As it is anyway by-passing TPTY, AJJ-CGL route can also be considered. MAS passengers can use the EMU service from both AJJ and CGL to reach Chennai.

Prabhu said the ministry fast-tracked 7,000-km-long doubling projects and 4,000-km gauge conversion projects by providing adequate funds.
New Delhi: Indian Railways achieved an earnings growth of 14.54 per cent in the first quarter of the current financial year even as working expenses grew 4.22 per cent, lower than the budgeted estimate of 7.68 per cent, Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu said. While Prabhu did not share specific details of the earnings and the expenses during the quarter, the announcement marks the first time the Railways has announced its quarterly growth figures, a key step to bolstering the national transporter’s financial profile amid the huge requirement for fund raising from the market.
“In the current financial year, a plan outlay of Rs 1 lakh crore has been made. The implementation of Budget

announcements is making steady progress and 79 announcements have already been implemented. I’ve decided to regularly present the performance of Railways in every quarter,” Prabhu said in a letter to the media. He, however, did not mention the low volume growth, particularly in the passenger segment, registered of late.
The ministry spent Rs 1,045 crore on doubling projects in the first quarter compared to the targeted Rs 835 crore; Rs 1,557 crore on new lines compared to the targeted Rs 1,189 crore; Rs 690 crore on gauge conversion compared to the target of Rs 637 crore; and Rs 372 crore on electrification of network compared to the targeted Rs 321 crore.
“The ministry achieved a total capital expenditure of Rs 17,734 crore during the quarter, 134 per cent more than the projected Rs 13,231 crore,” he said. Railways commissioned 108 km of new lines between Agra and Etawah in the three months from April to June 2015. Also, the 122-km-long gauge conversion project was commissioned from Lehar to Iskar in Rajasthan. In addition, 150 km doubling works were commissioned by Railways to de-congest network, a major focus area of this year’s Budget, during the quarter.
Prabhu said the ministry fast-tracked 7,000-km-long doubling projects and 4,000-km gauge conversion projects by providing adequate funds.
To further increase the pace of project implementation, the rail ministry said it had expedited the appraisal process involving NITI Aayog and the finance ministry, apart from floating tenders in advance. Indian Railways had in the last financial year achieved an operating ratio of 91.3.

Pune: The National Green Tribunal (West Zone) has directed the environment directorate of the railway ministry to file a reply on the issue of direct discharge through toilets on the Indian Railways system which leads to massive pollution, an activist said on Tuesday.
“The NGT has taken serious cognizance of our environment interest litigation (EIL) which points out how nearly 4,000 tonnes of human waste is dumped daily through the ‘open discharge system’ used on Indian Railways,” said lawyer Asim Sarode.
The NGT recently asked the railway ministry to file its reply and remain present before the tribunal on Octpber 1, in the EIL filed through NGO Sahyog Trust’s socio-legal analyst Rama Sarode and her team comprising Mukta Sathe, Tushar Wayal, Sanjay Jadhav and Shreyas Atre.

The petition demanded that the existing toilet systems must be replaced with eco-friendly alternatives like bio-toilets.
The EIL said pollution was not limited only to railway tracks, but surroundings like water bodies, rivers, atmosphere when faecal matter discharged causes severe pollution and health hazards.
“In fact, the toilets in the Indian Railway systems have become the biggest mobile source of environmental pollution with this daily hazard dumped all over the country where thousands of trains ply,” Sarode said.
Citing a CAG report, Sarode said that despite two decades of conducting trials with different models of ‘green toilets’, the Indian Railways have failed to finalise the suitable technology and implement it, though the deadline was 2007.
Even the installation of bio-toilets, which converts excreta into neutral water using a form of bacteria has been dissatisfactory with only 10 percent work completed so far, he added.
Besides stopping the present form of direct discharge, the EIL urged the railway ministry to appoint only those coach manufacturers who can incorporate eco-friendly toilets into the coach design, and cover all water bodies on which railway tracks pass to prevent the discharge of human waste into the fresh water below.

very illogical comparison, here all the vehicles will be made to clear the road . Its because of the emergency situation that it reached this much fast and not because of other things. Dont compare roadways and railways . Each has it own pros and cons
