Kochi: Kerala’s only train to Rameswaram on the east coast may be pulled thanks to the lackadaisical attitude of authorities at the Thiruvananthapuram Railway Division. The Ernakulam-Rameswaram special train, which has been running full since it was rolled out three months ago, is unlikely to be extended beyond June 25. The train, which goes through Palakkad, Pollachi, Palani and Madurai to the busy pilgrim center, was extended beyond the original two-month schedule considering the heavy demand. Even though passengers are still making a beeline for the train, the authorities are planning to end the service instead of running it every day to meet the demand. Railway’s commercial department claims that it had written to the Southern Railway headquarters and the operating section to regularize the service but the letter seems to have vanished in the labyrinths of bureaucracy. A lack of coordination among railway departments has deprived Kerala of much needed...
services. Railway honchos seems to be least bothered. Many of them are against the introduction of new services because more trains would mean more work for them. Several trains including the Ernakulam-Salem Intercity and the Ernakulam-Vailankanni, have been recommended to benefit Kerala but none of them are anywhere near operation. Recommendations to run the Thiruvananthapuram-Nilambur Rajyarani Express as an independent service and to run daily the Kannur-Alappuzha, Thiruvananthapuram-Kannur Janshatabdi and MEMU services have also received a quiet burial. The MEMU services could be run daily with the addition of just one MEMU rake yet the officers on top have not done anything significant to get that in the last four years. The Thiruvananthapuram division has failed miserably to regularize the profitable Chennai-Ernakulam Suvidha Special, Kochuveli-Mangaluru weekly train, Kochuveli-Hyderabad and Kochuveli-Guwahati trains. The officers in the Thiruvananthapuram division try to pass the buck to their superiors, saying their demands are not even listened at the zonal headquarters. The railway’s structure comprises a division, zone and railway board. The recommendations from the division are processed at the zone (Southern Railway, in this case) and decided by the board. The recommendations sent by the two divisions in Kerala - Thiruvananthapuram and Palakkad - seldom go beyond the Southern Railway headquarters. They do not even help in matters which do not need the railway board’s approval. Demands from the passengers from Kerala are stonewalled by lame excuses that the state does not have enough terminals or pit lines. At the same time, authorities have done little to get on track the terminal announced for Nemom, the pit lines for Ernakulam and Kochuveli and the third track between Ernakulam and Shornur. The restoration of the Kochi harbor terminus is nowhere near completion even two months after the deadline. The projects announced in the budget remain on paper. The authorities who blame a lack of infrastructure in Kerala are sitting on the development projects. The people’s representatives who are supposed to chase the projects are not helping either.

This is really sad. All the more difficult for Kerala as the ruling party and center are always at loggerheads. Seems Kerala will only get some benefit if they have a separate zone !

Kochi got its metro on Saturday after Prime Minister Narendra Modi dedicated the first phase of the rail service to the nation. A long-cherished project of Keralites, the foundation of Kochi Metro was laid by then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on September 13, 2012. So, in less than 5 years Kochi Metro became operational but reportedly the Indian Railways is unhappy with the pace of work in Kolkata Metro. According to a report in TOI, the average fund allocation for Kolkata Metro is just around Rs 400 crore every year for the past three years.
The Times of India quoting a top railway ministry source has reported that with the current pace of spending and execution, it will take another 17 years
for the Kolkata Metro project to reach its completion. The estimated cost of 64 km of the new Metro corridor was around Rs 8,639 crore, but the total spending on the project till date is just Rs 2,018 crore in the last seven years that is mere Rs 288 crore a year, according to TOI.
The Kolkata Metro rail corridor was announced in the Rail Budget 2010-11 by then railway minister Mamata Baneerjee.
Bengaluru’s Namma Metro, cleared in 2006, has been running three years behind its schedule as it was supposed to be completed in 2014, according to a report in NDTV.
Inaugurated by PM Modi, Kochi Metro, the flagship transportation infrastructure project of Kerala, will start its regular operations from June 19. After cutting the ribbon at the Palarivattom station, PM Modi shook hands with the Kerala CM and Sreedharan before proceeding to board the metro train.
During the journey, PM Modi waved at the crowd as Sreedharan and Kochi Metro Rail Ltd Managing Director Elias George interacted with him.
The estimated completed cost of the metro touched Rs 5,181.79 crore. The foundation of Kochi Metro was laid by then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on September 13, 2012. It will improve regional connectivity and reduce traffic congestion.

नौकरियों को लेकर भारत में काफी बुरे दिन चल रहे हैं। आईटी सेक्टर में छंटनी के बाद अब भारतीय रेलवे ने भी इसी दिशा में बढ़ने के संकेत दिए हैं।”
रेल मंत्रालय ने खर्च कटौती करने के सिलसिले को तेज करते हुए सभी 17 रेल मंडलों से करीब 11 हजार पदों को खत्म करने को कहा है। खबर है कि रेलवे बोर्ड ने इस आशय का पत्र सभी रेल प्रबंधकों को भेज दिया है। फिलहाल भारतीय रेल में कार्यरत कर्मचारियों की संख्या 15 लाख के करीब है और इस खबर से उनमें खलबली है। हिंदी अखबार ‘नई दुनिया’ के अनुसार, 25 मई को केंद्रीय रेलवे बोर्ड के निदेशक (ई एंड आर) अमित सरन ने इस आशय का आदेश पत्र सभी जोन मुख्यालयों
को भेजा है। इससे रेल कर्मचारियों में हड़कंप है .
रेलवे का क्या कहना है?
हालांकि रेलवे प्रशासन इसे सामान्य प्रक्रिया बता रहा है। अधिकारियों के मुताबिक रेलवे हर साल एक प्रतिशत पद समाप्त करता है। हालांकि, मौजूदा आदेश पर अधिकारी सफाई दे रहे हैं कि समीक्षा के बाद यह तय किया जाएगा कि कौन से अनुपयोगी पद समाप्त किए जाएंगे। अधिकारी का यह भी दावा है कि ऐसे पद समाप्त करने से रेलवे का कामकाज पर कोई असर नहीं पड़ेगा।
कम कार्यबल में रेल संचालन के निर्देश
रेलवे बोर्ड ने रेल अफसरों को कम कार्यबल में ही रेल संचालन करने को कहा है। इस लिहाज से दक्षिण-पूर्व-मध्य रेलवे जोन को 400 पद समाप्त करने के लिए कहा गया है जबकि सेंट्रल और ईस्टर्न रेलवे को 1-1 हजार पद, ईस्ट कोस्ट रेलवे को 700, नॉर्दन रेलवे को 1500, नॉर्थ सेंट्रल रेलवे को 150, नॉर्थ ईस्टर्न रेलवे को 700, नॉर्थ वेस्टर्न रेलवे को 300, ईस्ट सेंट्रल रेलवे को 300, नॉर्थ ईस्टफ्रंटियर रेलवे को 550 पद खत्म करने को कहा गया है। इसी तरह सदर्न रेलवे को 1500, साउथ सेंट्रल रेलवे को 800, साउथ ईस्ट सेंट्रल और साउथ ईस्टर्न रेलवे को 400-400 पद, साउथ वेस्टर्न रेलवे को 200, वेस्टर्न रेलवे को 700 और वेस्ट सेंट्रल रेलवे को 300 पद समाप्त करने को कहा गया है।

to ye full proof work practice banane ka kaam kiska hai. IAS aur IRAS officers ka jo khud nahi chahte ki ye bane. 3 saal pehle lokpal act ke tahat saare group A/B officers ko apni property declare karni thi( movable / immovable dono ) aj date tak uska last date 6 - 6 mahina extend ho raha hai. Ab keh rahe hai ki form ke format me controversy hai. 3 saal me ye form ka format nahi bana paye jo ki 1 hafte ka kaam hai.

ലോക്കോ പൈലറ്റുമാർ സമരം പിൻവലിച്ചുSaturday 10 June 2017 09:04 PM IST
by സ്വന്തം ലേഖകൻ
കൊച്ചി∙ ഡ്യൂട്ടി പരിഷ്കാരത്തിൽ പ്രതിഷേധിച്ചു തിരുവനന്തപുരം റെയിൽവേ ഡിവിഷനിലെ ലോക്കോപൈലറ്റുമാർ നടത്തിയ നിരാഹാര സമരം പിൻവലിച്ചു. പുതിയ ക്രൂലിങ്ക് നടപ്പാക്കുന്നതു മാറ്റിവയ്ക്കാൻ റെയിൽവേ തയാറായതിനെ തുടർന്നാണു സമരം പിൻവലിക്കുന്നതെന്ന് ഓൾ ഇന്ത്യ ലോക്കോ റണ്ണിങ് സ്റ്റാഫ് അസോസിയേഷൻ പ്രസിഡന്റ് ജെ. വേണുഗോപാൽ അറിയിച്ചു.
വിശ്രമം നിഷേധിച്ചു കൊണ്ട് ഏകപക്ഷീയമായി പുതിയ ക്രൂലിങ്ക് നടപ്പാക്കാനുള്ള നീക്കത്തിൽ പ്രതിഷേധിച്ചു നിസ്സഹകരണ സമരവും പ്രഖ്യാപിച്ചിരുന്നു. എന്നാൽ ഒത്തുതീർപ്പു ചർച്ചയ്ക്കു ക്ഷണിച്ചതിനാൽ നിസ്സഹകരണ സമരം നേരത്തെ
അസോസിയേഷൻ വേണ്ടെന്നു വച്ചിരുന്നു.
തിരുവനന്തപുരം ഡിവിഷനിൽ ലോക്കോപൈലറ്റ് പരീക്ഷ നടത്താത്തതിനാൽ മറ്റു ഡിവിഷനുകളിൽ നിന്നു സ്ഥലമാറ്റത്തിലൂടെയാണ് ഇവിടുത്തെ ഒഴിവുകൾ നികത്തുന്നത്. പുറത്തുള്ള ഡിവിഷനുകളിലെ ലോക്കോപൈലറ്റുമാർ സ്ഥലംമാറി വന്നാൽ മാത്രമേ ഇവിടെയുള്ളവർക്കു കൃത്യമായി പ്രമോഷൻ ലഭിക്കൂ.
എന്നാൽ, മറ്റിടങ്ങളിൽ നിന്നു ലോക്കൊ പൈലറ്റുമാരെ വിട്ടുകിട്ടാത്ത അവസ്ഥയാണ്. തിരുവനന്തപുരം ഡിവിഷനിലെ ലോക്കോ പൈലറ്റ് ക്ഷാമം മൂലം ഗുഡ്സ് ഓടിക്കുന്നവരെ ഉപയോഗിച്ചാണു പലപ്പോഴും മെയിൽ, എക്സ്പ്രസ് ട്രെയിനുകളോടിക്കുന്നത്. 102 പേർ വേണ്ടിടത്തു 80 പേരാണുള്ളത്.
തിരുവനന്തപുരം ആർആർബി പരീക്ഷ നടത്താത്തതിനാൽ മലയാളി ഉദ്യോഗാർഥികൾക്കു കേരളത്തിൽ ജോലിക്ക് അപേക്ഷിക്കാൻ കഴിയാത്ത സാഹചര്യവും നിലവിലുണ്ട്.
