Sep 07 2016 (12:06)   Railway minister recommends end to social subsidies

Union Minister Suresh Prabhu proposed an end to railway subsidies to defence personnel, senior citizens and students. He said that these subsidies cost around Rs 30,000 crore and should be borne by the ministries concerned. The minister has also proposed doing away with separate railway budget. For this, he has written a letter to the finance minister.
However, the end of subsidies will not cause any  increase in passenger fare or freight charges, said the ministry. “Such an increase is not  possible. It will be counterproductive for Railways. The freight charges have reached a saturation point and high passenger fare will discourage higher passenger traffic,” said a railway official.
to the ministry, the railways will earn from other sources. It says that development of stations in a commercial manner and advertisements on stations and trains can be two major sources of earnings. The Railways has chalked out an ambitious plan of generating resources through TV screens at stations. Advertisements on these screens bring huge revenue, they claim.
The move of doing away with the subsidies is considered to be the part of implementation of Bibek Debroy Committee report. It has recommended wide-ranging reforms in the Railways and suggested its commercialisation. 
It has asked the railways to get rid of social obligations and function like a commercial organisation. The committee has suggested that the Railways should not run hospitals and schools. It should also not do anything which can not make an earning.

Completely agree, MPs ko to bilkul bhi subsidy nahin milni chahiye!! On top of it, Govt. employees earn good enough to pay for their seats. All Govt. employees above class 4 must not be given any type of subsidy.

सप्त क्रांति का विस्तार समस्तीपुर जं तक करना सही निर्णय है या गलत।....मेरे लिए ये निर्णय गलत है।अगर समस्तीपुर को ट्रेन देना है तो नई ट्रेन दे लेकिन विस्तार न करवाये।

अगर एक्सटेंशन होता है तो सर्दी में इस ट्रेन की हालत बहुत ज्यादा ख़राब हो जाएगी| MFP में ही ट्रेन को कम टाइम मिलता था रिलैक्स करने का अब तो प्रेशर और बढ़ जायेगा|

A Mumbai to Delhi train journey with in 13 hours could come true in the first week of August. As part of the final phase of trials, the nine-coach Talgo - the Spanish-manufactured high speed train will undertake three trips between Mumbai and Delhi between August 1 and 5.
The Western Railway (WR) sources said that the train will depart from New Delhi at 7.55 pm on August 1, and will maintain a speed of 130 kmph during the entire journey. "The Talgo officials have said that at this s ..

Maintaining 130kmph during entire journey seems improbable esp. on the tight curves in BRC-RTM section. The news may mean to say that the booked speed through out the journey shall be 130kmph.
If all the line clear signal is given through out the route with just minimal single stop for crew change, the train is most likely to complete NDLS-BCT journey in 13 hours. Even LHB Rajdhani rake can do it in about 14 hours under same conditions.
Main practical problem for 13 hr commercial operation of Talgo train
is, can other trains on the route (which will be overtaken by Talgo) maintain their punctuality?
