For those who were unable to read a news item:
================================================== =================
CCI orders probe against Indian Railways, IRCTC
================================================== =================
The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has ordered an investigation against Indian
Railways and its arm IRCTC for alleged unfair practices related to compulsory sale of food to travellers on some trains and ticket booking.
This is the second major probe by the fair trade watchdog against a central government enterprise, after Coal India.
The Competition Commission of India's (CCI) latest investigation came on a complaint filed against the Ministry of Railways and the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Ltd (IRCTC).
The probe would also look into the possible role of individuals related to the matter.
"The Commission is of the opinion that prima facie, a case of contravention of the provisions of the (Competition) Act is made out against IR (Indian Railways) and IRCTC," the watchdog said in an order made public today.
Passengers being compulsory charged for catering facility on the Rajdhani and other trains, as well as alleged unfair conditions in the sale of Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duranto catering and travel services "prima facie" appear to be violating competition norms, CCI said.
Besides, levying premium charges for calls made to 139, which is the railway enquiry service, restricting the services of agents authorised by IRCTC, among others, have also come under the scanner.
"Service charge imposed on e-tickets being non-refundable even if the passenger needed to cancel the ticket; e-wallet scheme with unreasonable conditions appear to be some of their conducts" which have also been found to be prima facie in violation of competition rules.
As per the order dated February 28, the Commission has asked its Director General (DG) to carry out a detailed probe into the matter.
The DG would also look at the role, if any, of persons in these entities who were responsible for the conduct of the businesses.
"Transportation of passenger through railway in India" appears to be the relevant market in the present case, the order said.
Such a market would also include the ancillary segment like ticketing, catering on board and platform facilities, among others, it added.
The allegations of the three complainants essentially relate to the conduct of Indian Railways with respect to the services provided by its subsidiary IRCTC.

शहर सहित जिलेभर के रहवासियों को इंदौर-चंडीगढ़ के रूप में नई ट्रेन की सौगात मिल गई है। उक्त ट्रेन इंदौर से चलकर बुधवार को सुबह 3.45 बजे ब्यावरा रेलवे स्टेशन पर पहुंची।
नई ट्रेन को लेकर सुबह के समय केन्द्रीय मंत्री ज्योतिराधित्य सिंधिया, सांसद नारायणसिंह आमलाबे एवं कांग्रेस नेता तुलसी सिलावट ब्यावरा स्टेशन पर पहुंचे, जहां पहले से मौजूद लोगों द्वारा ट्रेन के साथ स्टाफ, सांसद एवं विधायक का साफ बंधवाकर स्वागत किया। गौरतलब है कि यह ट्रेन सप्ताह में एक दिन आएगी। टेन प्रति गुरूवार को इंदौर से 5.45 बजे रवाना होगी, जो ब्यावरा स्टेशन पर 11.45 बजे पहुंचेगी।
मिनट के स्टापेज के बाद चंडीगढ़ के लिए रवाना होगी। इसी प्रकार शुक्रवार को ट्रेन चंडीगढ़ से चलकर ब्यावरा रेलवे स्टेशन पर शनिवार को 11.45 बजे पहुंचेगी। यहां पर दो मिनट के स्टापेज के बाद इंदौर के लिए रवाना हो जाएगी। स्वागत के दौरान जिला इंकाध्यक्ष रामचंद्र दांगी, पूर्व विधायक पुरूषोत्तम दांगी, डॉ. भारत वर्मा, समीर खान, घनश्याम वर्मा सहित अन्य लोग उपस्थित थे।
बाहर नहीं आए सिंधिया: इंदौर से चलकर चंडीगढ़ के लिए जाने वाली नई ट्रेन को लेकर पहुंचने की जिम्मेदारी तो केन्द्रीय मंत्री ज्योतिरादित्य सिंधिया को सौंपी गई थी, लेकिन वे कांग्रेस महासचिव दिग्विजय सिंह के क्षेत्र में ट्रेन से बाहर भी नहीं निकले।
सुबह 3.45 बजे ट्रेन जैसे ही स्टेशन पहुंची, तो स्वागतकर्ताओं ने केन्द्रीय मंत्री के ट्रेन से बाहर आने का इंतजार किया, लेकिन वे बाहर नहीं आए। उनके साथ मौजूद लोगों ने बताया कि साहब, तो आराम कर रहे हैं। वे बाहर नहीं आएंगे। तब कार्यकर्ताओं द्वारा सांसद व ट्रेन के स्टाफ का ही स्वागत किया गया।
एक दिन में चार ट्रेनें
शनिवार को जिले के लोगों को इंदौर की और सफर करने के लिए एक ही दिन में चार ट्रेनों की सुविधा मिल सकेगी। सुबह 10.35 बजे कोटा-इंदौर स्थानीय स्टेशन पर आएगी इसके ठीक बाद 11.45 बजे चंडीगढ़ इंदौर आएगी। दोपहर 2.15 बजे जबलपुर-इंदौर एवं रात में भिंड-इंदौर इंटरसिटी आएगी। शनिवार को चार ट्रेन विकल्प के रूप में मिलेंगी।
जिले में एक ही स्टापेज
इंदौर से चंड़ीगढ़ जाते समय एवं चंडीगढ़ से इंदौर के लिए जाते समय उक्त ट्रेन जिले में केवल एकमात्र ब्यावरा रेलवे स्टेशन पर ही रूकेगी। ब्यावरा के अलावा जिले के अन्य किसी भी स्टेशन पर नहीं रूकेगी। ऎसे में जिले के लोगों को उक्त ट्रेन में सफर करने के लिए ब्यावरा स्टेशन पर ही पहुंचना पड़ेगा।
