4 local officials suspended; ‘lapses in maintenance work led to Khatauli accident’
The Railway Ministry on Sunday sent three top officials on leave, suspended four local level officials and transferred another official after prima facie finding lapses in the maintenance work that led to the derailment of Puri-Haridwar Utkal Express in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday and claimed at least 21 lives.
Secretary-level officer and Railway Board Member Engineering A.K. Mittal, General Manager Northern Railways R.N. Kulshrestha and Divisional Railway Manager Delhi R.N. Singh were sent on leave. The divisional engineer and senior divisional
engineer of the railway section were suspended while the central track engineer of the Northern Railway was transferred.
According to a former Railway Board Chairman, this is one of the rare instances when a Railway Board Member has been sent on leave.
No laxity: Suresh Prabhu
The action comes after Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said on Sunday that he “will not allow laxity in operations by the Board” and ordered the Railway Board Chairman to fix responsibility within a day of the accident.
Senior Railway Ministry officials told The Hindu that welding work was underway near the Khatauli railway station in Uttar Pradesh, leaving a portion of the track without rails when the Utkal Express ran over it and derailed, as per the prima facie investigation. There were lapses at multiple levels in the track maintenance work, which was being carried out without taking due permission, before the accident on Saturday evening.
The track maintenance work was routine and could have been carried out even a day later, according to a top Railway Ministry official.
“It is prima facie found that there was a routine maintenance work going on related to welding of track joints near the Khatauli railway station. It was a normal maintenance work where you cut out a piece of track, put another one and weld it. The welding process takes about an hour,” the Railway Ministry official explained.
The divisional engineer, in consultation with the divisional operating manager, is required to take written consent from the stationmaster to get the ‘traffic block’ during which maintenance work related to the rail track is to be conducted. “Nobody is authorised to open the rail track without taking a (traffic) block and that too in the face of a running train — it is criminal. They started maintaining the track without the block,” the official claimed.
The Government Railway Police have filed a case under Sections 151, 154 and 427 of the Railways Act 1989 for causing damage to railway property, endangering safety of persons travelling by rail by an act of rash or negligence and mischief causing damage, respectively.
Commissioner of Railway Safety, Northern Circle, Shailesh Kumar Pathak will begin an inquiry on Monday.

In Emergency situation when fish Plate or track has gone faulty ,if station master receive any Message form Engineering side or from General public,they should inform to higher up .If track was not ok for running the train , derailment could have occurred even if maintenance team was not the NARCO test should be conducted for knowing whether , information was given to Station Manager or station master.
Over qualified Trackman,Gangman are a big issue in railways .
The MBA and Engineering degree holders r now Trackman in railways,and they
are a big liability.

Even if they come to know some of the employees are at fault, railways can't take any strict punishment on them? That is the power of trade unions.

Right Pukhraya incident saw DRM transfer ,but no further action below Section Engineer /JE is seen.If the Red flag was not put up ,it is the responsibility of Trackman or JE?
If JE ask them to put red flag, all Gangs up and say we are working from 15 years don't teach us.
So entire system is collapsed.Lot of rail accident in UP only suggest that,Corruption,indescipline ,and Trade unions interference in day to day working should also be looked into.

Aug 15 2017 (10:33)   2020 के बाद चलेंगी सेमी हाईस्पीड ट्रेनें

2020 के बाद चलेंगी सेमी हाईस्पीड ट्रेनें
Click here to enlarge image
टन प्रतिमीटर है भार वहन क्षमता
किलोमीटर की दूरी पर डीएफसी लाइन में पूर्णत: स्वचालित सिग्नल
टन एक्सेल लोड की होती है डीएफसी
में रेल पटरियों की क्षमता
टन एक्सेल लोड की है साधारण ट्रैक की क्षमता
नई दिल्ली / एजेंसीरेलवे बोर्ड ने फैसला किया है कि जिन दोहरीकृत रेलमार्गो को तीसरी लाइन के लिए चुना गया है, उनमें तीसरी लाइन का निर्माण डेडीकेटेड फ्रेट कॉरीडोर (डीएफसी) के स्तर का किया जाएगा। भारतीय रेलवे के क्षमता विस्तार कार्यक्रम को तेज करते हुए उन्हीं मार्गो पर उसी स्तर की चौथी लाइन बिछाने की भी मंज़ूरी दी जाएगी। इससे 2020 के बाद देश में प्रमुख मार्गो पर सेमी हाईस्पीड ट्रेनें चलाना संभव हो जाएगा।आधिकारिक सूत्रों के अनुसार, रेलवे बोर्ड ने हाल ही एक बैठक में फैसला लिया है कि जहां कहीं भी तीसरी रेल लाइन बिछाने की स्वीकृति प्रदान की गई है और निर्माण शुरू नहीं हुआ है, वहां तीसरी लाइन का निर्माण डीएफसी के स्तर का किया जाएगा। अगर ज़रूरी हो तो चौथी लाइन के निर्माण को भी मंज़ूरी दी जाएगी। बोर्ड ने इसी माह सभी ज़ोनल रेलवे को इस आशय के निर्देश जारी किए हैं और डीएफसी स्तर पर तीसरी लाइन के निर्माण के लिए उपयुक्त सामग्री की खरीद एवं प्रयोग के लिए प्रस्ताव तैयार करने को कहा है। सूत्रों ने कहा कि तीसरी-चौथी लाइन बनने के तुरंत बाद उस मार्ग की मौजूदा पटरियों को भी डीएफसी स्तर तक उन्नत किया जाएगा। इससे गैर डीएफसी मार्ग पर भी मालगाड़ियों की रफ्तार भी बढ़ सकेगी। तीसरी लाइन को इस प्रकार से बनाया जाना है कि जरूरत पड़ने पर दोनों दिशाओं की ओर गाड़ियां चलाई जा सकें। तीसरी लाइन की सिगनलिंग एवं रूटिंग विशेष रूप से तैयार की जाएंगी। तीसरी लाइन के साथ चौथी लाइन बनाने की जगह छोड़ी जाएगी, ताकि जब भी चौथी लाइन बनाने का निर्णय हो तो केवल पटरी बिछाने का काम बाकी रहे ।

Jul 22 2017 (08:28)   9 दिन से घाटा झेल रही महामना, कोई नहीं जाना चाहता खजुराहो

भोपाल. 13 जुलाई को भोपाल से खजुराहो के बीच शुरू की गई महामना एक्सप्रेस रेलवे के लिए घाटे का सौदा साबित हो रही है। नौ दिन गुजर जाने के बावजूद इसकी 70 प्रतिशत सीटें खाली जा रही हैं। एेसे में घाटे से बचने के लिए रेलवे ने ट्रेन से सेकंड सिटिंग के चार कोच हटाने का निर्णय लिया है। 25 जुलाई से महामना एक्सप्रेस 10 कोच की चलेगी। अभी ट्रेन में 14 कोच हैं।
बता तें 13 जुलाई को रेलमंत्री सुरेश प्रभु ने गाड़ी संख्या 01263 भोपाल खजुराहो महामना एक्सप्रेस को वीडियो कॉन्फ्रेंसिंग के माध्यम से हरी झंडी दिखाकर रवाना किया था। राजधानी भोपाल से 15 जुलाई से यह ट्रेन गाड़ी संख्या 22163/22164 भोपाल-खजुराहो-भोपाल नियमित गाड़ी के रूप में चली थी। ट्रेन
में अभी कुल 14 कोच हैं। इनमें 09 कोच सेकंड सिटिंग,01 एसी चेयरकार, 02 सामान्य कोच और 02 एसएलआर कोच हैं। इनमें सेकेंड सिटिंग की और एसी चेयरकार की कुल सीटों की संख्या लगभग 1045 है। रेलवे के आरक्षण कार्यालय के आंकड़ों के अनुसार सेकंड सिटिंग कोच और एसी चेयरकार दोनो को मिलाकर प्रतिदिन बमुश्किल 300 से 350 आरक्षण होते हैं। शेष सीटें खाली जाती हैं।
स्टेशन और टाइमिंग दोनों गलत
रेलवे के जानकारों के अनुसार भोपाल रेलमंडल द्वारा शुरू की गई महामना एक्सप्रेस का स्टेशन और उसकी टाइमिंग दोनो गलत हैं। ट्रेन को सुबह की जगह रात में चलाया जाना चाहिए था। कारण कि रेलवे ने इस ट्रेन को मुख्यरूप से विश्व प्रसिद्ध पर्यटन खजुराहो के लिए चलाया है। सुबह 06.50 बजे चलने वाली यह ट्रने दोपहर 01.30 बजे खजुराहो पहुंचती है। एेसे में घूमने जाने वाले पर्यटक का आधा दिन तो ट्रेन में ही निकल जाता है। इसके बाद यदि पर्यटक को खजुराहो से भोपाल आना है तो उसे अगले दिन का इंतजार करना होगा। क्यों कि खजुराहो से यह ट्रेन दोपहर 04.15 बजे है जो कि रात 10.55 बजे भोपाल पहुंचती है। और केवल 02 से 03 घंटे में कोई भी पर्यटक खजुराहो को घूमकर वापस नही आ सकता। यही कारण है कि यात्री इस टे्रन में जाना नहीं चाह रहे।
वहीं दूसरे बड़ी गड़बड़ी ट्रेन के स्टेशन को लेकर है। अगर यह ट्रेन हबीबगंज से चलाई जाती तो ट्रेन को अधिक संख्या में यात्री मिलते। एक कारण यह है कि होशंगाबाद रोड, कोलार, मिसरोद, क्षेत्र में बड़ी संख्या में बुंदेलखंड में रहने वाले लोग हैं। जो कि छतरपुर, टीकमगढ़, खजुराहो आदि के रहने वाले हैं।
