Reserve Bank of India printed all the scheduled 23 languages value in all the currency notes in a small area of 1.2 centimetres length × 3.5 cm depth.
Likewise our Indian Railway also has to be written all the scheduled 23 languages Station Names in 1000 centimeters length × 1500 cm depth steel board ( 3feet length × 5 feet depth ) .This is highly possible one.
These 23 languages Station Names Steel plate name board have to be fixed in all the platforms and the Main
Ticket counters of all the Indian Railway stations including Metro stations.
All the Indian peoples are well satisfied on seeing their Language Name in all the Indian Railway Stations.
Our Namma Metro Languages problems are amicably solved .

One of the better suggestations received....
Definitely a much better idea, instead of promoting a foreign language like Urdu in the name of 'appeashment politics', Indian Railways would do good to promote Indian Languages!!!

CM seeks PM’s intervention
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene to set up an exclusive railway zone for Kerala with Ernakulam as the headquarters for expediting the development of the railway network of the State. In a letter to the Prime Minister and Union Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu, the Chief Minister said the railway divisions of Thiruvananthapuram and Palakkad can be merged to set up the peninsular zone. The zone should include the rail corridor from Kanyakumari to Mangaluru, he pointed out.
Mr. Vijayan urged
them to end the move to hand over the Thiruvananthapuram-Tirunelveli and Nagercoil-Kanyakumari railway lines to the adjacent Madurai railway division.

No votes ( one vote 0.7% ) polled for President and Vice President NiL MP votes for BJP Venkaiah Naidu from Kerala.
Then how the Kerala political person pressurized our BJP railway Minister with RSS background.
Tamilnadu politicians casted 57% of MLA and 50 MP votes to Presidential candidate .Kerala with 0.7 %.lone MLA vote .
Forthcoming VP election Tamilnadu MP 50+ voted for Hon.Vengaiah Naidu of BJP.
But Kerala NIL vote MP for BJP .
How did Kerala expects favouritism from NDA like in UPA regime which acted 100% favouritism to Kerala against Tamilnadu with 0% favouritism even though Tamilnadu central ministers are in UPA in Railway matters.

dont think politics go like this. It may never work
sometimes bribe wont help. adjustment wont sufficient
it is time to show unity demand. from peasent to politicians
for environment to education. for Railways to waterways
should ask what we deserved what we right to have
Avoid what we dont need on whatever imperialism on us
Stars are moving, times are changing. Reforms are coming
With hopes,affection in hand non violence truth as path
Always praying and thinking for better life in this world
A world with sustainable technology and enough resouces
A world where everyone knows their role
A world Where no species dies on hunger
A world where Arnaments and armour is name sake
A world where technology works for all people
A world where People work peacefully for cause
if u can do that. these topics will never come here.

Yesterday (06:32)   10 Smart Cities to have smart rail stations

Ernakulam Junction among stations to be redeveloped
Ernakulam Junction figures on the list of 10 railway stations across the country to be redeveloped by the special purpose vehicle to be created under the Union Ministries of Railways and Urban Development.
Tirupati, Delhi, Sarai Rohilla, Nellore, Madgaon, Lucknow, Gomtinagar, Kota, Thane New are the other railway stations to be redeveloped in partnership with the respective Smart Cities. Kochi was the first city to make it to the Smart City list from the State and recently Thiruvananthapuram had made it in the third round.
The Ministries have decided on a new entity to develop these 10 stations with world-class facilities.
The Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA) under the Union Ministry of Railways and National Building Construction Corporation (NBCC), a public sector unit of the Ministry of Urban Development, has signed an agreement to take up the remodelling works.
A Smart City with a smart railway station is the new concept.
A Special Purpose Vehicle will be floated by the RLDA and NBCC to execute the station redevelopment project. A self-financing model will be adopted by the joint venture company for redevelopment.
The expertise of the NBCC will be used to prepare the Detailed Project Report and business model. The RLDA will help the NBCC in arranging all requisite data about the stations and get vacant land allotted from Railways as per the approved master plan of each station. A top railway official told The Hindu that the new approach adopted to redevelop Ernakulam Junction had not been communicated to the division.
“We have information only about the development of A1 stations through the PPP mode.”
The joint venture will also have to enter into city support agreement with the respective Smart City authorities and local bodies to obtain support relating to development of approach infrastructure.
The move comes at a time when an initiative to upgrade Kozhikode railway station, an A1 railway station with passenger earnings of Rs. 60 crore a year, through the Public-Private Partnership mode did not meet with success. The station is one of the 21 in the State identified for upgrade by leveraging the real estate potential and airspace in and around railway station.
Rail Land Development Authority, and NBCC sign agreement
SPV will be floated by the RLDA and NBCC to execute the station redevelopment project

Bus bay / car and Autos have to be embark and disembark passenger in the first floor of the proposed Smart Railway stations which shall be connected to the Foot Over Bridge connecting all the platforms.
So as passenger are need not be claimed in Ramp / steps/escalator to the first floor .
Especially Earnakulam junction station has to be arranged with first floor ramp for Buses /cars/ autos .

Jul 23 2017 (20:25)   Indian Trains Are 'Super-Fast' Only On Papers, On Tracks Almost All Of Them Run Late Daily

Southern Railway^~   180 news posts
Entry# 2361011   News Entry# 309311         Tags   Past Edits
North Central Railway (NCR) and South Central Railway (SCR) collected Rs 11.17 crores from passengers as 'superfast' surcharges, but some of their super-fast trains were delayed more than 95% times, said a CAG report tabled in Parliament on Friday.
According to the Railway Board, trains with average speed of 55 kmph or more come under the category of super-fast trains.
A study of data on punctuality of superfast trains from 2013-14 to 2015-16 in NCR and SCR, however, revealed that such trains reached the destination late between 13.48% and 95.17% of the days
on which they ran. In total, 21 superfast trains were delayed on 3,000 days out of 16,804 days because they failed to attain the 'superfast' speed.
At present, there is no rule or policy to refund money if a train is delayed. Only when a person files a ticket deposit against reservation (TDR) against a train delayed for more than three hours is a refund possible.
According to the railways, 'superfast' surcharges vary for different class of coaches. For example, it is Rs 15 for general coaches, Rs 30 for sleeper, Rs 45 for AC (chair car, AC-3 economy, AC-3, AC-2 classes) and Rs 75 for AC First/Executive class which were effective from April 1, 2013.
Agra divisional commercial manager Sanchit Tyagi said, "There are scores of factors which lead to trains not achieving their superfast speed, thus causing delays. Some the prominent factors are the maintenance of tracks, signal glitches, emergency brakes and accidents which contribute in the late operations of railways."
Asked if the railways should not be returning passengers the so-called 'superfast' surcharges in such cases, Tyagi said, "There are no such rules or policy to refund money if a train is delayed, but when a passenger files a TDR (ticket deposit against reservation) against a train delayed for than three hours, then a refund is possible."
The study on the movement of some of the superfast trains between 2013 and 2016 revealed that Kolkata-Agra Cantt Superfast (SF in railway jargon) was late 138 days out of 145. Similarly, Jaipur-Allahabad SF was late 68.34% out of 578 days of operations between 2014 and 2016. Lucknow-Agra Cantt SF was late 58.99% out of 851 days, Chhatrapati Shivaji- Hyderabad SF was late on 682 days out of 1,055, Guntur-Secundrabad SF was late 41.33% out of 1,096 days. The least delayed train among 21 selected was Kathgodam-Kanpur SF, which reported 13.48% late out of 141 days.

State government Bus transportation also named their services LSS Limited Stop Services,Expresses, Deluxe,Semi- Deluxe ,Non Stop,End to End,1 to 3 stops super,superfast Luxurious services ,AC class ,White board,green board,Yellow board Scrolling board etc .But actual time of running are just 20 minutes earlier for 50 km services and some times delayed over the Ordinary services.
But fares are collected 2 to 3 times over ordinary services. They mostly stopped ordinary low fares services like our IR very much interested in fully AC trains/ Humsafar etc for extracting higher fares from the passenger. IR policy nowadays that they want to convert all the long distance passenger as express with AC coaches .Poor persons are penalized by IR and State government Bus services
and extract higher fares without any comforts in services.
The travel time has been just an hour less for the 400 km express trains over passenger services ,but fares are doubled .

Jul 23 2017 (08:31)   ‘Do not use Cauvery water in trains’

rdb*^   130904 news posts
Entry# 2360983   News Entry# 309266         Tags   Past Edits
Divisional Railway Manager of Salem Division, Hari Shankar Verma, has said that water drawn from River Cauvery in Erode is polluted and is yellow in colour as it cannot be used for filling the trains. On Saturday, he along with divisional engineers and officials inspected the tracks at Erode Junction for implementing the diamond crossing track system by which two railway lines cross each other forming the shape of diamonds at the crossing point.
He told reporters here that Erode Junction continues to be a water filling station for long-distance trains and hence all the trains were permitted to halt in the junction. But the current pollution level in the river is alarming as water could not be used for filling the
trains, he added. The DRM said that the issue had already been taken up with the district administration and to the State government for necessary action. If the pollution level continues, water would be drawn from Mettur and supplied to trains at Salem Railway Junction. If it is done, Erode junction will lose its importance, he added.
Mr. Hari Shankar Verma said that trains from Tiruppur and Salem junctions had to wait for a while before entering the Erode Junction. Hence, inspection is being done for implementing the diamond crossing track system so that trains can enter the platforms directly without delay.
He said that religious establishments had encroached the railway land near the Erode junction and notices were served three months ago to those officer bearers. However, no one has come forward from these establishments to hold talks with the railways.
The DRM said that due to shortage and increase in sand price, installation of escalator and lift facility at the junction got delayed and added that works will be completed by this year-end.

Watering at Salem junction station is a good move .And so most of the south bound trains are diverted in the shortest route of Namakkal and Karur .
Engine reversal also avoided in Erode jn since routed via Namakkal and saved 40 km running time
and Engine reversal 15 minutes .Economic operations are ensured.So expedite Mettur Piped Water supply project to Salem jn have to be expedited and the works may be awarded to the well experienced TWAD board for execution.
