More than anything, the IR typifies the vast, creaking and dilapidated nature of India's infrastructure.
Its top managers have frequently red-signalled the crisis. A top official said: "In the final analysis, the performance of the organisation would be just at the bottomline and unless we are in a position to control the expenditure and increase the earnings on a sustained basis, survival for the organisation becomes a very difficult proposition". But the railways get by every year with huge dollops of government funding and increasingly by postponing vital investments. For instance, important decisions, such as the filling of tens of thousands of safety-related posts like gangmen, pointsmen, signalmen and assistant station masters, keeps getting delayed. The consequences of this are seen

To decongest Mumbai CST railway station, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu laid the foundation for two new terminal stations – one at Parel for suburban trains and the other at Panvel for long-distance trains – on Monday.
The Parel terminus will be constructed at a cost of ₹51 crore and the Panvel terminus at a cost of ₹154 crore.
The Panvel station will also have facilities for stabling trains, and four washing lines for maintaining coaches at Kalamboli near Panvel. Likely to start by March 2019, the terminal will be the first railway terminus

for Navi Mumbai.
The Parel facility will also take three years to complete, Prabhu said, adding that Parel had become the central point for Mumbai suburban travellers over the years and needed urgent attention. It will consist of one terminal line with platforms on both sides.
The suburban terminus is a part of Mumbai Urban Vikas Project (MUTP) Phase 2 for commissioning the 5{+t}{+h} and 6{+t}{+h} lines between Parel and Mumbai CST which has been targeted for completion by 2021 at a cost of ₹436 crore.

Union railway minister Suresh Prabhu said on Sunday that 48 stations will be redeveloped on the suburban network to provide better amenities to commuters. Prabhu, here to dedicate the 25 KV alternating current switch and introduction of 12-car services on Harbour line, said, "We will carry out the station redevelopment project with the state government's help."
The Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation (MRVC) had drawn up plans to redevelop some stations but the project was put on hold as the railway board came up with a uniform policy for station redevelopment across India. However, the list of stations did not include any from Mumbai suburban, so the project was put on hold due to lack of clarity.

MRVC official said, "These stations will require state government assistance in terms of floor space index (FSI), to make it commercially viable and the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation and local civic bodies' cooperation in Mumbai metropolitan region (MMR) for a better traffic management plan outside stations."
The redevelopment will include better land use to relocate stalls and booking offices outside platforms. The stations will be disabled-friendly and have clean toilets. Entry and exit points will be redesigned to ensure smooth dispersal of commuters, he added. A railway official said they were yet to finalise which stations will feature in the list.
Prabhu also said the railways plan to introduce superfast trains between Mumbai and Pune.
Central Railway's general manager S K Sood said the foundation stone-laying ceremony for Parel Terminus and Panvel coaching complex will be held on Monday. Tenders for the Rs 53 crore Parel Terminus, aimed at decongesting Dadar, have been awarded and work is likely to be completed in two years.
Sood said the Mail/Express and suburban corridors will be segregated after commissioning the fifth and sixth lines on CR. All platform designs, he said, will be similar to Metro platforms, eliminating the gap between platforms and footboards of trains. He also said all Harbour services will be 12-car in a month.

THE World Bank has agreed to provide a $US 500m seed capital loan with a seven-year repayment moratorium to kick-start Indian Railways' (IR) station redevelopment programme, which will be financed through a combination of intergovernmental agreements and public-private partnerships.
IR has already signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with French National Railways (SNCF) concerning the redevelopment of Ambala and Ludhiana stations in the north, while talks for similar tie-ups are underway with potential partner railways from Australia, Belgium, Germany, and China.
Draft tender documents for the modernisation of 400 category A1 and A

stations were published on IR's website last month and bids for the first group of stations will be submitted in June.
Over the last two years IR has signed MoUs with railways in 14 countries and several rounds of discussions have been held on station modernisation strategies have been completed. The Korean government has reportedly offered to invest Rs 40bn ($US 754.7m) in the redevelopment of New Delhi station.
Last year IR established the Station Development Corporation and recruited officials from two public sector bodies to manage activities.
As the programme involves multi-departmental and multi-sectoral cooperation, the Indian government has decided to set up a new and independent body to undertake station redevelopment projects. This organisation will not be headed by an IR official and will have representatives of all stakeholders in the execution and management of the projects.
In recent months the World Bank has held several workshops and meetings on India's station re-development potential, highlighting examples of successful station projects elsewhere in the world.

Ferozepur divisional railway manager (DRM) has barred am NGO from providing drinking water at Phagwara railway station, claiming it was doing so without permission. He also claimed water distributed as contaminated. “There is shortage of water at the railway station but that does not mean anyone can start providing drinking water to people. If someone falls sick or faces any problem after drinking this water, who will be responsible for that?”, DRM Anuj Prakash told PTI. “We have asked Janata Jal Committee, which is doing the water service, to come and meet us. They should discuss the matter and take the permission to continue the service,” he said. Prakash claimed the water which is distributed is suspected to be contaminated, which is why he stopped the practice. Advertisement: Replay Ad

committee has been distributing free drinking water to people at its own expense for the past 30 years at Phagwara railway station in Punjab. Meanwhile, local BJP leader Rajat Mohindru has alleged the move by the railway official was aimed at benefiting the private companies that sell bottled drinking water. “On one hand the railway station is facing water scarcity, and if an outfit is giving water to commuters, why does the DRM has any problem with that, no one has complained about their water in the past 30 years,” Mohindru said. “Such organisations should be encouraged so that people facing water shortage can avail it easily. I will also write a letter to the rail minister regarding this issue,” he said. Refuting the BJP leader’s allegations, Prakash said the water is unhygienic and the organisation is neither registered, nor they have any permission. “It is a completely illegal act and cannot be allowed,” he said.

Railway minister Suresh Prabhu laid the foundation stone for the Parel suburban terminus and the Panvel coaching complex from Dadar in Central Mumbai. "Railway has taken up this project to transform Parel railway station in Mumbai into a terminus and this is a part of our commitment to restructure and rejuvenate the Indian Railway systems in the country," Prabhu said.
Under the project, Central Railway will take up eight different infrastructure works from the first week of June.
According to a railway official, the works, worth Rs 51 crore, include the

construction of a terminal platform with cover overshed, widening of Down local line and Up local line platforms to 10 metres, providing a new foot over bridge (FOB) in the middle of the platform connecting East and West to all the platforms. Parel Terminus is a part of the fifth and sixth line project funded under the Mumbai Urban Transport Project-II.
The station needs upgradation in the wake of mushrooming corporate offices in Parel which have led to huge growth in the number of train passengers.
The new coaching complex at Panvel envisages setting up a full-fledged Panvel terminus and a new line from Panvel and Thane stations to the new airport site on the lines of the airport express in New Delhi.
Maharashtra Minister of Transport Divakar Raote, Mumbai Mayor Snehal Ambekar, MPs Kirit Somaiya, Kapil Patil, Hussain Dalvai, Gopal Shetty, Ajay Chaudhari and General Manager of Central Railway, Sunil Kumar Sood along with other senior railway officials were present on the occasion. .
