Worst Decision Taken by IR
New Delhi: The Indian Railways has decided to do away with the pantry cars in long-distance trains and replace them with AC-3 tier coaches.
With the COVID-19 outbreak, special trains are being operated without pantry cars. Hence, the railway has decided to continue this system in post-COVID-19.
By discontinuing panty cars, the railway has estimated to generate an additional revenue of Rs 1,400 crore per annum. At present, over 350 trains are operating with pantry cars. All these pantry cars are functioning on a contract basis. Hence, the railway will not incur any

loss from removing pantry cars. However, thousands of contract workers will lose their jobs.
The authority has been planning to supply food prepared at base kitchens of major railway stations to passengers in long-distance trains. It is observed that passengers will not face any issues to get food with the launch of e-catering and food courts at railway stations.
IRCTC is in charge of catering in trains. The railway is also planning to establish base kitchens in more railway stations. Two major railway organisations, the National Federation of India Railwaymen and All India Railwaymen's Federation,, have welcomed the decision to remove pantry cars.
With the COVID-19 outbreak, the railway has already stopped distributing pillows and blankets in long-distance trains. Instead, passengers have been directed to purchase them from stations. Even after resuming regular services post COVID-19, the railway is unlikely to change this system.

I can see a lot of pantry staff guys are going to lose their jobs unless they get hire in base kitchens or someplace else by IRCTC. This Govt is suppose to create jobs not terminating existing ones.

May 08 2019 (12:17)   45 हजार बोतल रेलनीर रोज उत्पादन, मांग सिर्फ 31 हजार की फिर भी बिक रहा लोकल पानी

बिलासपुर से झारसुगुड़ा, शहडोल व नागपुर रूट के 100 से ज्यादा स्टेशनों पर सप्लाई नहीं कमीशन का खेल : रेलवे अफसर ऐसे हालात उत्पन्न करते हैं जिससे स्टेशनों तक न पहुंचे रेलनीर 
अब्दुल रिजवान। बिलासपुर. बिलासपुर से झारसुगुड़ा, शहडोल और नागपुर रूट के बीच के 100 से अधिक स्टेशनों तक रेल नीर की सप्लाई नहीं हो रही है। इसकी जगह यात्रियों में लोकल ब्रांड का पानी खपाया जा रहा है। जानकारों का कहना है कि लोकल ब्रांड का पानी खपाने की एवज में अफसरों को एक निश्चित कमीशन मिलता है, जिसके लिए वह ऐसे हालात उत्पन्न करते हैं कि रेलनीर यात्रियों और डिमांड वाले स्टेशनों तक पहुंच ही न सके। कुछ अफसरों की मिलीभगत के चलते भारतीय रेलवे की अहम योजना को बट्टा

लग रहा है।
10 करोड़ की लागत से बनाया गया है प्लांट, अफसर ने माना सप्लाई में समस्या है 
 10 करोड़ की लागत से मार्च 2017 में सिरगिट्टी में रेलनीर का प्लांट स्थापित किया गया। उद्देश्य था ट्रेनों में शुद्ध पानी की सहज सप्लाई। बिलासपुर मंडल के सीनियर डीसीएम पुलकित सिंघल का कहना है कि रेलनीर प्लांट में डिमांड से ज्यादा उत्पादन है, लेकिन समस्या उसकी सप्लाई में आ रही है। आईआरसीटीसी ने सप्लाई का नया ठेका कर दिया है। दो-तीन दिन में पानी बोतल सभी जगह पहुंचने लगेंगी। इस पर लगातार नजर रख रहे हैं। 
एक बोतल में सात रुपए ज्यादा, यात्रियों को मिलता ही नहीं रेलनीररेल नीर 12 बोतल का बाक्स 120 रुपए में स्टाल व पेंट्रीकार संचालकों को मिलता है। इसमें ट्रांसपोर्टिंग चार्ज अलग है। इसे 15 रुपए में बेचना होता है। ऐसे में एक बोतल में महज 1 या 2 रुपए ही बचता है। जबकि लोकल ब्रांड का पानी उन्हें 80 व 90 रुपए बाक्स की दर से मिलता है। इसे वे बेधड़क 20 रुपए प्रति बोतल के हिसाब से बेचते हैं। इसमें उन्हें 6 से 7 रुपए की अधिक कमाई होती है। इसलिए हर कोई लोकल ब्रांड का पानी बोतल ही बेचना पसंद करता है। लोकल ब्रांड की सप्लाई के खेल में अफसरों की भी भूमिका होती है।
बीकानेर एक्सप्रेस में सफर कर रही सावित्री वर्मा का कहना है कि ट्रेन में रेलनीर मिलता ही नहीं है। गर्मी इतनी है कि कोई भी पानी बोतल मिले लेना पड़ता है। किसी भी ब्रांड का पानी बोतल लो वह तो 20 रुपए में ही मिलता है। रेल नीर सस्ता है लेकिन रेलवे इसे उपलब्ध नहीं करवा पा रही है। प्रवीण पांडे का कहना है जितने भी ब्रांड के पानी बोतल मिलते हैं उसमें कोई फर्क नहीं लगता है। रेलनीर मिलता तो अवश्य लेते, लेकिन मिलता ही नहीं है। 
ऐन वक्त पर सप्लाई ठेका निरस्त 
बिलासपुर जंक्शन प्लेटफार्म के स्टालों पर रेलनीर की बोतल ही नजर आती है। लोकल ब्रांड रखने की अनुमति नहीं है। जनआहार, कमसम, फूड प्लाजा सहित 30 स्टालों में प्रतिदिन 600 बाक्स यानि कि 7200 बोतल रेलनीर की खपत है। आईआरसीटीसी के पास 1500 बाक्स की डिमांड है जो गर्मियों में बढ़कर 2600 बाक्स यानि 31 हजार 200 बोतल तक पहुंच गई है। 
सिरगिट्टी में प्रतिदिन 3800 बाक्स यानि 45 हजार बोतल का उत्पादन हो रहा है। इसके बावजूद यदि स्टेशनों तक रेलनीर नहीं पहुंच रहा है तो इसकी वजह सप्लायर है। रेलनीर की सप्लाई सड़क मार्ग से स्टेशनों तक करने का ठेका दिया जाता है। लोकल ब्रांड का पानी ट्रेनों तक पहुंचाने की गरज से अनियमितता का कारण दर्शाते हुए सप्लाई का ठेका पिछले महीने निरस्त कर दिया। नए ठेके के लिए प्रक्रिया चल रही है।

VADODARA : Almost a year after Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched India’s first bullet train project along with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe, the first consignment of Japanese-made goods for the prestigious Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train project has landed in Vadodara. The consignment which was shipped to Mumbai and later brought to Vadodara last week through road has reached the spot where the High Speed Rail Training Institute (HSRTI) is being set up by the National High Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) which is implementing the national high speed rail corridor project. HSRTI is being developed over a land area of five hectares at the campus of the National Academy of Indian Railways (NAIR) in Vadodara. On Sunday, Achal Khare, managing director of NHSRCL, visited the site where the work for laying the training tracks using the Japanese goods has started. The consignment includes 20 track slabs, 200 metre rails and reinforcement...

bars of 13 mm diameter. “The track slabs prepared from high strength concrete are presently manufactured only in Japan whose Shinkansen technology we are adopting for the high speed rail network,” Khare told TOI during his visit to the city, adding that the track slabs provide the required stability to run the high speed trains. “In future, these track slabs will be manufactured in the country,” he said, adding that even the 13 mm diameter reinforcement bars are presently not manufactured by any player in the country. For the total project length of 508 km, most of which will be on an elevated corridor, over one lakh such track slabs will be required for laying the tracks on which the bullet train will run. “The training tracks where Japanese contract workers and supervisors have started working with their Indian counterparts is expected to get ready by mid-January,” said Pradeep Ahirkar, chief project manager of NHSRCL. “A single track slab combines the strength of eight sleepers. We are setting two 100 metres training tracks at the site. While one training track of 100 metres will be for straight line, another of the same length will be for the curved line,” said a NHSRCL official, who has returned to Vadodara after undergoing training at Japan. “Once, the training tracks are ready and the construction of the hostel building gets over, we will start training of manpower from February,” he said. For preparing the training tracks, the sub soil quality of the ground was tested after which good quality of soil was used. “An embankment will be now prepared after which RCC bed will be laid and the track slabs will be placed above them. Finally, the rails will come over the track slabs,” the official said. HSRTI will provide advanced training modules on cutting edge technologies relating to high speed rails as it will have all those facilities which are available at HSRTI of JR-East Railway Company at Shin Shirakawa in Japan like the driver simulator, signal and telecom equipment, OHE and power supply equipment among others.

AHMEDABAD: A "pure vegetarian" man has filed a PIL in Gujarat high court, seeking directions to Indian Railways to either stop providing non-vegetarian food on trains or to segregate travellers based on their dietary preferences. The HC is likely to hear this PIL next week.
Advocate E E Saiyed filed the PIL after being "offended" at non-veg food served to fellow passengers in his compartment while he was traveling in Rajdhani Express earlier this month. "Vegetarians often feel embarrassed travelling by train when non-veg eaters are provided chicken and mutton while they are sitting next to them," he said.In his petition, Saiyed contended that he is “espousing a public cause” when he demands segregation of vegetarian and non-vegetarian passengers or to

make separate eating arrangements for non-vegetarians on trains.
“It is the government’s obligation to protect the right to food of every citizen by giving due effect to the fundamental rights under Article 21 and 25,” he argues in the petition.
The PIL is urging the HC to direct railway authorities to refrain from serving nonvegetarian food on trains. It demands that the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation website should be changed to segregate passengers according to their food choices at the time of online ticket booking and provide separate sitting arrangements for vegetarian and non-vegetarian passengers.
The HC is likely to hear this PIL next week.
