भदोही : भले ही सरकार ने रेलवे यात्रा के लिए पुराने नोटों के चलन को बरकरार रखा है बावजूद इसके विभाग को तगड़ी चपत लग रही है। स्थानीय स्टेशन पर टिकट बिक्री सहित अन्य मदों में होने वाली आने आय में 35 से 40 फीसद कमी दर्ज की गई है। छोटी नोट की समस्या के चलते यात्री व क्लर्क दोनों बेबस हैं।
हजार व पांच सौ के नोट बंद करने के निर्णय के दौरान सरकार ने रेलवे सहित कुछ विभागों को पुराने नोट स्वीकार करने के आदेश जारी किए थे। बावजूद इसके रेलवे को भारी हानि का सामना करना पड़ा। आलम यह है कि छोटे नोट यानी सौ पचास रुपये के अभाव में बु¨कग से टिकट निकालना टेढ़ी खीर साबित हुआ। बताते
चलें कि बु¨कग पर पहुंचने वालों के पास पांच सौ व एक हजार के ही नोट नजर आए। उधर वापस करने के लिए क्लर्क के पास छोटे नोट न होने के कारण समस्या खड़ी हुई। इस दौरान कुछ लोगों ने जहां यात्रा रद कर दी वहीं अधिकतर बेटिकट यात्रा को विवश हुए।
इसके अलावा पैसे के अभाव में काफी लोग इन दिनों यात्रा से भी परहेज कर रहे हैं। यही कारण है कि साढ़े तीन से चार लाख प्रतिदिन अर्निग वाले स्टेशन की कमाई घट कर दो से ढाई लाख तक सिमट गई। छुट्टे को लेकर बु¨कग पर कई बार विवाद की स्थिति भी उत्पन्न हुई। इस बाबत मुख्य वाणिज्यिक प्रबंधक एसके सिनहा का कहना है कि अभी तो गनीमत है शनिवार से रेलवे भी पुराने नोट नहीं लेगा। ऐसे में अर्निग धड़ाम होना तय है। बताया कि यह स्थित कम से कम एक सप्ताह बनी रहेगी।

Railways should provide card swapping machines at UTS and PRS counters so that bookings could be done by paying direct through debit or credit card. This will encourage the use of plastic money and this digital transaction system will also bring transparency in the system.

Indian Railways are also one reason for use of cash in economy. IRCTC etickets use plastic money while none of counters PRS have even a debit/credit card machines. No wonder black money hoarders took to pour it in PRS tickets. Such an irony that IRCTC users have to pay Rs22, Rs45 while PRS counters where cost of people, infrastructure, computers, electricity, buildings rent has to be paid while not a single extra penny is charged ofr PRS tickets that also comes with a rider that even WL PRS are used unauthorized travel in trains.

No tickets checking is going on stations due to this effect...

On that issue Govt will have to rethink. On one hand it's promoting the use of plastic money & digital transaction and on the other hand it's charging more from those who opt these as a mode of payment. This double speak is the biggest obstruction in the way of a transparent transaction system.

(1) Online transaction is done mostly by the educated (mostly salaried) middle class people in India. These are the ones targeted to be squeezed by govt to collect maximum revenue, as they want nation to be governed with justice and proper utilisation of their hard earned money contributed by them as tax. They are the biggest sufferers of black economy as they have very little to save even after heavily contributing (a major part of their savings as tax) to national economy.
(2)The rich ones are always a couple of steps ahead of the Govt and are generally "good friends" of the rulers and often party to them through big political donations/ deals/ partnerships etc. This class is the biggest beneficiary of
the parallel black economy and mint money through hoarding of goods, capturing national resources. Huge increase in the assets held by top 2-3 percent of Indians bear a testimony to this. Embezzlement of huge amounts in tune of several 1000s of crores (lacs of Crores in few cases) had been found out in single case by the investigating agencies in past by the this class of people.
(3) And the non taxpaying BPL people (some really poor and other pseudo poor, who are poor with white money and rich with black money) whom the rulers consider as a vote bank to be nurtured through splurging of tax collected over them. This is to ensure that kingdom(govt) may continue for as long as possible. A novice ex-PM candidly admitted that only 15% of the subsidy actually reaches the real poor, 85% goes to the pseudo poor or is embezzled mostly by rich ones.
(4) Above factors override the emphasis of the govt on plastic money & digital transaction which shall ensure better tax collection, higher tax compliance, lower tax rates. Because nurturing vote bank and remain in power often is more important than the well being of nation and its honest citizens. Every body shall talk about good laws and practices but does not want to implement them in right spirit as one him/herself have to come clean on that issue.
