CEO says company exploring role of electric vehicles in public commuting and goods transport
Mahindra Reva Electric Vehicles Private Limited, a part of Mahindra Group, is studying the feasibility of providing feeder services at metro rail stations with its eight-seater electric Maxximo (e-Maxximo) vans, according to its chief executive officer Arvind Mathew.
“We are exploring the role of EVs (electric vehicles) in public commuting and goods transport. Right now, we are working with various state governments, including Delhi and Hyderabad, to see whether providing feeder services at Metro stations with EVs will make sense. This, however, is still in the planning stage,” he said, adding that the company had already taken up a pilot project at the Taj Mahal zero-emission corridor with four e-Maxximos.

Announcing the launch of the all-electric, fully-automatic electric car Mahindra e20 in the Hyderabad market on Tuesday, Mathew said the launch of FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of EVs) scheme by the Union ministry of heavy industries and enterprises would provide the necessary impetus to the EV ecosystem.

The FAME scheme, which envisages spending Rs 795 crore over the next six years to promote the electric vehicle industry in India, offers incentives on electric and hybrid vehicles of up to Rs 29,000 for bikes and Rs 1.38 lakh for cars.
“The market for EVs is now looking up and a lot of global OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) are keen to bring their products to India,” Mathew said.
Mahindra Reva, founded in 1994 as the Reva Electric Car Company, was a JV between the Maini Group of Bengaluru and AEV LLC of the US. In May 2010, the Mahindra Group acquired a majority stake in the company, which was then renamed Mahindra Reva Electric. It has so far sold 5,500 units of Reva, and is currently selling 100 units each month.

There are about 15 stations between Delhi and Palwal including Nizamuddin, Tughalakabad, Faridabad and Ballabgarh which will be all covered under the paperless ticketing system for local travellors, the official added. Developed by Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) “utsonmobile” – the paperless unreserved ticketing feature in mobile application aims to eliminate the need for printing of unreserved tickets.
The App, which is for both Android and Windows platforms, can be downloaded from Google Play Store or Windows Store and used by the user. The application provides necessary on-screen alerts to guide the passenger during the booking process.
However, ticket windows will also be made available for passengers despite the operation of paperless mobile ticket system in the suburban section. Such an initiative is already being tried on Egmore-Tambram suburban section in Chennai and Churchgate-Dahanu section in Mumbai and Delhi-Palwal will be the first in the north zone.
It was a budget proposal to provide paperless tickets in unreserved segment and we have to implement it in all suburban sections across the country, the official said.

Yesterday (3:44PM)  Demand for formation of Bhagalpur Railway Division flares up once again ahead of Modi’s visit (www.railnews.co.in)

Bhagalpur (BGP): Unhappy over the inordinate delay in upgrading Bhagalpur railway station to divisional railway headquarters status, the residents of Bhagalpur now pin their hope on Narendra Modi’s first visit to Bihar on July 25 after his becoming Prime Minister. They hope the PM will undo the injustice done to the region since long by setting up a railway division in Bhagalpur during his visit to Muzaffarpur on Saturday.
The demand for divisional status to Bhagalpur railway station can be traced back to the establishment of Eastern Railways in 1952. The railway division at Malda (West Bengal), under which Bhagalpur railway station comes, was created in 1984. Bhagalpur railway station is the highest revenue earner under Malda railway division. Taking the fact into consideration, the then railway minister Lalu Prasad (in UPA-I government) had laid foundation of railway division in Bhagalpur

on March 1, 2009. Prasad had announced that the railways will spend Rs 2 crore on the project. An officer-on-special duty (OSD) was also posted to look after development works related to the proposed railway division.
But, after the change of guards in the ministry of railways (that went to Trinamool Congressbetween May 2009 to September 2012 in UPA-II government), work related to the proposed railway division at Bhagalpur came to standstill.
The officials so posted were also withdrawn subsequently. Hopes of the people of the region were rekindled when the minister of state for railways Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary visited Bhagalpur in December 2012 and categorically pronounced that the division will become a reality as envisaged by then railway minister Lalu Prasad. Chowdhary reiterated his commitment for the same during his second official visit on November 27, 2013 but in vain.
If at all PM Narendra Modi cares enough for Bihar, he should immediately take steps to rectify the injustice done to Bhagalpur region since 1984 and announce railway division at Bhagalpur, said social activist Zeejah Hussain adding it will add to the stature of PM who appears to be development-oriented. IMA president Dr Shailesh Chandra Jha also echoed similar views. “We hope PM Modi does justice to the region by announcing divisional status to Bhagalpur railway station,” said a businessman Binod Agarwal.
BJP national spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain says the issue is pertinent for the people of this region.

Chennai: Southern Railway is gradually introducing GPS-based passenger information system in suburban trains. In May, the facility was introduced in one suburban train which is run on Moore Market Complex-Tiruvallur route.
This helps commuters find out which station is approaching when they are inside a crowded train.
It comprises a digital board where station names will run as a scroll accompanied by an announcement. With this, the number of EMUs and MEMUs with this facility has gone up to 40 in the zone, said a press release.
