoR sources said damage to track was huge but restoration operation was underway on a war-footing. Normal train movement will resume on Tuesday.
At least three trains - Jagdalpur-Bhubaneswar Hirakhand Express, Jagdalpur-Howrah Samaleswari Express and Jagdalpur-Durg Express were cancelled between Jagdalpur and Koraput because of the disruption on Monday. Five more trains were also regulated.
Meanwhile, the weather office said the weather system will continue to trigger rain in south Odisha on Tuesday.
The rainfall zone, however, will shift to western and central Odisha before reaching north Odisha in next 48 hours.
Large parts of Koraput, Malkangiri, Nabarangpur and Kalahandi districts received heavy shower in the last 24 hours due to the low pressure. Bhawanipatna with 170 mm, Bargarh with 120 mm and Narla with 110 mm topped the rainfall chart after Jeypore and Koraput.

PUNE: A major tragedy was averted when a three-wheeler driverless tempo hit a boom barrier at the railway crossing near Dapodi station and crashed into a goods train heading towards Pune.The driver had got out of the stalled tempo and was pulling the starter cord from behind when the vehicle, which was in gear, sprung to life and hit the train. The accident took place around 9.15am on Sunday.The tempo, which was cut into two, could have caused the train to derail. Rail traffic on the Pune-Mumbai route was disrupted for about 15 minutes following the accident, a central railway official said.The tempo driver fled after the accident. The railway authorities have given the tempo's registration number to the regional transport office (RTO) to get information about the owner and the driver.

accident, told TOI that the barrier was down at the crossing as the train was about to reach Dapodi station. "The tempo driver had stopped the vehicle near the barrier when the engine shut off. The driver got down to pull the starter cord located at the back of the tempo when all of a sudden the engine started. As the tempo was in first gear, it rammed into the barrier and also hit the train," he said."Panic spread at the busy crossing following the incident. A large number of people gathered at the spot. The train too made an unscheduled halt at the Dapodi railway station," Bhosale said.
A railway officer said the gate was closed for the day to replace the damaged barrier. "The railway protection force (RPF) is investigating the case," he added.
On May 3, three people, including two women, were killed and 11 others were injured, two of them critically, when the Secunderabad-Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT) Duronto Express collided with a tractor trolley at a manned crossing about 40km from Pune.
The tractor had two trolleys attached to it and was ferrying 20 sugarcane harvesters for work at Khamgaon village located on the other side of railway track. The accident occurred at gate number 10 at Khamgaon phata near Yavat, when the gate's barrier opened soon after a goods train travelling towards Daund had crossed. The tractor-trolley was the last among all vehicles to cross the gate. The first trolley had just cleared the track but the second trolley was hit by the Duronto Express.

Kochi: Though the state government has not framed the rules for the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013 (LARRA), the new order issued in favour of the ongoing acquisitions will bring a fresh lease of life to various projects, including the Kochi Metro Rail.
Projects such as Kochi Metro were hit by land acquisition hurdles owing to the delay in framing new policies for the amended Land Acquisition Act. The Act of 1894 was amended only last year and LARRA came into force in January 2014.
However, majority of the government agencies were not in a position to carry out the land acquisition as per the new Act as the State Government has not framed the rules. As a consequence land acquisition of various

projects came to a standstill.
In an Order issued earlier this month, the Government clarified that in cases where 4(1) Notification have been issued but declarations under section 6 (Declaration that land is required for a public purpose) have not been issued, the declaration under LA Act 1894 is to be issued immediately so that the acquisition proceedings can be completed.
In its order, the Government also clarified that in cases where the land value is already fixed, an agreement should be entered into with the land owners that further compensation, if any, will be paid only after framing rules and regulations for LARRA.
“In cases where declarations under section 6 have already been issued, land value has to be fixed by the District Level Purchase Committee (DLPC) and complete acquisition procedures without further delay,” the Government Order stated.
The new order will give a fresh breath of life to the Kochi Metro Rail project, for which the authorities have already acquired 34 hectares of the total 40 hectares required.
For the remaining 6 hectares, the authorities are facing many stumbling blocks, the main one being the delay in framing the rules under LARRA.
With the State Government issuing the new order, the Agency believes that they will be able to complete the land acquisition procedures by August, as per their scheduled deadline.
“We have initiated proceedings to complete the land acquisition of the Metro Rail project as per the new Government Order. It is expected to be completed within the stipulated time,” Ernakulam District Collector M G Rajamanickam told
