(d) whether the Government intends to lay down new criteria/re-fix
the existing criteria for stoppages; and

ANSWER
MINISTER OF RAILWAYS AND COAL
(SHRI PIYUSH GOYAL)
(a) to (e) A Statement is laid on the Table of the House.
*****
STATEMENT REFERRED TO IN REPLY TO PARTS (a) TO (e) OF
STARRED QUESTION NO. 179 BY DR. A. SAMPATH TO BE ANSWERED
IN LOK SABHA ON 07.03.2018 REGARDING STOPPAGES OF TRAINS
(a) & (b) Yes, Madam. At present, Indian Railways have a policy on
stoppage of trains. Some of the important criteria are as under:-
(1) Total sale of tickets at the station for both Up and Down
directions distance wise, class-wise & cost wise.
(2) Traffic pattern at the station
(3) Availability of alternative services, convenience and occupancy of
existing services.
(4) Nature of train and occupancy in question
(5) Passing time of the train in question at the station where
stoppage is under consideration.
(6) Operational constraints- effect on the line capacity of the section
and punctuality of other services
The policy guidelines which encompasses both the operational
and commercial aspects for provision of stoppage of trains inter alia
stipulates that the minimum number of tickets to be sold at the
station so as to recover the cost of stoppage (which ranges from ₹
12,716/- to ₹ 24,506/- depending upon traction, composition and
other factors) should be 40 or more tickets per day per train for
sleeper class for a distance of 500 kms or its equivalent in terms of
cost for mixed class of passengers like AC, General and distance
(multiple of 100 kms) toward/from destination/originating stations of
the train. The policy also stipulates that no additional stoppage to be
provided in sections having capacity utilization above 90%.
Additionally, population and significance of the town/city and new
developments thereat, are other factors taken into account while
considering provision of new stoppages.
(c) No, Madam. However, large number of consistent requests are
received for provision of stoppages of trains at various stations.
Experience suggests that most of the requests do not meet the
extant commercial parameters stipulated in the policy guidelines for
provision of stoppages. Generally, in those cases where the overall
running time is not impacted by the provision of additional stoppage,
Indian Railways, with due approval of the Competent Authority,
resorts to provision of experimental stoppages for limited period with
the dual intent to meet the aspirations of travelling public as also to
gauge the volume of traffic.
(d) & (e) No, Madam. At present, there is no such proposal
