Before the arrival of monsoon in Konkan region, Konkan Railway (KR) has carried out safety works on the Kolad-Thokur route to avert any possible security incidents.
The 741-km long route of Konkan Railway connects Maharashtra, Goa and Karnataka, as it passes through mountainous terrain and crosses rivers, necessitating need for careful attention to train operations.
About 950 personnel would be deployed to patrol the Konkan Railway route during monsoon, a statement said.

patrolling would be carried out in vulnerable areas and stationary watchmen would be deployed for 24 hours at critical locations, it said.
Speed restrictions would be imposed at certain locations, besides attention being paid to drain cleaning, it said.
Instructions have been issued to loco drivers to run at a reduced speed of 40 kilometres per hour in case of heavy rainfall when visibility is reduced, it said.
Medical vans for emergency aid and treatment would be available at Ratnagiri and Verna stations, it said.
Emergency Communication (EMC) sockets have been provided at a distance of average one kilometre along the Konkan Railway route, which would enable patrolmen, watchmen and other field maintenance staff to be able to contact the Station Master and Train Controllers in emergency situations, it said.
LED signals are being provided in a phased manner for better signal visibility. The monsoon time-table would be effected from June 10 to October 31, it said.

NEW DELHI:  HIGHLIGHTS Air India flight tickets for Rajdhani waitlist passengers through IRCTC Rs. 2,000 for 2-tier & 3-tier AC passengers; free upgrade for 1-tier AC Applicable for destinations covered by Air India flight routes
The Maharaja will soon come to help wait-listed passengers of Rajdhani trains as such travellers will be provided with the option of taking an Air India flight to their destination by paying marginally extra.
Air India and IRCTC have already entered into a pact for the proposed arrangement which is expected to be in place "within a week",

the carrier's chief Ashwani Lohani told news agency PTI.
Under the proposed arrangement, people who have unconfirmed tickets across classes on Rajdhani trains would have the choice of boarding an Air India flight, provided the airline has services in the particular train route chosen by the passenger.
Air India tickets would be offered to such passengers through IRCTC.
Mr Lohani, who is Air India Chairman and Managing Director, said details are being worked out and the arrangement is expected to be in place "within a week".
The wait-listed passengers of AC First Class of Rajdhani trains would not have to pay any additional amount in case they decide to take an Air India flight.
In the case of those booked on Rajdhani Second and Third AC classes, the passengers would have to pay up to Rs. 2,000 per ticket as additional amount for flying Air India, Mr Lohani said.
"The details are being worked out and we hope to have this in place within a week," Mr Lohani, who himself is a Indian Railways Service (IRS) officer, said.
The latest move is expected to help Air India in filling up more seats on its planes amid the carrier working on ways to turnaround its fortunes.
Meanwhile, Air India is chalking out ambitious expansion plan to operate more number of smaller aircraft in various states as they look to increase regional air connectivity.
In this regard, Air India's wholly-owned subsidiary Air Alliance plans to increase the number of ATRs in its fleet to 35 in the next four years.
Currently, Alliance Air has seven ATRs in its fleet, including two ATR-42 that are to be phased this fiscal. It expects to have at least 18 ATR-72 planes by March 2017.
Mr Lohani along with senior officials today held deliberations with representatives from at least 16 states, most of whom also expressed willingness to provide viability gap funding to the carrier.
"Several state governments have asked Air India to look at launching virgin routes connecting different cities in their respective states," Mr Lohani said after the meeting.

NEW DELHI: Having already expanded its influence in Nepal with road and rail links through Tibet, China is looking to stretch its rail network to Bihar. The move is a bid to improve connectivity with India and South Asia, as reported by state-run Chinese media on Tuesday.
Reports suggest that a cross-border railway link to the Rasuwagadhi area in Nepal has already been discussed by the two countries, with the rail expected to reach the Nepal border by 2020. This rail line will allow China to have quick access to India as Birgunj, which borders Bihar is only 240 km away from Rasuwagadhi, the article said. For Bihar, trade with China through the rail link will be easier along the route than through

Kolkata, saving time, cost and distance, it said.
“The railroad connection to China not only is important for Nepal and Nepalese people’s future development, but also has the capacity to build connectivity with the whole of South Asia. The government of Nepal has the chance to make history,” the article said. Bihar’s Rasuwagadhi border point is a reasonable distance from Kathmandu but the district is a very popular site for tourists, thanks to its pilgrimage routes. As it is not very densely populated, empty land is available.
Meanwhile, President Pranab Mukherjee reached Guangzhou in China on a four-day visit that will see significant political and economic pushes to bilateral ties while irritants like Beijing’s opposition to India’s NSG membership and the blocking of a UN bid to blacklist JeM chief Masood Azhar will also be discussed.

will be available on the mobile number which was given at the time of booking.
Confirmed tickets can be cancelled by dialling 139 or through IRCTC website four hours before the scheduled departure while RAC and wait-listed tickets can be cancelled up to half an hour befor the train's departure.
"Earlier, cancelling the counter tickets used to be more cumbersome than booking them. This facility will bring relief to thousands of passengers," the railway minister told reporters here.
On the occasion, the minister also flagged 'Roll-on Roll-off' service from Bihta to Turki station in Muzaffarpur district of Bihar through video conferencing.
"After consultation with truck operators who transport sand from North Bihar to South Bihar through road bridges, it was decided to operate 'Ro-Ro' service across the Digha Bridge," the statement said.
Under this scheme the truck would be moved on the rakes to avoid congestion on the roads, it added.
The minister said that the services would be extended to cover more commodities and destinations in future.
"All these schemes were announced in the budget speech. Usually, the promises are forgotten after the speech but this government is committed to fulfill the promises made in the budget," Prabhu said.

With over 7,000 stations, India has one of the world's largest railway networks. India has one of the world's largest railway networks with over seven thousand stations. To ensure safety and better coordination of train movements, the stations are being upgraded with world class signaling technology. On May 18, the TVM Signalling and Transportation Systems Private Limited (TSTS), a subsidiary company of Kyosan, Japan inaugurated K5BMC (Kyosan) Electronic interlocking System at Nagasamudram railway station in Andhra Pradesh.
Senior railway officials and company representatives of TSTS and Kyosan India were present on the occasion. Kyosan is excited about providing world-class technology to Indian railways. "Next year is Kyosan Japan's 100th anniversary. We are very keen to contribute to Indian railways for its rapid

progress," said Managing Director Kyosan India Pvt. Ltd., Heita Takeyama. "The Kyosan technology, I found very compact, easily maintainable and the fault diagnosis is very systematic from system level to card level, card level to component level and compact level to various instructions which are very easily understandable and our ESMs are very easy to maintain the system," said Chief Signal and Telecom Engineer South West Railway, India, Elavarasan M. TSTS provides indoor and outdoor interlocking systems for small and major stations. Since it began operations some five years ago, the company has completed more than 265 stations commissioning. The company's interlocking system is based on proven EI system K5BMC from Kyosan Electric Manufacturing Company, Japan. Its I/O controller can be used as object controller and hence, thus minimizing use of copper cables. The electronic interlocking system has reduced complexity of the system and brought in cost effectiveness and components' reuse. "Everything will be digitalized so they will have a copy of whatever is being implemented. So if one computer fails, they can copy the same programme in another computer and kept running. Now, if the mechanical panel fails to some reason so they have to give order for another mechanical panel. You have to remove this and put the new panel that is very cumbersome," added Managing Director TVM Signalling and Transportation Systems Pvt. Ltd., Gopalakrishnan P. Upgradation of technology at railway stations across India will enhance the efficiency of trains and minimize accidents. Many more railway stations across India are awaiting to switch to advanced signaling system. Once upgraded, it will help improve the railway services and enhance safety of passengers. Japanese companies are truly making a mark with their innovative technology. In Singapore Rinnai Holdings (Pacific) Pvt. Ltd. was awarded from the Build Environment Industry (BEI) ASIA award of 2015 / 2016. Established in 1920 as a manufacturer of gas appliances-mainly water heaters and kitchen appliances, for almost a hundred years, Rinnai Group has upheld its corporate missing of providing comfortable lifestyle by offering heating solutions to society through its business activities. The Japanese innovation and technology has improved the social life.

The government has earmarked a long-term loan of US $500 million, with a moratorium on interest payment for seven years, for redeveloping eight railway stations, including those in Chandigarh and Mohali.
A decision on modernising the Ambala and Ludhiana railway stations on the basis of government-to-government long-term funding by the French national railways (SNCF) has already been taken.
“The ministry intends to rope in the World Bank for a $500-million loan for redeveloping the stations. This will be in addition to the Ambala and Ludhiana stations for which the French Rail Corporation has

been allotted consultancy,” an official said.
If everything goes well, the Railway Ministry will soon hand over the stations at Chandigarh, Mohali (Punjab), Habibganj (Lucknow), Bijwasan and Anand Vihar (Delhi), Surat, Gandhinagar (Gujarat) and Shivaji Nagar (Mumbai) to the largest public sector construction company (NBCC) to turn these into world-class facilities.
A Cabinet note in this regard has already been initiated.
The ministry will next month come out with a modal document approved by the Railway Board, which would be the basis for private players to become a part of the exercise for redevelopment of stations to world-class standards. “After the Modal Document is made available to public in June, the zonal railways will begin inviting proposals from the private players to take part in the redevelopment exercise,” said the official.
The Habibganj station will be the first to be awarded to a private player for redevelopment. The Railways has constituted Indian Railway Station Development Corporation (IRSDC), which will be the nodal agency to execute the redevelopment of the station project to the world-class status.
According to the plan, the redevelopment of stations would constitute not only better facilities there but would also include developing the area into a commercial and residential hub, the official said, adding that all these stations would have separate departure and arrival lounges on the lines of modern airports, which would help the Railways better manage passenger movements.

The length of the railway line will be 264.6 km. The completion period of the project will be five years.
The 3rd line is an alternative route to over-burdened existing line. This link also opens an alternative route to oversaturated Kharagpur Jharsuguda section Howrah-Mumbai Grand Trunk Route and Howrah-Chennai section main line. Rayagada and Kalahandi districts of Odisha and

Vizianagaram and Babbili districts of Andhra Pradesh would be benefitted through this project.
Background:
Vizianagaram and Titlagarh is a double line non electrified section of Jharsuguda-Vizianagaram line. The section is oversaturated with present capacity utilization of 106% and there is a huge detention to rolling stock. Average number of trains handled per day is 47 trains each way which includes 27 pairs of passenger trains and 20 pairs of Goods train. After industrialization between Jharsuguda-Rengali, and Talcher-Angul-Dhenkanal, 3rd line between Vizianagaram and Titlagarh is necessary to overcome the goods traffic in near future.
