With the expansion of the Silchar- Lumding section of the North Frontier Railway(NFR), Dimapur station will no longer remain under Lumding junction.
According to sources in the NFR Guwahati, Dimapur station will henceforth operate under the administrative control of Tinsukia Junction.
The distance from Dimapur to Tinsukia is around 265 kilometers while the distance from Dimapur to Lumding is 69 kilometers.That means, those from Dimapur who have to make complaints or related work will have to travel 265 kilometers to Tinsukia.
Placing Dimapur station under Tinsukia Junction may not be a big issue but when it involves the second highest revenue earning station of NFR; Dimapur should have long been upgraded particularly so when it will become a junction after it will be linked with Tuli and Naginimora and also in the next decade, with Zubza.
The politics behind the step-motherly treatment to Dimapur is certainly a matter that needs serious attention of the state government, especially the chief minister and the two MPs.
It may be recalled, that Nagaland Post had first reported about the direction being taken to deprive Dimapur of its rising pre-eminence particularly arising from the fact that it is the second highest revenue earning station in the north east under the North Frontier Railways(NFR).
This newspaper had reported that railway offences under Dimapur station that used to be tried under the court of the judicial magistrate Dimapur, have been transferred to Tinsukia district court.
Local lawyers at Tinsukia have opposed the appearance of any advocate from Dimapur to represent their client(s) at the Tinsukia court . A senior legal official also disclosed, that after the transfer of judicial jurisdiction to Tinsukia, it has become an unwritten rule that all lawyers representing their clients involving offences under railways, will be only from Tinsukia.
As reported on several occasions, railway authorities in Assam have placed state interests above that of the paying passengers. It happened with the Jan Shatabdi Express that was introduced to Dimapur by then railway minister Ram Vilas Paswan during 1996.
It was meant to link state capitals. Since Dimapur being the only railhead of Nagaland, the Jan Shatabdi was to run between Guwahati to Dimapur. Within a short span, Jan Shatabdi extended gradually to Furkating, Mariani and till Jorhat. Today it is known as Guwahati-Jorhat Jan Shatabdi Express.
Though Dimapur is the second highest revenue earning station after Guwahati for the NFR, not even one long distance train has been introduced from Dimapur. The only train starting from Dimapur is Nagaland Express from Dimapur-Kamakhya .
Whereas 19 long and medium distance trains commence from Dibrugarh and another 21 long and medium distance trains commence from Tinsukia.
In terms of passenger amenities also, Dimapur is well below expectations. It has only one covered platform (No.1) while the other platform (No.2) is still without a roof for many years. Passengers boarding or detraining during monsoon get drenched at this particular ‘roofless platform’.
Further, authorities at NFR do not seem to be bothered about removing encroachment in the form of religious places (allegedly started by former employees). Improving the facilities at Dimapur Railway Station requires space and if the authorities don’t respond, then there will be no scope of making Dimapur a model station.
