had made some changes in these coaches in designing of coupler system for more smoother ride than Shatabdi and Rajdhani coaches, installation of smoke and fire detection system and automatic sliding of inner doors besides Passengers information system.
The GM said the approximate cost of one high speed coach would be between Rs 2.25-2.50 crore. He said that high speed coaches manufactured in RCF for Shatabdi and Rahdhani express trains are capable of running at the optimum speed of 160 kilometer per hour. The GM said railways has selected ten routes on which high speed trains would run as announced by railway minister in his budget speech.
Initially speed of these trains would be 160 kilometer on select rail routes and gradually it would be enhanced up to 200 kilometer after upgrading the signalling system, barricading the area, he said. The railway board and officials of railway department had already conducted a trial on these coaches on Delhi?Agra section at a speed of 160 kilometer and covered the 200 kilometer distance in 99 minutes a few days ago, a railway official said.
The RCF has also started working on the high speed coaches capable of running at a speed of 200 kilometer per hour by making some changes like automatic outer doors, changes in braking system with the provision of electro pneumatic brakes, noise reduction with better sound insulation, provision of TV set on the back of every seat in the executive chair cars and WI-Fi system besides improved vestibules, the GM said.
He said that high speed coach capable of running at 200 kilometer per hour would be rolled out by June next year.

How Good Is India’s First Wi-Fi-Enabled Train Station?
By
DHANYA ANN THOPPIL
Commuters at Bangalore City railway station. Agence France-Presse/Getty Images India has its first Wi-Fi-enabled railway station, appropriately located in the country’s tech capital, Bangalore.
We went to the southern city’s central railway station to see how good the service, still in its pilot stage, is.
The Railways Ministry announced Monday that passengers would be able to access high-speed Internet free for half an hour and then for 25 rupees (40 cents) for the next 30 minutes or 35 rupees for an hour, via an online token or physical card.
...

On Wednesday though, the kiosks selling the cards weren’t open and the online purchasing was not available, so once free access time was up, there was no way to buy additional browsing time. The online purchasing option won’t be available for at least a week or 10 days, said G. Santhiram, general manager at RailTel Corp., the government-owned company that set up Wi-Fi at the station. Kiosks will be ready as soon as the railways allot them space, Mr. Santhiram said. Talks in this direction are ongoing, he added.
Even after getting connected to the Wi-Fi network for our free half-hour of browsing, we found that accessing the web was a struggle.
Cellphone users wanting to get online first have to register their number with the network. This isn’t a one-time-only registration. When the full service is in operation, users will have to register again once their free time is up if they want more Wi-Fi time.
It took us at least 10 minutes to complete the registration and verification process and be able to start browsing, though others we asked said their numbers had been verified in minutes.
The next issue is trying to stay connected. If you stay close to one of the 45 access points on the 10 platforms, then the speed is terrific. Venture too far from one of these access points, though, and you’re likely to fall off the network.
But according to Mr. Santhiram, the access points are spaced out in such a way that “there is seamless connectivity.”
Railway officials said when only a few people are using it, the speed might reach 100 megabits a second—fast enough to download a full-length movie in less than a minute.
Speeds will be at least 4 Mbps, the railway officials said, but will vary depending on the number of users latched on to the network.
Perhaps this is why they haven’t done much to promote the new service. Apart from a few small stickers indicating Wi-Fi was now available on the platforms, there were no other advertisements to alert passengers to the station’s new connectivity.
A straw poll of 10 passengers found that most of them were unaware of the Wi-Fi zone. When we told them about the network, some tried to access it but struggled to load web pages before they had to catch their trains.

RailTel introduces Wi-Fi service at Bangalore railway station; What about the others?
By Aparajita Saxena on Oct 30th, 2014  |
Post a Comment  Email
Free Wi-Fi service has been introduced at Bangalore City railway station, reports DNA. Commuters can access the Wi-Fi network on their mobile phones.
It’s free for the first 30 minutes, after which they would have to purchase extra browsing time online using a credit card or buy a scratch card at the Wi-Fi helpdesk at the station. For 30 minutes of extra browsing time commuters will have to pay Rs 25 and for 1 hour the price is Rs 35, and these are valid for 24 hours.

RailTel Corporation of India’s broadband distribution model, RailWire is providing this service. The report says that similar Wi-Fi facility will be introduced at other A1 & A category stations soon, though it’s not clear exactly when this is scheduled to be implemented. Apparently, Connaught Place in Delhi, Dadar and CST in Mumbai, and Thane stations are on the list of stations to get this service.
India’s Railways Minister D.V.Sadananda Gowda had announced plans to provide Wi-Fi at railway stations, as a part of the Railway Budget 2014. The Indian Railways had also proposed to set up Wi-Fi networks at A1 & A category stations, in August this year. At the time it was said that RailTel would provide the service through independent internet service providers (ISPs), with no investment on part of the Railways. It’s not clear if RailTel has tied-up with any ISP for the Wi-Fi service at Bangalore City railway station.
Back in 2006, the then RailTel AGM (Business Development & Public Relations) Shailesh Tiwari had told that it plans to create Wi-Fi hotspots in 500 stations and also extend the service to the neighbouring areas, in an interview. Eight years have passed but next to no progress on this front.
Only Pilots? When Will The Full Service Be Launched?
Indian Railways had launched free Wi-Fi service at the New Delhi railway station, back in July 2013. It had also rolled out Wi-Fi facility in 3 rakes of Howrah-New Delhi-Howrah Rajdhani Express as a pilot project, in April 2013 after initially announcing it in February 2011. Other pilot projects include Wi-Fi on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express and Chennai- Bangalore-Chennai Shatabdi Express, both in 2009. Pilot projects come and go, but each time at the wider implementation stage things seem to take forever.

Shifting of Tipu’s armoury soon R. KRISHNA KUMAR  
Bangalore–Mysore track doubling work to gain momentum
The shifting of the 18th century armoury belonging to Tipu Sultan, which was hindering the progress of track-doubling work between Bangalore and Mysore, will commence in due course.
The armoury at the Srirangapatana railway station bisects the alignment of the second track, which cannot be laid until the monument is shifted.
Sources in the South Western Railway told The Hindu that when the tender was floated last year inviting bids to translocate the monument, there were no takers. The tenders were floated again in June this year and M/s PSL-Wolfe Pvt. Ltd., which is a firm registered in

New Delhi, was awarded the contract.
Translocation of the armoury as a single block entails moving it from the floor level from its existing location to a new site 100 metres away.
This is done by inserting a suitable supporting system underneath the monument, lifting it using unified hydraulic jacks and transporting it on suitably-designed carriers.
Besides, the project also envisages placing the heritage structure at the new location in the same orientation as at present and integrating the structure with the new foundation.
In the process, no damage should be caused to the historic structure which was used to store arms and ammunitions. Sources said this will be the first time that a monument would be translocated as a single block, though many structures have been dismantled and reassembled again.
Project cost The project will cost about Rs. 13.66 crore and has to be completed in 9 months from the date of commencement and during this period, the Pandavapura-Srirangapatana-Naganahalli section will operate as a single-line section.
Once the monument is shifted, the 13-km single-line stretch on this section will be converted into a double-line section.
The Bangalore-Mysore double line work is officially slated to be completed by March 2015, but for the Naganahalli-Pandavpura section till the monument was shifted. Shifting of the armoury was a major roadblock impeding the pace of the track-doubling work ever since it was noticed in early 2008, and initially there was resistance from the State Archaeological Survey.
However, a Cabinet decision was taken to shift the monument but this had to be cleared by the National Monument Authority of the Archaeological Survey of India which gave its clearance in early 2013.
Archaeological experts had pointed out then that the structure was made of lime mortar and bricks and hence could not be dismantled as in case of structures built using granite or slab stones.
There was considerable delay when the ASI had urged the Railways to realign the track but it was dismissed as impractical as the supporting piers — on which two major bridges across the river Cauvery on either side of Srirangapatana railway station was to be laid — had already been completed.

Margao: Konkan railway corporation (KRC) employees union on Wednesday claimed that poor maintenance of the railway tracks is endangering the lives of people travelling on the Konkan railway route.
President of the KRC employees union Subhash Mallagi said that the failure of the KRC in proper maintenance of the railway tracks over the years has led to the tracks not being able to withstand high speeds for which they were designed.
He attempted to substantiate his statement by flashing a letter written by the commissioner of railway safety to KRC suggesting that trains on the Konkan railway route must not exceed 75km per hour due to poor maintenance of the tracks.

Thousands of commuters were inconvenienced on Central Railway (CR) after a derailment as the engine and one general-cum-guard’s van coach of the 12112 Amravati-Mumbai Express derailed while entering platform No. 4 at Kalyan at 4:50am on Thursday. The derailment blocked the line towards CST between Nasik and Kalyan and by the time CR authorities managed to set the line right at 7:50am for suburban trains and 8:33am for long-distance trains, several local trains during the morning peak hours had missed their schedules. The delays and the bunching of trains resulted in a total of 63 local trains cancelled on the main line. Due to this derailment, long-distance services and suburban services were running behind schedule for 20-25 minutes on the main line, said CR officials. Among the trains cancelled and terminated ahead of their destination were 12110/12109 Manmad-Mumbai-Manmad Panchvati Express and the 22102 Manmad-Lokmanya Tilak Terminus Rajyarani Express short terminated...

at Nasik Road. The 11025 Bhusaval-Pune Express via Manmad-Daund was diverted. “It is a scary thought that trains on CR are derailing so regularly. Either the trains are being properly maintained or the tracks are taking too much of a pounding and giving way. Either way the railways should do something quickly because confidence of passengers on CR is going down by the day,” said Pankaj Mishra, a Thane resident.

MARGAO: With its ambitious plans of a double-track corridor yet to make any headway, the Konkan Railway Corporation Limited (KRCL) has now focused on increasing the lines at railway stations and setting up more stations with a view to facilitating introduction of new trains and reducing travel time.
In the Goa stretch of the route, additional lines have been installed at, at least, three railway stations, while three new lines have been added at the Balli station, and four more lines have been laid at Karmali.
Both stations functioned with two lines earlier. Besides, two additional platforms are being constructed at Margao railway station.
Several new railway stations have been constructed along the Konkan Railway route over the last four years, KRCL sources

said.
In the Goa stretch, a new railway station at Loliem, between Asnoti and Canacona stations, has already started functioning.
"Increase in lines at railway stations and addition of more stations will result in reducing time spent during crossing of trains at stations, thereby considerably decreasing travel time," explained Baban Ghatge, senior manager, public relations, KRCL.
While Byndoor (Mookambika road) and Nandikoor near Udupi are the new railway stations along the Karnataka stretch, Madure between Sawantwadi and Pernem, Zorap between Sawantwadi and Kudal, and Vinhere between Karanjadi and Diwankhavati are the new railway stations in Maharashtra.
Sources said that until the double-track corridor becomes a reality, KRCL will have to come up with such innovative ideas to facilitate smooth running of trains.
The project is estimated to cost over 15,000 crore. KRC's chairman and managing director Bhanu Prakash Tayal, addressing a press conference last year, had said there were several options before KRC to raise the required finances for the project, including seeking funds from international lending agencies.
A setback to KRCL's planned expansion of its Margao railway station has been its failure to convince the Goa government to hand over some 3,500sqm of land on the Aquem side.
The land, it is learnt, is already with the government. Official sources said repeated correspondence with the state government has so far failed to evince any positive response.
The expansion plans included developing the other side of the station by adding a couple of platforms, building another foot-over-bridge, and setting up a booking counter, besides providing passenger amenities such as a waiting hall, parking area, etc.
"In the absence of adequate land for the purpose, we have been constrained to limit our expansion plans to constructing two more platforms towards the other side of the station," said Ghatge. The initial plan was to have two covered platforms with two upper floors designed for commercial activities.

A large chunk of this information is incorrect. I was under the impression, 2 additional lines were laid at Karmali. How come 4?

The arrival of the train from Lhasa to Shigatse, Tibet’s second largest city, along with the opening of the Kyirong landport between Tibet and Nepal, are bound to change the regional strategic balance. While both the railway line and the new port will undoubtedly give a tremendous boost to the bilateral relations between China and Nepal, it may also have other consequences for both nations …and India.
On April 11, the official China Tibet Online had announced that “The Kyirong Port in southwest China’s Tibet bordered with Nepal will be formally opened in October this year [2014].”
The same website reported that Kyirong port would be promoted as a tourist destination for mainland visitors. Knowing that more than one lakh Chinese tourists visited Nepal last year, the new port may be synonymous

The website, affiliated with Xinhua asserted: “The Kyirong Port enjoys a long history of being the largest land trading port between Tibet and Nepal.”
Let us not forget that during the 1792 Tibet-Nepal War, the Manchus troops called by the Tibetan government to defeat the Gorkhas used Kyirong route to invade Nepal.

What will be the other consequences of the opening of a new port between Tibet and Nepal?
Economically, the new border infrastructure will undoubtedly benefit both sides of the border. On April 11, 2014, Dong Mingjun, vice-chairman of the Tibetan Autonomous Region’s (TAR) government told the media: “The Kyirong Port will serve as a link between China and the South Asian countries. It is expected to bring a big number of visitors into Tibet and boost its tourism.”
Can Kyirong really be a link between the Tibet and India?
Presently, it appears to be wishful-thinking on the part of the Tibetan officials. But there is no doubt that Chinese tourists and goods would be poured into Nepal through the Lhasa-Shigatse railway line and then through the highway between Shigatse and Kyirong (a branch of the highly-strategic G219 highway linking Tibet to Xinjiang, known in India as the Aksai Chin Road).
In August, the E-Kantipur reported: “Chinese arrivals to Nepal crossed the 100,000 mark last year reaching an all-time high of 113,173, largely due to improved air connectivity between Nepal and China. The figures released by the Tourism Ministry showed that air arrivals jumped 55.3 percent to 62,616 and overland travellers surged 44.7 percent to 50,557. Arrivals from China in 2012 amounted to 71,861 persons.”
Wu Chuntai, the Chinese Ambassador to Nepal recently announced that the number of Chinese tourists to Nepal would reach 250,000 within a couple of years.
For India, it could be a serious security issue, if several lakhs of Chinese tourists starts pouring into Nepal, will some of them be tempted to illegally cross the porous border with India? It is very much possible; it will have to be looked into by the Indian security agencies.
China too, has a problem.
The recent visit of Lobsang Gyaltsen, the Chairman of the Tibet Autonomous Region’s (TAR) government to Kathmandu points to the Chinese anxieties.
According to the E-Kantipur, “Tibet region chief stressed better ties in security”.
The Nepali media calls him ‘Luo Sang Jiang Cun’, it is the Chinese way to spell Lobsang Gyalsten’s name! Imperialist powers always adapt the pronunciation of local names to the twists of their own tongue.
Gyaltsen (Mr. Luo, for the E-Kantipur) apparently urged Kathmandu “to put in place measures to curb ‘anti-China activities’ in Nepal.”
Leading a six-member ‘Tibetan’ delegation to Kathmandu, Gyaltsen met with Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs Bam Dev Gautam and Minister for Foreign Affairs Mahendra Bahadur Pandey.
What did they talk about?
“Bilateral issues including Tibetan assistance to bordering Nepali districts figured”, says the Nepali paper which notes that ‘Luo’ did not utter the word ‘refugee’ while speaking about his Tibetan countrymen who live in Nepal, but he repeatedly spoke of ‘anti-Chinese elements’.
Laxmi Prasad Dhakal, the spokesperson of the Home Ministry said that “he urged us to curb anti-China activities and take stern action against those involved in such activities.”
He sought a better coordination between security agencies on both sides of the international border to curb (Tibetan) activities.
Home Minister Bam Dev was quoted as saying: “The Chinese side seems worried about increasing criminal activities along the Nepal-China border”.
Why is Lobsang Gyalsten so obsessed with his countrymen activities in Nepal? It may be because of the forthcoming opening of Kyirong landport. One of the consequences of a new port is that it could facilitate the escape to Nepal of Tibetans resenting the Chinese rule. This makes Lhasa extremely nervous.
Gyaltsen told the Nepali ministers: “China doesn’t have any refugee as such [in Nepal]”, however he added that the Tibetans crossing the border into Nepal were doing it illegally.
The ministers politely assured the Tibetan leader that the Nepali soil would never be used against its neighbours, i.e. China.
Gyalsten, with his one-point agenda, also called on President Ram Baran Yadav, Prime Minister Sushil Koirala and Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Dipak Chandra Amatya. He discussed “possible Tibetan assistance to 15 northern districts of Nepal.” A Foreign Ministry official said there are indications that from next year, the Tibetan government will expand the cooperation in this field.The present cooperation is centered around security and the training of the Nepali border guards to catch the Tibetans who would try to escape Tibet.Already in July 2010, a meeting termed ‘Nepal-China Border Security and Law Enforcement Talks’ was held in Kathmandu. Both sides had agreed to set up ‘focal points’ in the respective Home Ministries in Kathmandu and Beijing. A senior Nepali Government official had told The Kathmandu Post: “The Chinese side assured full support to enhance capacity building, training of Nepali security personnel to be deployed across the northern border, seeking Nepal’s full commitment on information sharing on anti-China activities to contain [them].”In August 2011, an unnoticed development took place. Zhang Qingli, the then hardliner Party boss in Tibet, accompanied the Politburo Standing Committee member, the now disgraced Zhou Yongkang to Nepal. Zhou was then the supreme security czar of the Middle Kingdom.A few months later, Chen Zhimin, the Chinese Vice-Minister of Public Security led a delegation to Nepal. According to the official communique issued after the visit: “The two sides exchanged views on cooperation of police affairs and law enforcement and reached consensus on some issues.”The Nepali Press reported: “The Chinese offered ‘logistic support’ worth $300,000 dollars in the form of laptops, searchlights or metal detectors.”As the date approach for the opening of Kyirong, Lhasa is more and more uneasy. The purpose of Gyaltsen’s visit to Kathmandu was to tell the Nepalis to watch out and not accept anymore ‘refugees’.Lhasa is indeed nervous that Tibetans could cross the border and enter Nepal and then proceed to India (or worse stay in Nepal).India should also watch carefully the afflux of Chinese tourists as it can turn out to be a serious security issue in the years to come.

The arrival of the train from Lhasa to Shigatse, Tibet’s second largest city, along with the opening of the Kyirong landport between Tibet and Nepal, are bound to change the regional strategic balance. While both the railway line and the new port will undoubtedly give a tremendous boost to the bilateral relations between China and Nepal, it may also have other consequences for both nations …and India.
On April 11, the official China Tibet Online had announced that “The Kyirong Port in southwest China’s Tibet bordered with Nepal will be formally opened in October this year [2014].”
The same website reported that Kyirong port would be promoted as a tourist destination for mainland visitors. Knowing that more than one lakh Chinese tourists visited Nepal last year, the new port may be synonymous

of a Chinese invasion of the former Himalayan kingdom.

The website, affiliated with Xinhua asserted: “The Kyirong Port enjoys a long history of being the largest land trading port between Tibet and Nepal.”
Let us not forget that during the 1792 Tibet-Nepal War, the Manchus troops called by the Tibetan government to defeat the Gorkhas used Kyirong route to invade Nepal.

What will be the other consequences of the opening of a new port between Tibet and Nepal?
Economically, the new border infrastructure will undoubtedly benefit both sides of the border. On April 11, 2014, Dong Mingjun, vice-chairman of the Tibetan Autonomous Region’s (TAR) government told the media: “The Kyirong Port will serve as a link between China and the South Asian countries. It is expected to bring a big number of visitors into Tibet and boost its tourism.”

Rail link between Ramanathapuram and Rameswaram, which remained cut off on Thursday night, was restored on Friday morning and the first train left from here at 10.55 a.m.
Railway officials from Madurai completed the job, on a war-footing, of fastening around 850 metres of rails at Thangachimadam, between Rameswaram and Pamban railway stations.
"The Railway police gave us clearance for starting restoration work at 8.02 a.m. and we completed it in 53 minutes," the Senior Divisional Safety Officer, A. Ravichandran, said.
However, rail movement could be taken up on the sections only after the Engineering department officials gave a track fitness certificate after making a trolley inspection between Mandapam and Rameswaram railway stations.

Egmore Express was the first train to leave the station at 10.55 a.m. The train that was scheduled to leave at 5 p.m. on Thursday was among three express trains that were stranded in the island after a 1,000-member strong mob damaged the tracks by removing the elastic rail clips at Thangachimadam.
The fishermen were angered at the pronouncement of capital punishment by a court in Sri Lanka to five fishermen from Thangachimadam in a case of smuggling narcotics substances on Thursday.
In the overnight violence the road link between the mainland and the island was also cut off by the local people who had put up scores of hurdles inlcuding burning of tyres and wooden logs. However, they called off their agitation after midnight following talks held by the officials of district administration and the ruling party MP, Anwar Raja.
Bus services that was suspended from and to the island was restored early in the morning giving much relief to tourists and pilgrims who were stranded at Rameswaram and Ramanathapuram.

Rail and road link to Rameswaram remained paralysed on Thursday after fishermen removed the rail track for at least one kilometre at Thangachimadam and blocked the road from Pamban.
Three trains to Chennai could not be operated, and a mob set fire to a State Transport Corporation bus and damaged the windscreen of half-a-dozen buses.
The police were caught unawares as a large contingent was on security duty at Pasumpon for the Muthuramalinga Thevar jayanthi.

Thousands of commuters visit the Rajiv Chowk metro station every day with a majority of them in a hurry to catch a train or to be the first to exit.
The large number of footfalls also means that if someone is looking to spread awareness or send out a message, it is the perfect place .
All one needs to do is to make it interesting enough for people to stop and spare a few minutes.
To refresh the public’s memory about Indian Nobel laureates, a Nobel Memorial Wall has been inaugurated at the Rajiv Chowk metro station.
The wall is an initiative of the Embassy of Sweden and the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation

(DMRC).
The exhibition was inaugurated on Sunday morning by Mangu Singh, Managing Director, DMRC, Eivind S. Homme, Ambassador of Norway to India, and Harald Sandberg, Ambassador of Sweden.
The wall exhibits portraits of Rabindranath Tagore, C.V. Raman, Har Gobind Khorana, Mother Teresa, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, Amartya Sen, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, and this year’s Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi.
While some of the laureates are well-known, the write-up below the portrait throws light on those winners whose life and work is known only to people in their field of work.
Mr. Singh said that the contributions of the Nobel laureates have given India a recognition across the world. “And the exhibition gives an opportunity to the youth to know more about our Nobel laureates while they are on the move.”
Pushpa Mitra, who takes the metro every day, says, “It has become a mechanical process. You just move with the sea of passengers at the station without bothering to observe what is around. Therefore, it came as a pleasant surprise on Sunday as that there was exhibition giving information about Indians who have won the Nobel Prize.”
She says she hardly has time to visit the numerous exhibitions in the city but if there is one on her way to office, she will surely take out five minutes to view a slice of art, culture, history, or a campaign.
The exhibition is part of the Sweden India Nobel Memorial Week 2014 that will be on till November 1.
In its eighth edition, it will be held across 10 cities, and it is a multi-activity annual event organised by the Embassy of Sweden in India in cooperation with leading Swedish companies.
The week is observed in memory of Swedish innovator, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Alfred Nobel.
