A senior railway officer of the Indian Railways told the media that the use of the 111-kilometre Lohardaga-Tori rail route will cut travel time between Ranchi and Delhi by at least two hours.
The Railway officer further added that Ranchi-Delhi Rajdhani special express train will stop at Tori, Daltonganj, Garhwa Road, Pt. Deendayal Upadhyay Junction, Prayag Raj, and Kanpur junction. The train will however not halt at the Lohardaga railway station.
However, the people of the Lohardaga district were distressed as the Delhi-Ranchi-Delhi Rajdhani special express train will not halt at the local station. Denizens of the Lohardaga district have pleaded to the local parliamentarians and MLAs to appeal to the Central government and the Indian Railways to extend the halt of the train at Lohardaga station.
Ranchi MP Sanjay Seth, speaking to media after the flag-off ceremony, said, “I will appeal to the Railway Minister to consider Lohardaga junction as a stoppage and also running the Ranchi-Rajdhani special express via Mesra-Barkakana-Hazaribagh route.”
However, the Chauparan express, during its journey via the Lohardaga-Tori rail route, will stop at the station.
A senior officer of the Indian Railways said that a successful trial on the 11km Lohardaga-Tori line took place in 2019. However, the railways was waiting for a green signal to operate trains on the rail route.

Nov 10 (13:28)   Railways may reduce AC local train fares

King765~   23 news posts
Entry# 5118293   News Entry# 469629         Tags   Past Edits
In a bid to increase the ridership of air-conditioned (AC) local trains on the Central and the Western Railway lines, the railway ministry is likely to undertake a reduction in fare prices and introduce more amenities soon.

Reduction in fare of the AC local trains along with steps to ‘popularise’ them and restructuring of their routes are some of the measures that are being studied by the Railway Board, the apex body of all zonal railways.
...
more...

The fare structure of the suburban AC local trains will be based on metro fare structure finalised by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) or the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).

Earlier, the Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC) had suggested the fare structure of AC local trains on par with metro fares in Mumbai and Delhi.

Chairman of the Railway Board Suneet Sharma who visited the Central and Western Railways on Monday stated that the feedback regarding AC local trains has been received from the zonal railway officials and passengers.

“We want to increase the patronage of the AC local trains as the new trains will be coming in both Central and Western Railway lines. The logistics regarding fare structure and routes are being studied and decisions will be taken accordingly,” said Sharma.

Further, the railway ministry has plans to convert all local train services to AC local trains in the future.

Meanwhile, Sharma inaugurated a locomotive for the Kalka- Shimla railway track at Parel and also inspected the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT), its executive lounge and the newly inaugurated restaurant on wheels at the P’D Mello entrance of the station.

Nov 10 (13:23)   Railway Ministry working to roll out new set of private train tenders by February: Sources

King765~   23 news posts
Entry# 5118290   News Entry# 469628         Tags   Past Edits
Last year, when Indian Railways invited bids to operate private trains on its network, only two entities had evinced interest at the financial bidding stage

After the lukewarm response to its first set of tenders for private trains and criticism from the industry about the structure of the tender, the Ministry of Railways is now working to roll out a new set of tenders by February next year, multiple government officials told Moneycontrol.
...
more...

“The Railway Board is working with private players and other industry experts in order to come up with the new set of tenders for private train operations in the country and we are looking to come out with the tenders by next year,” a senior government official said, adding that the tenders should be floated by February.

Officials from the Railway Ministry say that they will look to address all the previous concerns of the industry through the new tenders.

Sweetening the deal

The Railway Board is also considering reducing haulage charges for private train operators after a certain period, a senior government official told Moneycontrol.

COVID-19 Vaccine

Frequently Asked Questions

A vaccine works by mimicking a natural infection. A vaccine not only induces immune response to protect people from any future COVID-19 infection, but also helps quickly build herd immunity to put an end to the pandemic. Herd immunity occurs when a sufficient percentage of a population becomes immune to a disease, making the spread of disease from person to person unlikely. The good news is that SARS-CoV-2 virus has been fairly stable, which increases the viability of a vaccine.

There are broadly four types of vaccine — one, a vaccine based on the whole virus (this could be either inactivated, or an attenuated [weakened] virus vaccine); two, a non-replicating viral vector vaccine that uses a benign virus as vector that carries the antigen of SARS-CoV; three, nucleic-acid vaccines that have genetic material like DNA and RNA of antigens like spike protein given to a person, helping human cells decode genetic material and produce the vaccine; and four, protein subunit vaccine wherein the recombinant proteins of SARS-COV-2 along with an adjuvant (booster) is given as a vaccine.

Vaccine development is a long, complex process. Unlike drugs that are given to people with a diseased, vaccines are given to healthy people and also vulnerable sections such as children, pregnant women and the elderly. So rigorous tests are compulsory. History says that the fastest time it took to develop a vaccine is five years, but it usually takes double or sometimes triple that time.

The Ministry is also considering incentives for private train operators, if they use locally made coaches and engines.

“A proposal is being considered where private train operators will either be given tax rebates or a subsidy to use locally made coaches and engines on the trains they want to operate,” a senior government official told Moneycontrol.

Tepid response

In August, the Ministry had put on hold the tender for 151 private trains along 109 major routes at an estimated investment of Rs 30,000 crore due to poor participation by private firms.

Senior officials from Indian Railway Catering & Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) also said that they are in touch with the Indian Railways (IR) about the tenders for private trains and will participate in the tender when the ministry comes out with the new contracts.

IRCTC officials said that they are consulting with the Ministry of Railways in order to reduce the bottlenecks that existed in the tenders to operate private trains the first time around.

Last year, on July 1, IR had begun the formal process of allowing private trains on 109 routes — a process that aimed to, for the first time, open one of the government’s most prominent enterprises. The national transporter planned to introduce private trains on its network in phases, with the first dozen due to start running in the 2023-24 financial year and all 151 by 2027.

However, only two bidders, IRCTC and Megha Engineering & Infrastructures, evinced interest at the financial bidding stage. This, officials said, raised questions on the purpose of running trains via private players.

Competitor and regulator

The biggest concern for the industry was the lack of a regulator for Railway operations.

“Indian Railways cannot be both a competitor and a regulator. There is, no doubt, a need for a technical regulator. Even though the railways kept emphasising on fair regulation, there has to be a contractual commitment for a project to be financed,” a senior official from a potential bidder had told Moneycontrol.

Industry participants also expect IR to ease the terms of the revenue-sharing agreement in the bidding norms, in order to avoid monopolisation of passenger traffic and routes.

Furthermore, market experts said that in order to make private train operations more attractive, the government should follow the route taken in the aviation sector and de-regulate the market, opening it up to private players.

“The government, instead of bidding out train operations on particular routes, can even look to bid out slots and timing to private players. This will certainly increase participation from the industry,” said a market expert from Goldman Sachs.

He added that there is currently a lot of scepticism around operating private trains as not many companies have evinced interest. Also, the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the financial matrices of many companies.

Rs 30,000 crore investment projection

According to the ministry, the planned investment was estimated at around Rs 30,000 crore, and a majority of the rakes (70 percent) would have to be manufactured in India; private entities cleared to run the train services shall be responsible for financing, procuring, operating and maintaining the trains. The winning bidders were to be provided a concession period of 35 years on revenue.

Boost to Rail Electrification in North East :Indian Railways achieved a Milestone in Rail Electrification by commissioning of RaninagarJalpaiguri - Guwahati 382RKM. Brahmaputra Mail commenced maiden run on electric traction from Kamakhya.
Earlier, Indian Railways'Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR)zone has successfully completed the electrification work of a total of 649 Route Kilometer (RKM)/ 1294 Tonne Kilometer (TKM) of High-Density Network (HDN) from Katihar to Guwahati, the Ministry of Railways said.
According to an official release, the electrification work will now connect all major cities of the country with Guwahati on seamless electric traction. This is yet another effort by NFR for capital connectivity by green transportation, the release said.
With the electrification of railway network till Guwahati, Indian Railways has said that it will benefit the common people and overall economy in the following ways:
-Additional Rajdhani express trains can now be introduced for North-East states like Manipur, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Sikkim.
-15 pairs of existing trains originating/terminating at Kamakhya/Guwahati can run with an additional passenger coach by eliminating one power car, thus improving passenger throughput.
-NF railway have difficult terrain with a large number of graded sections, curves, bridges. Electric traction shall eliminate need for multi diesel locos as higher HP electric engines can maintain higher speed in gradient section.
-Running time between Guwahati to Katihar / Malda Town is likely to reduce by up to 2 hours as trains can now move at higher speed due to better acceleration / deceleration.
-Line capacity enhancement of up to 10-15% shall lead to reducing level of saturation on many of the sections on the NF Railway allowing more coaching trains to run.
