IRCTC Indian Railway रेलवे आए दिन खुद में बदलाव कर रही है, इसी बीच रेलवे की तरफ से एक और बड़ा बदलाव किया गया है लेकिन उससे पहले हम ये जान लें कि क्या आपको पता है कि रेलव टिकटों की बुकिंग की भी लिमिटेशन होती है. महीने में एक यूजर आईडी से 6 से अधिक टिकटों की बुकिंग नहीं की जा सकती है.
लेकिन अब रेलवे ने इसे बदल दिया है. जी हां, अब महीने भर में आप 12 टिकटों की बुकिंग करा सकते हैं लेकिन इसके लिए रेलवे ने थोड़ा बदलाव किया है. इसके लिए यूजर को IRCTC पर जाकर My Profile में Aadhaar KYC में जाकर खुद को वेरिफाई करवाना होगा. यह वेरिफिकेशन ओटीपी के जरिए होता है.

Oct 21 2019 (14:43)   In a First in Railways' History, IRCTC to Pay Rs 1.62L as Relief to 950 Passengers for Tejas Express Delay

New Delhi: A delay of more than three hours in the running of Delhi-Lucknow Tejas Express on October 19 has cost IRCTC around Rs 1.62 lakh which the railway subsidiary will pay through its insurance companies as compensation to around 950 passengers, a first in the history of Indian Railways, officials said on Monday.
.
The train started from Lucknow at around 9.55 am instead of its scheduled departure at 6.10 am and reached New Delhi at around 3.40 pm instead of 12.25 pm. It departed from New Delhi at around 5.30 pm

instead of 3.35 pm and reached Lucknow at around 11.30pm instead of scheduled 10.05pm.While from Lucknow to Delhi there were 450 passengers who will get Rs 250 as compensation each, from Delhi to Lucknow there were around 500 passengers who will be paid Rs 100 each, the official said.
.
One of the officials also said that each passenger can avail the compensation through a link of the insurer which has been provided with every ticket of the Tejas Express. He also said that the delay on October 19 had been caused by a derailment near Kanpur.
.
Since it began commercial operations from October six for six days a week, the train has maintained a tight schedule. On October 20, the Lucknow-Delhi Tejas reached 24 minutes late while the Delhi-Lucknow Tejas arrived right on time.
.
Under IRCTC's policy, an amount of Rs 100 will be paid in case the delay is for over an hour and Rs 250 for delay of over two hours, the IRCTC said ahead of the launch of its first train. This travel insurance also includes a cover of Rs 1 lakh against household theft and robbery during travel period of the passengers, again a first for those travelling on board trains.

Recently, Chairman of Railway Board, Ashwani Lohani stated that the electrification of Indian Railways' tracks has been identified as one of the major potential areas for reducing the overall annual expenditure of the national transporter.
Indian Railways electrification drive: To electrify the last leg of about 13,000 km of Indian Railways tracks, Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Cabinet is likely to approve the plan today. According to a source quoted in a TOI report, in order to electrify the tracks, Indian Railways is likely to invest an amount of around Rs 14,000 crore. Officials said that the electrification work of the tracks will be undertaken as a part of “Mission 100 per cent electrification” in the next three years. These tracks are spread

over across a dozen states including Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, West Bengal and Odisha.
Recently, Chairman of Railway Board, Ashwani Lohani stated that the electrification of Indian Railways’ tracks has been identified as one of the major potential areas for reducing the overall annual expenditure of the national transporter.
While speaking at a conference on ‘E-Mobility in Indian Railways’, which was organised by the Railway Ministry recently through Institution of Railways Electrical Engineers (IREE) in association with NITI Aayog, Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha claimed that electrification of tracks in Indian Railways would save an estimated amount of Rs 13,000 crore per annum in fuel bill. In addition to this, he also claimed that after the electrification of railway lines is completed, it will reduce carbon emissions by around 3.4 million tonnes a year.
Meanwhile, the minister also recently informed that the actual savings due to initiatives in energy procurement have been an amount of Rs 7,504 crore, so far. He also said that the national transporter should increase their solar power target and also go with the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clean and green energy. He further added that the railways should look into the options of ethanol blending.
As per the government data, nearly 8,400 km of railway tracks have been electrified in the last four years as compared to electrification of 2,600 km during the previous four years under UPA-II.
