कई सुपरफास्ट ट्रेनें वक्त पर नहीं पहुंचतीं (सांकेतिक तस्वीर)
अरविंद चौहान, आगरा
क्या कभी आपने सोचा है कि जिन ट्रेनों को 'सुपरफास्ट' बताकर रेलवे आपसे इसके नाम पर सरचार्ज वसूल करती है, अगर वे ट्रेनें सुपरफास्ट स्पीड से न चलें और वक्त पर आपको अपनी मंजिल पर न पहुंचाएं तो क्या आपको उसका

पैसा वापस नहीं मिलना चाहिए? यह सवाल इसलिए कि शुक्रवार को संसद के पटल पर रखी गई सीएजी की रिपोर्ट में भी यही कहा गया है। रिपोर्ट में बताया गया है कि रेलवे 'सुपरफास्ट सरचार्ज' के नाम पर करोड़ों रुपये वसूलती है, लेकिन सुपरफास्ट तमगे वाली कई ट्रेनें न तो सुपरफास्ट स्पीड से चलती हैं और न ही वक्त पर अपने गंतव्य तक पहुंचती हैं।
सीएजी की रिपोर्ट में बताया गया है कि नॉर्थ सेंट्रल रेलवे (NCR) और साउथ सेंट्र्ल रेलवे (SCR) ने 'सुपरफास्ट' सरचार्ज के नाम पर यात्रियों से 11.17 करोड़ रुपये वसूले, लेकिन उनकी कुछ सुपरफास्ट ट्रेनें 95% से ज्यादा बार लेट हुईं।
रेलवे बोर्ड के मुताबिक, 55 किलोमीटर प्रति घंटा से ज्यादा की रफ्तार वाली ट्रेनें सुपरफास्ट ट्रेनों की श्रेणी में आती हैं। 2013-14 से 2015-16 तक NCR और SCR में इन ट्रेनों की आवाजाही को लेकर किए गए अध्ययन से पता चला कि 13.48% से लेकर 95.17% दिनों तक, ये ट्रेनें अपनी मंजिल पर देर से पहुंचीं। कुल मिलाकर 21 सुपरफास्ट ट्रेनें अपने संचालन के 16,804 दिनों में से 3,000 दिन लेट रहीं क्योंकि ये ट्रेनें 'सुपरफास्ट' स्पीड हासिल नहीं कर पाईं।
इसी तरह 2013 से 2016 के बीच कोलकाता-आगरा कैंट सुपरफास्ट ट्रेन का अध्ययन करने पर पता चला कि यह ट्रेन 145 में से 138 दिन अपने गंतव्य पर देर से पहुंची। फिलहाल ऐसा कोई नियम नहीं है कि अगर ट्रेन लेट हो जाए तो यात्रियों को उसका पैसा लौटाया जाए। अभी सिर्फ यह सुविधा है कि अगर कोई ट्रेन तीन घंटे से ज्यादा लेट होती है तो टिकट डिपॉजिट अगेंस्ट रिजर्वेशन (TDR) के जरिए यात्री को उसका रिफंड मिल सकता है।
रेलवे के मुताबिक, सुपरफास्ट सरचार्ज अलग-अलग क्लास के लिए अलग होता है। उदाहरण के लिए, जनरल कोच के लिए यह 15 रुपये है, स्लीपर के लिए यह 30 रुपये है, एसी के लिए यह 45 रुपये है (चेयर कार, एसी-3 इकॉनमी, एसी-3, एसी-2) और एसी फर्स्ट एग्जिक्युटिव क्लास के लिए यह 75 रुपये है। यह सरचार्ज 1 अप्रैल, 2013 से लागू है। आगरा डिविजनल कमर्शल मैनेजर संचित त्यागी ने कहा, 'ट्रेनें अगर सुपरफास्ट स्पीड नहीं पकड़ पाती हैं, तो इसके पीछे कई कारण होते हैं और फिर इनकी वजह से ही ट्रेन लेट होती हैं। इनमें सबसे मुख्य कारण हैं- ट्रैक्स का मेनटेनेंस, सिग्नल में गड़बड़ी, इमर्जेंसी ब्रेक्स और ट्रेन हादसे।
जब यह पूछा गया कि क्या रेलवे को ट्रेन लेट होने की स्थिति में सुपरफास्ट सरचार्ज यात्रियों को लौटाना नहीं चाहिए, त्यागी ने कहा, 'अभी ऐसा कोई नियम नहीं है कि अगर कोई ट्रेन लेट होती है तो यात्रियों को पैसा रिफंड किया जाए, लेकिन अगर कोई यात्री टीडीआर फाइल करता है तो उसे रिफंड दिया जा सकता है।' ऐसे में सवाल यह है कि ग्राहकों को जागरूक करने के लिए कई तरह के विज्ञापन और कार्यक्रम चलाने वाली सरकार, क्या रेलवे के मामले में नहीं कहेगी- जागो ग्राहक जागो।

Jul 10 2017 (23:34)   Late trains, dirty stations throw Indian Railways off track

Indian Railways is notorious for delay in train services. According to a survey by travel search application Ixigo, the Manduadih-Rameswaram Weekly Express tops the list of latecomer trains, with the highest average delay time of 11.5 hours.
Manduadih is in Uttar Pradesh and the train travels a little more than 2,000 km to Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu. The survey was conducted among the 20-odd million customers of Ixigo. The other worst-performing trains include Himgiri SuperFast (SF) Express from Howrah to Jammu Tawi, with 9.3 hours average delay time, and the Jan Nayak Express between Amritsar in Punjab and Darbhanga in Bihar, with a delay time of 8.9 hours.
The

survey also looked at the favourite railway stations for passengers. Vadodara topped the list, followed by Nagpur and Howrah stations. Among the lowest rated stations were New Delhi, Pune and Kanpur.
In terms of favourite trains, the top three were the Bikaner-Delhi SF Express, Mumbai-Jaisalmer SF Express and the New Delhi Duronto Express. The worst-rated trains were the Patna-Kota Express, Jharkhand Express and Seemanchal Express.
Aloke Bajpai, co-founder and chief executive of Ixigo, said: “This survey takes into account the 200,000 user ratings and reviews on our app. We noted that cleanliness is very important for travellers at railway stations, which is why Tatanagar Junction ranked at the top.”
And, “Rajkot Junction received very positive reviews owing to its high standard of safety, which is every traveller’s paramount concern. Food at railway stations is something most Indian travellers appreciate and Davangere in Karnataka stood out as the top station, serving good food. Travellers rated the Bikaner-Delhi SF Express as the cleanest train and the Ahmedabad-Mumbai Duronto Express as the train serving the best food.”
Ixigo has become one of India’s largest train information apps, with five million monthly active users; it apparently helps 800,000 train travellers every day, from a little more than 200 places, with features such as PNR (passenger name record) prediction for waiting list tickets, train PNR status, running status, platform number, coach position and the like.

Wrong information : data collected and shows by Ixigo is not genuine , Manduadih Rameshwaram exp normally run before time last 3 month. Himgiri also run only 1 hr /2 hrs late now a days. Followings are most wanted late running trains :
1. 12402 Magadh Exp 2. 12873/74 Jharkhand Exp 3. Mahananda Sikkim Exp 4. Swatantrata Senani Exp have been running late since long. Magadh AND Jharkhand running late since 2007.अगर कोई रेलवे पर मुक़दमा कर दे की वो क्यों सुपरफास्ट चार्जेज ले रहे हैं १२४०२ मगध और १२८७३/७४ झारखण्ड एक्सप्रेस के लिए तो रेलवे को पिछले सात साल का पैसा रिफंड करना पड़ सकता है। सोचिये कितना बड़ा रिफंड होगा।

This is not a real research and it is based on current data only. Data study from 2005 to 2017 shows 1. 12401/12402 Magadh Express 2. 12873/74 Jharkhand Exp 3 . 13007-08 Toofan Exp are worst train to use. In new list 1. Swatantrata Senani added , it has been running late since 2013 not before that. Above mentioned train are running late on daily basis. 12331/31 Himgiri exp record is not too bad now.
