Eagerly Waiting to see Electric poles, Wire hovering over our "Clean Station". Once done, this can be one of the cleanest stations of India along with doubling + Electrification.. Cheers!!
Thos days are near :) !! its getting closer !! RVNL has already started working for this section, they are doing modification to the power lines etc. Its kinda pre-OHE works, they are also working in tandem with PSPCL for removal / relocation of overhead power lines crossing the track including 11k and 33k lines. The old BSNL lines have also been converted into 6-Quad Cable, which are running along the track on poles, this is also been done to avoid distortion to the communication lines with 25Kv OHE. This cable atlas reached PTA from DUI side two days back with a team of 6 trenchers and a supervisor , who were bringing this cable from Dhuri to PTA, trenching and laying it.
Announcement system has not been changed yet...
Ya, it is to be done by UMB not the CGS contractor.
Yes, it shall be done too, but the contractor said IVR is provided by railways.
Work for new announcement system has started, with Railways installing new speakers on CGS poles.

अभी तो एक महीना पड़ा है इस टेंडर के खुलने को। मेरी जानकारी के मुताबिक़ दोनो प्राजेक्ट्स जनवरी के दूसरे या तीसरे हफ़्ते में शुरू हो सकते हैं। RVNL को जो फ़ंड्ज़ 2015-16 के लिए मिले हैं उन्हें March 2016 तक ख़र्च भी तो करना है।
Explaining PMC, A project management consultancy is a professional consulting firm with knowledge and experience in the specialized area of assisting organizations to improve their practice of project, program and/or portfolio management.
The Yellow Chillies , the signature chain of restaurant of Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor , now opens in Patiala.
Same was opened in ASR few years back but closed down soon due to less patronage..
Punjabis luv Food like no one else, that even Sanjiv Kapur signature restaurant failed in ASR.
May this succeed in PTA, in the backdrop of great Local cuisine of PTA>
