May 05 2020 (12:32)   With restrictions eased, lakhs of migrants clamour to leave city

Nearly all of the 2.08 lakh surveyed migrant workers in the city are scrambling to leave for their home regions as the state eases its lockdown restrictions. The departure means at least a six-month blow to manufacturing and construction activities, insiders said.
Follow latest updates on the COVID-19 pandemic here
Trade union representatives, industry experts and welfare activists, who have the pulse of the migrant population reported two central factors driving the exodus: a lack of money and a psychosis of fear around the unexpected emergence of Covid cases in certain areas, as
illustrated by the outbreak in Hongasandra.
According to the Minister for Primary and Secondary Education, Suresh Kumar, close to 35,000 migrant workers left the city in 24-hour-period from Sunday to Monday since travel bans were loosened.
“On buses, about 30,000 people left for their home villages on Sunday. Meanwhile, four special trains also transported 4,800 migrants to Jharkhand and other states. Two more trains will evacuate migrants to Rajasthan and Bihar today, plus 550 buses will also operate to other destinations,” the Minister said on Monday.
Trade union representative, Vijay Bhaskar, General Secretary of the AITUC, described the mood of the migrant workforce as anxious and tense. “Many workers are in a hurry to return to their home villages, lest they die unknown in the city, of the disease,” he said.
Many may not return
H M Gopal Gowda, State Vice President of the Centre of India Trade Union (CITU), said he expected upto 2 lakh of the workers to leave the city, which will have serious implications for the construction industry, the manufacturing sector (especially MSMEs) and even small business like restaurants. 
About how many fleeing migrants will eventually return, no one seems to know. The consensus among union leaders and industry experts is that many will not return. “The situation will only become clear after four months,” said N P Swamy, President of the Karnataka State Construction Workers Central Union.
Suresh Hari, Vice President of the Real Estate Developers of India (Bangalore), said that the exit of the workforce adds an uncertain new element to the Covid pandemic. “If the workforce is absent for a short period, we can recover, but if it is longer than two quarters, it could take over a year for us to bounce back,” he said.
As things stand, the situation poses severe challenges, added Sathyanand M, an AITUC member and a labour advisor for thirty large manufacturing firms in the city.
“The engineering industry, especially the automotive spare parts industry, which is made up of 50% of contractual or temporary workers will be hard hit,” Sathyanand said.
He added that all factories in and around the city, regardless of product, would be hit. “The only one to weather through the crisis is the Pharma industry which also has many temporary workers,” he added. 
'Secretive trains worsening situation'
Trade Union Leaders lambasted the secretive system of providing train tickets to migrants seeking to leave the state, saying that this was exacerbating a climate of fear.
“There is no information being released to the public domain on how to purchase the tickets, at what time these special trains leave and how many people are permitted onboard. Instead, police contact migrant workers directly via their phones, using numbers provided by labour contractors,” said Vijay Bhaskar, General Secretary of the AITUC.
“Had this process been done in the open, with a schedule released, much of this panic could have been avoided,” Bhaskar added.
Bhaskar and other trade union leaders said that close to 15,000 migrants were being held in Freedom Park because there were not enough trains to repatriate them to their home states. 
N P Swamy of the Karnataka State Construction Workers Central Union pointed out that since there is no possibility of transporting two lakh migrants to their home states in the next few days, the discussions are underway to have the Labour Department give these people Rs 5,000 for the next three months. 
“At least in this way, the people will have some money and with construction activities resuming, they can also work until the transport grid stabilizes to get them back home,” he said.
E-passes for travel to districts
People wishing to travel from Bengaluru to other districts on their own can get travel passes online. 
Police said these are one-way, one-time and one-day passes. On two-wheelers, only the rider will be allowed. Light motor vehicles can have three adults, including the driver, and two children aged under 12. 
Go to, submit your phone number and get a one-time password (OTP). You'll have to enter your personal details, including vehicle number. The pass can be shown at the district checkpoint. You can continue the journey after clearing a medical checkup.

Assuming you are settled in comfort at your home with reasonable supplies to get you through for a few more months. Politicians cannot take care of their health or needs, so what do you expect they are going to do? You want to hold them hostage for an indefinite period just because you are afraid more about the loss of their labour over their lives?

See how you are jumping from one justification to another, from migrants being misinformed then being economically illiterate then calling them alcoholics and finally you are scapegoating them for spreading the disease. Cheap hatred is all you're spewing here.
The government woke up only during the last week of March when the first case was recorded months before, but everybody like you here were acting like the disease was somewhere far away in Nigeria and all of a sudden you expect that people who earn daily wages and have nothing to live
on must play along? If only you were as serious and educated in February and early March as you are pretending right now, you may have saved the world.
If you are not being paid or given rations since the lockdown and nobody can assure you when or if you ever will be, the first thing you'd wish is that you were at home, free or by spending upto your last penny.
And I'd like to hear from you this: Are you responding to all this from your home or at a government shelter you're giving 5-star reviews about?

If money was disbursed, then it would have been just as quickly taken out of their hands by means of rent or debt. These workers in the unorganised sector are not registered with bank accounts for the few 100s they make, and cash disbursement has never reached the intended beneficiary in our societies.
Whatever little money they have, they are trying to buy their way back home, and carefully arranging these trains is a good step.

The package announced so far has no mention of them, like they don't exist. Now that they are walking out, these guys have a problem.
To the people who are patronising them here and trying to pass the blame on them for a virus from abroad which had spread largely due to the delayed response from the officials side, and want to imprison them in camps (aapke lockdown toh apne ghar mein hoga, chalenge aap camp pe?!) like the Karnataka govt while tourists, pilgrims, students and infected VIPs from abroad are being brought in and out both undercover and in broad daylight, there's no need for any of their gyaan.

This isn't a debate, friend. If they want to go back, they should be allowed to, as safely as possible. And for you to understand, just imagine yourself in one such camp without any money or support in a different state or country. Do quit talking nonsense like they're doing this for free travel or cheap booze and things like that, comes off like your projecting your own tastes and preferences through such virtue-signalling. Peace.

Mar 13 2020 (21:21)   Kerala to soon get a daily train to Rameswaram

: Kerala will soon get a daily train to Rameswaram. The service of the Thiruvananthapuram-Madurai
Amritha Express will soon be extended to Rameswaram.
The railways had earlier objected to Kerala's demand for extending the Amritha Express, by citing that
there wasn't sufcient time to ll water and clean the train.
the railways will now overcome this technical obstacle by modernising the rake link of the
Amritha Express and interchanging it with the Chennai-Rameswaram Express.
The Chennai-Rameswaram train that reaches Rameswaram by 8.35 am will commence its journey to
Kerala as Amritha Express at 12 noon. Similarly, the Amrita Express that reaches Rameswaram at 2 pm
will proceed as the train to Chennai at 5 pm.
The Amrita Express, currently with 19 coaches, will now get an additional rst class cum second AC coach
and 2 sleeper coaches. The two sleeper coaches will be added on March 15.
Also, the Punalur-Madurai passenger (56700/01 via Kollam-Thiruvanthapuram) will run as an express
train from June 30 onwards. The new train number is 16729/30.
Punalur-Madurai Express will increase speed by 1 hour and Madurai-Punalur Express by 20 minutes. One
3rd AC and three sleeper coaches have been allocated additionally.
The railways is also considering extending the Guruvayur-Punalur passenger as an intercity express to

As it is, there is a connecting train from Rameswaram for Amritha at Madurai (56721/56722) for the present timings. This extension isn't really best suited for Kerala Rameswaram travel except for Palakkad maybe which still needs and also depends on this as its prime connection to Trivandrum.
A new train can be run via Coimbatore either upto Ernakulam or Mangalore.

There used to be two pairs of trains. One had a similar schedule to Amritha right now. Coimbatore had only one connection with Rameswaram which was an overnight express which also had slip coaches from Palakkad.
Coimbatore had daytime trains running upto Madurai.

Would be better if instead of just taking over the RSA with Boat Mail, with the rake of Amritha at RMM they can bring in another overnight daily to MAQ/ERS/CBE.

Jan 26 2020 (22:19)   Railways’ internal row over Ernakulam pit-line to affect Kerala's chances for new trains

The mechanical section has put up an objection against the commissioning, pointing out that catwalk on the left side of the pit-line was incomplete. Kochi: A row between mechanical and manufacturing sections of the Indian Railways over commissioning of the third pit-line at Ernakulam could spell doom for Kerala’s demand for new trains.The construction of the third pit-line, for carrying out maintenance works of trains, completed more than a month ago, is yet to be commissioned.
The delay comes amidst railway board's insistence that more trains cannot be allotted to Kerala as there is no facility to carry out the maintenance works. The pit-line that got the nod in 2010
was completed only last month, at the end of a 10-year-long wait.The quarrel is over a catwalk (a tall concrete deck) that allows workers to walk along the pit-line to carry out the repair works.
The mechanical section has put up an objection against the commissioning, pointing out that catwalk on the left side of the pit-line was incomplete. Only 50 per cent of the catwalk could be constructed due to lack of funds. However, the right side has a full-length catwalk.The first pit-line with just one catwalk has been functioning for years in the same yard. Of the five pit-lines at Thiruvananthapuram central, only one has a catwalk. No issue was pointed over any of these.
One pit-line can handle at least eight (two rakes each) new trains.With the Inter Railway Time Table Conference, which decides on new train services, set to meet in Bengaluru from February 26 to February 28, the non-commissioning of the pit-line would prove to be a setback for Kerala.No new services can be recommended from Ernakulam.
The manufacturing section has already said that it was ready to arrange for an alternative system for the catwalk and that there was no other obstacle for the pit-line.The mechanical section is left with the task of inviting contracts and recruiting workers. The manufacturing section had to struggle to get hold of the Rs 3.5 crore for completing the pit-line works.
The money was sanctioned only four months ago after south railway general manager intervened in the issue.The pit-line has to be functional for Ernakulam to get daily trains to Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Salem.
Also, to fulfil the projects promised in 2018, including Ernakulam Rameswaram bi-weekly, Velankanni service via Palakkad-Pollachi and Pondicherry weekly train.However, allegations have been raised against some of the railway officers.Various outfits, including Kerala Bengaluru Train Users' Forum, All Kerala Train Users' Association, and Thrissur Railway Passengers' Association, have urged the Members of Parliament from Kerala to immediately intervene in the issue.

This sort of objection is futile since it's clear that the manufacturing divisions have for a long time been severely underfunded and even small infrastructural projects getting completed is a miracle. If it isn't sorted out sooner, then it's rather a deliberate scapegoating effort to stall the sanctioning of new trains.

‘Given the government’s attitude, we may be forced to take up path of confrontation’
India Railwaymen’s Federation (AIRF), the largest railway union which is also the largest employees union in the country, is considering an indefinite strike to protest against the “indiscriminate” privatisation of operating trains, stations, production units, among others.
The move comes against the backdrop of Railways forming a committee of Secretaries to fast-track the privatisation of 50 stations, following a letter from NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant. This, however, was just one step forward in the series of moves taken towards privatisation by Indian Railways, which the unions have opposed. The Sangh Parivar supported Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh is among the various unions that have opposed this move. Given the government’s attitude, “we may be forced to consider a path of confrontation,”AIRF General Secretary Shiv Gopal Mishra told BusinessLine. “The Railway Minister has already asked the Chairman Railway Board to loop in the Unions transparently about Railways’ plan to ‘improve services’ by involving private sector,” said Mishra.
Not new
AIRF pointed out that the Railways being pushed towards privatisation is not new. Even under UPA regime, Montek Singh Ahluwalia, who was Deputy Chairman, Planning Commission (NITI Aayog’s previous avatar) had written a similar letter to the then CRB. But, the committee was not formed.
In a letter to the Railway Minister a day before the committee was formed, AIRF’s Mishra warned, “Any move to shift the existing time-tested system to an uncertain system, by involving private agencies in train operation, is bound to create uncalled for industrial unrest in the Indian Railways as the railwaymen are badly perturbed on this account.”
The committee was formed within a day of NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant writing to the Railway Board Chairman VK Yadav, in which Kant referred to running 150 trains through private mode and the slow-pace of railway stations modernisation.
Kant informed the Railway Board Chairman that he had already discussed the “issue” with Railway Minister Piyush Goyal.
Handing over certain profit earning trains to private agencies would....further deteriorate the financial health of Indian Railways, AIRF said. It further pointed out that railways is already operating semi-high speed trains made in railways’ production units at cheaper prices than those made globally.
Mishra said after the discussions with CRB, the AIRF will convene a meeting of its working committee to chart the future action. “More or less, workers have agreed for a strike. As per the process followed for strike, the Union will have to hold a secret ballot of employees, where at least half of the employees will have to vote in favour of a strike.
To cover all the employees of Railways, a strike that spans six shifts is required. Otherwise, certain segment of railway employees will be involved, who may be singled out and targeted by government,” explained Mishra. In the last few years, Railway employees have voted for indefinite strikes in 2016 and 2013. But, the last indefinite strike of railways was held almost 45 years ago in 1974. The BMS has also opposed the new move. “Our federation in the Railways, Bharatiya Railway Mazdoor Sangh, has written to the Railway Minister protesting the step taken by NITI Aayog. People in NITI Aayog have no understanding of the ground realities of the country. Railways is the backbone of our economy. Government going away from manufacturing and services sectors will do no good for the country,” said BMS national executive member Girish Arya.
AIRF objected to the formation of the committee, comprising CEO NITI Aayog Amitabh Kant, Chairman Railway Board, Secretary Department of Economic Affairs, Secretary, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs to fast-track station modernisation, approve bidding documents and ensure award of projects.

If India tries to join the list of countries where public transport (the name itself is a giveaway, don't you think?) has been privatized, then very quickly, whatever economic growth is possible will bite the dust. One or two developed countries in the West had tried to privatize railways, where they have excellent laws and fair popular representation in determining roadmapping services. Still, rail infra in UK for example is pathetic compared to other state run entities in Europe and they are considering nationalizing all over again.
Now, we were talking
about developed countries with established frameworks and laws for the consumer. What happens in a country like India? Privatization here would be like breaking Afghanistan into pieces and being handed over to warlords for rule.
Private players will suck these organizations dry at their own expense and like how Insurance companies in India (other than LIC) charge higher and higher premiums and settle lesser and lesser claims, what if X,Y, or Z company suddenly decide Chennai-Bangalore fares should be 200% of Varanasi-Kanpur route?, Or if the same companies ask for a ban on local/passenger trains along certain sections to run more Humsafar and Tejas trains? In the US, you will have a profiteering charge and within 100 days, the companies would be investigated and thrown out. And in India?
We don't have political ethics to prevent private taking advantage of public nor a robust justice system to support them when they are abused. Socialism has its own problems, but socialism's problems are preferable to oligarchic problems.

If IR retains rake maintenance, technical staff (Locopilots, guards) etc., then what exactly do the private entities supposedly bring? When you throw the word privatization, I am not bothered with ancillary services like OBHS, catering etc. which IR benefits if they outsource/leverage PPP as it isn't their primary business model.
My concern regarding privatization is w.r.t how chunks of routes are balkanized and sold to the highest bidders, and instead of zonal divisions like SR,CR,SCR etc., we will end up with something like Tier I traffic network, Tier 2 traffic
network etc. zones segregated based on profitability.
A business model when privatized add considerable amounts of volatility and in India where justice mechanism is inefficient and lawmakers don't really understand industry, private players crave profitability mainly through 2 means: deregulation and arbitrary price setting, both of which can be disastrous for IR.
You gave a sensible example of TRAI and BSNL. Now, let me ask you, if the 5 odd surviving competitors (Jio, Bharti Airtel etc.) together decided to increase tariffs by 100%, what option do we have? You can be sure BSNL won't seek to compete and match them at least since the government has its eyes on votes. Same as my example for Insurance companies and LIC. But what happens if an entity like BSNL does not exist and is made to shrivel for the sake of these companies?
And like telephone operators drop certain plans fro their offer and airliners call off certain routes when they don't get their desired profits, how much of that volatility can IR withstand?
Customer preferences are already well-established, when people opt for railways, they are doing so for the value proposition and the benefit of lower cost. Cleanliness, Punctuality etc. are standards that must be met for all kinds of passengers and that is no excuse nor any sense to suggest privatizing will help these parameters. Private players, unless they are bringing something to the table, like adding serious infra (futuristic Bullet/Metro projects), should not be allowed to set prices/takeover routes etc.

One Sri Vishnu, who said that he did not start the campaign but supports it, then edited the name of the station in Kannada on Google Maps.One
Arun Jawagal, a pro-Kannada activist, told India Today that the local language is a must along with English on Google Maps in respective states so that people can understand what they are searching for.
"Maybe some people who wanted to create trouble between people of the two states would have changed it," Arun Jawagal said.One Sefali, from Bengaluru, said that the state language along with English is necessary and such minor mistakes can certainly lead to conflicts.
Another Bengalurean Satish said that what had happened on Google Maps should not have happened "but thankfully it was fixed later".
