भारतीय रेल ने ट्रेनों की करीब 40 हजार बोगियों से एक-एक टॉयलेट हटाने का फैसला किया है. दरअसल ट्रेन में खाने की प्लेट और कैरेट्स को रखने के लिए कोई जगह नहीं होती है और मुसाफ़िरों को दिए जाने वाले खाने को टॉयलेट के दरवाजे के पास रखना पड़ता है जो कि स्वास्थ्य और सफाई की दृष्टि से सही नहीं होता है. इस वजह से यह निर्णय लिया गया है.
पिछले दिनों भारत के नियंत्रक महालेखापरीक्षक ने भी अपनी रिपोर्ट में इसे सेहत और स्वच्छता के लिहाज से ग़लत बताया था. रेलवे की योजना के मुताबिक़ हर कोच से एक-एक टॉयलेट हटाकर वहां कैटरिंग से जुड़े सामान को रखने के लिए जगह बनाई जाएगी.
रेल ने 13 जून को मिशन रेट्रो फ़िटमेंट शुरू किया है. इसके तहत रेलवे के पुराने आईसीएफ़ डिज़ाइन के डब्बों को आधुनिक और सुरक्षित बनाया जा रहा है. रेलवे में फिलहाल इस तरह की क़रीब 40 हज़ार बोगियां मौजूद हैं. इन सभी को अगले 5 साल में नया डिज़ाइन दिया जाएगा
सूत्रों के मुताबिक़ इसी कड़ी में सभी डब्बों से एक-एक टॉयलेट भी हटाए जाएंगे और उसके स्थान पर खाना और बेडरोल रखने की जगह बनाई जाएगी. यानि अब भारतीय रेल के रिजर्व क्लास के हर डब्बे में 4 की जगह तीन टॉयलेट होंगे
भारतीय रेल में जर्मन डिज़ाइन के क़रीब 5 हज़ार एलएचबी कोच का भी इस्तेमाल होता है. नए डिज़ाइन की वजह से इसमें खानपान की सामग्री रखने की जगह मौजूद होती है. इसलिए ऐसे डब्बों में 4 टॉयलेट मौजूद रहेंगे. रेलवे ने भविष्य में केलवे एलएचबी डिज़ाइन के कोच बनाने का फ़ैसला किया है.
पहले रेलवे के रिज़र्व क्लास की बोगियों में दो टॉयलेट हुआ करते थे. फिर 1970 के दशक में तत्कालीन यात्री सेवा समिति के सुझाव के आधार पर ट्रेनों के हर कोच में 4 टॉयलेट बनाए गए थे.

* It amounts to reducing the quality of travel in trains. IR has conveniently forgotten the SMB experiment. Huge fund (may be to the tune of Rs. 100 crores) was wasted in providing SMBs and subsequently removing them.
* There are many ways to increase cost-
(1) Direct Increase the basic fares (similar to Rs 1 Re rise for a 100gm
biscuit pack)-
-HONEST AND TRANSPARENT WAY- which pax normally know well before booking ticket IR has probably forgotten.
(2) Indirect increase- (adding delivery charge, or adding octroi over the normal price or making availability not so ready
Disallowing/putting restrictions onward journey/break-journey/circular-journey tickets,
Disallowing separate Seats for subsidised travel of children,
changing cancellation rules/charges,
making trains SF by just stretching to 55kmph in Time table etc
-SHREWD WAY- which pinches during ticket purchase and not so on announcement. IR have already mastered this art since decades
(3) Direct reduction in the quality of travel thru (Similar to reduce weight from 100gm to 90gm)
introuction SMB i.e. cramping more pax in same space,
permitting RAC/WL paxs to crowd the coach, etc
-SHREWD WAY- which does not pinches during ticket purchase/ announcement, but pinch during travel. IR have already mastered this art since decades
(4) Indirect reduction in the quality of travel by (Similar to Using poor quality raw material for biscuits)
reducing number of toilets,
removing pantry car,
removing curtains from ACIIIetc
-SHREWD WAY OF FULFILLIN HIDDEN AGENDA- which does not pinches during ticket purchase/ announcement, but adds to misery during travel. IR have started this art since decades
(5) Exorbitant increase in tickets with aim of profiteering from targeted section of rail travellers. This reminds of a 20-25 yr old situation situation when Maruti-800 the only hot car model for Middle class was sold at about 2 Lac Rs Showroom price (+accs+Roadtax etc) where as manufacturing cost was only about 70000 Rs.
Large scale introduction of Flexifare/ Suvidha/ PT/ Special fare Tatkal in spite of these trains running at poor occupancy and regular trains on the route running with W/L running into several hundreds!!
* By resorting to more and more indirect ways to make train travel inconvenient/ costlier, IR is gradually driving away its blue chip paxs (high fare/revenue/profit giving) to aeroplanes, Luxury buses & Cars.
