Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) president Shantaram Naik (MP) today said Thivim Station was a gateway of Goa to those coming to the state by railways and hence Konkan Railway should make all efforts to make it a smart station.
Speaking after inaugurating a railway project of 90 lakh, he said Konkan Railways had to develop Canacona and Bali stations on Konkan Railway route so that the route was used by the office-going Goans.
Mr Naik said the road leading to Thivim Railway Station needed to be beautified so that tourist getting down
at Thivim station got impressed.
Stating that Goa was part of Hubli Division which did not take any interest to obtain MPLAD funds which he offered to develop Vasco Railway Station, he said Goa should be given the status of an independent Railway Division as it was an independent state.
Shivdas Kambli, President of Thivim Block Congress Committee, Sarpanch Tripti Shinde, Protocol Officer of Konkan Railway Baban Ghatge, among others were present on the occasion.UNI AKM NV SV 1247

I would like to warn those in Goa being up in arms against track doubling as well as any rail development. Please realise there is no alternative to it, the best (which will turn out to be the worst tomorrow) you can do is postpone it and not do away with it. This postponing will be accompanied by indescribable harm in the long run by way of stunted railway growth, resulting in overall lack of development. When realisation dawns, it will be too late and you may be left far behind. No use then crying over spilt milk .Just as Kerala is now. You have a live example.

Oct 12 2016 (12:27)   Security stepped up at Pune Railway station over rising robbery cases

After a gang of autorickshaw drivers was nabbed for robbing the passengers after picking them up from Pune Railway Station, the government Railway Police have increased the surveillance at the station premises and have started making announcements asking passengers to take precautions while boarding as well as during the travel.
Earlier this month, the cyber cell of Pune Police had busted a gang of autorickshaw drivers who had looted over 50 people in a year. They picked up passengers from the Pune station and stopped their vehicle in midway, claiming a break down. They would then offer to arrange for an alternative vehicle and called an acquaintance, who later robbed the passenger.
are taking all efforts to fix this issue, starting by making announcements at the station to aware passengers of the possibility of people using nefarious means. We have also increased the patrolling at the premises to weed out such elements. We are also trying to keep out make it compulsory for all the rickshaw drivers to display the identity cards issued by the Regional Transport Office (RTO).”
Apart from latest allegations, the rickshaw drivers at the station have also been alleged of overcharging, behaving rudely and harassing passengers by nagging them to hire the autorickshaw the moment they exit from the main gate.
Shreedhar Salunke, a salesperson employed with a Pimple Gurav-based firm, complained that although there is a prepaid autorickshaw booth at the station, it’s difficult to hire the rickshaw. “As soon as you exit the main gate, they pounce on you but none of them is ready to ply by the metre. Even if you try hiring one from the prepaid booth, there are hardly any rickshaws,” said Salunke. The GRP, on it’s part, said that it’s the responsibility of the Legal Metrology Department and the traffic police to rein in the rickshaw drivers who don’t ply by the metre.

To the best extent possible people should go for tech based Ola etc. My experience has been pretty good with them. For going to Hadapsar/Magarpatta from Pune Jn, autos ask for upwards of Rs 200/-. I engaged Ola on two occasions (four times - both ways) and the amount was only Rs 150/-(remind you with AC) and via Koregaon Park. If one is to take the Cantonment toll road, need to pay Rs 30/- extra. Still much less than autos and incomparably convenient. Very decent and well behaved drivers too. Good work Ola and Uber.

I feel, as a frequent user, the new PF should be used for long distance trains. Bcoz of the access convenience it offers compared to the other four. No need to use foot over bridge or escalator. Getting into and out of the platform will be extremely convenient. More so, let the people enjoy this comfort henceforth, as all along they did not have this facility at their station. Thumbs up my PGT Jn.
